If you’re thinking about joining the Rue & Rook Tavern or already did but have some questions, I’ve added some information below to help you with your pledge and/or any questions you might have.
Similar to my Patreon, the Rue & Rook Tavern is an exclusive section of my website where I post art, maps, pictures, illustrations, and more that I don’t share with the public. What you have access to depends on your pledge level. Click here to see what pledge levels I have available.
You are basically pledging your support for my art and/or to receive exclusive artwork & maps not available to the general public.
Yes. You can do so by clicking here to add a little something to my PayPal Tip Jar.
Mostly bills & art supplies. I’m currently unable to work outside my home due to my visual impairment. As this is my only means of income, I use your pledge to pay for rent, food, bills, insurance, & by art supplies.
Yes please! As art supplies are my biggest expense aside from rent, any and all gifts are greatly appreciated. You can click here to visit my Amazon Wishlist to see what I need.
Your card is charged when you sign up to pledge. However, you are only charged for the portion of the month you’re in. So if you sign up on the 15th of the month, you’ll only be charged for half of your monthly pledge. I do this because some rewards are time based (such as contests) and I don’t want you to feel like you missed out. Plus, I don’t want people who sign up towards the end of the month feel like their being doubled billed when the first of the next month comes up and they’re charged for a full month.
On the first of every month (it won the poll by a smidgen).
I have a PayPal shopping cart on this site so you can use any card you wish or PayPal.
Managing My Pledge
Yes. Go to the My Account page and click the “Subscriptions” tab to adjust your pledge level. You will automatically have access to rewards if you increase your pledge, or lose access if you decrease it.
Yes. If you go to the My Account page, you’ll see a section for your subscription to my website. There you have the option of suspending or cancelling your subscription.
Suspending your subscription puts your pledge on hold and keeps your card from being charged. However, keep in mind that you will no longer have access to the Tavern while your pledge is suspended.
As long as you want. However, keep in mind that you will no longer have access to the Tavern while your pledge is suspended.
Getting & Using Rewards
As soon as your transaction is complete you’ll see a new item appear in the menu under the logo called “The Barkeep”. There you’ll have access to all the rewards for your pledge level.
All content on this site is available for personal or small commercial use unless stated otherwise under the description.
“Small commercial use” is considered anything made in small quantities by an individual or small business (i.e. websites, online articles, material packets, etc.). You are not authorized to use these files for redistributed in part or whole for free or for sale as art or part of an art collection, for print-on-demand designs, or mass distribution/production.
Coming from Patreon
No. The rewards are the same on both sites, however, there are things I can’t post on Patreon because they don’t have the functionality I need (like for the cartography course). So registering on my site will be required to receive some rewards. You can keep your pledge on Patreon and just register an account on my site and sending me a quick message. I’ll link your account as long as your email matches that of your Patreon.
- Make a free account on this site using the same email as on Patreon.
- Send me a quick message and I’ll link your accounts.
If you’re on a PC or mac, simply log into the site and you’ll see a red menu bar at the top of the screen. This is where you’ll find access to all your rewards.
If you’re on a mobile device, once you’re logged in, a new menu option labeled “The Barkeep” will appear under the menu button. You’ll find access to all your rewards there.
