Shining A Spotlight On RPG Patreons

Patreon these days is a fundamental part of the RPG creator industry, whether for game rules, art, maps, models, podcasts, or more. As I promised a few days ago, this is a list of tabletop RPG-related Patreons. I'm doing this in the wake of Patreon's recent damaging actions, in the hope that this might help some of them get back on track again, even if only by a little bit. Please check them out, and if you can please consider backing one or more of these Patreons!

I asked for links here on EN World, and on Twitter, and a lot of you responded - thank you! Don't worry - if you have an RPG Patreon, and you didn't see the call-out, or you did and it's not here, let me know in the comments and I'll add it. There's a whole mix of stuff here, so there's something for everyone! One thing I've discovered is that the RPG community on Patreon is larger than I ever imagined!

Some of you may be wondering how Patreon works? It's like Kickstarter, but for regular subscriptions. Creators ask for recurring donations, often as small as a dollar, to continue making their awesome content. Sometimes this is a podcast, or a blog, or regular gaming content, or art; sometimes they ask for monthly donations, and other times "per item". Patreon has become an important part of the RPG community, and I heartily encourage supporting your favourite creators on the platform.

Awesome post and information!
I'd like to add mine:
I make mini adventures and side treks with the For Gold & Glory ruleset---a retroclone of 2nd edition Dungeons and Dragons. Easy to convert for 1st edition as well. Can easily plug these adventures anywhere. Free example you can download on the site.
I make my own maps and support artists.
