About

Online platforms like Fantasy Grounds and Roll20 are becoming more and more popular, allowing friends to play RPGs together no matter haw far apart they are.

As fantasy has had it's feet for many years now, the worlds of Techno-magic, Scien-sorcery and Net-warriors are being explored by record numbers of players across the world.

 Vc Penguin's TECHLANDERS is a series of downloadable, digital asset packs for the many different settings, systems, stories and methods of battle that take place across the entire Sci-Fi RPG genre.

Each pack is made up of selections of 2d assets for use with digital RPG programs, and will include warriors, creatures, vehicles, terrain, map markers and more, all designed along the theme of the pack. These will be made available on DriveThruRPG for download, but getting in early with this kickstarter will snowball the amount of content supplied and may even score you some exclusive goodies for your game.

Some sketches for future packs.

 This is a passion project with the aim of creating some truly epic artwork to the sci-fi scene and help players all over the world experience the futuristic and possibly post-apocalyptic settings of their chosen RPGs.

What is the benefit of getting the separated assets?

The completed maps have been designed and assembled to be versatile and large, so that Game Masters can drop their players into many different scenarios and use areas of each map that best fit their story. Each is also intended to be able to be used as a complete adventure in its own right. The separated assets allow map makers and Game Master to tailor the experiences they want to give their players.

Additionally, Roll20 and the recently funded Unity version of Fantasy Grounds support modular map building, allowing GMs to create maps piece-by-piece during an adventure.

Backers that are not familiar with image editing software, have no fear. I will be creating some tutorial videos that will show the step-by-step process to use the free image editing program GIMP2, as well as Adobe Photoshop tutorials (possibly other map making programs as well). Backers will be updated with information on Twitch streams where you can come and hang out while I work on the TECHLANDERS assets.

 So, What's The Plan?

The Goal set for this project is all about time. With the goal met, I will be able to dedicate myself to making all of the assets full-time, getting them to backers and into the marketplace as quickly as possible. 

The Base Pack will provide players and Game Masters with a huge number of assets to run games on Fantasy Ground, Roll20 or any other digital tabletop platform that makes use of tokens. The Base Pack Unpacked is to be a platform for all future packs as it will provide map textures and foundational assets to build scenes on. It will also provide nearly limitless customization of maps and encounters using Gimp/Photoshop/Donjon/Inkarnate/etc.

The additional "Add-on Packs" are designed to GMs to get content that will best serve their setting and system.

As a stand-alone Pack, this would perhaps be called something like the "Badlanders Pack" - However, this will all be contained in the Base Pack Unpacked, Plus a LOT more like it!

 The better this campaign does, the more each backer will get out of it as more packs are unlocked and delivered. Also, this will be fulfilled by the awesome people at DriveThrRPG.

Awww Yiiiihhhhh!...

Are there any examples?

Why am I creating this?

A successful campaign for a project that is so much a reflection of my abilities and tenacity is a massive notch on my belt and will help me to go on to be part of even more awesome projects.

To create something that can be used by so many people to tell their amazing stories and to have so much fun with friends, no matter how far apart they are, is the greatest thing I can put back into the world at the moment. I want, with all my heart, for this project to be made real and your support of this project truly means the world to me. I want to thank every single person that is able to join me in this incredible opportunity. Thank you.

Risks and challenges

The biggest risk will be time management. As postage and handling isn't a factor, and the scope of the deliverables will escalate, the amount of work to be done will add to the overall deadline. As the project has been set into a series of pack releases, each stretch goal should allow for consistent releases of the promised content.
Injury is also a potential issue as this is the effort of a single illustrator, but sheer tenacity will see this project is completed and, hopefully, continued.
