Hey there!

I happen to enjoy both gaming and the outdoor world, and I'd like to get more into ways to combine the two. Or, at least, get folks interested in striving for some balance between the two. I primarily focus on gardening, as it is a fairly easy way for most folks to get a foot in the door, so to speak, on growing their own food and observing a developing environment, and the changes that happen within. It is also somewhat therapeutic, as I do often wrestle with the downsides of fibromyalgia, and use gardening as a way to work and be productive according to my own clock.

Which is also why I do a lot of gaming related things as well, as they are something I can pick up and do as I can. Gaming streams have also allowed me the opportunity to support worthwhile charities, get into things like speedrunning and online communities, while doing my best to cultivate positive experiences for those in my own community and those I administrate for.

I created this Patreon mostly to offer up a way to those people who'd like to support the community, but can't do so through Twitch. I thought it might offer up a few different options atop already existing ones, through an already well-established platform.

Thanks for taking the time to check out this little statement here, and feel free to peek in on the community!

The funds given towards support of the channel and Discord community will go towards a lot of different things. Be it software giveaways, community game nights, new gardening projects, or just cool things for Toothless (the resident gecko!) to hang out on.

With enough support, we can potentially add new things to the Discord, such as community tournaments for prizes, Art prize/commission prize giveaways, a few spare keys for games folks in the community are checking out. It also gives a little positive encouragement to me, and lets me give back to the community even moreso!

Includes Discord rewards

Want to see me stream certain games? Want to see a particular community tournament, or build a subchannel in Discord for a new discussion about igneous rocks or socio-political discourse on China?

Money given into this pool can be used to do a few things, namely to those folks that are interested in directing some of the content on the streams, or want to get some tournaments going with some prizes on the line. More about these sorts of things will need to be ironed out in detail via the group Discord, using the Subscriber/Patreon channel, to get a better idea of what people want to do at this tier.

Mostly I look at it as these sorts of options:

Playing a certain game on stream, probably to completion.

Creating some video/audio discussion about certain types of content. (Video games or gardening primarily, although I can be flexible in some other subjects as well.)

Grabbing prizes up for a tournament of something we frequently play, or have easy access to.

Charity! If you'd like to support me AND a charity on the side, I am always willing to bump half of this tier back towards local charities (though I'll also take some suggestions as well!)

Of course these aren't the only things available, and there can always be a bit of discussion on other options within the Sub/Patreon channel as well.
