Overworldis creating The Land of Many Kings, a fantasy web serial
For just $1 a month, you'll have access to posts here on Patreon where you'll find snippets from the work of "Alfraed the Aberrant." These short, sweet posts will act as a glossary of terms/places/people/monsters written from the perspective of a character in the universe.
You'll also have access to chapters a week in advance!
For just $3 a month, you'll get access to a juicy, monthly "Author's Commentary" where I will address things like my process, my inspirations, things I was particularly pleased with, things I would edit more if I could, etc.
You'll also get access to chapters two weeks in advance! Includes perks from previous tiers.
For just $5 a month, your name will be listed on TLOMK site on the "Esteemed Patrons" page. I'll even write you a small in-universe bio to officially make you part of TLOMK lore! Includes perks from previous tiers.
Easy there. One thing at at a time.
Hi. You're at Overworld's Patreon page. Which makes me Overworld. And this is where you can become a subscriber to help support independent art. So, yeah, I guess that means I'm asking you for money.
...What sort of art?
A high fantasy/sword and sorcery web serial called The Land of Many Kings.
Okay, but there's a lot of high fantasy stuff out there on the interwebs. Why should I pay attention to this?
What I hope will distinguish TLOMK is a spirit of playfulness. Snippets of poems may flit about the work, ruminating digressions may splinter off, time and perspective may shift. The idea is to use a high fantasy setting and its trappings as a framework for a narrative adventurous in both subject and form. Think of it like this: TLOMK's universe is consistent, but it's structure may not be. It will feel like a cozy, good ol' fashioned dragons-and-knights tale, but I'm hoping it will feel like something else at the same time.
Sounds interesting, I guess. But what do I get for subscribing?
Well, for starters, as with most Patreon subscriptions, you get the satisfaction of knowing you're helping artists push toward financial independence and security. And greater financial security will ultimately mean more time for me to devote to creating this world and telling stories to my audience, which is what I really want to do.
Specifically, though, it can get you a few other benefits: extra, bite-sized portions of lore, access to a behind-the-scenes "Author's Commentary," and even a bit of agency over the story!
