How Does This Patreon Work?
Being a patron means you get first access to my Short-form Adventures (usually made for Dungeon World.) Often, they're not posted anywhere else. When they are, I like to post patreon-exclusive bonus extras, like discount codes and other fun stuff.
What is a "Short-form Adventure"?
My good friend and RPG author David Schirduan had this to say about my adventures, which I think hits the spot:
"Joe’s adventures are somewhere between Dungeon Starters and a full cinematic adventure. His adventures provide goals for the players to choose from, a basic map or location, NPCs, and one or two set pieces. His initial setups are detailed, but rarely feature an ending. Once the adventure hits the table, anything might happen.
The secret is different factions get their own motivations and are then set loose in the world. It’s up to the GM and the players to discover what happens and how situations resolve. These adventures are great for GMs who like organic and spontaneous play."
Is there a Setting Guide?
No, but don't panic! Most of my Dungeon World adventures are set in the same the same fantasy world, one I've been developing off and on for several years. You'll see names like Mirkasa, Chalcedon, and Umberto crop up often. For those who want all the juicy details, I recommend grabbing my books on DriveThruRPG. But don't worry - every one of my adventures is designed as a stand-alone product, ready to use with Dungeon World (or, with a little editing, another fantasy RPG of your choice.)
Can I translate/use this stuff for my own projects?
Yes, but only the text. Unless noted otherwise, the text of my Patreon releases is released under a CC-BY-SA licence. That means you can copy, remix, translate or modify the text, for personal or commercial use.
If you do release it commercially, you must provide attribution (“Original text by Joe Banner”) and your release must be under the same or similar license as the original work.
The design and layout of my books are copyright to me, so you'll have to design your own product. Alternatively, you can hire me for your own design projects!
Anything Else I should know?
Yes - if you're already supporting me, or you've supported me in the past, thank you. Every little helps, and I love to hear from my Patreon patrons past and present.
