PF1e: Summon Nature’s Ally II Unchained

Part 2 of our nine week series continues with the unchaining of the summon nature’s ally II spell. You can see the unchained list for summon nature’s ally I spell here. This level is where the monsters can start to be an annoyance. Compare that with level 1’s monsters where they are little more thanContinue reading “PF1e: Summon Nature’s Ally II Unchained”

PF 1e: Summon Nature’s Ally I Unchained

So I was looking over my unfinished projects the other day and I ran across the expended list of monsters for the summon nature’s ally spells. So I decided to pick up where I left off and finish the list. If you want to see the list of expanded monsters for the summon monster spells,Continue reading “PF 1e: Summon Nature’s Ally I Unchained”

3 Rules for Running Easier Adventures

I recently ran into a forum post on the Pathfinder 2e boards asking Paizo to alter their adventure design. Reading it, I remembered similar complaints about Pathfinder 1e and a lesser extent D&D 5e. I don’t believe Paizo or anyone else is going to alter the way they create adventures because the product should beContinue reading “3 Rules for Running Easier Adventures”

PF 1e: Spell Codex Artwork

Previously when talking about the Book of Magic: Spell Codex Volume 1 we shared the spells inside. So far we shared domination link as well as share skin and greater share skin. Today we want to show off some of the artwork within. We wanted the book to appear like an ancient spell time thatContinue reading “PF 1e: Spell Codex Artwork”

PF 1e: Book of Magic: Spell Codex Volume 1

The Collected Knowledge of a Hundred Spellcasters Bringing together all the spells from nearly two dozen companion sources, the Book of Magic: Spell Codex Volume 1 has something for everyone. These spells have been updated for clarity and expanded to cover classes introduced after their original publication. Gathered together for the first time, these spellsContinue reading “PF 1e: Book of Magic: Spell Codex Volume 1”

Pathfinder 1e: Share Skin

With the Book of Magic: Spell Codex Volume 1 coming out soon, we’re talking about the spells you will find. Last week, we talked about domination link. Today, we’re talking about share skin and its bigger cousin—greater share skin. Originally appearing in Blood of the Moon, the weaker of the two spells let the spellcasterContinue reading “Pathfinder 1e: Share Skin”

Pathfinder 1e: Domination Link

One of the main things we decided to do when we set out to do the Book of Magic: Spell Codex Volume 1 was to update the spells for classes that came after the spell’s original publication. It simply isn’t fair to classes published later to not get access to certain spells simply because thoseContinue reading “Pathfinder 1e: Domination Link”

PF1e: Discussing the Spell Codex

It is time I start talking about my secret project. The name is the Book of Magic: Spell Codex Volume 1. This book takes spells from a number of “companion” books, removes any campaign-specific details, and puts them all together in one place for you. This volume takes all the spells from 22 different booksContinue reading “PF1e: Discussing the Spell Codex”

PF 1e: Discussing the Arcanist Codex

Earlier this week I handed the stat blocks for the Book of Beasts: Arcanist Codex off to the editors for checking over. While this is a huge step to getting this book produced, it is not the final step. As JBE’s two brilliant editors are making sure stat blocks are excellent, I begin moving toContinue reading “PF 1e: Discussing the Arcanist Codex”

PF1e: Tiny Chapel

I had a conversation this past weekend about secure shelter and how I think a paladin should have this on their spell list. Short of the long, paladins should be able to provide respite to those in need and defend the vulnerable by shoving the weak inside and fighting the monsters outside, knowing the defenselessContinue reading “PF1e: Tiny Chapel”
