This.

A hundred times this.

A hundred-thousand times this.

If you are publishing, you are starting a business and you are responsible for knowing your rights and responsibilities. That means consulting a lawyer. So it is probably best to get that right from the start. Talk to a lawyer before doing anything you cannot take back.

Dangers of a Forgotten Past Awakened in the Deep

When hobgoblin raiders kidnap a caravan full of workers and supplies, the adventurers set off to get them all back. But neither the raiders nor the adventurers know what terrifying horrors await them in the depths of their cavern hideout. Now, the adventurers must risk it all to prevent the minions of an ancient enemy from visiting death and destruction upon the land. Can the heroes rescue the captives from the hobgoblins and deliver them from this ancient foe—or will they all perish, ushering in the rise of a forgotten deity?

Rescue from Tyrkaven is the latest adventure module in Jon Brazer Enterprises’ Deadly Delves series, and is compatible with the best-selling Pathfinder Roleplaying Game. This adventure is designed to challenge four to five 2nd-level PCs who thirst for heroics… but they may find more than they bargained for in the process! Inside this volume, you’ll find:

  • 5 fully-developed new monsters for your Pathfinder campaign
  • A sinister new magic item, the book of dark obedience, that can set your adventurers onto an entirely new campaign
  • A full-color map of the caverns from which the hobgoblins terrorize the locals
  • Enough content to get a group of 2nd-level adventurers well on their way to 3rd level, with ideas to extend the story even further once you’re done exploring the caves

Dangers Unknown. Treasures Untold. Adventure Awaits.

You know, if memory serves, dimension door is a verbal only spell and and can be cast when grappled with no penalties or checks.

Oh, also, stop using single-monster encounters. Neutralizing an enemy via grapple is a lot less overwhelming when there's 3-4 more enemies to deal with at the same time. (Especially considering the grapple-guy is typically standing still with reduced AC for a couple rounds.)

Oh good one. Yea, if he has the wizard grappled, the fighter can stab him while he is grappling much easier. If he goes after the fighter, the wizard can compel him to let go and join their side.

What is possible to do?

  • Swarms,
  • incorporeals,
  • huge or larger monsters (since you can only grapple a creature 1 size larger than yourself),
  • Have a grapple monster grapple him for a change,

As GM I overlooked flying monsters for the longest time. I was bored all to heck then one day I pulled out a flying monster with a ranged attack and my group was literally useless. We discovered that less than half the group even had a ranged weapon.

Just a few suggestions.

Glad to see you are still publishing materials for Pathfinder despite what you wrote earlier this year :)

Oh we're still working on Pathfinder. Sure, it might not be the laser-like focus of the company that it was a 2-3 years ago, but everyone in the company is still solidly-adept with Pathfinder so it does not make much sense to abandon the game entirely.

These never-before published spell words were lost, but not for all time. With these 10 new spell words, your wordcaster gains greater versatility and power over their enemies.

This short supplement to the Words of Power system includes:

  • 3 effect words: burning light, enhance mind, and torch,
  • 7 meta words: coax, creature, disguise, easily cast, ectoplasmic, object, and persistent.

Find new power with these Lost Spell Words!

Word Casting. Having a flexible casting system would be really cool and word casting as it is NOW is just a DIFFERENT way to create some of the more iconic spells in Pathfinder... I would LOVE to see something more along those lines.

I have something coming out Tuesday that you might be interested in. ;)

Exactly as Richard said. Pick up the PDF and half of the proceeds go to the Food Bank of South Jersey. I support them since they are my local food bank. But if you would rather give to your local food bank, just post about it on social media with #AdventurersHelpingOut and I will send you the PDF for free.

The female elf is entirely too dressed. ;P

I specifically requested the artist make Darlanrea well clothed. The funny thing is that when I evaluated both Wizards' and Paizo's signature characters, I realized that both had male human fighters (yes, WotC also had Tordek and there is a good story behind that, but still). So I decided that I wanted my signature fighter to be female and non-human. An elf seemed a good choice. My first stipulation was that she must be sensibly-clothed for a fighter.

I guess I was also planning on using the term "hit points"/"HP", but surely that's universal enough to not worry about, right?

It all depends on how much risk you want to take on needlessly. Is a simple find/replace worth reducing the risk of not getting sued.

If you'd rather cover your butt, then I'd change it.

What's more important than a term here and a term there is did you copy sections of text? Did you copy the text that explains how rolling a d20 and adding a modifier gets you a skill check or a to hit number? Did you copy the descriptions of skills? When you explained what a level is or how you advance from one level to the next, did you copy that? Or what a race looks like? These are the questions you need to be asking yourself. The ones you're asking yourself are important, but they are secondary to the question: did you copy text?

Jiggy wrote:
My game has the above-cited similarites with Pathfinder/D&D. How do I make that be okay?

If the above are the ONLY similarities to D&D/PFRPG, then I'd say look them up in the dictionary. If the term can be found there and it means what you want it to mean, then you should be safe. But if you can't find it in the dictionary or the term means something else, then change it to something else.

President, Jon Brazer Enterprises

Disclaimer: I am not a lawyer and I have not seen your specific document so this is not legal advice.

Short of the long, the OGL is there to protect you. Including it and using proper referencing means you cannot be sued. Not including it and using material owned by another company (even if it is by shear accident), you can be sued. So stick with the OGL. Its safer and easier.

If I am reading what you wrote correctly, it sounds like you do not want to use the OGL with your game and are trying to figure out how to rename stuff so you do not get into legal trouble. If that is the case, this is the best advice you will get: throw everything you have written to date away, and start over from word 1, pretending that every other book out there does not exist; put everything in your own words.

Remember, mechanics cannot be owned by anyone. Its the way that those mechanics can be described that can be owned. So if throw everything away and start all over, the odds that your words will match something that someone else previously is nearly 0. However, if you look at someone else's work, even for a minute, you may inadvertently copy what they say close enough that you can get sued over it.

The alternative is to include a properly-cited OGL, which takes about 5 minutes and one extra page once you understand how it works.

Beware The Blackener Of Bright Waters, For She Is Come Again

Rumors of death move like a plague through the Crannogtowns of the Great Swamp—of ranger patrols mysteriously disappearing on routine scouting missions, of a winged shadow that blots out the midday sun, and of entire villages slaughtered, their homes left burning and the victims’ flesh melted from their bones. All evidence gathered from the sites of these massacres points to the heart of the Great Swamp, where an ancient and primitive tribe of lizardfolk have ruled from an abandoned human temple for centuries on end. The Crannogtowns’ protectors, the Stormhammer Rangers, warn that horrid half-dragon monstrosities still stalk the bogs and travelers would do well to stay away from the inner swamp. Yet the killing and the carnage continue, and the people of the Crannogs plead for heroes to aid them now as they did in days long forgotten. Are you up to the challenge?

Reign Of Ruin is the first full-length adventure module in Jon Brazer Enterprises’ Deadly Delves series, and is compatible with the best-selling Pathfinder Roleplaying Game. This adventure is designed to challenge four to five 7th-level PCs like no other content has to date. Inside this volume, you’ll find:

  • 20 fully-developed new monsters for your Pathfinder campaign

  • Three original traps and haunts, and two new magic items, including the sinister relic of unholy devotion and the awe-inspiring rainbow sceptre

  • Full-color maps of a Crannogtown village, as well as five floors of a terrifying temple dungeon

  • Specialized advice on playing a cunning black dragon against a group of PCs in a dangerous game of cat and mouse

  • Enough content to take a group of 7th-level PCs all the way to 9th-level, with ideas to extend the story even further once you’re done exploring the temple

I just realized that I never posted the link to Book of Heroic Races: Advanced Compendium Subscription at d20PFSRD.com

President, Jon Brazer Enterprises

My company, Jon Brazer Enterprises, released two supplements for the wordcasting system: Book of Magic: 10 Undead Spell Words and Book of Magic: Energy Words Revisited.

Before producing these, I played a wordcaster. Upon reading it, the system may not sound like a good idea, like it should be tweaked heavily, but it really does work well and is fun to play. Give it a try before deciding to modify it heavily.

IMO, the only real modification I thought was required was more standardization for the damage words. Specifically, a number of damaging spell words felt like they were at a certain spell level or a damaging spell also granted a certain condition so someone could make an exact vancian equivalent, which annoyed me. Book of Magic: Energy Words Revisited was what I felt was the fix the system needed. This is optimized the damage on its own merits and does not grant any conditions letting the player add on whatever they want.

Book of Magic: 10 Undead Spell Words, I created because I felt that there were not enough words that targeted undead creatures. If you're in an undead heavy campaign, there really is not much in the wordcasting system that really caters to you.

Being Friday, I thought we would do something a little different for today’s preview. I would like to take a moment to introduce you to our first signature character to grace the cover of one of our adventures. She is as tough as she is graceful and earns her place on this adventure, fighting against a terrifying black dragon. Here is a bit more about Darlanrea Moonbright.

This is the time of year in the U.S. when holidays are ubiquitous. We just passed Halloween, Veteran’s Day is upon us, Thanksgiving is coming soon, and a number of other religious and seasonal holidays are also coming up in December.

Amid all the celebrations and precious time with loved ones, please remember to give to those in need around you as well. The colder months of the year hit many families in need particularly hard every year. So we at Jon Brazer Enterprises are asking you to give to give to your local Food Bank. Food Banks, such as the Food Bank of South Jersey which is local to me, provide assistance to families in need throughout the U.S. all year long. Help someone to have a Merry Christmas or a Happy Holiday by giving to your local food bank (you can find more information about your local food bank at FoodPantries.org).

Since we’re gamers, let’s game this. Whenever you donate food, money, or time to your local food bank, make sure to tell your friends on Twitter, Facebook, and Google+ that you did so with the hashtag #AdventurersHelpingOut. As our thanks, we will send you a free copy of Book of Beasts: War on Yuletide.

Also, we are going to give as well. Half of all the proceeds from The Book of Beasts: War on Yuletide sold between now and November 30th from DriveThruRPG/RPGNow.com, Paizo.com, and d20PFSRD.com will go to the Food Bank of South Jersey.

So spread the word. Give your time, donate some food or money, and tell your gaming friends everywhere to give—and get some monsters for your holiday games, too!
