Hey folks, be sure to review it. The folks who submitted art and articles would love to know that folks read and enjoyed what they created.

And enjoy!

Thank you Tim!

RPG Superstar 2012

Thanks Tim, editors, writers and artists!


Nearly a hundred pages of Wayfindery goodness! :D

Albatrocity? Nice!

Edit: D'oh! I made a mistake on the Arcane Anglerfish. XP should be 4,800, not 2,400. >_<


Congratulations to all who appeared and who downloaded this one. It's a real treat!

Indeed! Though some may ask, "Where's Ezren?" I like to believe he's the big red guy in the center and that's just a practice session.

Congrats and thank you!


Adventure Path Charter Subscriber

Super cool guys! Thanks for the hard work Tim!


Having only skimmed through it I can say this is a most impressive piece of work. Even though the running theme bounces between Ulfen and Shackles I can certainly say you've given me a good deal of material to think about and work with for the Skull & Shackles game I'm running right now. Awesome work!

Wayfinder may only come but twice a year, but boy is it always worth the wait.

Shadow Lodge

Thanks again to Tim for putting this together and special thanks to Stephen Wood whose art really was a great surprise!

Bubbling awesomeness!

Just now getting to read and jumping back and forth.

Awesome job, Timitus! :)

The Ulat-Ashad hits a seemingly impossible but perfect balance between "could be a guy in a rubber suit in a 50's B-movie" and "disturbing cosmic horror with that always unsettling three-eyes-in-a-row thing". Love it. :) The origins for those things are tone-perfect too. Their place of origin sounds like the perfect place for a survival horror based game.

I know some gnome players that'll probably want to see "A Crew To Defend Her".

That art on page 25 really caught my eye. Gotta be the coolest looking ratfolk we've seen yet. (and one frighteningly badassed looking half-orc to boot) Need to point our Skull and Shackles GM to this and the whole issue ASAP.

I really want to find a way to use some of Into The Cannibal's Maw in our next campaign now.

Mythic Adventures cover in the back!

Oh man, vegepygmy article and variants...gonna have to sit down with this one.

Awesome stuff guys. :D

Being a bit of a pirate fanboy, the art in this issue is simply stunning!

Now to curl up, hot mug of tea and nice long read.

Scarab Sages

Absolutely stunning. Breathakingly good. Wow.
Thanks for all everyone's hard work making this wonderful thing happen.


Yay! Thany you so much to Crescentmooon for the art! That makes my Sea Captain much better! :D

Checked it out! The book looks great. Fire Mountain Games any myself remain ecstatic to be a part of Wayfinder in our small way.

Great job, Tim.

Congratulations, sir.

These just keep on getting better and better. Kudos across the board!

Editor-in-Chief

So fricken' cool! There's a lot of brilliant in here it's going to take me a while to digest.

LOVE the name "Albatrossity!" :)

Grand Lodge

I loved this. And it was nice to see Gary McBride, of Fire Mountain Games (Way of the Wicked) fame do another team-up and explain how Crimson Throne could be an all underwater campaign.

Love the comments and praise for the contributors, folks. Thank you all and thanks to all the contributors as well.

Now who will be the first to put in a review? ;)

Sovereign Court

This will be great for my Razor Coast game.

Bravo!


This is a fantastic issue of Wayfinder. The quality of these always reminds me of the heyday of Dragon/Dungeon under Paizo oversight. I really wish Wayfinder could be in print, I'd love to physically flip through it.

Well, if you needed another reason to do so, come to PaizoCon. ;)

The odd numbered issues go to print for distribution to PaizoCon attendees.

I can't thank Mike Lowe enough for his outstanding image of Ceindra, Inquisitor of Shelyn, to go with my story, "Precious Cargo." Simply wonderful.


Neat stuff! Thanks to Carlos Torreblanca for his awesome rendition of the terrifying squid helm! I hope people get great use out this issue.


Pathfinder Adventure Path Subscriber

I'm so happy and proud to be part of this fantastic magazine.

Thanks to Silvia Gonzalez, Todd Wescott and last but not least William Dodds for the great artwork adorning my submissions.

Special thanks to all the people involved making this happen!

Ruyan.


It's Liz "HerosBackpack" Smith actually.

And I love the artwork for Halfen - thanks.

(also contributors to the print Wayfinder can get a copy even if they don't go to the con. At least, that was the case last time.)

I'd post a review, but I think I'm a bit biased. :P


Do it!

Ah, OK, making note ...

And yes, contributors also get a physical copy of the odd numbered issues ... but it's also and other reason to come to PaizoCon! ;)

RPG Superstar 2012

Thanks to Becky Barnes for the albatrocity, Sven Fredrik Svensson for the doomed derelict, and Crystal Frasier for the ship's cat! They all looked fantastic. :D


Thanks to all the editors, contributors, illustrators and layout artists and those who read/peruse Wayfinder #8! 96 pages of awesome goodness!

I second the props to Carlos Torreblanca for the squid helm illo. Fantastic!!!

Silver Crusade

Thanks to Crystal Frazier for the Aequoreal's art. So content looking. :D

All the artists, editors, and layout folks did an awesome job. Like it was said upthread, it feels a bit like the Dragon days. :)

I posted this on the social sites, but I think it bears reposting it here, as well:

Enjoying your new Wayfinder issue? Why not post a review of it at the Paizo store?

Honestly, a lot of people contribute to each and every issue, for no payment whatsoever. What they really want is to hear from fellow fans reading their stuff, looking at their illustrations, turning the pages that they laid out....they want feedback. It lets them know that HEY PEOPLE SAW MY WORK!

If you LIKE something in the issue, let the contributor(s) know. It really makes their day! If you didn't like something, let us know that too, so we can make issue #9 that much better! But the key thing here is to tell us. And a review is a good a place as any to do that.

Lastly, thank you for reading Wayfinder! Remember, we have EIGHT issues, and they are all free to download, so if you haven't read earlier ones, they are available, and did I mention FREE?

Thanks everyone,

Tim

Also, I really need to thank all my volunteer "staff". Dain (zylphryx) spent some looong nights there at the end getting this put together, and Garrett came in on short notice and cranked on the layout as well. It looks a good as it does thanks to them.

The articles are spit polished thanks to all the editors I had helping me, plus some extra "eagle-eye" proofers at the end.

And thanks to everyone who submitted an article, whether I accepted it or not. This is a fanzine, and YOU give it the content. Well done!

Lastly, I really need to thank those artists. I had the pleasure of hand-picking most of these artists for the issue, and the talent was in full bloom on this issue. I cannot tell you how many times I received EXACTLY the art I asked for in the assignment, and gave out a "OH YEAH!! RIGHT ON!!!" Many, many times. Especially that cover. Frank Hessefort is a wonder to behold, folks. Watch this guy...seriously. And take note of Tanyaporn Sangsnit, too. This Bangkok gal has amazing talent, which is why I wanted her to illustrate the character for the cover!

So, thank you to everyone for all the hard work. And thanks to you, the fans, the readers, for the kind words, and for continuing to WANT another Wayfinder issue. It really is a fanzine BY Paizo Fans FOR Paizo Fans.

Now, if we could just win a damned ENnie.....

T'is true - even if you live in far-far-away-land. Tim managed to organize a copy for me and it's sitting prominently on my shelf right now.

Btw, thanks again for getting the Razorweed right, Tim! I can't wait to unleash it in my game when my group attempts to reach Candlemere Tower...
