What Your Patronage Means to Us

Your monthly contributions will go toward improving our equipment, expanding our production capabilities, investing in props, tools, or other materials needed for the game or show, and maybe one day remote, video, or live events. You'll also be helping us cover fees for server hosting, backup systems and maintenance, file storage, and more.



Your contributions may also help with book production, art, editor fees, and furthering the Heart of Bronze publications that, in turn, further the show. We'll also be making custom items for giveaways and gifts, potentially including, but not limited to, things for fellow tabletoppers, like custom dice boxes, dice towers, and dice trays.

The more you can help us, the more we can grow, improve, and continue to bring you laughter, thrills, adventure, and gripping storytelling!

Our reward tiers offer everything from original patron-only art and info, early access to new stuff, news and announcements, to autographed books, free e-books, NPC characters you design written into the stories, episodes dedicated to you or your own projects, or even a virtual seat at our table. Give us a listen, give our tiers a glance, or contact us directly at [email protected] if you have any questions. We hope to welcome you as a patron of the show!

Join the Steam Rollers Adventure Podcast!

The Steam Rollers Adventure Podcast is a custom roleplaying game set in the Steampunk genre. We're an actual-play, adult comedy podcast featuring a cast of bizarre characters making their way through adventures set in the Heart of Bronze universe, the fictional alternate-reality created by author Michael J. Rigg.  



You don't need to read any of the books to enjoy the podcast. The books merely provide the setting. The tales and adventures in the show are as diverse as the players within it, simply taking queues from the Story Crafter (or GM, or DM, if you will), who happens to also be the author of the series. Our show comes out every Tuesday, and generally runs about an hour. Every episode surrounds the adventures of our player characters as they solve mysteries or thwart enemies (If the dice are kind) in an alternate reality that is both familiar and strange. Sometimes we present special episodes that cover lore, mechanics, out-of-character chat, or guest spots.

Role-playing Steampunk?

If you're new to tabletop role-playing games, Google "Dungeons & Dragons," and you'll get the idea. We pretty much work like that, but with unique rule sets, and all within a Steampunk universe. If you're new to Steampunk, just think "Victorian science fiction," and you'll get the idea. Imagine a world where the Industrial Revolution never took hold. Imagine a world where the stuff of Jules Verne, Nikola Tesla, H.G. Wells, and H.P. Lovecraft took off! Our stories are filled with curious gadgets, machines of steam, crawling cities, monstrous airships, slavering ghouls, crafty witches, and a nation divided by continuous warfare.



We're an adult comedy gaming show, meaning we sport an "explicit" tag on iTunes--mostly for strong language and mature situations. We can be crude, so tell the kids to play in another room when you listen. The "#SRAP" is definitely NOT for the faint of constitution.

You also get exclusive access to RBY2187's blog: "News From Robbie's Garage," a patron-only newsletter about all the things the Storycrafter won't share!Want a peek behind the curtain? Robbie does it for you, and dishes all the dirt! This is FAR from being a "fail" in our books!

The red chip in our game grants the player a +2 or +3 advantage on a d20 roll.

The Blue Chip in our game grants a re-roll on any "failed" d20 roll that isn't a crit.

(requires a working email address)

Includes Discord rewards
GREEN CHIP
$10 or more per month
The Green Chip represents a huge "extravagance" in our game. Buy an aerocar? First Class passage on an airship? And in Season 3...it counts as ammunition!

Includes Discord rewards
GOLD CHIP
$20 or more per month
A Crit Success in our game earns a "Banked 20." A gold chip is an "Automatic 20" the player can cash in instead of rolling a d20.

For our highest level patrons, this translates to ALL the other rewards combined (which means you now get 4 automatic contest entries ;) ), PLUS a personally autographed copy of one or more Heart of Bronze soft cover books! Gold level patrons also get very SPECIAL shout-outs and mentions in the acknowledgements of future books, AND first crack at joining the cast when open calls are announced! The BIGGEST new perk of being a Gold Chip Patron is the "Heart of Bronze All Access Pass!" This pass, built into your chip level, grants sneak peeks at ALL CURRENT AND FUTURE Heart of Bronze projects, such as novels, the COPPERHEART audio drama, and more!
