Last Micro-Adventure of 2015
It has been a fantastic year for my Patreon campaign. I started 2015 with 28 patrons and ended the year with 66. A lot of good people who have supported me in the past and present. It's been an interesting exercise creating these. Because of the limited size I've had to become more economical with my words. I've toyed with more mapping techniques and different ways to scan and alter maps. And I got to play with different types of layout to see what works and what doesn't. It's been a real education. In 2015 I completed 24 micro-adventures and 7 micro-locations.
Secrets of the Ancient Mine is my 40th micro-adventure released on Patreon. My $5 patrons and above will receive the adventure with to cardstock sheet folded in a faux-zine look. The inside of the cover is the big map and the second sheet is the adventure. I was going to go with a regular sheet of paper, but I liked the feel and look of the two cardstock pieces.
Also this month patrons at the $2.50 level and above get a laminated copy of the Broken Bridge Inn. The picture shows the uncut sheets. They'll be processed over the weekend.
Anyone can click on the links and download the PDF for free, but if you want a print version then join in the fun. While I share nearly everything I create for free, I sometimes add exclusive content for my patrons.
Enough of that. Time for the bookstore and more writing.
