Thank You! It is hard to convey how much it means that you're here and considering supporting me. You are a star. Every day I can't start without my fresh morning-joe and this enough to get things rolling. This level is for anyone that wants to help get things rolling with a delicious hot cup of coffee, join the community, and have access to the extended content.

Includes:
  • A big thank you!
  • World Anvil all-access backstage pass (unlock all the extended content)
  • Discord special access to player & patron channels on our Discord Server with a custom Caffeinator color
  • Occasional Patreon posts (don't many posts as 99.9% of my published stuff will be on World Anvil) but there may be stuff like scans of my research notebooks for insights into backstories, physics, world-building items, patron requested details, and updates.

You made your perception check. There is little difference between the Caffeinator levels. I don't want money to be a barrier to enjoying the stories and gaming content. I leave it to you to decide what my work is worth and how much you can afford. I'm truly honored and thankful for any amount of support.
Includes Discord benefits

Thank You! At this level, you get the same benefits as the Caffeinator Light, but you will feel fantastic and the content will magically better because you know you're a supporter! This level is for those who want the extended content but, being fellow caffeineaholics, also want to give a little more. Your full-bodied caffeinated shot of that delicious magic dark java juice will help get my heart pumping and fingers flying!

You made your perception check. This level is enhanced with podcast access and in-video recognition, otherwise, there is little difference between the Caffeinator levels. I don't want money to be a barrier to enjoying the stories and gaming content. I leave it to you to decide what my work is worth and how much you can afford. I'm truly honored and thankful for any amount of support.

About LArtra

Hi. I'm super pleased you've stopped by. I'm guessing you want to know a little bit about me, but not too much at once. To start, I've been running tabletop fantasy RPGs for over 40 years in the same ever-expanding set of worlds. I used those worlds to write two bestselling fantasy/sci-fi series. Now I share my gaming with you in D&D 5e video streams, publish all the supplemental details on World Anvil for your usage, and continue to write more novels in my worlds which I also publish to World Anvil for patrons to get early access to.

My mission is to create podcasting and live streaming D&D 5e games, fantasy world-building, and fiction-writing discussions to build and test the worlds of Niya-Yur and Terra for use in his novels and as RPG supplemental materials for gaming enthusiasts everywhere.

If you like steampunk, fantasy, and science fiction mixed together (in varying amounts) in your reading, listening, viewing, and/or RPG games you've come to the right place. My goal is to provide you a great source of fantasy, science fiction, and steampunk content for your writing or gaming pleasure. I'm constantly adding new NPCs, tweaked homebrew rules, maps, locations, and stories to my worlds. You will be able to download the maps and use the stories or NPCs live from my World Anvil site. I even add in dice rolling charts, live dice rolling buttons, and other content to make it easier for you and me to use the content in our games.

I run a weekly D&D 5e game live on https://twitch.tv/lartra which is reposted to YouTube (with a little bit of editing) at https://twitch.tv/lartra All of my NPCs, maps, and other content from the streams and my novels are updated continuously at https://www.worldanvil.com/w/niya-yur-lartra and I even use the behind-the-scenes content from the World Anvil site in the stream so you can see how I use the dice rolling live. Even better! As I get my next novel close publishing I'm first publishing them online to World Anvil where you will be able to read them before they hit the bookstores.

To help the ends of the month meet and cover the production process I'm turning to Patreon. It's an amazing reliable funding platform. Exactly what I need to allow me to stop worrying about where to get the funds needed to pay for stuff.

As a patron, you get to:
  1. Peek behind the curtain at the wizard as he works
  2. See the works before anyone else!
  3. Read the DM's notes about the campaign sessions, NPCs, and other content for RPGs.
  4. Access the detailed stats, backgrounds, and built-in dice-rolling charts I'm making for my games and writing.
  5. Download the battle maps I make with square grids or no grids to use in your own tabletop games.
  6. Chat with me and the players on our private Discord server.
  7. Kibitz (offer input) on the outcomes and may even get cameo appearances in the stories. You are my patrons and greatest fans!
I wish my favorite authors would give me a chance to chat with them about their stories. I have many ideas and questions I'd have liked to discuss, maybe even give them some inspiration. Hence, I'm giving you that incredible power. Abuse it as you will.

I want to take you on grand adventures to amazing places with people you'll fall in love with. By pledging your support to my Patreon campaign, you'll help me devote myself entirely to putting out books you'll want to read over and over again. There will be laughter, strange concepts, kibitzing, and fun!

Thank you for reading this completely through! Become a Patron by selecting a funding level. A dollar a month is all it takes to get started.

$4.53 of $100 per month
At $100 a month, I'll get an audio engineer to master the podcast and video audio so everything is as clear as possible.
