Two years of community and bonus NyxRising content await you, so why not pick a tier and get stuck in?

Welcome Adventurers!
I'm Nyx, founder & director of NyxRising Industries on Youtube - but if you're here, you probably already know that. We make nerd content by the bucketload - Life of the Party Dungeons & Dragons, cosplay, comedy, makeup & SFX, horror...we love the lot of it. We're expanding into podcasting and written fiction too, and hope to venture into graphic novels and music at some point soon.

What is Patreon and how does it work?
You've made it this far - thank you so much! Patreon is a crowdfunding platform for people who want to be 'patrons of the arts', in a much more modern sense:
  • By signing up for a monthly reward tier, you're directly supporting our creative work
  • A subscription will get you access to loads of bonus NyxRising content - vlogs, behind the scenes and bloopers, discount codes, our patron-only discord and tons more
  • Patrons get their say in our work too - with polls and discussions of what you'd like us to work on, and even the opportunity to help plan some of our videos from the ground up, you're in control of our content
  • You can edit or cancel your pledge easily at any time!
  • Your first pledge will be taken on the day you sign up but after this you will be charged on the 1st of every month. This way you can have access to all your perks straight away!
You can support us in other ways too:
Be sure to subscribe to our Youtube if you haven't already!
Life of the Party has its own one-time donation crowdfund on Indiegogo
One-off donations can be made via Ko-Fi
We have merchandise for sale at Teespring

I can't even begin to explain how much a pledge would mean to us - it would enable us to keep doing what we love for many years to come and push us beyond what we've ever created before... so thank you for even considering it. We love you. 

What does Patreon pay for?
✦ We have thrice upgraded our audio! Have a listen to one of our early videos and then our latest - it's almost as if we know what we're doing now!
✧ New video equipment! We've met our goal of upgrading to a Canon 5D Mark IV thanks to your help! The quality really shows in our music videos!
✦ Lenses, tripods, lighting; all the stuff that makes our production look so much more professional
✧ Production design - check out our cool sets!
✦ Expanding into other platforms and formats, like podcasting!
✧ Our time and travel - Nyx and Chase work almost full-time on the channel, and everyone else has to work around their schedules to travel and film constantly. Thanks to you, that's much easier now

$2000 A MONTH
Improved audio, more videos, and a very special publication project! These are our three major goals for 2020, and you can really help us get there. As well as financially supporting what we do, $2000 a month would:
Help us buy improved audio equipment once again - everything we've acquired in the past thanks to your help is brilliant, but as our projects get bigger, so do our requirements! We'd like to purchase two more Rode Video Mic Pro's to double improve our podcast audio
Increase our video output - we've got so many ideas, and never the funds to create them! There's costumes and travel and set design to cover, so we'd put towards that to produce more great content and post twice a week as standard
Create our side project! - no reveals just yet, but we're working on something big and when the time comes, we want to publish it in a truly special way. Time to save!
