Welcome to the new look of Riverhouse Games in 2019! 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 Let These Mermaids Touch Your Dick Maybe, a party game about thirsty mermaids, or i-90-E, an abstract roleplaying game about walking through a wondrous sci-fi exploration.

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.

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.

You’ll also get access to the Riverhouse Discord at a special level. The Riverhouse Discord will also be getting a renovation in 2019, with regular hangouts and chats that will give special spots to Patreon backers.

Additionally, you’ll get priority sign up to a monthly game session! These sessions will be one shot events trying out all sorts of different games. Every month we’ll schedule a weekend morning to get together, hang out, and play a new fun game on the Riverhouse Games Twitch stream. Patreon backers will get first dibs to grab seats before anyone else. These games will start in February 2019 and happen at least once every month ongoing.

Finally, special backers can sign up for game design chats with a cohort of designers. If we get backers at this level, we’ll have regular meetings to go over your game projects and work through the process. Let me know how best I can help your project become a reality and we’ll work to make it so!

Listen.

Do not back at this level. There are other things you could spend your money on.

That said, if you back at this level I'll put your face on every game we make, it'll be up on our stuff when we go to conventions, I will personally sing your praise. You'll get a hard copy of everything we make, whether that's a printed micro/nano game, or a book of one of our larger projects.
Includes Discord rewards
Goals
$103 of $150 per month
At $150 a month we'd be able to start putting money aside for upgrading audio equipment & paying for better drafting software for even more quality improvements.
