  1. Love the Raging Swan products, I’m new to the family, but there’s just SO much good stuff you’ve put out. Your free resources are fantastic and amazing. Thank you for creating them.

    Because of the bounty of quality stuff here, I am faced with a problem of riches – how do I organize all these products and information? Do you have any recommendations on this? I now have some PDF adventures, PDF encounters, PDF dressings, and then links on the Free Resources page, plus the Gloamhold book in the mail…

    I guess here’s my problem – I can’t remember what there is, where it is, to figure out when to use it. I’m new to organizing my game on a laptop, I used to do it all in a folder with paper, but that’s no longer feasible. What are some hints on virtual GM organization? That’s what would help me!

    • It’s funny that such a straightforward subject could garner an entire post worth of ideas. But as I sat thinking about it, I realize that there is at least a post worth of information that could be presented.

      If you’ll allow me, though, here’s what I do:

      I have a “Game Stuff” folder on a separate hard drive (backups, people! BACKUPS!).

      In Game Stuff I have sub-folders with different publishers. So, Raging Swan, Frog God Games, Paizo, Small Niche Games, etc.. Sometimes I stop there. For Raging Swan, I’ll further sub-divide into “Adventures”, “Villages”, “Tribes” and “Dungeon Dressing.” There’s more, but you get the idea. Print files get sub-filed again, so to find my Wolverton print file, I go to Game Stuff/Raging Swan/Villages/Print Files.

      So if I want an adventure, I know what type each publisher puts out, and I can go to that publisher’s folder. I have a good memory, so my organization is based on what I have rather than what it is (I don’t need to buy two pdf’s of Raging Swan’s stuff, as awesome as it is!).

      I had tried a system where “adventures” got put into a folder, while other subjects get shunted to their respective “subject folders” but I was maintaining both and it was just too difficult.

      • Thank you for his comprehensive response. It’s jolly useful to get a feel for other people’s storage systems. I suspect mine is not optimal, so I particularly enjoyed your comment. Thanks again.

  2. Not sure if I am actually answering the question here but…

    I would like more NPC books and stuff in the 100% crunch line.

    That’s the most useful material for me. Building monsters with levels takes an awful long time and is quite fiddly. I’d especially love to see NPCs and monsters with some occult class levels and levels in other classes that are poorly represented generally.

    Of course, this is coming from someone in the pathfinder realm.

  3. Adding from a Facebook comment so I don’t lose it:

    Something to help a post-Shadowed Keep sandbox where the PCs claim the keep.

  4. I spend to much time on individual treasure lists;) Would like an easy way to keep it fresh. Your mundane Items are a great help. Something along the lines of 20 individual goblin treasure etc.
    We love your products at our table.

    • I’ve been pondering such a product for sometime, so thank you for mentioning it!

      (And–of course–thank you for the kind words!)

  5. I would like a “20 Things” type simple yet interesting (20 plot hooks) for each player class even race, especially for exotic & monster manual playable characters. In the style of “Loot” & the “Dressing” series of inspirational DM charts.
    & tools.

    • Can you explain a bit more on this? Do you mean hooks to start an adventuring life? Or side quest hooks or something else (perhaps background hooks)?

  6. 20 Things that happen during a Forest battle, Desert battle, River battle….something to help me create dynamic combat environments on the fly.
