Most of all, I love to make maps of dungeons.
About a while back, I made How to Host a Dungeon, a solo dungeon creation game. A lot of people enjoyed it, and still do. Now I’m making How to Host a Dungeon V2. Along the way I also plan to make a lot of new drawings and maps. This Patreon will help support this work.
Who are you again?
I’m Tony Dowler, a Seattle-based artist, writer, and game designer. I have illustrated for several games, such as Dungeon World and Blossoms are Falling. I’ve also written a few. Some of them are in the archives of this Patreon, like Isotope and Blacktop. I also created the Seattle Doomsday Map, a successful Kickstarter project, and I’m the President of GO Play NW, an indie tabletop gaming convention in Seattle.
What is How to Host a Dungeon v2?
How to Host a Dungeon V2 is the new version of my solo dungeon building game. In How to Host a Dungeon, you simulate the growth of a great megadungeon from the dawn of time through rising and falling civilizations, waves of monsters and adventurers, and great evils that threaten the world.
How to Host a Dungeon V2 will add way more monsters, civilizations, and horrors, new rooms, locations, and mysteries, new mechanics and art. As a Patreon, you will get access to the newest versions as they are created.
Why am I doing this?
Patreon enables me to dedicate more time and effort to this project. I have a full-time job, and I support a family. Thanks to Patreon, I am able to take one day a week away from that job and spend it in my studio working on How to Host a Dungeon.
That’s the first reason. The second reason is that with Patreon I’m connected with the people who are most interested in my work. If no one’s interested in what I’m doing, I lose interest too. Making things for people and seeing them used is a huge reward.
