Welcome welcome!
Hopefully you found this because you've found something I do useful, or you like one of the ideas i'd like to currently put time/funds towards but lack the capacity due to worrying about other things.  My current development work is mainly focused on Shroud of the Avatar, in the form of the SOTAHUD helper app, and various technical dives and guides to help players get used to the game.
Most of my projects are adventures of discovery and learning, as i'll pickup a new piece of technology or a new skill needed for each one, and try to cover the learning curve on here.

Current Projects:
[WINDOWS/LINUX] SotaHUD - A display program for Shroud of the Avatar, to present chatlog data in a useful format. Current includes features such as map functionality, exp tracking, damage breakdowns, and more.

Future projects:
SotaGUIDE - Remember the strategy guides of the 90s?  I'd like to do one for Shroud of the Avatar.  As Shroud is currently iterative, this would end up being a release by release guide, covering new things, revisiting old things, etc.  While it wouldn't be exhaustive, i'd do my best, although I will admit typesetting is not my forte and i'll have to learn layout skills.



Reward Disclaimer:
I will never pay gate or delay full releases for those who don't want to pay.  Everytime we hit a major revision x.x.0, it will go to the public as well as be posted here.
I know this will be a hit, but it's a principals thing, consider this your good deed for the year!
I make these tools to even the playing field, and make everyone's life easier, not to give an advantage to those who have or those who have not.   This patreon is just an answer to those who have asked for a way to throw money in my direction to do so without bitcoin.
I'll try to think of other unique rewards though!

About making testing builds a reward, I haven't decided yet.  I have a set of testers who i know can give me good feedback, and honestly i hate letting people toy with iterative works where features are half done or won't work right/etc.  I may throw it up as an obscene reward if the demand is there.

A huge thank you.
I appreciate that you've thought my little works are worth a bit of time you've put into earning money that you put my way.

Also it gets you access to patron only news updates, where i may or may not post regularly, but will try to be decent about, detailing the current work in progress as it flows. It won't get you builds, but it will let you know what's coming so you can wait in anticipation
Pledge $5 or more per creation
A bigger thank you, and a christmas card(if at least 30 days before christmas).

Also i will friend you on any game we share in common so you can tell when i'm goofing off.

Rent an umuri!
(plus all of the above)

You now have access to one hour of my time each month, for anything from a casual chat, to destroying me in a game of your choice, to homework help, to teaching you to dance.  Really the sky's the limit, so long as it can be done over the internet or you can come down and visit.  Hours can be banked within reason, so if you want to save them all for a 12 hour goat wrangling day, sure why not!

Beer money!

Well not really, but you'll get a huge thank you from me for support my little works!
Also I will try to get some decent splash art commissioned for the HUD, as well as this page.
