About

What is Better Legends?
Better Legends is an ongoing art project, the purpose being to build a world, one interesting character at a time. Every week I stream live on Twitch illustrating Adventurers, NPC's and Monsters. The characters are designed to be system-fluid, meaning you can use them in most 6 stat fantasy RPGs with a little bit of tweaking. All of this information comfortably fits on a single page, and is meant to be easy to use at the gaming table.

What's it gonna look like?



Why are you doing this?
I love designing characters and monsters! Patreon is the best way that I can make work that excites me and easily distribute it to anyone that wants it. I'm able to provide content free, with the option for those that can to help support me.

Why do I need this?
Planning a game is a lot of work, anyone who takes the time to do it knows this. Better Legends is here to help facilitate your creativity and lend you the visual aids and character prompts that you need to make your game POP. The characters that interact with your players are the heart and soul of your world. They’re how you speak to the group, and are one of the largest and most memorable part of the world you build. My goal is to make characters that are imaginative, relatable, diverse and engaging for you and your players.

How does it work?

This project is free for everyone who wants to see and use it, if you wish to become a patron and support me as well, that's great! Currently I'm making 4 NPC's, and a couple of monsters every month! I do the brunt of the sketching and development for this project live on Twitch.
Current Schedule:
Monday Morning: Monster Drawing! 
Friday Morning: NPC/Adventurer Drawing!


How do you choose what characters to draw?
I made a random table! It gives me some pretty fun prompts, and then I build the character out from there. I'm currently drawing and expanding upon the monsters I draw from the world's most popular fantasy roleplaying game.



Didn't this Patreon used to be different?
Yep! My first Patreon endeavor was called the Super Poster Club!! I found while doing that project I wanted to make something that was more specifically useful for people at their game tables, so this project was born! You can find all the posters I made for the poster club in my print shop and in the backlogs of this Patreon, enjoy!
Legal Stuff
All of the art created for this Patreon is owned solely by Sam Mameli. It is meant for personal use only and may not be used for published content. All character content is copy edited by Kari Aldrich, so you don't have to see my glaring spelling errors or syntaxical foibles.
Goals
$151 of $600 per month
When I reach this goal I'll be able to pay my share of the rent with this Patreon! Neat! That means that I'll make more stuff because I'll have to take on less freelance projects per month!
