Patreon Update!

Patreon Feature

As you may have heard Ben ranting and raving on in the Livestream about the upcoming changes to Patreon rewards and tiers and that they are taking effect soon, well, soon is now! Right now you can head over to The Hobby Room’s Patreon page and pledge at a tier suited to you to help support the creation of the content from The Hobby Room including but not limited to: Livestreams, Blog Posts, Discord Events, Podcasts and more.

We thought that we could take this opportunity to highlight the changes and also give you some instruction on how to link your Patreon account to this website and the Discord server to be able to access your rewards.

Strap in, get yourself a cup of tea or other beverage and hold onto your hats this is a long one!

First up, the brand new pledge tiers.

We will take some time here to go through each tier, what the level of support is and what you get as a reward from supporting at that tier.



The $2 Servitor tier is an entry tier for the Patreon, one that allows anyone to show their support for The Hobby Room and projects made by us such as: Pile of Potential. Every little helps when it comes to supporting your content creators and this every time some supports at this tier or above they get our eternal thanks and love.

Monthly live Q&A in Discord

Every single month Ben and Ceri will drop into one of the locked Patreon voice chats where you can join and listen. You’ll then be able to post all your questions you want answering into a text channel specially for the Q&A. This will last anywhere between 30 minutes and an hour.
