Quick update, and lest start with an error on the Atlas maps. I have forgot to make the sea lanes layer visible on some of the latest maps I've done. So please hold off on printing them until I have corrected map done and uploaded, which will be a couple of days. I don't have to re-do everything, just a few changes and then a new export. I'm so sorry for the inconvenience. I'll post here again when the corrected maps are ready.
Now on to another important issue that I forgot to post about earlier sorry about this late post. Due to new laws passing in several countries and US states, Patreon will be required to start charging sales tax on some pledges starting July 1st.
Less than half of all patrons will be charged sales tax, and for most, the amount will be very small. For example, sales tax rates in the US range from 4% to 11%, so on a $5 pledge, that would be between 20 cents and 55 cents.
Whether or not you will be charged sales tax depends on your location, and what is considered taxable there. Not every pledge is taxable, not all benefits are taxable in every location, and sometimes only a fraction of a pledge will be taxable. The money that Patreon collects as a result of these laws are paid directly to local governments.
I’m working closely with Patreon to ensure I’m able to save you as much money as possible when it comes to sales tax - which is not something that’s possible with other platforms.
If you’re in a location where sales tax will be required, you should expect to receive an email from Patreon with more information about this very soon, but I wanted to make sure you were aware of these changes way ahead of July 1st when they go into effect.
If you have questions, you should be able to find answers here. If you still have questions, the best place to get an answer is from Patreon’s customer support team, here.
Now onto more fun stuff - Virtual Greyhawk Con!
This convention is a collaboration between a number of Twitch Streamers and other Greyhawk creators to get together virtually to play games set in - and talk about the setting.
Here is a link to the con page on Tabletop Events: https://tabletop.events/conventions/virtual-greyhawk-con-2020
I'm going to have a 2 hour seminar, with the focus on my campaign. It will be lots of maps of course but also talk about what is going on in my version of the setting. New campaign map goodies will be revealed, and I plan to officially release the Atlas!
