About this project

Hello!  I am working on a brand new role playing game that brings the fantasy of traditional RPGs to space.  I have worked on this project as a hobby for about a year, and now it is at the point where all my ideas are in the game, it is balanced, and ready for people to play.  I am releasing the game for free to everyone, as a way for them to test and see if it's a game that interests them, and if it is, further support my work on this passion project.

The rule book for the game along with all character sheets are completely free for download via my website.  My goal is to make the barrier of entrance for my game, and the RPG genre as a whole, as low as possible to further grow the hobby.  With the base game you will get all the rules explaining the mechanics of the game, example items, and a few missions to start off a campaign story.  I would love to see people take the game and make it their own, and to add their own creativity and take the games in unique directions.  

Why do I need funding for this project then?  That is where the long term goals come in.  I want to be able to further dedicate a large amount of time to adding content and features, as well as take community feedback, and to expand the world of Endless Frontier both game play and lore wise.  If this campaign is successfully funded I will be able to put in a minimum of 200 hours of work to drastically increase the content quantity and quality.  With version 2, it is my intention to turn it into an e-book for sale in online markets.  Supporters on Kickstarter will not have to worry about that because version 2 will be available to all backers of $5 or more, along with all updates and fixes after that.

Some of the content I already have lined up is: a full campaign with a minimum of twelve missions, more learned skills, a robust crafting system, many more perks, more weapon and enemy profiles, as well as ship combat mechanics.  Along the way there will be many quality of life changes that get implemented as well.  During this time I want to take as much community feedback as I can.  Just as crowdsourcing for funding works so well, so does crowdsourcing ideas, and there are a lot good ideas out there that I am not aware of I'm sure - so come help create a better game whether you donate or not, I appreciate the input.

Rewards are all digital, so I will be working on them during the fundraising period and giving them out as soon as the campaign ends, no waiting necessary.  Once the campaign is successfully funded I will be able to devote my full energies on version 2 which will be out in a month and a half at the latest.  Thank you for your interest and I hope you enjoy the current game!

Risks and challenges

This is my first business venture and kickstarter campaign, so the first hurdle is inexperience. I feel that being an avid self learner I have the skills overcome whatever challenge I might face.

The second challenge would be quality control to make sure my content is up to par. My first line of defense against this is having a play-testing group that I play weekly with who give live feedback and on what does and doesn't work. In addition, I will have an open channel of communication for anyone with comments and suggestions, which I can then adapt into the game.

The project over all is low risk as the base game speaks for my work and the extent of my abilities. All the rewards are digital so there will be no shipping issues. If you like it, support it.
