Hey there, I'm Michael Coorlim. I write novels, produce podcasts, and design tabletop RPG materials. I've been doing the self-employed professional creative thing for around eight years now, with varying degrees of success, satisfaction, and sustainability.

Taoscordian Games is the brand under which I'll be releasing digital game and tabletop projects. I've been dabbling in game dev since I was in grade school, and have done some freelance game writing in the past, but through Taoscordian I'll be making a concentrated effort to produce and release content on a regular basis.

Patrons supporting at the $3 level will get copies ahead of the official release. $5 Patrons will have beta-testing access to special development builds.

Why Patreon?

I make a little pocket change from my games, but most of my income is based entirely on the sales of my books, which can fluctuate quite a bit month-to-month. Some months I crack four figures, others I barely break three - it's a roller coaster made of terror and income insecurity. Patreon offers me an island of stability amid all the chaos - however my sales run that month, I know I have a guaranteed steady income from those who believe in me.

What are you working on?

This September I'll be a featured guest at the Chicago Steampunk Expo, so in addition to other projects I'm trying to finish work on a Galvanic Century RPG setting book. I'm also working on a supplementary interactive fiction game - the prototype is in Twine, but the final release will be in Ink and Unity.
Tiers
Early Bird
$3 or more per month

Patrons who offer at least $3 per month in support will get copies of everything upon release. They will also get access to public builds one iteration in advance; if I release public version 0.3, you're already getting 0.4.

Super Supporters
$5 or more per month

$5+ patrons will get early releases a month before $3 patrons,  along with digital wallpaper created from commissioned art. You'll also have access to polls when I solicit supporter input.

Paperback Patron
$10 or more per month

Ten dollar supporters get the above benefits, plus:

* Credited in the final release

* Access to teaser previews of commissioned artwork

* Paperback copies of ttrpg products released in that format

Hardcover Hero
$25 or more per month

Twenty-five dollar supporters get the above, but instead of a paperback, they get a hardcover, where applicable.

Amazing Advocate
$100 or more per month

Oh geez, that's generous. You get all the above rewards, first billing in the credits, and I'll name something in some game or another after you.

Goals
$0 of $100 per month
Once we have $100 worth of support I can double the time spent developing games. We progress faster and see releases more often.
