is creating Roleplaying Games

patrons

per month
I’ve been creating roleplaying games for thirty years, give or take, and have written for Shadowrun, Earthdawn, and Mage: The Ascension, among other projects and product lines. Currently, I’m line developer for 1879, a steampunk fantasy game from FASA.

I’ve come to Patreon to explore my creative drive, and delve into gaming systems and worlds that wander off from the mainstream, story-driven games that may appeal only to a select few. I’m inviting you to join me and see where this journey takes us, as I create on a blank canvas. My goal is to work with my patrons as a live studio audience, and adjust my act according to your reactions.

As my companions on this voyage, you’ll get direct access to the creative process. I’ll be working right in front of you, with draft copy being posted to patrons as soon as I’m ready for someone besides me to see it. You’ll get to critique it, and even at times vote on where things go next. Patrons at the Participant level and above will get PDFs of the finished products sent directly to them, or links to where they can be downloaded for free. At higher levels, you’ll get swag, invitations to playtest sessions, access to sandbox campaigns in my game worlds, and printed and signed copies of the finished products.
Tiers
Curious Onlooker
$1 or more per month

You get to see the process of game development, from conceptualization to finished product. You will occasionally be asked your opinion, either in freeform commentary or in voting.

Cognoscenti
$6 or more per month

As above, plus you get a copy of each finished product in PDF. You'll be invited to beta playtests online.

Inner Circle
$15 or more per month

As above, plus you get invited to premiere sessions, where new material gets rolled out and you get to critique it in realtime, and to in-person closed gaming sessions at conventions. You’ll be sent a printed (at FedEx Office or similar facility) and signed copy of each new product. We’ll send you some sort of really nice swag, TBD.

Secret Mystic Lodge Initiate
$30 or more per month

As above, plus you’ll be invited to On Air gaming sessions, where we record for distribution on YouTube or Twitch or whatever. Your printed copy will be run through Lulu or other POD company so you get an actual book. Once a year, you get a command performance where we will run an adventure of your choice (using our game system) for you and up to five of your  friends (who don’t have to be patrons) on the platform of your choice, taking the whole day for it if you want. If travel arrangements are feasible, we’ll even do it in person. Note that this cannot be scheduled to conflict with conventions that we’re already committed to. We’ll send you a unique swag item, something nobody else will have one of.

Goals
$23 of $50 per month
At this milestone, I'll start posting the development work on the Dynamic Balances game engine.
