There is currently a link going around to a Patreon page masquerading as our official account, asking for donations to keep Tamriel Rebuilt running. This account is not affiliated with us in any way, shape or form. We do not have, nor do we plan to have, a Patreon account at all.

The best donation is your time and love. Contribute your own modding, tell your friends about us!
