Why start a Patreon page now?

Game Of Thrones is getting over in a few hours (and maybe it's already over, if you are reading this late at night) and we are sure many people might be wondering if we are crazy to start a Patreon page right now, when everything is over. The show might end but it doesn't mean this beautiful world created by George R. R. Martin is coming to an end. We are still waiting for The Winds of Winter to release and George R. R. Martin has just confirmed that he hasn't even started writing A Dream of Spring. In addition to that, filming for the prequel series has started in Belfast. So, even though Game Of Thrones TV series is ending, the fandom has a lot to look forward to and we are planning some big things for the community.

We also have a really crazy idea, something that we aren't sure if it will be possible to work on but we still want to give it a shot. So make sure you read till the end so that you can understand what we want to achieve and then read about the crazy idea that we have.

So far we have created a Death Pool that allows users to participate on a weekly basis, an app (a beta version at the moment) that allows users to read news, chat with other fans and check memes, and we have been releasing weekly episode-based GIFs and we are planning more things that will help in creating a community where fans of the books and the show can access a huge range of content in a single place.

In order to create this content, we have been using the money earned from our site but it has a big limitation. The amount of targets we can achieve are directly related to the amount of money we earn from the site and that’s why we have finally decided to set-up a Patreon page, so that we can get more people involved in the project and make sure we can achieve targets at a faster pace and bring in fresh ideas that helps in expanding the scope of our project.


Collaboration with the community

There are a lot of Game Of Thrones fans who create some wonderful content and many of them don’t even get paid for their efforts. We will be using the funds that we receive from the patrons to collaborate with creators all around the world and they will get paid for doing what they love.

George R. R. Martin has created countless stories that haven’t made it to the show. We want to create videos that are similar to the Game Of Thrones Histories and Lores videos and this project will help us in collaborating with artists who will get paid to bring these videos to life and the community will get to experience more stories from this world.

We also want to commission artists to create portraits of characters who have never been a part of the show or work with artists on a project similar to the Unseen Westeros Exhibition (but on an even larger scale) and explore the places we have never visited before.

We want to create a highly detailed map of the world and would like to collaborate with artists on that. In the future, if we are well funded, we can also invite cast and crew from the show for AMA sessions or interviews. We can collaborate to create music that’s inspired by the show and the books or a simple game or a short comic series that focuses on adventures of characters from the books or show (Adventures of Arya and The Hound or Tormund and Ghost) and the possibilities are endless.

This project will ensure that artists are rewarded for creating wonderful content for the community, rather than putting in efforts and then just sharing their content on social media for free, hoping that other people notice it.

There are a lot of things we can work on and we will be taking feedback to expand into more categories. Initially we would prefer to avoid working on things like podcasts or anything that’s being done by a lot of people. At the moment there are a number of people who are creating podcasts about the books and the show and are doing a wonderful job and we would rather focus on things that haven’t yet been touched by others and create something that’s new.

Your support will help us in making this dream a reality. A project that will use the money that you have contributed, to support creators around the globe, in bringing to life a world that’s still largely unexplored. Even if we don’t receive enough support for this project, we will still continue investing our own money to make it happen but as we explained earlier, we won’t be able to achieve all the targets and the project will move ahead at a slower pace. Right now we are about to commission a set of artwork and if we receive your support, we will be able to work with multiple artists at the same time.


Regarding the Patreon project

We want to be frank with you right from the beginning. This is the first time we have created a Patreon page and we are still learning about using this platform and we would be grateful if we receive guidance from someone who knows this platform and the various integrations that it offers.
Of course we don’t expect you to work for free and we will pay you for the support you provide in ensuring that the patrons who are a part of this project receive the best possible experience. This will also include helping us in properly integrating the discord server and making full use of the various features that it offers.

Right now we are majorly creating articles and as a result we won’t be able to present our patrons with a lot of options when it comes to the tiers, but as time passes, we will keep on adding more tiers and give our patrons better options and we would love suggestions from your end as well.

Here’s our priority list as we want to be completely transparent, as it’s your money that will be used to support the project and we want you to know how it’s going to be spent:

1. Improving and adding more features to the mobile app
The mobile app will be the heart of this project, as all the content will be published on the app and its web version. This is the base of the entire project and we need to make sure it works flawlessly as we will keep on adding more features.

2. Show and book inspired artwork
We will work on creating artworks right from the beginning. Artists can approach us for collaborations and the patrons will play an important role over here as they will help us in deciding the topics for the artworks and based on that we will commission them.

3. A detailed map of the world
4 Animated videos


The Crazy Idea!
We have another idea but we are not sure if it will be possible as it will require a lot of money. Fans of the show are signing petitions asking HBO to remake the latest season and to be frank; everyone knows that it’s never going to happen and even if we have any issue, we should respect the time and efforts by the cast and the crew. The best option is to make something of our own...what if we collaborate and make it happen on our own?!

We are thinking that we can initially work on creating a short 30-60 minute long animated video that will give us a brief idea about how the show could’ve ended (and even show Jon petting or hugging Ghost). For achieving that we will need to work with writers to make sure we have a good script, animators who will create the videos and if we are able to reach this level and get a good response, then we would love to go one step further and create a longer version with multiple episodes.

As we mentioned, it’s a crazy idea and not easy to achieve it but we really want to work on it.
We hope that you support our project and it's fine even if you are not satisfied with what we plan to achieve. You can return later and check the things that we have managed to achieve, and then take a decision if you feel like supporting us or not.

Thank you.

Frankly speaking we don't really have any specific reward to give for this tier. We have included it just in case someone likes what we are attempting to achieve and wants to make sure we achieve our targets. 


We agree that this might seem a bit unrealistic but there's no harm in hoping for the best.
