Who am I?
Oh, hello
, I’m the Professor! While I’m also an adjunct professor at my local community college, I also create internet content about Magic the Gathering, Pokémon, and other trading card and board games on YouTube.

What I want to do in my videos is provide thought-provoking discussion, intriguing critical analysis, and insight into the workings of my very, very strange mind.

Why the Patreon?
With your direct support, I can continue to create objective product reviews, pay people a fair wage to appear with me on skits, and ramble at you for twenty minutes about the latest format or whatever else strikes my fancy.

What does my money actually pay for?
The Patreon funds cover a variety of things (props, products, people, food, etc…), which in turn helps me produce a variety of content such as:

  • Product Reviews
  • Deck Techs
  • Comedy Skits (Office Hours, Kitchen Table Fables, etc…)
  • InResponse
  • Tolarian Winds
  • Q&A’s
  • Magic Memories (my experiences at PAX, GP’s, etc…).
  • Tutorials
  • Pokémon TCG reviewsThere is a distinct possibility of creating yet more content, so stay tuned!

When does your content come out?
Three times a week, regularly, with new content posted Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Saturdays (assuming I don’t get sick).

How can I support you?
First of all, THANK YOU. Your support means a lot to me, and I’m incredibly grateful. You can help by contributing to the Patreon - even as little as a dollar a month can help me continue creating content that you enjoy and I love making.

And you’ll get rewards - for as little as $10/month, you can get a signed card from me from my collection. At $15/month, you’ll join our esteemed Tolarian Community College Dean’s List, which will featured at the end of every video posted on my YouTube channel.

What else?
Thank you. Thank you so much for helping me make this a reality.

Ad-Block Absolution
Patrons donating just $1.00 per month are giving about 1,000X more to Tolarian Community College than every ad they could possibly watch in a month.  Therefor, donators at this level get the reward of Ad-Block Absolution!  You can now use Ad-Block software GUILT FREE!

Now, I know I have already said that I don't care if you use Ad-Block software, but you are such awesome people that I have heard time and time again that you feel guilty about using it none the less.  GUILT NO MORE! Because honestly, that $1.00 is soooo much more than YouTube would have paid me for those ads, that you can feel proud for supporting the college and avoiding annoying ads at the same time.
Pledge $5 or more per month
You get access to the Patreon page and get to help vote to decide what the bonus videos are about.  You also get invites to the Google Hangouts and all other Patron-only events.
Signed Card From The Professor!
$10 or more per month
Signed card!  Many Magic: The Gathering players ask the question, "You are never at a GP near me! I can't get cards signed by you!" Hahaha, that's not a question, friend, but it is true.  If you'd like to become a $10.00 patron, I will happily send you a one time gift of a signed card from my collection.  I pick the card, and I will try and make it a reflection of me and the college. Yes, I will send the card internationally. Make sure you enter your correct shipping address!
The Dean's List! Get Your Name In The Credits
$15 or more per month
You can't buy grades at Tolarian Community College, but our Dean is happy to put your name on the list of benefactors at the end of every episode*.


At this level of contribution, at the end slate of each episode, when I say "Thanks to the support of viewers like you..." I will show YOU. Well, your name.


You will also get a signed card, and all other benefits from lower tiers (signed card is a one time gift).


Endslate list will be updated at the start of each month, so if you pledge $15 on March 3, your name will be on the endslate throughout April.  COntinued support at this level means your name continues to appear on the endslate.


*Some rare/special episodes may not feature an end slate.

AN ACTUAL OFFICE
I film in a basement.  It's windowless. It's cold. There's very likely deadly mold in the walls.  If I can reach this level of funding, I can afford to rent an actual office space for Tolarian Community College!  This will allow me all sorts of advantages that translate into better quality content as well as new and exciting projects that can now be pursued.  Also...no more deadly mold!
