    Hey everyone! Thanks for all the kind words about Rat Queens! It comes out September 25th, so let your LCS know you want it!

    Even though we're months away from release, Roc and I have been doing a weekly web comic to get readers familiar with the characters and world before the series comes out. You can check it out specifically here: http://www.facebook.com/media/set/?s...5590838&type=1

    And here's the very first one we did.


    If you like what you see, join up our facebook page www.facebook.com/ratqueens . New webcomic every Wednesday!

    Any questions, I'll answer em!

    just seems like something they shouldn't be so tight to hold onto....imagine if dragon was copyrighted people would be forced to rename them "Air Lizards" Or "Thunder Snakes"

    Yeah but Tolkien actually coined the term "Hobbit" for his characters and named his book as such. Seems pretty reasonable to me.
    You wouldn't expect BKV to get away with calling an alien race in Saga the Klingons or something.

    there's a difference the hobbits are generally just midgets in the fantasy realm so the race appears in a lot of stories games and movies you can call them whatever you want but at the end of the day it's still a hobbit

    Klingon's aren't as widely used in Science Fiction as an alien type as the hobbits are in fantasy fiction as a race

    For a start, I don't think the word "midget" is particularly acceptable for people of a shorter stature. And no, Hobbits are a specific kind of fantasy race, one Tolkien created himself. Most other fantasy settings use "Halflings" as a rough equivalent of the Hobbit. And Klingons are Star Trek-exclusive because they're copyrighted, I believe.

    what I'm trying to say is that hobbits appear in lots of stories games comics and movies even if they don't go by the hobbit title while Klingon's are exclusive to star trek so comparing hobbits to them is stupid

    Hobbits are exclusive to the works of J.R.R. Tolkein. At least authorized usage. Tolkein's estate owns that word for that distinct species (small, hairy humans). No one can use it without their permission. It is the same as Star Trek owning the word Klingons to describe violent humanoids with ridges on their forehead.

    You may think you've small, hairy humans called Hobbits outside of Tolkein's work. You are wrong.
