While exploring the interwebs I recently stumbled across an interesting website, Adventureaweek.com. Each week the website provides a new fantasy adventure with statistics for Dungeons & Dragons 3.5 and the Pathfinder Roleplaying Game. These adventures can be played in their unique world which is being revealed piece by piece as each module is published each week. Or game masters can easily adapt the adventures to be played in any fantasy setting they desire. These adventures can be run straight from the website using unique features (like embedded audio) or you can download a PDF of the adventure.

For free users can gain limited access to the website to check out the service. Two adventures are available to try out which can be downloaded one-time only. For a monthly subscription of $9.99 users gain access to every adventure on the website and you can download two adventures a month. An annual subscription for $99 (a savings of $19.98 over the monthly sub) user gain access to everyone on the website, bonus materials and unlimited PDF download. They also offer a PDF purchase option for individual adventures.

For gamers still playing D&D 3.5 of fans of the Pathfinder RPG this is a great website because the non-stop stream of adventure modules is more than enough material to keep most gaming groups busy having fun. A quickly growing community has formed on the website as well.

Not too long ago Adventureaweek.com started organizing the Community Dungeon Build #1 on the forums. Jonathon Nelson produced a dungeon map with 30 rooms. Members of the community choose which room they want to develop into a deadly chamber worthy of being called old school. Submissions are still being worked on and there are still several rooms to be selected.

Gamers looking for a great resource with a growing community should check out this website. I geek Adventureaweek.com and I think you will too.

The Expanded Shaman

New Paths 2: The Expanded Shaman from Kobold Press

The fine folks at Kobold Press sent me a copy of their newest release, New Paths 2: The Expanded Shaman for the Pathfinder Roleplaying Game. The Shaman first appeared in Kobold Quarterly, issue 21, and KP has added new material to the class including three new archetypes as well as new powers and feats.

I won’t keep you in suspense. I gave The Expanded Shaman five out of five stars. Check out the full review at Examiner.com.

 

Ambush in Absalom

Paizo’s first PSQ.

Paizo recently launched their revamped “Get Involved!” program which was previously known as the Open Call for writer submissions. I could go into the long and the short of it but basically the old program was not working well for Paizo. Nor was it working well for writers who were submitting their work for consideration. Out with the old! In with the new!

Under the new program writers submit 2000-word mini-adventures which showcase the skills of the writer for Paizo and provides the company with adventures which only need a little bit of work to be ready to publish. It’s a win-win for everyone.

Ambush in Absalom is the first Pathfinder Society Quest (PSQ) scenario and is being used to demonstrate the kind of work Paizo is looking for. Download it for free and check it out.

Pathfinder RPG Advanced Race Guide

Options, options, options…

Finally! After a long period of development and an open playtest involving more than 50,000 gamers the Pathfinder Roleplaying Game Advanced Race Guide has hit the shelves. To cut to the chase this book lives up to all of my expectations in every regard. Not only does it provide an immense number of options for the standard races but it also presents thirty new races as well as a system for gamers to create races of their own.

Dark Roads and Golden Hells

Think “Manual of the Planes” for Midgard but with more material to work with.

I just finished reading Dark Roads & Golden Hells. This game supplement was developed for the Pathfinder Roleplaying Game to be used with the Midgard setting by Open Design (a.k.a. Kobold Quarterly). I usually enjoy books like this but this one was especially nice because it is packed full of not only material I can use with the PFRPG but with just about any game I can think of. “Premise Zero” of this book is Plug and Play and it definitely lives up to that. I even found some inspiration for my Mage chronicle.
