Hey there. I'm rather new to all of this, but I just launched my Patreon yesterday.

My philosophy when drawing up the project was to provide what my patrons want (in this case new maps) without interfering with the process by over-promising things that would be cool but take time away from the real work.

I wish there was a smaller pledge than $1. I read on some earlier posts here that this was a recent change, and sure enough I haven't been able to pledge for less than $1 even on Patreons that list rewards for less. It's a real shame.

I'm open for any criticism or words of experience if you have them for me.

The domain of the shadow elves covers one of the greatest regions of any country covered in the Gazetteer series. If it were suddenly moved to the surface, it would extend from Belcadiz in Glantri, east to the regions of the Ethengarian Yakuts and the…
