Happy New Year! The year of two natural 20’s, could there be a better time to start a Role Playing Game related business?
Today marks my first post and the beginnings of something pretty awesome!
ModularRealmsTM is a small business selling modular terrain. Our products are all designed and made by me, Annabelle. I got into Dungeons and Dragons about two years ago now, and it was love at first dice. After about six months I started to DM games and make maps and terrain out of pizza boxes and polystyrene packaging. The more I got into it, the further I wanted to push my terrain designs.
I wanted pieces that could flatpack, so I could easily put them in my bag when going to friends houses, or pack them away at the end of the day. They needed to be able to set up quickly, so I didn't have to waste time at the start of each session. I wanted each piece to stick to each other so I could set up a game anywhere (we have even had successful games on picnic rugs and at the beach!) and for the ability to build taller and taller towers for my wizards to hide in. The other thing I wanted in my terrain, was the ability to easily remove walls without compromising the integral structure of a tower. Now, if the party is split with one sneaking up the tower on their own for example, I can remove a wall just for them to see the lay out, whilst players on the other side of the table are still in the dark. When it came to choosing the material for my pieces to be made of, I went for a bio-mass derived, recyclable plastic. I have made this project everything that I as a DM want and love!
Each new design that will come out in the future will be inspired by my players currently adventuring in my homebrew kingdoms and principalities called the Modular Realms. They are my primary beta testers and what choices they make in the game could well decide what new terrain type I start developing next. Thanks guys, you know who you are ;)
I like to think that if I was a D&D character, I would be a gnome artificer. I am bursting with ideas and plans for future products. Like many artificers, I suspect that some of my inventions in the future will be truly inspired! And some will be truly ... interesting ... ;)
I hope that you will be joining us on this wild journey!
