Patron

Thank you for making more free games possible! Your name in the “thank you” list for all games I release, except when the format makes including such a list utterly unfeasible (such as if I’m fitting all of the text on a business card or something). Your name listed as a patron on my website(s). And I will e-mail you about all of my projects, creations and activities, not just those which count as Patreon updates. Note: you can opt out of each of these three things separately, if you wish.

Pledge $3 or more per unfinished role-playing game released to patrons.

Patron & play-pal

Want to meet me and play games together? You’re my Patron (as above), plus I will miss no opportunity to play with you in person. You’re always welcome to my place near Florence, Italy, to play role-playing games — and food and drink’s on me (Notes: we usually cook vegetarian food, we can cook vegan; house not suitable to the cat allergic). Or, if we happen to be at the same convention somewhere, or if I travel to your area for other reasons, I will take extra effort to ensure we can meet and play the game of your choice.

Pledge $5 or more per unfinished role-playing game released to patrons.

Distant patron & play-pal

So, you’re really serious about meeting me! As a Patron & play-pal, but additionally I’m available to travel to your place or to the gaming conventions of your choice: anywhere in the world, if you can cover my travel expenses (and I’m not a picky traveller: I don’t need anything fancy). My availability is of course subject to schedule overlap and work obligations, but I promise to give your summons as high a priority as humanly possible.

Pledge $7 or more per unfinished role-playing game released to patrons.

Collector

You want a physical artifact of what you pledge for! You're a Patron & play-pal, plus once or twice a year I will pick my better polished game available in your favorite language (English or Italian) and make a special print edition of it for you only: home-printed on the most ecological paper I can afford, hand-bound by yours truly (expect a stapled booklet in most cases) and of course numbered and signed. Shipping is on me, though I will deliver by hand if there's a chance.

Board of advisors

Want to get involved in my creative process? As a Patron & play-pal, plus you become a member of a special mailing list of people I consult with whenever I’m not sure what to do next (which is often). Most of the time, I’m juggling multiple creative projects and have to decide which takes priority; I also need to take decisions regarding which conventions to attend, which language to write the first draft of a new game in, etc. In the end, I’m solely responsible for my own choices and under no strict obligation to hear you, but I do genuinely care for and need your advice — otherwise, I wouldn’t be asking! Note: I will need to share your e-mail address with other board of advisors members.

Have me at your event with something special for your people! As a Distant patron & play-pal, and additionally, when you summon me to a gaming convention of your choice (and cover my basic travel expenses as usual), I will try and design something special for the occasion: a new game or other event, tailored to the circumstances. Understand that it’s probably going to be a simpler thing than what I would otherwise design, depending on time constraints. If you run your own convention, this works as your secret “use me as part of your team” button.
