StabbyQuest is a story-driven podcast featuring a group of friends' adventures playing tabletop roleplaying games like Pathfinder and Dungeons & Dragons. StabbyQuest is already 50 episodes deep, and the tone of the first campaign arc is suspense-mystery with an air of prophecy. Will the Players uncover the secrets before the Big Bad gets them? Not at the rate they're going.

By becoming a StabbyQuest patron, you assist us with continuing to deliver the story via high quality content, and you can help shape the rest of the Patreon as well as the campaign! While your contributions will indeed help us cover hosting, analytics, and costs of that sort, it will also help us enhance our recording environments, contract updated character art from Justin Gray, produce Patron-only content (e.g. Backstory Episodes), and travel as a group to Conventions, Renaissance Faires, and local events to meet with and thank our community personally, and hang with our fellow tabletop gaming community at large.

StabbyQuest is available in all podcast outlets, and a link for "Where to Listen" can be found at the top of our website (stabbyquest.com). Come join the StabbyQuest conversation in our Discord! discord.gg/dAyfHnm

We are incredibly grateful for the support we've received so far, we hope you'll enjoy the Patron Tier Rewards and Goals, and we look forward to continuing this grand adventure with you. Thank you!!!

Helpful Townsfolk
$2 or more per month 1 patron
Like the Helpful Townsfolk that support the "good-natured" cast of StabbyQuest, your support helps us meet our goals!


First, you will have access to the Patron-only StabbyQuest feed, which contains news, updates, and the like.


Additionally, we will decorate your Discord name with a special role, signifying you're a Patron.


We appreciate your support and are thrilled that you are enjoying StabbyQuest! THANK YOU!


At this tier you receive:

  • Access to the Patron-only feed
  • Our Eternal Gratitude! 
  • A Discord role
Includes Discord rewards
Curmudgeonly Scholars
$5 or more per month 1 patron
Like "Brogurt" (Taat's misnomer for the resident genius historian), who gives the cast actual, useful information which drives the plot forward, your support at this tier grants you actual, tangible stuff!


Every month, we'll send you a new StabbyQuest computer wallpaper using the official art by Justin Gray, in two sizes (1920x1080 & 2560x1440). 


Additionally, we'll list your name on our website as a Patron!


Additionally, the next time at least two co-located cast members drink an adult beverage, we'll toast to you! And then we'll post it on social media!


At this tier you receive:

  • All of the previous tier rewards
  • A special Discord role
  • Monthly StabbyQuest Wallpapers
  • Your name listed on our website as a Patron
  • A Toast in your name (which will end up on Social Media)
Includes Discord rewards
Kind Tavernkeeps
$10 or more per month 2 patrons
The Floyds and Maryannes of the Patreon, your harborage and hospitality are the lifeblood of encouragement. At this tier, your support helps us such that we'll fondly muse about your name, sing songs in your honor, laugh about good times, and think of you first when we create a second show.

 

First! Things need names. You have one. We want to use it. Supporting at this tier enters your name into the Name Lottery, and as the GM is naming NPCs, items, creatures, towns and the like, he'll dive into the list of Patrons at this tier for a name. Your name (or a fantasy version thereof) may be used as one of these names at the GM's discretion. If your name is used, we will add a shoutout at the end of the episode. "So-and-so was named after one of our $10 Patrons, (you)." The earlier a Patron joins at this tier, the earlier we'll use your name. If there is only one Patron at this tier for more than one month in a row, well, you're going to end up in the show more than once! 


Additionally, you'll receive monthly outtakes and extras of merit, most likely wrapped in some context. These could be extra jokes which were edited out of the show, or our banter and dialogue before or after we record a session.


Additionally, if we meet the "Second Show" Goal, you'll get access to these episodes before everyone else!



 

At this tier you receive:

  • All of the previous tier rewards
  • A special Discord role
  • Induction into the Name Lottery (and if used, a shoutout)
  • Outtakes and Extras
  • Second Podcast Episodes Early (Goal-dependent)
Includes Discord rewards

$20 or more per month 1 patron
There's no other shadowy watcher like you! At this tier, your support is the closest ally the cast has in a campaign where something is probably trying to kill them.


First! In each episode,  you'll get a guaranteed shoutout by your favorite character! This could be a cast member in (or out of!) character, an NPC, or the GM. (Patrons who do not request a specific reader will have their shoutout read by the GM.) 


Additionally, you'll receive Character Backstory episodes! Each month, we'll release a Patron-only episode which will cover a specific PC and detail a section their history. The episode may cover why they are the way they are, or how they got to the starting town of the first campaign. While we won't give away everything (nor will we put the major plot points behind a paywall) some PC secrets will only appear in the backstory episodes. As we've always run StabbyQuest, the generally-secretive PCs choose whether or not to share those secrets with the other PCs. 

 

At this tier you receive:

  • All of the previous tier rewards
  • A special Discord role
  • Monthly backstory episode
  • Access to a special Discord channel for this tier Patrons only
  • Shoutout read by your favorite character
Includes Discord rewards
Crazy Old Wizard in the Woods - Message
$50 or more per month 0 of 3 patrons
Look, there's no other way to say this...


You're a possibly-beyond max-level Wizard whose predilection for the weird and enigmatic style of communication is simultaneously baffling and precisely what the cast needs to further their quest. 

 

So...


By joining this tier, you will be able to send a special message into the world of StabbyQuest using an ancient, arcane ritual. The short message will be read sometime during the episode. Due to the nature of this reward, we can only offer three of these slots per month. 


Additionally, you'll receive a shoutout at the end of each episode which releases during the month you're a Patron at this tier. 


Additionally, this arcane ritual grants you access to a Monthly Discord Q&A / AMA / Hangout with the GM and as many of the StabbyQuest staff as we can wrangle!


There are two versions of this reward, both include the Monthly Q&A / AMA / Hangout.


Notes about the Q&A / AMA / Hangout:

  • This will take place in a special Discord channel/ voice channel that you will have access to as a Patron of this tier.
  • Scheduling can be tough. We will do our best to get as many cast members in here as possible.
  • If the backers of this tier would unanimously prefer a cast-less hangout or a GM-less hangout, that's fine! Especially if you want to try your hand into tricking the GM at giving away secrets. Good luck, though. 


Notes about the Special Message:

  • Messages can be something you want to say to a significant other, a friend, an inside joke... pretty much anything, including "Bob loves Judy" or "[Guild Name] Rules!"
  • The message will be read in a way that aligns with the rest of the podcast content. As such we reserve the right to insert the message wherever we see fit.
  • The GM will work with you to adjust the length, tone, content, or style of the message.
  • Messages that contain racist, sexist, abusive, or other hateful language will not be used, and a forfeiture of funds may occur. 



At this tier you receive:

  • All of the previous tier rewards
  • A very special Discord role
  • Your Special Message read in an episode
  • Shoutout at the end of each episode that is released while you're a Patron at this tier.
  • Access to a special Discord channel for this tier Patrons only
  • Access to a Monthly Discord Q&A / AMA / Hangout
Includes Discord rewards
Crazy Old Wizard in the Woods - Name
$50 or more per month 1 patrons (sold out!)
Okay, maybe there is another way to say this...


You're a possibly-beyond max-level Wizard whose extraordinary compilation of encyclopedic knowledge of all manner of flora, fauna, fey, and arcana bewilders and bemuses the PCs. 

 

So...


By joining this tier, you will work with the GM to name a significant NPC, Location, Object, Creature, or something else that needs a name. At the end of the episode we'll give you a shoutout and credit for the name the first time it appears in the show. Due to the nature of this reward, we can only offer one of these slots per month. 

 

Additionally, you'll receive a shoutout at the end of each episode which releases during the month you're a Patron at this tier.


Additionally, your level of knowledge automatically grants you access to a Monthly Discord Q&A / AMA / Hangout with the GM and the StabbyQuest cast!


There are two versions of this reward, both include the Monthly Q&A / AMA / Hangout.


Notes about the naming:

  • This noun which needs a name can be a major NPC, a piece of treasure, a township/settlement/location, a creature, or something else.
  • At some point we may have to tone this down, but for now, have at it! (Our expectation that a Patron will bump up to this tier for 1 month to guarantee your named object/person/location is used in the ongoing story.) 


Notes about the Q&A / AMA / Hangout:

  • This will take place in a special Discord channel/ voice channel that you will have access to as a Patron of this tier.
  • Scheduling can be tough. We will do our best to get as many cast members in here as possible.
  • If the backers of this tier would unanimously prefer a cast-less hangout or a GM-less hangout, that's fine! Especially if you want to try your hand into tricking the GM at giving away secrets. Good luck, though. 


 

At this tier you receive:

  • All of the previous tier rewards
  • A very special Discord role
  • You name a significant NPC, Location, Object, Creature, etc.
  • Shoutout at the end of the episode that the named noun appears, and credit for the name.
  • Shoutout at the end of each episode that is released while you're a Patron at this tier.
  • Access to a special Discord channel for this tier Patrons only
  • Access to a Monthly Discord Q&A / AMA / Hangout


Includes Discord rewards
Goals
$43 of $2,000 per month
A Second Podcast!

Same cast, new cast, new setting, same setting, who knows! When we hit this goal, we'll be able to bring you a second show. Where we go is up in the air, and who goes depends largely on our schedules. We may end up on bikes or in a post-war, high-tech landscape. Or in space!

This Goal is tied to a tier/tiers. If we reach this goal, the associated tiers will upgrade to include the result of this goal. See tiers for specifics.
