It took a while to get things set up (thanks, beta testers!) but the first chunk of patron-only content is live! Chapter 1 of Bags’ story is out, and will be followed very soon by a lot more variable-quality prose. We’ll see Bags grow up into a very dangerous kid, but some of the latter parts of the sprawling story will have to wait for a while yet. Spoilers, you see.
A note to patrons who wish to access the special content: Getting set up the first time is a two-step process. First you connect this site with your Patreon account. The magic Patreon code (that I’m really trying not to spend time improving) will then set up an account for you here. After the first link-up, you are a full-fledged member of this site, and you will log in through the normal WordPress fields after that. (Or clef, if you want to be all high-tech and secure.)
Each time you log into your account here, it will contact the Patreon mother ship and adjust which patron-only content you’re allowed to see. Its… not as intuitive as I think it could be. But the good news is that once you’re a member here, you can set the name that shows next to your comments and even upload a picture and other useless crap like that.
Some content, like Bags’ Chapter 1, is available to all Awesome Patrons at the 10¢/episode level and above. The full backstory will be available to patrons at the Noble Supporters of Knives level and above. Mighty Benefactors of All Things Sharp and Pointy will be polled to decide whose backstory will follow Bags’.
This is my humble way of saying thank you to all who have chosen to support this project. I’m really enjoying it, and I hope you are too.
