So, last year, for a brief period of time, we had a Patreon project where we were distributing adventures, monsters, etc. I closed the project because it was too much at the time and I felt like it was becoming a chore to turn out stuff week after week. I also felt like the pay by month approach was wrong.
The plan is to rekindle the FAL Patreon and offer something very concrete and tangible. So, starting in June, we will begin releasing stories from Far Away Land twice a month.
Each story will be presented as a chapter. The format will be pdf. Each chapter will be about 700 words in length and will feature two illustrations FAL style. The stories will cover characters and events in FAL, some of which are outlined in the Tales of Awesome and others which are brand new. We have about 20 of these completely finished already (so 10 months worth). This allows me a buffer to work on more stories without feeling rushed while pursuing other FAL and game projects. Most of the stories consist of two or more parts.
The plan is to eventually take the stories released through Patreon and compile them into a full-color storybook. An example page is below.
Finally, the font being used is Funky Map Font by Glynn Seal/MonkeyBlood Design. I thought it was a fanatstic font and the commercial license is dirt cheap. So, if you are in need of a neat font, check out www.monkeyblooddesign.co.uk and get in contact with Glynn. Font designers need love too!
