Hello and Welcome To The Table!

Thank you for taking the time and reading this to find out if you would like to become a Patron to How To Be A Great Game Master and a Great Roleplayer.

Who are you and why are you welcoming me to the table? Are you strange?

I’m Guy Sclanders and have been Role playing since 1989. That’s before Pokemon Go, YouTube and even the Internet! I started the Great Game Master channel about two years ago but got out two videos… then two more… then nothing. Why? Because I felt it wasn’t what I wanted it to be – a resource for players and Game Masters to be able to use to improve their games. So together with my friend Derrick aka Web Goblin we decided to get together and revive the channel and create a space for the role players to learn and grow from my experiences and one another! Because we all love table top role playing. That was in February of 2016, and I am proud to say we have grown the channels (yes we have two) from a handful of videos to over 200 videos so far and counting, and have released 2 a week! We even added a third video of us role playing with our friends making it 3 a week. 

We create How To Be A Great Game Master videos and how to be a Great Role Player videos, basically a lot of Tabletop RPG related content for Game Masters.

And yes we are Strange, some more than others :P

Okay, so you do AWESOME Tabletop Roleplaying How To's for Game Masters and Role players and much more but what is Patreon?

Patreon is essentially a place where you can support a creator financially for the awesome content they make for you.

We would really appreciate your support and even if that isn't through becoming a Patron but by liking, sharing and subscribing to our Youtube Channels, that's awesome too. The point of Patreon is that we will still be making all the content for free and if you want to, you can support us and get rewards for that support. Remember you don't have to do this but please consider supporting our work with a dollar, or more if you want :)

So why did you come onto Patreon if you will still make the content anyway?

Well because as much as we love doing this and creating all these videos, it does take a lot of time and effort. Most people don't realize that we spend at least three nights a week working on the channel and one day on the weekend, which yes, we do enjoy and love, and are passionate about and will continue to do so into the far future but it is time consuming, and we’ve kinda spent all our cash on making it as good as it can be. We want to help people become better Game Masters and Role Players so that more people get involved and have better experiences and we want to eventually take over the world... Mwha ha ha ... cough cough. But seriously we love our channels and love RPG's and being on Patreon would give us the space to create more content, replace our current equipment, make better content and possibly give our GM Guy a little bit of a life as he does almost all the work. *The web goblin looks up and feesl as though hes have been left out, then returns to working in the dungeon*

What would I get if I did become Patreon?
Well we thought long and hard about that, because we’re kinda giving everything away free anyway already, and will continue to do so regardless of what happens here. So we got together with some of the guys we’ve met on this incredible journey thus far, and have – we think – put together some pretty cool options as a way of saying thank you to those who do decide to become part of our Table. Check them out on the right. 

What if I can't, don't want to, or stop giving you money?
You are totally welcome to stop, start or never give us money. It's up to you :) We will never judge or be upset, as we know real life is important and so would never want to put you in a place where you are choosing between us and two minute noodles. Pick the noodles, trust us we have all been there *Web Goblin coughs pointedly* Please remember you can stop being a Patron at any time; you aren't locked into anything. Equally so you can start giving us money at any point :) We are flexible like that.

Thanks for your support, in whatever way you give it, comments, shares, subscribes and possibly Patronage.
Welcome to the table!
Sincerely
Guy aka Great Game Master
Derrick aka Web Goblin
