Hi there, my name is Robert Gray. I'm passionate about tabletop game design, world building, social gaming, and collective storytelling. That's why I've spent the last decade creating a tactical tabletop fantasy role playing game, called Realm of Strife.

Realm of Strife features tactical turn based combat, a dynamic class system, in depth character customization and open ended role playing. But more than just a rule set, Realm of Strife is also a pre-built fantasy setting that provides a rich back drop for a limitless number of adventures or campaigns, capable of stretching over not just months but years.

One of the best parts about Realm of Strife is that its free-to-play. All of the necessary rules, information, and content is available on the Realm of Strife website, downloadable and free of charge.

Of course the down side of free is that as a creator, designing and maintaining Realm of Strife  actually costs me money. I'm 36 years old, married with two beautiful little girls (that are already well on their way to being total geeks like their dad), and work a full time job to support my family. This limits the time and resources and I can put into creating games. 

By joining the Realm of Strife Patron's Guild you become part of an exclusive group of individuals that are dedicated to seeing development of this amazing game continue. Not only that, you also get to be part of the world building experience, forever leaving your mark on the Realm of Strife.

Goals
$55 of $95 per month
Maintenance Budget: 
Its difficult to justify spending additional development hours to provide a free-to-play game when it is actually costing me money to do so. At $95 per month my basic costs will be covered. This is the amount required for care and maintenance of Realm of Strife, meaning the fees for maintaining the website, corporate accounting, bank fees and the intellectual property rights. None of this money accumulates over time, let alone ends up in my pockets, its essentially spent as soon as it comes in.
