Recently, I have been putting a lot of thought into what I want to achieve in 2024. I have been working hard these last few weeks writing for my fantasy world of Aetros and planning a new campaign set in that world that I will be running soon for some friends. I have never finished a campaign as a Games Master before, and I want this new campaign to be different.
But what else do I want from 2024? I have already begun trialling ideas, such as releasing a homebrew PDF on my Ko-Fi, the Skeleton Race, written in response to my changing game systems from 5th Edition D&D to Pathfinder 2nd Edition and then back to 5th Edition D&D.
Aside from the first homebrew release, I want to do more. Extraordinary items, weapons, armour, one-shots, campaign settings I want to do it all! Alongside writing, I want to make art to accompany my written homebrew. I have never been comfortable with art and consider my ability to draw sub-par at best.
So my goal for 2024, as we reach the end of January, is to make more homebrew, and I intend to target one piece a month for the whole year minimum, no matter how small it might be. I will make some of them free on the shop so that my works are out in the world for people to see and (hopefully) use.
Secondary to that goal, I want to release at least two pieces this year with a drawn element I created myself. To me, this is a scary goal but one I am determined to achieve.
I turn 31 years old in 19 days as of the publication of this post, and I want to expand my horizons and do something I am passionate about, but until now, I haven't had the drive to go for it.
Initially, I was charging for the Skeleton race. However, as of this post, I have made it free to download (pay what you want). Eventually, I will charge for some homebrew I release, but after further thought, the first one shouldn't have a cost.
With January over, it's time to move on to February. I plan to make a magical weapon for February's homebrew item, which will be 5th Edition D&D compatible. Keep an eye out on my Ko-fi shop for it to be released.
Have a great 2024, everyone!
