Wrapping Up the Mummy's Mask

I know what you're thinking. "Another Mummy's Mask blog? We're totally in Iron Gods mode now! Show me robots, darn it!" And you're right. We released the final chapter of the Mummy's Mask Adventure Path a few months ago now, and this month are releasing the second chapter in its follow-up AP, Iron Gods. That's why now is the perfect time to release a bunch of art from Mummy's Mask. We now have the entire AP to go through in search of the best pieces of art to release to the public, either as potential desktop backgrounds, or to use in a publication or on a website using the Community Use Policy.

Iron Gods Resource Roundup

Many of you have already got your hands on Pathfinder Adventure Path #85: "The Fires of Creation," the first volume of the Iron Gods Adventure Path. Dedicated readers, eager fans, and other messageboard fanatics (you know who you are) have been clamoring for us to do something more with Numeria since the nation first appeared in the Campaign Setting, but adding in laser guns and robots isn't something you do without a considerable amount of preparation. So, to support the Iron Gods Adventure Path we went all out with a number of releases intended to fully flesh out the campaign and provide fun and interesting options for players and GMs alike.

Calling All Miscreants and Malefactors!

Get ready to get evil with Pathfinder Player Companion: Champions of Corruption! The latest volume in the Player Companion line provides players and GMs alike with suggestions on how to take their Pathfinder game to the dark side without pushing it over the edge of fun. Rather than tantalize you with mere words, however, I figured I'd let for the pieces in this book of vileness speak for themselves. In addition to dozens of new character traits, feats, and much, much more, the following features (and their accompanying art) are just some of the all-new content you'll find in this spine-tingling Player Companion.

Faction Evolution, Part III: History and Politics

Three weeks ago, we briefly discussed the impact of faction PCs' decisions in the campaign and how these decisions have shaped the direction that these factions are going. The following week on the Know Direction podcast, John Compton expanded on what this evolution might entail for many factions: name changes, shifting goals, and even changes in leadership. Most recently, we shared how the Andoran an Cheliax factions are developing over time.

Harrow: Past, Present, and Future

For years the Harrow has been the domain of home games, literature, and lore, but due to a combination of the soft time limits inherent in organized play, the range of ways in which someone might cheat with a deck-based mechanic, and a wealth of other considerations that predate my work at Paizo, most Harrow-based options were never allowed. When Mike and I heard that Pathfinder Player Companion: The Harrow Handbook was on the product schedule, we started pondering how we might share as much of this book as possible with the campaign. We bounced ideas off a lot of folks, and in the end we decided to make legal nearly everything in the book as well as several previously banned Harrow character options such as the harrower prestige class from Pathfinder Campaign Setting: The Inner Sea World Guide and the oft-requested Deadly Dealer feat from Pathfinder Player Companion: Varisia, Birthplace of Legends. Expect an update to the Additional Resources page that includes these additions.

Pathfinder Player Companion: Blood of the Moon (PFRPG)

Howl at the Moon!

October is looming nearer, and with it comes the promise of new Paizo books that deal in the horrific, the supernatural, and the downright creepy. Chief among our offerings this year is a book I am very much excited for—the much-anticipated Pathfinder Player Companion: Blood of the Moon! This spiritual sequel to last year's Blood of the Night contains everything players need to know about werecreatures and their distant descendants, the skinwalkers, including rules for this all-new race of lycanthrope-kin and dozens of new mechanics to complement bestial adventurers of any race or path. Whether your skinwalker heritage emerged amid an assuming rural village or you were a human raised by wolves to become an animalistic barbarian, Blood of the Moon provides infinite inspiration and options for characters who have more than a tinge of the wild side running in their blood.

Pathfinder Player Companion: Mythic Origins (PFRPG)

Take Your Character to the Level After the Next Level!

The release of Pathfinder RPG Mythic Adventures is looming ever nearer, and I know a lot of you are champing at the bit to get your hands on this tome of unearthly powers and epic storytelling! But we at Paizo knew you wouldn’t be satisfied with just one book on mythic power—even a 256-page behemoth like this will only sate the diehard Pathfinder fan’s hunger for so long. That is why, esteemed reader, we are also giving you Pathfinder Campaign Setting: Mythic Realms and Pathfinder Player Companion: Mythic Origins, which bring the majesty of mythic might off of the page and into the world of Golarion!

Pathfinder Player Companion: Demon Hunter's Handbook (PFRPG)

Back to the Abyss with You!

From pesky quasits to fiendishly handsome incubi, grotesque dretches to cunning glabrezu, all of the foulest denizens of the Abyss continually show that they are in dire need of slaying. To this end, countless groups and organizations across the Inner Sea train in the art of hunting, defeating, and slaying demons that crawl forth onto the Material Plane. Alternatively, these daring adventurers delve into the heart of the Abyss itself, taking the battle to the demons' home plane while performing harrowing missions to retrieve valuable treasures or rescue captured victims. Both of these themes are the focus of Pathfinder Player Companion: Demon Hunter's Handbook—a volume no demon-slaying adventurer should miss!

When threads pop up on our messageboards with questions like "Is it even possible for a cleric to not be some deity-worshiping fanatic?" and "How much do the deities ‘talk' to their followers?", it warms my heart to see that fans are truly ready for a book like Faiths & Philosophies, which is much unlike any other book we've ever done!

Here we have a balor taking out a silver dragon in this awesome cover illustration from Wayne Reynolds. This chaotic scene greets the PCs as they begin the Wrath of the Righteous Adventure Path, which launches this August with Pathfinder Adventure Path #73: The Worldwound.

Pathfinder Player Companion: Champions of Purity

Finally An End To All Those Paladin Threads...

Pathfinder Player Companion: Champions of Purity is on its way to stores and subscribers soon, and I thought I'd take this opportunity to point out some of my favorite parts of this book. While it has all the delightful crunch readers have come to expect in the Player Companion line (including new feats, magic items, spells, bardic masterpieces, subdomains, inquisitions, and a whole ton more I don't want to give away), the most exciting part about this volume for me is the careful and thought-out discussions regarding alignment and playing good characters. Some of the most interesting matters considered in this book include:

We here at Paizo HQ are deep in the throes of birthing a number of incredible products for release at Gen Con in August, and that means it's an all-hands-on-deck scenario. John and I are being called upon to assist with development and editing of products outside the Pathfinder Society Scenario line, and that means less time to devote to Pathfinder Society blogs on Mondays. So that you aren't left in the lurch, however, here are a few pieces of art from some of this month's Pathfinder releases, set to start going out to subscribers in the next week or so. Some of these images may even be useful for GMs who like visual aids for their Pathfinder Society games, though I won't give any more info than that!

It's Savannah again. The prodigal intern from last summer returns... for Spring Break anyhow.

Personally, I think I've got the better end of the deal, since I get to tell you all about some of our upcoming products and how exciting they're looking. So, from the depths of the Editorial Pit and my appropriated computer comes an intern's-eye view (when that view isn't "hiding on pallets from the cave raptors.")

Pathfinder Companion: Qadira, Gateway to the East (PFRPG)

Qadira, Gateway to the East

... Qadira, Gateway to the East Monday, July 27, 2009Qadira, Gateway to the East is a bit unique. It got delayed by the Paizo snowpocalypse of 2008, and its revised release date placed it much closer to the release date of the Pathfinder RPG Core Rulebook. Rather than publishing a regional sourcebook and follow it a month later with the new rules, we secretly replaced its regular coffee with...

Pathfinder Companion: Osirion, Land of Pharaohs (OGL)

Welcome to Osirion!

... Welcome to Osirion! Friday, October 3, 2008Our third Pathfinder Companion takes us south into the legendary sands of Osirion. And what is pretty much the number one thing you need to watch out for in Osirion? Mummies, of course! But to me, it's not the mummies in Ralph Horsley's cover to Osirion: Land of Pharaohs you have to worry about... it's whoever built that freaky sphinx in the background that would have my characters nervous!

Pathfinder Companion: Second Darkness (OGL)

Character Traits, Part II

... Character Traits, Part II Monday, July 21, 2008Back on June 23, I gave you a preview of the Character Traits system we're introducing in the Pathfinder Companion line. There, I'd mentioned that there were several different kinds of traits for you to mix and match—with a single trait roughly equaling half a feat in power, by picking to Character Traits your character effectively starts with a bonus feat that's tailored specifically to his or her background and personality. ...

Pathfinder Companion: Second Darkness (OGL)

Character Traits

... Character Traits Monday, June 23, 2008In the first Pathfinder Companion, the Player's Guide to the Second Darkness Adventure Path, we introduce a new mechanic for tying your character's background and history into the gaming world as a whole. These are Character Traits, a concept we first introduced in the Curse of the Crimson Throne Player's Guide, where the trait you pick gives you not only a small bonus to your character, but ties him or her into the Adventure Path's storyline from the...
