Back when I was creating Shadowsfall, I wanted it to feel both familiar yet different. One way I wanted to accomplish this was by making higher and lower level versions of existing monsters. By allowing players to encounter a monster that is normally not seen until higher levels, it gives the feeling that this monster is more common, that this type of danger is more prevalent then say your average goblin. Similarly,… Read More

As has been pointed out, PayPal has been adding on a Shipping and Handling charge upon check out when purchasing PDFs. This is not something we added and as far as I can tell has only recently started. I have not been able to figure out why PayPal has been doing this so I changed credit card providers. We switched to Stripe until we can sort this out. If you have been… Read More

When it comes to outsiders, proteans are an interesting addition. In a game that is frequently a game of good and evil, proteans are neither. Infact, they are defined as chaos incarnate. That is their hook. Proteans are to destroy and remove all semblance of order to reality. When I first wrote the bladecypher, there were only few proteans created. So I wanted a powerful force for nothingness for the players to… Read More

It’s that time of year again when we get to find out what is coming from Paizo for the upcoming year for the Pathfinder Roleplaying Game and me being in the other end if the country means I don’t get to go as often as I’d like. So you get the benefit of having our Not Going To PaizoCon Sale again this year. This year it is better than ever. We are… Read More

This past week, my wife and I took a trip to St. Louis, Missouri for her day job; I came along for the ride. We had a great time out there. St Louis is a very nice city. Pictures do not do the Arch justice. The zoo recently beat out San Diego as the best in the country. We loved the fact that new construction went out of their way to fit… Read More

Looking for a way to finish off your Pathfinder campaign? Check out this high level Pathfinder adventure coming out next month.

I just thought I would take a break from my regular posting of expanding the number of creatures you can summon with the conjure spells in your Fifth Edition game and post a monster I made just for fun. How to make NPCs for 5e is a quesiton I don’t have a good answer for since examples in the MM do not coorelate to levels in the PHB and their stats are… Read More

Conan is the classic barbarian. Most artwork for this class depicts someone from a tribal background in some type of leather clothing covering only the bare essentials to be considered “decent,” wielding a sizable weapon. While there is nothing wrong with that image of a barbarian, it is only one interpretation of a barbarian. The problem with it came in when some versions of the game mechanically reinforced it. As late as… Read More

In our quest to increase the number of creatures you can bring to the table with the conjure spells, the most obvious place to expand is the number and type of basic elementals in existence. My interests in the shadow lands means a shadow elemental should be in the game. Naturally that also means there’s a light elemental somewhere but we’ll save that for another day. Today I just hope you enjoy… Read More

When it comes to monsters, there are some D&D classics that everyone just loves. Owlbears spring instantly to mind. Gelatinous cubes is another one. Bugbears, drow, multicolored dragons, and a whole host of others make the game instantly recognizable. Then there are the ones that Wizards owns and doesn’t let anyone out side of some license touch. Things like a panther with tentacles on it’s back or a human sized race if… Read More
