About

Liz and Steffie are making games!

Hi there! We’re so glad you made it to our Patreon. We are Elizabeth Chaipraditkul (aka Liz) and Steffie de Vaan. Together we make games exploring weird worlds and dark desires. We hope you’ll join us on this journey.

We’re both freelance RPG authors, and you may have read some of our work. Liz was the lead developer for the Crescent Empire book for 7th Sea 2nd Edition, author of the Book of Lore for Bluebeard’s Bride, and owns her own Indie company Angry Hamster Publishing. Steffie worked on Changeling the Lost 2nd Edition and Cavaliers of Mars, and developed V5: The Fall of London for and Legendlore for the 5th Edition Roleplaying System.

We’ll do three things on this Patreon: create indie games; give advice on writing and designing games, and breaking into the tabletop roleplaying games industry; and talk about our non-Patreon projects where NDA’s allow (we both work on a LOT of books).

Your support allows us to dedicate set hours every month to our Patreon games. The length and complexity of these games, and thus their time to create, varies. Sometimes you’ll get a smaller hack or mini-game that took us one month to create, other times you’ll get a larger game that took a few months. We’ll be completely transparent, let you know what we’re working on, the progress we made that month, and when we roughly expect it to be done.

Our Patreon focuses on games playable as a stand-alones, or as supplement to a previously released Patreon game.

Our Games

We’re writing mini tabletop RPGs, LARPs, and freestyle games of varying length. Some of them will be dark, others will be funny, and all of them will be great. They’ll be laid out in a clear and neat manner, so you can easily read them on your tablet or computer, and print them without spending oodles of ink. By joining us on Patreon you can see the pie getting made, give us early feedback on previews, and support our creative endeavors.

We started our Patreon in 2019 with the intention of releasing a mini-game each month. As you can see below, we succeeded. We even funded a printed anthology of all our games in January 2020.
