Essential NPCs is creating an Actual Play Podcast for Various RPG systems

patrons

$133
per month
We create a weekly podcast sampling some of the best, and occasionally, some of the worst, tabletop RPGs. 

We felt we could fill the niche of narrative-centric, edited live-play RPG sessions of a variety of different game systems. And also give our opinions, tips and tricks, in the hopes of helping our listeners find a system they love, and help them start their own games.

And doing all of that brings us so much joy, and we love doing it. We love doing it so much that we want to bring our listeners more content.

But we've reached a threshold of sorts, with podcast hosting, website costs, owning our domain name, equipment, advertising, stuff for give aways, and the time that we dedicate every week to bringing our listeners high value content, we've spent all the cash that we can.

So when a few of our loyal listeners reached out and asked how they could support us (by more than tuning in every week), we found Patreon. 

Through you (our listeners) support and patronage, we will be able to bring more and better quality entertainment. And we're so excited at the prospect of being able to do just that. 

So if you already listen and love us, please consider becoming one of our patrons, and if you haven't checked us out, please do. 

Whether you're able to give or not, know that we love and appreciate you guys so much. And no matter what you'll hear from us every Tuesday, bringing you the best we have to offer.
