If you haven’t played Ben Robbins’ new Kingdom RPG, you’re doing yourself a bit of a disservice. Grab 3-5 of your friends and play it today!
Anyway, I had an idea for a Kingdom seed. Hopefully it inspires some play and fun!
FusionWare will change the way people interact with their world!
A new tech startup amongst the endless waves of tech startups, FusionWare’s visionary founder and the board of directors are poised to take the company to new heights. At least, that’s what they want the investors to know. The reality of the situation is that FusionWare is gushing money out its unmentionable orifices. Top developers and the perks needed to keep them aren’t cheap, and top talent often has special needs when it comes to ego stroking.
Will we get our product to market? Will our stock options pay off? Will all of our investors abandon ship leaving us to shrivel and die?
Fusionware is a software company in [Silicon Valley, rubbing elbows with tech giants. | New York, amidst the hustle and bustle of the big city | Los Angeles, keeping up with the hippest in The Industry]
It’s a great idea for a product, but [it’s hard to monetize | hard to sell to investors].
Our user base is [wide and varied | small and vocal].
Wait… what does our product do anyway?
We need money to offset our burn rate. Or we need to survive long enough to get bought.
Other tech companies are trying to poach our best and brightest.
Someone could beat us to market with a competing product.
