Paizo General Discussion


Black Gate, the wonderful Sword & Sorcery publisher, has published an article on Paizo, focusing on the Rise of the Runelords AP, on their website (linked above). It seems a little late in the game, but is really cool. When two great companies come together, it's a beautiful thing.

Indeed. Great investigative journalism-- Mr Jacobs claims to have started playing 'in 5th grade' and 'in 1981' but that would have made him age 7 in 5th grade???

trying to gain some extra old school cred eh James?

pshaw dont you have enough cred?

maybe it is all a tissue of lies?

did you really have an adventure published in dungeon at age 14?

is it all a cunning web of deception??

are you even really James Jacobs!!

I'm 39 years old. 2011 – 1981 = 9 years old, not 7.

I learned to play D&D in 5th grade, actaully, because my teacher split the class up into groups, had us create characters, and then on lunch recess would run us through an encounter in a dungeon he designed using the blue box rules. After a group finished a room, he wouldn't run the NEXT encounter for that group until someone in that group wrote up the session as a short story. And since all of the groups were competing for the grand prize (the Power Sword!), that made for a very compelling reason for us to practice writing. It was a pretty ingenious way to get 5th grade kids to write. I was already into writing at that time, though, so my group kind of had it easy. Also, and I don't really like bragging, but I was the one who finally got the Power Sword out of the dungeon and back to the king.

And for those of you who are vexed that I "hate dwarves," that character... my FIRST EVER D&D CHARACTER... was a dwarf.

Anyway. Yeah, I got my first adventure published in Dungeon issue #12 when I was 14 years old or so. Good times!

ALSO: It was a blast doing that interview. I'm honored that Black Gate sought me out to do the interview in the first place. WOO HOO! :-)


Heh-heh. I never tire of hearing these kind of stories.

(See! Even then Jacobs was a glory hog!)

EDIT: I recommend the Black Gate site and periodical, and I think it is worth it for PF fans to keep checking back. Not the least reason is they keep adding content, and apparently are soon adding a piece discussing the upcoming PF Tales volume.
