    PathfinderWiki shoutout

    October 15, 2010 by Yoda8myhead

    Fans of gaming-themed webcomic are probably no stranger to Mortellan's wonderful World of Greyhawk. And Mortellan's apparently no stranger to Golariopedia either! Check out the shoutout in his most recent Greyhawk/Golarion crossover (in which the deities of Greyhawk play a Golarion gods in their home campaign): link!

    Yes, Wee-Jas would indeed be proud.

    As you have probably noticed, Pathfinder Wiki looks quite a bit different from the last time you logged on here. This is because Wikia, who hosts our site, has decided to "upgrade" the look and functionality of all of its wikis across the board. This means that you may see some strange formatting issues for the next few weeks as we hammer things out. Please excuse the mess and continue enjoying access to the largest collection of Pathfinder Campaign Setting lore in the universe!

    Looking for something simple to write about? The Spell Index needs your help!

    As some of you may know, the Monster index is one of the most popular pages on this site. I thought it might be equally useful to create a Spell index, listing all the spells unique to the Pathfinder Campaign Setting. I am almost finished creating separate tables for each of the spellcasting classes, but I need your help.

    If you click on the links below (which are part of my "Sandbox", as I don't want the general public to access them in their current state), you'll notice that most of them are populated by red links; that doesn't look good. I would greatly appreciate any help turning these red links blue. All that is required is to use the

    I wanted to take the opportunity to deliver the thanks I would have had we won an award tonight. While the recognition of being nominated is more than we could have ever asked for, not winning doesn't change the recognition that is deserved by everyone who has made the Wiki's success possible.

    First, thanks to Paizo for creating a system that has inspired so many of us to a level that we have dedicated our free time to making this resource and for being so open with their content for fan-generated, non-commercial projects such as this.

    I'd also like to thank fellow Chroniclers, Admins, and members of the greater Paizo community. This isn't just recognition of the most active users, but of everyone who has or will contribute to the site in th…

    First and foremost, thanks to all Chroniclers for all your hard work. Golariopedia wouldn't be a shadow of the resource it is now without the contributions of dozens of active editors. Give yourselves a huge mug of Cayden's best brew and have a friend pat you on the back.

    Just like the title says, you can now get a sample chapter of Paizo's forthcoming debut Pathfinder Tales novel, Prince of Wolves by Dave Gross, on their daily blog! (here) I'm not reading it, for fear of spoiling some of the experience of delving into the pages of the first official Pathfinder novel in August, but I am incredibly excited by the simple title of the chapter, "Dance of the Sczarni." Varian Jeggare, Radovan, sczarni? All before chapter three? Sign me up!

    And here I thought the announcement and release of the Pathfinder Tales web fiction was more Pathfinder fiction goodness than I could reasonably handle in one week! Perhaps I should say, "I'm so excited about the forthcoming Serpent's Skull adventure path. I simply couldn't handl…

    After much anticipation, Paizo today revealed the final cover art for the Advanced Player's Guide by fan-favorite artist Wayne Reynolds. Just like the cover of this year's Free RPG Day product, Master of the Fallen Fortress, provided the first glimpse at the final look of the iconic oracle and cavalier, this image exhibits the first glimpse of two more iconics—the alchemist and witch. We'll be sure to announce the introduction of each of the iconics when their names and backstories are revealed, but until then, check out the ad in the back of The Darkest Vengeance, which displays all the final artwork for the "class of 2010".

    Thank you

    April 12, 2010 by Aeakett

    I just wanted to thank everyone for their efforts in making the Anniversary Editing Contest a success. The contest was the brainchild of Brandingopportunity and Yoda8myhead (my understanding is that they conspired about it one day over coffee). Cpt kirstov quickly volunteered a very generous prize of a set of miniatures to recreate the scene on the front of the Core Rulebook. Yoda8myhead also managed to wrangle a trio of gift certificates from the good folks at Paizo. A group of us went back and forth on the format, judging criteria and timing for the contest, going so far as to consult with Wikia staff about their experiences with contests.

    Finally the day came, and the edits began to trickle in. As the month wore on contributions began to…

    Milestones

    March 14, 2010 by Yoda8myhead

    This week has been awesome here on PathfinderWiki!

    Monday was the project's 2nd anniversary, and we've got lots of great news to celebrate. First, our month-long Anniversary edit giveaway began at the start of the week and will run through the 8th of April. For every ten edits registered users make to the wiki, they receive one chance to win one of several great prizes including a set of custom-painted Pathfinder minis from Reaper and up to $50 in paizo.com credit! Edits can be as simple as adding a category or fixing typos and grammatical errors, or as complex as organizing long articles on detailed subjects throughout the Pathfinder Chronicles campaign setting; it's up to you how much you can or want to do and all of it is appreciated.

    Pathfinder planar expert Todd Stewart is currently featured in a weekly series of articles using some cut material from an upcoming project he worked on, which is being published for free on Kobold Quarterly's website. In the first two installments, he has detailed the ecology of Golarion's peacock spawn, strange lawful outsiders with ties to the mysterious Peacock Spirit. My understanding is that this material is as canon as any other KQ Pathfinder Chronicles licensed material, so I wanted to point it out to the community. Check it out part 1 and part 2 now, and look for the addition of the next three parts in the coming weeks.

    As promised, Paizo today announced its upcoming products from September 2010 through the end of the year. The most notable among these new books are a revised and expanded version of 2008's Campaign Setting and a line of novels set in Golarion helmed by two of the biggest names in game fiction.

    The Pathfinder Fiction line will launch in September with Elaine Cunningham's Winter Witch, set in the frigid and treacherous nation of Irrisen. The following month, Dave Gross will follow up his Hell's Pawns novella with the second novel in the the line, Prince of Wolves. In his announcement post on the Paizo messageboards, Technical Director Vic Wertz also announced plans for a later novel by fan-favorite Paul S. Kemp.

    A special surprise lurks in the pages of The Twice-Damned Prince, which began shipping to Pathfinder Adventure Path subscribers today. While anticipation has been high for quite some time regarding the announcement of the impending Pathfinder Fiction line, few would have suspected that the big reveal would come in a sidebar in the pages of Dave Gross's serialized novella Hell's Pawns.

    At the moment, all we know is that one of the first books in the novels line will be Gross's sequel to Hell's Pawns entitled Prince of Wolves, in which Radovan leaves Egorian behind and heads into the mist-shrouded land of Ustalav. The book hasn't been formally announced, so we don't have a cover image, page count, or release date to report, but rest assured that w…

    Paizo CEO Lisa Stevens let slip today in paizo.com's daily store blog that the company has hired a new Assistant Editor:

    "Every so often, our adventures bring in elements from beyond the world of Golarion—things that one might describe as alien. Or spacey. Or sci-fi. Well, in this month's Pathfinder Society Scenarios, Paizo's newest editorial staffer—and RPG Superstar finalist—Rob McCreary and Pathfinder Society coordinator Josh Frost each riffed on stories that boldly go where no scenario has gone before!"

    Rob has moved to the Seattle area from Prague, Czech Republic and will begin work on Monday, November 2. Please stop by the Paizo messageboards and wish him congratulations and the best of luck!

    In the last few months, we've seen a flurry of activity, with additions made to the project as part of the CSII and by dedicated chroniclers working on their own. Every day the article counter climbed a little bit higher, and in the last week, I knew we were going to top two thousand articles very soon. That threshold was crossed this afternoon by none other than our newest obsessive, Goblin Witchlord, who created Merchants' Quarter as he went through all the city districts of Absalom. I know he didn't add the article just to push us over the edge, but thanks GW! And congratulations to all chroniclers for doing your parts in getting to this point. No one person is responsible for the great resource we have going here.

    Announced today by Wolfgang Baur, Open Design will soon begin design and development of the first patronage project set in the Pathfinder Chronicles campaign setting. The adventure, From Shore to Sea, will be written by Brandon Hodge with input, playtesting, and brainstorming from the project's patrons. It will be set in a Chelish seaside town and explore a series of strange Azlanti ruins off the coast. After writing is complete, Paizo will develop, illustrate and release the adventure as part of their Pathfinder Modules line in 2010. Open Design will be further supplementing the adventure with a setting neutral book called Sunken Empires which will provide 64 pages of adventure hooks and new rules (all PFRPG compatible) for adventures s…

    Behold! Golariopedia has undergone a facelift and the Main Page now has a lot more to offer than before. I have been soliciting feedback from folks about the wiki and a lot of them expressed confusion of how often it was being edited and felt that it was difficult to navigate from the Main Page. So we've revamped it quite a bit and put some new shiny on it. New features include:

    • Automatically updating weekly featured article and featured image
    • Live blog roll of news both in the world of Pathfinder and on the wiki
    • Paizo development blog feed (working with Paizo to make it look a little nicer, but that might have to wait til after GenCon)

    On Friday, July 31, Paizo Publishing released the updated Guide to Pathfinder Society Organized Play (v2.0) which outlines all the official rules for Season One, which begins on August 13 at GenCon. With the release of the highly anticipated Pathfinder Roleplaying Game just weeks away, the updated Guide outlines how existing characters will be converted to the new rules set. Additionally, for the first time in PFS play, non-core material has been opened for play, including additional feats, spells, prestige classes, and equipment, both magic and mundane. Furthermore, the playtest season which comes to a close on the eve of GenCon illuminated a number of areas for improvement, resulting in a revamped prestige system, GM rewards, and expan…

With preorders more than five times greater than for any previous product in Paizo's seven-year history, orders for the Core Rulebook continue to mount even as the company speeds to produce another print run.

    ... 'cause I think we eats more than spinach.



    I have to applaud those that have stuck with this project through times of growth and stagnant periods alike; Pathfinder Wiki was begun in the hopes of building a comprehensive database of Pathfinder lore, and things have come a long way since our start. I'm sure I'm not alone when I say what keeps me coming back isn't just a love of the setting, but the hope that others will make use of and benefit from our work here.


    Building such a project can often be an unforgiving task, and sometimes it's easy to wonder if anyone other than our fellow chroniclers will ever even see what we accomplish here. Several of us have been hoping that with the launch of the Pathfinder RPG drawing ever closer our littl…

    After quite a bit of talk on the subject here, I have created a project page for the systematic inclusion of information from the Pathfinder Chronicles Campaign Setting. It looks like a daunting list, but if we as a community can divide the labor and work hard on our individual commitments before getting distracted, making articles (even stubs) on all topics covered, we can include all the information from the CS into the wiki with the added benefit of information speciation and hyperlinking. This is the foundation we need to become the largest source of Pathfinder information bar none. So let's get working, and see how well we can come together as a community!
