Welcome to the Pathfinder messageboards!
This is the place to discuss current, past, and upcoming Pathfinder Adventure Paths, share tactics with other DMs using these adventures, and gab about anything and everything to do with Pathfinder! We've also got a discussion folder specifically for our specific Adventure Paths, where fans can discuss tips and tricks with others running the same campaign.
Our editorial staff reads this board frequently, and we'll do our best to answer questions posted here. We're always open to suggestions about how to improve Pathfinder, so take a few minutes to let us know what you think of where we've been and where we're going.
We'd like to foster a positive, friendly community here at paizo.com, so please be polite in your postings. By policing ourselves we can make sure the signal-to-noise ratio stays high, and we can prevent some sort of overly-moderated catastrophe community.
