Mixed Signals

Straight-forward gaming

Until I read Paizo's Starfinder source book Pact Worlds, I'd honestly, kind of, forgotten that the Pathfinder gods are still relevant in Starfinder. It's easy to forget. There's no Cleric class in the game, there's no differentiation between arcane and divine magic in the Core Rulebook, so you can...

A few years ago, I purchased the Pact Worlds source book for the Starfinder RPG, and read a good portion of it on flight DL508 from Atlanta to San Diego. I know this because my boarding pass for that flight was used as a bookmark. I'd read enough of the book to give me a general idea on the sett...

In a previous post, I explained why I love alignment in D&D, but I acknowledged that it doesn't have to work for everyone. I also admitted that I'd recently discovered an alternative to the system, but I didn't say where I'd found it.

When I bought the book Guildmasters' Guide to Ravnica, I w...

I'm a big fan of the alignment system in D&D, and have been since I learned about it in the original DragonLance Adventures book. I used to think that there could be nothing to lure me away from it, especially not in the context of D&D. I'll admit that recently there's been a system that has appe...

The world of Golarion is the default setting for Pathfinder, the famous fork of D&D 3.5 edition. While former Dragon Magazine publisher, Paizo, was able to inherit all D&D rules, the OGL didn't enable them to inherit all the lore, as laid out in decades of novels, magazine articles, video games...

The Pathfinder Companion book series are short books of in-depth lore about a single subject. I recently read the Elves of Golarion, and now I know everything about elves, or at least the elves as they appear in the default setting of the Pathfinder roleplaying game.
