Hello Eorzeans!
Speakers Network is a Final Fantasy XIV community content channel on YouTube and Twitch

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. Included is also the Monthly Report, which sums up the past month, a general status report, as well as future planned content.

$10 | Senior Speaker: Post-Show Priority - Gain priority access in the Speakers Podcast's Post-Show, meaning you'll be able to speak directly to the Speakers live on-air! Patreon Exclusive Content Pass - Content made exclusively for Patreon will be unlocked at this tier. This includes blooper reels, audiobooks etc.

$20 | Master Speaker:  Unique Discord Role - Stand out in the crowd! All Master Speakers gets the "Master Speaker" role, which means you get a neat red colored name, as well as being shown separated near the top of the Discord member list, as well as access to the Patreon Discord Channel. 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 are also included in this tier.

$50 | Supreme Speaker: Unique Discord Role + Discord Channels - Like the Master Speaker tier, your name will be shown in the glorious Supreme Speaker color - BLUE! 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, 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.

Minimum Ilvl



Every week a dungeon is pulled at the end of the Speakers of Hydaelyn podcast, that the speakers have to run at minimum ilvl!

Goals

If this goal is reached, we've officially reached our first internal financial goal. At this point we're able to fully fund the channel and thus we'll be able to put more time and effort into our content.

Chronicles of a Realm will finally be finished, with a mid-month release, premiering live on the Post Show.

The full backstory behind the SoaR/RoaR storyline, fully cast with a monthly release. Patreon exclusive.

Return to RoaR
A look back on how the series was made, what challenges I encountered for each episode, as well as answering Patron questions. Patreon exclusive launch, with a possible public release at a later time.

When this goal is reached - a full 12 hour celebratory stream will be hosted on Twitch! More details on this as we get closer to this goal.
