May 8, 2020: Supportus Patronus!
These Patreons are as diverse as their creators – typically, they share art, blogs, and what-have-you with their supporters. Usually there are freebies . . . but that's not the big reason to join a Patreon. If there's someone here whose work you especially like, support them! It will give them more time to work on their own projects, and more freedom to take on the outside projects they like.
Because I'd really like you to visit ALL these folks, I'll cut the list off after Munchkin today, and follow up soon with a Patreon article for the TFT and Car Wars fans.
