Definitely sad to see Paizo lose such a talent, but really glad for your continued work and system mastery put to use on other projects, Mark! I've been a big fan of your creations and commentary for years, so congratulations on the move!

Thanks so much everyone! Today was my last day at Paizo and we had a send-off call. Lots of memories over 8 years. I hope to keep working with my friends at Paizo on plenty of more books in the future as a freelancer, and I am extremely excited about what I have coming up for Battlezoo (I mean I'm already excited about the dragons, but there's more that's possibly even more exciting)!

I won't say goodbye because I'll be sticking around on the paizo.com community, just not as a golem any more. In some ways, not being at Paizo might mean I can speculate alongside all of you more often!

Welcome back then I guess ;-)

You are responsible for my favorite Pathfinder classes and content of both editions. I have a close friend who feels the same way as we frequently nerd out about the many cool concepts your work has enabled.

I still have a fond memory of Pathfinder 2E's Gen Con launch. When my dimwitted barbarian dwarf "punched the universe back together" and caused such an uproar of laughter at the table that you strode over and said "I was about to ask if you guys were having fun, but..."

I'm excited for the awesome stuff you're working on for Battlezoo, and I can't wait to see what you will surprise us with next!

Battlezoo and I made sure my new job wouldn't have a noncompete and would explicitly allow freelancing and independent projects, so I'll definitely stick around and keep writing for Paizo too! But this lets me pursue some really exciting projects with more creative control to try some more unusual ideas (like PC dragons, that's totally a thing we're doing!) and like Kobold Catgirl said, the compensation is also better with less crunch. All around an amazing opportunity and team-up, but I'll be sad to leave my friends at Paizo at the same time.

Your amazing writing was surpassed only by how amazing of a person you are. Bust of luck in your future endeavors.


I'm glad Paizo had you for the time that they did as the games are better for it. You did good work.
Enjoy the new job and all that goes with it.

I think I still remember that from among the tables I visited that year, since it reminded me of the time during my playtest stream where they wound up beating up math :D

:o Thanks Dale!

Dale published one of my earliest 3rd party products, Book of Heroic Races Reapers (a psychopomp planar scion back before the duskwalker after I had thought Paizo had said psychopomp planar scions weren't a possibility). Still have fond memories of that project!
