By the end of the year the channel established an interesting rhythm with a variety of videos that appeal to different types of YouTube watchers.
Live play sessions of G1 - Steading of the Hill Giant Chief
Live play sessions for G2 - The Glacial Rift of the Frost Giant Jarl
Since I drew all the battle maps for each show freehand using an old school architectural style I like, I decided to stream these live on Twitch for fun too. To archive these, I created a playlist called Map Drawing.
Developed a new series called 1st Edition for New Players, designed to give a new player or 5th edition player a real straight up overview of the game, where to get the PDFs, what rules matter, class overviews, combat tutorials, etc. This caught on, so I will try and do more of these. I recently did one video as a request.
There is also a small playlist called DM’s Guide, that’s a behind the scenes look at Module and Encounter design, how I made my old school battle glass and other laid back, insider-vibe content.
Since January 1, I moved all my content off Patreon and to my author page, where you are right now. This resulting in a big bump in subscribers and visitors. Hopefully, this website helps players get a handle on where all the expanding content is! The reason for this was I found a majority of viewers were coming from FaceBook to check out the videos, but since Patreon makes you have an account to do anything, they stayed clear, most likely due to the association with money. I recently revised my Tiers to be cheaper than a space-cabbage.
