Hello! I write a superhero webserial called Paternum, which can be found here. At it's heart, it's an extended coming-of-age story for the main character, Quinn Kaufman, as they become a superhero, in a world with more reasonable stakes and less powerful heroes than many superheroic worlds. The plot will not and will never involve villains threatening to destroy the universe, the galaxy, or even anything so mundane as simply the world, as I've always felt that such incredible stakes make it more difficult to tell a relatable, grounded story (and yes, I am aware of the irony of attempting to tell such a story with a super-powered main character).

I consider Paternum's primary influences to be the various versions of Spider-Man, J. C. McCrae's own superhero story Worm, and Drew Hayes' story SuperPowereds. I hope that the fans of such stories can find something to enjoy in mine as well.

This page is currently a placeholder, as I have not yet launched the serial itself. Paternum is planned to launch between June and September of 2019.
Tiers
Civilians
$1 or more per month

Access to a fan discord server where I'll check in to chat. You'll also have access to up-to-date downloads of the story in several formats (.epub, .mobi, and .pdf)

Includes Discord rewards
MLED Agents
$5 or more per month

There will occasionally be art as part of the story. This tier will get you access to a discord channel where I'll share the art a week before it's uploaded as part of the story.


You'll also get a name of your choice in Paternum's "Thank You" page!

Includes Discord rewards
Metahumans

This tier will get you access to a discord channel where I'll share scenes a week before they're uploaded as part of the story.


You'll also get a name of your choice in the "Special Thanks" section of Paternum's "Thank You!" page!

Includes Discord rewards
Superheroes
$25 or more per month

There will be one more restricted channel in the discord - there, I'll share art and scenes as they're finished, and ask for feedback and criticism. This will let you see things sooner than anyone else.


You'll also get a name of your choice in both the "True Heroes" section of Paternum's "Thank You" page and the "Acknowledgements" page of the story itself!

Includes Discord rewards
Beyond Heroic
$50 or more per month

This tier will truly take you above and beyond. Not only will you get all of the above benefits, I'll design a superpowered character based on you (or on specifications you supply) which will get an MLED File page, just like the other main characters of the series!

Includes Discord rewards
Goals

The host for Paternum currently costs approximately $20 a month. At this point, Paternum will be paying for its own continued existence online.
