Pathfinder Campaign Setting: Inner Sea Gods Hardcover (PFRPG)

Inner Sea Gods: Deities

The release of the Pathfinder Campaign Setting hardcover, Inner Sea Gods, is fast approaching, and that means it's time for some previews. The art team already did a preview of some of the amazing illustrations to grace this 336-page tome, so I'll talk a bit more about the words that accompany the book's incredible art.

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...

Pathfinder Chronicles: Gods & Magic (OGL)

Out of the Void

... Out of the Void Wednesday, August 27, 2008Keen-eyed readers of Chapter 3 of the Pathfinder Chronicles Campaign Setting have noticed that the deity Groetus, God of the End Times (that creepy moon nearby is his holy symbol, by the way), granted one less domain than the other gods. The problem there is, of course, the fact that there’s just not a lot of good choices for a chaotic neutral god of the apocalypse among the SRD domains—my goal was to include a new domain for Groetus, but...

Good Versus Evil

... Good Versus Evil Friday, August 22, 2008One of the most rewarding parts of seeing the upcoming Gods and Magic come together is seeing each of Golarion's core 20 deities illustrated. We've seen a few show up here and there in Pathfinder already, but in this book, it's all of them! Pictured here are two of our world's deities—sinister Asmodeus and indomitable Iomedae.

Hail the Headless King!

... Hail the Headless King! Wednesday, August 13, 2008There's more in the multiverse than just the deities of Golarion's civilized races. Amid the near endless realms of the Great Beyond lurk wonders and horrors beyond the imaginings of mortals, beings deserving of worship, and terrors of which no man was ever meant to know. ... In addition to the twenty most prevalent deities of the Pathfinder Chronicles campaign setting, the next tome in the Pathfinder Chronicles line, Gods & Magic, sets...

Demon Lords of Golarion

... Demon Lords of Golarion Wednesday, August 6, 2008So, if you'll allow me a moment here to go off on a tangent that's near and dear to my black, twitching, tainted heart—let me talk for a bit about the demon lords of Golarion. ... I've always been a fan of demons. I've written at length on my personal blog, on messageboards, in editorials, and in various books about this admiration of all things Abyssal. The one person I've met who can match (or exceed) this perfectly normal and...

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...

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...

A Duo of Deities—Shelyn

A Duo of Deities Thursday, May 8, 2008The Pathfinder Chronicles Gazetteer is out now and receiving rave reviews. In case you haven't had a chance to check it out yet, here's an excerpt of what you're missing. I have a soft spot for Shelyn, since she was my first major contribution to the campaign setting, so here's the first official look at her, straight from the pages of the Gaz. ...

Pathfinder #9—Curse of the Crimson Throne Chapter 3:

He Who Walks In Blood

He Who Walks In Blood Monday, April 28, 2008In Golarion, the gods are immortal. They can die, but the methods of their deaths must be divine as well. A mortal cannot kill a god. However—the same cannot be said of demigods! None of the core 20 deities of Golarion are demigods, but we've introduced several along the way who could be called such. A demigod can be killed by mortals—they possess stat blocks, in other words. ... Last Monday, I introduced you to one of Golarion's most...

More Magic of Thassilon

... More Magic of Thassilon Monday, Jaunary 28, 2008For Pathfinder #5, we asked a small army of authors to send us some spells and magic items that had a Thassilonian feel to them. As it turned out, we got about twice as many as we really had room to print. Rather than just cut the second half out and throw it away, we decided to cut the second half out and throw it into a free web enhancement for Pathfinder #5. Pictured here is just one of those items—a fragment of the Gluttonous Tome,...

Making Monsters, Lamashtu Style

... Making Monsters, Lamashtu Style Monday, December 24, 2007In Pathfinder #5, we have the second in our series of articles exploring the deities of Golarion. This time around, master of all things divine Sean K Reynolds talks about Lamashtu, the Mother of Monsters and one of Golarion's most notorious deities. After all, she's not just the one the goblins and gnolls and all sorts of other monsters worship—she's the one who MAKES a lot of the monsters in the first place. And if you...

Holy of Holies

Holy of Holies Friday, September 7, 2007In the Player's Guide to Rise of the Runelords, we had a chance to illustrate six of our core deities' holy symbols. Unfortunately, that left the other 14 deities with nothing. What happens when a player wants to draw a sketch of his cleric of Iomedae? How does the GM describe the giant symbol of Rovagug carved into the walls of the evil temple? ... Eventually, the symbols of all 20 core deities will be illustrated, but for now, the following list of...

Desna Detailed Wednesday, August 8, 2007With work on The Skinsaw Murders wrapping up, we thought we'd give you a brief taste of Sean K Reynolds' insightful exploration into Desna, Golarion's goddess of luck, travel, and more. Presented here is one of several key myths tied to her faith and frequently repeated by members of her flock, as well as a fabulous rendering of her holy symbol by Savage Tide alumnus Ben Wootten. ...

Forge Spurned

Forge Spurned Friday, May 18, 2007In Crown of the Kobold King we introduce the dwarven deity Droskar, God of Toil. Droskar's following began as a reaction against the bon vivant trends that pervaded the dwarven society of their day, instating a dreadful dogma of salvation through endless toil and brutal subservience to the Dark Smith, as Droskar was often called. The dwarves became slaves to their own industry, producing heaps of weapons, armor, and gear to appease their dark god. The...

Needless to say, they look fabulous and we're all pretty excited about them.

Ye Gods! Thursday, April 26, 2007When we decided to set both Pathfinder and the GameMastery modules in the same unique campaign world, one of the first issues we as a staff had to tackle was the pantheon. As Pathfinder Editor-in-Chief James Jacobs regularly points out, without compelling deities, the game is much less fun—and not just for clerics. Before you can know anything about a person or culture, you have to know who's pulling the strings (or who they think is pulling them, anyway)....

Raising The Runelords or, How To Recover From a TPK and Make It Look Like You Planned It All Along Sunday, April 22, 2007Once upon a time, I was running one of my favorite adventures, White Plume Mountain, for my players. They messed up good, got split up, and ended up all being dominated by a certain vampire charged with guarding a certain hammer. Now, I didn't want to admit I had a TPK on my hands, so I took a cue form another favorite adventure, The Mud Sorcerer's Tomb, and introduced a...
