Welcome to the Pathways Patreon!

Pathways is a FREE electronic and Print on Demand magazine release in PDF format (and as of #56 now Full-color print) that Rite Publishing has been producing since 2011. We have released 68 issues, and we plan to continue so. However, we would like to make it even better. With the hep of our patrons we have added additional articles and can now make the magazine available in print. We are now seeking to increase the pay of this project's creators, so we are asking you to join us a backer today. Regardless we will continue to make this product available for free in PDF, so if you have never heard of Pathways before, go pick up all 68 issues for free.

Our Patreon campaign is like a monthly Kickstarter project with special rewards and updates every month for our patreon backers. Based on your contribution you can help us select who we will be interviewing, what monster we will chose to apply our monster template to, help us chose monthly themes.

I hope you will consider joining us so we can bring you a better and more adventurous Pathways e-zine.

You're interested in seeing more Pathways articles from Rite Publishing! 

We'll be making every issue created for this project FREE when we release it. If we were to put a price tag on each one, it'd be about $5-$6. Thank you for putting your faith in us in advance! We'll do our best to bring you a new awesome thing every month. 

All Adventurers will get a chance to see the articles before their release, previews of art, and insights into upcoming issues before the public such as authors, artists, and interviewees. Also, your name will appear on our Patreon Supporter page in pathways.

Your big gesture of support for Pathways is a big deal to us! 


I will consult our Insiders on the trajectory for the monster template we do each issue. What sorts of articles do you want to see? Which artists and writers from our list of options do you want us to work with? Which ideas should we move to the top of the list?

As a Pathways Insider, you will guide the future of the E-zine by advising us as we build our docket. We'll ask you to vote on monsters, pitches, and other conceptual elements as we consider our options, and we'll ask you for suggestions on the sorts of articles you'd like to see, the folks you'd like to see us interview, and so on. If you really like to see how the creative direction of Pathways is handled behind the scenes — as well as be a part of it — this is the reward level for you.

And like every Adventurer, you will get a chance to see the edited text of our adventures before they goes into art and layout, often weeks before the final product is released to the world.


Also, your name will appear on our Patreon Supporter page in pathways.
