Peasants help keep my projects going and can see new updates on my feed.

Craftsman

$5
per month
Craftsmen can see stuff on my feed and I will, upon request, make a custom plant, tree, piece of equipment, or animal for you if you desire, which will show up in your game when installed. Should you wish, you can pay a one-time fee of 2.50 and I will make another creature for you. So long as you are subscribed to my Patreon I will ensure your creatures remain playable in subsequent dwarf fortress versions. Contact me for figuring out the details.

Merchant

$15
per month
Merchants can see stuff on my feed and I will, upon request, make a non-playable civilized race for them if they desire. That is, an NPC civilization like humans or goblins that can show up in the game. Should you wish, you can pay a one-time fee of 10.00 and I will make another NPC civilization for you. So long as you are subscribed to my Patreon I will ensure your civilization remains stable in subsequent dwarf fortress versions. Benefits of the previous tier also apply. Contact me for figuring out the details.

About

Hey, so I'm a nerd who makes dwarf fortress mods and I'd really like to keep doing it far into the future. This Patreon exists so I can focus on doing the thing I love and even help me pay a bill or two to boot! Any support is appreciated, and I'll do my best to keep working to produce all sorts of things to intrigue and entertain both my patrons and anyone else with a love of adventure.

Essentially, what I do is take the bare skeleton of Dwarf Fortress's game mechanics and rework it into an entirely new setting, using new creatures, people, plants, and all sorts of other additional features. There's post-apocalyptic westerns, horrifying visions of the far future, surreal steampunk alternate history, and much more!

Being able to create all sorts of vivid fantasy and science fiction landscapes is really fun, and I'm super thankful that such an amazing game like Dwarf Fortress lets me bring these sorts of things to life.

Here's all my stuff so far: http://dffd.bay12games.com/who.php?id=7197

These particular projects are, in my opinion, the most polished and enjoyable:

Goals
$73.57 of $1,100 per month
This is the minimum goal I need for this hobby to function as a legitimate job. Reaching this is basically a confirmation that I can use my modding abilities as a legitimate career, which would be a major stepping stone.
