Gabriel is out of the office this week, bringing with him many, many models and also many questions, which of course I am happy to field. We had to learn this by slamming our heads repeatedly into books, and then remembering you can just use the app for rules questions, and then using a mixture of books and the app, and then playing so many wargames that the rules for them become a single sphere of unparallelled clarity with the density of a dwarf star.
I'm happy to short circuit this process.
Hello! I am here to tell you about our Patreon ClubPA. In the darkest night of the last couple years, when we couldn't do shows and substantial parts of our business were functionally illegal, having the Club in effect was a real comfort. If you like the site, I think it's a pretty easy call, because you just get more of that. Your own comic and post per month, as a start - but it also strips out site ads, and there's even a tier where the design team makes cool one of a kind stuff for you and sends it out each quarter. It's a pretty unique offering and I'm really proud of the work they do.
Today, there's gonna be streams until around 8pm, a mixture of live stuff and some of the things we made just for the Club, like liveplay RPG series. Reading the news, it sorta looks like we're getting back into the early part of the Internet again, dark tidings in tech, where the masters of the universe have fucked it up again - and it's going to be on communities to support the kind of media we want to exist. And that doesn't just apply here: it applies broadly. It's worth considering what kind of world you want.
Starting tomorrow at 10am PT, tune into https://t.co/A9BCAQYM4H for a full day of streams, giveaways, and the answer to such burning questions as: "What is Fishbone?" Brought to you by #ClubPA, and viewers like you. pic.twitter.com/T8urbSaOQI— Penny Arcade (@PA_Megacorp) July 28, 2022
Dabe and I are gonna start things off with our customary four hour Sniper Elite 5 stream, but the rest of the team has stewed a delightful, Public Television-inspired vibe for you to enjoy between slices of some of the content we've offered for Patrons in the past. We have more on the way, always more, and the more I can build up the Patreon the more fanciful I can make those things.
