9th Key Press is creating role-playing inspiration, maps, and supplements

$20
per month
9th Key Press creates articles, maps, and other supplements for use with fantasy role-playing games, most notably the newest edition of D&D. We also plan to offer commissioned maps, writing, and editing/copy-editing services in the future.

Maps!
Each month we will release a number of maps. Two of those will be free to all, while the others are early-access exclusives for our patrons which will later be released for free or as paid products.

Free-for-use items!
In addition we will release some maps and illustrations with a free-for-use license through the Creative Commons program, so that you can use it in your commercial work (with attribution to us).

Supplements!
We will also occasionally share articles, modules, and other supplements; all of which will be first released for our Adept Tier patrons before being made available to any other audience.

Patrons will also have access to behind-the-scenes features on some of our developing projects as well as the occasional article about different aspects of content creation.

The current 9th Key Press team consists of two people:

Patrick McGill (lead content creator/hippy coloring on walls): In charge of content, maps, and illustrations. Coming Soon: commissions for writing and dungeon maps.

Nancy McGill (editor/motivational lasher): In charge of copy-editing, managing projects and workflow, and some content. Coming soon: editing and copy-editing commissions.

Goals
$20 of $21 per month
The InDesign Goal

At 21 dollars a month we will be able to pay for an Adobe InDesign subscription and begin to learn how to use it to up our publishing game.

When we reach this goal, we will guarantee one monthly worksheet or tables-based supplement of 1+ pages for our 3 dollar patrons, in addition to existing benefits.
