What's all this about then?

Hi! Thanks for asking, disembodied voice. I'm Laurence Phillips, I'm a freelance writer and game designer based in the UK. I write tabletop RPGs and supplements under the name Hardy Roach Games, with a focus on disability, history, political intrigue, and whatever weird stuff I come up with while daydreaming. 

I started this Patreon because I love writing and designing, and I want to keep doing it! With your support I can continue to produce high quality work, and hopefully create a positive online community for all, but especially for disabled gamers. 

What's in it for me?

Good question!

Firstly, all Patrons will have access to my Discord channel and Patreon feed. I'll also be a monthly piece of RPG content - this might be a one-page microgame, an early-access section from an in-progress project, or new content for an existing project. These will be available to patrons pledging $3 and up.

If you back at the $5 level, you can also send me suggestions and ideas for the next piece of content.

And finally, if you back at the $10 level, I'll send you a physical copy of the RPG content I produce for this Patreon! You'll also get access to PDFs for some of my previous work, including Primal Pathways, a setting book for Legacy: Life Among the Ruins.

What's next for Hardy Roach Games?

I've got a few projects on the go at the moment, in various stages of development:

  • Ex Gratia - A Powered by the Apocalypse game about navigating the cutthroat politics of Italian Renaissance courts.
  • The Devil's Hour - A card-based game about survival and demons, and a Hell devoid of its once noble purpose.
  • An early in development project about disabled teenagers uncovering paranormal corruption.
  • I've also written a campaign frame for the excellent game Spire, published in Rowan, Rook and Decard's Strata sourcebook
