About this Directory
This directory page contains links to games companies and publishers for your convenience. Updated fairly regularly, as I come across new contact points/receive requests to be added by publishers.
There may be “obvious” publishers missing – however, out of respect, I only link publishers when I have been requested by them to add them, or I have approached them and received permission to link them. As the site grows, this will likely get easier over time.
If you spot a link that is broken / needs updating as this directory grows and is used, please let me know and I will fix it up. If you are a publisher who would like to be included, please use the Contact Us page and we can take things from there.
These links are listed alphabetically to facilitate ease of reading, no ranking is intended or implied by this ordering.

At Raging Swan Press, we believe the GM’s job should be as simple and painless as possible. We believe a GM should not have to spend eight hours preparing for a four-hour session. We believe GMs should spend less time worrying about the minutia of the game and more time plotting awesome adventures and campaigns.
At Raging Swan Press, we craft Pathfinder Roleplaying Game compatible GM Resources designed to help GMs prepare quicker and prepare better. We don’t deluge you in gobs of extra rules or options that just add complexity, confusion and bloat to the game. We simply publish richly detailed, easy to use material designed to be compatible with almost any GM’s campaign.
I heartily recommend all games designers look at this blog, it is full of very useful articles – yes they may seem Pathfinder specific, but a lot of the core principles in these blog posts apply across all game systems.
