Two Pieces of Tarnished Silver—Chapter Five: Home Fires Burn

Two Pieces of Tarnished Silverby Erik Mona ... Chapter Five: Home Fires BurnAebos's fist crashed into Creeg's jaw with the force of a battering ram. The alchemist made a meek little sound, spun once, and collapsed upon the garden floor. Korm had seen lesser blows from the cyclops's fists snap the necks of men much hardier than Epostian Creeg. Perhaps the punch had killed him. A fitting end for a traitor. ... At the foot of the low stair, cloaked in the form of a centaur, Juval cackled loudly....

Two Pieces of Tarnished Silver—Chapter Four: Across the Plain of Pools

Two Pieces of Tarnished Silverby Erik Mona ... Chapter Four: Across the Plain of PoolsKorm woke from fitful dreams at the touch of Aebos's massive hand upon his shoulder, shaking him gently. It's been four hours, the cyclops said softly. It's your turn to stand watch. A good thing, too. I just caught myself dozing off. ... Korm rubbed sleep from his eyes and surveyed his surroundings. Across the small expanse of flat ledge on which they'd camped the alchemist Epostian Creeg lay upon his fine...

Two Pieces of Tarnished Silver—Chapter Three: Beyond the Demon Lens

Two Pieces of Tarnished Silverby Erik Mona ... Chapter Three: Beyond the Demon LensFor a long moment Korm Calladan felt only a pleasant warmth. Gone were the fears of starvation, the thrill of combat in the cramped underdeck of the Queen's Lament, the suspicion of the Lady Iranez and her imposing crew. He knew his cyclops companion Aebos and the preening alchemist Epostian Creeg were somewhere ahead, for they had preceded him through the curved glass lens at the heart of the Relentless, but...

Two Pieces of Tarnished Silver—Chapter Two: Breaking Fast

Two Pieces of Tarnished Silverby Erik Mona ... Chapter Two: Breaking FastKorm and Aebos emerged into the morning sun to find the bodies of their crewmates hacked apart and bleeding upon the midship deck. Red-fletched crossbow bolts stuck out from the corpses at odd angles. Korm's empty stomach lurched, and with a grimace the slender swordsman realized that the carnage had caused his mouth to water with anticipation. An hour ago, here on the windless barrens of a stillswept sea, the ship's...

The Nex Step

The Nex Step Wednesday, April 27th, 2011Way back in the editorial of Dragon #353, in March, 2007, I gave the first hint about a major gaming project I'd already been working on for months. While recounting a fun convention appearance at North Carolina's Mid-Atlantic Convention Expo (M.A.C.E.) I mentioned that I ran two marathon sessions of my Age of Worms kick-off adventure, The Whispering Cairn, as well as another super-secret event, The Refuge of Nex, which I called a cunning dungeon you...

You Asked For It!

You Asked For It! Wednesday, April 20th, 2011One of the questions I get asked most often about Pathfinder Tales is: When are we going to see some fiction from the Paizo staffers? While there can be no question that our other Pathfinder Tales authors have done a bang-up job so far, many folks are eager to see stories that come directly from the source, the products of the same vibrant (and sometimes twisted) imaginations that gave the campaign setting life in the first place. ... It's a...

Two Pieces of Tarnished Silver—Chapter One: On a Stillswept Sea

Two Pieces of Tarnished Silverby Erik Mona ... Chapter One: On a Stillswept SeaKorm Calladan grimaced as his teeth pulled a strip of flesh from a hastily cooked human arm. After three weeks and twelve of his mates put to the spit, he couldn't quite bring himself to devour his meals on deck, before the eyes of his fellow crewmen. He knew he would have died long ago if not for the grim meals—and he refused to die—but his survival brought him no satisfaction. Worse, the passing of...

Happy Erik Mona Day (Observed)!

... Happy Erik Mona Day (Observed)! Wednesday, November 11, 2009No one here at Paizo really understands the significance of the 8th of November, or how it came to be known as Erik Mona Day—especially not the pseudo holiday's namesake. But sure enough, like the semi-reliable working of a clock with too many numbers, on or about the 312th day of the year strange deliverymen track their way to Paizo's door with flatteringly inscrutable prizes. Typically, it's pizza—glorious free...

... The Fabled Appendix – Erik Mona (Part 3) Friday, February 20, 2009In the second part of my interview with Erik Mona about which books, movies, and other resources he would include in Paizo's Appendix N, he explained how the idea of a devil-worshiping colonial power—the concept of which eventually became the feared nation of Cheliax—began as a faction in a miniatures game that he developed in his free time. In this conclusion, Erik reveals that several other nations of...

... 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. To begin this series, there seemed no better place to start than with one of the original creators of Golarion and the...

The Swordsman of Mars (Trade Paperback)

Two Swordsmen of Mars!

... Two Swordsmen of Mars! Saturday, September 20, 2008While pulp science-fiction magazines had entered a sort of digest-sized hibernation by the early 1960s, the paperback book phenomenon was hitting with full force, exposing readers to a new generation of writers while bringing many of the old pulp classics of the past into book form for the very first time. The celebrated Ace Doubles of the era presented many of the books we've already published in our Planet Stories classic fantasy line,...
