Hidden below the archives of the arcane sanctum, down the winding stairwell, through the cobwebbed corridors, a lonely lich resides, forgotten by time until now. It speaks of ancient proverbs, vile wisdom, and benevolent rants. It promises death for those willing to heed his words and exercise his schemes. Welcome, brave scholar, for you shall learn how one suffers death by a mage. 

Greetings and salutations! 

I am Jacky Leung, better known as Death by Mage on the Interwebs. I'm an overdramatic wizard with a flair of the fantastical. I am a best-selling freelance RPG writer and editor. I'm also an RPG Journalist in my spare time, providing updates when I can on the industry regarding new releases and product reviews. I'm also a Twitch creative, and you can find me making appearances on SoulbearRPG, DumpStatCharisma, and Welcome to the Party's RPG Twitch channels as a guest player.

Mage's RPG Workshop
Once or twice a week, I will be streaming on Twitch that covers RPG design. From my design process and philosophies to teaching about other RPG systems, how to design for them, and what it takes to become an RPG designer. Most streams will average anywhere from 1 1/2 hours to 2 hours long. Make sure to follow me on Twitter to get schedule updates. I will also occasionally host a few casual streams that will serve as a sort of Talk Show while I play some video games. Your support helps me manage and improve equipment and any necessary software. 

Where can you find me?
You can find me on the Internet: 

Why Patreon?
Patreon is an excellent way for me to connect with the community with my creativity, and it allows me to create games for others to enjoy. But it takes time, software, and resources to make these games happen. Your support will enable me to continue to freely create content that interests you, and help me continue to be a freelance RPG writer. Most importantly, I also want to empower others to write/sell RPG content, be better gamemasters and storytellers. 

Can't support my Patreon?
No problem! I understand, money is tight for many of us. I still appreciate your support. If you cannot do a monthly subscription, you can support me on Ko-fi here. Funds placed in my Ko-fi will help fund for artwork for future projects. 
17 of 40 patrons
When I reach 40 patrons, I will create quarterly RPG e-zines as digital PDFs for you. Many of these will be ideas or concepts that I either wrote but never fully developed, or be indie games I've written with improvements or redesigned layouts. This reward will be given out to only Death by Fireball ($5+) tiers and above.
