I just had a crazy idea.
Why don't I release Midrea as a free and open game world? I can put it together, sans most art, one piece at a time and release it to the community as a series of PDF's
This has a number of advantages
#1 Conventional wisdom says worlds do not sell all that well but its possible expansions just might.
#2 I can give back to the community
#3 Its great for marketing and getting my name out.
#4 The niche is really empty
#5 If there really is demand I can make a print book or a snazzy art rich someday.
#6 I ca make it for several games as most of those foundations have been laid already and this might enable me to reach other markets.
Other than the work and loss of control, it doesn't seem like there are a hige number of downsides
What say you folks to the idea?
