It is with great pleasure that I would like you all to know that OPR is back!
First off let me say that I am incredibly thankful for all of the support that you guys have given me over the past couple of months, and even though I remained quiet I have read all of your messages and they put a smile on my face. Thank you, thank you, thank you, you cannot imagine how much you guys mean to me!
So anyway, let’s get to business, as I’m sure that’s what you’ve all been waiting for.
Over the past few weeks I’ve been thinking again and again that I should get back to the project, however I was extremely hesitant because of the way it affected me last time around. Before I started the Patreon I was already investing a lot of time in the project, and I thought that by starting the Patreon I would feel a bit better about the amount of time that I was investing in it.
That backfired however, as instead of feeling good with the amount of time I was investing, I started to feel the pressure to invest even more time in the project. By the end of it I was trying to have new updates every week, which meant that I was working during my lunch times, after work, during the weekend… constantly.
So if I want the project to move on, it has to change to give me some breathing room.
“How will you do that?” you ask curiously.
Easy, I’m working on a 2nd edition of all games.
“Are you crazy? Isn’t that going to take up even more of your time?” you say in shock.
Not really, no.
You see, what takes up the majority of my time is managing the army books, as I have to be constantly on top of all new model releases as well as fix anything that was wrong with any existing iterations of the books.
So in order to ease the pressure all Patreon backers that pledge $5+ will get access to the points calculation system. Not only that, but they will also have access to the 2nd edition beta and will be part of the development process on a secret forum.
Sounds exciting? It is!
This means that the most avid fans are going to be able to not only create rules for models which I haven’t had the time to make yet, but they will also be able to fully create their own custom armies. Who knows, maybe someone makes an army so awesome that we might eve make it official (*hint*).
We are going to create a completely new point calculation system, and with your help I will hopefully be able to catch any unbalances before things go out to the general public. This means that any new units that you create are not going to be compatible with the existing rules and armies, so don’t get things mixed up.
Anyway, that’s it for now, I’ll make a new post as soon as there is something else to announce, thanks again for all the support!
