Title : Pathfinder Roleplaying Game : Monsters Codex

Publisher : Paizo Publishing 


 

As a storyteller, picking up Paizo's Monsters Codex for $39.99 was a hard call to make. I've passed on it so many times but found it second-hand (or possibly third-hand) for $7.00 and felt comfortable taking the risk on a book that I originally thought was just a collection of pre-created NPC monsters that someone c...

Title : Pathfinder Chronicles - Classic Horrors Revisited 

Publisher : Paizo Publishing 


 

Paizo's $19.99 books are some of my favorite books on the market. The ability to drop $20 ( less than the price of a meal at a sit down restaurant in my town ) on a book that I can not only use for my various gaming projects but that is just high quality and a good read speaks to me as a consumer. So with...

Title : Pathfinder Campaign Settings - Artifacts and Legends

Publisher : Paizo Publishing 


 

Artifacts and Legends cost me $20, roughly the cost of a pizza and some crazy bread on a Saturday night when my wife does not feel like cooking and I can't make a decision on what we are going to do for dinner so I just say "... lets order a pizza." That being said, unlike the pizza that kind of leaves me fe...

Title : Pathfinder Chronicles - The Great Beyond

Publisher : Paizo Publishing 


 

Let me start off by saying three things sold this book to me. The price point was only $19.99, the word "Beyond" spoke to the part of my Storyteller brain that loves strange dimensional travel and weird places outside of our own reality, and the cover by Wayne Reynolds. Lirt ( That's the guy with the white hair ) runnin...

Title : Pathfinder Chronicles - Classic Treasures Revisited

Publisher : Paizo Publishing 


 

Have you ever heard of a Vorpal Sword? How about a Bag of Holding? Have you ever been in a game and had a Storyteller say "You find a Staff of The Magi" and felt your stomach fill with butterflies as your mind raced with the millions of things you could do with such a powerful magic item in your hands? Well C...

Videogames are complicated and tricky things . It's easy to get so much right in a game only to have one or two flaws undercut everything in the game that works. A game can get everything technically right, be lovely to listen to and see, be stocked full of interesting mechanics and features, but if the right rhythm and balance aren't achieved in its development it can miss out on the most crucial...

Hey everyone welcome to the inaugural installment of Old Man Gamer, a hopefully regular feature of the Old Magic Gaming. I'm Jim, known to you as either Ogun the Anvil in "The Great Old Ones", Johnny Sparks, the Rocker with the Robot Arm in "Heavy Gigs in Seas Side City". When I am not playing in all of those games I am editing the podcasts for OldMagicGaming.com, as well as appearing on a veritab...

Title : Occult Realms

Publisher : Paizo Publishing 


 

Occult Realms is an expansion to the Occult Adventures. It's a little on the smaller side as far as supplement books go, only clocking in at 63 pages. However, the book does have some useful and frankly quite delightful offerings that make the $20.00 I paid for it worth it. 

While I run all my games out of my long running homebrew setting, those w...

Title : Book of The Damned

Publisher : Paizo Publishing

First things first, I bought the three original volumes of the Book of the Damned Campaign Settings when they first came out. So going into this I have a slant towards being a fan of this material and lore. I have deep appreciation for the work and effort Paizo puts into crafting their more "forbidden" lore. Unlike a lot of resources about thin...
