Very Random Encounters is creating actual play podcasts

Welcome to Very Random Encounters, a show where we play pen and paper RPGs in which we’ve randomly determined as many things as possible including characters, villains, names, places, and other **weirder** stuff. It all comes together to be a very random encounter.

Thank you so much for checking out our show! When we came up with the idea for an actual play podcast with completely random elements, we had no idea if or even how that would work. But a year and almost four seasons later we're having a blast rolling with the weird!

We want to do more! We love our podcast and we want to do more, but we need your help! Your patronage will help us take our show to the next level. Here's what you can help us with

  • Upgrading equipment. Right now we are working with some pretty basic stuff that is working ok for us, but it could be so much better. 
  • Running costs. If the last year has taught us anything, it's that we'll happily make this podcast for free as long as we are able. By becoming a patron you'll be helping us keep the lights on for years to come.
  • Merch. We love stuff, and we know you do too! We'd love to be able to offer you the ability to sport the VRE logo on all kinds of stuff.
  • Cons. Want to meet Concordia Mina, Shift 9, Millie, or Zegniln in person? We want to meet you too! Your contribution could help us get to conventions to meet all our wonderful fans!
That's great, but what do all you rockstars get??? As part of our Patreon family, you'll get access to exclusive content like an extra monthly podcast, character art, stickers, and your name in our random pool for naming NPCs.
 

We have so many fun things planned and we hope you are as excited as we are to see where the show will go! Your support means so much to us, and helps all those that can't afford to be a patron.

Lots of love,
Lee, Logan, Travis and Greg

Every even month (February, April, June, etc) we will make an episode of a silly podcast we are calling Very Random Podcasting where the four of us will sit down and talk about a random topic. If a whole episode about ASMR, music, burping, or other....weirder...things sounds good, then this is the level for you!

you also get access to all previous level rewards!

d20- GM Advice Show
$20 or more per month 0 patrons
You will get a bimonthly GM's Corner hangout on even months. This will be alive hangout advice show (platform to be announced) where you can ask questions and get advice on how to GM your very own game. This will mostly be run by Greg, our most experienced GM, but may also include other cohosts as well.

And of course, access to all previous rewards.

Goals
$175 of $200 per month
At $200 a month our running costs will be covered for the show and we will be able to upgrade our equipment.
Best of all, we will create a sequel episode to a previous season! This will be a once yearly episode for d4 tiers and above. Join in as we once again take up the mantles of our alter egos and create a fun episode full of all the random goodness you've come to know and love. Plus you get to vote on what season we make the sequel to!
