Initiates will also see weekly small articles and the monthly research heavy feature!
Seekers of Truth will also see weekly small articles and the monthly research heavy feature, but will have access to an extended recommended reading list both in the small weekly articles and after the monthly feature.
Collectors of Truth will also see weekly small articles and the monthly research heavy feature, but will have access to an extended recommended reading list both in the small weekly articles and after the monthly feature. In addition, Collectors of Knowledge will have be able to download a quarterly E-Pub version of all the previously published articles. These books may have extra features, depending on the monthly topics and how much space there is to publish on a regular article. (Months with five Wednesdays will not have bonus features; others almost always will, and you'll know if it won't in advance.)
I'll specifically be doing a few things. First, I'll be running a discord for patrons to have a sense of community. This will be both a religious chat and a sense of general community for people interested in the religious history of the Macedonian Era. There are also a few Secret Channels for high level patrons, so if you're interested in them we'd be glad to have you!
Second, I'll be running a weekly small article about an aspect of Macedonian religion or its tangential culture! These will be fact based, but not heavily sourced in the articles for ease of reading. I will have all of my sources along with a further reading section in a separate post each Wednesday to give patrons a chance to dive deeper into the topics!
And finally, the first Saturday of each month will have a long form feature article on a complex or in depth topic about Macedonian religion and culture. These will often deal with complex histories which are often misrepresented in popular culture or complicated issues that require more in depth histories. A few that I have planned at the time of writing are the Import Gods (especially Aphrodite), the deification of Hephaestus and even whether Macedonian really correctly describes the period of unity between contemporary Greece, Egypt and Persia.
I look forward to sharing my work with all of you, and I hope to talk with you soon!
