It was a healthy combination of games and entertainment media that sparked my life long devotion to "L'art pour l'art". Gnarly 80s action figures, PBS programming, Saturday morning cartoons, and horror movies between my fingers saturated my young mind, or was it flipping through the original AD&D Monster Manuals? The Fiend Folio was great too, filled with monstrous illustrations every bit as frightening and graphic as David Cronenburg's remake of the Fly, or John Carpenter's remake of The Thing. I apologize to those of you who aren't as familiar with...PRACTICAL EFFECTS BABY!

Using Patreon as my platform, I'll be sharing my illustrations, sculptures, and creative writing, all of which is stemming from an imaginary world that has been existing inside my head for a very long time, but has been steadily emerging more recently. I named it not after the parodia mutabilis (mutabilis cactus), but the word parody, and the tendency of things that are worth doing to have been done already. Not that they aren't worth doing over and over again...

Through the Worlds of Parodia, old art has a new purpose and I have a justified reason to create fresh work as well. Parodia is quite developed in my head, and I want to tell you all about it. I'll be doing my best to deliver content every couple weeks. As a starting goal, in the time-honored tradition of talented innovators like Gary Gygax and David C. Sutherland III, and the many who followed, I'd like to complete a Parodia themed Bestiary for use in the current Pathfinder Role Playing Game (version 1.0, my rules system of choice). The final product will contain maps and details of my homebrew setting, along with illustrations and game statistics for at least 50 creatures!
Tiers
Inscrutable Dung Sweeper
$1 or more per month

Great Belligerence! I've gotten your attention and you have gotten mine! As an Inscrutable Dung Sweeper you've officially contributed to my coffee fund. In return, as they emerge from the addled recesses of my mind, I'll share with you a slew of brand new monsters from my homebrew Pathfinder 1.0 campaign, Worlds of Parodia. Each monster entry will be in PDF format and all statistics are fully compatible with the Pathfider RPG! Many thanks for your Patronage!

Spaghetti Hob
$5 or more per month

Whoa! I'm not worthy! You've matched my childhood allowance! I just may have to do some chores for you, or better yet, you'll gain the reward of the previous tier, and in addition IOU a one-time  8 1/2" x 11" signed and laminated drawing of your favorite monster. DM me your request and keep your eyes on your mailbox! 

Thingy
$10 or more per month

Congratulations! Your awful kindness has inadvertently released a colossal Thingy from its buried clockwork prison chamber... Yikes! That was a mouthful, but you've earned every word of it by making sure that my stomach need not be empty at lunch time. In addition to all the benefits of the previous tiers, I'll mail you a  16" x 20" laminated poster map of Terrene Parodia!

Antiman
$20 or more per month

Antiman descended from Parodia's Heavens in a tiny egg embedded in a comet, but it grew and grew, becoming the androphibic kaiju that it is today. Well, for your extreme altruism you've earned a reverse trip, an all expenses paid vacation at a consecrated resort in the Beneficent Sovereignty of Paradise! Unfortunately Parodia is totally make believe so you'll have to settle for artwork instead. You've more than earned all the Thingy rewards, plus I'll throw in 16" x 20" laminated poster maps of both the Parodian Underworld and the Beneficent Sovereignty of Paradise, thereby completing your Worlds of Parodia map collection!

Oogler
$40 or more per month

Hallelujah! Your kindness knows no bounds! I thank you all the way to the Oogler's Moon and back! Just as the curious nine eyed kaiju looks after Parodia from its trans-dimensional oubliette, so too do you! In addition to the rewards of an Antiman, I'll mail you a printed copy of my Parodia Bestiary upon its completion! IOU that much and so much more! Thanks for helping create more work in the tradition of the original MONSTER MANUALS of Gygax and Sutherland!

Sea Cucumber
$80 or more per month

Great Sea Cucumber! Yup, that's the name of your tier, and you should be very proud of it! The Sea Cucumber is king unto the giant monsters of the Land of the Moops and now so aren't you! REALLY!  Thank you from the bottom of the deepest darkest trench of the Sinuous Sea!  You are a force to be reckoned with in my world. I'm going to do my best to earn your patronage. IOU all the rewards of the Oogler tier. On top of that you've earned an original sculpture of a Parodian creature of your choice! DM with your request so that we may brainstorm together and I can get to building it!
