I've been very fortunate to be able to collaboratively create podcasts for our community's little niche of the internet, but I'll not rest on my laurels. I constantly seek out ways to grow the podcast within the community, and expand the reach of the podcast to other gaming communities. Before the podcast, I had already done this with the website itself for over a decade. This thing we build together, our conversation and family within the larger gaming culture, is my passion. Ultimately, everything I do, all the support I receive, somehow finds its way back into feeding this passion, growing this community, and making everything we do better.

I started by creating a PBP site for Palladium Books' games (Explorers Unlimited), and some years ago added a PBP site for Pinnacle Entertainment Group's games (Savage Rifts), and recently started a PBP site for the Shadowrun franchise (Shadows Unlimited). I'm looking forward to adding value through this podcast to these communities, and supporting those communities in any way I can.

Game on!

People are rarely so mercenary IRL as to ask "what's in it for me?" But it's a perfectly reasonable question to ask what the benefits are for being a supporter. I also LOATHE those pages which cloak the commercial nature of the arrangement with platitudes & sophistries.

There are three things I think you'll find value in pledging your support for:
  1. You'll get access to the Radio Free Merctown Podcast
  2. You'll enjoy the long-term investment into the maintenance and improvement of the community websites
  3. You'll enjoy the player privileges of being a supporter on the community websites

The first two things require no further explanation, but what are these player privileges?
  1. Patron Items: gear your characters can select from which are uniquely available to supporters
  2. Milestone Rewards: these are benefits available to all patrons once a milestone (goal) is reached
  3. Priority access to our Roll20 games
  4. Access to our Discord Server(s)
  5. Recognition of your support via special ranks on the sites and podcast shout-outs
  6. Other benefits unique to each site

If you have any questions, feel free to contact me in whatever way is best for you:
  • Augur#7429 on Discord
  • lloyd.ritchey at gmail for either Hangouts or e-mail

And finally, thank you for your support! Not only does your support help the community, and maintain the websites, but it also helps to keep a roof over the head of my family, and for that I'm ever grateful and thankful.

We're back up to 49 total supporters. 23 from here, the other 26 via PayPal directly.
When we hit 50 supporters, I'll open up another dimension/setting/game for play on EU. Which would you like to see opened up when we have our 50th supporter? Let me know in the comments below!

I'm once again sending out physical gifts as a thank you to all our patrons for your support of Radio Free Merctown! The podcast and its associated sites (Explorers Unlimited, Savage Rifts, and Shadows Unlimited) wouldn't be possible without the moral and financial support you make possible for myself and those who work with me to provide the content you want at the quality and consistency you deserve. Thank you again for your generous support. I hope that you will continue to partner with us in our commitment to making this community a home to all gamers, and Radio Free Merctown an interesting show for all interested listeners.

With warm regards,

Lloyd

P.S. Make sure your physical address on file with Subscribestar or PayPal is up to date!
