"Greetings I am Archer, emissary of the Gorgonites"
If only that were true
My name is Rick Oldham (My old DA-ID was Lloyd-Kilgorin, over a decade it seems...) Back in the day many knew me as a great story builder and decent writer; But behold, I return a game designer and founder/creator of Roll Playing Games (a board game company which will stomp the floor with the best of them; and yes they always include dice and roles somewhere : )
Like many of you I am a creator by nature, but more importantly, I want my creations to change the world for the better. For "What man is a man who does not make the world a better place." or "'No one is a man who would not give the world back better." Unfortunately, life is never easy on the good people, nor rarely hard on the bad ones... Luckily my P.C.S helps me block out all the nonsense, I feel sorry for you if you don't have that disease/ability/curse.
Anyhow, that's me. Any questions just ask!
As I said I founded the company Roll Playing Games. Which will be a board game based franchise who'll always use dice in the games, and will always be role playing game oriented!!! This company may have been founded by me, but it is also backed by many people. My Brother & Partner for sure deserves credit! He has done so much for us, and I really don't think we would have gotten this far without him (I'll force him to get a DA account so you all can add him and tease him : ) . tjxp.deviantart.com/ Get him, hahaha!
Hmmm. Game examples... Well. I have sooooooo many great games designed, yet so little funds. The first game starts them all off!!!
-Fantasy Chess (of course). Quite easy actually, can't believe no one else has thought of it... Mix a Chess board, FF Tactics movement, and Magic the Gathering card style characters or pieces.
-Monopoly turned western. Where all the locations are actual historical places. Let alone we incorporate the middle of the board for customization (Known as the Oregon Trail).
-A card game
I've yet to come up with a name for, sad I know... A Western origin, Card based. You can shoot here and there, points matter, but my dice say whether I dodge/you miss or not! Also, they'll be just regular playing cards : )
-And then my main (out of many many many....) which I cannot remember or find my notes on, but I will! Was an RPG board game utilizing multiple chars. And yes, I know, sounds like Fantasy Chess... But it's far beyond, which is why I held off for the right funding!
-Hmm, and then all the others... All great, will make money, Families happy (er docile lol).
That is my mind, Thank you for visiting my f'ed up page/life lol ; p
Okay, so as you all know from my bios I am building a board game company from the ground up. Which I’ve put too many of my resources into already and am broke now… Sad I know. So I’m asking you all for donations to my cause (which is now for an artist to commission). Which will of course be rewarded!
Anything up to 1000 DA points gets an honorable mention on the game Rule book, website, etc.
Anything up to 2000 gets the very first downloadable version of the game.
Anything up to 3000 gets the actual game when it is complete (you’ll be the first!)
Thank you for your time!
