Select a membership level

SCOUT

$5
per month
As a Scout member of the Ranger Class at the Exploration Society you are often at the forefront of new releases and trends in the tabletop community. Patience is your virtue. You know that sometimes the greatest treasures take time to acquire. Although you're one of the lower ranks you still get access to nearly all of the same rewards as the other tiers - you might just have to wait a bit longer for them to "vest."

Includes:
  • Inclusion in end credits on YouTube VODs & vids
  • BTS access
  • Discord (new level/color)
    • RP specials
  • Society Pin (green) - after 6 months
  • Merch (t-shirt) - after 6 months
  • Merch (mug) - after 8 months
  • Merch (DHD dice full set with STS logo) - after 12 months
  • VIP TIER III access at select events
  • Add NPC of note (if desired, their RP NPC's antics become canon in the main story - whether or not they are ever actually featured or mentioned)
  • Video Game Server - queue to play games with us weekly
  • Add Banes & Boons*
  • 20% Discount on TeePublic merch
Includes Discord benefits

VOYAGER

$10
per month
The Voyagers are members of the Ranger Class at the Exploration Society. They have far-reaching ambition and enjoy treks of any kind. They aren't as patient as the Scouts, but they make up for it in sheer gumption.

You receive the same rewards as the SCOUT tier, but some unlock sooner!

Includes:
  • Inclusion in end credits on YouTube VODs & vids
  • BTS access
  • Discord (new level/color)
    • RP specials

Includes Discord benefits

RANGER

$25
per month
Rangers are indeed trailblazers in the Society. As the namesake of the entire sub-class they have a great deal of responsibility maintaining the borders of good RPGs. Being on the frontlines also means they unlock things even sooner than VOYAGERS!

    • RP specials
  • Society Pin (green) - immediately

About Saving Throw

April 2021 Note: We are working on a new sponsorship platform which will provide incredible benefits! However, until that is fully operational we still need your support! Patreon memberships to the Society will be honored for as long as you maintain membership!

What is the Exploration Society?

You are an adventurer. You are always on the hunt for RPGs that are either new, exotic, classic, streamlined or all of the above! You're also always seeking ways to improve your gameplay. There's no better way to do this than through the Saving Throw Exploration Society!

What do we do on Saving Throw?

For the quick and dirty, you can see our work here: Saving Throw on YouTube

We produce a wide range of content devoted to tabletop gaming, especially RPGs.

We play lots of indie games (New Pantheon: AcademiaRPG Exploration SocietyAll Games, No Masters), popular games like D&D (Dice Ex MachinaDark Lanterns), games with humor and heart (Salt Bay) and games with horror and grit (Wildcards). We even just chat about RPGs (Owlbear Soup)! 

We also teach RPGs through Tutorials and Play. That's what we do. If you've ever...

  • Wanted to pick up a rulebook but were daunted by the concepts...
  • Wanted to introduce a friend to RPGs but didn't have time to teach them...
  • Wanted to try a new game but were intimidated by terms or even other players...
We're here to help.

We're committed to raising up marginalized voices; introducing RPGs and playstyles you may never have heard of; and playing with diverse and inclusive tables. 

What benefits do I get with Society membership?

In addition to unlocking more shows for your enjoyment and education, you'll also get new ways to interact with us like Discord channels, the ability to add NPCs to streamed campaigns, swag, merch discounts, VIP treatment at in-person events & much more!

At Saving Throw we believe everyone should get access to the same things, and therefore all tiers receive much the same packages. The primary difference is the time it takes to have those rewards "vest".
Plus every Society member will receive a pin which will identify you to other Society members and the world as one of the foremost authorities on RPG adventure!

Where's the money go?

To do what we do requires a great deal of planning, manpower, and space. Your monthly pledge will be used to help us pay for our equipment, storage space while we rebuild our studio space, payroll for all our wonderful cast, equipment and software, website needs and more. Our expenses for 2020 were nearly $70,000! Yeah! I know! And our income does not begin to cover that so a lot comes out of Dom's pocket which means rice & beans. You know the drill.

Thank You!

Seriously. We do this because we love RPGs and we think you're pretty swell. It's the sort of content we've always wanted to see and having your support making it is a dream come true. So what do you say? Care to join this party? Now... LET'S DUNGEON!
Goals
$1,981.28 of $3,000 per month
This completely covers our current costs, keeping us in the black. We can only go up from here! When hit we'll have another movie night celebration and one of you lucky backers will be chosen to guest on an upcoming show!
