Pathfinder Chronicles: Campaign Setting (OGL)

The Pathfinder Chronicles ABCs!

... The Pathfinder Chronicles ABCs! Wednesday, July 30, 2008Fantasy tales have a long and infamous history of creating new and difficult to pronounce words—not to mention inspiring decades-long arguments on how to say them. The Pathfinder Chronicles Campaign Setting follows in this grand tradition. In the hopes of causing fewer games to grind to a halt over how to say sceaduinar (SKAY doo nahr), though, this 250+ page hardbound tome features a pronunciation guide of more than 300 words,...

Worlds of Their Own (Trade Paperback)

Worlds Without End...

... Worlds Without End... Tuesday, July 29, 2008In my last blog post, I talked at length about how excited I am to see the authors in Worlds of Their Own—all of whom have made a considerable splash in the fantasy genre through their shared-world fiction—turned loose to write in settings entirely of their own devising, in which their word is the only law and all the toys are theirs to break as they see fit. I also gave you a sneak peak at snippets from the stories by R. A....

Pathfinder #14—Second Darkness Chapter 2:

A Bird's Eye View of Riddleport

... A Bird's Eye View of Riddleport Monday, July 28, 2008Here it is folks, this is where it's all about to go down: Riddleport, the City of Cyphers, the most perilous pirate port north of the Arch of Aroden. Next month, with Pathfinder #13 and the start of the Second Darkness Adventure Path, the floodgates open and thousands of PCs get set loose to wreak havoc on this scallywag's sanctuary. Until then, though, things look pretty peaceful. Just check out this bird's eye view of the city. Which...

Pathfinder Chronicles: Gods & Magic (OGL)

When Gods Wage War!

... When Gods Wage War! Friday, July 25, 2008In the past year we've had some incredible covers. We've seen rampaging monsters, unbelievable lands, deadly villains, valiant heroes, and awesome dragons, all illustrated by some of the best fantasy artists in the biz. It's hard to compare to amazing pieces like Wayne Reynolds' cover to the Pathfinder Chronicles Campaign Setting, Steven Prescott's work on the Pathfinder Chronicles Gazetteer, John Gravato's cover to Guide to Darkmoon Vale, or...

Character Traits, Part II

... Character Traits, Part II Monday, July 21, 2008Back on June 23, I gave you a preview of the Character Traits system we're introducing in the Pathfinder Companion line. There, I'd mentioned that there were several different kinds of traits for you to mix and match—with a single trait roughly equaling half a feat in power, by picking to Character Traits your character effectively starts with a bonus feat that's tailored specifically to his or her background and personality. ...

How Do I Play a Barbarian in Service to Andoran?

How Do I Play a Barbarian in Service to Andoran? Thursday, July 17, 2008Continuing the idea of the July 10 blog post, we thought we'd give you another sneak peak at the Pathfinder Society Player's Guide and touch on some of the 3.5 OGL base classes that might not mesh well with the Freedom over tyranny! theme prevalent in both the nation of Andoran and the Andoren faction of the Pathfinder Society. We also threw in a few other base classes just to give you an idea of possible themes for your...

Here Comes a Hardcover! Wednesday, July 16, 2008So the Pathfinder Chronicles Campaign Setting book is at the printer right now. An early print copy of it showed up here at Paizo last week, and it looks gorgeous. It'll be available at Gen Con, but until then, we'll continue posting tidbits and previews here on the blog now and then. For today, we've had a request from the messageboards to see the table of contents, and that sounded like a great idea. So! Without further ado, here it is, along...

Drizzt in an X-Wing

... Drizzt in an X-Wing Tuesday, July 15, 2008Do I have your attention yet? I thought so. That's one nice thing about nerd culture (a term I use in the most affectionate way)—we've got some easily recognizable triggers. For better or for worse, there are certain touchstones that all of us in a given nerd subgroup are familiar with (and no, I don't mean lolcats). I'm talking about the big stuff—the media that shaped our favorite genres so irreversibly that there's really no...

Pathfinder #13—Second Darkness Chapter 1:

Gaming at the Gold Goblin

... Gaming at the Gold Goblin Monday, July 14, 2008Shadow in the Sky begins with a grand gambling tournament at a Riddleport gaming hall called the Gold Goblin. The PCs can take time during this opening scene to meet each other, get to know some of the adventure's key NPCs, and maybe make a little money. Of course, no gambling tournament in Riddleport would be complete without some quirky local games—and in Pathfinder #13, we give you four new games with which to separate your players from...

How Do I Play a Paladin in Service to Cheliax? Thursday, July 10, 2008Good question! We're hearing this one and others like it on the Pathfinder Society messageboards, so we thought we'd use today's blog to give you a sneak peak at the Chelax section of the Pathfinder Society Player's Guide soon-to-be-released here on paizo.com. All of the base classes will be covered in the final Player's Guide. Below we've included just a few of the classes folks are having a hard time imagining as non-evil...

A Legacy of Lavender Wednesday, July 9, 2008Next month, readers of Pathfinder #13 will meet Saul Vancaskerkin and Clegg Zincher, two scheming crime bosses from Varisia's famed pirate paradise, Riddleport. But the premiere entry in the Second Darkness Adventure Path isn't the first time the Vancaskerkin family and Boss Zincher (Pathfinder #14's cover boy), have shown up in Pathfinder. Would you believe that both received a nod all the way back in Pathfinder #1?! Turns out that the...

One Faction to Rule Them All! Tuesday, July 8, 2008Rather than spend a lot of time in today's blog wowing you with words, I thought we'd skip right to the brand new icons designed for the Pathfinder Society Organized Play factions by Paizo's own Art Director, Sarah Robinson. You may not know her name, but you certainly know her work, as she is the mastermind designer behind the layout for the Pathfinder Adventure Path volumes landing in your mailbox monthly. Sarah has put together five...

Raising Hellknights!

Raising Hellknights! Monday, July 7, 2008A little over a year ago we started doing this thing called Pathfinder—you might have heard of it. Early on, we decided that its first volume would debut with a guide speaking directly to players, telling them a bit about the world we'd been cooking up. But honestly, at the time, we knew very little about said world. As James set to writing the premiere Pathfinder adventure, Burnt Offerings, I was tasked with drumming up that something for...

Frozen Fingers of Midnight: A Pathfinder Society Scenario Sneak Peek

Frozen Fingers of Midnight: A Pathfinder Society Scenario Sneak Peek Thursday, July 3, 2008Last Saturday night, Craig Shackleton gathered together a number of Paizo Origins attendees in the lobby of the Drury Inn in Columbus, OH and ran us through the first ever installment of a Pathfinder Society Scenario. The aptly named Frozen Fingers of Midnight kept a bunch of us up way too late as we explored Absalom in service of the Pathfinder Society. Our mission was to find the cause of a freezing...

Ten Other Gods

Ten Other Gods Wednesday, July 2, 2008Beyond the 20 core deities, there are those who have not become so ubiquitous that their names and faiths can be found throughout Avistan or Garund. In some cases, this is simply because their worshipers do not actively seek out new members of their faith, while in others it is the deity who discourages growth. In Aroden's case, a once mighty faith has crumbled to a shadow of its former glory after the god himself perished. Beyond these ten, there exist...

Infernal Sorceress (Trade Paperback)

Ferretfolk!

... Ferretfolk! Tuesday, July 1, 2008Yes, you read that correctly. Ferretfolk. ... Under the auspices of Dungeons & Dragons, Gary Gygax created a number of iconic races, whether out of whole cloth or by combining a various different mythological and literary sources. So I guess I shouldn't have been surprised when, in his final novel, he did it one last time. At first, I balked—up to this point, Infernal Sorceress had been a fairly hard-edged and gritty fantasy romp. What were a bunch...
