Character Cache is Coming!

CharCache_Logo_9-12-15September 15, 2015 – Encoded Designs is teaming up with artist Matt Morrow to create the Character Cache, the blending of character art and game material for GMs and players.

As a GM you will be able to use the Character Cache as a collection of NPCs. The content includes different ways the character can be used in your campaign. If you are a player, the content supplies an illustration of the character, and provides questions to develop backgrounds, personality traits, aspects, and backstory for your character.

Backers will receive a new Character each month. Before launching the Character Cache, we wanted to show you what we are putting together, so we are giving away one free character: Teela Averness.

The Patreon campaign is designed to create a better product as it grows. The artwork starts with line art, and then moves to color line art, and finally fully painted pieces. Along the way, the Encoded Designs team will include stat blocks to the character, making them useful as NPCs in different games.

The Character Cache is being released using the Creative Commons Attribution-NonCommercial-ShareAlike 4.0 International (CC BY-NC-SA 4.0) license. We want you to be able to use the characters and art in your campaigns, post them to your campaign wikis, and use them in your home and convention games.

The Patreon campaign is coming soon. Follow Encoded Designs on Facebook, G+, or Twitter for more information.
