Thank you, fellow Barbarians, and welcome to Just Barbarian Things. We create actual-play and gaming-related podcasts which are released every week. We also paint miniatures, make gaming videos, build costumes and cosplay, and otherwise live in the world of nerdom and geekery.

What are We Up To?
Right now, we are most well-known for our series of role-playing podcasts. In our main series, Fireside Stories, we run and play short adventures in a lot of different systems so we can try them out and decide which one would fit best for a longer campaign. This provides YOU with a weekly adventure that helps you see how a system works and if you like it before you put it on your table.

How Can You Help?
This page is your resource for all of our news and happenings. Even if you choose not to become a Patron, following us here can make sure you are in the know on everything we are doing! Your feedback as part of our community is an immense help and support in making things happen. Do you have the capacity to help us do more? There are a few ways you can do just that!
  • Become a Patron - Choose a level that works for you and help fund everything from adventure materials, to subscriptions, to the hardware and software that makes our content sound great! You can also earn rewards. Want a reward we don't offer or have ideas for new rewards? Let us know! We are trying to expand and make this what you want it to be!
  • Tip us a Coffee - We understand that a subscription isn't the best fit for everyone. Did you love an episode and have the ability to provide a one-time tip? Check out our Ko-fi page to tip just three dollars at a time when it works for you.
  • Buy a Book - Playing through multiple systems and adventures means we need access to a ton of books and materials. We try to keep costs low by using PDFs where we can. We have a Wishlist on DriveThruRPG where you can see the core books and adventures we are looking to include in future episodes. If you'd like, or if there is an adventure or system you want to MAKE SURE we play, you can buy us the books we need to make that happen. We will give you proper credit and thanks in the associated content we make with those materials. You can also shop on DriveThruRPG with our affiliate link to help us earn credits for new books.
  • Buy some Barbarian Gear - We have a store on TeePublic so that you can buy a shirt or other gear that shows off your Barbarian status (and helps others learn about us when you wear it)!
  • Leave Reviews and Feedback - Let us know what we can do to make this work better for you and make it what you want it to be! If you like what we are doing, share it with your friends or leave us a rating and review on your podcast platform of choice! It helps other people find us because of the way that podcasts are sorted and shown in each platform.

No matter how you contribute, we are glad to have you as part of our roving band and we are excited to have you as part of our collaborative and supportive community!
Tiers
Support Class
$1 or more per month

Thank you for showing us that you think we are building something worthwhile! 


You are the background healer; the character that gives advantage on checks; the adventurer who remembers to check for traps before we charge in. And for you, we are so thankful.

Session 0
$3 or more per month

You'll have access to the Patron-only updates for our RPGs which includes:

--Early access to podcast episodes for character creation, character leveling, session 0, and more!

--Exclusive Patron-only access to podcast post-episode recordings.

--Early access to video content including game recaps, GM tips, and behind the scenes.

--Access to electronic character sheets and handouts used in our games.


Just like a good Session 0, your support sets the ground work for what we are able to create. In honor of that, this tier is focused on giving you access to EXTRAS and early content...this is what you help us build!

TechnoBarbarian
$5 or more per month

As a TechnoBarbarian, you'll have access to everything from the previous tiers as well as:

--Access to our Patron Discord Channel with your name in BLUE!

--We will give you a PERSONALIZED SHOUT-OUT on the podcast. You'll get a priority thank you when you join the tier and then you'll be honored at least quarterly, as long as you remain at the tier, when we thank our TechnoBarbarians on the podcast.

--Access to Patron-only streams for game prep, recaps, and test games.

--Access to Lens posts on Patreon.

--Vote on future games, episodes, and happenings in exclusive polls!


Our TechnoBarbarians have that extra touch of neon-noir and this tier reflects it, focusing on the extras we can offer through technology -- the things we can illuminate by the soft glow of the monitors. This tier is for those that want to be super connected to what we are doing!

Includes Discord rewards
Rage in the Machine
$10 or more per month

As a Machine Rager you'll have access to everything from the previous tiers as well as:

--Your name in RED in Discord and access to the Rage Patron VOICE chat.

--Opportunity to design an NPC for one of our games! You'll work with the GM for one of our games to build a character that shows up in that game. While you remain at this tier, you may receive correspondence and mementos for the character and you will be in our Machine Rager rotation to make more characters in the future.


Machine Ragers have that creative fuel we so admire! They go a step beyond in helping us tell the stories we love. They are the Rage ex Machina that can change the course of a tale.

Includes Discord rewards
Dungeon Dweller
$25 or more per month

As a Dungeon Dweller you'll have access to everything from the previous tiers as well as: 

--Your name in BRONZE in Discord with access to read the text channel we use to share handouts LIVE when we are recording.

-- An invitation to a periodic online game only for Patrons and often including guests from the podcast! You'll keep getting invitations for as long as you are in the tier.

--In your third month at this tier, we'll send you a shirt from our merch store! 


Dungeon Dwellers have an impact that is lasting and direct. Their voices change our narrative and they have artifacts as proof of our meeting. If hearing or seeing a game isn't enough, this is the tier for you!

Includes Discord rewards
Blood God
$150 or more per month only 4 left

As a Blood God you'll have access to everything from the previous tiers as well as:

--You'll get your choice of any one item from our merch store each quarter that you are in this tier.


Blood Gods are few and though they demand blood, they also grant life to our venture! We have tried to pull out the stops for anyone crazy enough to want to work with us at this level.

Includes Discord rewards
Goals
$31 of $50 per month
At $50 per month we will utilize our earnings to purchase new products and books. These will be leveraged not only for new content, but to create and release in-depth reviews at least once monthly! Our patrons will be able to vote on what content is purchased and reviewed in this way.
