About Riverhouse Games

Welcome to the new look of Riverhouse Games in 2020! New Year, new Patreon page!

What is Riverhouse Games?

Hi folks, I’m Taylor and I run Riverhouse Games, which is an umbrella brand for all sorts of great queer focused RPG content. I’ve been making podcasts and games since 2015 and I’m proud of how I’ve grown as a designer, podcaster, and as a queer person through my involvement with this work.

What kind of content does Riverhouse Games make?

Well, I make Game Closet, an informal chat show about queer & LGBT+ folks in tabletop RPGs! We’ve had all sorts of guests, from designers to streamers to podcasters, and even a good old fashioned archivist!

I also write a whole bunch of awesome small roleplaying games like With Fire Thy Affections Hold A Wing, a How-To-Train-Your-Dragon like game of impending apocalypse, or The Treasure At The End Of This Dungeon Is An Escape From This Dungeon And We Will Never Escape From This Dungeon, a kaleidoscopic dungeon crawling game.

I work on large game projects as well, like Creatures of Blood and Flesh for the Cypher System, or the upcoming Descent into Midnight, a Powered by the Apocalypse game about strange oceans and protecting your community, and This Is A Game About Fishing, a queer ecopunk game about family & anticapitalism.

Finally, I curate a list of amazing resources on queer roleplaying games, seeking out and pulling together all sorts of articles, videos, communities and games from across the internet and link to them all in one central place.

But that’s just the short version. If you help support me on Patreon (and follow me on Twitter) you’ll find out all the great stuff I’m involved in and more!

Why am I on Patreon?

Making all of this content carries a cost, whether that’s hosting fees for the podcasts, domain cost for the website, or production costs for games like hiring layout artists and printing physical copies. Patreon helps with this cost as well as provides funds for me to travel and grow in the tabletop community.

Additionally, while I do love this labor, it is still labor, and I’d love to be able to make some additional money for myself from my work that I can put towards bills, rent, groceries, and even luxury items. It’ll be a long way to go before this money goes anywhere but back into my work but we can all dream, right?

Finally, Patreon is changing the way game communities work and I believe that it is at this level that the platform has a value as a place for community. Riverhouse Patrons get immediate and early access to games, podcasts, and more, allowing instantaneous connection to all the cool stuff we make here. You are what makes this worthwhile and the easier I can make it for you to get at my work, the more this community can grow.

What do Patrons get?

Well, for starters, you’ll get access to every game and every podcast that I make. All you have to do is hit subscribe and I’ll take care of the rest, sending quality RPG stuff straight to your feed or inbox.

Everyone who backs three dollars or more gets Game Closet early, and will get some additional shows early if and when those shows are funded. You’ll also get plaintext versions of every single game I write, as they’re released.

Backers at the five dollar level get the early podcasts and plaintext games PLUS the finished and spiffy PDFs of every game I write as well. These rewards are retroactive so if you sign up now for five dollars a month you’ll have access to everything that’s been released so far.

We do have a sponsorship tier at ten dollars a month if your RPG organization or company would like to advertise with Riverhouse Games. I’d love to be able to shill for you at this level, so check it out!
$83.85 of $100 per month
$100 a month unlocks three months of the year where Game Closet will release on a weekly basis instead of biweekly! In February (for our anniversary), June (for Pride month), and November (to close out Con Season) we'll do special release months with weekly episodes and any other celebrations that we can think of.
