My Patreon doesn't have a lot of rewards.
It feels lame, I would like to do more, but at the same time I try to be upfront about it - when I spend time on videos or other content, I want to make those things for *everyone*, because youtube and tumblr and other social media make that possible. It already takes me too long to make videos (what with the full time job), and I find it hard to justify spending time on *not-videos*. I mean, even if you are one of the many people generously supporting me, whether for $1/month, $5, or more (in some cases a LOT more), the main thing you want is more Tales From My D&D Campaign, and possibly more TDDC Extras, TDDC Legends, etc. So I've avoided promising rewards which would take too much time away from that.
At the same time, though, I needed to find SOMETHING to recognize people who wanted to (and were fortunate enough to be in a position to afford to) contribute far more than that, even if only for a month or two. The best thing I could come up with was to let these patrons put their mark permanently on one or more episodes of Tales From My D&D Campaign. Now, just adding names to a list wouldn't be very rewarding (from my point of view, maybe for some people that's enough), but the compromise I spent up with was to let each patron customize an avatar to represent them. The basics are laid out in such a way that I don't have to spend much time "arting", which also gives them a certain common design aesthetic, but people request the colors, faces, weapons and little custom elements they want, and also pick the name they want to represent them.
I set this level at $25/month to make sure that I wouldn't be flooded (and spoiler, if a member of The Organization contributes at this level for multiple months, it doesn't make any extra work cause their avatar's already done!), so again, it's really meant as a recognition of generosity more than a reward that is "worth" the money, whatever that means. So I am genuinely humbled by the number of people who have come forward to join The Organization for even 1 month, let alone the longer-term members!
I am definitely going to make a proper Patreon section on www.Demonac.com/Patreon in the future, where I can, among other things, display all the avatars of the current and past memebers of The Organization, but unlike when I make Demonac.com, I'm not sick with the flu anymore, which means I really need to finish this damned episode (and make the next one faster). Thanks again, and hopefully #38 and will be out soon... I'm still dreaming of having #39 out by the end of 2016 (since I had to split what would have been a GIGANTIC episode 38).
