I’ve been having trouble keeping this blog up for a couple reasons, but mainly because for a stretch I’ve not been playing Pathfinder. I am also thinking about rebranding, and publishing some Rpg materials, but The Lost Muse is too close to another company’s trademarks. What I’m going to do is this: publish under anotherContinue reading “Blog relaunch?”
The Pathfinder Second Edition GM Screen is basically everything I want in a screen. It’s in landscape format, on a very durable stock, and has a set of very useful tables. Good Things: almost every table I want or need is here. Conditions. Basic Actions. What each skill does. Skill DC’s and how to adjustContinue reading “Pathfinder Second Edition GM Screen Review”
One of the things I don’t like about running combat encounters? Keeping track of all of the stat blocks. Somewhere along the way, I started creating tables that listed the stats for the creatures I was including in combat, along with some notes about what actions they would be taking in combat. And now, I’llContinue reading “Encounter Sheets”
It’s the end of the road for this series (next week I’m going to start working through an adaptation of The Tempest to Pathfinder Second Edition that you won’t want to miss) which means we are talking resolutions. The resolution in a narrative is the reestablishing of the status quo, and one big thing thatContinue reading “Campaign Plot Structure: Resolutions”
We’ve talked exposition, complication, crisis, and it has all been building to this: the Climax! From a narrative standpoint, this is the thing that the whole campaign is about, but Pathfinder Second Edition games can be tricky to plan climaxes for: just because I as the Games Master have some sense of what will happen,Continue reading “Campaign Climaxes”
This week, my favourite thing is this GM hold music. From its jokes about dwarves to the banality of the background track, it’s a great thing to throw in while taking a quick bathroom break. Check it out here.
The Order of the Stick is a long-running webcomic that follows the adventures of the titular order as they attempt to prevent the destruction of the universe at the hands of a power-mad lich and a divine mistake. I love it, and I bet you will too. Check it out at http://www.giantitp.com.
Last week, I recommended Pathfinder Wiki. This week, I’m recommending the Pathfinder 2 Easy Action Tree. This is simply the best organized online rule reference for Pathfinder Second Edition that I’ve seen anywhere. It appears to be comprehensive, and I just really like it a lot. I used the Pathfinder SRD a lot during firstContinue reading “Favourite Things”
Paizo posted an excerpt from the upcoming Gamemastery Guide Monster and NPC creation rules, and since I’m signed up to use the compatibility licence (you can tell because I’ve got the fine print and logo at the bottom) I got a heads up in my e-mail! (If you’d like a copy of your very own,Continue reading “NPC / Monster / Hazard Creation Rules Preview”
If this is the first bit on Ysoki you’re reading at the blog, check out the previous posts: Ysoki in Pathfinder Second Edition Ysoki Heritages One thing I want to define is the role of the Ysoki in my sequel campaign (sequel campaign? check out the Monday Musings series), and so far I’ve decided thatContinue reading “Ysoki Heritage Feats”
