Hey there! My name is Alex, I am the Silver Mont. Thanks for taking the time to check out my Patreon.

What do you do, Alex? Why do you do it?
I make YouTube videos. Gaming related; Let's Plays, Lore & Story Analysis and so forth. A large majority of my content revolves around the Souls franchise (Dark Souls, Demon's Souls, Bloodborne) and similar games. I started my channel in 2013 and in 2014 it became my full time occupation. 

What will I get for supporting you?
Rewards are listed on the right of this page, but primarily here's what you'll get - access to a discord channel (an instant messaging app that can be accessed online, in browser, on your desktop or on your smartphone/tablet.) This has been highly requested for some time! It'll let you get closer to me. That's weird. Don't touch me. But you'll be able to talk and play with like-minded fans of Dark Souls / games, including myself, naturally. I'll also share "early looks" at videos before they go out to the public in there, occasionally. There are other rewards too, such as access to the high-res art used on my channel and in my videos. You'll also get a copy of a rubbish fantasy novel I wrote when I was a teenager. And if you'd like something a bit more, a $50 donation gets you a video on a topic of your choice! This is more of a one time thing, as I don't expect anyone to shell out that much a month. This would be done via Paypal. Which can also be used if you'd just like to support me as a one off.

Why should I give you my hard-earned cash, Alex? 
Because you like me. Or you like my content, or both. When it comes to revenue, YouTube is notoriously inconsistent: With a regular job, you know how much money you'll be making each month, from the hours you put in. I could work on a video for 50+ hours and it makes $10. Simply put, despite being a full time occupation, YouTube makes me less than minimum wage. I also have to self-fund anything I should require, and this is what Patreon money would go towards; not limited to, but including the following:

  • Hardware (Microphones, cameras, storage)
  • Software (A/V editing, capture software etc)
  • Internet
  • New games
  • Sustaining my Art Slave
  • Sustaining my own life

Tell me more, I got time to kill.
  • Hardware. Good cameras, stands, tripods and microphones can be very expensive! Setting up the ideal recording space (In other words, not my bedroom) also requires sound-padding and sound-insulation etc. There's also the cost of storage (raw video recordings take up a lot of room!) and so on.
  • Software licenses (Adobe Premiere, Sony Vegas, Final Cut Pro etc) are needed to put all that raw footage together, and these are professional level softwares that charge professional level rates! There's also audio editing software and streaming software that starts to add up. 
  • Internet. Here in the UK, good internet is hard to come by, and absurdly overpriced. Download speeds aren't that important to me, but upload speeds allow me to get my content out sooner, increase my work-load and also allow me to stream live gameplay! This would also include costs such as new telephone lines and the like. 
  • New games, simple enough! Money that will go towards picking up new games to review/preview or even make a full play-through of! I'm always open to taking suggestions for what to play from viewers, and sometimes you guys help me discover a great new game! And if nothing else, it's a good way to cover a game so I can help others decide whether or not they want to take the plunge and pick it up themselves.
  • The Art Slave AKA the talented Janita, the artist behind all the beautiful art you'll see on my channel; from the thumbnails to the banner! Drawing is her livelihood (as YouTube is mine) and support from you guys will also go towards paying her.

And of course, YT + Patreon money goes towards my bills, groceries, general things that keep me alive.

Thanks for taking the time to check out this page.  And if you decide to support me, thanks again! Either way, I'm going to continue making the best content I can!

Checkpoint #1
We're getting there! Every journey has to start somewhere and I think we just hit Sen's Fortress. I'll invest in a new microphone at this goal, probably this one.
