About Troy McConnell

Tabletop gaming is a fantastic way to have fun with friends and to make new ones. It allows you to escape into other worlds, taking the roles of adventurers, heroes, or scoundrels. But it does not come without work. Planning and finding inspiration for your campaign and sessions can be taxing, frustrating, and time-consuming. That's where I'd like to help.

I produce PDFs and articles that aim to guide you through these steps, whether you're experienced or a novice. Each one goes into detail about how to approach aspects of planning and running the content, while remaining open enough for you to really make it your own. This content includes...
  • 'Encounter by Environment' lists: Tabletop encounter lists organized by their environments and designed to be used for creating random encounters. Each one has detailed twists and turns to make them as memorable as possible. They also come with an introductory section that also guides you through connecting encounters and running the quieter moments as your party traverses the environment.
  • Guides: Ever wondered how to create a realistic, living town without first getting a degree in city planning? My guides are written to help in troublesome areas of game planning that don't always get the attention they deserve.
  • Adventure outlines: Easy to follow guides on how to run a unique and original adventure or a single, layered encounter. These are all written to maximize the effectiveness of your game while minimizing the time spent writing statblocks and thinking of character names.
All of these are designed with reference to 5e mechanics and creatures, though the content itself is system-agnostic. 

Everything I produce is done in association with 2-Minute Tabletop, an incredible source of tabletop maps, tokens, and resources. Much of my content is also posted to the 2-Minute Tabletop website, in the form of articles.
This partnership means that I am able to include a selection of free, appropriate maps and tokens in every release, to make your job as easy as possible.

Why should you support me?
To put it simply, your support would allow me to continue producing content. Every supporter means less stress and more time I can put into the creation process, allowing me to make more in terms of both quality and quantity. I would love to be able to do this as much as possible and your support can make that a reality.

For your support, you will receive automatic updates whenever any content is posted. No more checking for updates or searching for the posted articles. You will have instant access the moment it is available, with higher tiers getting early access in the form of posts during the creation process.
Other tiers will be added later, giving access to bonus content as well as voting polls and even the choice of future releases' content.

How does it work?
  • The level of support is up to you. Don't feel any pressure to subscribe to the higher tiers; do what you can afford.
  • Your support is for each release but can be limited per month. The release schedule depends on the type of articles produced, so feel free to apply a monthly limit (you might subscribe at $2, but limit support at $6/month in case there are more frequent smaller releases). Even the shorter releases are still designed to be worth the investment. You can see how to set a limit here.
  • Patreon will bill you at the end of each month. They have their fees but the majority is sent straight to me.
  • Your support allows me to spend more of my time creating better, more interesting content!
  • Be sure to tell your friends!
