Commune With The Sprites
Pledge $5 per episode, and earn the right to commune with the sprites! Send in questions for the creators, cast, or crew via email (AMA style) and once per chapter we will release answers exclusively to those who Commune With The Sprites! (Typical caveats for offensive material; also if it comes to spoilers we reserve the right to be as forthright or evasive as we chose).
At the end of each chapter, we will mail you a physical sticker, containing the unique Patron-only artwork. That's one new sticker for each chapter!
You also can add a hyperlink to your shout-out on our wall of fame (no offensive or illegal bla bla bla), and receive all above rewards.
THE ONCE AND FUTURE NERD is an original narrative audio series about three high school students from modern-day Pennsylvania who end up in a medieval fantasy world. We try to poke fun at some of the genre's more socially problematic, silly, or just-plain-tired tropes, while still telling an engaging, character-driven story.
We release all episodes, along with occasional bonus content, on our website, onceandfuturenerd.com. You can also listen to our episodes via iTunes, or follow our RSS feed.
Why we're asking for money:
If you choose to make an ongoing contribution to THE ONCE AND FUTURE NERD (see 'How Often You'll be charged' below), your money will be used to pay for the use of a professional recording studio, and then to compensate our incredibly talented cast and crew for their time. If you enjoy the show or support what we are trying to do, this is a great way to reward the people involved for all their hard work.
What happens if you pledge money:
Now matter how much you pledge, you will help our show get made and have our eternal gratitude. If you pledge at least one of the amounts listed below though, you'll get the corresponding awesome rewards!
How often you'll get charged:
You'll be charged for your pledge amount every time we put out a new official episode. Typically, we release a new 20-30 minute episode every other Sunday (with breaks between each mini-arc, or "chapter"). This usually means 2 episodes per month, but occasionally works out to 3. You will only be charged when we release an episode. You also have the option to set a monthly maximum, so that you will never be charged more than that amount - on the off chance that we become strangely prolific one month. You can also cancel your ongoing pledge at any time.
