$25 Pick this tier if you want to call the shots and get cool doodads. Abject Suffering Game Selection: You will get the ability to dictate a game for us to cover on Abject Suffering. Bi-Annual Goody Mailing: Stickers, buttons, postcards, tchotchkes, etc. A small collection of goods mailed to you in July and January as long as you’ve backed at this level for 3 months out of the previous 6. DuckZine: Inside this goody mailing, you’ll get a short zine of creative and critical writing, drawings, and all around ‘90s goodness related to and expanding upon Duckfeed esoterica.
$40 All of the premium content you could ever handle. At this level, you will be able to access ALL of the premium content we’ve ever released (through the Patreon audio stream). As of June 2017, this is a $60 value, and it will only get more valuable.
$45 Come talk about bad games with us. Or not. Back at this level for 3 months, and you will be a guest on Abject Suffering, talking about a game of your choice. Guest episodes will happen once a quarter. Note: This show records on Monday nights, and we will work with you to schedule this in advance.
$50 Big-wig status. After backing at this tier for 3 months (they don’t need to be consecutive), you can choose a game we cover for Watch Out for Fireballs! We will do one backer-dictated episode/extrasode pair per quarter. This comes with some limitations: We will ask that you provide a couple of options for us to choose from. We will ask that the game suggested not be extravagantly long. It will be a conversation to make sure things work out well. If you choose to remain at this tier, your next request will be dropped to the bottom of the list if new patrons pick up an empty slot. This is limited to two patrons because we do a few of these episodes per year.
$80 We need your help picking theme months for Watch Out for Fireballs! Back at this level for 3 months, and you can dictate the theme of month of WOFF! coverage (along with one game that we will cover during that month). Note that we reserve the right to veto extremely long RPGs. See the bullet point above about limitations, we will work with you.
$125 Come along on a deep dive. Back at this level for 3 months, and you can dictate a game that we cover on WOFF!, and also guest on that particular episode of the show. Note that we reserve the right to veto extremely long RPGs, and that we generally record this show on Thursday nights or Saturday afternoons. We will work with you in advance to schedule the recording. See the bullet point above about limitations, we will work with you.
