The Genius Guide to the Armiger [Review]

I love OtherWorld Creations , and I love their Genius Guides .  Their Pathfinder creations are worth every penny for the extra content they provide.  My favorite so far is the Genius Guide to the Shadow Assassin , but today I’d like to talk about the Genius Guide to the Armiger . The armiger is an interesting concept.  While I was not sold on it…

Fool’s Gold – cursed coins for miserly players [PFRPG]

Fool’s gold is just that, gold that makes you foolish. These cursed coins were created by the First Bank of WareHave as a deterrent to thieves and cutthroats who would frequently target the bank and its shipments of gold. Often a large coin worth at least 10 gold pieces in weight alone, Fool’s Gold has a cumulative effect. The more you take, the more…

The Plaid Axe of the Northern Dwarf is all aboot taking down trees, vegetation and whoever may be standing near by.  Forged in a vast underground empires by vast, underground Dwarves, the Plaid Axe of the Northern Dwarves was a last ditch solution to the growing problem of how to cut down and use things that weren’t made …

Paizo’s Plot Twist Deck

Just got the Plot Twist Deck today and it’s pretty darned sweet. If you’ve stopped by here enough you’ll know that I’m one of those story over rules guys which makes this right up my alley. Here’s what you get. Fifty-one cards with nifty bits of inspirational artwork. Each card has a title and four

Meet Senkra Changeling Rogue

Our Spelljammer game is getting ready to get started so I figured I’d take the time to throw up my character for fun. I still need to knock out a quick background. It’s all there in my head just need to write it out. But here you go. Senkra, Changeling, Rogue 1 Alignment: CG Init:

Pulled an all nighter

Wow, haven’t done that in a long time. We wrapped up the Council of Thieves campaign last night and it pretty much took all night. Things got a little bogged down and one of the players was running late due to family commitments. But we survived barely. Things got out of hand a couple times

Council of Thieves Fin. Hello Spelljammer

As you are reading this we should be beginning the last session of our Council of Thieves campaign thanks to the miracle of technology and scheduling posts to the future. This has been a fun ride. A member of our group who hadn’t DM’d for us before ran the entire Adventure Path. He did a

Preparing for Pathfinder: Geography [Game]

Tonight I’ll be running our third session of Pathfinder.  The last two have been very well received, and my players have continued to exceed my expectations.  Rather than slaughter the goblins they discovered squatting in an abandoned farmhouse they fed the starving family and managed to glean some useful intelligence.  Thus far they have not entered into combat, but …

First Pathfinder Session Summary

It’s become a tradition that every summer I run (or play in) a D&D game of some sort.  This year I gathered a group of players who are almost entirely inexperienced in the ways of roleplaying games, save one who played with me the last two summers, and persuaded them to try out Pathfinder.  We had our first session on Thursday and…wow. …

Having a Rod of Wonder means never having to say you’re sorry.

OK, maybe it does but it certainly is one of the funnest magic items out there. Let me tell you a little about our Friday Pathfinder game. We’re running two adventure paths on alternating weeks but the one that’s important for this story is Council of Thieves. We have a nice little party; a half

Pathfinder Session One Tonight

Tonight, we play the very first Pathfinder session of our summer. I've neither GMed nor played the game at this point, so it'll be an adventure for all of us, to be sure. I don't want to reveal too much here, just in case one of my players happens to read this pre-game, but if you want an idea what the…

Make Mine D&D 7.5

I was sitting here at my desk thinking about 3.5/Pathfinder and Fourth Edition and the whole future of the D&D product line. I still have those dark memories of the bitter Edition Wars. And from time to time there are still a few flare ups here and there but pretty much most folks have

“The Church has moved on.”

No, I’m not referring to Pope Benedict XVI and the Catholic Church.  Rather, I’m referring to a recent episode of Doctor Who (“ The Time of Angels “) in which the Doctor and Amy Pond encounter River Song and Father Octavian.  River Song should be familiar to those who watched Series 4, but Father Octavian is a new face.  The Church, of course, is radically different …
