Confessions of a Recovering Paizo Blog Addict

When the Paizo Blog first started back in spring 2007, I was new to the Pathfinder fan community, and to be honest, Pathfinder wasn't even a thing. I rarely read it, because wasn't quite sure what the people who made my favorite magazines thought they were doing making D&D content that wasn't officially approved and licensed as canon and therefor allowable in my game (yeah, I was one of those gamers). I read the blog occasionally, but that was it.

Yo, Scurvy Dog, I Heard You Like Villains...

Yarrr! Pirate sounds and words! Yarrr! Dear readers, before we start looking at cards from Pathfinder Adventure Card Game—Skull & Shackles Adventure Deck 2: Raiders of the Fever Sea, I want to take a couple of moments to share some thoughts about the comments on my last blog. I'm sort of curmudgeonly for a woman in her twenties, so some of these thoughts may seem a bit harsh, but deep down, I'm actually a marshmallow. If I had more coffee in my system, all my thoughts would be rainbows and kittens, but alas, I'm out of java.

Pathfinder Tales: Skinwalkers

The Fury of the North

Due to the holiday madness, your regularly scheduled web fiction—Chris Willrich's adventures of Gideon the bard, star of The Dagger of Trust—has been postponed for two weeks, but I couldn't pass up the chance to talk about Pathfinder Tales. Specifically, I want to show off the cover art for Wendy N. Wagner's book Skinwalkers, which comes out in late February.

Pathfinder Tales: Stalking the Beast

Gaming as Storytelling

Writing and gaming are inextricably linked for me, so I suppose it's little wonder that I ended up authoring game books. I've been playing various roleplaying games since junior high, starting with Advanced Dungeons & Dragons, and I soon saw that one of the biggest differences between a good and a passable GM is the ability to spin an exciting yarn. Gamemastering isn't just about knowing the rules—to be honest, I've always been a little loose in that regard. I think it's more important to be able to vividly describe things and to impart a sense of forward momentum—to know when to run with the die roll, and when to fudge things.

Meet The Artists: Concept Art House

Meet The Artists: Concept Art House Monday, May 19, 2008So, it struck me that we haven't spent much time on this blog talking about art. We've shown off plenty of it, but remember, it all has to come from somewhere! Sometimes we go to specific artists to get illustrations for Pathfinder products, but we also work with several studios of artists as well. One of our favorites to work with is Concept Art House. ... Concept Art House is an international art studio/outsourcing company whose...

People of the Cinderlands

People of the Cinderlands Tuesday, May 6, 2008As inhospitable as the burning plains of the Storval Plateau are, several species actively seek to claw a life from the hard clay and lifeless ash. ... Gargoyles: Bands of savage gargoyles have long made their home on the Storval Plateau. In the Cinderlands particularly, the ashen and brick-colored gargoyles of the Ashwing tribe soar from aerie to aerie, snatching up whatever meals they can and taking wing when the fires of the land grow too near....

Pathfinder #7—Curse of the Crimson Throne Chapter 1:

The Chase is On!

The Chase is On! Monday, February 11, 2008 One of the problems I've seen with most game systems is the necessity of nailing down and quantifying a creature's speed. While this is certainly an important value, especially when combat begins, it carries with it an unfortunate implication—you're either always faster or slower or equally quick when compared to anything else. In other words... chase scenes are big problems in RPGs, since those static Speed statistics imply that you're either...
