KD Plays – Secrets of Magic Playtest

Dustin Knight runs a modified version of his Pathfinder Society Quest, Wayfinder Origins, for Ryan Costello, Alexander Augunas, Vanessa Hoskins, and Andrew Sturtevant to compare the magus and the summoner to a fighter/wizard and a conjuration specialist wizard at 6th level.

NOTE: Ryan here. I tried to recreate his 1e staff magus. Early on, I mention that unlike my 1e version, I can’t use a magic staff as a weapon, so my character has a staff of abjuration as well as bo staff. After we finished recording, everyone pointed out a line in the magic staff description that explicitly states that magic staves can be used as weapons. My mistake.

What started as one gamer wanting to talk about his love of a game grew into a podcast network. Ryan founded what would become the Know Direction Podcast network with Jason "Jay" Dubsky, his friend and fellow 3.5 enthusiast. They and their game group moved on to Pathfinder, and the Know Direction podcast network was born. Now married and a father, Ryan continues to serve the network as the director of logistics and co-host of Upshift podcast, dedicated to the Essence20 RPG system he writes for and helped design. You can find out more about Ryan and the history of the network in this episode of Presenting: http://knowdirectionpodcast.com/2021/01/presenting-ryan-costello/
