At $3 American Dollars a month (I'm British, but most of my audience is American, so this seemed easier...), you'll get read access to the Sinister Beard Games github repo and see my personal games as they develop. (Plus, as all my PDFs will also end up there, you'll also effectively get a free copy of every finished game). You'll also receive a thank you in all of my finished games.

About Sinister Beard Games

Hey! I'm Oli from Sinister Beard Games. I wrote Quietus: A roleplaying game of melancholy horror, VIDEOSTORE for Monster of the Week and a bunch of others. I've also written for the RPGs Trophy and Candlelight, and Codex magazine, and I'm the development editor and publisher of Extreme Meatpunks Forever: The Roleplaying Game.

I developed Quietus through Github to keep track of all my changes and make working with my editor easier, and I've just started actively working on two new games the same way. This allows you to see the live development of my games as they go from an initial kernel of an idea to a fully fledged book, so you can see how playtesting and iterating effects the games, and how I take them from a working ruleset to a publishable book. I'll also throw all my layout files in there so you can see how I get stuff ready for PDF and physical publishing.

Subscribing to the Patreon at any level gets you access to the Sinister Beard Game Github organisation, and my eternal thanks.
