I come bearing news, but sadly not of a game update.
I will be losing my job quite soon. On the upside, that does mean I’ll have more time for writing and be able to progress more quickly with the game. On the downside, I still need to make a living somehow. I’d been waffling on the subject of Patreon for some time, since I had a dormant account that’s been offline since my last attempt to be a full-time writer, circa 2015. More recently, though, Patreon announced a change in their account model and fees, and also that legacy accounts will be spared the additional fees. That put some urgency in the matter.
That means that technically, I’m launching my new Patreon… right now.
Because of my day job and other real life matters, I’ve not yet had time to fully hammer out the pledge levels and rewards. I haven’t written a new introduction post. I haven’t created an appropriate banner, because the assets for my Turncoat Chronicle -themed graphics are saved on another computer. And I haven’t cleaned up the detritus of my previous patron-only posts. So, the Patreon is launched, but not fully active.
Once these basic tasks are accomplished, I will link my Patreon here, and add the link to the top post, as well as my Twitter and Tumblr accounts. I hope that some of my readers will see fit to support me and I already have some material prepared for patron rewards. Some of these rewards will be Turncoat-related, and others will be to do with my next CSG project, which is still in planning phases. Rest assured, though, that I’m not planning on relying on Patreon as a sole source of income. If you can’t afford to support me monetarily, your support as a reader and player was and remains valuable.
