Hello,

I'm writing a deep fantasy story about a land of societies all struggling to live amongst "slow" storms, mythical beasts, and political conflict. This world houses a number of "origins", or places from where all magic travels. The people of this world eventually learn this when a third origin appears in lands to the north, as it causes a mass exodus of foreign societies down into the lands our story mainly focuses. Due to many stories of unheard of magic and beasts, the various city-states eventually conclude that a number of the species and magical energy around them must be unnatural. Humanity and other sentient cultures begin to react, since they all feel various levels of responsibility with regards to this revelation.

I want to continue writing this story, even while living out of my car. I don't believe wealthy families get exclusive opportunities to make great things and enjoy the time to start franchises or build businesses. I've got this thing in my head and it's definitely something many people would support. So I am going to try. If you feel the least bit inclined after seeing content you like, please share this and don't hold back discussing this story with your friends. I keep up with social media and I have a will to always give back to people who might be the reason I can live under a roof again and not need to shower at the gym.

As far as the goal of this patreon, I am solely hoping to have a modest place to live while I finish the book and also create video content for another project on the side, RubberDorky. Since you might be wondering, I will say clearly right now - I will always update exactly how much focus is being put into this book if it does change. For now, you can be assured this is my focus over anything I do that you might be familiar with. I have a lot of faith in this story. If we get to roughly $1,000, I will get a place, quit my job temporarily, and produce chapters and lore constantly. Until then, I will work as much as I can on this universe, and ensure you will at least get light levels of content every week. I expect to have a large part of the story written by the end of 2019, with almost all the world building completed and histories & lore released to the higher tier contributors.

Tiers
Explorers
$1 or more per month

This is the tier for anyone who wants a strong taste of the world. It will earn you a sort of encyclopedia of various things, and some short stories about the characters to provide insight into who they are. This tier contains possibly the most raw information, and will maybe give writers plenty of ideas for their worldbuilding.


Descriptions of characters (accompanied by DnD style character sheets), fauna & flora, diseases, food & drink, sentient species such as humans, dwarf-like peoples, and the elves.

Scholars
$5 or more per month

This tier has enough storytelling for a typical fan of reading. If you are subscribed to this level, you will always receive written histories from the world. Any known lore and known mapping is going to be at your disposal.


((Includes "Explorer" rewards))

Readers
$10 or more per month

Chapter releases! You are omnipotent and will get chapters as they're written, as well as unknown lore and maps of places no one has been to yet. Moreover, when the book is published on Amazon, I'll make sure you get a free epub file with at least the finished book and any literature on the worldbuilding.

I can LIVE on this. I will find a place, move myself out of my car and into a room, with a bed and easy access to a shower and a kitchen!
This is an exciting place to be because it holds many possibilities. I'll be able to take almost all my free time and invest it into getting this book written. I will give so much back if this is ever reached. If people love the story this much so far, I will give out tons of free copies to the supporters, and I will look into getting this printed to I can send out signed hardcopies of the book. I know artists whom I'd commission for art, I would write music with my experience as a songwriter, but most of all hold the general policy of giving back as much as humanly possible. I just want to live like anyone else. Past that, I'm fully prepared to give back or reinvest into this project if I get suggestions for ways to enhance this universe in enjoyable ways.
This goal holds other new things like the possibility of a comic series. I would really love to do that, given some of the visuals in this story. With this income, I would definitely start looking into doing this.
