d20 Despot is creating free open game content and RPG Worldbuilding Advice

per month
I write a weekly column on the world of d20 RPGs that offers GMing advice, reviews, gameplay stories, original monsters, and other Open Game content.  My Open Game content is made for Pathfinder/d20PFrpg games (easily adaptable to D&D 3.5), but my blog is broadly applicable to fantasy role-playing games in general.  Aside from the several hours I spend every week on the blogpost, I spend an awful lot of my free time experimenting with new classes and races, formulating new monster ideas, fleshing out my campaign worlds, and working on top secret projects.  I do it all because I would go mad if I didn't, but it certainly doesn't put food on the table (or a house around the table.  Basically, I only have a table).  

Your patronage would not only support my unhealthy habit of making free game content for people all the time, it would help me bring some of my bigger projects to fruition.  My goal for the future of d20 Despot is to start producing PDFs (and even physical books!) of my original content for sale, complete with high-quality artwork by my best friend, professional concept artist Kent Hamilton.  The level of Patreon support I get will give me an idea of potential demand for such projects - and of course I'd have to find some way to give my Patreon backers a discount!  I'd also like to record some of my gaming sessions and release them as podcasts; your patronage would help me afford proper audio equipment so the podcasts won't sound like ass.  

So if you've been reading my blog and found it helpful or entertaining, if you've used my original monsters or other content in your campaign, if you want to use my dungeons and adventures in your weekly game, please consider supporting me.

Those who can spare just a dollar per month will receive my eternal gratitude, and also a sword!*

*not a real sword - the stats for a new type of sword that you can use in your games.  Note also, all other rewards tiers still get the sword.

Monster
For $5 per month, you will get a new monster every Monday.  You will always get access to these monsters a month before the general public does.
Pledge $8 or more per month
2 patrons
Boss Monster
At the $8 level, you will get to vote on what the final monster of the month will be.  I will provide three or more options with short descriptions for patrons to vote on.

Player Character
For $12 you will gain access to my monthly Playtest Document.  This is a PDF containing all the Open Game content I have worked on that month, from rules variations to monsters to new spells, items, and feats, to playable races and classes.  Some of these things will be ready to play, some of them will still be under construction.  Each month's Playtest Document will be posted at the end of the month, and readers will be sworn to secrecy by either an ancient blood pact or a standard non-disclosure agreement.
Pledge $15 or more per month
1 patron
Game Master
At the $15 level, you can tell me about a monster, spell, or magic item that you want me to stat up and I will do it for you!  Since this is sort of a one-time thing, you will also get an ongoing reward - your monthly monster vote will count double!
Goals
$33 of $50 per month
If this lofty goal is met, I will be able to afford the microphones and audio equipment necessary to start recording, editing, and uploading podcasts of my games for you all to listen to absolutely free.  Listening to RPG podcasts is not only fun, but a great way to pick up ideas for your own games, or introduce the uninitiated into the world of tabletop RPGs.
