Pathfinder


I've said time and again that there's no such thing as too many options when it comes to material for GMs to speed up their game prep. Well, if you're a GM and you're looking for new baddies to throw at your players, you should check out the Monsters of Aquilae campaign that's going on now. What games do they cover? Quite a few, including Pathfinder, 5E, OSRIC, and Pathfinder Second Edition.

Gaming is fun. Saving money is fun. Giving to charity is fun. Toss them all together and you've got Humble Bundle. Paizo has teamed up with the famous helpers to bring you the Pathfinder Comics Cache. But it's more than just comic books. You can also get a whole wealth of Pathfinder books in the deal as well. Head on over, give to charity, and get literally dozens of books.

We're about 2/3 of the way through November. A lot of holidays are coming up, and there'll be plenty of new Starfinder and Pathfinder releases available for players to get as presents. Paizo's latest releases are now available. You can pick up some maps, some adventures, and the Starfinder Character Operations Manual.

When Paizo was coming out with the 2nd edition of Pathfinder, they had an extended public playtest to give everyone a chance to add their input into the formation of the game. Now, they're headed there again with the Advanced Character Guide. The public playtest is going on now. Go download the files and give them your thoughts.

You know, when you name your game Pathfinder Adventure Card Game and you have Adventures in it, you're bound to get redundant-sounding headlines like that. Anyway, Paizo's giving you a look at another of their ... Adventures in the card game. Best to know what you could get into ahead of time and choose your equipment and abilities accordingly.

Paizo Posts Pathfinder Perrata... I mean, Errata. As an editor, I know just how tought it can be to make sure a book is right when it goes to print. With easily dozens of versions of documents flying around, it's easy to have a version get sent that wasn't entirely what you wanted. Be it typoes that just didn't get spotted, rules that had been updated but the wrong document sent, or often just rules that seemed good at the time, but once you get them out there don't quite work how you wanted. Whatever the reason, an update is necessary, and that's just what Paizo's posted for you.

Just because a new edition of a game comes out doesn't mean that everyone gives up the older edition. There are many out there that still play and enjoy them. Take Pathfinder, for example. If you've got a group that's been playing for a while, you might want to stick with the 1st edition. Or, you might just not like what 2nd edition brought. Either way, it also doesn't mean that nothing new will come out for the game. Take, for example, Ascension Games' Path of the Wilds book that's up on Kickstarter now.

The Pathfinder Society is Paizo's regular RPG club. And, since it's all about Pathfinder, it includes adventures, of course. In this preview, we get a look at what they've been working on along those lines. And there's a cute fox flute player. So, it's got that going for it.

Players only have to worry about their character while the GM has to worry about literally every one else in the game. As such, it's handy to have guides and lists of NPCs that they can draw from. But it can get old with just Bartender #483 or Commoner #87309. Sometimes, you need something a little more complex. That's what Paizo's giving you in this preview of the Lost Omens Character Guide.

Paizo's filling up your trick or treat bags early this month. You can head over to your LGS and get yourself new releases for Pathfinder, Pathfinder Battles, and Starfinder now. Need some new terrain? They've got it. New character options for your Pathfinder character? You bet. New Starfinder adventure? Sure, why not? Some new minis to represent your fiends and foes? Check.

Puzzles. And I don't just mean jigsaw puzzles that you take forever to finish on your kitchen table. I mean all manner of puzzles. In an RPG, they can be a chance for the players to step back out of their characters for a bit and give their brains a real stretch. In this article, Paizo talks about the Puzzle Hunts they had at PaizoCon, posting up the rules for them. Have yourselve a look.

"Yeah, but is it what my character would do?"

We've all probably heard that at a gaming table before. Players are given an option or an course of action, and it all sorts of stops because someone isn't sure if their character would do it or not. That's fine, but it can sometimes be a question players have about their characters. In this preview of the Lost Omens Character Guide for Pathfinder, Paizo takes a look at helping with such questions.

Paizo is once more taking a look into the upcoming Lost Omens Character Guide with a society that sounds... incredibly familiar. You might know the Pathfinder Society from their regular missions and extras on the site, but they're also a part of the world, itself, as a group of adventurers that are all about searching through the different planes. In this preview, we get a look at just how they operate within the game itself.

It's always interesting to see who's working on the games we love. Over at Paizo, they've got quite a team working on products like Pathfinder and Starfinder. And there's been a lot of moving and shaking going on, with new hires and promotions happening all around. Go take a look at who's gone where and what they're working on now.

Sure, having a bunch of pre-made monsters can really help a GM with planning their gaming sessions. But sometimes that GM wants to make something purely specific for their own game. Sure, they can take bits and pieces from there and there, but it'd be nice if the various rules for creating monsters was in one, handy  spot. And that's just what we've got from Paizo. They've posted up the rules for making monsters and hazards in Pathfinder.

When creating Pathfinder 2nd Edition, Paizo had a lot of questions they wanted answered. What would it look like? How many changes would they make? What sort of system would they use? Was there such a thing as too much or too little change? In this article, Jason Bulmahn, Director of Game Design, talks about some of those questions and how the design team answered them as they went along.

It's maaaaaaaaagic! Something that really sets fantasy settings apart from the everyday world is the use of magic in all aspects of life. Sure, the little device in my pocket might seem like magic, but I still can't just hop on a carpet and go for a quick fly down the block. In this Lost Omens Character Guide, Paizo is showing off the Magaambya, an ancient magic society that will be featured in the new book.

Paizo has a pretty busy October planned, from the looks of the update they just posted. If you're wanting to know what's going on with the continued rollout for Pathfinder 2nd Edition, Starfinder and the Starfinder Society, and what events that the company will be attending this month, you'll definitely want to check out this post.

Silver Games sells their Ponyfinder books through DriveThruRPG. DriveThruRPG is having a huge sale on Pathfinder and Pathfinder-related materials. Ponyfinder is Pathfinder-related. Therefore, Ponyfinder materials are on sale over on DriveThruRPG. Pretty straight-forward this story is.

We're about 2/3 of the way through September. This month has been going by quickly. Seems like a good time to be showing off some releases. Paizo has posted up theirs, with a whole batch of products for both Pathfinder and Starfinder. From new books, to a new critical deck, to new maps. Have a look.

So, Pathfinder 2nd Edition's been out for a little over a month. You've maybe thought about picking it up, but haven't been sure. And if you did, where would you start? Or maybe you're a GM looking to get a group interested in this new version. Where do you begin? Well, Paizo is here to help. They've posted up a free-to-download Demo Adventure to help people get right into the game.

With Pathfinder 2nd Edition, Paizo's looking to expand the different ancestries (aka - races) that players can choose for their character. We've seen how they've added in Goblins, but that's not the only non-standard ancestry that they're adding. While it's not in the core book, Lizardmen will be making their way into the game as a playable ancestry. In this preview, we get a little look at what they'll be like.

Travel. How do you do it? These days, it's mostly cars and planes. But for your fantasy groups, it can be a lot more diverse. And while we have GPS, such things don't often exist in a medieval fantasy world. But there's ways around it, since there's also usually magic and magic items. In this look inside the Lost Omens World Guide, we get a look at some of the ways travel works in Pathfinder.

Have you ever wanted to get more in touch with nature? You might've played Druids or Rangers in your Pathfinder games. But that still may not have been enough. Well, if you're willing to wait a little bit, you can check out the Leshies Ancestry for Pathfinder that will be coming out in the Lost Omens Character Guide.

With Pathfinder 2nd Edition now being well established in many gaming groups, it's time to begin expanding on the core books some. Paizo is hard at work getting the next one ready. It's got a little time to go, but considering what's in it, it's no wonder it'll take some time. Bestiary 2 is coming, but not until April. What will you get for your wait? Well, not 100, not 200, and not even 300 monsters, but more than 350 to throw at your players (hopefully not all at once).
