Long ago (circa 2013ish) I got bored at work, and created a Miniature Wargame.
No, really. I completed it in about 7 hours over the course of the day, in between doing my data entry. Since 2015 its been up on DriveThruRPG for a pay what you want price. Surprisingly people actually download it, and some even pay me for it. Right now I have made roughly $3 dollars in the past year and a half! Oh yea, rolling in the dough. No one ever says anything about it though. Its prolly my shit cover art. Yea thats it.
But interestingly enough, my brain constantly bugs me to take that base line, that miniature wargame concept, and turn it into something more. I have in my head a whole universe and world and ideas about it. Guilds and people and characters and history. All the fluff and such.
I say my brain is a troll however, because while I have all these ideas, any time I try to actually DO something with them, my brain goes “Nahhh bruh I aint in the mood…lets go do this instead!” and I never get anything done.
Its honestly maddening.
Maybe I should just sit down and start trying to create something out of it. Just start writing down ideas and things and go from there. Create maybe a backstory to the world and maybe even go so far as to create an entire Tabletop RPG system. Would that be easy? Not remotely. But doable? Yea.
Maybe it would be.
Sure would be easier then learning how to program and do art for a full on video game I can tell you that.
