The Fabled Appendix – James L. Sutter (Part 2) Tuesday, May 19, 2009Here follows Part 2 of my interview with Editor James L. Sutter, in which he discusses his influences for Golarion's solar system, monster ecologies, and the island nation of Hermea. ... James: For Golarion's solar system, I wanted to include elements of real science, because there are so many phenomena in different scientific fields, such as astronomy, that are already so bizarre as to seem magical. Erik and his love...

More of the Fabled Appendix on the Way!

... More of the Fabled Appendix on the Way! Friday, February 27, 2009Greetings fellow blog addicts! ... I'm happy to announce that the road to creating Paizo's very own Appendix N continues, as an interview with Pathfinder's Editor-in-Chief, James Jacobs, is in the works. James's love of Lovecraft, derro, and horror movies is fairly legendary around the office and on the message boards, and he should have a great list of influences for those gamers who want to add a dash (or deluge) of the...

The Fabled Appendix – Erik Mona Monday, February 16, 2009As was explained in my introductory blog post, the purpose of this series is to create Paizo's very own Appendix N, a semi-comprehensive list of the books, comics, movies, and roleplaying products that influenced each member of the Paizo staff in their work on the Pathfinder Chronicles campaign setting.

The Fabled Appendix!

... The Fabled Appendix! Thursday, February 12, 2009For my inaugural blog post, I thought I'd try to hark back to some of the old-school roots that Paizo has blended together to create the world of Golarion. As many members of the Paizo staff have been playing the game since first edition, they've made it a design goal to create a setting that is true to the roots of the hobby while remaining fresh and exciting. ... At the time of the publication of the first edition Dungeon Masters Guide in...

... Gary Gygax: Remembered Tuesday, March 4, 2008The galley proofs for Gary Gygax's novel, The Samarkand Solution, are sitting on my desk right now, ready for the final check-off before we send the book to the printer. Sitting above my desk, packed into little cardboard sleeves, are dozens of copies of Dragon, the original RPG magazine for which Gygax served as publisher in its earliest days. Until recently, I served as publisher of that magazine, and it always made me proud to know I was...
