Typically, if this were a convention, this is the point where I'd buy you a beer and give you my pitch, but since this is Patreon, we'll have to skip the beer.

Firstly, a disclaimer:
How often am I charged? 
You will be charged at the end of the month, when Patreon tallies up how many updates I posted during that time. Silver City updates four times a month, so if you pledged $2 per update, then at the end of the month you will be charged $8 total. You can set a cap on how much you’re willing to be charged each month, so even if I update a million times you won’t be charged beyond your maximum amount. You can edit or cancel your pledge any time before you’re charged.

Who We Are
Hi! My name is Keith Wood. My partner is J Gray. Together, we're Royal Road Studios. With my art and J's writing we've been putting out a webcomic called Mysteries of the Arcana since 2008.

We love telling stories that others enjoy, and Patreon has provided a system that allows us to do so, while still being able to put funds toward our bills.

What we're doing
We're starting off with a superhero comic series called Silver City, a story of ordinary people who must stand up and become heroes in a city where newly emerged powers threaten to destroy the world. A story inspired by mythology and containing a diverse cast of characters.

We also want to provide stories from other genres for you to enjoy down the line.

What you're funding
Making comics is a lot of fun, but also a lot of work. Your funding will go towards supplies, web hosting and maintenance and helping us making ends meet in our day to day lives. Also, we'll use the money for Patreon exclusive items like printed posters and small print runs.
Our goal, for the time being, is to have the comic itself update at least once a week, in full color, for all of you lovely people out there to enjoy, and on our way to the future, we'll have more goodies and more inside looks to offer!
