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.

When you're the GM, you're responsible for everything in the game that isn't the PCs. That can be a lot of work. When you're playing Starfinder, that means you're in charge of an entire universe. And when those PCs go planet-hopping, it can be difficult to come up with an entirely unique world at the drop of a hat. That's where the Deck of Many Worlds comes in. It's designed for GMs to create worlds with just a quick card shuffle. Have yourselves a look.

Now, playing Starfinder can be as easy as simply asking Alexa to start a game for you. No need for grabbing the group together. You can just talk to your house and it'll begin. Paizo has released this entirely new way to play. And it's not just a start with no continue planned. There'll be more coming in January.

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.

Next week, the next set of official Starfinder miniatures will be coming from Archon Studio. If you're looking to get some starfaring miniatures, you can go get your pre-orders in now.

Next week, you'll be able to start playing Starfinder by simply stating your intention to do so, even if you're all alone in your home. No, you won't be going crazy, you'll be playing Starfinder on your Amazon Alexa. Yes, the popular sci-fi RPG is going to be available on the smart home device and all you'll have to do is say, "Alexa, play Starfinder!" to get going.

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.

Hard to think that we're less than a month from 2020. Also hard to think of how I played Super Baseball 2020 all those decades ago and yet, here we are in what seemed like "so far in the future" at that point. Anyway, enough reminiscing. PaizoCon is coming up. It's everything Paizo, and tickets are available now.

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.

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.

Having options for your character is what every player in an RPG wants. That's exactly what Starfinder players are getting with the Character Operations Manual. New classes, new options for existing classes, new feats, new spells, new equipment, new roles for starship combat. It's got a bit of everything. This isn't one to miss.

There's a lot of iconic characters in the Pathfinder Adventure Card Game from Paizo. They've been running an article series about some of them over on their website. Their latest one is up and it's about Virian Jeggare from the Curse of the Crimson Throne Adventure Path. Have yourself a look.

Wake up. Grab your brush, put a little makeup. It's the things we take for granted for our RP characters. They're not -always- adventuring, swinging swords or shooting blasters. There's downtime, too. In this article for the upcoming Character Operations Manual for Starfinder, Paizo takes a look at new downtime systems to make them more interesting than just "time passes."

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.

The Character Operations Manual coming soon for Starfinder has, as one would expect, a bunch of new options for characters in the game. A major aspect of any character is their Class. Well, the Manual has several new ones for players to pick. Have yourself a look at a preview of these new options.

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.

I'm human. You're human. We're all human. And each of us is different. However, when it comes to races in RPGs, they tend to boil down entire races and species into a single set of traits you put on your character. Well, Paizo knows that that's not the best and is giving players more racial options for the different core races from the Starfinder book in the upcoming Character Operations Manual. In this preview, we get a look at just what some of those options will look like.

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.
