It's almost the end of 2019! As we say goodbye to our first year in production, we leave you with one final news update.
Patreon Tiers Revealed
The Patreon is officially live and ready for business! As a special bonus in December, we are going to release two of the Campfire episodes and one of our pre-generated adventure modules at no charge! The module will be a copy of the "Temple of the Lizardfolk" adventure that's based on the Episode 3 & 4 dungeon. You know, the one where the gang rescued Vantajar from the swamp temple after they put the blood back in. Anyone who joins in 2019 will receive special "OG Patron" status, which will earn you special benefits and rewards in the future!
$1, $3, $5 or more per month
We realize people have different financial situations, so we have created the Comfortable Sigh tier with three different donation levels so you can choose the price that fits your budget. We appreciate the support you give us no matter what. Thank you.
Benefits at this tier include:
$10 or more per month
You have surprised us with your kindness and support, and that deserves a show of thanks. At this tier you'll unlock a few monthly benefits as well as a quarterly bonus. This will be delivered at the end of each quarter (March, June, September, December).
$20 or more per month
Our minds have been blown! This level of support is the stuff of legend, and you run the risk of melting our eyeballs out of their sockets with your pure awesome sauce. In an effort to appease the beast that is your hunger for more Shocking Gasp, we offer several mega quarterly rewards. These will be delivered at the end of each quarter (March, June, September, December).
Our TeePublic store will be having a continuous sale from December 1st through December 18th! All items will be up to 35% off during that time. This is the perfect chance to buy your grandma that Tilly sweatshirt she's always wanted, or to get ahead of 2020's hot fashion trends by securing your Scott the Dungeon Heckler iPhone case now.
D&D News Article
This article really warms us because it not only highlights our favorite tabletop game, it suggests that humans are using the game to reconnect in a way that doesn’t involve a phone or an app. Additionally, D&D has been therapeutically helpful in casting heal on those who struggle with social anxiety, autism, and ADHD. With the addition of the 5e ruleset, the game has become more accessible to a wider audience. It truly is a wonderful game and one of the things we look forward to in our lives.
