So We Printed Our Game Book

Last week, I finally picked up the first print run for The Elephant in the Room: Feat Taxes in Pathfinder. Printed by RapidoBooks in Montreal, and designed to mimic the Dungeons and Dragons splat-books of the 1990s, each book is 40 pages long and features all of the rules presented in our online document.

Interview with The Loot Bag

I recently was featured in the Bag of Loot podcast, The Game Maker’s Guide, where I spoke about a few of my Pathfinder game projects (all of which were co-developed with my brother Mathew). You can listen to the whole thing on YouTube!

We hit a pretty big milestone on the project this week with the completion of the bestiary: a collection of monsters specifically designed for the setting. As with...
