A project that supports indie creators!

All profits from your purchase go directly toward enabling us to produce future issues of Queerfinder and we hope to make our content bigger and better as we go. For our inaugural issue, all art was commissioned at artists' commercial rates and all writing was paid upfront at 15 cents a word in our mission to pay the creative community livable wages in the hopes that they can eventually pursue their passion full-time, delivering more and higher quality content for us all to enjoy. If the project becomes a Platinum Bestseller, we will break even on the costs of this issue and be able to start royalty share payments to our contributors as well, helping create a long-term income stream for them!

Any chance the content from this will be added as a Foundry module at some point? I'm buying it either way, gotta support queer creators whenever I can, but I just wanted to check.

That is a horrific policy. There is a plethora of LGBTQ content that either uses gay people as a plot device (think Netflix, "token gay person/people") or as an excuse to create gay porn in a fantasy setting. That's assuming that it even has a plotline, because some of it is incomprehensible nonsense.

You want to help build the community? Reward content creators who put in their due effort.. NOT just because they jumped on a band wagon.

Also, the RPG genre isn't THAT big.. reward any niche content creators that publish content you find useful, regardless of their gender bias. ..if you want to encourage them to keep producing content you need, that is.

Don't forget. some creators are leaving Patreon after they changed their policy in March, check out Ko-fi and other resources for people to support as well.

An excellent read all around!! The art is fantastic, the articles are well written and fun and the fiction was great. If I had to pick a favorite part it’s either the real world recipes or the fiction.

Was an interesting read. The art was well done, and may favorite parts for this issue were the tavern menus and some of the recipes. Although not a 2E PFRPG player (still sticking to PF1), there was a lot of inspiration both story wise and game mechanics. Action Fiction has their upcoming product with some fun content as well that I am looking forward too. I know other products have touched on it, but curious to see if there will be articles focus on how non-humanoid cultures fit in and some of the other areas of Golarion fare? What are their customs like and life like there???

Great Job I had fun reading it.

This was a fabulous read! top notch product. I'm buzzing with how to intersect some of these sites with where my characters are running in Absalom. I might even try some of the recipes. All the different media surrounding the Quintuple P was a joy: a mini adventure all in of itself.

I'm curious, what are peoples favorite parts so far?

Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
