The backbone of Speakers Network is the weekly FFXIV podcast "Speakers of Hydaelyn" which has been running more or less uninterrupted since 2014.
We're currently running several different shows on our channels, and we're working on a schedule to ensure our content is released as regular as possible.
Why we need your help:Making these podcasts and videos takes a lot of time and hard work. The video series takes a lot of time and the work that's put into it is hopefully apparent in the end products. However, due to the trainwreck that is YouTube's ad system at the moment, most of our content is demonetized from the second it's uploaded, meaning we earn disturbingly little on our work.
The number one complaint we recieve on our channel and videos is:
"I love your videos, but you don't release them fast enough!!!"And that is absolutely true. We don't release our videos regularly. We have finally caught up on the podcasts, and the video series are now running on a schedule. But what people often forget to think about is this; it's not our job. We really wish it was. If it was we'd be making videos daily, alas, it's not and we have to do our regular jobs to survive.
But what's in it for you?Our Patreon Campaign is split into 5 different tiers. Each of them unlocking different content. The best part? They all stack, so a $10 tier comes with everything from the $1 and $5 tiers as well!
$1 | Entry Speaker:
Symbolic Support - basically what it says.
We thank you for your support! Includes a tier-specific discord role.
$5 | Junior Speaker:
Video Early Access - Watch Speakers Videos one to two days before release!
Name in end credits: Your name will scroll over Lukile's head in all main series videos, as well as the beginning of every podcast episode.
Patreon Exclusive Content Pass - Content made exclusively for Patreon will be unlocked at this tier. This includes audio projects like the SoaR stories.
You also gain access to the Questions from the Syndicate channel on our official Discord server - where you can send in questions and topics for the Speakers to discuss in the Post-Show!
Your name will also be read out loud in every podcast episode. Also included is access to sneak peek videos for upcoming content and features.
But wait, there's more - Patreon-only live streams (including movie nights) are also included in this tier.
You will naturally be shown separately from the others - right below the Speakers themselves.
Access to the Supreme Speakers-only Channel is also included, where you can talk to fellow Supreme Speakers as well as the Speakers themselves. From time to time, content will be created exclusively for Supreme Speakers.
In addition to this, after 3 months you will receive a PHYSICAL MUG!
Our Patreon campaign is constantly changing, so expect more content to be added soon!
What Kind of Content Are We Producing:
Speakers of Hydaelyn
Speakers of Hydaelyn serves as our weekly Final Fantasy XIV podcast, which has been running since 2014, and focuses on everything related to Eorzea and the FFXIV community. This was for a long time the main attraction on our channel, and is still the primary focus. Having run for almost 3 years, we've built a strong and dedicated community of Speakers, and thanks to Patreon, the show now runs for a total of 2 hours per week. The podcast goes live on Saturdays at 7pm GMT /12pm PDT!
Remnants of a Realm
This series focuses on the specific locations and features that was present in 1.0 that carried over to 2.0, for better or worse. Also features and/or locations that didn't make it to 2.0. The series releases once a week, and is released one day early for Junior Speakers and up.
Secrets of a Realm
This series focuses on hidden easter eggs and unused content (from both 1.0 and 2.0+) in Final Fantasy XIV. This series is released on a monthly schedule.
Chronicles of a Realm
The most recent addition to the Speakers lineup. This series is all about the lore. It's planned to FFXIV's entire storyline from 1.0 to current day. It was a highly requested series and a new episode is posted every month!
Every week a dungeon is pulled at the end of the Speakers of Hydaelyn podcast, that the speakers have to run at minimum ilvl!
Tales of a Realm is renewed for a second season.
Speakers of Hydaelyn's sister show "Ceruleum Reactor" gets greenlit, and auditions for hosts will begin. Patrons will be first in line.
Chronicles of a Realm continues as a Patreon exclusive covering the two remaining City-State stories and future stories decided by Patrons.
Lukile becomes a lalafell for a month, kicking off with a 12-hour stream.
