Pathfinder Roleplaying Game: GameMastery Guide (OGL)

GameMastery Guide Preview: Do it Yourself!

... GameMastery Guide Preview: Do it Yourself! Friday, May 28, 2010I'm really fond of all of Pathfinder's Adventure Paths. Being able to pick out my ideas, or having art for villains or creatures I invented, or hearing about how players contended with challenges we came up with all does my inner GM proud. But although we encourage every GM to tinker and make any of our published adventures theirs, there's a rich sense of satisfaction in knowing that your players have enjoyed the story you...

Pathfinder Adventure Path #33: The Varnhold Vanishing (Kingmaker 3 of 6) (PFRPG)

Kingmaker: Iobarian Timeline

... Cartography by Rob Lazzaretti ... Kingmaker: Iobarian Timeline Thursday, May 27, 2010An ancient land of half-forgotten empires and untold savagery, Iobaria sprawls beyond the frontiers of northern Avistan. History scars and shapes the people of this rugged land, the ruins of sprawling civilizations standing testament to ages of glories long lost, but which might rise again. Supplementing the Iobaria Gazetteer by Steven Schend in Pathfinder Adventure Path #33, the following timeline (also...

Pathfinder Campaign Setting: The Inner Sea World Guide (PFRPG)

It's Huge!

... Photography by Gary Teter ... It's Huge! Wednesday, May 26, 2010The way the story goes, Erik walked into the copy shop with a disc holding the map of the Inner Sea Region and asked the employee there to make the image as big as he could. ... Okay, here we go, the man said, holding up a sheet maybe two feet high. ... I don't think you understand, Erik replied. I need this big. ... Thus it was that last Friday, Erik and Wes came into the office holding a map of the Inner Sea Region that,...

Me, I knit—tentacled beasties, piratical or tentacled hats, fingerless gloves with guild names embroidered across the knuckles. ... Being between projects at the moment, I was browsing knitting patterns online and was disappointed to note that although there are some amazing fantasy knitting patterns, I couldn't find any Pathfinder-related patterns! That must be...

... Departing Blog Monday, May 24, 2010Well, it was a fun adventure, but sadly, my journey as an editorial intern with Paizo must come to an end. The length of my internship seemed only a few weeks at most, though it has indeed been several moons, and other responsibilities vie for my attention. ...

... GameMastery Guide Preview: Things Get Weird! Friday, May 21, 2010 ... Let me let you in on one of the guiding philosophies of the GameMastery Guide. We didn’t make this book to let you run my game, or a “Paizo-brand” game, or any sort of game anyone here thinks you should run. We created the GameMastery Guide to give you the tools you need to run your game the way you want. For example, let me note a few entries in the index: Airships; Evil Characters; Extraterrestrials; Gambling;...

See Where It All Began! Wednesday, May 19, 2010After almost two years of work, Before They Were Giants is finally away to the printer, and I couldn’t be more excited about it! ... Illustration by Kieran Yanner ... If I haven’t already filled your ear about it on the messageboards, the story behind the book is as follows. Back in the early days of Planet Stories, I came to Erik with a proposal for an anthology: What if we could get 15 of the biggest living superstars in science fiction and...

Faction Guide Excerpts

... Faction Guide Excerpts Tuesday, May 18, 2010Pathfinder Chronicles: Faction Guide presents 24 example factions, rules for how PCs can gain reputations and status in these organizations, and rewards for PCs who pursue such things. The goal of this book isn’t to present the history and reach of these factions in detail, but to give codify ways (and incentives) for PCs to become involved with these group and provide unique benefits for achieving high status within an organization.

The Unluckiest Owlbear: Part VI

... Illustration by Jon Hodgson ... The Unluckiest Owlbear: Part VI Monday, May 17, 2010It's been a long, strange, and humiliating trip for the poor unlucky owlbear. He's been shot dead, turned into a pigeon roost and object of mockery for slack-jawed yokels, torn down and broken apart by barbarians, and defiled by wandering wolves. But as is always the case with that pesky circle of life thing that nature loves so much, eventually he gets to return to his beloved woods. And hopefully warn...

The goal: produce more than 30 accessories, Adventure Path volumes, modules, maps, novels, and hardcover books, before May 12th—the date by which our August releases need to be to our printer. The task has been daunting, and at several points along the way seemed unlikely, but at 10:30 last night, with the shipping of the Advanced Player's Guide and a scant hour and a half...

Tim Hitchcock Is Insane

Tim Hitchcock Is Insane Wednesday, May 12, 2010Here at Paizo, we understand that our fans, friends, and contributors (and the sizable cadre of folks who combine all three categories) are a little different than most companies' communities. It's not uncommon for Paizo fans to send us pizzas out of the blue as a thank-you gesture, or offer to buy us drinks when they run into us somewhere in the city. (Both of which initially confused us—you're giving us presents for selling you...

Those interior pages are prime real estate, after all, what with being the first thing you see when you open the book, their extra sturdiness, and what not. There's precedent for leaving these pages blank or just putting in some design—like we sort of did in Rise of the Runelords—but that's boring. On the other hand, we could do what the Modules...

It's one thing to be immortalized as a statue in the middle of a village, where children laugh at you and birds poop on you and you eventually become forgotten as part of the town square's mundane decor. It's quite another when the barbarians come to town and, in a sudden urge to show off their...
