Kia ora, guys. Bird here!

Welcome to my Patreon page! I'm Birdtross and for the last couple of years I’ve been making YouTube videos as a fun hobby. My channel is still relatively small, but a dedicated group of fans has built up nonetheless that supports my videos and me (thank you!). I’m best known for making ‘pure let’s plays’ of certain mods for Minecraft, such as Thaumcraft, and more recently, The Twilight Forest and Intangible. I don’t claim to be an amazing player of any game. In fact, I’ve been told by multiple people that they appreciate how average I am as a gamer, as it represents how most people will actually experience it for themselves.

Since I started a fan server, several viewers have come forward saying that they’d gladly help keep the server running on a financial level. Up to now, any donation scheme has been messy and accessible only through back doors. I’d like to change this to make it more transparent and easy for people to do. This is where Patreon comes in.

Patreon is a platform that many of the people reading this will have heard of already, so I’ll spare you the definition. With your backing and support, we’ll be able to keep my fan server online and paid for. The cost for the actual server hosting is approximately $30 US. I’m not expecting many donations, and we probably wont even exceed this $30 threshold. Despite this, here’s the plan me and the other server admins have laid out:

  • If the donations through Patreon do not exceed the monthly cost for the server hosting, the difference will be made up in-house.
  • If the donations through Patreon do exceed the monthly cost for the server hosting, the excess will be either donated to Azanor (the creator of Thaumcraft)’s Patreon, or kept in reserve for future hosting charges.

What's this about a fan server?

If this is your first time hearing about my fan server, allow me to introduce you to the basic premise. My fan server is just that, a Minecraft survival server for fans of my YouTube videos. It only has one major mod, Thaumcraft 5, and several small supporting mods such as a gravestone mod. We want to create a ‘lore’ for Thaumcraft that involves Vis Thaumaturges, Crimson Cultists and Void Thaumaturges in a wizarding war that will swing back in forth as sides lose and gain power. This will be done primarily through admin-run server events that will work very much like a group-quest scenario. Players will need to band together to solve mysteries, cast spells, and of course, defeat bosses. The plot, etc. is all very much still in it’s infancy as I write this.

In addition to these admin-run events, players are also invited to host their own events. Several PVP death matches with a Thaumcraft twist have already taken place, with valuable prizes awarded to the victors. You should also feel free to create minigames or other fun activites on this server! I’m also doing a ‘fan spotlight’ video once a month, to showcase a build that has been constructed on the server. Be on the lookout for these videos if you enjoy looking at people’s bases, etc!

I’d just like to make a couple of things clear about the server before going any further. Firstly, access to the server will be free and unhindered by a Patreon pay wall. Secondly, becoming a Patron of mine and donating to help cover server costs will not give you any in-game benefits whatsoever (aside from a coloured name). My goal is for everybody who plays on my fan server to be on a level ground when it comes to gameplay, regardless of how much you do or don't donate.

Please be aware that we don’t have any plans to add another major mod at this stage. We’d like to add some more Thaumcraft addons slowly over time, but for now we have just one addon, and several small supporting mods. We also don’t have a teleportation system for people either. There’s no /home or /spawn on this server, as I feel that such commands are overpowered, and it encourages the use of a Nether Hub to quickly move around instead.

Right now this Patreon page is meant to support my fan server. In future, this will most likely change as I have no intention of stopping making YouTube videos. If you'd just like to support me and my YouTube videos, you're welcome to do so, but currently wont get any super-awesome loot out of the deal.

Thanks for reading, and kia kaha!
