The Worldwound Gambit
Illustration by Daren Bader

Here at the Paizo headquarters, we know that our community is made up of busy folks. (After all, we're insanely busy, and we work at a company that makes books about goblins.) We know that the average person surfing our website probably has half a dozen tabs open, is following a dozen different messageboard conversations, is scrolling through his or her email—all while trying to look productive in case the boss walks by.

Which is why we're switching things up to save you one extra mouse-click per week! Yes! Starting next week, we're going to begin serializing the weekly web fiction as part of the Paizo blog, making it that much easier for you (or your RSS reader) to catch each installment. You'll still be able to find both the latest episode and the whole archive of free web fiction stories collected under the "web fiction" tab at the top of this page, but now it'll pop up here as well.

But that begins next week, with Robin Laws's "The Ironroot Deception." This week, we've got a different Robin-related treat: a sample chapter from his newly released Pathfinder Tales novel The Worldwound Gambit. Click here to get a first look at veteran con man Gad as he attempts to put together the perfect team of thieves and scoundrels for a job in the demon-infested Worldwound—folks like an obsessive and socially oblivious halfling lockbreaker, or a demon-hunting bard-turned-junkie. And of course, as this chapter reveals, no con would be complete without some heavy artillery in the form of an insane, pyromaniac spellcaster...

HALF-a-dozen tabs open? I didn't think we had that many slackers around here.

I often keep 4 to 10 tabs open. I'll scroll down the messageboard and open every thread I want to read in its own new tab, then close them as I read them.

I haven't been reading the web fiction though, and putting it in the main blog likely isn't going to make me start, just because I don't like reading stories online.

I do look forward to the Pathfinder Tales short story print compilation though, should such ever see publication.
