Failure is an option?

Hello friend. My chosen nom-de-guerre is Colonel Failure and like many who have come before I am engaged in the field of recording videos of my gameplaying antics which, subsequently, are uploaded to the internet in the hope of rendering entertainment.

As much as this name has a tedious backstory it is particularly apt since the aforementioned videos are in equal part inspiring and calamitous. Delivered with muttered commentary, self deprecation and no small amount of resignation to things going wrong I'll lead you through my adventures in a manner sure to have you quietly despairing (in a good way) at whatever portal through which you choose to watch my progress.

But then, you knew this already, otherwise you wouldn't be here.

Bad Company

Patrons of Colonel Failure are part of Bad Company. This will give you more opportunity to give your feedback, get involved in new series, be cast as a character, chat about games or otherwise be a part of the video work of the Colonel. Bad Company members with the rank of Sergeant or higher will also receive extra videos each month with extra behind the scenes information, new games and other special features.

As Bad Company grows, so will the rewards.

Do you always talk so much?

That is the point. If your proclivity is towards uncouth young folk alternately screeching and cursing at graphically exploding body parts before assaulting your ear drums with some form of random tuneless nonsense I may not be quite to your taste. For one, The Colonel Keeps It Clean. One need not display their extensive knowledge of Anglo Saxon linguistic derivations to have a good time; on the odd occasion when surprise strikes and expletives fall from my mouth I employ bleeping. Bleeping is funny.

I also enjoy having a vocabulary.

So, what do you play?

I build. Transport networks, medieval towns, futuristic factories, ancient monuments, modern cities, business empires in more or less any game that gives me the freedom to conquer strange new lands with haphazard, hair-brained constructions.

Occasionally I may reveal something useful or inspire you to replicate my projects more effectively, and providing you enjoy the results my work is done. 

What's in it for me?

Well I'm not going to pretend that my continued video escapades hinge on your throwing a few doubloons my way, as that's pretty much a certainty whether you chip in or not. However I have a few tantilising opportunities for you in different pledge buckets, some of which may be more tempting than others. 

Even if none of them appeal, I will be jolly grateful and see any coinage you fling into my optimistically upturned hat as an endorsement for More Of This Kind Of Thing.

Right, where's my wallet?

That's the spirit!

Cheerio!

Check you out with your flamboyant use of currency! 20 bucks is a big deal, and so are you my friend. 


In addition to all previous tier rewards you also gain access to  Colonel School. Each month I will add a new lesson in how I went from zero to where I am now in terms of YouTube subscribers. This course will be in depth and will include examples of how I would do things differently in the future to grow further and faster. 


This will be of interest to those running their own channels on YouTube or Twitch, but may also prove insightful for those who want to learn a bit more about the nuts and bolts of online video. One Colonel School member each month will have their YouTube channel listed in the "Occasional Conscripts" list on the front of the Colonel Failure channel.

Includes Discord rewards

Look, you're not Robert Redford and I'm not Demi Moore. Unless you are actually Robert Redford, in which case I'll do my best. Anyway, we're not making that kind of deal here, but I'm pretty sure you ticked this option because you have something in mind, in which case let's have a conversation. 

This level of support makes you a Channel Sponsor, you'll get a credit in each video produced during your tenure and I'll link to whatever gizmo, widget or flange you're attempting to flog to an unsuspecting public. My integrity has a price. That price is 5 grand a month.

Goals
$1,500 – reached! per month
Time to up the tempo. Achieving this level will indicate that it is time to stop messing around and start to focus on going full time. This is not the "Let's go full time" level, this is the "take this more seriously and push to go full time" level.
