Goblins Ahoy!

Obviously we're not the only ones with pirate goblins on the brain! While we've been putting the final touches on Pathfinder Adventure Card Game: Skull & Shackles, Pathfinder reader Jason A. Legg put together this awesome papercraft diorama. Check out the amazing detail on the little kobolds defenders, the goblin invaders, the bamboo field, and the shaman's fearsome dragon magic!

Pathfinder: Goblins! #4: Mean and Green

Growing up, we were terminally out of milk, meaning the circuit for any errand inevitably included a trip to the local convenience store. As much as my brother and I enjoyed the opportunities any store presented for squirming and line standing, my mother usually preferred to let her hellions run flailing to the nearby comic shop.

While goblin adventurers, in an effort to get along with other more squeamish races, may control their pyromaniac urgings, others learn to harness that power and focus it into devastating force. ...

... Ecology of the Pathfinder Product, Part 3: An Outbreak of Art Tuesday, October 5, 2009 ... Illustration by Crystal Frasier ... Cave raptors are sated; It's time to blog! ... As it stands, Dwarves of Golarion is now written and assembled by its loving developer. Though awkward and gangly, we can see what it will finally grow up into. But at this point, this happy child is nothing more than a text document in the daycare that is a documents folder, happy rolling in the mud and receiving...

... Ecology of the Pathfinder Product, Part 2: The Awkward Development Years Tuesday, September 29, 2009 ... Illustration by Crystal Frasier ... Cave Raptors are sated; It's time to blog! ... When last we left Dwarves of Golarion, it was a mere egg of an outline, being fussed over by attentive parents and waiting to hatch. But now it is time for that blessed moment when an idea emerges into the world as written words! It is time for… the development phase! ... Development is the process of...

... They appreciate my mastery of fire... Tuesday, September 15, 2009 ... Illustration by Crystal Frasier ... Greetings from the new Paizo caverns! As the newest addition to the war party, it falls on me to write today's blog. I am Crystal, and yes, I am named after a shiny rock. We can all thank my grandfather and his love of all things shiny. ...

Pathfinder Swag!

... Pathfinder Swag! Tuesday, August 11, 2009It's already starting to feel like a ghost town here at Paizo headquarters as the majority of the staff packs up and heads off for Gen Con Indy. With the debut of the Pathfinder RPG, we're totally excited, but also expecting the convention to be four days of absolute madness. So what are we doing? Oh, we're adding fuel to that fire, of course! There's already going to be tons of opportunities to get Paizo swag just by stopping by our booth, but in...

The Mad Artist of Manifest!

... The Mad Artist of Manifest! Monday, November 17, 2008A few years back Sean K Reynolds had a hand in writing a particularly morbid and unusual book. That's probably not too helpful a statement considering that he cranks out like 35 a year*, so to narrow it down a little more, it was about ghosts. And to narrow it down even further, it was called Ghostwalk. ... Since moving into the desk next to mine (and covering it with enough miniatures to give the tarrasque lead poisoning), Sean's been...

A little history for Falling: The Goblin Edition

... A little history for Falling: The Goblin Edition Tuesday, May 20, 2008Sometimes it truly amazes me how things work in real life. Most of the time, there's a strategy behind our product releases. Many months of scheming and preparation go into each Paizo product. Sometimes, though, there's a project like Falling that... falls into our laps. ... A few months ago we were sitting around the conference table brainstorming new products for the Titanic Games line. Somebody, I think it was Mike...

Last Gobby Down, Wins

Last Gobby Down, Wins Friday, April 18, 2008 We are still working on it, but we wanted to give you a look at a couple of cards from Titanic Games' upcoming remake of the popular card game, Falling. Falling was an incredibly fun game and, unfortunately, isn't in print anymore. We thought it'd be fun to re-imagine it and, once again, enjoy the downright frenetic game play. So, we set the Golems to work! Here is a taste of the juice from the fruits of their labors. Do you have what it takes to...

The Birth of Bugbears

... The Birth of Bugbears Wednesday, April 2, 2008What horrors and fearsome bogeymen await in Classic Monsters Revisited?

Kyle's Magnificent Menagerie

Kyle's Magnificent Menagerie Wednesday, September 5, 2007Some of you may have already noticed a striking stylistic similarity between the fun cartoon goblin illustrating Pathfinder #1's introduction and those strange little monsters that used to appear in Dungeon to illustrate the Dungeoncraft column and the table of contents. That's because both series are done by one of our favorite artists and creative minds, Downer creator Kyle Stanley Hunter. ... Much as he did in Dungeon, each month...

Monsters Are to Pathfinder What Icing Is to Cake—Attic Whisperer

Monsters Are to Pathfinder What Icing Is to Cake Monday, April 23, 2007I've made no secret of my obsession for new monsters. I love them. I can never get enough of them. Will I ever use all the monsters I've collected through my decades of RPG enthusiasm? Absolutely not. But I wouldn't give up any of them. ... Unlike magic items or spells, new monsters are things that a GM can introduce into a game without fear that they'll disrupt a campaign. If they prove too lame (as was the case of my...

... Cover illustration for volume 1. Click to enlarge. Reinventing The Wheel Friday, April 20, 2007Originally, the main menace in Burnt Offerings, the first Rise of the Runelords adventure, was going to be a tribe of kobolds, because let's face it—everyone loves kobolds. So much so, in fact, that they ended up being the bad guys for the first GameMastery Module, which hits the shelves two months before Burnt Offerings. Which is cool for Crown of the Kobold King, but left Burnt Offerings...
