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!

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.

$15 or more per month (sold out!)

With all of these videos, I've got some flexibility of what I cover in them.  If you'd like to claim some of that flexibility, you can!


Alternately, it may be you don't care about my videos!  If that's the case, I'll instead write you a PbtA style move! Just let me know what you want it to do!


At this level, you get access to patron polls, thanks in non-contract games I make, are thanked in videos occasionally (honestly, probably even more than those previous tiers), you get access to my Google Drive work folder for non-contract game design, video plotting, Trello access, AND you get to decide the topic of one of my videos each month.

Brought to You By
$50 or more per month

Have something you'd like plugged in all of my videos?  Back at this tier.  


This tier especially is subject to change as number of followers grow.  I reserve the right to not plug things that are racist, sexist, hateful, or otherwise horrific.


If you would like to also get other options from the list, just pledge the amount above the $50 and/or get in touch with me!

I'll Write You A Game
$15,000 or more per month

I'm not even kidding.  I'll freaking do it.


But for real, if you'd like to hire me to do some writing work, get in touch with me.  I'm working out my pricing (it's way more reasonable than this), but I am available to do game writing!

Goals
$87 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!
