Greetings, and thank you for dropping in! Let me tell you a little bit about us and why we have joined the Patreon community. Let's start with the big picture and move down.

RudderHaven: RudderHaven is a small book publishing company based out of Granite City, IL (though we will soon be moving.) It started back in 2000 under the name Athor Productions (another company trademarked the company name, so we had to drop it.) We have several imprints with specific themes and audiences. Our goal is to produce high-quality work that upholds a high moral standard, mainly authored by new and little-known writers/artists.

Additionally, RudderHaven is opening a new game development division, currently running under the name of Ubriaco Studios.
  • Ubriaco Studios: The goal of this studio coincides with the mission of RudderHaven, but in the fields of digital and tabletop gaming. Currently, we are working on two projects, a massively multiplayer online roleplaying game (MMO) and a tabletop roleplaying game (hereafter referred to as RPG), both being developed by students of Becker College's ground-breaking Game Studio program, in association with their upcoming label Accipiter Studio (more about that in a moment.)
General Partners/Managing Editors
  • Jonathan Rudder: Jonathan Rudder is the author of The Milhavior Chronicles, a series of five fantasy novels, as well as several short works, the editor of a number of anthologies, professional game designer (was a content designer, writer, editor, and chief lore expert for The Lord of the Rings Online MMO for nearly a decade), and Instructor of Interactive Media at Becker College, specializing in content design.
  • Douglas Rudder: Douglas Rudder is the author of Tolkien: Roncevaux, Ethandune, and Middle-earth, an analysis of some of the literary influences on the works of J.R.R. Tolkien, as well as several short works, the editor of a number of anthologies, business analyst, XML specialist, and new media expert. He would also tell you that he's Jonathan's "older, wiser, and better-looking brother." Jonathan would grant "older."

Becker College/Accipiter Studio: Though not a direct recipient of Patreon funds, it is vital to acknowledge Becker College in Worcester, MA, with deep gratitude for permitting the game projects to be developed through their Game Studio program. As of 2018, Becker has been rated #4 in the world for game design degree programs by the prestigious Princeton Review. Becker's program boasts a faculty team loaded with long-term, award-winning game industry professionals, not lifetime academics. As part of their degree program, they have instituted a course series dubbed Game Studio, where students from all concentrations and skill sets gather together in teams of 10-20 to develop and produce games for commercial release in a development studio environment, rather than a classroom. Accipiter Studio, whose logo appears in the intro video, is the name of Becker's development studio, emerging from the Game Studio course series.

When you join our campaign, you'll also get to meet some of the brilliant students, alumni, and professionals involved in Becker's Interactive Media Design degree program and more!

So why Patreon?
  • Independent Creators, Small Business: Jonathan, out of a desire to maintain full creative control over his works, started Athor Productions in 2000 as a vehicle to publish his own books. Print-on-demand was emerging as a viable, cost-effective path for independent authors, and allowed for the desired level of control. However, the business moved quickly from a personal publishing source to draw from a wider pool of authors. The name changed to RudderHaven Publications in the mid-2000s, and Douglas assumed ownership, while Jonathan focused on writing and his work on LotRO. The company was finally rebirthed as just plain RudderHaven in 2013 as a partnership between Douglas and Jonathan. (We dropped Publications as we foresaw branching into media other than books, which is in fact happening.)
  • Tremendous Needs, Out-of-Pocket Funding: Because of the manner in which our business was formed, we were and still are ineligible for nearly all traditional funding methods (such as SBA loans), and so have been working out-of-pocket since inception. We both continue to hold full-time jobs outside of RudderHaven in order to provide for our families, but the growth we are seeing necessitates additional funding to maintain. We can no longer manage editorial and graphic design responsibilities on our own, and with the establishment of Ubriaco Studios, we need to hire a full development staff. We can't do it alone!
So what do we need?
The list is too long to expound on here, but below you will find a few items of note. Some are near-term, low-hanging fruit that can be acquired within a few months if we can obtain enough subscribers. Some are long-term that will still require external funding, such as Patreon, but may be realized piecemeal.
  • Art support, both cover and illustrations, for book publishing and the tabletop RPG project. Douglas and Jonathan are both capable of moderate character art and decent graphic design, but neither are true artists. Even commissioning art is expensive, much less hiring professional artists and graphic designers. This is a long-term goal. However, we can commission on a project-by-project basis, so that could be easier to accomplish in the near term.
  • Art support for the MMO project. Yes, we have student artists on the team, but if you are familiar with MMOs, you know how art intensive they are... our awesome team of students (whose art you will start seeing if you join our campaign) need help to drive the project to production.
  • Two dedicated development servers, plus Perforce licensing, for the MMO project. This is a near-term necessity. While the Accipiter Studio teams have full access to the Becker servers/source control, we need servers/source control that can move into RudderHaven control after the game launches. As well, we are developing with Unreal 4, which connects seamlessly with Perforce. Becker uses Plastic, which does not connect seamlessly. We really need this for the Fall 2018 semester, so it is very definitely a near-term goal.
  • At least one high-end alpha station for creating/rendering high-resolution cinematic sequences for the MMO project. Last time we looked into this, those run around $10k for a basic model. Also a near-term goal, preferably for the Fall 2018 semester. (Again, these would be owned by RudderHaven.)
  • Internships. We would love to offer paid internships to students, but unfortunately do not have the capability at this time.
  • JOBS. Yes, I Internet-shouted. While a long-term, the chief goal of our campaigning is the production of employment opportunities. There are several students on the MMO project that we would hire right now, if we had the funds. There are others -- student or otherwise -- on our radar, for both the book publishing and game divisions. As well, RudderHaven needs dedicated full-time management. While it will take time to garner enough funds to hire full publishing and development teams for both branches of the business, we believe that with your help we can start hiring within the year.

These are only a few examples of our needs, but ones that bear highlighting.

So we've sold you... but how does Patreon work?
If you are not already familiar with Patreon, it essentially brings the old school patronage system to creative entities with a contemporary flare (only more forgiving than the old world.) Basically, you subscribe to creators who are generating content you appreciate (in this case, us!) We are utilizing a monthly subscription, rather than a per post subscription, meaning that you are pledging a certain dollar amount every month, which will be automatically debited from the payment system of your choice. In return, you will receive rewards based om the tier you choose to subscribe at (as low as $1!) Some rewards, especially at lower dollar tiers, provide smaller non-material (don't want to use immaterial, as that implies worthless) rewards, such as free previews of content, access to RudderHaven/Ubriaco Studios staff, developers, and contractors through Discord, videos, podcasts, and more. The higher the tier, the more palpable the rewards (be aware that many physical rewards may require subscription at a particular tier for a certain number of months to validate the expense of the reward.)

Are you ready?
Our goals are listed on the left-hand side of the page, subscription tiers and rewards on the right-hand side. We have goals posted up to $20k per month, but remember: goals are fluid and subject to change. What may be desired, might not be feasible. It may turn out that monies are better spent on another initiative... we will make sure you are aware of any such changes.

We intend to add to our rewards as time progresses. If you have any suggestions, let us know!

Thank you again for joining us on this journey!

NOTE: This goal is based on research estimates and may change, + or -, based on actual cost.
