Hello everyone. I'm Zuxius, founder and editor over at Pathfinder Chronicler.

Welcome to our official Paizo thread for the length of the Pathfinder Fiction Contest 2015.

I just want to say that being part of the Pathfinder Community has been an amazing experience through the years. At Pathfinder Chronicler, we write fiction centered around the world of Golarion. These contests we run generate content for our Anthologies and our website. Every year, a top five from the contest are selected to go forward to Paizo Editor Chris Carey. Chris selects the winners, and then we award 100 dollars in Paizo Gift Certificates to the first place winner, and we award 50 dollars in gift certificates to second and third place. We have done this without fail for the past five years.

In addition to winning our contest, or participating, for that matter, we also look for stories that we feel will make an excellent volume to be displayed at PaizoCon 2016. Currently we have four Volumes of works that you can get at Paizo Fans United.

This year's contest started back in May and is due to complete September 12th.
For information on how to enter our contest, follow the link I'm providing here: Pathfinder Fiction Contest Details.

This will be the sixth and final contest we will run. It has been quite a run, but we feel that it is time for us to work with all the talent we've amassed throughout the years, and go in a new interesting direction.

I, personally, have overseen five of these contests and Robert Gresham (Malikjoker) oversaw our contest back in 2012. No single contest is ever the same. This year we are featuring:
The Age of Destiny -3470 AR to 1 AR.

We hope you enjoy our theme choice. It is virgin territory to explore unique stories with options to blaze a new trail. We hope to see entries that stretch the imagination and tinkle our brains.

Pathfinder Chronicler holds the largest fan made Pathfinder Fiction base to date. Don't take my word for it though, check out our stories on our Website:
Pathfinder Chronicler Stories.

Thank you everyone for making our last five years of contests absolutely amazing! Best of luck to you in our final contest and I hope we'll be reading you soon!

I have tremendously enjoyed writing and editing with my colleagues at Pathfinder Chronicler. I have had the great fortune to co-edit Anthology Volumes II and III with Zuxius and to take the lead on bringing our most recent Volume IV to fruition at this past PaizoCon. I have learned so much from editing and developing stories with our very talented writers, and the feedback and support from the community at large has been so wonderful. The opportunity to discuss our work with Paizo staffers such as James Sutter, Chris Carey, Wes Schneider, and James Jacobs has also been invaluable. Thank you so much for welcoming our contributions to the Paizo fan community.

I greatly look forward to judging in this final contest, and I cannot wait to see the history of Golarion during the Age of Destiny come to life in the works of our contestants. Thank you so much for your hard work and for contributing. Let's make this anthology the best one yet!


This sounds great. Good luck to all the participants!

Looking forward to reading the final product as always. I was a bit saddened I didn't have enough space in my luggage to get the newest poster at PaizoCon this year.

I think I've finally thought of a good angle for my story. With 26 days until deadline, I'm actually ahead of the game this year.

Don't worry, Thomas. We will still have the posters available next PaizoCon.

Also, that's great to hear, Andrew! I am so looking forward to reading all this year's entries!

I always find out about these things too late to participate....

Just one week left. I must admit, the time has just flown by.

We'll see what this contest will bring.

Will be down to the wire with me.

Last contest?

Does this mean the end for the Anthologies?
