About Scott Docherty

Hey, Scott Docherty here. Welcome, and thanks so much for checking this out. I create battlemaps and encounter decks & packs for tabletop roleplaying games. My goal is to give YOU what you need to master chaos at your game table! Here's an example of the exclusive packs you can pick up here if you'd be kind enough to consider supporting my work in the multiverse:

Download THE DREAD pack for free here!

The Dread is one of my latest ttrpg encounter packs. It's designed to fit snugly into any campaign in the likes of the Shadowfell or domains of dread, or in any game in which you'd like to explore what's happening in the darker corners and shadows in your setting:

5 exciting encounters designed to blend easily into the party's current backstories & goals no matter where the party is or what it's up to. The encounters will take the party across a pulsating bridge it might fear to cross, into a circular chamber of swirling bone, around ruins soon beset by something dark in the depths below, before an island with a crooked awakened tree, and into a huge, dark, petrifying expanse.
5 story-enhancing battlemaps that fit the deck's encounters perfectly. You get them in two formats - gridded png image and non-gridded png image.
5 bespoke and terrifying music tracks composed by Filip Melvan of the amazing Tabletop Music Bazaar to match the emotive feels, the atmospherics of each encounter to really help your players get immersed in the moment.
10 creatures of the dread, in other words suggested monsters with full 5e stat blocks so that you have absolutely everything you need at your fingertips.
Print templates for the main & creatures decks, so you can print them off on paper or card stock if you'd prefer to have them to hand at the table.
100% FREE!!!



And here are some of the 160+ story-enhancing maps (and counting) in the map vault you can use for your game, with any variations you need including animation. If you can't find what you need, I'll make one for you!

So this is what I do. I run Venger's Decks - encounter maps, card decks & packs for tabletop roleplaying games. I've played D&D and other RPGs since the 1980s, but am launching my little venture into the multiverse and have set up this little Patreon to help me do that but mainly to pay you back for your support. My decks & packs are a handy tool for any Dungeon Master or Game Master looking for inspiration before or during any RPG sessions!



Here's a quick video all about  what Patreon is and how it works. I believe in the patronage model with all my soul, and I'm privileged that you'd want to join my little ttrpg community on Patreon! Please consider supporting even just a few bucks each month. In return, my promise to you is that I'll continue to pour my heart & soul into regular new content, including the upcoming physical decks, The Dweller and The Dweller Quickening which will be packed with 100 encounters to slot into any urban settings in your game. If you're concerned about going over your budget, you can set a maximum pledge during the signup process or at any time you wish. I never want you to go beyond your means, and really appreciate you regardless!


Although since they launched my little decks have been doing ok, I'm doing this on my own, without the backing of a Kickstarter & funding this venture myself. Your support makes it possible for me to cover some of the crushing overheads that come with running  vengersdecks.com, but also to help me raise enough to collaborate with illustrators & other creatives for the decks, and to develop more and more content. The more support I have here, the quicker I'll be able to bring my little decks to life and then move onto the next set, so you've no idea what this means to me!


By becoming a patron, you gain access to the exclusive benefits listed in the tiers here, including free PDFs of the decks, early access to new decks, unlimited promo discount codes, special patron-only Discord channels, and even the chance to have one of your very own encounters in one of my physical rpg decks!

THANK YOU SO MUCH!




What currency do I need to pay in? You can pay in any currency! This is a US-based website, but you can use any currency and it will be converted automatically into your own.

I don't have much money, can I still become a Patron? Yes, please only sign up to donate what you can easily afford. Even a few pounds or dollars per month adds up, and is greatly appreciated! :)

Can I stop donating in the future if I can't afford it? Yes, of course! You can log in to change or cancel your pledge whenever you want.

I heard something about Patreon needing to add some sales tax to benefits? Yes that's right. The law now says that depending on where you as a patron live, some benefits might add on a very small percentage of tax. This is to make sure both you & I comply with the US tax regulations, but you'll know exactly how much tax will be added before you pledge anything. Here's more on this.

I'm still confused. Can you help me? Absolutely! If you've questions about using Patreon or encounter any problems with the signup process, the Patreon support team is really friendly and helpful! You can send them a message by clicking here. If you have questions specifically about my page or rewards, my decks, or just want to say hi, you can send me a message directly that only I answer.

And what's this all about again? If you're new and want to catch up with what Venger's Decks is all about and what I'm trying to achieve in the multiverse of tabletop roleplay games, check out my website here:

vengersdecks.com

It's such an expensive thing to try and get out there, so even becoming a Random Decker for five bucks a month will make a HUGE difference to what I can create, and from the bottom of my heart I can't thank you enough for your support & inspiration. Whatever you decide, I'd love to get to know you and chat all things TTRPG. Join the Venger's Realm Discord and let's get rollin'!

Goals
16 of 20 patrons
Once I reach 20 patrons, first I'll take a large gulp and pick myself off the ground in overwhelming gratitude! Second, I'll create for you a brand new ttrpg encounter pack that EVERY patron can access no matter their level of support.
