Question for the Gallery

Up front information, this is a topic I've been discussing with my wife for a while and find that she is highly supportive of the concept that I am about to share, however, she has the same concerns about it that I do on the topic.

Okay, with that out of the way lets get to the background and meat of the topic at hand. I have been approached by a number of people locally to attempt to create a Titansgrave or Force Grey style web show for Swords & Wizardry / General OSR style gameplay.  This is, to me, a great idea as both shows have gone a long way to broadening the player base and the understanding of their respective systems (Fantasy*Age and D&D 5e respectively).

The big problem is that while I have been approached by people who think this is a great idea those people are not Frog God Games, or anyone with media knowledge or savvy.  In other words these are random blokes who have either seen me DM or have heard about my DMing.  This presents a pretty big issue to the concept, unlike Geek and Sundry or the Nerdist I have no budget and no ability to create or support such a show.  In other words, It would be a webcam pointed at my kitchen table if I were to attempt this.

So that brings us to the "Question for the Gallery" as the post header exclaims.  Should I move forward with this and does anyone have any ideas (outside of Kickstarter) to get something like this off the ground?  Further question, should I even try I mean, the talents behind the two examples are professionals with acting careers and facial recognition ... me?  I'm just some schlub from Yuengling Town.

  1. First thought is Patreon is another way to do this. It wouldn't help with upfront cost, but it would guarantee monthly income of some sort.

    1. Hey Riley, thanks for the feedback. I was thinking of that as well, and see the same issue with upfront costs that you bring up. Still, as you said a well supported patreon would bring in funds for continued operating costs.

The Robathen's Coin Parts 1 -3

A long time ago I released a short story on drivethrufiction called "The Rabathen's Coin - An Arame Tale" that was meant to be the start of a series staring a mysterious thief named Arame.  Well, five years later and I have sold maybe six copies.  With that in mind I figured I might as well break it up into two or three parts and post in on the blog.

Thoughts are welcome as I am always interested in what others think of my original works.



I.
The stench of rotten fish, sweat, mildewed wood and the ocean rose up from the black waters of the harbor in a visible mist that hung over the free trade city of Wickend adding to the already strong reek of human filth and cheap ale. The setting sun, unable to pierce the vile mist, washed over the crumbling buildings that lined the twisting streets of the Old District. From open doors and windows came the sounds of life, true life, of men laughing and boasting, of women flirting and dealing in their trades. To an outsider, the Old Distr…

I am starting to see a theme evolving here ... and it wasn't even planned.  Enjoy, and feedback is always welcomed!

Gate File 001 - First Approach
This is the next and the big project for the month of February for my Patreon and the one I want to push for public release in March/April.  The Gate File is being developed for 5th Edition SRD and will incorporate Modern rules and make suggestions as to that fact.















The Smoke Giant's Heir
A second 5th Edition SRD release, The Smoke Giant's Heir was originally meant to be published last July but ran into a number of difficulties including lost maps, Scribus and libre files becoming corrupted due to system failures as my tower died a slow and horrible death.  The Text is written out for this one but one map still needs to be redrawn and the layout needs to be put through Serif now that I have it back.


More Fantasy AgeI don't know yet what I want to do exactly but I want to start doing a fan version of my favorite MMO using Green Ronin's Fantasy Age system.  Obviously this will be a "serial numbers filed off" deal for the possibility …
