Greetings adventurers!

Thank you so much for taking time to visit the Drunks and Dragons Patreon page. We have had the pleasure of creating our 5th Edition D&D actual play podcast for over five years now, and while we absolutely love creating it, we could use your help.


The cast of Drunks and Dragons includes Nika Howard (Nika_Howard), Jennifer Cheek (jennifercheek), Tim Lanning (timlanning), Mike Bachmann (themikebachmann), and your Dungeon Master: Michael DiMauro (thriftynerd).

There are very real costs associated with keeping our podcast going. We need to pay for everything from server space to new equipment to a seemingly endless supply of Bud Light Lime Raz-Ber-Ritas for Mike Bachmann.

We also love finding fun ways to give back to our listeners, so if you scroll down you will find all kinds of wonderful rewards. We have rewards for any budget, and every little bit helps. There are plenty of cool things like exclusive content and opportunities to join us for some D&D.

Fresh content every Thursday!

That's the goal!

We are always mixing things up and trying to find new ways to make being a patron a worthwhile endeavor. Our current vision is to deliver fresh and exclusive content to you every Thursday. To do this will take a pretty big effort, so we have worked it into our goals section. 

1st Thursday - (unlocked) - Editing Tales - In this video series, Master Editor David Stewart takes you on a journey as he explains the subtle science and exact art of podcast editing.

2nd Thursday - (unlocked) - The Conductors' Seat - Join Tim Lanning and special guest Michael DiMauro as they discuss the art of Dungeon Mastering. Patrons can submit questions and join the live stream.

3rd Thursday - (unlocked) - Blooper Reel - Did you know that there is stuff that is actually too silly, weird, or inappropriate to make it into our finished podcasts? We didn't either! Now you can experience these "bloopers" first hand in our monthly series.

4th Thursday - $5,000 - New Series! If we can get to this milestone, we will produce a new monthly series exclusive to patreon! We are still kicking around ideas, but we are thinking a series of mini-series exploring all sorts of different stuff. The first will be a 10 to 12 episode series set in Mastwick under the rule of Pyre. Michael will run this canonical game set in Drunkeros, and will be joined by Nika, Tim, and Bachmann. After that, who knows?? We will likely have rotating GMs playing whatever game tickles our fancy at that moment. 

What about the months with 5 Thursdays you say?? If we can get this going, we will definitely make sure we do something special in March, May, August, and November!

Thank you again for checking out our page, and we hope you consider becoming our patron.

Rumors say that you are strong and wise enough to tread where heroes once spilled their blood, sweat and tears. You will be the owner of our very first PDF adventure based on the Drunks and Dragons rich story and characters. You will most assuredly run into a calvacade of misfits and rogues as you run your gaming group through our first (of many, we hope) Adventure Module. 

Drunks and Dragons Podcast 5th Edition D&D adventure – The Mental Mystery in Mastwick.

Uthgar above must have a sick sense of humor if those lowlifes, The Darkblades, are our only hope…If the rumors are true the Grey Lady will have her revenge upon this entire stinking city.

You are a paragon among your peers. The greatest heroes of the land have mentioned your name and have recounted tales of your valor. You will be a member of a select group who gets to play an ongoing canonical 5e game DMed by Thrifty and at least one member of the Drunks and Dragons podcast, which will be released on the Random Encounters feed every month. A small tactical strike will be most effective against the organized forces of evil, so this tier is limited to only 4 adventurers.

Since this tier became available again, we have been trying to work out an appropriate reward. The unique Demonomicon was a labor of love, but we think it needs to stay unique. We will post a new idea soon!
Goals
$4,126 of $5,000 per month
At this level, we will create an entirely new show using core members of the cast.

For the first arc, we will experience life in dragon-occupied Mastwick through the eyes of a group of level 1 characters. It will be a D&D 5e adventure run by Michael, and played by Tim Lanning, Nika Howard, Mike Bachmann, and a special guest to round out the crew.

This series will be exclusive to patrons at the $5 and above tiers, will be released at least monthly, and run around 10 to 12 episodes.

After exploring the People's Republic of Mastwick, another DnD cast member will take the reigns, and the sky is the limit. We may switch settings, or games, but the core cast will remain the same.
