The Ginger Star (Trade Paperback)

Map the Stars

Map the Stars Tuesday, September 30, 2008It's not often that I get to show off Planet Stories art besides the covers, but I wanted to take a minute and point out that in addition to a killer story, Leigh Brackett's Skaith books (which include The Ginger Star, The Hounds of Skaith, and the forthcoming The Reavers of Skaith) all feature hand-drawn maps by the incredibly talented Rob Lazzaretti. I've always loved being able to follow along with a character's adventures on a map, getting a better...

The Hounds of Skaith (Trade Paperback)

Judge the Books By Their Covers

... Judge the Books By Their Covers Friday, September 26, 2008Over the last year or so, we've been listening carefully to what people have to say about Planet Stories, and especially about the books' covers. While we all know that it's what's inside that counts—and with authors like Brackett and Howard, Moore and Moorcock, I think we're pretty set on that level—the cover remains the single most important factor in selling a book to somebody who may never have heard of it. I know...

Pathfinder Module J4: The Pact Stone Pyramid (OGL)

The Pact Stone Pyramid

The Pact Stone Pyramid Thursday, September 25, 2008 In this interior piece we have a girallon covered in glowing magical hieroglyphics battling Seelah and Kyra, set in one of the interior areas of the Pact Stone Pyramid. Well, it's not really a girallon, it's a magical curse in the shape of a girallon, but when the thing is quadruple-punching your face the subtle difference probably isn't your biggest concern....Sean K Reynolds ...

Pathfinder Chronicles: Into the Darklands (OGL)

Where do Driders Come From?

... Where do Driders Come From? Wednesday, September 24, 2008In the Second Darkness Adventure Path, we knew we wanted to use the drow as the primary antagonists. And of course, where there's drow, there's driders. Yet with the changes to drow society in Golarion (and in particular who and what they worship) versus their classic representation in the game, the genesis story for driders had to change. This gave us a pretty interesting bit of new flavor for both driders and drow. In (under?)...

Riding the Wave

... Riding the Wave Tuesday, September 23, 2008It's that time again—time for me to point out that nothing new I can say about The Hounds of Skaith can recommend it any better than it recommends itself and jump straight to an excerpt from the novel. In The Ginger Star, everyone's favorite mercenary and wild man Eric John Stark ventured to the dying world of Skaith in search of his foster father, only to find himself the subject of a revolutionary prophecy. Now, reunited with his mentor...

Pathfinder #16—Second Darkness Chapter 4:

The Endless Night Begins

The Endless Night Begins Monday, September 22, 2008Pathfinder #15 is off to press, and you know what that means! Time to start working on Pathfinder #16! Pictured here is the cover by Steve Prescott for Endless Night, the fourth installment of the Second Darkness Adventure Path. In the coming month, we'll be revealing more about this volume's contents (driders and demons and mothmen, oh my!), but for now, feast your eyes on a typical day for surface folk in a drow city. ...

Two Swordsmen of Mars!

... Two Swordsmen of Mars! Saturday, September 20, 2008While pulp science-fiction magazines had entered a sort of digest-sized hibernation by the early 1960s, the paperback book phenomenon was hitting with full force, exposing readers to a new generation of writers while bringing many of the old pulp classics of the past into book form for the very first time. The celebrated Ace Doubles of the era presented many of the books we've already published in our Planet Stories classic fantasy line,...

Pathfinder Chronicles: Into the Darklands (OGL)

Down Orvway

... Down Orvway Wednesday, September 17, 2008In the Darklands of Golarion, there are three regions. The uppermost one is known as Nar-Voth; this is the wilderness of the Darklands. The races who live here are relatively isolated, tribal, or small. The duergar are an exception, of course, but that's only because they have a bunch of abandoned pre-made dwarf cities to squat in. Below Nar-Voth lies the largest realm—Sekamina. This one's the classic underground warren of tunnels that span...

The Last Home of the Elves

The Last Home of the Elves Monday, September 15, 2008For the last several months of Pathfinder's Second Darkness Adventure Path we've been neck-deep in drow, with one terrible question looming over our heads all the while: With such a history of fantastic dark elven cities, where do the drow of Golarion actually live? The answer started as a sketch on a single piece of graph paper and grew into a tape and grid work monstrosity that would dominate my dining room table for several weeks. From...

Into the Darklands We Trod

Into the Darklands We Trod Friday, September 12, 2008It falls to me once again to reveal a tantalizing taste of some of the terrific tableaux contained within the pages of Pathfinder. Today I bring to you two pieces from Into the Darklands. The first is a bunch of drow and slaves leading freshly captured heroes into a drow city. Lucky them. The second is, well... it's an underground lost-world-type cavern where giant monsters fight dinosaurs. I think that speaks for itself. Have I mentioned...

Pathfinder Chronicles: Gods & Magic (OGL)

The Origins of Gods and Magic

... The Origins of Gods and Magic Thursday, September 11, 2008 I've always been a fan of mythology, dating back to my pre-teen years reading about the Greek and Norse gods and not coincidentally right around the time when I started playing D&D. Working as a designer at Wizards I eventually became known as the gods guy, writing or developing most of the deity write-ups for the World of Greyhawk and the Forgotten Realms. In the last months of Dragon magazine's time at Paizo I wrote a series...

Hazards of the Dark Wednesday, September 10, 2008There are certainly a lot of monsters in the Darklands, but any seasoned traveler of the nighted tunnels deep below can tell you that there are more ways to die down there than on the teeth or claws of a beast, or upon the poisoned blade of a dark elf. There's poisonous fungi, devastating floods of water and magma, poisonous gas, tremors, bad air, and even radioactive minerals. Pictured here are one of those deadly...

... It Just Keeps Getting Better Tuesday, September 9, 2008I've got a problem. ... See, back in April I did one of these blog posts about The Ginger Star, the first of Leigh Brackett's three Skaith books. In it, I talked all about how she's my favorite Planet Stories author so far, and how The Ginger Star is hands-down the most fun-to-read book in our line to date. I was fair, but I was effusive, as the world she painted was a beautiful blend of fantasy and sci-fi (as is the case with so much...

Of course—in a place where a nation of undead passes as one form of civilization and an empire of forgotten aquatic fish-man slaves passes as another, civilization might not be what visitors from the surface expect. ...

But Spiders Make Great Monsters!

... But Spiders Make Great Monsters! Monday, September 1, 2008We've had an awful lot of spider-themed monsters in the pages of Pathfinder over the past year or so. Enough that we've actually heard some complaints about how many of the new monsters are spider-themed. Furthermore, when we revealed that the third Adventure Path was going to revolve around the drow, we heard an even more vocal outcry against spiders. I'm not sure how much of the spider backlash is due to all the spider stuff...
