Greetings!

Raging Swan Press is imminently launching its 4th Birthday sale here at Paizo. For the next ten days, as a thank you our customers, and as a celebration of our advanced age, we've taken 40% off all our PDFs and other electronic products.

* To check out Raging Swan's products at paizo, follow this link.

Whether you are filling in holes in your collection, or pouncing like a rabid tiger on some of our new releases, I hope you find something to both enhance your campaign and make running it easier.

Thanks very much for you support over the last four years. I much appreciate it.


Wauw! I'd been thinking about going on a Raging Swan binge due to the amazing reviews your products get.
Seems like now is the time :)

Well, don't let me know you! If you are new to Raging Swan, I'd suggest grabbing a couple of our GM's Miscellanys. They pull together a lot of great content into one handy book. My favourites are GM's Miscellany: Dungeon Dressing and GM's Miscellany: Village Backdrops I and II.


I was thinking about GM's Miscellany: Wilderness and Dungeons and most of the adventures. Are the Village Backdrops I & II the equivalent to the "dressing" compilations?

Dressings are mostly random tables of features and events, while backdrops are mildly detailed descriptions (about 8 pages or so) of a specific fantasy village. Endzeitgeist has reviewed most of them individually, if you want to know more. Compilations contain 12 villages.

The Village Backdrop compilations each present 12 villages detailed and ready to go for your campaign. Use then as a base from which the PCs sally forth into the wilderness, a way station or as the scene of an adventure themselves. The various "Dressing" compilations present tons of details for you to bring to life the relevant locale (Wilderness, Urban, Dungeon).

As Nectomental says, Endzeitgeist has reviewed loads of our products including most of the compilations. His reviews appear here and also on his website (end zeitgeist.com). Hope that helps!


Thanks for pointing towards my humble reviews, necromental and Creighton!

Here are direct links:

GM's Miscellany: Dungeon Dressing
GM's Miscellany: Wilderness Dressing
GM's Miscellany: Village Backdrops

I have also reviewed just about *a lot* by RSP (Though I'm ~2 months behind - with the amount of material, keeping up is almost like a job...) -including their generally rather awesome modules!

Especially great for horror fans:

Against the Cult of the Bat God

Cheers and happy b-day, RSP!


I don't suppose you'd consider extending the sale to December 1st (when I get paid)? I'm a huge fan of RSP, and want to take advantage of the sale, but things are a little thin until my gaming budget turns over.

I have this weird sense of it feels like Raging Swan has been around longer yet the time has flown by...it seems like yesterday that I was a wee little freelancer submitting my first pitch. Anyway, happy birthday Raging Swan Press and I look forward to many more years working with you!

Now, for my sometimes biased recommendations-

I particulary enjoy the The Lonely Coast products- you can get the PDF of the Lonely Coast for free!

Picking up Village backdrop I, II and the 13 lose ones (RSP - might be time for a Village Backdrop III and IV - just a suggestion) after making sure I didn't list any doubles ..and also the Town of Wolverton and Caves and Caverns. For some reason Vulgruph's Hollow is not on sale (this may be just an oversight) but the completest dragon compels me to get it anyway.

Also getting: Against the Cult of the Bat God, Dark Oak and Dark Waters Rising, Dwellers Amid Bones, Fane of the Undying Sleeper and Gibbous Moon...I have all the other adventures. 23 items, comes out to several more DL files due to the combined files of the Village bundles.

Raging Swan content is always good, but money has been tight - so now is the time.

Just as a disclaimer - I don't even run PF anymore, this is all for my 2nd ed AD&D game. Conversion will be minimal and the background content (which transfers 100%) is gold.

I will eventually pick up the collectors editions of what I already have but I would rather get those in print version so that will have to wait for now.

Damn: forgot to add full version of Sunken Pyramid. Need to fix that.

Matrix,

My suggestion, just give RS a blank check :) You won't regret it.

RS,

Happy Bday, and here is to many more!!

Blimey, thanks so much for this gigantic order! I really hope you get loads of use out of it and it makes your campaign more awesome! It's interesting you say you don't play Pathfinder, but still get RSP products. I've had similar comments a couple of times recently, and it makes me wonder whether I should do some Old School versions of some of my products.

In any event, thanks again!

Oh, geez, too many good things to buy, not enough money....

Any reason why So What's the Human Called Anyway III is not on sale? (I've some of the other ones in the "character names" line, which I have found quite useful, but not this one yet.)

Another question: the Adventures you have. How long (roughly) do they take to run? Are they the sorts of things that would fit into a 4-hour convention slot?

I suspect because it released after the sale started. I'm assuming that when Liz set the discounts the product didn't exist. Sorry about that!

Three of our adventures could run in a convention slot: Gibbous Moon (3rd-level), Dwellers Amid Bones (5th-level) and Fane of the Undying Sleeper (3rd-level). All the rest are much more suited to normal campaign play.

Cool, thanks.

I too don't play Pathfinder and I too will be making a rather large order (once I get a free evening to sit down and actually buy the stuff). I would very much appreciate non-PF versions, OSR would be cool, however I think you should really consider D&D5E - and not just because that's what I play - it looks like it's really taking off, and in my opinion combines the best elements of 2E, 3E and 4E.

Creighton, I would say provide OSR support if it doesn't create finacial risk for your company, as it is though - the level of detail, background and overall features of RSW products makes them very useful for people who do not run the system they were written for. In my case, I would need to just swap out some stats - but the effort is worth it because the framework of what's provided makes it all worthwhile.

I would echo Matrix's suggestion about 5e. I don't think I will be running it myself (still waiting on the DMG to decide), but I think your products already have a very "old school" feel, so it stands that it would wise to produce content for that system which is being marketed as a return to older style gaming.

The selfish side of me would say go OSR - but I just don't think the money is there. 5e on the other hand, would probably have a better chance of widening your existing fan base - which is always good.

Sovereign Court Publisher, Raging Swan Press

Thanks for the suggestions chaps. I've been considering old school play/feel more and more as I plot my megadungeon.

In case you didn't know I was writing one, here's the link for more information. I'd love to get your thoughts on it, although I've only just started there should be enough info there to give you a good feel for the place.

Wow, just found a new website to add to my favorites - some great posts in there, need to do some reading.

Agreed.

And Gloamhold sounds awesome. And it just screams OSR or 5E to me.

This is a pretty great sale. In fact, for those that don't have the Sunken Pyramid adventure yet, this would be a fantastic time to pick it up at a great price!

From what I hear, the Sunken Pyramid is a way cool aquatic adventure that's received numerous positive reviews. That's just what I hear, of course :)

I thought I should heroically remind everyone that Raging Swan's birthday sale is still on! Until the end of the month, you can get 40% off all our PDFs.

Stock up on your gaming essentials, and enhance your campaign today.

Shop at Paizo or learn more about the sale here!


This gave me the excuse I needed to tag all the RSP books on my wishlist. Plenty of adventures for the kids coming over for the holiday season this year.


I'd wish you had print options other than Amazon UK for mainland Europe. Tax on the books themselves, brutal shipping charge and tax on the shipping charge makes it sadly a no go.
Will get a lot of pdfs, but wold have liked to get the "Dressings" as print. Oh well.

You should be able to find our books on the German Amazon. If you search for my name - Creighton Broadhurst - all our books show up.

Here's what I found searching for me!

Hey, you have them as POD at rpg.now. That should do it :)

Though, looking at what I've spent already, I think the dead-tree copies must wait..

Sovereign Court Publisher, Raging Swan Press

The sale is now over and I wanted to thank everyone who participated. It was fantastically successful and I'm very grateful.

Thanks so much everyone!
