So you’ve found my Patreon. What’s here, you wonder?

Answer:
A little bit of everything.

Hi, I’m Erik Scott de Bie, writer, game designer, and all-around professional geek. I'm probably best known for my five Forgotten Realms novels, as well as my other contributions to the SFF genre and Dungeons & Dragons. I am a creative of diverse interests and talents.

What can you expect, as one of my Patrons?

  • Short stories written just for my Patrons? I’ve got those.
  • Previews and exclusive sneak peeks at in-progress works? Yep, those too.
  • A progressive chapter-a-month novel delivered straight to your email? You bet.
  • Special bonuses and backer perks for upcoming Kickstarters? Heck yeah.
  • Access to play-by-post games and chances to hang out on Discord, other social media, or in-person at events? Sure thing!

I’m not just a writer or designer, either. I’ve worked in the gaming industry most of my adult life, and I’ve been a Gamemaster since I was in sixth grade. I’ve played everything from D&D and Pathfinder to Star Wars and Shadowrun to Cypher and Cortex to Legend of the Five Rings and World of Darkness. I’ve amassed twenty-five years of experience with planning, running, and mediating games.

I plan to do a video series of gaming advice, with an emphasis on appealing to players and handling interplayer problems, as well as things like worldbuilding and improvisational GMing, which is my specialty. (And occasionally I might talk or post about video games, too!)

What I offer here won’t necessarily be consistent month to month, but I guarantee it’ll be something interesting! I have a lot of ideas to share, and I hope this will give me the space to do that.

Thank you so much for supporting me, and I look forward to making magic together.
