We just debuted the Pathfinder RPG’s newest iconic character, Shardra, the iconic shaman (a member of one of the new classes in the Advanced Class Guide). She’s the character we at Paizo will be using as our stand-in for shaman players in art, pregenerated characters, miniatures, stories, etc, going forward. She’s an awesome looking character, who, like all of our iconics, is depicted by artist Wayne Reynolds. Her Meet the Iconics story is written by one of our close friends and veteran freelancers Crystal Frasier. Shardra’s amazing and we’ll be seeing her adventures as one of the Pathfinder RPG’s iconic heroes for years to come.
We’ve had iconics of many genders, ethnicities, sexualities, etc, but Shardra is our first transgender iconic. This might not be a big deal for you, but I expect it to be for a fair number of readers, fantasy lovers, friends, and fellow gamers out there.
The Pathfinder Iconics have always been our stand-ins for player characters, for our readers, for the adventurers taking part in Pathfinder games across the world. We’ve purposefully made these heroes a diverse array of characters, not just for artistic reasons, but as an attempt to make sure that anyone can look through a Pathfinder RPG rulebook, adventure,  story, whatever, and find a character who they identify them, whether it be a dashing fighter like Valeros, a lesbian cleric like Kyra, or a woman in tune with the spirits like Shardra.
If you haven’t had the opportunity yet, please check out Shardra’s meet the iconic story. And even better, drop a note on the Paizo message boards, welcoming her to the team and making sure all our friends and family members who identify with her know they’re welcome and wanted at Pathfinder game tables everywhere.
Thanks everyone.

Friend dropped off some tomatoes from their garden, and I, feeling a mite peckish, thought to make some pico de gallo and use some left over taco meat to make some nacho salad.

So I chopped the tomato, a red onion, mixed them together, added some garlic and a little olive oil, some salt and then tasted it.

It tasted like bruschetta topping.

So I shrugged, added some red wine vinegar and some Italian-esque herbs, and toasted up some baguette rounds, rubbed them with garlic and a touch of butter, and then went to town…

It was still delicious.

I want to have a daughter.

I want to name her Tequila Mockingbird <LAST NAME REDACTED>.

My wife says I am not allowed in the room if we ever have children.

She says that I am to remain in the waiting room, and she’ll take care of this all by herself.

I don’t see what the issue with that name is.

She says it sounds like a cheesy porn name.

I don’t get to have any fun….

I would be the worst person to have resurrection powers.  I could bring back great thinkers, people of substance who could create and innovate and change the world.

Instead I’d bring back Groucho Marx, George Carlin, Richard Pryor, Mitch Hedburg, and others like that…

HEY!  YOU!

So I’m taking part in this thing in October.  It’s a minicon over in Garner, I’m going to be playing a LOT of Pathfinder Society stuff, but the great thing is I’m playing FOR CHARITY!

Well, all the table fees and con admission stuff is going to charity.  It’s all going to Duke Children’s Hospital, but it’s not like y’all can sponsor me and do something like, “For every sneak attack you do, Jon, I’ll donate $25 to the charity!”  (You could totally do that, though.  That’d be awesome.)

Anyway, I just wanted to let you guys know about this.  If you can make it to the area and you want to play some Pathfinder and help out some kids, it would be awesome of you to come.  If you just want to play some Pathfinder and helping out some kids is just a nice side benefit, that’s okay too.  Also, if you just want to help out some kids and don’t really have any clue about Pathfinder, that’s also really cool!

Here’s the link to the minicon website.

Wtf is this

Redneck wisdom

I live in Florida and I must submit the follow facts:
There is no such thing as Redneck Wisdom, that goes well beyond an oxymoron.
I live in fear of people who but this sign.
Florida wants to kill me.

Anyone who has this sign in their home is not a person I would want to be within one hundred miles of O.O

I live in Pennsylvania and the saddest part about this is that almost everyone in my town would probably buy this and be proud of it. 

:(
I hope that you are able to move somewhere better someday soon…

I live in Vermont…we have very few of these kinds of people left…they mostly live out in the middle of the mountains and come down every four years to vote for Cal Coolidge.

Proof that there things even more horrifying than Bigfoot out there in the mountains O.O;

Definitely.  However, I love Vermont.  I love the mountains.  This is home.  I just live in the second biggest city in the state.  And we’re in desperate need of some LGBT social spots.

Hopefully you will get some cool places for LGBTQI people in Vermont to hang out and meet up together…it sucks when there aren’t really any LGBTQI spaces to be found :(

I went to school in Vermont, which obviously makes me insanely qualified to talk about the state.  But seriously, I went to school in Putney, just outside Brattleboro, and I remember there being a rather nice LGBT+ scene there.  This was almost 15 years ago though, and because I&#8217;m not LGBT+ I may not have been as aware of the real vibe there, but there were things like &#8216;Dyke Night&#8217; at the local coffee shop, which was poetry, music, and a couple stand up comics all from the lesbian community.  That was a couple times a month.  I want to say that there were a few LGBT+ mixers, but I&#8217;m not sure if they were LGBT+ specific or just general mixers that had a large LGBT+ presence.  I remember going to a bar called &#8216;The Rainbow Room,&#8217; which was a gay bar.
As I said, not being a part of that community, I was never really in the know&#8230;  Everything I talk about here is stuff I experience through some of my friends at school, being invited by them to these types of things.  I hope you find some stuff near you soon!

I got a Pathfinder novel this weekend.  Dead Trees version, so the first dead trees book I’ve read in a long time.  I was reading it to go to sleep last night, and I got to do something I haven’t been able to do in a LONG time…

I dogeared a page to remember where I was.

It felt so good…  SO GOOD!

Oh!  Before I forget!

Got my first Pathfinder Boon at the Knights of the Fiat-Lux con this weekend!  Along with a lot of fun games and a free Pathfinder Novel, I got a boon that gives me the Dwarven language and some bonuses to Knowledge checks regarding Sky Citadels.

Good times, and money was raised for charity!  Huzzah!
