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.

    This is a great option in lieu of colored bases or colored-star stickers.

    • Cool. I know of Alea Tools’ magnetic markers -Tina used them for her witch and was happy with how quickly and visually they denoted conditions. I’m not familiar with Stuffer Stack. They seem a bit cumbersome, but I might order a sample size to see how I feel with them in play. The similar solution Tina came up with was using a white out marker to write numbers up to 10 on Medium and Large pawn bases.

    I primarily use miniatures, not pawns, so interchangeable bases are not an option for me. I didn’t know of the Alea Tools, those could be useful. I use the Stuffer Shack numbers to identify individuals, and then the pegs with an X to indicate there is a condition that I then go look up on my initiative tracker… I don’t mark each condition on the mini (though Stuffer Shack has condition specific markers.) Has worked well the couple of times I’ve actually remembered to do it.

    I actually discovered Stuffer Shack when I was looking for horses.
