Summary:
  • Creating a D&D campaign extension/adventure
  • Patrons can customize the campaign (see "rewards" below)
  • Patrons will be charged only ONCE
  • Quick (5 minute) designing options for many rewards (for those with limited time)
  • Anticipated single-payment date: January 1st 2016

Current Patreon-Supported Project:
D&D 5th Edition Campaign

My current long-term project that patrons can directly affect is the creation of a custom D&D 5th Adventure (formerly called a Campaign Extension or Module). It will be made available for anyone that wants to incorporate it into their personal games, but upon completion it will also be broadcast on Twitch.tv/SourKoolAidShow where anyone can participate in their weekly D&D sessions [Wednesday 6pm Pacific].

For Dungeon Masters that want to use it:

The premise of the campaign is tried and true, a Mountain holding all sorts of mystery and treasure. But that by itself is kind of bland, so my product will come with a massive variety of landscapes and cultures (and an Underdark), each with different characteristics and quirks. Furthermore, there will be numerous chains of adventures that can be tuned for adventurers at the Lv1, Lv5 or Lv10 benchmarks (many of which you can directly shape through this Patreon page!). All of these can and will tie into the main narrative surrounding the Mountain. 

But still, numerous Mountain-based campaigns are already out there. While I certainly can craft you a great series of stories, I understand that a lot of people want to create their own world rather than play a campaign on rails, but they just need a little help on the art work. Because of this, almost everything in my campaign will be customizable. As long as you have a basic understanding of Photoshop, you’ll be able to edit the campaign elements to suit your needs. And I don’t mean just changing names; I mean complete character, city, faction, and enemy overhauls from the physical description all the way down to the saving throws. 

For Patrons that want to support its development:

You can see below the different tiers of "rewards" that can affect this project and many of the templates are previewed there as well. This is a multi-month project since there will be so much. No one is charged until the campaign is complete, but we can start working on your customization as soon as Patreon records your pledge! I also understand that some patrons want to help out and leave their mark on the campaign, but don't have lots of time to devote to customizing the reward they are entitled to. Therefore, many of the rewards have "quick customization" options where you only need to provide me with the broad outline of what you'd like and I'll design the rest. Of course you can certainly go in-depth and customize every aspect to your liking. 

The Fine Print: Patrons can begin designing their content as soon as they make their pledge. However, if they later retract their pledge prior to the charge date of January 1st, their content will be removed from the campaign. While the campaign will ship with all of the patron contributions included, when it is broadcasted on the SourKoolAid Show or other online show, the DM will have full license to adapt the campaign as they see fit for their audience. They may choose to not use some patron contributions and I cannot force them to do so.

DR. FRANKENSTEIN'S APPRENTICES: Sometimes you just want to create a monster. These patrons are given the responsibility for creating a custom monster that will appear somewhere within the campaign setting. It can be any range of challenge rating. The benefit of this is that you'll be making something that players with a Monster Manual will not be able to just look up and "metagame" themselves.

The GODMAKERS: These patrons are given the opportunity to design a deity for one of the main tribes of antagonists. Their choices will help shape the action and characteristics of the tribes. These gods will help the Dungeon Master add flavor to the campaign, influence the course of many quests and use their abilities to create complications for the players.You will develop a personality for your god, its appearance, the passive effects (beneficial & negative) it confers upon its followers and the divine interventions it can use to affect the game world. Your god will be formatted on a custom template (as seen below) which will name you as the creator. [Includes a copy of the campaign]

The QUEST DOCTORS: These patrons are given the opportunity to develop a series of encounters or a "quest chain" that helps low level characters gain experience or special equipment so that they can take on the main campaign. These will have a villain and schemes and will probably contain an entire play session worth of content. This is for Patrons that want to craft their own mini-campaign inside the main one! Your name will appear in the credits of the productions. [Includes a copy of the campaign]

ADDED BONUS: This reward also contains the benefits of the "Character Creator" and "Dr. Frankenstein's Apprentices" rewards for creating the key NPCs in the quest chain and a custom monster type if the Patron so chooses.

The FACTION FABRICATORS: These patrons are given the responsibility for creating one of the campaign's main factions. There are 10 factions active in this campaign. Most notably, there are six factions supporting the campaign boss and five of them have NPC "captains" who will poses the Artifact weapons listed in the $100 Patron rewards.The Faction Fabricators will decide one of the factions' racial makeup, NPC leader, history, attitudes...the whole package.

ADDED BONUS: This reward also contains the benefits of the "Character Creator" and "Dr. Frankenstein's Apprentices" rewards for creating the NPC leader and a custom monster type if the Patron so chooses. However, NPC and faction creation is on a first-come, first-create basis. If "Artificers" Patrons has already designed all of the faction leader NPCs, then Faction Fabricators will have to take this into account in their design of the overall faction.

Note: for those that have limited time, you can use my "quick creation" system to put together a faction in under 5 minutes.Your faction will be formatted on a custom template similar to the monster page above and it will name you as the creator. [Includes a copy of the campaign]

There Can Only Be One: This top patron is given the great responsibility for helping to create the final boss / main antagonist of the campaign.

Goals
$104 of $1,000 per D&D 5th Edition Campaign
If we reach this goal, I will dramatically expand my Daz3D fantasy library in order to create player handouts and reference pictures for the campaign. I have a fair amount of items, but certainly could use more weapon models and male outfits!
