Hello everyone! The countdown draws ever closer to 2nd Edition, but there is still 1st Edition content to share and catalog. This month is a treat, with Devin inputting both the latest Pathfinder and the lovely Chronicle of Legends, which brings with it a host of new mechanics that required some new code to handle it. As a bonus surprise, Mark also completed Bestiary #6, bringing the last of the big books on the back burner finally to a close!

Details on all the new stuff is below. To those who have sent email and are awaiting replies, thank you for being patient - my free time these days is eaten up by focus on the new site for 2nd Edition, and I think you'll all be happy for some of the new features being worked in there. I did want to answer one popular question: when 2nd Edition comes out, will the 1st Edition site go away? The answer is an emphatic no - of course not. With the sheer number of hours I've (and many others) put into this site, I'll be hosting it long into the end times, even if our world is torn apart by Cthulian horrors. Maybe I can teach some mi-gos how to play Pathfinder.

[Player Companion] Chronicle of Legends
[RPG] Bestiary 6

Site Changes

  • Alternate Capstones, introduced in CoL, have been appended to the end of every Class to which they apply. In the Sources area you can find direct links to many of the new capstones that are class specific. There are some capstones which apply to multiple classes, and those ones do not have links out of Sources. Couldn't think of a great way to do it without cluttering up the information. May update that in the future, but for now you can still check any Class to see what their capstones are.
  • Cavalier Banners (also introduced in CoL - sensing a theme?) have been added to the site
  • Legacy Items, a type of magical scaling item, have been granted their own section. Pathfinder Unchained's scaling items will join them in a future update.
  • Magical Sets have been added to the site, and various ones which are tied to Deities will show up on that Deities' page.
  • Bugs and errors have been fixed, typos corrected, goblins tickled, etc.

Hello everyone! This month brings us a couple of new titles, along with some much-needed progress on the long backlogged Bestiary 5 - thanks once again to Mark and Devin for their efforts there! A number of minor bug fixes come with this update as well, but there’s nothing huge to note yet. We also welcome Fritz to the team, who is going to join Alex in looking at improvements for the UI.

Thanks for reading and I hope you enjoy the update!

Hi everyone! This month we have a few new books for you along with some long-needed improvements to the site’s UI.

More excitedly, I’m happy to announce we have a couple of new Acolytes to assist the website. First, Mark von Drake from the Hidden Truth joins to help with the Data Entry side of things, focusing on the Starfinder RPG (but hoping to help us catch up the final two Bestiaries on Pathfinder as well!) Second is Alex Reeser, who will be working on some UI improvements to the main menu, with a focus on mobile accessibility. Welcome to both of them!

Next, Devin has been working on an official plugin of his own that, while not ready for full release yet, will assist users in searching through the website’s content. We’ll have more on that later.

To help with announcements, we also have a new Twitter account - follow us @NethysArchives to get the latest updates on the Archives of Nethys!

Lastly, a question that continues to come up is whether or not we will be doing a website for 2E - I am very happy to announce that not only will we be doing a website for Pathfinder 2nd Edition, but we will have it online at 2e.aonprd.com on August 1, 2019 at 7:00 AM (Pacific Time)! Look forward to it then, and thanks for all of your support!
