Money tight but still wanting to help out? I hope you believe me when I say I know that feeling. I'd make the price lower but Patreon won't let me. As with the higher tiers, you'll still get access to the private Discord chat, and  if there's any benefits I can give in future games to reward your generosity without unbalancing things you'll see that added here. You'll also receive free M&F credits (at the max bonus rate, at that) equivalent to your pledge in USD ($1 -> 150 credits).

Traveler

$2
per month
Travelers get access to a private discord channel on the Lemuria Community Discord Server, as well as free M&F credits (at the max bonus rate, at that) equivalent to your pledge in USD ($2 -> 300 credits). Any future games will also give a reward for travelers, if I can find some logical way to reward you for your generosity that won't break the game.

About Andrew

Hey everyone, I'm Andrew Gwynn, primarily known for being the main developer/maintainer of Might & Fealty and I recently announced that I'm also working on my own game, Threads of Eternity. I'm also sometimes known to work on BattleMaster from time-to-time. My current projects are thus:

Might & Fealty is a military/political sandbox browser based game set in a persistent world, originally launched in 2014 and written using PHP and Symfony2, which I took over development and management of from Tom Vogt in August of 2017.

Threads of Eternity is my own game, currently in super early prototyping, which is designed as a role playing and survival browser-based sandbox, written using PHP and Symfony5. It's slowly evolving to be more a framework for game worlds than a game in itself. The user security systems for this actually ended up in BM (with some effort).

BattleMaster, like Might & Fealty, was also created by Tom, but launched in 2001 and has been, over the years overhauled and updated a number of times, with current management and most development handled by Delvin Anaris and Vita. I help out with database stuff, as both M&F and BM implement Doctrine ORM, as well as the occasional random feature here and there.

Stars Unbound is the game I dream of making, once I finish figuring out everything I need to make it. Like Threads or M&F, it's also character focused, but unlike everything else here is science-fiction and, if I get my way, will fully embrace the scope of what sci-fi games are these days. Yes, I really want to model an entire galaxy. I just need to figure out a good way to generate it first. I list this here because I am known to mention it from time to time.

Lemuria Community Site, is well, a website. The goal here is to eventually offer single sign on for the community, and any secondary sites, as well as concentrate some of the external calls the community makes. It's... under construction. I can't offer a good progress status on this because writing an OAuth2 & OpenID Connect platform from scratch is about as fun as it sounds, and I'm doing it the hard way largely so I can familiarize myself with this type of stuff--that and because the security I've seen other sites use irritates me.

Lemuria Discord Bot, sometimes referred to lovingly as "Lem-chan", you see her in some of the community discord servers. She has a bunch of commands you can use, either for server management or asking BM or M&F for info. You can invite her to your server if you want.
I made this page so you wonderful people could help me make not only a better M&F a reality, but my own game(s) a reality as well. Most of your contributions will go to pay the bills, but I'll likely pay some of them forward to other deserving projects and individuals (like the BM development team which needs some love).
Goals
$15.90 of $62.50 per month
With this we'll have paid for both Lemuria-chan and the main M&F server!
