We can hardly believe it, but Realm Works has been out for over 24 hours! Now that it’s available, we’ve had many people asking us about future features and their connection to the Realm Works cloud service. One of our top priorities is Realm Works Player Edition.

This Windows-based, player-focused version of Realm Works will allow players to access and view content revealed by the GM on their own computers. Players will also be able to leverage all the same powerful features as the GM version, such as full-text searching and user notes. An important component and the driving force behind this feature is our cloud service, which will allow GMs to easily share revealed information with their players.

As we stated in our release pricing announcement, we believe that connecting with your players through the cloud is a core part of Realm Works, which is why we chose to initially include 6 months of free cloud service for all new users. To that end, the 6-month cloud service “clock” won’t begin ticking until GMs can connect with their players through the cloud using Realm Works Player Edition.

This change applies to all our users (both for Kickstarter backers with 6 with cloud service, and those who purchased the product today and in the coming weeks). We anticipate that Realm Works Player Edition will be available for sale in May, so if it (hypothetically) launches on May 5th, your 6 months of cloud service will begin counting down that day, ending on November 4th.

Once the Player Edition is released, users can take advantage of the benefits of the Realm Works cloud as envisioned by our development team, and the cloud service clock will begin ticking. We’ve had a great response to Realm Works so far, and we think both players and GMs will recognize the Player Edition’s value as an integral tool for keeping players engaged with the story.

If you have any additional questions about the Player Edition or cloud service, please ask them here!

* Please note, if you have the GM Edition, you can also use that as a player.

Is the player edition the only way players can access cloud-based content? Will there be a (obviously less robust) web-portal where players can access content?

Will my players need to buy a player edition to utilize the player web access?

No. The web access, when completed will be free. This has been mentioned somewhere. It will be less featured than the player account software, though.

Is there any way to defer the start of the start of access to the cloud service?

I know that there are several people wary of starting up RealmWorks since they won't be GMing in the short term, so don't want the count down to start for a while.

Farling, the countdown is going to start the day the player version is out. Regardless if you access the cloud or not. That is the impression I am getting. You can't defer it by not logging in to it.. as I am thinking it is account based and not software based.

This makes a big difference. Thanks.

Have there been any announcements (or even mere hints) as to how much the player version of Realm Works is going to cost?
