Cheers and welcome, my friends!


I’m Horath Drak and have been creating strategy and RPG let’s plays and tutorials on Youtube since 2015. I also stream on Twitch. Historical and sci-fi settings are what really get me going, but I won’t say no to a well-thought-out fantasy game either.

With the amazing support of my audience, some luck and a ton of hard work the channel has reached the point where it has become more than just a hobby. Since I absolutely love doing this, I’ve decided to pull the trigger on moving to become a full time content creator - I want to invest as much time into the channel and my community as possible!


What is Patreon and why am I here?


Patreon is a crowdfunding platform where the audience can support a creator directly by pledging a small monthly amount. By pledging they become a Patron. Patrons get rewards from the creator (see below).

Ad revenue is extremely volatile and since the introduction of Youtube’s monetization bot it is uncertain if a video will be allowed to serve any ads at all. By pledging to my Patreon you not only get some great rewards, but you'll also create a more reliable source of income for me that will help to cushion the wild fluctuations of Youtube’s ad revenue system and reduce my stress levels significantly, resulting in better content. As the Patreon grows I will be able to scale my day job back more and more, allowing me to invest the freed up time into the channel and to create more of the content that you guys like.

So if you do pledge: My heartfelt thanks! You are doing something amazing and I will not take that level of support for granted! Pledging on Patreon is completely voluntary and can be cancelled at any time. If you cannot or do not want to pledge: that is totally ok, I am still happy and grateful to have you as a part of my community. Content that has been free in the past will stay free - my Patreon is not a paywall.


Rewards


Apart from getting access to the VIP lounge of my Discord server & a special server role befitting your status as my generous Patron, you will get a say in how the channel is run and what kind of content appears on it, since every dollar pledged on Patreon represents the equivalent of thousands of ad-supported Youtube views.

All Patrons get to vote in “End Series XYZ?” polls that will allow me to see if a series that seems unpopular on Youtube because of a low view count is popular with my Patrons, which is important information for me when deciding where I invest my time and energy.

“Patreon’s Choice” is a monthly let’s play series where Patrons decide what I play. Every first week of the month Patrons in the “Priest” tier or higher can nominate what game they would like to see. In the second week Patrons in the “Acolyte” tier or higher can vote on the nominated games. Then I’ll record a minimum of five episodes and release the series on Youtube.

“Horath Teaches Patreon” is a monthly tutorial series where Patrons decide the tutorial topic. Every first week of the month Patrons in the “High Priest” tier or higher can nominate a topic for a tutorial video and in the second week Patrons in the “Acolyte” tier or higher can vote on the nominated topics. Then I’ll record and release the tutorial on Youtube.


Goals


The more of my bills get taken care of by my Patrons, the more I can scale back on my day job and the more time I’ll have to create content. That is why I added mainly goals that show how much of my monthly expenses the Patreon currently covers. Thanks so much for your support!


Feedback


If you have ideas for additional goals, rewards, new tiers, community events or other changes that you think will make this Patreon better for both of us then please let me know! Write me a message or leave a comment here on Patreon, tweet at me or shoot me an email. I am looking forward to making this as awesome as possible!


Thank you for taking the time to read this!
