Oracle of the Void is a card search engine and deck builder built for the Legend of the Five Rings CCG.   When the CCG ended, Don Eisele (that's me!) who authored the Oracle took over the operation of the service.

Last year my day job had a fire that flooded our data center so we're moving everything to the cloud. Because of this I've been getting my AWS feet wet.

So... it's not quite ready, but in the next few months we will be moved from
linux/apache/mysql/php/jquery to: AWS/s3/dynamodb/lambda/elasticsearch/jquery/jsrender.
I've got the basic "search" structure done, and it's looking pretty good. It also fixes some structural problems I originally had, so it does stuff like showing the images for the version of the card you are searching for when doing a set search, and elasticsearch just plain does a lot more advanced/better searching.

In addition I'm able to better separate out functions so I will be able to add more games or even versions of games.

I also am writing this as a fully-realized API. In fact, my own web front end uses the same API that other things would be able to use.

I also got a pile of stuff we never got entered that we will be uploading (various scans if different reprints) that we should be getting closer to being complete.

Since there will be some ongoing costs with the Oracle, I'm starting this Patreon to cover my costs and hopefully help further expansion.    If anyone wishes to get more games/etc added into the oracle, please contact me.

Currently no specific benefits but:

* Samurai are the community leaders who strongly show their support

* Any samurai who are curious can get a link to see the development version of the Oracle (may break at any time as it's still pretty rough)

* I'll give a free Iaido or Aikido lesson to any Samurai who wants to make the trip to Manhattan, Ks :)

* I intend that the samurai tier will eventually get perks like access to bigger images in the Oracle, etc.
