"My name's Kevin. I'm a Dungeon Master. These are my Session Tapes." 

Since November 2018, The Session Tapes actual-play D&D 5E podcast has immersed a global audience in the fantasy world of Ythaeris. Through the medium of tabletop role-playing, our group of hardy (if somewhat morally dubious) adventurers have woven a tale of warfare, betrayal, and sorcery. The first series of the podcast, Welcome to Archaellia, has amassed thousands and thousands of listens in just six months. Amazing when you consider never intended to create a podcast... let alone a podcast with such an appreciable following!

Now, as we begin Children of the Covenant, our second campaign under the banner of The Session Tapes, we want to do it right. We want to make your experience listening to our podcast as enjoyable as our experience of making it! Maps, lore, art, music, audio, even audience participation... we want to bring it all to you. But this takes time and resources.

We've started this Patreon so that we can bring you the experience we think you, as an audience, truly deserve!  
Tiers
Initiate
$1 or more per month

Weekly lore-drops from the world of Ythaeris, in written and/or audio format. Who are the Perathim? Why was the First Covenant signed? What caused the Unification Wars? Find out here! 

Errant
$3 or more per month

Access to weekly “Meanwhiles”... special news updates of what is going on “off-camera” in the Covenant and the wider world when the PCs aren’t around.


Also occasional table-talk clips and bloopers which might not have made it into the final podcast. Not necessarily game-related, but interesting, funny, silly or just downright weird. 

Arbiter-Lieutenant
$5 or more per month

Monthly game content from Kevin the DM! Crunchy rules for the new backgrounds, cultures, languages, magic items, and classes found in the Witchgrave and beyond!


Also, you will be listed as a supporter on any published material created by Kevin the DM and The Session Tapes crew, as well as on The Session Tapes website and periodic podcast shout-outs!  

Arbiter
$10 or more per month

A direct channel to the creators. Give us your input for NPCs, locations, loot or even side-quests! 


In addition, access to special “Top Secret” behind-the-scenes notes that not even the players get to see; like what really caused The Dying? 

Reeve
$25 or more per month

Welcome to the Covenant! 


Have your own personal character permanently added to the canon of Ythaeris lore. Working together with Kevin, you will create a personality who will interact fully with the players and their environment… but what’s more, you will have continued input on that character’s motivations and reactions as the story unfolds.
