Pathfinder backgrounds Monday, April 30, 2007And now, by popular request... Pathfinder desktop backgrounds! While a desktop is obviously a totally different size than a book, and certain design elements are still being finalized, these three images are perhaps the best preview to date of what the first three Pathfinder covers (including the alternate cover for volume 1) will actually look like. So while you're waiting for Burnt Offerings to release, why not download one of these and throw it...

...And the Dragon Comes in the Niiiiiight! Friday, April 27, 2007Just wanted to drop by and give you all a sneak preview of some brand new cover art we got in just in time for the weekend. They say a picture's worth a thousand words, but I'd wager that this one's worth about 22,000... which, incidentally, is how long Jason Bulmahn's W1: Conquest of Bloodsworn Vale module will be when it's all finished. In this 32-page adventure, heroes will be pitted against twisted, evil fey as they fight to...

Ye Gods! Thursday, April 26, 2007When we decided to set both Pathfinder and the GameMastery modules in the same unique campaign world, one of the first issues we as a staff had to tackle was the pantheon. As Pathfinder Editor-in-Chief James Jacobs regularly points out, without compelling deities, the game is much less fun—and not just for clerics. Before you can know anything about a person or culture, you have to know who's pulling the strings (or who they think is pulling them, anyway)....

Hail To The King Wednesday, April 25, 2007Kobolds have been around for a long time. From the ratlike little dog-men of the early editions, to the more recent incarnation as draconic lizards, these guys remain one of the game's favorite foils. Usually depicted as sneaky, conniving trap-makers, they also have a history of being cute, pathetic monsters struggling to find their place in the dungeon, usually at the bottom of the local food chain. When we went looking for an iconic monster to kick...

The First One's On Us

The First One's On Us What's better than a high-quality, full-color, 16-page adventure? A free one, of course!

Raising The Runelords or, How To Recover From a TPK and Make It Look Like You Planned It All Along Sunday, April 22, 2007Once upon a time, I was running one of my favorite adventures, White Plume Mountain, for my players. They messed up good, got split up, and ended up all being dominated by a certain vampire charged with guarding a certain hammer. Now, I didn't want to admit I had a TPK on my hands, so I took a cue form another favorite adventure, The Mud Sorcerer's Tomb, and introduced a...

Monsters Are to Pathfinder What Icing Is to Cake—Attic Whisperer

Monsters Are to Pathfinder What Icing Is to Cake Monday, April 23, 2007I've made no secret of my obsession for new monsters. I love them. I can never get enough of them. Will I ever use all the monsters I've collected through my decades of RPG enthusiasm? Absolutely not. But I wouldn't give up any of them. ... Unlike magic items or spells, new monsters are things that a GM can introduce into a game without fear that they'll disrupt a campaign. If they prove too lame (as was the case of my...

    Attention To Detail: The Story Behind Pathfinder's Supporting Material Saturday, April 21, 2007When coming up with the format for Pathfinder, one of the biggest questions we faced as a team was, Okay, adventure path, check—but what else is going to be in there? While we knew that the adventure that is the heart of each volume would grab people, that only accounts for a bit over half of each book. Something that's hard to grasp until you're actually staring down the...

... Cover illustration for volume 1. Click to enlarge. Reinventing The Wheel Friday, April 20, 2007Originally, the main menace in Burnt Offerings, the first Rise of the Runelords adventure, was going to be a tribe of kobolds, because let's face it—everyone loves kobolds. So much so, in fact, that they ended up being the bad guys for the first GameMastery Module, which hits the shelves two months before Burnt Offerings. Which is cool for Crown of the Kobold King, but left Burnt Offerings...

... Cover illustration for volume 2. Click to enlarge.What's Pathfinder All About? Thursday, April 19, 2007By this time, you've probably heard all about Pathfinder, Paizo's brand-new Adventure Path series. (If you haven't, of course, you should drop whatever you're doing and go check out paizo.com/pathfinder.) Yet even now that you know what's going to be in Pathfinder, you're probably wondering what it's all about. The vision behind it. Where its heart's at. And to answer that, we've brought...
