Did you read my first novel, Sveidsdottir? (No? Well go pick it up! https://www.amazon.com/Iron-Edda-Sveidsdottir-Tracy-Barnett-ebook/dp/B00S5BYOXK/)

Well, I've published Part 1 of the sequel, Dragon & Sparrow, to my Patreon! As little as $1/month gets you access to each part as it releases. Plus, y'know, all my design notes, free games as I post them, links to my video game streams, etc.

So go on, get yourself a Christmas present of some epic Norse fantasy fiction on a monthly basis.

New Patreon post today, looking at tradition and ritual as windows into who characters are. 
Official Post from Tracy Barnett: http://explodingrogue.com/traditions-what-we-hold-and-what-hold-us/ Today's post is a little reflective, and does some exploring of where power can come from in Grimbury's setting. I've been thinking about tradition and what we bring from our pasts a lot these last few years. Life isn't static, and

Official Post from Tracy Barnett: http://explodingrogue.com/changes-and-questions/ I've been going about the development of Grimsbury and Maybeck County differently than I've approached any other project. Today's post explains a bit about how I'm looking at things and what I want this approach to accomplish.

Official Post from Tracy Barnett: http://explodingrogue.com/maybeck-county-history-and-geography/ Got some good research done this weekend. It gave me a much better feel for the area around Grimsbury and Oldtown. The setting is starting to take shape in my mind even more. It's a great feeling.I got some Dragon & Sparrow writing done

I've been thinking about progress and how it's not always straightforward. Decided to use Medium for the first time to write about it. I liked the platform. Will probably use it again.

Other writer, Patreon folks with per-creation setups: What all do you give as supporter-exclusive rewards?

I get paid per blog post. Those posts are behind-the-scenes development work. worldbuilding, etc. As I draft new content (fiction or game design), I post those drafts as exclusive content for supporters. Beyond that, I'm trying to come up with other rewards that might interest people. I'd like to build my support some more.

For the reward tiers, I've got a Podcast at $50, a game of Pitch Tag at $100, consultations at $200, gaming with me at $350. As I'm typing this, I'm thinking my dollar amounts for those might be too high.

Anyone have any thoughts or suggestions? The Patreon page is linked for reference. Thanks!

I have a sneaking suspicion that people prefer a by-month subscription model rather than per-item. I don't have any proof to back that, but just the reliability of the regular charges... I think it's just easier to plan for. Maybe that's just my opinion though. That being said, with a monthly campaign you definitely want to make sure people feel like they're getting their money's worth. I put out about 3-5 blog posts a month which is one of the reasons I didn't want to go per-post, I thought that might just be too much for some folks. It even helps me! A lot of what my funds go towards have their own monthly or yearly costs, from business fees to software fees, etc, so I can plan for these and set up my milestone structure really easily. It really depends on what you're looking to do.

I love you and I adore you: A letter writing game
Hello all! I wrote a game that I'm hoping you'll enjoy! It's a queer love letter writing game inspired by the love letters of Eleanor Roosevelt and Lenora Hickok, and it's very simple and hopefully easy. It's fully story based, but has some rules on communi...

New Patreon post up today! Needed to explore some thoughts about how and when to reveal setting information during a project's development. Feel like I got some stuff sorted out for myself. If hope you might find it useful, too. #rpg #fiction #Grimsbury
Official Post from Tracy Barnett: http://explodingrogue.com/setting-expectations/ I got rambly today, but I needed to work through some things that were bugging me about how and when to present setting information for Grimsbury and Maybeck County. If you've been struggling with when to reveal information, I hope you find something o
