Gaming

Wes has worked on literally hundreds of roleplaying, card, and board game projects from a wide range of publishers. The following are just a few.

I forget exactly what section of this I wrote, but I was the lead on the project, scripting the format and content of the project then wrangling a team of gaming greatest designers. Creating a book that’s accessible enough for beginning GMs but useful to veterans as well was a real challenge, but over the years this has proven to be one of Paizo’s most popular books—so we did something right!

“Bestiary: Fungus Leshy” – The Pathfinder RPG’s first leshy, reimagined from the Slavic myth as a family of plant allies that nature-loving heroes can create and adventure with as companions.

Available at Amazon and Paizo.

 

 

 

 

 

I wrote this treatise on terrifying creatures along with Paizo Creative Director James Jacobs and future Paizo Senior Dev Rob McCreary. Doing a bit of cherry picking, I snapped up ghosts, mummies, and, of course, vampires.

Available at Amazon and Paizo.

 

 

 

 

 

“Bestiary” – Featuring the haniver gremlin, rot grub, torble, and the ukobach devil. I wrote the ukobach and did significant development on the strix, the latter of which has grown into a fascinating and deadly race in the Pathfinder world.

“Bestiary” – I had a significant hand in working on Ahriman, Lord of the Divs, and the azi dragons in this volume. I still chuckle about Ahriman’s swallow whole ability that sends creatures into a terrifying Hell-dimension.

“Bestiary” – Oh, this is a neat one! I wrote up the coeurl for this volume, a creature from the story “Black Destroyer” by A. E. van Vogt. Van Vogt’s estate was kind enough to give us permission to stat up the monster. This is doubly cool, because Black Destroyer is the inspiration behind D&D’s displacer beast—a monster we can’t use in Pathfinder products. But getting permission to include the monster behind the monster and give a shout-out to Van Vogt’s amazing work was fantastic! Our agreement was for one book, so the coeurl is closed content and never appeared in later Pathfinder accessories, but it was a fun collaboration for that one time.

Available at Amazon and Paizo.

 

 

 

“Bestiary” – I stated up the shaitan genies and xacarba demon for this volume. The shaitan were adopted as Pathfinder’s earth genies and have a fascinating mythological and etymological history. The xacarba features a sidebar on the origins of the magic word “abracadabra,” from which its name takes obvious inspiration.

I nearly wrote this entire book. The adventure “Endless Night,” wherein you infiltrate a drow city disguised as drow, is mine. The article “Zirnakaynin,” detailing the largest city of Golarion’s drow, is mine. The mini morlock adventure “The Blood Below” is mine. I even wrote several of the Bestiary’s monsters, the omox, mothman, and deep crow. That last monster is worth special mention as it’s a creature the crew at Penny Arcade gave us permission to stat-up, an underground dwelling crow-dragon-abomination guaranteed to ruin deep-delving heroes. There was a point where I was intent on writing every page of this product, and while that didn’t shape up, I got pretty dang close!
