The 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!

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.

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.

Born and raised on the crashing waves of stormy seas or in the midst of mountain tempests, the creatures known as storm-kin represent a new race for your Pathfinder PCs!

While many half-orcs manage to blend in with human society, others wish they could find a place where their orcish heritage didn’t come with certain preconceived notions. They dream of a place where people don’t automatically assume that they exist as dumb muscle, or where people don’t view them with suspicion because of stories told about their ancestors’ brutality. Other half-orcs dream differently, imagining a society where they can indulge that brutality in a wild hunt that draws no judgment or paranoia from the populace when they return dripping with the blood of a fresh kill. Regardless of what a
specific half-orc wants, they can find a place of their own in the hidden village called Pinespear.
“Pinespear: A Haven for Half-Orcs” is my latest contribution to the TRAILseeker Patreon. Detailing a new half-orc village that can fit into any existing campaign setting, the article also provides adventure hooks and character traits for those who want to explore the hidden community known as Pinespear.

Legends tell of bards who can lull dragons to sleep or call down storms with their music, but how does that translate into RPG terms? “Monstrous Music” is an article for TRAILseeker that explores the music of dragons, fey, giants, and harpies, complete with bardic masterpieces your characters can learn pertaining to each of those creatures.

Every Dungeons & Dragons game needs monsters, and the Creature Codex provides more than 400 new fiends and foes for your fantasy RPG experience.
The designers of the Creature Codex, Kobold Press, have a strong reputation for quality, imaginative products, which is why the Kickstarter for the book exceeded its funding goal by more than $200,000. If you didn’t participate in the Kickstarter, you can still order the book in print and PDF at KoboldPress.com and DriveThruRPG.com.
Why am I plugging this product (other than the fact that I love a good monster book)? Because it features my first publication for D&D 5th edition. My creature, the Corpse Thief, appears on page 66.
While I’m partial to my own creation, there are a ridiculous number of other creatures, both menacing and weird, that make a great addition to any D&D-style RPG. Some of my other favorites include the Light Dragon, the Keg Golem, and the Kitsune.
Bottom line: check out the Creature Codex now!
