I'm Wes Schneider, co-creator of the Pathfinder RPG and world, game designer, novelist, and freelance word guy. Whenever time allows, I answer questions about writing and gaming, tell creepy stories, and stream fantasy & horror video games.

I'm pretty critical of whatever I'm working on—writing, game making, streaming. That means most of my ventures take considerable time and planning. I'm not really into doing anything half-baked. On the whole, I'd like to devote more time to passion projects like personal fiction, showing off awesome games, and answering more of your gaming questions, but those ventures have to compete with my work and freelance schedules.

That's where you come in! With your generosity I'll devote more resources to streaming, giving gaming/design advice, and more—like collecting my scattered gaming digressions (blog articles, interviews, Tumblr posts, etc) into useful content. In the short term, that means more of my writing online, better quality streams and videos, Ask Me Anything events, answering more RPG related queries, and gauging interest in more substantial schemes.

With enough support, I'd love to merge my design advice and streaming, creating instructional videos for crafting game content. I'm also designing new worlds for gaming and fiction projects, plotting various other streaming projects, mulling over min-game projects, and who knows what else? The sky's the limit, but if you help me get there, then of course I'll be designing things you've always wanted to see!

So let's get started!

Already have thoughts on what you'd like to see me working on? Click here to take my poll regarding your stream/design preferences!

Thanks a ton for reading and—even more—for spreading the word!

My most honest appreciation. You will recieve bleeding-edge access to worldbuilding articles/projects every two weeks—engaging with a new fantasy content as it develops. Help influence this work through polls and conversations on what you'd like to see developed next!

Gratitude, from my innermost insides.

Along with the rewards of all previous tiers, you'll gain influence over the content of my AMA streams. Whatever secrets you wish to learn—that I can reveal—are yours. The content of these streams will be released to you soon after recording (pending editing), and a month before public release. Additionally, your name will be listed in the credits of any PDF or long-form video project I produce.

You're a plotter after my own heart.

This tier includes acess to a secret archive of personal game notes, maps, playlists, workbook pages, unpublished designs, and deep excisions from my private cutting room floor. Each item includes commentary, design thoughts, and/or contextualization. As hard copies are scanned and as new efforts take shape they will be collected in these archives. Feel free to make use of them for your personal (non-commercial) games as you will. (Archive access granted after spending one month at this level.)

Backers also receive access to the Council Chamber Discord channel, where they can plot alongside other backers, learn bleeding edge project news, and look down upon various rabbles.

My thankfulness, but also, my attention. At this tier, you'll gain all earlier tier rewards, and be granted access to a private, ongoing, Discord-based round table that serves as a forum to discuss projects I can speak freely about—and for whatever else you wish. This council will also help determine the content of the polls for upcoming streams, fiction, instructional content, and similar projects.

Additionally, you'll receive early access to all video content and be invited to participate in secret stream events—like backer-only game days.

Once a month, my pen and experience are yours.

Monthly, you may send me a written document of your choosing and I will provide 300+ words of substantive feedback. This could be conceptual help with an adventure, advice on a game in development, feedback on your writing (not an editing pass), or the like. I will work out the details of what this means with you via e-mail so you get exactly what you need. Similar brief, credited writing projects might also be entertained. Whatever it is, it's exclusive to you!

Additionally, you'll receive the content of all previous tiers and your name will occupy a place of prominence in the credits of any PDF or long-form video project I produce.

Finally, you'll receive an invitation to participate in a secret RPG session, run by me at Paizocon or Gen Con (though travel to and access to those events is your own responcibility; details TBD).

Basic Stream Schedule: With even modest backing, I can commit to weekly streams. I will use this funding to track down new nerd games and make improvements to the quality of my streams.
