Hi! I'm Tempest. I'm the author of MazeWorld, a different kind of tabletop RPG, which I have been working on and running as the sole GM since February 2011. I am a French-born RPG enthusiast in all of its forms, whether tabletop or computer games, and a bit of a nerd in a lot of respects.

MazeWorld is a different kind of tabletop RPG because it has been entirely written and designed from scratch. It does not use any existing system, and it is primarily focused as a singleplayer (as in, one GM and one player) experience.

Keep an eye out on the monthly posts to check on my progress and see what's planned for the future!

My main objective is to be able to call the game "finished"; not in the sense that I want to stop working on MzW one day, but in the sense that the game's core (mechanics, quests, stories) reaches a finished, presentable state, for two major purposes.
1) The game must be finished so that it can then be used as a base for future projects, such as the aforementioned core rulebook and database. MzW is more than just a game - it is an entire system, and an universe of its own, on which I want to continue building.
2) The game must be finished, so that I can stop being the only Game Master. MzW shouldn't be leashed solely to my presence and free time; I want it played and run by other people! It would also allow me to free up time; it is difficult to manage real life, authoring and designing, community managing AND game mastering all at once, after all!

Since I first began working on, and running this game in 2011, initially as an experiment intended for a tiny community of friends and curious visitors on IRC, I have since grown and become more experienced in many aspects; through MazeWorld, I've learned to become a better writer, a better experienced game mechanics designer, and a more experienced community manager, among other things. Through working on this game, I've also found and gathered a wonderful, ever-supportive community of people; players, supporters and curious spectators alike, many of which I am lucky to call my friends.

Without the support of these friends, some of which have been there since day one, I wouldn't be able to launch this Patreon page. I want to give my players the ability to support me on more than a one-time or occasional way, and in turn I want to continue thanking and rewarding these players and supporters, without which I wouldn't have been able to continue working on this game.

As with most creative ventures, the creative juices must be kept running by a functional mind and body, and the only way to do so, as with most things in life, is to have the financial support to keep working on what I love. With your support, not only can I receive invaluable help in continuing to work on a life's passion, but I will also be able to plan for, and fund future ventures related to the game and perhaps reach out to a wider audience.

Thanks for your interest, and hopefully we will see you in the Mazes soon!

Goals
$24 of $30 per month
There is (currently) no real goal I'm aiming for in terms of monthly earnings at the moment (although as the situation evolves, so may my goals and objectives, so keep an eye out!). The set goal of $30/mo is more symbolic than anything; it essentially represents $1 per day, as I essentially spend at least a few hours, every waking day of my life, thinking about and working on the game.

Any amount I receive through Patreon will be essentially used for one of two things:

  • Investing into the game.
  • Cutting into living expenses and keep the creative juices running by keeping myself running!
