As you may have noticed, 2019 is hurtling toward us. This means it’s time for some sustained and furious plotting at Raging Swan Press’s Planar HQ.
To better plot our 2019 release schedule I turned to the heroic members of our Patreon campaign. Our patrons are one of the key components of our success over the past few years and I want to provide—as much as possible—the products they want to read and use.
So last week, I asked them this question:
“What is your favourite line of products from Raging Swan Press?”
And boy am I glad I asked—our patrons’ answers changed my tentative plans significantly! Behold their answers:
It turns out that by a tiny margin, the Monstrous Lair line is our most popular—followed swiftly by 20 Things. I love writing descriptive fluff—dressing—and I’m delighted to know our patrons love it as well! Prior to this survey, I was thinking of cancelling, or changing, the Monstrous Lair line. Suffice to say, that plan is now in the dustbin. As an aside, I’m also intrigued to learn that one of our smallest lines in terms of words and page count is one of our most popular.
I’d also been considering a couple of short Dunstone Locations and Dulwich Locations lines for later in the year, but given Languard Location’s placement in the survey results it doesn’t seem like this would be the greatest idea in the world.
I was delighted, also, to discover Village Backdrops are still jolly popular and surprised to learn that two lines we haven’t actually produced for about four years (Dungeon Dressing and Urban Dressing) was still so well regarded. I’m not yet sure exactly how to deal with that last piece of information—I have some initial thoughts—but clearly, Dungeon Dressing and Urban Dressing need to come back in some form.

This Week’s Question
At Raging Swan Press we produce three versions (5e, Pathfinder and System Neutral editions) of most of our products. This week, I’m finding out which is the most popular of the three versions. Obviously, the impending arrival of Pathfinder 2 is on the horizon and it seems like a good idea to understand which of the various editions our patrons find most valuable.
Want to have your say?
