About Raging Swan Press

Being a GM should be as fun and stress-free as possible. Sometimes, though, life gets in the way and you don't have enough time to prepare for the game.

Our books and supplements 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, sourcebooks and supplements designed to make running your campaign easier, less stressful and more fun.

We craft GM Resources compatible with:

  • 5e
  • Pathfinder 1st Edition
  • Pathfinder 2nd Edition
  • OSR systems
  • System Neutral 

Our books 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 on the things important to you.



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 5e, Pathfinder 1st Edition, Pathfinder 2nd Edition and System Neutral editions. As a patron of the $2 or higher pledge level, you get all four versions, as a thank you for your support.
  • Week 3: A Dungeon Dressing supplement in 5e, Pathfinder 1st Edition, Pathfinder 2nd Edition and OSR 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 final 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.

Occasionally, in the first week of the month we release an additional supplement in a vein similar to weeks 2 or 3.

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:

  • 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 DriveThruRPG. 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.


Goals
97% complete
When we reach this level of funding, we'll pay our freelancers a minimum of 13 cents a word.
