HI Peeps.

I want to welcome you to my Patreon page. Why is this thing here, and what the heck am I doing anyways? Let me first tell you a little about myself.

I'm a blind dude from Chicago who makes Let's Plays of console and now audio-based games. Youtube has tons of Let's Players of console games, but very few of Audio games made for the blind. I want to fix this by regularly uploading entertaining videos for people to enjoy.
My Youtube channel found at http://youtube.com/user/liamerven is proof of what I have already accomplished and what I can continue to do.

I need your help though. I don't expect to do this kind of thing full time, but I'd love to find a way to somewhat monetize my hobby. I will be completely transparent in pointing out that yes I am a Youtube partner, but the partner program is only useful for those with millions of views. This is not me. This is why I've come to Patreon to ask for all of you who enjoy my videos to help out if you can.

If you can help me in any way, we can get things done here. I can record more games, and upgrade my equipment to capture not only audio games, but computer games as well. there are tons of fighting games I'd love to record and stream, but can't due to the lack of a good video card. Who knows. Maybe I can make enough money to hang out all day and make fun videos for you guys. Wouldn't that be epic?

A question I get is where does the money go? It allows me to purchase games along with better recording and computer equipment. For example, patreon funds allowed me to purchase the web cam which is now used in all future videos. Patreon funds also helped me travel to Gamer Grace where I was able to host a panel on game accessibility from a blindness perspective.

Please consider helping me if you can to make this channel the best it can be, and help me spread the message of the importance of accessibility for all.
Tiers
I'd buy that for a Dollar
$1 or more per month 11 patrons
Believe it or not, but a single dollar goes a long way. Imagine if 10000 people gave a dollar? That would be a lot of dollars floating around like in those cash grab machines. Those things are cool. Oh... Where was I. Ah yes. You'll get.

Access to the Erven Army Discord server.

Access to new videos 12 to 24 hours before the general public. I attempt to give patrons as much lead time as possible.

Vote in polls. Who doesn't love polls?

Access to Patreon only streams where I'll let you ask questions, chat, and otherwise hang out.

A Three Dollar Tier
$3 or more per month 25 patrons
Could you imagine if instead of Patreon this was an Island, and we were all castaways? No, you can't? Well okay I can't either. Either way. Thank you for the $3. You'll get.

The rewards from the first tier.

Your name in every video. For recorded videos your name will be in the description, and for live streams I read the patrons list usually twice per stream.

Includes Discord rewards
Pick One
$7.50 or more per month 2 patrons
Wow. I really do appreciate this. $7.50 is no small feat for a lot of people. I mean that's almost a netflix subscription, or hulu, or spotify, or that one exercise app that you forgot you had the subscription to for about two years. So in return.

You'll get all previous rewards, and you will be able to pick a game of your choice for me to play on my Let's Playtreon series.

Rules for that right quick.

1. The game has to be short enough that it can be completed in a single video of 45 minutes or less.

2. The game needs to come from a list found on a post here on my page. I'll update regularly with a current list.

3. You are entitled to a game every six months. You don't have to cumulatively pledge for six months, but this makes it easier for me to manage.

Includes Discord rewards
Pick Two
$15 or more per month 3 patrons
Wowy! You really are awesometastic. $15? I mean. That's like. Well. Double the previous reward. That's so cool, and I appreciate you so so so soooo much. 

You'll get every previous reward plus I'll let you pick two games instead of one.
