From Random Charts to Fantasy Maps
Patreon is a place where you support your favourite creators via ££, $$, €€ or other currencies. Patreon take a cut, but this allows creators to supplement or replace their existing income. Which allows them to spend more time creating the things you love.
The hard bit can be finding creators you love. I have a page on there, but I'm sharing a list of prominent generators creatives.
d12Dev is creating Chartopia
Chartopia is a site you can find, create and organise random tables and charts. They have regular updates, a Discord channel and a subReddit.
Azgaar is creating Fantasy Map Generator
Azgaar is the creator of an online map generator. Patreon updates are rare but it allows him to put more work into the map tool.
Ameronis is creating inspiration for writers and creators
A content creator who concentrates on writing tools at RanGen, over roleplaying games. There are no patreon updates yet but at least you get a virtual cookie!
Rhys is creating Dungeons and Dragons tools
What would a generator with connected elements look like? Where you could click on a monster, tavern or quest to generate more detail?
Other Generator Creators
The list continues with
- Bardic Tales is creating random tables on Instagram. They have a well-thought out patreon and you can find out more from their Rand Roll interview.
- 5eMagic.Shop is creating tools for 5th Edition DMs and Players. Mostly a 5E Magic Shop generator. Support their patreon if you like the generator.

You can also find many examples of geekery on Patreon such as Comic Creators, RPG Podcasts or Games Creators.
This is part one of several articles I will refresh periodically to keep up to date.
