Welcome, Outlander. They call me Tril of Yridia, your resident bardbarian blogger and lunatic word-alchemist, lover of eldritch prose and occult aesthetics, child of chaos and nature and all things weird. I run the D&D blog OtherworldlyIncantations.com.

MILDLY EPIC BACKSTORY
I’ve dabbled in Dungeons & Dragons for more than half my life, and as a youth I spent thousands of gleeful hours on worldbuilding a homebrew campaign setting. Tragically, in 2008, I lost all my digital notes in a computer failure. The project lay dormant, its loss haunting me. Nine years passed, then fortune called: I found a forgotten flash drive with a hidden archive of over 600 pages of my notes, art, maps, and sprites.

Reinvigorated, in 2017 my muse returned and I began scrawling notes at a furious pace, updating and merging content with a homebrew campaign I had DM’d as an adult. I already had some background in formal writing and editing, so I spent a year learning professional web design, dreaming I could one day make this project a reality. I began brainstorming and categorizing over 100 posts, with about a dozen already in progress. Let's make it happen!

WELCOME TO OTHERWORLDLY INCANTATIONS
On September 4th, 2018, I take the deep plunge, blogging my journey of creation at OtherworldlyIncantations.com. With your help, we can resurrect the dreams of my youth, tempered by the wisdom of my adulthood. We can conjure a world most daring and dangerous: the Yridia D&D 5e Campaign Setting.

WHATREON?
Patreon allows you to pledge recurring monthly support for my creative endeavors, sort of like a medieval patronage system but with 90% fewer Iron Maidens. I have tried to keep prices accessible, offering Individual Tiers per month of $2, $4, $6, $10, $15, $20, and $30. You can also pay a custom amount. Benefits ramp up across both Individual Tiers and Collective Goals.

EVEN BARDS NEED SOME COIN
I have a plan, and I’ve kept it realistic. I will start with reliably releasing one quality 1200+ word article every Tuesday. For my goals I made a detailed personal budget and kept precise track of my Living Expenses across several tiers: Minimalist, Modest, and Comfortable. How many hours per week I can realistically dedicate to this project scales with finances. I can’t just cast Goodberry all the time like some people.

My goals include covering not only my essential Living Expenses, but also the Basic Website Expenses, Social Media Promotion, and Custom Commissioned Art from Independent Artists (in two phases). As your collective support increases, I can add more hours and more content: a Secondary Weekly Mini-Series, Monthly Short-Stories, and perhaps, Patrons-willing, I could publish a full Yridia D&D 5e Campaign Setting.

DOES THIS WARLOCK PACT COME WITH PATRON POWERS?

You bet! Patrons get much more than the weekly articles. Depending on your Level, you gain any of the following as Class Features: Exclusive Posts & Polls, Name In The Credits, Monthly Google Hangouts, Writing & Editing Tips Notes, Twitter Follows, content Sneak Peeks, and Web Design Notes. At the highest tiers, I may also Randomly Affirm Your Name in posts, and you may even Gaze At My Childhood Dreams, the amusing wreckage unearthed by that fortuitous flash drive.

OK BUT WHAT DO YOU ACTUALLY BLOG ABOUT?
My blogging generally falls within 10 categories:
1) Machina – homebrew D&D 5e fictional technology.
2) Madness – mental health & communication resources for gamers.
3) Magic - historical magick, my Magic Lands System, tropes on magic in fiction, worldbuilding.
4) Mayhem – homebrew D&D 5e backgrounds, classes, dungeons.
5) Mechanics – homebrew D&D 5e mechanics, rules, resources.
6) Media – fiction reviews, fan theories, interviews.
7) Mindscapes – fantastical architecture and landscapes, condensed mental systems for fantasy worldbuilding, and terrain craft art.
8) Monsters – monster mindsets & morphology, culture & ecology, homebrew D&D 5e monsters.
9) Musings – miscellaneous reflections & analysis.
10) Mythology – writings on storytelling and worldbuilding, including my favorite genres, mythic lore, and theories about dungeon cosmology.

CAN I GIVE SUPPORT BEYOND COIN?
I always appreciate anytime you share my content with folks who will enjoy it, your interest and outreach help this project out significantly. I also respect any useful feedback you have. Finally, maybe you can help close this Portal to the Nine Hells in my basement, all that infernal clatter makes it harder and harder to Short Rest.

This covers my Basic Website Expenses: the theme, hosting, domain, special fonts and symbols, etc. At this amount, I can reliably produce my Primary Weekly Content (a 1200+ word article every Tuesday) and keep this project running like a Rothé herd across the Underdark: slow, steady, and stoic.
