About N'wah

N'wah (alias Ashton Sperry) founded the Pathfinder Paper Minis line somehow, and has flopped and flailed at doing much else, with occasional minor success.

Pathfinder Paper Minis has long since moved from Ashton's hands. The current sets, erted mostly by other, far more talented artists, can be found here. If you have any questions or comments, Ashton doesn't know who might be the person to ask now that Liz has moved on to greener pastures. But if the issue's especially egregious, let them know at and maybe they can point you to the right place?

Paizo Freelance Works

Recently Completed: ???
Out Now: Khagrig Daybreak, Gendowyn, the Broken Lands, and Other Campaigns, Knights of Lastwall
Other Works: Animal companion and companion items, Tesyovensku's warehouse, Lost Omens: Grand Bazaar; Kevoth-Kul, sovereign steel, and the Blade of the Black Sovereign, Lost Omens: Legends

With regards to non-freelance writing, Ashton is particularly proud of The Mythos Notes of Astrapi Mirous, the complete illustrated journal of their Strange Aeons character, Astrapi Mirous. At over 170,000 words and some 200-ish illustrations, it's by far their most prolific project to date. You can find all the entries so far in the above thread, or hop directly to the Google Drive here:

The Mythos Notes of Astrapi Mirous

Past projects include the vast pile of non-canonical jibber-jabber spewed forth in the inaccurately-named Totally Awesome N'wah Akiton Runelords Idea Thread, which also led to the following PDF, produced under the Community Use License and hopefully not worth a lawsuit if they somehow accidentally breached it:

Cities of Akiton: Arl

Once, a long time ago, Ashton started this thread and lo and behold a mere five-ish years later, Iron Gods was announced. So clearly they're a bit of a big deal.

NOTE: In no known universe has Ashton ever been considered a big deal.

Ashton also plays in home games with a surprising amount of celebrity gaming talent and secret masterminds, of which the local scene has several. This is important, as over twenty years in the hobby has left them very, very tired. They've seen how the sausage is made. You do not want to know how the sausage is made.

N'wah has several unique, although relatively useless, special abilities. These are described below, and will never appear in a sourcebook, because no one in their right mind would want them.

Animal Ally (Dogs) (Ex): Ashton has gained the service of a small dog animal companion named Simon, and another named Kailie. Ashton's starting disposition to any canine is, at worst, friendly; a canine's disposition to Ashton is at least one step higher than normal for an unfamiliar humanoid.

Autodidactic (Ex): N'wah adds half their class level (minimum 1) on all Knowledge skill checks and may make all Knowledge skill checks untrained. However, they cannot spend skill points in these skills. Hey, it sounded like a decent trade-off at 1st level.

Berk (Ex): Ashton suffers from that old 2E Planescape Bleak Cabal problem where they've gotta roll a d20 every morning and if they roll a 1, they're struck with ennui. Except sometimes it's a d12, or a d10, or a d8, or a d6, or a d4. Or, let's be honest, a d2. They still make the coffee and get the family up each day, however. So... yay?

Ex-Beer Folk (Ex): N'wah has a finely-honed palette and can discern the quality of beers by taste as a full-round action. However, swallowing any quantity of glutinous beer leaves them sickened for 12 hours after consuming them, as their Celiac disease prevents them from consuming products containing gluten.

Since our master left, we have been reading other texts.

For old art, maps, handouts, and better than expected gaming aids, please see their deviantART site. Thanks!
