Pathfinder Tales Are Here!

Thursday, June 3, 2010

As you may have noticed, along with a host of other changes to the website that rolled out yesterday, the front page of paizo.com now has a new addition—Pathfinder Tales web fiction!

Here's the deal: Every Wednesday, we're going to bring you new serialized, illustrated short stories set in the Pathfinder campaign setting, written by some of the best authors around. These stories will also be archived in perpetuity, allowing you to read each multi-chapter story as it comes out, as well as go back and reread your favorites in their entirety. Add in fun little toys like an RSS feed that allows you to easily check out the latest action, and you've got a pretty cool new feature, especially when you consider that it's all absolutely free.

To kick things off, we enlisted our old pal Dave Gross, author of the "Hell's Pawns" series in the Council of Thieves Pathfinder's Journal, as well as the upcoming debut novel for the Pathfinder Tales book line, Prince of Wolves. His new story, "The Lost Pathfinder," once again stars Pathfinder Varian Jeggare and his tiefling bodyguard Radovan, and bridges the gap between the journal and the novel (though all three works stand alone).

I couldn't be more excited about all the new Pathfinder stories, and I hope that you are as well. To sound off and let us know what you like—or would like to see more of—head on over to the Pathfinder Tales messageboards, or click here to dive in and start reading!

AWRIGHT!!!

Hey, dude, what's up?


This is great! Is it to drum up interest in the books? Because illustrations and writing! Wow! For free!

Any plans for pdf's each week (or after the compiled edition) for those who would like to print them out to read away from the computer?

(I know I can highlight and print selected, but I just thought I would ask...)

Unfortunately not, since "hey, people will be visiting the site!" is the primary rationale we have for giving the fiction away for free (at a not-insignificant expensive, considering we're paying top dollar for it). Without that, it's just a straight-up present from Paizo's management team, and we wouldn't want to make them feel like bad capitalists. :D

If you want some portable Pathfinder fiction, though, I've got a nice Dave Gross novel I can sell ya....

Question, as you get more and more fiction up. Are you going to make a page for it? So each fiction line has it's own page. Making it easier to read them or go back and reread.

You will be able to read each complete story in one spot, yes.


Will there still be normal Wednesday blog posts, or is the plan to have these replace the blog once a week?
