If for instance, you want to be payed for making adventures, is it okay to set up a Paetreon in a thread of yours to encourage more content for your subs?

Is that legal? Is that okay?

I'd err on the side of caution. I'm assuming as long as you aren't actually locking adventures behind a paywall it doesn't count as a violation, but it's best to wait for official confirmation.

I suppose you could do it as a sort of donation. But I wouldn't recommend stating that to make X adventure you'd like X money. EA tends to get ahold of such information and likes to shut it down. TitanMods website, for example, was removed (or there would have been legal action). Which wasn't commercial at all.
