About Encounter Library

My name is Matt or as most of you know me 'that guy who makes Foundry VTT tutorials'. Either distinction is fine. I'm a web developer for work and a DM for fun. I love playing DnD (well, running DnD is mostly what I wind up doing) and I'm always looking for ways to improve my game and make my life easier in terms of prep.

As a result I try an awful lot of tools, services, and story creation techniques to see what works and what doesn't. Any tool that I find that actually manages to make the game better or make my life easier is valuable and I try to do my part to guide new users through how to use them while providing the insight I gain from actually using the software and techniques that I'm talking about.

That's probably why you're here. You watched half a dozen videos where I go over DungeonDraft settings or watched me go piece by piece through Foundry VTT and instead of hating me, you wanted to say thank you. To that end I'm shocked, but mostly humbled and extremely appreciative.

So here's the deal: I make videos but I'm also working on a written presence for Encounter Library so anyone who struggles with videos or who wants a written reference has a place that they can access this content as well. On top of just being appreciated by me your Patreon money will go towards the server costs of hosting the site (though I will host the site regardless of whether or not anyone participates on Patreon).

On top of just a written presence the site will have additional functionality that I hope will make all of our lives easier but I'm not quite ready to discuss it yet. Of course, patrons would get the first taste of what that might look like. To give some kind of additional benefit to patrons I have begun recording my DnD sessions and I'm going to try and edit down some of the funny moments, some of the moments that are good examples of using Foundry's functionality, and share some of my maps, quest lines, and prep work that I do for my games.

I don't have a private Discord because I can't imagine that anyone would want to participate in it but hey, if y'all want that I can totally set one up. If anyone is interested I may also start streaming on Twitch prep work or just messing around with Foundry, DungeonDraft, LegendKeeper, WonderDraft etc. We can just hang out and talk about DnD, our games, and whatever else comes up.
