About Thousand Tales of the Empire

This Patreon is to support the Thousand Tales project, encouraging regular releases of content including maps, stories, setting lore, a role playing game, miniature and terrain tips, and more!

You can see all the content here:
The Thousand Tales of the Empire

What are my goals with this project, and what might Patrons find within the website?

Stories
Told by an elder Zhani Talespinner, in time the stories that explain the world and the history will be revealed.

Maps
The Empire spans across the majority of a continent, and some would say that it covers most of the world. Over time, each nation will receive a map and descriptions of each location of significance.

Deep Delves
A single location or organization will receive in-depth coverage and information. This might be anything from cities, ruins, battlegrounds, noble houses, criminal syndicates, mercenary companies, and religious schisms

Terrain Creation
Not only will there be monthly tips and tricks to make your miniature terrain look weathered, but there will also be some instructions on how to utilize household items. Additionally, in time there will be files to be used for either CNC laser cutting or 3d Printing. These files will be released under a Creative Commons license and can be used by any manufacturer without further approval.

Miniatures
Want to see what is included in some of the more popular releases? Not only will I be unboxing miniatures and terrain which will be utilized within ongoing campaigns, but I will also be giving painting and kitbashing suggestions.

Inhabitants
Not only will flora and fauna native to the world be detailed and expanded upon, but characters will also be given detailed history and motivations.

Of course, that is just the tip of the iceberg on what we're looking to develop. Other projects are planned, but require much more support to help get us there!


Frequency
While new content will be released, depending on the number of Patrons subscribed will determine how frequently new content is released. As each goal is reached, another release will be planned monthly, from the following list:

25 Patrons - Monthly Releases
One map and accompanying details.
Those with the Warlock Tier will be able to vote on the location.

50 Patrons - Roleplaying
Once the Patreon reaches this point, a tabletop role playing game will begin development, and regular information will be released. Once the RPG is released, further supplements will come out at a regular basis.

100 Patrons - Deep Delve
One location or organization already mentioned will receive more in-depth coverage, possibly including maps and artwork.
Those with the Warlock Tier will be able to vote on the subject of this Deep Delve.

250 Patrons - Rogue’s Gallery
One a month a character, faction, or creature that dwells within the world (or outside of it) shall be given more in-depth details about their history and motivations.
Those with the Warlock Tier will be able to vote on which character is revealed.
