Digital Content Enters a New Era!

Wednesday, December 2, 2015

Running Pathfinder games is about to get a lot easier, as Pathfinder content goes digital in a way never seen before. Lone Wolf Development and Paizo have teamed up to establish a new digital standard by delivering Pathfinder content through Realm Works, the ENnie award-winning campaign suite.

This new partnership will make the entire Pathfinder portfolio available through the upcoming Realm Works Content Market. Pathfinder Adventure Paths, Modules, Campaign Setting volumes, Player Companions, and rulebooks alike can soon be used in ways GMs have only dreamed of. The Content Market will debut in early 2016 with some of your favorite Pathfinder Adventure Paths and Modules, after which we'll begin introducing rules and setting material.

So Why Should You Care?

What sets Realm Works apart from PDFs, Wikis, and other options? Consider just a few ways Realm Works takes digital content to a whole new level:

  • Make It Yours—formerly static, published content is now fully customizable, so there's no need for stickies or maintaining separate notes
  • Integrates with Your World—seamlessly weave published content into your own campaign, with everything in one convenient place
  • Instantly Find Anything—readily explore your realm through extensive links and relationships, full-text searching, and tag-based filtering
  • Navigate with Maps—simply click on map pins to view the details of a location, or quickly navigate to the map containing a specific place
  • Ready to Share with Players—no more extracting pictures from a PDF, masking out portions of maps, or repeating details multiple times while players take copious notes; reveal details with a few mouse clicks during the game and even let players access material in-between sessions
  • Know What's Known—track what information the players have (and haven't) learned with ease, including explored map regions
  • Organized for GMs—efficiently access everything needed to run an adventure; Realm Works does all the heavy lifting, converting a traditional module to content that can be readily used at the table
  • Instant Session Recaps—review a complete rundown of what the players learned in previous sessions

Customize published content to fit your game

Use maps to find important details about locations

Track what your players discover by clicking the "Reveal" button from grey to green

Content is organized for GMs and by the people, places, events, and things within the world

With Realm Works, your entire world is literally just a few clicks away.

The Next Step

In a few short weeks, we'll be launching our "Realm Works Spotlight Series." This weekly update will outline our Content Market release plans, showcase Pathfinder and other products in Realm Works, and preview key Realm Works features.

See for yourself what the future holds, and sign-up for the Spotlight Series today! In the meantime, you can discover why thousands of GMs rely on Realm Works. Watch our Virtual Tour and get a taste of what Realm Works can already do for your games!

I could be misunderstanding what you'd like here, though. :(

I'd like to find this again later, when I have the time to flesh out the fluff around those 2 dungeons :-)


What's the projected price point. I see the gm version is $50, and includes 6 months cloud service free, but what kinda damage are we looking for the APs and standalones?

Outch $50+x will buy me a lot of paper and toner.

Is this only going to include PFRPG Adventure Paths, or is it possible to include some of the older APs? I desperately want to run Curse of the Crimson Throne once I finish my current campaigns, and I want to use Realm Works to organize it. If I could just buy that instead of filling it in myself, it would be wonderful.

A Pawn set would be nice too, but that's a different topic entirely. :P


Yea the 3.5 APs would be nice (maybe with a little, light updating?)

Cloud service is purchased by the GM, but is separate from from the GM version. Currently, when you purchase Realm Works you receive 6 months free. After those six months, you can choose to purchase additional cloud service or you can choose not to. Cloud service is not required to use Realm Works.

Thanks for the clarification! That will really help when I start using the program.

The older adventures are going to be driven by demand. After the initial launch, we'll be seeking user feedback on how to prioritize stuff from there. I'd recommend signing up for our Spotlight Series. We'll talk about what content will be included in the initial launch.

The first installment of the Realm Works Spotlight Series is here! You can read it on our website, or watch the first episode on our YouTube channel.


This thing looks well-designed, without a doubt, but seems to me to be over complicating a hobby that should take place mostly in the imagination. Computers have certainly enhanced the role playing experience to some degree (entire library of books on an iPad, digital character sheets), but then the temptation is to over utilize them. I've watched YouTube videos of people using all this other stuff, and it's sad to me how far away from the fun, imaginative hobby some groups have drifted.

Remember that some people don't/can't actually play in-person. Online tools can be the difference between playing and not playing. Also, it's an interesting evolution away from the tree-murdering handouts-that-inevitably-get-lost-between-sessions-so-can-you-print-me-anot her-map-please of old.

Personally, I use my imagination for what's going on, not "what's the name of the queen's chambermaid again?"

Not that I'm the target demographic personally, but I wanted to take the opportunity to offer some insight before telling you to get off my damned lawn.

This is the main reason I'm interested in this. My group can get together once, maybe twice a month and a solid way to organize and present everything that has been discovered or waits to be discovered would be amazing.


If the Giantslayer AP is available before we get too much further into our campaign then I hope to pick up the GM version and the AP data, as well as the player version for my group. We're still just over half way through book 1, but I don't want to by the AP data if we're too much further than that. And if I don't buy the Giantslayer AP data, then it'll probably be quite a while before I'll have need for RealmWorks.

I'd love to pick it up now anyway, but I don't have a large amount of funds and don't want to waste my Cloud Service time waiting for the AP to come out.

If anyone knows of a better place to put in requests for which APs are high on the list I'd be more than happy to move these comments over there!

Looks interesting... something very long overdue!


Overdue like this week's Spotlight. ;)


the new spotlight is up and it looks good, but a buy in for players isn't something I'm willing to do. I know that a web based viewer is in the mix, but until I hear more about that I can't see doing more than admiring it from afar.


Did this die on the vine?
