    Name of that Monster

    March 23, 2016 by Nomad27

    Does anyone remember the name of a monster in pathfinder. It belonged in one of the outside planes. I glanced at it briefly through the rulebooks. It was humaniod, glowing and a head that levitates over its shoulder. It was a lawfullly or neutrally good creature.

    March 16, 2015 by Skelo10

    Hello everybody on this Gigantic wikia, I am soon going to start a Pathfinder group with a few of my friends, I will be D.M.ing, but there are 2 major problems. I do not know of any good Campaigns, and 2, I don't really know where to start. none of my friends have plated before, nor have I, and I don't know too well on how the gameplay works. Any help? Thanks!

    KorPeMorCor is a world based around a citystate that I built back in 2006. It was from a game my friend Spencer ran, where we found an old pyramid that had the Sword of Kas in it. (Kas was Vecna's general whom took his eye and hand in a battle that left Kas on the run from the dark lord.)  We built a city around the pyramid and named it after our gods. KorPeMorCor flourished in Spencer's game and brought in an age of prosperity. That was then, the good 'ol days of 3.5, before the dark ages. (4E!!!!)

    I kept all my paperwork on the write up's of KorPeMorCor, since it was the first city I ever designed. It was my baby and I feel in love. KorPe was more than just a side project for me, it was a world I started creating, and I didn't even realiz…

    Hello everyone!

    The Gmoat here, writing finally about this amazing system I have been running my world in for the past 5 months. It's amazing how fast time has flew as my party travels through my mix world; KorPeMorCor. (Yes, my world is named after the old Gods in 3.5...can you name them?) So, for months we have been playing this system and my complaints are as follows: no mindflayers. Okay, that's it! Isn't it amazing to have a fantasy rules system that is just about perfect. Sure, I tweek some things as any good GM should do, but for the most part, it's amazing. 

    I loved 3.5. It was the system that caught me, hook, line, sinker. But when the powers that be at Wizards decided to take the gimmick (Tome of Battle: The Book of Nine Swords) an…

    As anyone who has ever worked in the field of creative fiction (of any sort... books, films, television, and even roleplaying games) can tell you, it is almost impossible to come up with a completely and totally original idea. This isn't necessarily a bad thing. As the folks at that time-sink of a wiki TV Tropes will tell you, old ideas are useful because they are recognizable. You don't have to explain every step of the Hero's Journey because people have seen it so many times that they feel comfortable with it.

    The reason I bring this up is because I'm relatively new to Pathfinder, and especially new to Golarion. I have no intention of ever using the setting, as I have a well-rounded, deep, and exciting homebrew gameworld of my own tha…

    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!

    Food for thought: I've been noticing a lot of red links that should be active, but aren't because the text in the link is misspelled. Just today, I fixed links for the "Zevgavizeb" and "Irnakurse" pages. I know that some of the spellings in the Pathfinder universe are a little crazy (especially when dealing with demon lords), but it you're even the least bit unsure of spelling, TRIPLE-CHECK IT.

    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!

    I've been told that the only artwork that falls directly under the Paizo Community Use Policy is the stuff featured on the Paizo blog. I'm alright with that--I like the guys at Paizo a lot, and I trust their judgment, along with the judgment of the Pathfinder Wiki administrators. I was just wondering, for anyone who bothers to read this blog, how easy or difficult it would be to get amateur artists to do illustrations for the wiki. I know Hugo Solis did all the holy symbols for the PF core deities, and I contributed some of my Wayfinder artwork to a couple of pages. Also, we need people looking around Wikimedia for relevant images.


    If you're reading this: thoughts?

    I recently starting participating in Pathfinder Society (PFS) organized play, via online tables organized though the Pathfinder Society online collective. For those unfamiliar with the collective, it is a Google Group designed specifically to facilitate and organize online Society play. It has allowed us to share character information and chronicles with one another as needed, allowing us to participate officially in the PFS.

    Yesterday, however, Google made an announcement that page and file functionality will soon be cut from Google Groups. It poses a unique difficulty for those of us using the site to play electronically, as the page and file features are the primary method of communicating character information. As a result, we have begu…

    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

    Hi folks,

    I've been playing around with a great little freeware program called Jing by TechSmith, that allows you to make short screencapture videos which you can narrate yourself. My first thought is that this would allow me to make short instructional videos about how to edit our wiki. The videos themselves I would upload to Youtube, so we wouldn't take up any more bandwidth here. Each would be pretty short (under 2 mins), but I guess could be lengthened if I am talking about larger topics. Here are some preliminary ideas for videos:

    • How to create an article about a person.
    • How to create an article about a city.
    • How to create an article about an organization.
    • Interesting options in your Preferences menu.
    • How to create a forum post

    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…

    Greetings True Believers,

    As some of you (well, maybe only Yoda) may know, I am moving to the West Coast, specifically to the town of Portland, OR. Today is my last day in NYC (sniff) and it will be a busy one. I just wanted to say a quick farewell to all of you, as I most-likely won't be logging in for the next few weeks. I don't have a laptop and the movers are transporting my desktop, so there's a good chance I won't be able to contribute substantially wiki-wise until at least the middle of August. By then the ENnies will be decided, so good luck to the wiki and to all of you! Don't forget to vote! See you soon from the Left Coast.

    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.

    So now everyone's asking, "how can we make sure we win?"

    Well, we can keep improving the site every day. Make edits, create articles, and participate in ongoing discussions in the forum and blogs. Spread the word about the site on your personal blogs, websites, messageboards, twitter, facebook, myspace, friendster, etc. Get more people using it, and we get more people editing it.

    I've been given the ok by the esteemed Erik Mona to discuss publicly my upcoming stint as temporary employee of Paizo Publishing. I was asked to extend my trip to Seattle, where I was already planning on going to attend PaizoCon, to spend a week in the office adding locations to the giant poster map of the Inner Sea region that will appear in the Inner Sea Poster Map Folio later this year. The plan is to go through every Pathfinder product and make sure that every named location (even ones without descriptions) are included in the map with a tag. And that's a ton of work!

    I missed out on the first year or so of the Pathfinder Adventure Path because it began during a board and video game phase. Then a few local friends showed me copies of Rise of the Runelords and Curse of the Crimson Throne. The gorgeous art and design struck me at once, but then I skimmed the adventure summaries, and I was hooked. I picked up the Campaign Setting and put in a standing order for the Adventure Path at my friendly local game store.


    By the time James Sutter asked me to pitch story ideas for the Council of Thieves Adventure Path, I had a broad but fairly shallow knowledge of Golarion. To aid my studies, the Paizonians gave me access to .pdf versions of all their published material. The sheer volume of information threatened to sm…

    Upcoming features

    May 24, 2010 by Yoda8myhead

    I wanted to draw the attention of new and experienced Chroniclers to some new features wikia has added to the site. I don't see us utilizing all of them, or even most of them, but some my have some potential for growing the community and making it easier to edit.

    Ad-free wikis: I already mentioned this one in a forum post, but thought I'd bring it up here, too. Funding the removal of ads from the page is more than I can handle, and I wouldn't expect a general member of the site to do so either, so we should use the forum to brainstorm ways of paying for that. I'd love to see the project go ad-free if we can manage it.

    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".

    Since my "King of Absalom" idea hasn't gone very far (see previous blog post), I have another idea: tag teaming.

    I've found that having someone else working on the same topic really helps motivate me. Topics can sometimes be confusing, or there can be contradictions in the timeline, and having someone else to bounce ideas and problems off of really can help. Edits are also made easier, as you know that the other person knows a particular topic just as well.

    So would anyone like to tag team? I'd let you pick the topic. I'm happy to work on anything, as I have pretty much everything Paizo has published. Favorite topics of mine include: the Darklands, the Great Beyond, and monsters.

    Here's an idea that I've been playing with a bit. It first came to me when I realized a while back that User:Cheddar bearer was making a lot of updates for the city of Magnimar.

    My idea is similar to the "Adopt a Highway" program that the USDOT seems to have had some success with. It also bears some similarities to the online phenomenon of foursquare (http://foursquare.com), in which frequent visitors to actual real world locations are declared the "mayor".

    What if the more active editors on the wiki adopt, or become the WikiRulers of a particular city or location? It wouldn't have to mean much, other than that user is interested in making additions and edits with things having to do with that city or place. He or she could also be the p…

    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.

    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.

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.

    Released last week, the second volume of the Pathfinder fanzine known as Wayfinder is absolutely stunning. While none of the content within it is considered canon for the purposes of this project, it's nevertheless a fun and exciting resource for any Pathfinder player or GM. Also, it's free! My favorite part of volume #2 is Zonzon (pg 19), the Zon-Kuthon dolls traditionally used to carry Shelyn's love and blessings to her twisted and evil brother.

    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.

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.

    Ways to Use a Wiki

    February 5, 2010 by Yoda8myhead

    As I've mentioned a few places, last month I had a wonderful conversation with Brandingopportunity over coffee, and one of the topics we discussed were how people use wikis. We determined that there are two methods of utilizing mediawiki tools, and I thought I'd address both of these and how we can work to cover both of these here on PathfinderWiki.


    One of the most common uses of Wikipedia, for example, is for random trivia. How many times have you been talking about some obscure song, television character, or ancient philosopher and wanted to look up a specific piece of information about them? In most cases, I'd guess you did a simple google search or even a search from within Wikipedia and found that random fact directly.

Set at 100%, we know that it will always be the largest size possible. This is also done in Wikipedia.

    have seen a few different ways to write articles being portrayed by various chroniclers.

    1. Take the book, and enter the test in that one book for all possible articles. This allows for someone to write many articles in a sort amount of time. Some of these articles, though, may not have information from all of the available resources, if others are available. On the other hand, this method better allows the chronicler to edit previously made articles with the information held in the book in their hands (or on their screens).

    2. Take a list of articles that you would like to write about, and use the search function of Adobe Reader (Edit > Search) to find all of the books that have data on the article at hand. This means that articles may have…

    All of my contributions to this wiki occupy the "editing" sphere. I don't generate content, I read through existing content and tweak it. I'm okay with this.

    A problem, however, has manifested. Being what you call a "nub," I lack access to sources (like the Bestiary, the Rulebook, &c). This explains my non-contributory activities; I don't have official materials and mistrust anything I find on the tubes. Without sources, however, I don't always know what information on the pages I edit comes from which sources. So, sometimes, I mess up source citations in the editing process.

    References remain on the pages I edit; I attach citations to the sentences of mine that look the most like the sentences they originally supported. And a reader still k…

All that is really required in order to be a good member of the Pathfinder Wiki community is a willingness to put some regular time into this ever-growing site, pay attention to the work of others and work in concert with them, and police oneself in terms of grammar, punctuation, and all the other small details.

    Having said that, I have come across something which I thought I wanted to share. It revolves around the formatting of citations; I know, it's a spellbinding topic. In the past, I have often used the "ref name=" format (e.g. ) that is moved before the reference that it refers to will not work, a…

    Over the weekend, I added two new Utility templates to the project, taken from other wikimedia sites. As with any utility template, these should make it easier for chroniclers to mark articles that need work and place the articles in categories so that other editors can find them.


    The first new template is . When placed in an article, it looks like this:



    It has been suggested that this article or section be merged with . ([[ talk:|Discuss]])

    This alerts editors to the fact that some or all of the page's content might be a better fit on another existing article. It also adds the page to Category:Articles to be merged.


    The template should be placed at the top of articles which are out of date. This includes any lists which do not incorporate all…

    Hello fellow Chroniclers!

    We hit another major milestone this weekend, as the wiki's article count passed 2,500! Thanks to everyone who's been helping out with that, whether by making typo and grammar fixes or working on the Campaign Setting Inclusion Initiative. We're now listed among Wikia's Big wikis hub and I've requested the wiki be featured in one of the Wikia Spotlight ads that pepper the margins of the site.

    I wanted to take the opportunity to discuss red links and hyperlinking within the project.

    Obviously, red links are going to happen. They're a sign of a growing wiki. It means we're making articles and planting the seeds for new content.

    But they're also ugly and can signal a weak or undeveloped project if there are too many of t…

    Greets from Abroad!

    Though I'm not sure if the term "abroad" can accurately be applied to another Wikia project...

    In any case, I've been itching to stop by and see how things are going over here; I'm glad to see the edits keep rolling in. Now that the Bestiary's been released in pdf format, and for a rather affordable $9.99 at that (perfect for those of us still without work), I'm getting ready to start writing my first Pathfinder adventure. I'm leaning toward setting things in Andoran, most likely in the region of Falcon's Hollow and as a follow-up to the events detailed in the modules centered in the region; are there any more in the works that we've been made aware of? The tricky thing will be writing something that will mesh with what's already been flesh…
