The App of Holding
A mobile app to assist players of fantasy tabletop games with gold & gear
- Manage gold
- easy to use inventory
- Spend gold to buy gear
It will launch for Android and IOS and as you can see below most of the work is already done.
It has three screens.
The Coin Purse
Using the coin purse you can add or subtract gold with the click of a button. This is the gold you loot off orcs & other baddies. It is all on the honor system so don't be a cheaty pants.
Using gold you may purchase general items or even magical items from the store. It is important to note in these dark times that this purchase IS NOT a micro-transaction. You are using the gold you collect during play. The store will come stocked with many common items that you would find in most any campaign (rope, arrows, very basic armor). It will also have a collection of magic items generated by backers. Depending on the level of success of the Kickstarter campaign, magic items may rotate in and out monthly.
Using the bag you can view your items, drop items, see your total weight, read the lore of your items, and add a custom item.
First, this is what you need to know. Some features are locked unless you support the project here or through Patreon. Backing this project or me (the wizard behind the app) will unlock:
- Adding custom items & gear into your inventory
- All the really cool magic items in the store
So choose wisely.
Bag +1: You get the full app. Everything unlocked. All the goodies.
Bag +2: You get the full app and as a bonus you get my two other creations that are not free. The Tartle RPG Tool is an app for generating content for tabletop games. Vulcan Sacrifice is a short story-based game.
Bag +3: Include your name or your character's name in the lore of a non-magic item.
Bag +4: Create a magic item for inclusion in the store in the game & be in the lore. (item has to be reasonable. We will work together)
I gave my patrons on Patreon early access to designing magic items.
And if funding goes beyond my initial goal? What then?
The Alchemy Lab
Above is my stretch goal. If I can get up to this amount (1K US) I will add an alchemy system in the app that will help with brewing potions and poisons. This would roll out as an update after the app is finished. Brewing potions will be interactive and a bit random to make it exciting -- perhaps even dangerous. I think this is a good fit for the App of Holding because I have always felt the books' systems are a little hard to manage as a player.
About the Wizard & why you should give me gold
I am an indie developer on a quest to be the wizard you searched for in all those RPG games. I have been making apps and games for over two years for mobile and non-mobile devices. You can view all my work from this page here. For credibility's sake, some of my more noteworthy projects are:
Tartle RPG Tool - an app to generate content for tabletop games
Monster Bean Evolution - a casual evolution game
Deep Sea Fish Kebab - a retro game with fish
Cube Zoid - a game with a novel concept
Risks and challenges
I work alone. Bad things can happen. I intend on finishing this project but if the unexpected were to happen it could delay completion of the app. The app is, however, almost completely done.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
