Maximum Pew Pew is creating an actual-play RPG podcast

I've been a Pathfinder Society GM practically full-time for the past five years, and there is this great allure to sharing a story with people. The greatest lesson I've learned is that the narrative stops belonging to you, the GM, as soon as you present it to the players, but the journey tends to be so much richer than imagined, and the destination, planned or otherwise, is still satisfying.

Maximum Pew Pew is an actual-play roleplaying game podcast; a direct recording of the sessions my table and I will have. I'm looking to Patreon for a little additional support. I fully intend Maxiumum Pew Pew to be a "labor of love"... audio equipment has been purchased, materials have been pre-ordered, and the online presence and audio hosting is forthcoming. However, if I am able to offer my volunteer players, who have as much onus as I do to make this project entertaining without any compensation, some extra snacks and drinks during recording sessions, or I'm able to offset website hosting costs... I would be very appreciative of those contributions.

In the event our monthly costs are covered and our bellies are filled to capacity, I've given though to what to do with excess funds. Awesome players and awesome characters deserve awesome art -- we will commission some character art, paying your generosity forward to another maker in the community. If your generosity becomes overflowing, excesses will be donated to local children hospitals and charities supporting gaming as therapy. I have no intention of profiting from this endeavor, only investing.

For those who are listening in to Maximum Pew Pew, I hope you're enjoying your stay in the Drift, and thank you for sharing this journey with us.

Thank you for contributing! I don't want to lock content behind a paywall, but if you're willing to put a little money toward this endeavor, you certainly should receive some incentive.
  • Access to Patreon-only posts (probably candid photos from the gameplay or GM prep sessions)
  • Access to the Contributor areas of the Maximum Pew Pew Discord server
Includes Discord rewards
MaxPew Enabler
$5 or more per month 1 patron
Something as small as $5 significantly offsets the operating costs of this podcast and adds snacks to the table.
  • Ability to vote on potentially universe-altering in-game situations and scenarios
  • A shout-out at the beginning of each game session (once every 3-5 episodes -- because of the nature of the recording and release schedule, your shout-out may be delayed)
  • Access to the Enabler areas of the Maximum Pew Pew Discord server
  • All MaxPew Contributor rewards
Includes Discord rewards
MaxPew Co-Pilot
$15 or more per month 0 patrons
You have chosen, very graciously, to take care of our primary monthly cost, or perhaps provide us with a nice spread of snacks for one of our game sessions. That amount of support demands some attention.
  • A shout-out in the end credits
  • Access to the Co-Pilot areas of the Maximum Pew Pew Discord server
  • All MaxPew Enabler and Contributor rewards
Includes Discord rewards
MaxPew Sponsorship
$75 or more per month 0 of 1 patrons
If there is something about Maximum Pew Pew that demands you place your brand along side it, this is the reward for you. This tier knocks out our monthly costs and funds a modest lunch for my players every session. Beyond the altruism of keeping my players happy, a MaxPew sponsor will also receive other benefits.
  • A pre-roll or end-credit advertisement for your brand, service, product, etc.
  • Ability to vote on potentially universe-altering in-game situations and scenarios
  • Access to the Co-Pilot areas of the Maximum Pew Pew Discord server
  • Access to Patreon-only posts
Includes Discord rewards
Goals
$4 of $10 per month
At $10 per month, we can cover our monthly web-hosting costs. Excess will go towards podcast hosting.
