A loyal fan of Dungeons & Dragons for three years, and a fan of Magic: the Gathering for over ten, I became inspired by James Wyatt's Plane Shift series and began writing my own guides and adventures combining my two favorite games. After writing and showing off my works, I decided to start my own Patreon and share what I make with the world. Please, read them over and enjoy to your heart's content!

FAQ

Are these adventures and modules playtested?
Unfortunately, no. (I can hear many clicking the X button now.) I don't have regular access to a group to test my adventures and other modules. I edit them as best I can and try to be fair about how I put them together. All I can ask is that you give them a chance.

Why should I download these?
Part of the fun in D&D is going on these adventures and finding out what works and what does not. I'm not just posting and forgetting these, but am treating them as living documents which grow and change as my patrons play and critique them.

What if I don't like your material? I don't want to just give up money.
No worries! I have free samples of my works posted on my page so you can take a look at them and see if my style of writing adventures and other materials is to your taste. If you don't like it, then you lose nothing out of pocket.

So I download the adventures and become a patron, how do I critique them?
All you have to do is either make a post on the post where the adventure is set or send me a private message. However, I do ask that if you do believe something should be changed, explain why it should be changed and you can even offer ideas on how to make it better. I won't listen to comments that only say 'I didn't like it' or 'it was too hard'. You have to explain why.

What do I get for my money?
What you get for even just a measly dollar is access to my adventures, modules, and other documents. Higher tiers allow you greater say in what comes next in another adventure.

How often can you post an adventure?
Well, I do this as a hobby and it's not my main job so I (for now) am playing cautious with my time. A fully hashed out adventure may take me a month. I will also post smaller documents, base ideas, and older adventures I have written or updated for the page.

Where are the free samples?
They will be my very first posts. As they get critiqued I'll likely update them so they don't get lost under newer posts.

Any other questions? Just pass me a message and I'll do my best to reply promptly.

Happy Adventuring!

Tiers
Rookie Adventurers
$1 or more per month

This is just the starting tier. You get access to all of the adventures, modules, and world guides.


  • View, critique and help grow the documents for special thanks in your name or screen name in the document you helped refine.
  • Patrons of this tier get one vote on the monthly Room Content poll. Posted at the start of each month, a poll describing possible content in one room adventurers will discover during their adventure.
Experienced Adventurers
$5 or more per month

This is the second tier. Not only do you get the benefits of the previous poll, but you also get:


  • One extra vote in the Room Content poll.
  • One vote in the monthly Encounter Poll, a poll detailing an encounter with creatures or NPCs rather than just a trap, puzzle, treasure to discover.
Professional Adventurers
$10 or more per month

This is the Third tier. Not only do you get the benefits of the previous poll, but you also get:


  • One extra vote in the Encounter poll.
  • One vote in the monthly BBEG Encounter Poll, a poll detailing an encounter with the BBEG of the next adventure. Not the BBEG themselves, but if there are traps, hidden minions, terrain, location, that sort of thing.
Veteran Adventurers
$15 or more per month

This is the Fourth tier. Of course you get everything that comes before, but you also get:


  • One extra vote in the BBEG Encounter poll.
  • One vote in the monthly Planar Poll, a poll detailing options as to which MTG plane the adventure will take place on. Innistrad, Kaladesh, those kinds of planes.
Legendary Adventurers
$20 or more per month

Your faith in me is inspiring. I shall not let you down! In return, you get these benefits.


  • Access to all adventures and modules as with previous tiers.
  • 3 votes for all previous polls
  • All patrons of this tier chooses a number between 1 and 100. I will choose one at random and that choice will have an adventure introduction, background, and adventure hooks created as a springboard to a possible future adventure set in the winning plane for that month.
