The GMD Online Patreon Story 2018-2019

Firstly… Thank You to all of you GMD Online Patreons! Without you, this would not have been possible.

Let us take a look of what we have achieved together over the past Year!

That’s right it has been one amazing year already! So much has been achieved and even more to look forward to next year!

So lets look over the past year together shall we?

What has been achieved in 1 Year of GMD Online Patreon?

  • Together we have play tested both online and around the table the CORE RPG.
  • The RPG has seen many tweeks over the past year and most likely be tweeked before we hit the Kickstarter in 2020!
  • We have even seen two Covers and you the GMD Patreons decided between you which one was to be used! It was very close indeed.
  • Monthly New Perks are developed as a result of a Goal Reward and has been expanding the list, providing heroes with alot of options.
  • Most importantly, GMD CORE RPG has been received so far warmly. It is exciting times.

GMD Online has already developed several adventures ready for release. These are currently waiting for Artwork. Some of the Adventures you the GMD Online Patreons have had the pleasure of playing. I cannot wait to hear how your very own game sessions go!

I plan to start releaseing the Adventures in Packs and as Kickstarters over the next year.

Watch this space!

All Adventures and Campaign Settings will be fully illustrated with high quality battlemaps.

As for CORE Settings.

Work has started developing:

  • LoR
  • Starguard
  • Starfall
  • GAU

There are also 8 more Campaign Settings in the pipeline too! More on these in 2020!

This started as an idea early 2019 and has soared!

Thanks to you all, GMD Online has started development of three Roleplaying Comics.

  • Starguard: The Vanashing
  • LoR: Exodus
  • Starfall: Salvage (Halloween Special)

The heroes choose what they do just like in any roleplaying game. But instead of a Games Masters Narrative. Their actions are immortalised on the pages of a comic book!

Starguard is on it’s 14th page! LoR has it’s Front cover and Page one should be completed within the next couple of weeks. The Salvage comic is about to start Character art proofing ready to get a Comic cover made.

2020 will see more comic titles opening for players to take part.

A special thanks to FDG Fractured Delirium who have stepped up to organise the Games Club!

Games include: Role Playing Games such as D&D, Savage Worlds, World of Darkness, Warhammer etc.. Played on a variety of Virtual Table Top Applications such as FG2, TTS, R20, NWN2 & Talespire.

No game is complete without artwork. We have been lucky that the artists at GMDOnline have provided us all with some amazing art.

With more due to finish before the end of 2019!

I have a list of Scene Rewards to do as well as character portraits for upgrades and new sign ups!

The development of atmospheric gaming music has started and I hope to have some tracks ready once the CORE RPG Kickstarter is underway. But priority right now is the development of the CORE RPG.

That said…

I have been developing the Starguard Theme tune, The LoR Theme Tune, Hyperboraeos Track, Diomedes Track, Forbidden Forest Track, Krigos Pursuit Track.

All being created on a Komplete S66 and Fruity Loops DAW software.

Some of the GMD Patreons have heard snippets and the feedback has been encouraging.

Make sure to join me on Dicord in the Patrson channel so you can get to hear snippets too or discuss any of the projects!

WAR Core has gone from paper scrap to Googles Docs for development!

This is extremely exciting as part of the WAR CORE Project Phase is the development of it’s Settings and Miniature Ranges.

The design has been on hold as we accelerate the CORE RPG completion, but in 2020 the design will accelerate, hoping for some playtesting Early to Mid 2020 using Tabletop Simulator.

To coincide with the WAR CORE rules GMD Online started to develop 3D Plastic Printed Miniatures.

I plan to invest in a high quality printer. But am deliberating between plastic and resin. I have seen some great Resin printers and think this would make high quality and high detailed miniatures for use with the CORE RPG & WAR CORE Settings.

Although development has slowed due to the need to get artwork and design completed for CORE RPG.

If all goes to plan, I hope to be able to get our first miniature completed before 2020. If it does not then early 2020 should see the first appearance of our Miniature Range.

GMD has started to develop Video Tutorials for the CORE RPG. These are currently underdevelopment and still need editing. That said they are slowly appearing on the website for Champions and above!

The plan is to host a variety of workshops for GMing advice, Designing Adventure and Campaigns sometime in 2020.

This year started off well with a Live Stream channel, but due to unforseen personal reasons I was unable to continue. That said, I was able to continue with recording the games and posting them to YouTube. I plan to return to Twitch in 2020 Once I have purchased a few back screen for my new digs.

This year the GMD Online Patreons have made it possible for production of a Tabletop Simulator Playtest Interface and a Fantasy Grounds 2 Interface.

We have utilised both but currently are using the Fantasy Grounds Interface to run our LoR CORE Setting campaign.

I will be returning to Tabletop Simulator in 2020 for more play testing, to test the Live Table Products.

There are currently 3 Board games in development on Scrap paper which are waiting transference to Google Docs.

Once these games have been added to google docs, I will organise play tests in Tabletop Simulator.

The games are that raw in design they only have working titles, these titles will be added to a Poll when the time comes to vote for what you would like the games to be called.

I hope to see the play testing commence Mid 2020.

Throughout the year I have been developing FREE Figure Flats to give away for use in your games.

I have also created some high quality Tokens for Patreons as well as some unique figure flats of various styles. This will continue in 2020. There are still more Figure Flats due before the years ends!

I am incredibly excited about this project that has started it’s cards development phase.

The rules have been written and cards are being created for play testing!

A mix of Cards and Dice for some exciting battle. The Patreons are in th emiddle of deciding upon the name for this game, which I plan to announce before Christmas. Some of you may have even seen a preview of one of the Hero cards.

To honor all my Patreons, they will have a character appear as a hero in the collection.

Design continues currently and play testing should start early 2020. Depending how smoothly the CORE RPG development goes.

Thank you to all GMD Online Supporters of ALL TIERS!

None of this would have been possible without you lovely people!

What can we achieve in 2019/2020?

Only you can decide!
