Hey Jorphdan, how can I help?Become a patron! If you’re here you probably know the type of videos I make and you’re looking to donate. Check out the rewards to the right and pick a subscription level!
Why is the PH silent?
Because my name is pronounced Jordan, with a silent PH in the middle. #Shrug
What exactly do you do?I make Lore videos about the Dungeons and Dragons universe. I started my YouTube channel because I went searching for similar videos and couldn’t find what I was looking for. I figured if I’m interested in this mythology there must be others.
So I started Forgotten Realms Explained under the channel Jorphdan. You can check out my videos here. I try to keep them short, informative, and entertaining. I’ll freely admit I haven’t got it all figured out and I’m no expert, but I love diving in and creating content.
I also run a DnD Talk show called the "Saturday Morning D&D Show" which we stream live on twitch Saturday Mornings at 9:00am Pacific. This has been a fun side project which has recently moved to its own YouTube channel. You can check out those episodes here.
What do I get outta this?In addition to helping the channel grow I have a monthly podcast exclusive for patrons where I talk with friends and patrons about their D&D experiences.
If you’re a fan of the channel you’ll be able to vote on upcoming topics and talk directly with me on videos you’d like to see.
Where does the money go?Back into the channel. The amount of ad revenue from YouTube is comically low for a channel of my size. Patreon money will go towards lights,recording equipment, Dungeons and Dragons PDFs for research, and editing software. Basically keep me from losing money on this hobby channel.
With enough support I may be able to do multiple videos per week. Perhaps even record some of my D&D sessions.
