I’ve gone on record repeatedly to say that Patreon has been awesome for Raging Swan Press, and it has. The cool thing about Patreon is that while wandering about the site you can find other rather marvellous people and companies to follow.
One such company is The Forge. About a month ago they started a Patreon to help make even more of the marvellous artwork and maps for which their company is justifiably famed. I signed up immediately. In fact, for me as the publisher of Raging Swan Press, signing up was a total no-brainer.
I’m a huge fan of Old School style art and maps. At heart, I’m an old fart desperately clinging to the games of my youth and The Forge’s artwork has a fantastic feel to it. Behold this beautiful pirate map:
How cool is that? As part of my pledge I got the map with and without a grid as well as the image at the top of the post. Depending on how much you pledge you can have it for personal or commercial use. That much original art would probably cost me in the region of $100.
So–anyway-if you are in need of quality line art for your campaign or upcoming project, check out the Forge on Patreon! (And, if you think I should write a short module featuring the above map, let em know in the comments below)
A Final, Shameless Plug
Patreon has transformed Raging Swan Press (and even had some unexpected but most welcome benefits). If you’d like to learn more about Raging Swan Press’s Patreon (and perhaps even sign up) I’d be delighted to welcome you into the Swan Horde!

Definitely write a module. Regardless of system I’d buy it – you can never have enough pirate adventures 😉
As for The Forge. I’ve bought quite a bit of their art on DriveThruRPG but didn’t know about their Patron. Might have to give that a look when I get a job 🙂
Thanks, Dave! I’ve printed the map out and started pondering some plots. I thin the map is great–ideas just leap off the page at me!
