About

Hey there, crew!  Brandon here!

I'm gonna be real with you.  I really, really love tabletop role-playing games.  I love them enough that I've hit a point that I'm now spending pretty much every spare moment in my life working on them or things related to them.  That's fantastic and I love doing that.

I'm going to keep doing this work.  This work matters to me.  It matters to me as a Latino game designer to see more Latinxs and POCs in the hobby.  It matters to me to see more stories being told.  It matters to me that we can have heroes of a thousand stripes.  So I'm going to keep doing this.

What's in question ends up coming to how much.  I'm currently in an economic situation that I need to find additional work beyond what I'm doing to make ends meet for my family.  This Patreon is my attempt to make that additional work doing what I love and providing what I can for a community that's been good to me.

So, what might you know me from?  I'm the author of Pasión de las Pasiones, a tabletop role-playing game designed to bring the beauty and love of telenovelas to everyone's table.  I'm one of the creators of the Stop, Hack, & Roll Network and a host of the game design podcast Stop, Hack, & Roll and a GM/player at the Masks actual play podcast Protean City Comics.  I'm also the host/GM of the All Latinx Masks actual play stream LatinXplosion.  And last, but hopefully not least, I'm starting into making short form YouTube videos discussing indie tabletop role-playing games and the industry.  I also do work to uplift other marginalized games-folks.  And sometimes I make really long, angry twitter threads.

This Patreon will support me continuing to create as much content as possible in the tabletop role-playing game space.  Your support could make that happen!  I'll appreciate the hell out of it and honestly, I'll make better cooler stuff when I'm less stressed about my financial future.

So what am I working on right now?

*#RADCrawl!  A Roguelike Arena Dungeon Crawl, an Expandable Card Based Quick-Play Game of Legacy Dungeon Crawling Powered by the Apocalypse!  If that sounds like a lot, it probably is!  It's my aim to capture everything I love about Dungeon & Dragons 3.5 (splat books, awesome magic items, adventure), PbtA games (the conversation, capturing genre and mood with moves, mechanics that fit structure), and Roguelite/Legacy games (starting new characters, playing them, and adding new advantages next time you play)!  All that combined with keeping games short, tight, and punchy!
*Masks Playbooks including The Corsair (a space pirate captain on the lines of Starlord and... well... Corsair), The Public Face (basically just Roberto Da Costa in U.S.Avengers), and The Warrior (Drax, Hercules, and others!)

By backing this Patreon at ANY level you get RADCrawl as it's being worked on!  At levels beyond the starting $2/month level, you get to put content into the game!  And ALL Patrons will get access to an exclusive 'Print At Cost' coupon for content suggested by patrons up to the launch of RADCrawl.  

Not to mention that you're supporting my other design, videos, and work to bring more inclusion to the indie ttrpg industry!

Thanks for reading and until next time, keep being a force for good in a world that hates and fears you.
Goals
$79 of $100 per month
If I hit $100 a month, it'll be the absolute pinnacle of my status as a game designer.

I want to do something if I hit this level, but I'm not sure what yet.  I'll be reaching out to patrons in the next weeks to work exactly what that should be!
