Hello! I'm the Angry Game Master! I give RPG Advice with Attitude!

Every week at TheAngryGM.com, I deliver tons of quality gaming content that people absolutely love because I'm the best damned GM to ever walk this green Earth. Seriously. But I can't do it alone.

Over the past few years, The Angry GM site has grown into a massive undertaking. I provide, detailed, in-depth analysis of various topics for Dungeons & Dragons and other table-top RPG game masters. From a detailed description of the most basic of GMing skills to advanced analysis of the rules and how to change them to suit your needs. If you're still learning the ropes, you'll find articles about running games, building adventures, starting campaigns, and designing your own worlds. If you like to rip apart the game and make it your own, you'll find wodges of custom rules and design insights. It isn't hyperbole to say that TheAngryGM.com is literally the most important site about table-top role-playing games ever! It's the reason Dave Arneson and Gary Gygax invented Dungeons & Dragons.

Your pledge of support ensures regular, weekly releases of full-length feature articles covering a broad range of gaming topics. One week, you'll learn How to F$&%ing Run a Game. Next week, you'll learn how to Hack Your F$&%ing Game or you might find a diatribe on a random gaming topic; basically a bunch of Random Bulls$&%. Beyond that, your support helps ensure other content like the Ask Angry advice column, the Let's Build a Megadungeon project, and the weekly podcast collaboration project Digressions & Dragons keep happening.

How can you make all of that happen? Easy. Decide what those feature-length articles are worth and pledge that. Are they worth $1? $3? $5? $50? At the end of the month, you'll be charged for each article released that month, TO A MAXIMUM OF FOUR. You will never be charged for more than four articles each month, even if I crank out extra content.

Now, what if you want to pledge less than $1 an article? What if your money is tight and you just want to drop a small monthly pledge like a dollar a month? You can do that by setting a maximum when you make your pledge. That's up to you. The reason I'm not charging you on a monthly basis is simple: I don't want to be paid unless I'm doing the work. If I don't put out articles, I don't get paid. Fair is fair. I don't believe in taking money just to keep a site alive if it never updates.

And that will never change.

That said, if you do pledge a certain amount per article for four articles a month, I want to offer you a special thank you. So check out the various pledge-level rewards when you decide how much my content is worth. Those are just little things, though. Because I figure the best thing I can do to say thank you is to keep cranking out quality content.

Thanks for reading all of this s$&% and thanks for your support.

Thanks for your support! I don't hate you. I'll even put your name on a list of people I don't hate right on my website. So that you can tell the world I don't hate you. Officially. And if you ever find me at a convention, a game store, or other public venue, just introduce yourself and I will tell anyone you are with that I don't hate you. Hell, I'll even write down that I don't hate you on something if you really want it.

Thanks for your support! I don't hate you. Seriously. This is a serious level of not-hatred. Just like everyone else I don't hate, you can tell the world I don't hate you. And if you find me in some sort of public venue, I will confirm that I don't hate you in front of actual human beings. In addition, if you've got a blog or a Twitter feed or a Twitch channel or a YouTube channel or something geeky and game related, I'll go ahead and put THAT on a list right on my website with a link so the world can get at it. As long as its clean, relatively safe for work, apolitical, and geek-related in some capacity. Obviously, if I ain't comfortable giving the link, I'll let you know and you can decide whether its worth keeping the pledge level. And I'll check your s$&% out myself too. If it's really good, I might even call it out somehow or rate, comment, favorite, or subscribe. That ain't a promise of endorsement. But impress me, and I'll let people know.


You also get access to the Angry Discord Server! What's that? It's a Discord server where we have all sorts of cool discussions about gaming or whatever. Not only that, you'll get to listen to The Angry GM Unscreened Monthly Live Chat via Discord. Or you'll be able to download it later on as a super secret MP3 file just for you.

Thanks for your support! If I had friends, I'd call you a friend. But I don't. So the best I can do is call you a frienemy. 

First of all, you get the above rewards. I will add you to a list of frienemies and I'll share a link to your thing if you want it, just like the people I seriously don't hate. Same rules apply. And if you ever run into me in public, you can force me to confirm that we are frienemies. I might even be willing to give you a Frienemy Hug - which is basically a hug where you don't touch me and I don't punch you in retaliation - but only if you catch me on a good day. And you'll get to hang out on the Angry Discord server and listen to the monthly Live Chat. And if you have a microphone and the guts to do it, you might even have the opportunity to ask a question during the Live Chat and get personally abused by me. 


Not only that, I'll also let you see my stuff. See, I have a secret stash of content I've gradually been building up for my own games. It's got maps, custom monsters, and all sorts of other little odds and ends. And if you're my frienemy, you get access to it. And there will be new stuff in there every month.

Thanks for your support. Not only do I not hate you, seriously, and consider you a frienemy, I'm willing to consider you a potential victim. You get all the previous stuff and all the same rules apply. Thank you, hand shake, Discord, Live Chat participation, and the Angry Secret Stash. But you might get an invitation to be a part of the League of the Blue Cloak when a slot opens up. That's a game I run online. And if you get in, you're guaranteed access to one of several four-hour gaming session each month. 


Obviously, I can only run so many games at a time and I invite players to fill open slots every three months. So don't pledge at this level if you're ONLY doing it to get in on the online game. And if you're curious if there are open slots, feel free to contact me.

Goals
$250 – reached! per feature article (up to 4 per month).
If I've got $250 per article pledged, I'm going to let you into my secret GMing lab while I build an awesome megadungeon. In blog form. Twice a month. 

It's no secret that I've been developing a D&D campaign based on exploring a megadungeon complex inspired by some of my favorite video games like Metroid and Dark Souls. It'll put into practice all sorts of design concepts I've written about and some I haven't gotten around to writing about. And it won't be just about combat. It'll be about exploring a space, learning its story, opening new areas to explore, dealing with obstacles and puzzles, AND combat. Thing is, while I plan to publish the whole thing once its done, I'd rather let you watch over my shoulder while I design and develop the damned thing. And, if you don't mind downloading it in bits and pieces, you can get it for free. That's right, I'll blog the development of the whole damned thing, one week at a time.
