Tracy Barnettis creating games, podcasts, and more!
You're the backbone of everything I do here. For $3/month, you get the small games I write, as they come out. You also get extra audio produced by TheOtherCast. This means Another Black Page, and any bonus actual play episodes we release! You're making all of this possible. Thank you!
About Tracy Barnett
Hi, my name's TracyI'm a non-binary (they/them) and queer. I make tabletop RPGs, produce two podcasts (actual play and worldbuilding, streams games, and I do graphic design. This Patreon helps support those efforts! Not only that, but by supporting me you support my creative partners and help queer youth!
First things first though:
Here's What You Get Out of ItThis Patreon has different tiers for different types of content. At each level you get something cool from me.
$1/month - My Thanks
Every month I'll do a shout-out on Twitter of all of the amazing people who choose to support me here.
$3/month - Games and Sounds
This is the main level, and it is stacked. Here, you get small games as I make them. These are titles such as Bro Hunters or Gasbound. They will be small games, usually 8-10 pages, in PDF format, with all of the writing and layout done by yours truly. At this level, you're also helping directly support TheOtherCast. TheOtherCast is my podcast network. Right now we've got RPG actual play (Waterdeep: For a Few Dragons More) and worldbuilding (Another Blank Page). You get outtakes from each recording of actual play, and a bonus horror-themed worldbuilding podcast, Another Black Page!
$10/month, or more
Not gonna lie, I don't have anything I regularly produce for this level as of now. I'm working on figuring out what I can do to properly thank people who support me like this, and I'm open to suggestions. As of now, you're getting everything at the $3 level, plus whatever else I can dream up. Look for more expansion here as time goes on!
Why Should I Support This?Because you like helping someone make cool games and put them out into the world. The money made here helps support me in my day-to-day life. The more that comes in, the more time I'll have available to devote to all of my projects, large and small.
As well, I'm not alone in this. TheOtherCast in particular wouldn't happen without the help of my co-host for Another Blank Page, Kate Bui. We share revenue from this Patreon. This project is all about equity, so I split the proceeds between myself and Kate. Moreover, everything that Kae gets from the Patreon gets donated monthly to Kaleidoscope Youth Center in my city of Columbus, Ohio. Kaleidoscope Youth Center (KYC) is the largest organization in Ohio solely dedicated to serving and supporting LGBTQIA+ youth and their allies, and being able to support queer youth is extremely important to all of us here.
In other words, your support means a lot!
What Kinds of Games Will I Get?So many different kinds! They're often silly, sometimes serious, and will all feature easy mechanics and story-forward presentation. My goal is to keep all of them short (10 pages or less), and be easy to pick up and play for a session or two without issue.
I'm always going to try and make them interesting an fun to play.
What's TheOtherCast?TheOtherCast is a podcast network of RPG Actual Play shows. We've played Star Wars: Edge of the Empire, Dungeons & Dragons 5e, Planescape (using Fate), Dresden Files Accelerated, Iron Edda Accelerated, and a variety of one-shots (including sessions of two of the small games I've written).
We release at least two episodes a month, sometimes more.
You can check out the podcast page here. And! You can subscribe via iTunes here.
What's Another Blank Page?Another Blank Page is a collaborative world-building podcast co-hosted by me and Kate Bui. Every other week, we take a single moment in time in an ever-growing world and we examine one part of. At the end of each episode we name four things, blank pages, that we want to explore. As each episode comes out, we find out more about the world we're building together.
You Mentioned Streaming?Sure did! As I have time, I stream video games, writing, and TTRPG game prep over on my Twitch page: twitch.tv/theothertracy. I'm still working to figure out how often I can do that and what y'all should get because of it, so this bit is very much a work in progress.
That's Me–Now It's Your TurnIf you were moved to support me in any of these efforts, click on the "Become a Patron" button and join the other awesome people who've decided to help me put my work into the world. And do so with my most heartfelt thanks.
I'm focusing on fiction coming up, and if you want to see it early, we'll need to hit $150/month. At this level, supporters at $3/month and up will get exceprts, behind-the-scenes work, and anything else I can dream up.
