This is one of those bookkeeping posts, to update you about some going on’s here at The Caverns, Dungeons, and Beyond you may not be in the loop on.
THERES SOME FUN STUFF THOUGH! So You may want to at least skim down all the way, instead of just closing your tab 🙂
A little while back I shut down the Caverns, Dungeons, and Beyond Patreon site. This was based on the decision that the original output and creations I was doing had declined. I no longer felt Patron worthy of that project!
I then put everything on a basic hold while I regrouped and put new things into place.
-Nothing is changing with this Blog. I will continue to produce the content you have seen me producing!!!
-The funding meter for this site has been removed. The majority of the funding came through the Patreon.
–Donations are certainly still appreciated to help costs, but funding is no longer tracked.
-I removed the Sponsors page since there is no longer an ongoing sponsor/patron program in place.
-The Donation page has been cleaned up to reflect the changes.
-I do have a new Patreon and while funds raised through that, indirectly help pay the bills here, it has it’s own focus, goals, and rewards unrelated to this site. So you can continue to support the Caverns, Dungeons, and Beyond either by being a Patron on our other project or by one time donations. Of course, purchasing through Caveloot.com also helps!
That’s the breakdown!
So what is your new Patreon doing? DICE!

The New Patreon is designed around creating customized dice, in which patrons will have opportunities to participate in different dice customization projects, at varying levels of input depending on the project. They also are rewarded with free dice, discounts, options to buy into stock orders, and even funding group projects in which a percentage of sales will fund further projects, creating a continual return on investment, in terms of free to a low-cost product, for long-term Patrons!
If you want to learn more about it, head on over. Take a look at the about page, the goals, and of course the rewards! Would love to get you signed up, and right now is the best time. I am doing sort of a soft launch to get things situated, give time for previous Patron’s to drop off, and make posts like this one.
Then with the start of the new year here in a few weeks, things will be getting into full swing! I even plan on launching the Patron, with a random gift drawing sometime after the first of 2018. This is NOT a reward, prize, or anything of that nature. It’s simply something I want to do, above and beyond any rewards to say thank you, celebrate the new Patron, and frankly because it’s just fun to do. There will be no charges associated with it, and even shipping will be covered.
Not interested in signing up as a Patron but like the idea of buying some customized dice, maybe as a Christmas gift?
Take one of our flyers! Patrons get opportunities to purchase customized dice at discounts at various levels, however Caveloot.com does also take orders with anyone to help them realize their customized dice project for their unique occasion, on a retail basis!
You still here? Wow!
Have a Movie!
Anyone that donates a $1.00 or more or that is a Patron is entered into the next drawing. After that drawing, you would need to donate again or remain a Patron to qualify for the following one. This is not anything I have set up as a reward perk, but rather something I am doing to show my appreciation.
This month I did the drawing much later in the month than normal, and so decided to do two!
Given away to our winners, Indi Martin and The Hearth of Britannia were a “Scales” and a “Fireball or Tears” customized D6 die. Prizes were donated by Caveloot.com and can be purchased from the store.
This is the first time I am letting this tidbit out, but I do plan on something extra special as a yearly giveaway in December this year 🙂
Until next post, peace my readers!
Something new The Caverns, Dungeons, and Beyond will be doing starting April of this year, is a monthly dice giveaway. At the beginning of each month (on the first or as quickly after as I am able), I will be doing a random drawing of all my $1.00+ Patrons and anyone that donated a $1.00 or more since the previous drawing.
One winner each month, chosen at random, will be shipped no charge (including international), a featured customized die.
To be eligible for April’s drawing you need to either be a Patron when I do the drawing or donate a $1.00 or more between now and then.
An image of the die being given away that month will be included with the winner’s announcement. Yes, you are understanding correctly! The die given away will be not only cool, but a surprise reveal.
These are some examples of, but not limited to, the type of dice you will see being given away.
You can win an unlimited number of times, but any time the winner drawn is the same as the previous month, an ADDITIONAL drawing will be done with a second die being given away. This ensures that someone new has a chance each month, but you have an opportunity to win even if you did the month prior.
These drawings will be held for an indefinite period. We do not anticipate stopping this anytime soon, but when we do decide to, will give a months notice.
Don’t want to take your chances with luck but want to get your hand on the dice we give away? FEAR NOT!
All of the dice in this post are available for sale with the exception of those shown in the featured image, at Caveloot.com. Those in the featured image will also be available for sale at Caveloot.com shortly, as they become available.
The support I get from my Patrons and Donators means a lot, and I am happy to find another way to show that!
Already fully funded with 7 more days to go, at over a Million Dollars, this game has a following already!
Become an Olympian God and fight beside the greatest heroes and monsters to ever live in this beautiful miniatures board game.
$99.00 gets you the most basic pledge which is called the “God Pledge” which may seem a lot, but you really need to take a look at what you are getting! $99.00 for a gigantic miniature plus another 69 (good number!) miniatures, is one heck of a deal in my book.. Wait, AND you get an awesome game? I see why this is funded already!
