WHO'RE YOU? WHERE AM I?

Heyo, everyone! I'm your friend, artofmana, and welcome to my Patreon campaign page. Thanks for taking a moment to check it out. I hope it answers all your questions but if not, please don't hesitate to send me a message.


WHAT DO YOU DO?

I share my passion for gaming history and the efforts of the industry and its fans. I do this primarily on Twitch and through my Discord server. While gaming is the common ground I connect with people on, I'm very interested in fostering a family friendly and uplifting corner of the Internet that is rooted in values such as the inherent dignity of all people. I pursue lots of different ways of doing this as I find my footing in this wide Web and I rely on your patronage to do so. Find out more about me on artofmana.com.


WHY PATREON?

I'm a big fan of Patreon and its origin of creative people finding creative ways to bring back the idea that creative endeavors have value. Those who have the ability to share their treasure can do so to support the work that I do so that I can continue to do it. Streaming takes an investment of time, money and talent on my part and it's one I have to balance with being a full time husband, father and employee. Despite being a Twitch Affiliate, Patreon is the best way to support me financially as it is safe to use for everyone, has the least fees attached to it and pays out consistently every month so that I can better manage my budget.


WHAT IF I CAN'T AFFORD THIS PATREON?
I realize that not everyone is financially able to contribute. If not, please continue to enjoy the content I create. Show up in streams and share in Discord. You can also find more ways to support me on my website including making your Humble Bundle purchases through my partner link and, of course, cheers and subscriptions on Twitch which can cost you nothing if you watch ads for bits or use your free subscription option for Amazon and Twitch Prime users.


ABOUT REWARDS AND PERKS
In the past, I've experimented with a variety of perks provided to patrons and subscribers. What I've realized is that most took too much time away from my desired purpose or turned out to be unsustainable or not the right fit for me. At this time, you'll notice that there aren't many perks provided. I'd request that you consider participating in this campaign as sustaining the work I do now and pursuing the creative ideas I feel are worthwhile. Thank you!

Goals
$34 of $50 per month
When I first launched my Patreon campaign, I was astounded by the unexpected outpouring of support. As other options to support me became available, many opted to use those instead. There is no denying the allure of Twitch emotes for subscribers, for example! However, Twitch takes 50% of a subscription and Patreon takes almost none of a pledge. Pledging on Patreon is the best bang for your buck in supporting me.

$50 a month is roughly my current monthly cost associated with streaming. Among other things, this includes vital subscriptions, my domain name and website hosting costs. Reaching this goal would bring peace of mind to know that those costs are covered and allow me to put additional revenue toward much needed equipment upgrades as well as products and games to review.
