Out Now: Downtime Events

Downtime Events

The new edition of Pathfinder includes a downtime mode where PCs can earn income, craft materials, and establish their place in a community. Normally handled by a few die rolls, downtime mode receives more detail with “Downtime Events,” a new article from the TRAILseeker Patreon. This article introduces new complications to downtime activities that mean more risk but the potential for greater rewards. “Downtime Events” features at least one complication per downtime activity listed in the Pathfinder Core Rulebook.

As always, paying $1 per article on the TRAILseeker Patreon opens up not only these articles, but many more!

Out Now: Favorable Terrain and The Knights of Forced Redemption

Favorable TerrainThe TRAILseeker Patreon continues to offer more options and inspiration for the Pathfinder RPG! The last two weeks have seen the addition of my two latest articles.

“Favorable Terrain” provides more options for your combat-oriented PCs that take advantage of the environment. Each feat provides a significant bonus that makes it easier to deal with environmental factors as well as a smaller bonus that you can use no matter where you are.

“The Knights of Forced Redemption” presents a new organization out to change the outlook of evildoers everywhere…whether they like it or not. Using an array of mind-affecting magic that alters behavior, the order seeks to turn enemies into ally through any means necessary. PCs may find their methods unpalatable and fight against them, or they may decide to join the order with the Redeemer, a new inquisitor archetype.

As with all TRAILseeker offerings, you can unlock these articles and almost 200 more for only $1!

The Pathfinder Playtest: Changes to Come

Pathfinder Playtest

We’re less than five months away from the release of Pathfinder 2ndedition. Folks who participated in the playtest saw a notably changed system, and those who kept up on the regular updates saw the game change even more due to player feedback. After all that, what will the final version look like?

Only the designers know for sure, although fans can expect previews as the hype for the new edition builds. But interviews during and after the playtest, not to mention the update documents themselves, already provide some hints as to what’s coming. Here’s a breakdown of the changes we can definitely expect from 2nd edition.

Out Now: Social Combat

Social Combat

What happens when you want to duel with words instead of swords in the Pathfinder RPG? “Social Combat” provides a simple system to flesh out social encounters, making it so a single die roll doesn’t determine the outcome of a day at court, an interrogation, or another major encounter that uses charisma instead of brawn.

You can get this article and more than 180 more for only $1 if you join the TRAILseeker Patreon!
