First Post: An Introduction
My name is David Hill.
Monday, I ran into some money troubles, so I came up with an idea. I’d offer my services as a writer at below my normal rates, on a tight deadline and with open terms. The only condition was that I needed immediate payment. You can find more details about this here at my personal blog.
What happened surprised me.
A near stranger but loose associate from my Twitter account said that he couldn’t provide the full 200$ I was asking for, but would instead contribute 50$ to the project, if three other patrons would. You can find out more about his idea here. Thing is, he wanted the four contributors to come up with the game idea, then he wanted to see it released as a Creative Commons licensed product. You see, Creative Commons is a big deal right now in the gaming industry, thanks to a few specific titles, the biggest of which is Catalyst Game Labs‘ Eclipse Phase.
Within a few hours, we had four patrons. We had the money gathered to make sure I was cool with things.
Collectively, they came up with a concept. This blog is the real-time log of my progress and development.
This is easily the most fascinating work I’ve done in the RPG industry. It’s ambitious, fun and exciting. Let’s collectively hope it takes off.
Oh yeah: There will be spoilers.
