They Still Appreciate My Mastery Of Fire

Monday, March 9, 2015

We've got a few new faces in the editorial pit these days. One you've already met and a few we'll introduce soon, but we couldn't hope to pull off all our upcoming schemes without inviting back at least one familiar soul.

Some of you may recall an upstart goblin poking around the Paizo offices some five years ago, stealing ears and feeding the cave raptors. A goblin who vanished—under mysterious circumstances no less—after her ill-advised journey into the wildest depths of the warehouse.

That goblin was me. I have returned! Rejoice!

For those of you less versed in goblin lore: I am Crystal Frasier, author, illustrator, cartographer, and Paizo's newest assistant developer. What does an assistant developer do, you ask? That is an excellent question! I'm glad you asked! Moving on...

As I mentioned, I spent a fun five years working for Paizo as a production assistant and digital products assistant before leaving for a spell to make it on my own as a freelance writer, artist, and general awesome girl. But a freelancer's life is an isolated one, and without my shining smile to warm their days, Paizo employees began to wilt.* So for my own good and theirs, I have returned to beam my glorious radiance down. Also to develop books and edit statblocks—but mostly the beaming.

I've been gaming since the early nineties, when my love of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles comics lead me into the seedy world of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and Other Strangeness roleplaying game. From this harmless gateway RPG, I explored Dungeons & Dragons, Silver Age Sentinels, GURPS, West End's Star Wars, and eventually Pathfinder. In those few minutes a week when I'm not playing tabletop games, reading game manuals, running games, writing game material, or dreaming about running games for Hayley Atwell, I like to read comics, make candy, and walk my corgi, Calamity.

It's good to be back.

Someone's got to feed those cave raptors!

Assistant Developer

Please join us in welcoming Crystal back to Paizo!

I believe Crystal has now officially become the Paizo employee to have worked in the most departments. Third time's a charm!

Congratulations, Crystal. The Harrowing is one of my favorite adventures in twenty years of gaming, and I'm looking forward to running Divinity Drive in a few weeks (we just hit book 5).

Can we make that Hayley Attwell part a threesome?

*WIFE YELLS*

OK, scratch that, what was I thinking. Foursome?

I am in the process in reading Friendship is Dragons. Now Crystal's rainbow hair made me wonder which pony she would be?

I feel like that's a question that requires the pony expertise of Jason Bulmahn.

Aww the good ol' days of sitting at the picnic table playing TMNT. God now I feel old! Glad to see you're back at Paizo!


Nice to see Crystal. Hopefully your freelancing will still occur outside your raptor taming and Calamity-exercising.

P.S. TMNTAOS FTW!!! Still fantastic, especially After the Bomb, Road Hogs, TMNT Guide to the Universe, Transdimensional TMNT, Mutants in Avalon and my all time favorite (of course) Mutants Down Under.

I'm so happy that you're back with us, especially since we'll be working together more closely than your previous positions. Sorry I wasn't there today for your first day back!

*fanboy squee*


Welcome back! Funnily enough I am about to start Empty Graves for my group and I am very excited to see how they react at the awesomeness I am about to unleash upon them!

Liberty's Edge

Hey, wow! Congrats Crystal!!! Couldn't have happened to a nicer or more awesome girl!


Who was your favorite & Other Strangeness character?


TNMT and Other Strangeness RPG was cool. Good place to start gaming back then.


Both your avatar and the picture are looking towards your left and have a sorta smirk.

At least that's what I think he is getting at, bu what do I know I'm just here to make sure you all are remembering your fire safety.

How fortunate, I am running The Harrowing as a sidetrek within my Reign of Winter tonight. Now that would be veeery awkward if I had to say that it was written by a *former* Paizo employee, don't you think?

Sadly, no Hayley Atwell at our table. But we have my wife playing, and she's going to cosplay Agent Carter at an upcoming con...

I never realized that she left Paizo... shows you how much of a clue I have.

Calamity is an excellent name for a dog.

I just want to drop by and be a fanboy about how much I love the illustrations in "Secrets of Cats".

Just when she thought she was out, they dragged her back in.

Since faking his own death in Pawnee, Sebastian has remained elusive while continuing to walk the earth... righting wrongs, righting lefts, and righting tipped cows.

Awesome news! Welcome back.


Congrats

Does that mean that you will not be writing any more AP? Because I feel that will be a loss.
