Anybody who ever plays a Pathfinder game with me should expect airships to show up at some point. The newest TRAILseeker article, “Sky Pirates,” brings airship-focused adventure and campaign options to everybody. This article examines the logistics of airships in a campaign, the tools sky pirates utilize, and adventure hooks that can bring the PCs into battle against the lords of the air.
Wild magic has been one of my favorite things in fantasy gaming for years, but Pathfinder already has the traditional wild mage archetype covered with the primalist from Inner Sea Magic. But that doesn’t mean there isn’t more to do with wild magic! “Something Wild” features two new archetypes that manipulate the nature of magic itself to create new effects. By buying into the TRAILseeker Patreon, you can get this and more than 100 other articles!
I’m decent (not great) at avoiding profanity around my kids. But I tend to have loose lips with other topics that I never considered to be a potential issue. For example, after a bad week at work, I made an offhanded comment to some friends that I’m lucky I didn’t get fired.

TSR, the company that owned the game, soon saw that people wanted more than just dungeons and wilderness areas for their heroes to explore. They wanted a semblance of a living fantasy world filled with history, personalities, and adventure.

By the 1980s, though, D&D was realizing its media crossover potential. This led to a new wave of campaign settings that had a reach far beyond gaming tables.
I’m not an expert when it comes to the clinical side of depression. I’m just one of the millions who have to deal with it on a fairly regular basis. Because I focus so much on my kids’ wellbeing, I sometimes forget to take time out for myself. That’s when depression catches up.
Atari, once a big name in home video games, is coming out with a new console for the first time in decades. I have no reason to believe that the crowdfunded Ataribox will fail except for one fact: the Atari brand name seems to be cursed, and it has been that way since the 1980s.
