Before Perram joined Know Direction as the show’s first full time co-host, the podcast could have best been describe as a bunch of Pathfinder RPG stuff. Perram brings a knowledge of and love for Golarion to Know Direction, something any Pathfinder podcast is lacking without. On top of being a man on the pulse of the Pathfinder campaign setting, Perram is the founder of the superlative site for Pathfinder spellcasters, Perram’s Spellbook, a free web application that creates customized spell cards.

  1. Don’t know where else to post this, so I’ll leave it here. To the folks who asked questions about visually impaired players, braille, dice, and maps. The questioner mentioned that his player had found braille dice for everything other than the d20. My very first DM was blind. He had braille dice for the d4-d12. But for the d20, he bought a some giant d20s. Like, the size of his fist. Even though they weren’t braille, with a little practice he could simply feel the numbers incised in the die. He needed help to pick out the 6 from the 9, but he was \able to ‘read’ all the other numbers. Those huge dice usually cost about $5 each today.

    As for the maps, he actually used a braille writer (like a typewriter with only about 12 keys) to make maps that he, as the DM could read. Yes, the maps usually ended up rather grid-like, but it was the 90s, so we walked 10 miles uphill both ways to game and we liked it! 😉

    But a GM willing to put in a bit of extra time and effort can make maps at least semi-legible to the visually impaired. You wouldn’t want to ruin your flip maps, but if you printed out a map, you could go over the grid lines with either a hot glue gun or puff paint, and even add in at least basic features like walls or bushes by making the lines thicker or thinner.

    I owe my learning to play AD&D from that DM, since he ‘made’ me read the entire Player’s Handbook aloud to him, so that after about 5 years of running games, he finally used his braille writer to transcribe the PHB into braille as I read it to him.
