Since I was 5 years old, I've been a passionate gamer. I uploaded my first video to YouTube over 10 years ago and immediately knew I had a special outlet for it. Ever since, I've been pouring determined enthusiasm into it, without ever expecting or asking for anything in return. 
 It's been a lot of fun, and my online activities are something I will always want to be doing, and will always be doing for free. Patreon means you all can make a difference in helping me do it better, especially with ad revenue being really unreliable. Being able to volunteer to support me in this, either to spur improvement or simply to show appreciation, is a great thing, I think. Feel free to pledge as little or as much as you want, whatever you think is fair is fine, and I'll do my best to reward you for going above and beyond with perks. I'd like Patreon to be the centre of my crowd funding and I'll be checking in as often as I can, and acknowledging your support wherever possible.
 My focus is always on competency and skill.. learning, mastery and achievement - that won't ever change. I started out with "Let's Plays" of games like Total War and Fallout - I initiated the virtuoso/perfectionist "Let's Play" style on Youtube of those games especially. I then moved on to making short (30 second to 10 minute) flashy skill sequences of games like Dishonored and led the way with spawning the immersive sim skiller movement on youtube. I experimented with speedruns of classic RTSs from my childhood and had great success wherever I prodded. I also occasionally do streams and there are some IRL hobby projects which you can find on my 2nd channel alongside other interesting gaming stuff that doesn't make the cut for my main channel. At the moment, I'm most passionate about mastering complex RTS games like Total War, and uploading videos showcasing my struggles and ability to overcome the odds.
Tiers
Supporter
$1 or more per month

 If enough people are giving me a dollar a month, it can make a big difference. As the backbone of my crowdfunding project, you get:

(1) To see all patron only videos or posts, past and present.

(2) To DM me on here and I'll always read and know you're a patron and give your suggestions and requests appropriate consideration. I'm iffy with my responsiveness in youtube comments and discord etc, but I don't miss anything that happens on here.


(3) Save files from any of my games (just ask). I archive my saves and make backups at crucial points. 


(4) Patrons get their own channel on my discord server. You also get a special role, according to tier (you must have integration enabled for this to work).

(5) Also, all donators will be forever honoured and immortalised on this list for going above and beyond (can opt out if preferred):

At around this point, this becomes scaleable for the future, I should quickly be able to maintain highest end specs for best performance and video quality, going forward.
