Paizo Previews Pathfinder Battles: Ruins of Lastwall set

While I wouldn't say that I'm "afraid" of bugs, I wouldn't say that I'm thrilled with them, either. I won't go running and screaming from a roach, for example, but I don't exactly want to run over and pick it up. I'd much rather just stomp it and throw it out. Well, the bugs in fantasy games are the ones capable of stomping on you. In this Pathfinder Battles: Ruins of Lastwall preview, Paizo shows off some of the insect inclusions in the set.

Paizo Posts New Pathfinder Battles: Legendary Adventures Preview

Longtime readers know my love for giant minis. I mean, a figure that's 32mm to eyeline can be cool and all, but give me the really big figures (in fact, just yesterday, I was able to score a Colossal Red Dragon that WotC made). In the upcoming Pathfinder Battles: Legendary Adventures set, Paizo will be giving you some more big figures. In this preview, we get a look what else will be coming in the set.

It's all about new options, over 300 pages worth.

Paizo Posts Pathfinder Battles: Champions of Balance Preview

I'm a big fan of having the right mini out on the table when fighting in an RPG. That can sometimes be tough, if you don't quite have the mini you need, or maybe too many minis of the same exact type and you can't tell them apart. Thankfully, WizKids and Paizo are coming out with a new Pathfinder Battles set, the Ruins of Lastwall, that will help with that. Check out the new preview Paizo posted.

Magignosis Character Classes Up On Kickstarter

Whenever a character levels up in an RPG, it should be something cool. You get better at whatever you've been doing this whole time. But, sometimes, you have a class that doesn't really get anything when they gain a level. It can be sort of a "well, that was pointless" moment. The four classes that are part of the Magignosis Kickstarter give you something every time you level.

Mythic Mania 2 For Pathfinder Up On Kickstarter

Mythic Mania 2 (not called "Myth Harder," much to my dismay) is a new pair of expansion books for Pathfinder that brings even more mythic material to your games.

Pathfinder Bestiary Now Available On Roll20

Tabletop games bring people together. But when those people are spread all over the world, it can be difficult to end up in the same room to game.

They've expanded their content for Pathfinder with the Bestiary release. Need to throw more monsters at your party? Now you can.

Monday Terrain Corner

I don't know who decided that it'd be a good idea to stop the weekend and have another Monday, but here we are. It's not that I hate what I do. Far from it.

And with that gaming, we need to make sure the gaming tables look good.

Paizo Previews Half-Elves and Half-Orcs in Pathfinder 2.0

I am all for race-mingling. Nothing inherently wrong with that at all. And that includes into your fantasy settings. That's where you can get Half-Elves and Half-Orcs.

Paizo Previews Druids in Pathfinder 2.0

The tree-hugging hippies of the fantasy world, Druids are in complete contact with nature. They can feel the changes of the seasons, the cycles of life and death, and even communicate with the woodland creatures and the woods themselves. But how will they change from the way they operate in Pathfinder to Pathfinder 2.0? That's what we get to see in this preview.
