Hi. I'm Patrick, or depending on the cybersphere you arrived from, Troubadour. I'm a queer writer and game designer with just over a decade's experience playing, running, and hacking tabletop roleplaying games (though typically not all at the same time). This Patreon is where I post in-progress game projects, updates pertaining thereto, and design thoughts in written and audio form, collectively under the label Red Troubadour Inn. Presently, those games are:

  • Project Dungeonhearts, a Forged in the Dark game about telling fantasy dramas, and
  • Drop In 3, a sci-fi tactics game about giant fighting robots and the humans who work on/in them.
I'm professionally best known for Japanese video game localization work, contributing large swathes of final story script to Utawarerumono: Mask of Deception, its sequel Mask of Truth, and most recently Shining Resonance Refrain (all through Atlus/SEGA). While I enjoy loc work deeply, this Patreon represents a shift in new and strange directions for my career.

I do not know the exact shape this journey will take, but I invite you to take it with me. Your patronage will allow me to professionally prioritize, develop, test, and ship tabletop RPGs of my own design, and I will meet your trust with quality work, early-access peeks, playtest materials, and more. Help me build this inn, so we can all play games in it together.

Goals
$25 of $150 per month
At $150 per month, I will begin publishing audio essays on game design as a free-to-listen podcast series. (As in, you won't have to be a Patron to listen to these.)
