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.

Gain access to other writings from Alexis Smolensk, who has decided to launch a new blog, THE HIGHER PATH.  These will be writings that are available only to supporters who see a great purpose in expanding the game of D&D past the ordinary limits of role-playing.

Wiki Request
$12 or more 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 800 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. 

Goals
$392 of $1,500 per month
Writing, eating while writing, having a space while writing, having access to the internet while writing, paying for editor and layout for final product.
