Jacob DC Ross is creating RPG Setting Supplements

$1
per supplement
My supplements each highlight one or more types of people for specific RPG or fiction-writing applications. For instance, the first releases in the line focused on near-future careers, such as police detectives and rescue workers. You can see the first supplement in the line for free at DrivethruRPG.com.

Each release includes background information one what the characters do, how they work, their equipment and place in society. There are also story hooks for using them as NPCs or for using your own PC as a member of each supplement's career or group.

For historically based supplements I'm also including references to famous exemplars. For instance, if I do a Wild West outlaw supplement, I'll list information about Billy the Kid, Jesse James and other famous criminals of the era.

Patrons supporting me not only get access to the supplements before anyone else, but the privilege to vote for what comes next, as well as other extras, depending on level.

Current eras planned for the supplement line include:

Near-Future Urban
Medieval Castle and Manor
Wild West America
Samurai Japan

Of course, I'm not limiting it to that. Based on votes or suggestions from high-level patrons, I'll add more.

I'm listing the productivity levels in my goals on a per-month basis to give you an indication of how I plan to work, but I'm only getting paid per supplement, so if there happens to be a month where life intervenes, there's no risk to you.

Whether you're a writer, GM or player there's something here for you to enrich your characters and created world!

As an aside, if you enjoy the artwork used in this project, a lot of it (all so far) comes from Jeshields. You can check out his work over Jeshields' Patreon Campaign.

As above, but you now get a coupon for at-cost hardcover copies of any of the collected works that get printed on DrivethruRPG.com, and your votes now count three times in all polls. You can also vote on the theme of a short fiction to accompany each supplement (danger, intrigue, romance, etc.). I'll take your suggestions from among the rest of those given by backers at this level whenever I add new settings to the lineup.
Pledge $20 or more per supplement

As above, plus send me a photo of you, your friend or a relative and I'll send it to the artist for use in the next supplement. Each collected print edition will include a fiction inspired by a description you give me. Please note that it should be setting-appropriate and I don't do NSFW content.
Goals
$1 of $50 per supplement
At this level you're paying for my initial art purchase and writing time. I'm scheduling one supplement a month at this level. The theme rotates, based on votes from a selection. As with all of my supplements, you don't pay anything until I put something out.
