What is 'The GM's Alcove' about? 
Hi, everyone! I am Kurt Brown - GM Fritz. I am a writer, musician, cartographer, miniatures painter, and avid gamer for over 30+ years. I have been making entertaining hobby related videos since 2012, and loving it! The GM's Alcove is the culmination of my passion for this hobby, allowing me to share my hobby experiences in an informative and fun way. To this end, I am constantly improving the variety and quality content. As a solo venture on my part, the GM's Alcove has become more demanding of both my time and resources. This is where Patreon comes in.

My goal is to inform, entertain, and bring exposure to the creative hobby of gaming in all its forms - miniatures gaming, boardgaming, PC gaming, and pen & paper RPGs. Ultimately, to help others enjoy their hobby even more.

What Does Your Patreon Support do, and How Can You Join the Community?
As I spend more time dedicated to The GM's Alcove community, your Patreon contribution helps me to:  

  • spend more time researching, scripting, recording, and editing video productions; 
  • continue maintaining and improving video software/hardware for video production;
  • offer more exclusive video and PDF content - such as adventures and fiction, maps, scenarios, settings, encounters, rules, etc. for patron supporters;  
  • host more frequent LIVE streams of Paint Alongs, hobby discussions, and actual game sessions - which supporters and viewers can also partake in; 
  • host more how-to and Q&A LIVE streams on technical issues to help others make quality hobby videos;
  • host top-notch gaming sessions for supporters to participate in - based on support level - including many popular game systems, one-shots, and campaigns. 
  • offer polls and feedback from patrons to help decide future conten and direction of the GM's Alcove.

Besides supporting my efforts here at The GM's Alcove, Patreon has also given me a way to say thanks by offering special content to supporters. This includes exclusive video content, seeing video before I make them public, and offering exclusive pdf and file content as these become available - maps, encounters, NPCs and items, etc. 

Remember to have a look at my current ‘Rewards’, which is my way of saying thank you for becoming a member of 'The GM's Alcove' community. As a backer and supporter you will have access to exclusive content seen only on Patreon. Stay tuned for updates on these rewards.  Together, we can make this community become one of the best out there for promoting and bringing exposure to this wonderful hobby of ours - be it wargaming, RPGs, painting miniatures, crafting terrain, or playing games online!

Note: game sessions - both one shots and campaigns - are offered as rewards. You will be able to join in on these - limited to a first come, first serve basis -  as they become available.

And remember, you can terminate your monthly donation at any time, or simply make a one time donation if you want.

    Thanks, everyone - Your support means the world to me.
See you at the table, 
Kurt - GM Fritz
