Ink and Lyre is on Patreon! If you haven’t heard, we had a soft launch for our Patreon account a few weeks. We want to take a moment to thank all of you who have already patronized. Your support is motivating and reinforces the journey we’re on. We look forward to bringing you more exclusive content in the future! While we love creating spell cards, monsters and magic items, we want to create even more. We’ve got some great ideas to help with that.
Here’s What You Can Expect from us on Patreon
Adventure of the Month
We will be releasing an Adventure of the Month series, starting on July 18th with Dorren’s Mansion, an eight room home in the astral sea that protects King Dorren’s secrets. These adventures can be run as one-shots that take about two or three hours to play through, but our hope is that you will make them your own, change the names, change the location, and plug it into your homebrew world. All adventures will come with multiple encounters, DM notes, digital and printable maps and will feature our unique magic items, monsters and potions.
Fully motivated Non-Player Characters. One of the most difficult things for me personally as a DM is creating NPCs who feel real, and we want to address that concern for many of you. Each one of these is going to feature a beautiful portrait illustrated by our wonderful artist, Lauren Hodges. All NPCs will have background, goals, motivations, and magical items they may have. We will also include some ideas for quests they can send adventurers on. Our goal here is to create NPCs you could build entire story arcs around and we can’t wait to see what you do with them.
Expanding Homebrew Content
New Homebrew content for your game! This means new Races, Subclasses, Spells, Magic Items, Monsters, Ambiance Music, Origins, Backgrounds and Potions for your players to try! Exclusive printable cards and full pages of content will be available exclusively on our Patreon. We will also be packaging much of this content up into Decks of Cards that will be professionally printed and sent to you (Future goal)!
Finally, we’re excited to announce our weekly D&D podcast! We won’t be playing D&D like Critical Role. Instead, our focus will be on advice for DM’s, creating and developing your world, and what’s going on in the community as a whole. Lauren and I will host but we may occasionally bring in some of our players or guests from time to time.
We’re so excited about this next step in our journey, and are thrilled to announce our first Patreon goal: The Ink and Lyre Founder's pin. This is a limited edition pin. We’ll be sending these small enamel pins to our first 100 Patrons ONLY. Our founders hold a special place in our hearts. So, not only will they receive a pin, but they will be immortalized on a page of our website forever! This is just year one. We have many more big ideas we’d like to explore as we grow. So, if Ink and Lyre sounds like something you’d like to be apart of follow the Link below! Don't miss out on becoming an Ink and Lyre Founder!
