I've been gaming for over 35 years, mostly as a DM for various editions of D&D. I've been active in the OSR community since 2009 and my OSR News series was popular and well regarded for the several years in which it ran on my blogs. I've recently resurrected my blog and with it, the OSR News. After suggestions from some of my readers, I decided to start this Patreon to offset the intensive time investment which the OSR News demands. A typical News post takes 7-10 hours to put together, depending upon the activity level of the community. I expect this time commitment to increase, as my plans for the News and related material are realized. I'm also planning a YouTube channel devoted to gaming, the OSR, reviews, etc. Meanwhile, you can read The OSR News at my blog, Dreams of Mythic Fantasy.
