The land to the east is the home of the beast folk. They started from nothing to create just a little plot of land that they could call their own to homestead. Now, your characters can go and see what they're up to in Untamed Lands, the new expansion book for Ponyfinder. It's got not just info about the people and the region, but new gear, new spells, new class options, and more. You can pick up your copy now.
Again with the Primus vibes. Todaaaaaaaay's going to be the greeeeeeeeeeeeatest day of your liiiiiiife.
Anyway, the circus is in town and funny things are happening. Paizo's Extinction Curse adventure path takes players to the Startsone Isles and the Circus of Wayward Wonders. They've posted up an article with a couple videos, a bunch of links, and just various information to get you all you need to know about this book. Have yourselves a peek.
I know. Kind of a weird title, but that's basically what you're getting. Game books have a certain limit that they can be, realistically. And only so much can fit into them. As such, stuff usually needs to be cut out. But that can be some really premium stuff! Lost Omens Gods & Magic has such "leftover content," and Paizo has decided to spruce them up into their own pdfs (that really have no limits) and give them to you for free.
It goes without saying that behind every book is a talented staff of writers and editors who bring it to your tabletops. Most of the time, we don't know much more about them than a name on a cover or credits page. Well, Paizo is looking to get you to know their staff a bit better. They've posted up a little article with all the authors that helped with Gods & Magic. Have a look.
Many people all over the world are Polytheistic. That means that there's multiple gods that they will pray to on a regular basis, and possibly many more that they believe in but don't specifically worship. While many fantasy realms are polytheistic ones, most RPGs still expect your characters to simply follow one. But what if you want a polytheistic character? Well, in the upcoming Lost Omens Gods & Magic book from Paizo for Pathfinder, you'll be able to do that.
This post is just setting off all my Primus senses. Extinction Curse is like Extinction Burst. The circus makes me think of Mr. Krinkle and Prof. Nutbutter. It's just all going on. But while I have rockin' bass licks going through my brain, let's talk about the free-to-download Extinction Curse Player's Guide now available from Paizo. If you're playing on the adventure path of the same name, this is an invaluable resource. But even if you're not, it's new options for your characters. So, why not check it out?
Todaaaaaaaay's going to be the greeeeeeeeeeeeeeatest day of your liiiiiiiiiiiiiiife!
The Age of Ashes adventure path for Pathfinder is coming to an end. For those that have been journeying along, the final reckoning is at hand. Though, even if you've not played the other 5 adventures in this campaign, you can still use Broken Promises to add some spark to your games. This new adventure is available now.
Praying to the gods is a major part of many character's stories in Pathfinder. And not just the Clerics and Paladins who have dedicated their life to their deity of choice. But how should GMs handle it when deus ex machina comes a-callin'? In the upcoming Lost Omens Gods and Magic book, there's what are called Divine Intercessions. In this article, we get a look at just how they work.
And I have Jury Duty!
So I'm doing my best to get through all these posts super-early before I have my day in court. Thankfully, it's only in the jury box. But anyway, before I go do my civic duty, I've got a terrain story for you.
Maps Your Party Will Die For Up On Kickstarter
Though the nights are getting long and cold, that's not stopped the Paizo goblins from continuing their work. They're showing off this month's releases for Pathfinder and Starfinder. There's some new adventures. There's a pocket monster guide (a Pokemon guide, if you will). There's some new maps. It's a bit of everything to check out.
This time of year (well, any time of year, really), we all want to save some money and make each dollar go a little further. When you get on board the Humble Bundle train, you can really get some great stuff for little money, and of course, it goes to a good cause. Paizo has a new Pathfinder Humble Bundle going on now. Have yourselves a look.
More resources are never a bad thing when it comes to being a GM. The more you can look at and use for your game, the better. So, if you're a Pathfinder GM and you're looking for a new campaign, you should check out Ennervain, a new one that's up on Kickstarter now. It's a new, dark-fantasy world full of modern takes on classic issues.
Many of you have purchased and enjoyed reading the various books from Paizo, especially the Lost Omens World and Character Guides. You might be curious as to the people behind the book. Who are the authors? What are they like? What are their hopes and dreams and aspirations? What's their browser history like? Well, Paizo might not be giving you -that- deep a look into all of that, but they're giving you some in this little "virtual meet 'n' greet" with their authors.
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.
