Drak is creating Videos

Hello, and welcome to my channel!  My name is Drak and I make YouTube videos about Final Fantasy XIV.  More specifically, I make videos that accentuate the best part of the game: playing and having fun with friends!  More specifically, I document the antics of my own friends in our Free Company, NEST.

For a couple years now, I've made these videos all in the name of fun and for over a year I keep getting asked to make more.  I really enjoy interacting with our fans, making people laugh, and having yet another reason to trudge through the sometimes unpleasant grind we all know as end-game content.  In my effort to do this full time, I created this channel so that not only could I receive financial support to fund the creation and improvement of these videos but so that I could give back to my supporters.  In such a short span, the number of people supporting has grown tremendously and I've been able to live on my own and start supporting new creators to help me with my channel.  For this, I'm truly grateful beyond words.

If you decide to become one of these supporters, know I'll do my best to take care of you while you're here and show you my utmost appreciation with the rewards available.  If not, at least swing by my YouTube channel and see what we're all about!  I never expected things to take off like this, but now that we've picked up speed I have no intention of slowing down.  Thanks for stopping by!
Tiers
Just a Tip
$1 or more per month
For those that want to support but are on a budget, or even if you've got too much loose change lying around.  For less than a candy bar per month, you help me continue doing what it is I do.  It may not seem much to you, but it adds up and it's always appreciated.  You'll also get access to:

  • Idea list!  Video ideas aside from the usual raid videos that you'll get insight to and be able to comment on.
Early Access!
$5 or more per month
In addition to the previous tier's rewards, you get:


  • A link to every video before it's made public!
Director's Cuts and Credits
$10 or more per month
As well as early access to YouTube videos, you'll have access to Patron-only posts on this site, including:
  • "Director's Cuts" of videos! Rough edits of each video about a week before the final version. No avatars, [sometimes] music, no censoring (usually), but typically more jokes and banter than the final versions. 
  • Your names at the end of future videos! (make sure your name listed here is what you want in the credits)
Community Discord!
$20 or more per month
Rewards from the $5+ tiers PLUS once a week, sit in Discord with us during our raids streams (listening only).  The dates and times will be disclosed at the start of each month depending on if your scheduling needs change.  Patreon should send you an email to get your link into the Discord channel.  If any problems occur let me know.


Also...


  • Giveaways!  At the end of every month, one patron in the $20+ tiers will have a chance to get a 1) cash shop item, or 2) a month time card for FFXIV! Just our way of saying "thanks". We'll pick a winner and let them make the selection of which they'd like. Passing to another patron is also an option.


Note* - Keep in mind that we are in the continental United States.  Be aware of the PST time zone and how it relates to your own before contributing.

Includes Discord rewards
Private Streams!
$35 or more per month
The $5+ rewards, and a link invitation to a private stream where you can chat with me while I edit the next video.  If there's nothing to edit, it will become a chance for us all to talk and hang out. :)  Even if you miss scheduled days, you will still have access to the private link to watch over the stream at a later time.

Scheduled Day: Mondays @6pm PST
*Keep an eye out for announcements here on extra days during the week.

*Notes - helps to have a google+ acccount (I'm sorry, but twitch won't let me do private streams), chat will be text-based only to, again, prevent people from talking over each other and allow me to focus on listening to the footage.  If anything is recorded and uploaded without my permission from these, you will be excluded from all future rewards.  I can't have people editing weird stuff and making it look like I die in fights.  We all know that doesn't happen and such slander would ruin me.
Includes Discord rewards
Get Animated! (or drawn, anyway)
$50 or more per month (sold out!)
If you have decided to use THIS much of your extra income to support me and help keep this channel going strong, I have something very special for you.


In addition to the past tiers of rewards, joining this tier will get your in-game FFXIV character drawn in the NEST style by the very artist who has brought new life to our own characters. (Check the post at the beginning of the month to see specific instructions.)


You will also get a special segment at the end of the video credits where your characters will all be drawn together in a group pose with your listed patron name (or preferred name), character name, and world by your individual avatars.


You will ALSO get a discount code for any applicable merch from my teespring store!


All of these will persist for the time being (except the discount code) even if you're no longer able to be a patron.  I want this to remain special for those who continue to contribute to the channel, but I also want to commemorate the level of support and dedication you've all shown.  This may change depending on how crowded it gets and how many are no longer patrons, but for now, even if life gets you down, you will remain remembered and appreciated.

Includes Discord rewards
Goals
$3,095 of $3,500 per month
I'll be periodically bringing other people in to help me edit other video series that usually end up on the back-burner so that I can get out the edit-intensive FFXIV content in a timely fashion. This will also include being able to bring in people to help me with a website as originally intended, and just broaden my horizons altogether while bringing you more content of me and the NEST crew.
