At Raging Swan Press, we think being a GM should be as fun and stress-free as possible. Sometimes, though, getting ready for the game takes longer than the actual game itself!

We craft GM Resources compatible with the Pathfinder Roleplaying Game, the 5th edition of the world's most popular roleplaying game and more general System Neutral resources compatible with virtually any fantasy roleplaying game. They are designed to help you, the busy GM, prepare quicker and prepare better. We work hard to make your campaign prep as easy as possible so that you can spend more time plotting against the PCs.

We don't deluge you in extra rules or options that just add complexity, confusion and bloat to the game. We simply publish richly detailed, easy to use adventures and supplements designed to be easily compatible with your campaign.

Our products are:

  • Fun, flexible and useful
  • Quick and easy to prepare and use
  • Designed with you, the GM, in mind



At Raging Swan Press we love gaming and want to produce the very best supplements and adventures we can. We want to make being a GM as fun and easy as being a player.



In a typical month, we release the following products:

  • Week 1: A 20 Things supplement. As a patron, you get the book free, as a thank you for your support.
  • Week 2: A Village Backdrop supplement in Pathfinder, 5e and System Neutral editions. As a patron of the $2 or higher pledge level, you get all three versions, as a thank you for your support.
  • Week 3: A Places of Power supplement in Pathfinder, 5e and System Neutral editions. As a patron of the $2 or higher pledge level, you get all three versions, as a thank you for your support.
  • Week 4: We normally release a large compilation or print product in the fourth week of the month. As a patron of the $5 or higher pledge level, you receive the PDF as part of your pledge and you receive a discount on the print edition.

You can check out our Pathfinder5e or System Neutral Edition release schedule at our website. 



Why Support Us?
We'll be using your support to fund better pay rates for our brave and heroic freelancers. Freelancer designers are the pulsating heart of Raging Swan Press and a huge part of our success. But, they are worth far more than the industry standard, which languishes at a round 1 cent a word.

And that's where you come in!

We want to pay our designers (and artists and cartographers) what they are worth. Every milestone reached helps us fund a better word rate, more original artwork, or even a bigger product. This means our designers, artists and cartographers can spend more time crafting awesome supplements and adventures for you to use at your gaming table. 

How Your Support Works
Supporting Raging Swan Press is quick and easy. Here's how it works:

  • We release one or more PDF or print products a week. (See above for a typical release schedule).
  • You decide on the level of support you want to give us per product released. You can also cap your pledge so you never pay more than you want. For example, at the $5 pledge level, you could cap your support at $15 a month so you never pay more than $15
  • We send you your rewards via RPGNow. Even better, we send you download links before the products are generally available for release!
  • At the end of the month, Patreon bills either your credit card or your PayPal account, and then sends 95% of what they charge you (minus the transaction fee) direct to Raging Swan Press's coffers.
  • We use your support to order more awesome, cool work from awesome, cool designers.
