  • Your names at the end of future videos! (make sure your name listed here is what you want in the credits)

About DrakGamestein

Hello! My name is Drak and welcome to my channel! I make YouTube videos featuring my friends and I undertaking the raids in Final Fantasy XIV. Sometimes we win. Most of the time we die. But at the end of the day, we're having a good time together regardless, and that's what I like to focus on.

Over the past four years, I've been continuing this as my main focus career-wise thanks to the unending generosity of those who have watched my videos, my streams, and supported me here on Patreon. Because of them, I've been able to be financially stable with content creation as my only source of income and even compensate the others I bring in to help me work on various aspects of these videos. Because of them, I've been pushing to keep giving the best I've got and keep them laughing, groaning, or just generally entertained. This has become an actual dream job and I'm forever grateful to the people who have supported me selflessly, encouraged me patiently, and begged for me to stay healthy even if it meant taking a little longer to get content out.

To all of those people, again and again, thank you.

Now, that doesn't mean I'll be resting on my laurels here. If you decide to support me as well, I'll be putting those resources to good use as I have been up until this point. I don't know what the future holds, but the general idea would be to bring more people on to get videos out faster, in greater quantity, without compromising the quality. It would also potentially go towards a studio space where future hires could physically come into (which would help a lot because transferring raw video files over DropBox is... inefficient).

I've found myself in dark places emotionally and mentally before, and comedy always helped keep my head above water. Over and over I get messages telling me that I've done the same for others, and while I don't think we've done anything quite so noble, I still want to endeavor to keep people smiling. Of course, I also really just like having people laugh at my jokes, so that's a bonus.

So thanks for checking out the page!  I hope to see you here, in the YouTube (DrakGamestein) comments, or the Twitch (/drakanous) chat in the future. It doesn't matter in what way you support, but every little bit is appreciated. God bless, and I hope you have a good one.
Goals
$4,000 – reached! per month
With this, I'd like to bring on our artist (Archie aka SuperSpuddles) full time!  We've been able to deal out modest compensation so far, but in time it won't be enough. Eventually they will have to look elsewhere for full-time financial support which means less time on this channel where they've become a regular name.  I'll be coming up with ways to make it worth your while, but know that your generosity doesn't just support me, but individuals who help bring my channel, our videos, and even our live streams to life.
