Hey, everyone! So I am Keith Ryan Kappel, and I'm a freelance writer best known for my extensive work with Fantasy Flight Games on their various RPG titles. I'm on Patreon to share RPG content that explores original settings and characters. All of the RPG content is System agnostic for the moment. In order to play you (or your friendly neighborhood GM) will need a copy of the Core Rulebook of your choice.

There are two main ongoing settings I'm focusing most of my efforts on over 2018.The first is the Werelings setting of Aetharil, where  woman-warriors of the Knights of the Lady Aether ride flying ursowls to protect their world against rabid werelings and the powerful kymermancers that control them. This setting already has two sizable short stories (with a third on the way) along with a lengthy 15,000+ word RPG setting book nearly completed.

The other setting is the Wandering Fighter Setting. Set to release before the new year, the Wandering Fighter is an unarmed combat setting similar to "brawler" and "fighter" video games. Throughout the course of the year, I will also be posting about a dozen system-neutral NPCs for use as opponents in a Wandering Fighter campaign, each with a gorgeous piece of original art by Sean Vrabel.

I truly want to thank all my Patrons for supporting me over these past two years. This has made a huge impact on my life, and my ability to keep my daily focus on writing (no matter if its for this Patreon, FFG, or other projects). Because of all of you, I've been able to replace my office chair, and now my computer, both of which were far past the must-replace phase of ownership. You've all also been incredibly patient with me when it comes to getting content up on schedule, and you've all helped with that too. I've been able to bring in some help to crack the whip and keep me on task, so next year should see much more regular updates!

Thank you all again, so much. Despite my experience as a writer, I struggle to find the words to properly thank each of you, but find me at a convention, and I'll do my best over a drink, some food, or some dice.

Once per year, there will be a 15,000 word Setting or Rules supplement available to all supporters at 2 dollars and above. In addition, there will be a monthly 500-1,000 word supplement to the annual product. That means in addition to a 15,000 word RPG, you get roughly 6,000-12,000 words of additional content over the course of the year!

Note that all RPG related content for the time being is system neutral.

Additionally, if I run a pick-up game at a convention, you get appraised of my schedule, and invited to all pick-up games. You also receive a GM favor at the table, such as preferred pre-gen PC selection, one re-roll, or one additional feat/talent/piece of equipment are all possibilities.

Hey! We just got back above 200! So the Werelings Sourcebook is back on! A big chunk of it is already written, so look forward to that sometime in the first half of next year!
