About Nilaus

Who is Nilaus?
My name is Nilaus and I have created YouTube videos for a couple of years now. It started as a hobby, but has gradually expanded into more. Recently I lost my "real" job as a corporate manager in a global IT organisation; but this has given me the opportunity to make my hobby of YouTube and streaming into a real job.

Full time content creator
The transition from "hobby" to "career" could honestly not be done without the generous support of the community here on Patreon. Looking at my page and knowing with a high degree of certainty that there is a fixed income is what has enabled me to take the leap into becoming a full time Youtuber. 

What Patreon does for me
The support on Patreon means the world to me and to this day I am awestruck that I have been given the amazing opportunity to pursue what has become my dream as of late.
Where I am at currently is great and amazing, but it doesn't cover the bills. I have kids, mortgage and loans to pay, so I need to treat this as a business to avoid having to go back to a real job. Your help and support makes all the difference in making the dream come true

The traditional ad supported platforms are great, but there is a disconnect between the producer and the consumer, where the medium of transaction is watching obnoxious ads to get to the content. Patreon offers a more direct connection, which also allows me to share my appreciation more targeted than "thank you for watching ads before my content" :)

What you get out of it
* The joy of supporting a content creator you like and support the continuation journey of my content
* I incorporate supporters into most games I play. You can become a named character that I will yell at and call incompetent in games like Darkest Dungeon or XCOM (and sometimes praise for saving the day)
* Special milestones in campaigns e.g. build X for each supporter or each supporter having a special building
* Special roles in Discord with access to restricted chat (where i am most active) and access to vote on the next games I should play
* Priority or exclusive access to community events

Thanks
Thank you for believing in me enough to spend your hard earned money on supporting some random dude on the internet playing computer ;)
Goals
100% complete
Merchandise shop!
At first it started as a joke, but the requests kept coming and I am warming to the idea.
Currently I have no idea what or how, so I am very open to (good/crazy) suggestions in comments and/or in Discord :)
It can be the usual things such as Shirts, Hoodies, Coffee mugs, but also more exotic things... 
Personally, I would love to do something with additive manufacturing (though shipping costs may become an issue)

Let me know what you think of this; both specifically on which items to offer and generally about this as a Patreon goal.
