Sad news today, folks. Due to a variety of strenous circumstances, we are shutting down our Patreon indefinitely, so we as individuals can better focus on and provide for ourselves and our families amid this global crisis. Covid19 has affected countless people across the world, in extremely difficult ways - myself included. The decision to close down Patreon has not been an easy one, but it is imperative that I focus on making choices that aid me in caring for my little boy, without sacrificing important time and energy when so much is at stake - and enjoyable as running Homebrew Inn has been, it does indeed take a lot of time, effort and money to do so. Both Ming and Micah are supportive of the decision to close as well, disappointing though it is.
We have had a great run however, and sad as it is that it has come to an end for now - we are extremely grateful to have had your support along the way. We all hope that through our effort and creation, we have brought you moments of joy, excitement and most of all, fun. That's what D&D is about, and the reason we ever embarked on this journey in the first place.
Though Homebrew Inn comes to a close, our love of D&D is unconditional - and we shall continue to play, share and create in our own separate ways. I would like to heartily thank Micah Watt. He was brave enough to jump aboard when times were hard, and I thank him from the bottom of my heart. Micah still runs Pyromaniac Press - creating awesome adventures - I heartily suggest you check him out if you're looking for something ready to run: https://pyromaniacpress.com/
Ming, who I first started this journey with - is a good friend of mine. He has been patient and a pillar of logical thinking that I've been able to throw myself against in times of great stress and anxiety, and rely on to keep things running smoothly. As someone who can't see the trees for the forest, Ming is an awesome dude to have around. Ming has mentioned to me that he is looking at streaming and Youtube as a hobby, but hasn't decided yet. Whatever form that takes, we wish him all the luck and success - he deserves it.
As for me, I will be focusing on being a good dad. My little man is my everything, and the reason I strive to be a great artist. One day, when he's older, I hope to be able to hand him a copy of the Player's Handbook, and say "Look, your daddy drew this!" To that end, I will continue honing my skills, practicing and taking on commission work. If you so desire, you can follow my journey here: www.instagram.com/alexsturdee
I am so grateful for everyone's support - some of you even followed me before Homebrew Inn. I actually cannot thank any of you enough for all you have done. I have learned so much along the way, and will continue to use the skills and knowledge I have acquired thanks to your support.
Thank you again, to every single one of you. Within the next week or two, we will be unlocking the content we have made since we first started - we see no reason to keep it locked to a small population, and would rather see it shared amongst the community. Please be patient with us as we do, we have quite a bit going on at the moment. We love you all, and we hope to see you on the next step of our respective journeys, wherever they shall take us.
With all our love, thanks and kindness,
-Alex Sturdee, of Homebrew Inn
