Advanced Race Guide Preview: Letting the Cat out of the Bag—Catfolk Rogue Talents

Advanced Race Guide Preview: Letting the Cat out of the Bag Tuesday, May 15, 2012 Actually, we are letting the cat out of the book.

Introducing the Year of the Risen Rune

Introducing the Year of the Risen Rune Monday, April 30, 2012I took a break from the Gen Con push today to write this blog post, and my mind started to wander. I thought a bit about days gone by and how last year at this time we were under just as much pressure trying to get Ultimate Combat off to the presses in time. The more things change, the more they stay the same. Anyway, I also thought to myself, Self, what sort of blog were you writing this time last year? ... Aha! myself answered. I...

Unflinching Evil—Tzitzimitl CR 19

Unflinching Evil Tuesday, December 6, 2011 When brainstorming a new hardcover bestiary, we have many goals. These books give us an opportunity to support new Adventure Paths and other products.

We get to express our love for classic creatures, exploring the genre’s rich history and smoothing out some of its wackiness. But it...

Golarion Day: Psychopomps Thursday, April 21, 2011In Bestiary 2 we introduced a new race of neutral outsiders, the aeons. But we weren't satisfied with only one race of neutral outsiders—especially since aeons don't fit perfectly into the Boneyard, Golarion's true neutral Outer Plane. With the article on Pharasma in the second volume of Carrion Crown, we revealed a second race of neutral outsiders—ones that specifically serve Pharasma and dwell in the Boneyard itself. The...
