Greetings, friends, Travellers, and gamers!
I want to take a moment to let you know I have set up an account on Patreon, where you can support me as I detail the Bastards of Foreven setting and get yourself some great gaming material and other rewards in the process. For those of you who might not know about Patreon, it's a new way to crowd-fund content creators, sort of like Kickstarter with a couple of twists. Rather than fund one specific project for a defined period, Patreon allows you to support your favorite artists over the long term. It's simple to use, customizable to your budget, and allows you to get material on an ongoing basis. Here's how it works.
1. Head over to my Patreon page here: http://www.patreon.com/dslironworks. Check out my goals and the various reward tiers. If one catches your eye, then ...
2. Click on "Become a Patron". Create an account with the information requested.
3. If you'd like a sample of what kind of content I'll be releasing, click on the "Activity" tab above the Bastards of Foreven logo. There will be a couple of articles posted there. The first is a "TNS Foreven" update, detailing an event similar to the old Traveller News Service for the Foreven Sector. The other is a sample of the content I'll be releasing (typically 3-5 per month), in this case the Vendian Sky class yacht.
As a patron, when I finish a module (which can include a subsector, planet, ship, vehicle, location, organization, NPC, alien, animal, or adventure), it will be posted in the Patreon feed for you to download immediately - no waiting for me to release another product! In addition, TNS updates and flavor text will be released in the activity feed, even if you're not a patron. You can get in on this for $1.00 per month, for 3-5 releases. Higher support levels add rewards - chat sessions on Google Hangout, copies of the finished PDF release when it's done, discounts on printed products, and even copies of the 3d meshes I use to create the Bastards of Foreven!
Thank you so much for supporting me in this endeavor! I can't wait to start showing you around! Coming soon for my patrons - the Zhodani Chatl-class Leader Scout ship, the PDF map of the Foreven sector (24"x36", with interactive layers), similar 8.5"x11" maps and details for each of the 16 subsectors, and more.
