Play resumes Monday for our new BB customized campaign. It was relayed to me they are “having fun” with everything I had done so far encounter and story-wise, but they also expressed a disinterest in dungeons. This saddens me as I am a dungeon DM by choice. My next three sessions were a dungeon crawl below a ruined old watch tower in a swamp. Now I have just a few days to come up with an alternative.
Alas. We’ll see what I come up with.
Rough Character Sheet image
The inspiration for this blog has been asked by Paizo to change his fan created stuff to the point of becoming too daunting of a task and has thus decided to pull it altogether.

I have an especially heavy heart as I believe I am the reason this transpired.
Explanation- There was a post on the Paizo forums that presented a beautiful fan created class write up. It was stunning and looked like it was designed to be part of the Beginner Box’s Heroes Handbook. The main problem was it looked exactly like the BB HH classes. It utilized paizo art, borders, the exact color scheme, etc. I made a friendly comment on while pretty it was a blatant copyright infringement and should be rethought.
He called me a nazi for this.
I responded saying I was trying to help and posted a link to the Community Use area of the site. Paizo saw this and cracked down fast removing all links to the material and his post attacking me. They also removed mine (not sure why. I was just trying to help them).
Regardless, they pulled it then began culling other fan content in the BB area. This included Ed’s wonderful creations without which I would have finally walked away from the Paizo money machine and most likely stopped roleplaying altogether until 5e came out if it interested me.
Farewell fan inspired creations. It is a sad day.
I have to admit I am a little excited. My new campaign kicks off this evening with a Sahuagin attack at sea. Surviving the initial attack isn’t enough though as they must fight off the tentacles of a Kraken long enough to escape the doomed ship.
This will be balanced stat wise to their levels but description wise I wonder if they will ever step foot on a water going vessel again. Time will tell.
I have fixed a few errors on the Character Sheet I made for the Pathfinder Beginner Box.
Here is a direct link to a character sheet I made to be a fast reference sheet.
PFBB Character Sheet – Blank
This is a quick sample of a character sheet design I designed for my homebrew Beginner Box game.
This is for a customized and knowingly illegal rogue.
