New Section

The Rules section debuted on the Starfinder side of the site last month, and now I’ve brought it over to the Pathfinder side. Devin has already populated the database with all of the rules from the Core book*, and this new section has been added to the Search engine.

*There are a couple of sections still pending - Skills will have its own section, as will Traps. Both of these I’m aiming for another small update this coming weekend.

We have a couple new books for the Archives! Devin has been hard at work and helped complete Ultimate Wilderness, along with adding Merchant’s Manifest. In addition, I've completed a number of changes to support animal companions and their owners:
  • Feats for companions have been adjusted, going away from the static original list and updated to a new dynamic list that includes changes from UW and any other books which allow new feats on this list.
  • The companion pages have been updated - now the full list will only show a summary of each available companion; selecting the creature’s name (or the listed link) will take you to the full details for that companion. This also gives each option its own individual hyperlink (a much needed feature considering there are 176 of them now).
  • The paladin, ranger, and cavalier classes have been updated so their list of available companions will change dynamically if other books (like UW) add more.
  • Plant Companions are a new option in the Companions area.
In addition to all that, Herbs have been updated with new rules from UW.

With regards to all the new lists above that are meant to update "dynamically", please let me know if there were additions from other books beyond their original source or Ultimate Wilderness. We’ll be keeping an eye out going forward but there are a few hundred books to look back through, so if you happen to know and want to save me some time, please shoot me an email!

As for my call to developers on the last post, a couple of the first ones that reached out for me are currently working on a new prototype for a very comprehensive search that I can't wait to bring to the site. I won't need additional help at the moment, so thank you to everyone that sent me an email, and apologies if I haven't had a chance to respond yet! I've filed away many emails in the event I have need for future projects.

That’s it for tonight; an update to Starfinder should be coming next weekend, going to finish up the Core book (I hope) with Starships and more of the core rules. I'm a bit limited on time tonight so will not be making the usual announcements on other sites - if someone wishes to do so on my behalf, then enjoy the internet points for doing so! Thanks for all your support and enjoy the Archives!

Hi everyone - I’ve wanted to improve on the Search engine for the Archives for quite some time, and have decided that it may be time to reach out for some aid. As I’ve said in the past, I’m a self-learner when it comes to all things web design and programming and the murky waters of Search Indexing are very deep indeed.

If you are a web developer and think you have what it takes to put together a useful search for the Archives (would need to be proficient in asp.net/C# and SQL database structure) then please, send me an email! You can reach me at nethys@archivesofnethys.com - let me know your background (especially experience related to search engines) and rate/cost. We can go over more about what I’m looking for then.

Thanks for reading!

Getting back to the Pathfinder side of things this week, Book of the Damned is now complete along with an AP and a few other ones from the Player Companion line. Huge thanks to Devin for all of his work on these! The AP line is still the most behind, along with the remainder of Ultimate Wilderness, though I hope to get that caught up once Starfinder is in a good place.

The new Starfinder side of the Archives of Nethys is now live, over at www.aonsrd.com! Go check out the main page for more details on what's new and what's to come. As for Pathfinder, an update will be coming on this site later this week, including the fully completed Book of the Damned (thanks be to Devin!)

Also, you can now get to this site at www.aonprd.com - the www.archivesofnethys.com will be maintained so all old links will work, and eventually that domain will just forward to the aonprd.com one. So long as I maintain the site, I'll keep a hold of all primary domains used to ensure historical accuracy. :)
