Does patreon have a way to follow creators so you can easily see their public posts, but not becoming a patron? 

If not, how do you guys track Patreons? 

I see several that I'd like to track, in case something comes up that I would want.   I set my monthly patreon budget to $20-25*, so I may have to do a lot of switching around. 


*and told my wife to hold me to it.

There is a "Follow" button on the creator page, but I have not used it so not sure how well it works or what content it shows you.

 

I just clicked it on a couple, so we shall see.

Thanks. I shall go look for that sometime today.  It was just something I was thinking about in the shower this morning.

 

From the Patreon support page:

So appears to work exactly as desired.

I do this for quite a few.  Basically, any public posts they put up will show in your patreon feed, and depending on your notification settings you'll get an email too when they update.  It does not show or notify you of any tier restricted posts.  I believe the creators can also see a count of how may people follow them but aren't backers.

So I finally got a chance to browse Patreon, and follow some creators. 

I honestly don't know how I managed to overlook that Follow button before.  I guess because I wasn't looking for it. 

 

Thanks to those who pointed me in the right direction, even though it was obvious.

It can be really annoying.  The part that gets me is say, you back a Patreon for a month after Following, then decide to pause for a month.  When you cancel your membership, you have to re-follow again.  Each time.

Definitely onboard for these myself. With the exception of the Thieves Guild set, the last few have been kind of 'meh' for me, but there are several here that look like they will be fun. Alyssa the Priestess and the Giant Sea Turtle especially. And the pinup as always...

 

Although, I am curious about the... cloak? Cape? that are on Siryus and Nymphea. Is that like a magic water cape... thing? It looks neat, I'm just not sure what the intent was.

 I think it's seaweed.

 

I love the Eel Riders, but I already have some Giant Turtles from MMM and I have no use for a whole Sea Elf Army.

But I still love their style.

 

Oh and these are the Soul Cannons.

I suppose? It looks to goopy to be seaweed to me. But, I suppose it can go in a lot of different directions depending on how it's painted. It could be blood 😈 (Sea elf Vampire/Bloodbender?). The idea of a magical cloak made of water sounds like a neat idea for a Sea Elf.

 

Also, no previews (yet) but Mini Monster Mayhem is doing Warforged/Constructs for September.

 

EDIT: Also, the Epic Boss for Artisan Guild next month is some kind of corrupted deep sea creature.

Good to know.
