For some, tabletop gaming is a idle curiosity to satisfy from time to time. For others, it's an obsession that has cost us months of accumulated time, mounds of money, and multiple marriages. Thankfully, most of us fall somewhere in that tenable space between where our time and bank accounts feel the burden of our hobby, but our spouses (if we have them) have either joined us or resigned themselves to their lot in life. Persuasion check: success!

I'm mostly in that last category. My name is Chris, but I'm known in some circles as stinklikeonion, and my lovely wife enjoys the hobby and tolerates how much more I enjoy it than her. As a DM, time investment can be intensive, and I don't like to make my family suffer for it. So I try to save time where I can using the wealth of tools out there that make a DM's life easier.

However, as a fan of high magic settings, I found it difficult to reconcile 5th edition's... punt on magic item economy. And while I found some resources to help, they were limited, tedious, or clunky. So, as a web developer, I decided to take matters into my own hands and build a tool to share with the community.

And so, 5eMagic.Shop was born.

It took some time, and it spawned (especially given the responses from the community) a wealth of new ideas, both to expand its capability and to add new resources for DMs. Which is nice. Except, time is limited. And all that extra time investment increases the Persuasion DC with my wife who insists on paying bills and seeing the sun sometimes.

So how can I justify regularly investing even more time into a website for a bunch of strangers? Well, what if you weren't strangers? What if you were supporters, feeding my addic-- err, helping us pay for hosting costs and my time?

I have been overwhelmed and immensely affirmed by the feedback I've gotten since launching 5eMagic.Shop. Tabletop gamers can be some of the most varied, supportive, and engaging groups. It's a hobby that's literally made from welcoming newcomers. Accordingly, launching this site has enriched my soul. Unfortunately, a rich soul can still be an empty wallet. Affirmation, my wife insists, doesn't pay bills.

I want to pour more and more into this community and into this website. I have plans for expanding its capabilities and tools, and I'm excited for dreams of providing regular unique content that can make a DM's life much easier. But I can only invest so much time.

Here's where you come in. I'd like to welcome you behind the 5eMagic.Shop counter, drape an apron over your shoulders, stick a nametag on your chest, and make you a Keeper, a franchise partner with all the perks and privileges that come with the apron. Yeah, sorry the nametag says "Mr. Blondiebum". We'll get you your own.

With your contributions, we can grow this website into a more robust set of tools. And if the support continues to grow, we've got daydreams of opening up a second tier that will empower a lot of new things to happen, so stay tuned.
