Hi, I'm Owen K.C. Stephens, and I'm a game designer. I work mostly in Roleplaying Games, especially the Pathfinder RPG. My day job is game developer at Paizo Publishing, but I'm also the Freeport and Pathfinder Developer for Green Ronin, the Lead Project Manager for Rite Publishing, and the founder and publisher of Rogue Genius Games.
What free time I have left is split between freelance writing projects and releasing free material on my blog, owenkcstephens.com. Obviously, since I can make money with freelance writing, it's hard for me to justify spending much time releasing things for free on my blog. A number of friends and fans have said they'd happily spend a little money each month if it resulted in a regular supply of material. So, here's your chance!
Become a patron, and support me making more game material, short stories, microsettings, and geek-themed material.

Tiers
Awesome Patron!
$3 or more per month 36 patrons
This is the basic support level, allowing me to try to maintain regular game or geek life posts to owenkcstephens.com. If any free game material gets posted to other sites, an update will allow all my patrons to easily find it.
Mega-Patron
$10 or more per month 4 patrons
Still awesome, but now much bigger! At some point each month, mega-patrons get a (very simple, unremarkable) pdf compiling all the free material I released the previous month. 

(This used to be the $20 level, but I've brought it down in keeping with the average length of the pdfs.)

Sponsor!
At this level, once a month I'll end one of my longer-ish blog posts with a specific thanks to you as a sponsor, along with a link to your own blog, store, or other online presence.
These may be fairly tongue in cheek, with "Blog-O's Brought To you By!" type messages. I actually think this is the best way to get people to read who sponsored a post, and maybe be interested enough to click the link to your thing.
Not that this isn't a pay-to-post-content situation. The blog post will still be unrelated to your link, I'll just publicly thank you for being a sponsor of my blog, which as a patron at this reward level, you are!
I may increase the number of these available later, after I see how they impact the flow of my blog writing.

 Once a month, with the timing assigned by me but working with you if you have specific scheduling issues, you get an hour of my time. We can chat via Skype or Hangouts. I can consult on something. If you are local we can play cards at the AFK Tavern. You can ask me to write one hour of something specific. If you go to a Con I am at, you may get to be included in some dinner or event I go to. We'll work it out. 
Goals
$220 of $714 per month
(This is my old $750 goal, adjusted to account for Patreon changing how they charge my patrons.)
At this level, I can budget a guaranteed amount of time into my freelance schedule, allowing me to post at least one 750-word or longer piece of setting or fiction material every Monday, and 2 microrules (Microfeats, Spell Tweets, or similar very-short RPG rule ideas) every Tuesday-Friday.
