Gallant Knight Games is a tabletop gaming company dedicated to high-quality roleplaying games and card and board games founded by lead designer Alan Bahr.

Alan is the owner/operator of Gallant Knight Games and a game designer best known for the TinyD6 line of games, along with other games such as Cold Shadows, For Coin & Blood, Planet Mercenary, Gallant Pocket Games, and many more.

He’s an avid fan of Noir films, Arthurian mythos, smooth jazz, clever role-playing games, and his amazing wife.


Alan here. Enough with that marketing speak. I don't really talk like that. Let's be honest, running a game company is hard, especially when it's the sole source of income you contribute to your family's finances.

We’ve been successful on Kickstarter (over ten projects to our name, all but one delivered on time), but Kickstarter comes in spurts, and the paydays from Kickstarter projects can be few and far between. A lot of the time (ok, all of the time) a little income in-between can make the difference between a new release that month, or me going out and moonlighting to make sure ends meet and no one in my family has to step up and carry my weight.

However, I love making games, and I love doing it full time. I can be prolific (we released 8 games, not counting supplements on DriveThruRPG), but I am only as prolific as time allows.
I'd like to do this full-time with more security, so here we are, on Patreon, trying it out.

At Gallant Knight Games, one of my guiding principles has been keeping it simple so we can do it right (a lesson sometimes learned the hard way.) So, this Patreon is pretty simple. There are three pledge levels:

  • $1 which grants you an unique role in the GKG Discord, and access to a private Discord channel for GKG patrons.
  • $5 which grants you access to varying free content on a monthly basis, at minimum a monthly copy of TinyZine! This includes playtest materials, previews of up-coming products, and more.
  • $10 which grants you access to sneak peeks of upcoming Kickstarters, design notes, and blogs from Alan, a monthly TinyZine and at least, a twice a year micro-RPG from Alan (you'll get the PDF for free, and an at-cost print on demand code if we do a print through DriveThruRPG.) And, starting in 2019, a yearly Patreon unique set of TinyD6 dice (three six-sided dice), mailed to you free of charge!

At various times, patrons will get chances to play in a one-off (digitally of course, unless we're all at the same con). Additionally, there will be a Patreon free RPG (probably a TinyD6 game) released yearly. All Backers will get this game in addition to any other games their patronage grants them. 

These pledge levels are subject to some small level of flexibility from month to month in what will come out for them, but as always, I try to deliver as much as I can for your money. (Also, you will get tons of cute pictures of my two puppies, I'll be honest, which is priceless.)

Regardless, you might want to know how we intend to use the money raised here in the Patreon? That's a fair question, and one we're happy to answer. 

  • First, money will go towards increasing the amount of content in the TinyZine! New art, more writing (including up and coming industry writers, guest submissions), maps, micro-settings, and more!
  • Secondly, money will go towards funding future GKG projects. This can include spec art to test out new artists, advance editing, research and development, and lots more.
  • Third, it'll go to various business expenses, like con travel, marketing, business expenses, and other such sundries. 

Thanks for taking the time to read this far. It's appreciated, and I hope you'll find your way into the GKG family!
