The GROGNARD files has a Patreon campaign to help support it’s development and other projects. I thought it was a good time to provide a general update as new goals have been added.
PROJECTS IN DEVELOPMENT
The ‘zine. I’m in the process of commissioning artwork. The writing is in hand and we’ve put together a plan to get everything ready over the summer. There’s some interesting material being developed, in the style that will be familiar from the podcast. PDFs will be available to all backers. Hard copies will be sent to $3.50 plus backers (world-wide shipping). Hard copies will be strictly limited with only a handful available for open sale. The PDF will be released generally mid-2017.
The Grog-Meet. The ‘zine will be launched in Manchester on 12th November 2016 at the first theGROGNARDfiles meet-up. It’s great that so many Patreon’s have been able to book a ticket for the event. We’re very excited about it. All attendees will get a copy of the ‘zine.
The Online Grog Club. We are tantalisingly close to opening the 6th monthly Grog Club, available to $5.00 backers in a ballot. I’ll be flexible with the time to fit people in different time-zones. It will be a one-off session that will either be A TIME TO HARVEST (the Cthulhu 7th ed open play scenario) or THE SEA CAVES the previously unreleased OSR scenario by Greg Stafford for Classic Runequest.
The collected @dailydwarf. If we hit $120 per month goal, we’ll include a pamphlet of the collected essays by @dailydwarf written for the podcast, in the ‘zine. Richly detailed analysis, witty and filled with the rose-tinted reflections you’ve come to expect from the GROGNARD files.
The Armchair Adventurers Consume Media. If it’s good enough for Ken and Robin … Dirk will write capsule reviews of all the books, movies, TV seasons, longform articles and podcasts he consumes. A fortnightly digest for Patreons only. Unlike Ken and Robin, I can’t promise cooking, but I do know the optimum technique for the perfect Pot Noodle.
The Patreon also supports the important, but boring stuff around the podcast:
Hopefully, you’ll have spotted an improvement in sound recording in the latest podcast. I’ve invested in a massive YETI mike that has sharpened things up.
The annual hosting of theGROGNARDfiles is due at the end of this month.

Thanks for the support!
