We all tyop from time to tiem. That's just life. Most of the time, it just leads to a nonsense word. However, occasionally, you can create a real gem with a typo. Well, the folks at Paizo have been saving some of these typoes and turning them into monsters for Pathfinder. They've got full stats and you can add them to your game now.
I know for a fact that you can still play your RPGs while practicing social distancing. I played just this past weekend, for example, while nobody was in the same apartment as me. And since you can still get pdfs without having to worry about shipping woes. So, Paizo's got their Spring Social event going on where you can save on their products over in their webshop.
Like every company, Paizo's been affected by the COVID-19 pandemic. They've posted an update about how things are going over there. Long story short: no physical shipments for 2 weeks, PaizoCon for this year is cancelled, you can still get pdf purchases right away so you can game while you're at home.
Paizo is making their way looking through the Extinction Curse adventure path for Pathfinder. In this deep-dive, they are holding their breath and headed into Life's Long Shadows, the third volume in the group.
Normally, the different monsters and other creatures added to RPGs are out there to attack the party in some form. But with how things are right now, Paizo thought about going a different direction by adding the Amabie to Pathfinder. This is a much more friendly character that your party can come across.
We're always looking to the future. Paizo certainly is, as they're planning on coming out with a new Beginner Box for Pathfinder in November. Is that a long way away? Sure it is. But I can't wait for it. That's my favorite time of year. But Thanksgiving aside, we'll also be able to pick up this new set to get your friends into the game quickly and easily.
Paizo is continuing their look into the Extinction Curse (todaaaaaaaaaay's going to be the greeeeeeeeeatest day of your liiiiiiiife) Adventure Path. This time, they're doing a deep dive into the Legacy of the Lost God adventure for it. If you're interested in running this for your group, you should check out the article.
Having pre-made adventures, and even just encounters, ready to pull out at a moment's notice can really make the life of a GM much, much easier. And that's what we've got here. Paizo has posted up a new Pathfinder encounter using items from their Bestiary Pawn Box and Bestiary Battle Cards. And this one's free to download. So, why not take a look?
Paizo's Extinction Curse adventure path for Pathfinder has a lot of twists and turns, including a detour into a circus. They've been going into a lot of detail about this adventure, and now it's time to go further still. They've posted up an article that looks into different aspects of the path, and particularly, that circus adventure, The Show Must Go On.
While the main Pathfinder book gives you pretty much everything you need to play or run a game, the Gamemastery Guide is dedicated to giving GMs a whole host of new tools to up their game to not just the next level, but a couple levels. All the way from the basics to NPCs to variant rules, it's got everything a GM needs.
Recently, the folks over at Paizo had a Twitch stream where they collectively with the audience built themselves a monster for Pathfinder. The Ailurans are what they came up with. This new monster has been created mostly by you, the players, and is now ready to take its place in your campaigns. Paizo's posted up its full stats and information on their website.
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.
