Hello out there on the other side of this screen.

My gratitude goes out to those who have supported me on my way and are willing to help me further achieve my goal: Creating the ever expanding (fictional) Metaverse called StarArena.

The Globe is a big place, so I better introduce myself:
My name is PJay "BabyAngel" Frith and I am a self employed Carpenter who, when in between jobs, works on his true passion: Designing & Drawing a Cyber-Battle Card & Boardgame.


I must point out: I'm a bit of a grumpy old man. But I think this is mainly due to the run-of-the-mill carpentry work I must do to make a living. Don't get me wrong: I do love honest woodwork and the smell of 'royal oak' whilst crafting a piece of furniture or an entire interior, for days on end! But lately I just can't shake off the awkward feeling that I am in the wrong place at the right time... The call of duty seems to come from elsewhere...

My hands have proven capable: To_Build_Houses... Yet the fingers are yearning for the more delicate touch of pencil to paper on a daily basis in pursuit of the Action Packed Adventures that I have in mind for the: #AtomicBabyClones!

These are specialized genetically engineered Infantry-Soldiers that continuously battle Cyber-Terrorism that plagues the commonwealth of The Arcade! The year is 2520, Mother Earth is no longer fertile and inhabited by the human race whom have scattered in all directions, although most seek refuge in the Metaverse. This is a Digital-Domain that is governed by a 'Stratocracy' that is perpetually under martial law and their prime directive commands: Code is Law, Protect The Core!

No one can calculate the dimensions of this Cyber-Space, leaving plenty of gaps for unregistered users to enter this Virtual-Reality. Among the multitudes of Malware that have become Mythical Monsters, or hordes of Techno-Thieves, are those known as the: 'Outlaws!' These believe themselves to be freedom fighters and claim 'Liberty for all Arcadeans!' These consist of a wide range in variety, from Tribal to Paramilitary. But are further too diverse to form a united front. The Metaverse is so vast and in eternal conflict between Order & Chaos! At any given time: A Cyberwar Rages! The more religious fanatics proclaim that the Core is an Oracle, intended as Shareware to enrich _and not enslave_ all electronic entities.

To gain citizenship to The Arcade, one must do mandatory military service. But there is a short route for the Young & Brave, or the Old & Cunning: An open Battle Tournament wherein the Victor is granted Sanctuary! This is: The StarArena, a Game-Portal to that other Dimension!



Are you willing to invest in a Tabletop Cyber-Combat Card & Boardgame?

It would take daily drawing for months and To_Be_Honest; Once I start, I'd never want to stop! Before you even consider to commit any coin to the cause, let me give you a breakdown of the achievements so far: In small captions!

Let us begin with the joyous conclusion: Half the Work is already Done!

My aim is: to create a Customizable-Card-Game and/or Deck-Building-Game that can be further enhanced with a surprisingly one of a kind Tabletop_Gameboard! At first the focus will remain on creating the physical version that one can hold in their hands while ironing out the final beta-bugs. Then the work-area will be expanded to the digital domain and onto mobile-devices. The target is (one-on-one) card-battles on Phones and (multi-player) Game-Portal tabletop battles in combination with a Tablet!

So? What have we:
• Let us begin with the Gameboards, which are half of the (ad)venture.

"Be Victorious or be Vanquished on this Strategic Multi-Levelled Rotating Tabletop Boardgame! As you Battle your way to the Top to gain The Grand-Prize of Sanctuary and Take The Coins!!"

These Game-Portals have undergone several revisions over the years concerning graphics and technical game enhancing upgrades yet unseen in tabletop boardgames. In 2015 your narrator and creator of the StarArena gradually 'optimized' the design over 44 Pre-Production Proto-Types and will be submitted for Rewards to Patrons with big hearts.

All this can be captured in one sentence; This Table-Top-Sensation Is A Kick-Ass War-Game!! These luxury deluxe game-units are UV-printed on polyvinyl foam board, assembled and shipped by yours truly!

Order Yours Today and Help this GameSmith on His Way. Use PayPal or Credit-Card. Your Personal Game-Portal will be Sent-Out on the first following business day. Only Available Here Via Patreon!

So? What 'else' have we:
• The other half of the (ad)venture: the Game-cards, these come in three variations:
  1. Hardware-Cards: These contain Character Artwork and represent the 'Strength' a players pawn has on the StarArena Gameboard (...or played as TCG only. These have (fictional) Dual-Hard-Drives to show the Download-Capacity & Battle-Values of said card.
  2. Software-Cards: In this day and age are best explained as Apps, these are essentially Battle-Options and have; A Download-Cost, Free-Space needed to Activate the App. A SW-Card Adds Battle-Value to your Active HW-Card in Play and can win you the Battle!
  3. Sim-Cards: The latest addition to the Game-Mechanics in this MetaVerse, SIM is short for Simulation. Also called 'scene' cards; this is a separate card-stack that effects game conditions for all players; Advantage to some, Misfortune for others



So there you have it; the Game-Cards (aka: Battle-Cards, Cyber-Cards) in a nutshell! Long story short; These have been in the making 'on and off' for longer and shorter periods of time during the last 20 years. But as I write these words, I am glad to announce; The Card-Designs have been Battle-Tested and proven 'Optimized and Combat Ready!'

Game-Cards-Production Overview:
  • Final-Graphic-Design: 100% Complete!
  • 130 Hardware-Cards: 100% Complete!
  • 520 Software-Cards: ± 10/ 20% Done...
  • 100 Sim-Cards, Also: ± 10/ 20% Done...
As you can see, this is where some serious 'Fun' still needs to be done:



  • Drawing & Filling SW & SIM-Cards!
  • As my drawing style shifted somewhat over the years;
  • I decided to Redraw the Oldies and create Fresh Card-Art!
  • As you may well observe; I still draw like they did in the 20th Century!
  • Meaning: There could be some Original Artwork rewarded to Patrons for on their walls!
  • ...and: There is a production plan in place!

"The fastest way for me to generate Artwork is to commit to: Drawing Comics! (...like when I was twenty something, published under the name of TheBabyHype.) Weekly/Monthly fast paced cyberwar hack & slash battle orientated Cyber-Comics that give a continuous impression of the Metaverse and produce plenty of panels to reallocate towards Cyber-Cards!" Like so... Only with a little more time to spend on them?


NOTE: These Ready-To-Print PDF's can be found in the 'Comics & Cards' section!

Only; The Patrons will get New-Booster-Packs _after a completed comic_Ahead Of Time before the Free-Loaders get their hands on them! ...Until the Game becomes available on your phone;
First View & Play of Cute & Brute Battle-Comics & Game-Cards, is what I can do for You!



Click the image above for a: Card-Battle_Preview.

It is here where I ask you to consider donating Coin or Credit towards The StarArena and become a Patron so that I may full fill my task of completing a Kick-Ass Cyber-War-Game! When and/or If you decide to back the project, this will be a huge step forward for me, your humble narrator, to changing his occupation from 'Wood to (full time) Game~Smith!' For this I would be grateful with the deepest sincerity and I will continue the Battle with the White Paper and supply you with Royal Rewards fit for Kings & Queens!
