About Darrell Hardy

Greetings! Let's cut to the chase, shall we?

Who am I?
My name is Darrell Hardy, and I've been designing games and writing RPG material for over two decades. (I'll spare you the list of products I've worked on, but it's here if you want to see it.) I've recently started publishing my own products under the Hardy Tales imprint, and I'd like to do a lot more of it.

Why Patreon?
Publishing quality RPG content isn't cheap. Software, layout, and artwork (especially quality, original artwork) cost money. But with the support of patrons, I can afford to produce the work I love at a quality I'm proud of on a more regular basis.

What's in it for you?
  • Access: As a patron, you get early access to all the RPG material I write for Hardy Tales.
  • Input: What's more, your feedback and opinions can help guide that material -- and determine what stuff I work on next.
  • Free Games: When I publish a game for Hardy Tales in PDF, you get a copy of it!

What am I working on right now?
My current project is Empire of Venom & Silk, a dark fantasy setting for Savage Worlds in which humanity has been overrun by giant spiders! You can read about it here, or skim through old posts on this Patreon to see the sausage being made, so to speak.

Of course, this is just the beginning. I’ve got a backlog of RPG ideas. Together, we bring them to life!

Thanks for checking out this page, and thank you for your support! If you’d like to see more of this sort of thing, please hit the “Become a Patron” button at the top right, and I will be forever grateful.
I'll also be forever grateful if you share a link to this page on Facebook, Twitter, and whatever other social media the kids are using these days. (Probably something with a made-up name like "Spndr" or "TOKface.")

Side Quests! At this total, I'll be able to work on smaller projects alongside the Main Project each month, and you get to help me decide what those projects will be!
