So you are a World creator with awsome ideas that would be of great interest to Gamemasters out there, eh? Mythos Machine makes
Publishing your Worlds for Sale to other GMs on the Mythos Machine incredibly easy!
Gamemasters on the Premium Subscription Tier can author Worlds and Publish them for sale to other GMs on the
Mythos Machine Worlds Marketplace . These are called Packaged Worlds. When you Publish them to the Worlds
Marketplace you set a price for them based on what you feel they are worth (min. $3 to cover our costs and Stripe transaction fees).
You will get 76% of the profit of each sale, and the Elthos platform will get 24%.
What kind of World can you create?
That's entirely up to you. You can create any kind of World you can imagine, and populate it with whatever Elements, Places, Campaigns and Adventures that make it come
alive for GMs and Players. The Elthos RPG rules are genre-neutral and designed to allow you to extend it any direction you want to go. You can create any
scope for your World, from the very tiny to star spanning galactic adventures if you wish. You can create any Places, Races, Classes, Cultures, Weapons, Armors,
Equipment, Skills, and Mystic Powers your World requires. Any kind of World can be crafted in the Mythos Machine, and once you've created your
Elements, their properties are all then used by the Mythos Machine's number crunching magic to Auto-Generate everything you need to build out your
World's Campaigns and Characters quickly and easily.
But what do your customers get?
When a GM purchases any of your Worlds on the Mythos Machine they get an exact copy of the World, which is comprised of its Setting, including the
Places, Campaigns and Adventures you've created, as well as Characters and Elements
(which include whatever Weapons, Armors, Equipment, Races, Classes, etc., you have created for your World). They can use your World inside the
Mythos Machine to run their games, adding to or modifying anything there to suit their particular needs. They can invite their Players to join the World
via the Mythos Machine and roll characters in it, run adventures, and add to the history of their Campaigns in the World you created for them. In other
words, they own their copy, and can play with it however they want. What you are giving them is a World to play in. What they do with it
from there is up to them.
But what do your customers NOT get?
What they can not do is repackage your World and sell it in any way as if it were their own, ever. You retain all copyright ownership of your own Worlds.
But you must also guarantee that all of the work in your World is in fact either owned by you, or you have express permission to use it. It is strongly
preferred for you to use your own original material, of course.
How do I become an Elthos World Publisher?
To set yourself up as a Publisher on the Platform you must be 18 or older, and an American Citizen (due to legal limitations at this time).
If so, you can subscribe
to the Mythos Machine as a Premium Gamemaster, and this will give you access to the Create Packaged Worlds option when you
create new Worlds. To Publish your Worlds in the Marketplace you will need to have a valid Checking Account (where you will recieve your payments) and
provide our platform service at Stripe that information. In fact, Elthos never sees that information at all, and it never passes
through our server. Stripe is a well respected payment platform that you can review independently. Our integration with Stripe is as secure
as it can be, and so you can feel safe with Stripe as your back end sales office. They will safely and securely handle all transactions between
you and your customers, and between you and our Elthos Platform. No fuss, no muss. And they also provide you with tools to interact with
your customers should you ever wish to do so.
Once you have set yourself up with your Stripe Connect Platform Account you can then start selling your Worlds! It's easy and the sign up process
takes about 10 minutes. More detailed instructions are on our World Publisher sign up page.
We encourage World Authors to give it a go. It's amazing fun to create your own Worlds, and there are tons of GMs who are always in the market for
fascinating well constructed Worlds to buy. So give it a try and let your imagination soar! Your future customers will thank you for it!
If you are an RPG Author who wants to create amazing Worlds and put them up for sale on Mythos Machine, the Elthos System was built for you!
