When I started recording Wards of the Red Fleet, I thought it would just be a fun way to keep the players of our campaign up to date. Then I started editing out boring rules conversation, and adding music and sound effects, and all of a sudden it went from a minor distraction to this whole production.

I posted it on reddit and the players tossed it around to their friends, and their friends and so on, and all of a sudden we had upwards of a hundred people listening to the thing. In the scope of the internet, a hundred people isn't very much, but for me and the players it was a big deal. People that weren't us cared. They wanted to follow along and see where the story went, and we were suddenly playing D&D for an audience. Suddenly there were hosting fees and double checking to make sure things were credited, and it was more than just a monthly D&D game over the internet. It was a podcast with an audience.

I want to thank that nameless, faceless audience that I've only ever seen in site analytics reports. I have no idea who you people are, but you gave some purpose to a thing I started doing to kill time when I got laid off. Life sucks some times, but it's a little better when you know somebody else in the world cares about the worlds you made up in your head.

I have a ridiculous amount of fun editing this stuff together, but I think it can be be better. So here's where you, the audience come in. I want to push that audio quality even higher with better microphones. I want to expand our music options with some more-expensive-than-free tracks. WOTRF is going to continue no matter what, but hey, if you like the podcast, and you want to hear it get even better, or even if you just want to throw a couple bucks my way for providing a few hours of entertainment, here's the bucket.

Toss in a buck or two, and I'll use it to make this adventure even better.

There aren't any special rewards based on how much you fund us. WOTRF is and will remain accessible to anyone and everyone for free. It wasn't started to sell pledge packages and I'm not about to start now.

If you choose to become a patron, you have my undying gratitude and the knowledge that you've helped buy a microphone, or a cup of coffee, or a cool bit of backing audio.
