About TsukikageRyu & Eris

NOTE: This Patreon page is on hiatus for the month of June 2021. There is no planned content for this June, and a major rework is planned for the start of July. Read this post for more information. 

Hello! Ryu here to say thanks for your interest in supporting Age of Adepts and its translation/editorial team, Eris and TsukikageRyu.

If you're not one of our normal readers and found us out of the blue, then let me tell you a little about what we do around here. And if you'd like to check out the free chapters of the series already available to everyone, head over to our official Age of Adepts page. We currently produce 7 free chapters per week there.

Age of Adepts is a Chinese dark fantasy novel that we are currently creating English translations of on Gravity Tales. As this is now 100% freelance (we receive no funding from GT for this work), we are looking to you, the readers, to help us in being able to continue working on this story for you.

Both Eris and I have busy lives. Eris is a full-time college student, and I (Ryu) already work a full-time and part-time job in addition to my editorial work on Age of Adepts. We love working on the series and have enjoyed the experience since we came on board in January of 2018. However, since we are no longer funded through GT since November 2018, we cannot invest the time needed to produce new chapters without the support of our dedicated readers.

First and foremost, we'd like to make it clear that your contributions through Patreon are to help support Eris and me so that we can even afford to devote the time to the continuation of this series. We will, as is common, offer Advance Chapters of the series in some of the reward tiers as a way to say thank you for those who help make it possible for us to keep working on AoA, but those are mainly just a thank you gift. Because we have to prioritize making enough through Patreon to even keep working on the series, some of the chapter to dollar ratios might seem out of sync. Our hope is that if the Patreon picks up and more people help support us, that we can offer more chapters per tier or reduce tier prices. Once we're making more than our minimum goals, we hope to increase the kinds of content we can deliver, as well as improve the series by being able to spend more time investing in it. 

What is Patreon?

Patreon is a site which lets users make a monthly subscription to a specific product. In our case, it would be privileged rights to early releases of the chapters, exclusive content for Patrons, and other rewards like creating your own ability, character, etc within the story.
Do I need to pledge to read Age of Adepts?
No. It is completely optional, and only meant as a way to show your support to us and the story. The chapters of Age of Adepts will always be free and open for all to read. The pledges are just a way to offer support for the translator and editor so that they can continue to bring this series to readers everywhere.
Can I change my pledge amount?
Yes, you can. Just go to the top right of the page and once you hover near your profile picture, you will see a list of options. Just click on “Your Pledges” and you should be able to see all your active pledges and make changes/edits to it.

How does Patreon charge me?

Patreon accepts two forms of payment: PayPal and credit card. You can add your paypal account to Patreon, or if you don’t have one, then simply add your credit card. Please make sure that your given payment account has the funds, not expired, etc, otherwise the pledge will be automatically declined by Patreon.
You will be charged as soon as you pledge to Patreon now, as well as at the start of each month. As a result, please bear in mind that you may be charged twice if you pledge towards the end of the month: the first time because you have just pledged, and the second time because a new month starts soon. We have to charge in the full from the start of a pledge because we offer all advance chapters the very moment you pledge. As such, please take this into consideration when subscribing near the end of the month, as you will pay a full month at that time, regardless of how close to the end of the current month, and will also be charged in full on the 1st of the following month for the next month's content.

AoA Lives!
At this point, Eris and I are making enough to keep working on the series and maintain a 7 chapter per week schedule.
