If you're just dropping by and saw my posts elsewhere:

I add content to each one of these tiers all the time, so look for more to be added next month!

Longer Version:
I've written over a 1,000 reviews for Amazon, over 2,500 articles as National Sci-Fi Movie Examiner and National RPG Examiner, one non-fiction book on the history of role-playing gamesthree fiction novels, three web comics, and a bunch of stuff for 3.5 Dungeons & Dragons including AEG, MonkeyGod Enterprises, Goodman Games, Otherworld Creations, Privateer Press, RPGObjects and Ronin Arts. My articles and reviews have appeared in Allgame.com, D20 Filtered, Dragon Magazine, Gamers.com, Pyramid, RPG.net, and Sharktopus. I have participated in panels about electronic and tabletop role-playing games at ConnectiCon, Dragon*Con, and I-Con.

It's thanks to patrons like you that I was able to create 5E Armies of the Christmas War, 5E Fearsome Critters5E Gammapedia5E Heaven & Hell, 5E Lovecraftian Horrors, 5E Martians Attack!, and 5E Nightmares Before Christmas. Thank you!
