About Back Patio Network

The Back Patio Network is all about that nice, warm feeling you get at home out on the back patio—complete with a cozy rocking chair and a glass of iced tea. We bring our favorite hobbies to our audience via a series of podcasts; Role Playing Games, Comics and Board Games are just a few of those hobbies.

We currently offer an Actual Play Podcast, a Comic Book Podcast, and an Anime Podcast.  Our patrons receive early access to our Rocks and Runelords Podcast and extra content as released on our Patreon RSS Feed and some digital posts on our website.  If you choose to support us, thank you, and we hope to serve you well.

After years of podcasting, we know just how expensive it can be to maintain a podcast. There are server costs, music licensing, hosting costs, new gaming materials, hosting costs, equipment maintenance, and did we mention hosting costs? Several of our longtime listeners have asked for a way to help us defray those costs, and Patreon is a great choice. Every dollar raised will go towards creating a welcoming atmosphere and many hours of amusement for your ears.

When you subscribe to the Back Patio Network at the $5 tier and above, you will open a few patron-only perks! Some of these tiers will not generate Thank-You rewards until we are at certain dollar amounts per month. If you would like to contribute at these amounts you are free to do so, but rewards such as stickers and T-shirts will not be available until we can afford to send them out.

One thing we at the Back Patio Network would like to stress is if you are not able to easily donate $5 a month or more, we ask you to use your money to make yourself happy and healthy first! To paraphrase the intro from Waking Up With Sam Harris, "If you cannot afford to buy yourself a cup of coffee, please don't buy one for us." Please tell a few friends about us instead! We grow our fan-base by word of mouth. Find someone you think would enjoy what we do, wrestle their phone away, and subscribe to our podcasts for them! We’ll love you for it!

Thank you for looking us up here on Patreon and an even bigger thanks if you decide to donate to our fun little adventure!

We'll see you all out on the Patio.

Wes will take our Rocks and Runelords players through an alternate play experienced based in the universe created for RnR.  What does that mean?  We'll explore alternate rules systems for telling a connected storyline.  We will flesh out backgrounds, alternate characters, and continue to build the world we have been playing in for over a year.
