Hey there internet!


Call me Kai, and welcome to my Patreon page!
Here is where I'll be posting stories set in my Apocalypse Nigh campaign, and other material for Open Hero Odyssey, a soon to be MMORPG platform.
Here's the premise: most RPGs have some sort of arbitrary class system, where proficiencies are granted based on class selection, and individual abilities are upgraded/gained as you level, with no consideration for the usage of said abilities. As a result, characters can feel niche, as there is little to no real distinction between two members of the same class.
Enter Open Hero Odyssey. There are no classes. It's a freeform hero building style, where you purchase ability score improvements and other abilities with proficiency points you earn by accomplishing tasks USING YOUR ABILITIES. The more you use a particular ability, the more experience you gain from it, granting you the ability to upgrade. This approach allows for more dynamic character building, and more distinction between players. Choose from a whole suite of different proficiencies that suit your style of play.
Patrons will be joining a community that is embarking on a journey.
This journey is multi-faceted. The first is the platform. I'm developing mechanics that define character creation, adventure, and environmental interaction. This platform is designed to be easy to use, learn, and deploy. Deployment brings me to the second facet, adaptability. Anyone can play on the platform, build a hero and play in my world, but that's only a small part of what I'm making. In addition to being able to create a hero and play, individuals will be able to create their own world, with their own quests and characters, and publish it on the platform for others to play in. These Game Masters will be able to set their own rules (within the confines of the mechanics) that define how leveling up works, the accessibility of magic in their world, as well as other details.
I hope by now you are interested in my vision! If you have any questions, please drop me a line. Any donations will be put toward making this vision a reality. If you want to help and/or possibly be involved, really drop me a line!
