Quick links list for design advice articles

At PaizoCon, a number of people mentioned they've found my advice articles useful, so I thought I'd make a link list about the articles so that it's easier to find the ones you're looking for. The quick link list is now available in the right pane.

Monster pitch reviews on Blazing 9

A few weeks ago, I announced a monster pitch challenge in the Blazing 9 thread on If you're interested in monster design, have a look at the reviews (I'm trying to post one per day) and take part in the discussion. There's still two days left until the deadline, so it's still possible to submit if you want a bit of practice for next year's RPGSS, Here Be Monsters, and other design contests!

The Emerald Spire Review – Part 2

Here's the second part of the Emerald Spire review, written by guest blogger Neal Powell!

New blog posts soon!

I've been quite busy lately, and haven't been able to post regularly. I'll soon be able to blog normally again, though! I have a few excellent articles written by guest bloggers waiting to be published, and I'll continue writing about archetypes in the near future. I'm also thinking I might do a series of articles about spells because I've designed a few dozen of them recently.

And by the way, the new logo (by Joe Kondrak!) looks pretty awesome, or what do you think?
