Who are you?
Hi everyone! My name is John Sullivan, though you know me as Sully by now. I am the dungeon master and host of the podcast How Friends Roll, a D&D 5e actual-play podcast. I am also the producer, editor, writer, streamer, (now video-producer after making that video up there... shakes fist at iMovie)... I wear a lot of hats. More on this later. HFR has been my side project for, at time of writing, almost two years. I truly enjoy creating it, and want to improve it, which is why we are here.

Why are you on Patreon?
Well there's two goals here: first, the show becomes self-sufficient. I've invested a decent amount in recording equipment, music, and artwork for the show, up front, and then on top of that I pay the hosting fees to keep episodes regularly available. So, the initial goal is to break even and recover that investment. The next goal is to make modest improvements to the quality of the show itself, which will be bound only by the number of patrons and size of pledges. Some easy wins:
  • Quality microphones for every player (the dream! no more crappy background audio to edit out)
  • Unique variations on my theme for every future arc
  • Artwork / illustrations of the characters and locations they visit
I have larger material goals, and more specific big-picture goals for the show as well, but let's start small!

How can I support you?
Good news, you're already in the right place. On this page you will be able to select a tier of pledge and support the show on a per-creation basis. You can expect an average of 4 posts / month when an arc is active, and ~1 post/month when an arc is in development (which, as a Patron, you will be involved in!). Also, keep in mind, you can specify a monthly maximum contribution amount to make sure that your contribution stays within your budget.

Thank You
I hope you consider supporting the show. A lot of time and effort goes in to bringing a quality product to your feeds. Become a part of the HFR community and help improve the show!
