Receive a minimum 3,000 word unedited passage of my latest work that has been written for future book publication, One Time per Month.  This is work that is new, and which either transcends work done on the blog or exists as something that has not been discussed publicly.

Wiki Request
$30
per month

I have a D&D Game wiki with more than a thousand pages.   https://tao-dndwiki.blogspot.com/ .   The wiki is free and does not require a donation.  However, I am opening up the option to supporters at this tier to request that I write on specific requested subjects.  I will make a wiki page discussing the subject providing rules if possible, if you so desire.


HOWEVER, be sure to contact me before becoming a patron at this level.  I am an old school DM, who plays a Frankenstein's version of AD&D.   I make house rules.  I am not interested in providing rewrites of 3e, 4e or 5e.  Be sure and read the wiki, and my blog at  https://tao-dnd.blogspot.com/ .  Ask, and THEN commit.


I will write one page per patron per month, or a minimum of 1200 words.  I can expand on  monsters or spells, herbs, places in the world, abilities and much more, albeit in a style that is tailored for an Old School Renaissance type of format.  I will always try to make any rule as universal as possible, so it can be adapted for someone else's world.

About The Tao of D&D

I am a writer and game designer for Dungeons & Dragons, building tools and content through my blog, my wiki, my books and my podcast for thousands of independent table-top role-players who run their personal campaigns on a weekly basis.  I have written more than 2 million words on the subject, created hundreds of images and relevant artwork and I continue to produce daily on expanding this content.  
Goals
