Let's Build Some Paper Miniatures (And Worlds) Together!
youtube.com/watch?v=dHholi6v9Uwhttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dHholi6v9Uw
I've been playing Tabletop RPGs since 1981 when I picked up a copy of the Gamma World boxed set. This was followed by D&D Basic and Expert Set. I shifted to Advanced D&D the summer of 1982 and also played a ton of Champions, Traveller and Call of Cthulhu. I've been writing and illustrating RPGs since 1999 with work for Guardians of Order. I've published paper mini pdfs and role playing games and supplements on RPGNow since 2010. I've run two kick-starters and really enjoyed the collaborative aspect of creating game material with a group of supportive and motivated people who share the same interests and passions for gaming as I do. 

What Worlds Exactly? 
Mostly, I want to flesh out the world of Darkfast Dungeons, the original print and play tabletop adventure game I created with my first Kickstarter. It's a fantasy setting based on my original 1981 D&D campaign so there will be lots of familiar sandbox elements to play with, but I'd like your help with the details as they come up (deities, adventures, NPCs, etc.). Other genres will also be explored such as Sci Fi, Retro Sci Fi, Magical Girl, Steampunk, Horror, Superhero, etc. It's going to be up to you to help guide the creative output of this endeavour. The outcome will be a set of minis, adventures, game material, and other products every month, depending on the path we are taking. The goal is to have something you can use to enhance your own gaming experience no matter what game you play: sometimes it will be a set of paper minis, other months it will be a bestiary or adventure. Once and a while a core game book might just appear. Signing up for the Patreon at the $5 + level also enables you to get passes to freshly released paper mini sets as they come out. 

What Games Will Be Supported?
Most material will be designed for use with Okumarts Games Games (Darkfast Dungeons, Save the Day) AND Swords & Wizardry: White Box (and compatible games). Of course, much of it will be game-agnostic and usable by most every gamer out there. 

About the Artist

I’ve been a published comic book artist since I submitted my work to my high school and university newspapers in a series of increasingly less embarrassing bodies of work that culminated in successful work for Antarctic Press with the Girls of Ninja High School anthology comic for 1992 and a follow up in 1993. Emboldened by this success I produced a few issues of Contraption and worked off and on in the comics and table top role playing game industry while pursuing teaching and raising children. This was followed up with illustration and writing work for games company Guardians of Order in the late 90s, early 2000s. My big work came in 2003 with the release of Manga Madness, an instructional book on drawing manga. This was followed by a series of books with “madness” in the title and a panel at Comic Con in San Diego with Lea Seidman Hernandez and Will Eisner. More recently I have been producing work for the table top gaming industry including a successful collection of print and play paper miniatures and the Kickstarter-funded fantasy board game Darkfast Dungeons as well as the Superhero RPG Save the Day.

Get access to downloads of the basic paper minis released for the month.  Most of these minis will be eventually offered for sale to non-supporters.
Mini-Maniac
$5 or more per month 39 patrons
This gives you access to earlier pledge levels and includes free versions of  the paper minis made for the world-building as well as modifications and variations of existing minis offered that month (excluding game material, maps, etc.). Most of these minis will be eventually offered for sale to non-supporters, but you will be sent complementary copies of paper mini products released during your support pledge period and you will have access to exclusive content as it is made available.
World-Builder
$10 or more per month 9 patrons
This gives you access to earlier pledge levels and includes all of the free extra material including world-building, maps, ephemera, paper minis, games and gaming material. You will also participate in decision-making relating to world-building choices. Most of this material will be eventually offered for sale to non-supporters, but you will be sent complementary copies of products released during your support pledge period and you will have access to exclusive content as it is made available.
Mover & Shaker
$25 or more per month 1 patron
This gives you access to earlier pledge levels and includes exclusive alternate and bonus minis not available in lower levels or for sale (re-colours, mods, etc.) and exclusive write-ups, maps, and game material.  
Imagineer
$50 or more per month 0 of 10 patrons
This gives you access to earlier pledge levels and l will allow you to have one high quality custom colour illustration 8.5x11 (digital file) of your choice each month, created to your specifications. This essentially lets you order one special "thing" per month. You will have all rights to these requested image (thing).

Holy Doodle! That’s amazing! Thank you! This gives you access to earlier pledge levels and includes monthly custom figures, maps, monster write-ups, etc. (for most OSR and classic RPGs). This essentially lets you order two "things" per month instead of the one "thing" at the Imagineer tier. Thank you for your amazing support.
Goals
$305 of $500 per month
If you help raise $500 per month I will create a horde of paper minis of a classic very useful monster from the original game's collection of monsters (Orcs, Bugbears, Goblins, etc. voted on by you) that will be released free to everyone.
