For me DIY RPG Productions isn’t about making money (although all of this is very humbling); It’s a constant gnawing fire in my gut; a spiraling mindfuck that swirls through my brain 24/7. It’s the first thing I tackle in the AM (aside from my bladder and the need for dark roast coffee) and it’s what I drift off to sleep thinking about. I could go on about my dedication and drive but that’d be pedantic and tiresome, so no. Fuck that.
What I’m trying to say is this company is me. I want to make the best quality and fun shit I can. There will be fun products I release but I’m not here to bilk you. I’m not going to make filler books or adventures that don’t have a point except to make money. I’m not here with aspirations of planking on my fucking Washingtons. I’m here to do something I give a damned about and am thankful people find it enjoyable.
As I said, this company is me and I want to be clear about who I am. I support equality, regardless of race, ethnicity, sexual orientation, gender identity, or religion. I support socialized medicine, environmental sustainability, free education, defunding and restructuring our police, and de-privatization of our prisons and infrastructure. I’m an Atheist, loud and proud but I support your right to believe in whatever the fuck you want, so long as you do not try to suppress, oppress, or harm another individual because of your beliefs.
Why say all of this? Because I sleep well at night knowing I haven’t been dishonest to you about who I am and what I stand for. Too often companies throw truth and integrity on the pyre of silence for sales and profit.
That’s not me and never will be.
