When I first started my channel, I never expected the overwhelming support. I wanted to keep raising the quality-level of what I create - but that means videos take longer to make. Whether it be researching or so... so much editing. It also means using better equipment and props... which costs $$$.

Currently, with the way YouTube works, pumping out easy-to-make and quick content is better supported and you're more rewarded for it. I'm hoping to keep making high quality content, and the type of content I hope you'd be excited to view. Additionally, with the "Ad-pocalypse" my videos are randomly "hit", and while I've (so-far) successfully disputed all of them, it's still problematic.

On average:
- 20-40 hours per Lore Video
- 40 hours per "Who Made" video
- 100-200 hours per "Chronicles of Gaming" video
- 100-200 hours per "Super Show" video

Typical editing timeline:


If you'd like to support me, I hope you'll consider pledging. Anything helps and goes a long a way. You can also be a large part of voting for the next video of certain video series, and potentially more in the future. Remember, this is COMPLETELY OPTIONAL.

Thank you so much - seriously. Life ain't so scary with all of you.
With this sort of stability, I'll be able to produce more regular content.
