Your character. If you're not the DM, it's pretty much everything you have in an RPG. So, it's important that your character is built the way you want. But how do you go about making one? That's an extremely important question, and one that's answered in this article from Piazo about building characters in Pathfinder 2nd Edition.
August 1st. That's when Pathfinder: Second Edition hits shelves. It's not all that far away, really. But what can you expect from this new version of the RPG? In the first of what will be an ongoing series, Paizo gives us a look at what changes have been made, but also what has remained the same.
Dized is a great app where you can look at various rules for games with cross-referencing and help with setup and all that. Paizo is happy to announce that their Pathfinder Adventure Card Game is now available on there. Make sure you're learning the game correctly.
August is not all that far away. With it will come Gen Con and some new releases from Paizo. ... *looks at the number of releases* Ok, so "some" might be an understatement. There's going to be a deluge of releases. But then, it will be the release of the new Pathfinder edition. So there's that. Have yourself a look-see.
Keeping all your stats, abilities, feats, gear, and spells straight for your character is very important. You might forget that you have that one ability that would totally make that fight super-simple if you just remembered it. Having a good, clean, and organized character sheet will help with that. And Paizo is taking pre-orders for their Pathfinder 2nd edition character sheet pack now.
When heading into a new region, it's good to get the lay of the land and know what you're heading into. That holds especially true if where you're heading isn't the most lush of environments. That's the case with The Broken Lands. We get a preview of them coming in the Lost Omens World Guide from Paizo.
"Watch out for snakes!"
Who said that?
Say you really love playing Pathfinder, but you also love playing card games. What're you supposed to do? Well, you could play the Pathfinder: Adventure Card Game.

Along with it, there's also a new adventure path in the form of the Curse of the Crimson Throne.
Kingmaker is one of the adventure paths that quite a lot of people have enjoyed over the years. It's an epic tale that got many people into Pathfinder to begin with. However, many of the original books have been out of print for quite some time. Well, that's not a problem any longer. The book is up on Game On Tabletop, and it's been refreshed, updated, and expanded from the original version.
The Starfinder Beginner's Box is coming soon. There's a lot to put into a little package, and the folks at Paizo had to figure out what to leave in and what to cut out. In this article, they talk about some of those decisions and how they came about figuring out what could stay and what should go.
Many of you have played through the Kingmaker adventure path in Pathfinder. Many others have heard of it, but never gotten a chance to get the books, as several have been long out of print. Well, those that want to relive the glory or try it for the first time, Paizo is looking to bring a hardcover deluxe edition in honor of the 10th anniversary of the set. They'll be heading to Kickstarter next week in order to fund it.
WizKids and Paizo have had a good relationship so far, and it's only getting better. They've entered into an agreement to make Starfinder miniatures now. I, for one, look forward to more reasonably priced sci-fi minis of all types for my tabletop.

Rolling a 1 in a game is bad. You missed your attack, which could've been absolutely vital. But what if it was even worse than that?

This week is going by nicely. It's certainly been quick so far, at least. Hopefully the next two days go by quick as well and we can get to that sweet, sweet weekend.

So, while I make my domacile nicer, let's make your gaming tables look nicer.
