I QUIT (my other job)

2D Print, 3D Print, Collaboration, Game Update, Podcast

Hi everyone,

As many of you already know, OPR is run fully and solely by one person, which is me (hi!).

For the past 7 years I’ve been working on OPR in my free time, and have never paid myself a single cent from the money we made via subscriptions or store sales. In my mind I’ve always seen that money as a vote of confidence on your part, and it felt wrong to take that money for myself when I could instead invest it into providing you all with more content.

That was all very easy to manage whilst OPR was pretty small, but over the last few years the project has skyrocketed in popularity and has grown to be one of the top 10 biggest wargaming Patreons in the world, and by now this is in no way a one-man project anymore. Whilst I still take care of the majority of things, there are lots of people I hire to do stuff that I can’t, such as all of the awesome illustrations, paper miniatures and 3D print miniatures, and by now there are 10-15 people involved in OPR’s production every month.

I tried as hard as I could to keep doing this in my free time whilst still working a full-time job, which admittedly has not been very good for my own health over the past year, and so I’ve decided to finally pull the trigger and quit my job to dedicate myself to OPR full-time. By now OPR brings in enough money that I can pay myself a regular salary without having to feel guilty about compromising on releases, so don’t worry about things slowing down.

If anything, this means that I’ll now have more time to dedicate myself to OPR without going absolutely insane, and hopefully I’ll be able to improve my work-life balance as well, which has been suffering for too long now. I feel incredibly fortunate to be able to do this, and hope that I can continue to provide you all with awesome games, miniatures, and more in the future. Thank you all for your support!

Alright, enough of that now, let’s get to the meat of this news post. :)


New Army Updates

Today we’re continuing with our army refresh updates, tackling the Infected Colonies. Until now this army was serviceable, but was lacking some oomph, with most units feeling very samey. In this new version we’ve overhauled the majority of units in the army, and have also added an army-wide Undead special rule to spice things up.

Here’s the full changelog:

  • Added new unit: Runners
  • All units now have the Undead rule
  • Hunter Champion and Hunters lost Fast but gained Ambush
  • Infected Champion now has Plague Command
  • Scientists can now upgrade to Psychic(2)
  • Zombies now have Regeneration
  • Infected Dogs now have Scout and Rending
  • Boomers now have more attacks and Poison
  • Chelonians now have more attacks and new upgrades
  • Infected Swarms now have Strider and Blast(3)
  • Ravens now have an additional AP(1) attack
  • Vultures now have Ambush and new upgrades

Speaking of the Undead rule, over time we’ve found that this has become one of the most valuable special rules in the game, and that it gave a little bit too much staying power to your units. In order to balance things out a little, units now take wounds from Undead on rolls of 1-2, instead of only on rolls of 1.

Here’s all of the armies that have been updated:

  • Grimdark – Havoc Brother Disciples
  • Fantasy – Ghostly Undead
  • Fantasy – Mummified Undead
  • Fantasy – Ossified Undead
  • Fantasy – Shadow Stalkers
  • Fantasy – Vampiric Undead

Dungeons & Glory, OPR Podcast, Holiday Sale + More

Hi everyone,

Hope you’re having happy holidays and are able to spend some time with your loved ones. I’ll try to keep today’s update as brief as possible to not steal too much of your time, come watch me fail!

Let’s get to it…

Good luck to all participants!


Dungeons & Glory Available Now

A long long time ago, we had started working on a very early draft of a one-page RPG called Dungeons & Glory, which aimed at streamlining RPG mechanics into a super simple and beginner-friendly format.

Over the past few weeks I’ve been testing out a lot of different RPG systems with a few of my friends, and decided to pick up the old D&G again, and give it another shot. This has lead to a complete re-working of the core system, as well as the addition of a useful GM guide, which introduces lots of different things to play around with.

Right now we’re planning on keeping this system as a one-off game, but who knows, one day it may very well lead to the creation of the infamous OPRPG…

Get the game here: https://onepagerules.com/portfolio/one-off-games/


OnePageFools Podcast

The world of OPR seems to be ever-expanding, and now community members Jimbo and Lucas have put together a new podcast dedicated to all things OPR called OnePageFools!

Listen, like and follow here:


Jakob’s Path + Heroes

December is the last month in which our Grimdark Future narrative campaign Jakob’s Path is going to be available on Patreon, and as a special treat we have now released 2D models for all of the campaign’s heroes, which are fully compatible with our previously released Battle Brothers and Orc Marauders models!

Get the models here: https://www.patreon.com/posts/43388556


Saurians + AoF: Arena Season 2

With this week’s release of the Saurians 2D Army Pack, we’ve added the Saurians warband to AoF:A S02, and with this the season has been completed!

It’s really cool to see that now with each arena game having 6 hex boards, 6 warbands and 2 common assets, the game feels a lot more complete, and allows for a ton of match ups.

There’s also the warband creation rules, which allow you to use any and all miniatures you have as well, and we’re looking forward to seeing how people use the system to add all sorts of crazy warbands!

Get the rules and models here: https://www.patreon.com/posts/43388556

Note that the warbands are designed to be compatible with WHU miniatures, and with an upcoming lizard warband we’ll make sure to update the Saurian’s warband composition rules to make them compatible if needed.

Finally, I usually don’t do this, but I feel like I need to address you all directly.

This year has been a very rough one for everyone. Many of us have been going through a lot of hard stuff that frankly nobody deserved. We’ve seen family and friends die, become gravely ill, lose their jobs, their house, their mental heath, their dreams, their future, and many fates worse than that.

I know that I’m just some random guy on the internet, and that I can’t change any of the things that happened, but I hope that this project has helped at least some of you see some light in the dark. I’ve been steering this ship by myself for many years now, but this year has been something else, and I’ve pushed myself as hard as I could to bring you all as much gaming content as possible to hopefully keep you distracted for at least a moment.

Gaming has always been a means for me to get together with family and friends to have a laugh, and I think there’s nothing that we need more than the people we love near us in these times of isolation. If you or someone you know could use some time off this pandemic, and you think that gaming could help them, then please share this project with them. All of the games are free, there are free models, and we have a lovely community that can help you get set up for playing online if needed.

I have been incredibly fortunate to be able to turn my dreams into a reality, but I know that there are many people out there that haven’t been as lucky as me. I’ve spent many years of my life going through a lot of difficult things, and I know what it feels like to be looking up from rock bottom and see no hope. I feel a huge responsibility towards everyone that has supported the project to make the most out of it and provide everyone with as much value as I possibly can. I hope that in this I have succeeded.

From the bottom of my heart, I want to thank everyone that has believed in the project, and I hope that I can keep putting a smile on your face for many more years to come.

With all my love,
Gaetano
