CVRPG is a 5-day-a-week web-comic. It's a parody of various video games and fantasy RPGs in general. The heroes are less than heroic, the adventures aren't always very adventurous, and the quests are only sometimes worthy -- but that's what makes it fun, right?

Pledging to the comic helps to keep me motivated and shows you care. I like motivation, and people seem to like caring about things, so it's a win-win in my book. Plus, you can make me do more work and watch me sweat. Isn't that fun?

CVRPG has a secret backlog. It's true! Contribute $10 and you'll get a month of free access to the backlog. Get ahead of everyone else and see where the adventure is going early. Backlog is being added to as we speak, and will soon have at least a month in advance of the public side at all times. (Reward includes written thanks.)

CVRPG has amusing little "Achievements" in its archive, fun images that look like actual video game achievements (as if CVRPG were a real video game). Contribute 20 bucks in a month and you can write the text for two new Achievements for any comics you want (that don't already have them). Be the first, pick the comics you want Achievements on before anyone else. (All comics are available on a first-come, first-served basis, and include side-arcs, bonus stories, and DSWC. No spamming, vulgarity, copyright infringement, or shame-less self-promotion allowed. Reward includes written thanks and access to the backlog.)

Help choose the next mini arc. I like CVRPG's "issues" that contain a certain amount of pages and for those pages to end at certain times of the week. To make that happen I have to space out the updates with mini-arcs and questions from the readers -- and those arcs and questions could come from you. Help me decide what the next arcs/questions should be. (Registration on the Clockwork Mansion forums is required so you can be part of the discussion of mini-arcs there. Reward includes written thanks and access to the backlog.)

Contribute guest commentaries. Right now, every comic on CVRPG has commentaries from me, but you could contribute commentaries as well. Contribute to this Patreon and I'll let you write 100 commentaries in a month for any comics you want (that don't already have guest commentaries on them). Be the first, pick the comics you want to comment on before anyone else. (All comics are available on a first-come, first-served basis, and include side-arcs, bonus stories, and DSWC. No spamming, vulgarity, or shame-less self-promotion allowed. Reward includes written thanks, access to the backlog, and input on future mini-arcs.)

I don't have ads on CVRPG -- I've never liked the look of them, and I hate cluttering up my site (except with links to my other projects which is less like "ads" and more like "shameless self-promotion"). That said, if you want to contribute $200 to my tip-jar, I'll place a link (with image) into a "supporters" area on the front page of my site. (Reward includes written thanks, access to the backlog, and input on future mini-arcs.)

Write a mini-arc for CVRPG. Yeah, you heard me: I'll let you write a script for a mini-arc of the comic (8 to 10 pages, depending on the space available). Have the heroes do what you want (within reason -- no spamming, vulgarity, copyright infringement, or shame-less self-promotion allowed) and I'll draw it up and publish it out. I'll also give you credit on those comics as the writer. (Some editorial control will be required to ensure the comics follow the normal CVRPG style. No copyrighted characters will be allowed, and any new characters contributed will become the property of CVRPG and its copyright holders. All written material will be the property of CVRPG and it's copyright holders. Reward includes written thanks, access to the backlog, and a supporter image.)

Write a mini-arc for CVRPG, in sprite form. CVRPG went hand-drawn as of strip #2408. However, for 2 grand I'll let you write a sprite-comic mini-arc for the series. Have the heroes do what you want (within reason -- no spamming, vulgarity, copyright infringement, or shame-less self-promotion allowed) in the past, and I'll publish it out. You can even resurrect Alec and Princess if you want. I'll also give you credit on those comics as the writer.

Goals
$27 of $250 per month
Right now I sometimes do a little stream of art of YouTube. It's off-and-on, weekly-ish when active, but if we get to 250 bucks I'll make it a permanent weekly stream (barring two vacation days a year) for as long as we're over this goal. As a bonus, I'll stream for at least four hours each time.
