I am well aware of this but I still want to write a weird fantasy 5e heartbreaker. Like, just make something cool for myself that I can share with others who are interested. I already know I am never getting financially compensated for the time I put into this stuff. In fact, I find the lack of financial motivation liberating as I don't need to concern myself with anyone's preferences but my own.For "Heartbreaker" to apply, IMO, it has to include
1) obvious passion and unbridled enthusiasm on part of the amateur author for a game that has no hope of ever being financially successful
2) a lack of awareness of the hobby overall - classically, those who have never played any game besides D&D, but this could be any game where the author thinks they are doing something unique and revolutionary simply because they have no wider awareness of the hobby and design trends.
