Paizo's Pathfinder Society Does Gen Con Right!

Paizo’s Pathfinder Society Does Gen Con Right!

Paizo’s Pathfinder Society rarely merits mention on Livingdice because I do not participate in the campaign. Nothing against it, in fact I like the Pathfinder system, but I only have a finite amount of gaming time. Yesterday Haaldaar forwarded me an email from Paizo regarding their Gen Con plans that impressed me enough to write […]

Paizo's Pathfinder Burnt Offerings as a Stage Play

Paizo’s Pathfinder Burnt Offerings as a Stage Play

Welcome to Portland, Oregon. The land of wet winters and amazing eating establishments. But unbeknownst to many, a land populated with many nerds and geeks. So many, that we infiltrate places that none suspect. Portland is a place where once I was sitting at a sushi bar with a buddy of mine talking about his […]

Trask's Thoughts on the Paizo Pathfinder Society Organized Play Campaign

I spent two hours last night in the Pathfinder chat session and carefully read all of the responses offered by the campaign staff to publicly-submitted questions. The questions ranged from character tracking to running modules in a  game store. There were no surprises in any of the answers.   Regardless of the new name, it is […]

Paizo Pathfinder Society Chat Report

The first change is simplified skill point acquisition.  For example, a paladin now receives two skill points, plus his intelligence […]

Paizo Pathfinder Alpha 2 Races and Classes Overview

Pathfinder released its “Alpha 2” version of “Pathfinder, ” so I thought I would post some of the main differences between OGL 3.5 and the new “Pathfinder” rules. This is not an in depth review or analysis of the rules, just a quick summary of the key differences that caught my eye. It is not […]

Paizo Releases Pathfinder Alpha Release 2

I am big booster of open-source software ie. Linux. The Paizo Pathfinder project is open-source gaming and a fascinating experiment.  For the uninitiated, Paizo is creating a game system based on the 3.5 SRD, but “modified” by the fans.  They plan on publishing a hardback book next summer, but are releasing revisions as free PDF downloads now. […]

Paizo Pathfinder charts a new course–Players Fix the 3.5 Rules

Here is the link: Pathfinder Announcement I am excited about this announcement for a couple of reasons. Primarily, I am thrilled that Paizo is beta-testing the rules in the real world for a year! If there is an issue with the underlying system, either in execution or explanation, then a year of real-world testing is […]
