I'm Stew Wilson, and I make games

I've been a professional tabletop game designer for fifteen years, working primarily on games for White Wolf and later Onyx Path, including four years as the lead developer on Werewolf: The Apocalypse and Werewolf: The Forsaken. What can I say, I like werewolves. I've also created a bunch of my own games, like Beyond, the game of ghosts who won't let go, BLACK SEVEN, the stealth-action RPG along the lines of Deus Ex or Assassin's Creed, and Æternal Legends, which brings fantasy action into the modern day. My games are bestsellers on DriveThruRPG, and have been featured on BoingBoing.

I like writing weird games. Some of them focus more on telling a story through emergent gameplay, others on using laser-focused mechanics to simulate a specific genre, and still others on exploring a setting and presenting a world for players to get their teeth into.

So why am I on Patreon?

I have a lot of ideas for games. A lot. And to tell the truth I've been stuck in a rut, writing things up without publishing them. Some of these games have shown up as blog posts or sketched-out ideas on forums, but giving these games the time and effort they need to become proper releases costs money, and I'm no longer in a position to do that out of my own pocket and hope they make it back on the long tail.

I don't have a release schedule. You might get two games in two months, then nothing for eight. Without wanting to sound flaky, I am at the whims of my muse. You only pay when I put something out, I'm not here to get money for nothing. Whatever you get, however long it is, you get the game before anyone else.

Finished games will, eventually, go up on DriveThruRPG, but as a patron you get these games at least three months before the general public.
