The Legends of Mernac was created by Rick Merriman as an OSC project for high-fantasy enthusiasts. LoM is structured around a mythical world named Mernac, which is built by its user base. Future phases under development include animations, soundtracks, RPG gaming, movies and more. Full Access is FREE to the public.
OSC or Open Source Creativity is designed to create a new form of art and entertainment. It borrows some concepts from some of the large programming communities where numerous programmers all work together toward a common goal, and the “code” they write is completely viewable to anyone. OSC involves creative people from many disciplines; writers, artists, programmers, musicians, web developers, marketers, just to name just a few. The other difference is that OSC based projects are designed not only to foster and promote these creative people’s talent, but it is also meant to provide them with a way to generate recognition AND financial compensation for their efforts. The final unique facet of OCS comes with its philosophy. The primary drive of OSC is that the bulk of any profits made from an OCS project should be used to further promote and encourage the thousands (millions) of talented people in the world to explore and develop their creativity. LoM and all future OSC projects strive to create an open source, freely available, downloadable computer application which will allow contributing users to create full length television shows or movies that are of a commercial and professional quality.
