Who are you?

Hi, I'm Sam of Roll1D2Games and over the Summer of 2018, I became the worlds greatest* Crusader Kings II let's player and modder. In a short few months, I amassed thousands of subscribers, friends, and stalkers.

I initially began making these videos in my spare time during university, but after the channel grew in a very unforeseen way, I began putting more and more effort into making these videos. Around September 2018 I left university due to medical reasons, and this meant I would have to go into the big boy world and find a way to support myself. I realised that spending around 8 hours a day creating videos just wasn't possible whilst working a job to live off of, so I decided to close down the channel.

On the 18th of August, I announced that the channel was nearing its end, and in a ridiculous show of support, it was overwhelmingly suggested that I look to Patreon instead of abandoning all hope. With your help, we can keep the channel alive and all of the adventures along with it.

The ultimate goal of Patreon has always been to prop up and allow the channel to continue regardless of Youtube revenue fluctuations. The channel was monetised around August 2018, however even as of today, the amount that the channel earns is incredibly small, and even that can fluctuate massively. I have had situations where revenue has halved over the course of a few days for seemingly no reason. My personal aim is to grow the channel to the point where we can shut down the patreon and become solely self-sufficient.

100% NO FEAR GUARANTEE
I have personally seen several issues with some of my favourite creators turning to Patreon and I want to address these and cast aside any doubts that you might have when it comes to my own campaign.

Firstly, I will always remain fully transparent with the campaign, and the Youtube Channels, overall success. Within the bounds of Youtubes policy, I try to provide as much feedback to subscribers and backers on the Discord channel as much as possible. I also discuss upcoming series, and hold regular votes on the content that is coming next, so you get the content you back the channel for.

If there ever comes a time where making content no longer seems viable, be it financial or some otherwise unforseen situation, I will announce this with a months window of time, so that you can reevaluate any pledges you have made to the channel. I have personally been stung by projects I have believed in and backed only for them to disappear without warning.

Secondly, the content you would expect to see on the main channel will always remain there. I will not make any series from the main channel a "Patreon Exclusive". I will not fully transition over to Patreon only videos, nor will my main focus be elsewhere other than Youtube. As long as this patreon remains public, running, and backable, the videos will remain consistent and where they are.

What do you do?

Every day I record two videos for the main Roll1D2Games channel, these have almost entirely consisted of my own personal mods, modpacks, and adjustments offering an experience you wouldn't get anywhere else. We also have community and patreon votes for what content will come next on the channel, giving you guys that bit of control over what you see.

I also do let's plays and comedy games on a second channel with a girl that lives in my house and eats my food; Elise and Sam.

Behind the scenes I have created several mods which have featured in many of my series. For my Elder Kings series, I created a story-driven overhaul mod based around the fan favourite character and his journey to godhood; El-Rang's Ascension. The Gilded Republic was a unique starting point, religion, and culture mod for the Game of Thrones series offering something not offered by the base game, along with overhauling the trade and building system. Using entirely suggestions and ideas from my community, I'm working on a sequel mod to the Elder Kings series, expected after Holy Fury releases; Dwemer Contingency.

And on top of all of this, I am also an accomplished and very talented voice actor (available for hire) lending my voice to such series as Sakura Fantasy, Hatoful Boyfriend, and Yakuza 0. Take a look at my voice acting reel HERE and be amazed.


Why Patreon?

As you can imagine, this is a lot of work, and I wouldn't be able to commit so much time to these projects whilst also working a job to support myself. I'm turning to Patreon so you can help support and guide the content I produce whilst also making it possible in the first place.

With your support I can dedicate more and more time to producing better content, creating custom mods and scenarios that my supporters come up with, and eventually upgrade my equipment to give everything a much more polished feel.


What are the benefits?

Being able to continue!
Twice a day, every day of the week, I'll create and upload two videos, each 30 mintues minimum, of the series you curate and vote on. This will be the very minimum of what to expect, and would be impossible without your help.

Community Support!
I'll be able to dedicate time to creating tutorials that are requested by you, such as the compatability patch and map generator tutorials. These will most likely be heavily edited and require a lot of technical research beforehand, so expect these sporadically!

Weekly Patreon Behind the Scenes Content!
Having this page means that I can post content I don't believe would suit the main channel page, and offer you guys a little look into what your support goes into. I will post weekly content such as the more technical thumbnail creation, video editing, and audio tools I use, however I'll also share development diaries for mods and modpacks I'm working on!

Patreon Exclusive Polls!
Suggest and vote on the Patreon series, and this doesn't have to just be Crusader Kings, any and all suggestions are welcome. If the polls are close then we can start building up a queue of content that you want to see!

Backers-only Discord Chat!
Access to the Patreon-exclusive discord chatroom, where we can have a clear discussion about the channel, patreon content, any feedback you have, or just a general chat!
But you said there would be no exclusive "private" content!
Yes, this is true, however I'm making this backer-only in order to prevent it from being abused by anonymous users who try to ruin the experience for everyone. Hopefully you can understand and agree with why I'm doing this!

This is a bad idea and I will probably regret it.
A shoutout at the end of every video. Yes, every single video. That's twice a day for those keeping count. And no, I won't just record it once and use the same clip, I'll record it fresh every single time because you deserve it.

You are skilled, talented, and very handsome. Perhaps even a demi-god. And a shoutout isn't enough for you, you'll still get one, but why not go further! We will immortalise you, like the god you are, with your custom house being added to a random nearby duchy at the start of every series! We'll still do the random viewer giveaways too but you've just bypassed all the hassle of leaving a comment and being randomly chosen!

I can't guarantee your house and it's members won't be completely destroyed by Dragons/Werewolves/The Aztecs, but in each series you'll have your role to play.

This is ridiculous, I don't expect anyone to ever back this. And if you do you've gone too far. I wish I had more to offer you for your support. Maybe one day if I make merchandise this would be the ideal tier for it, but for now, this is for those crazy few who just want to throw in something extra.

$577 of $600 per month
Full Time!
At this amount I could truly treat the channel as a job, and any extra time could go into other let's plays on the second channel or run consistent Twitch streams.
