Hi everyone! Tonight's update is another large one, with a few massive books and some new additions to the UI, including new theme options Star has designed to complement the existing two on the site - click the theme icon in the top-right to check out the new settings/theme menu we're calling "Shelyn's Corner".

With new features come potential bugs, so as always if you spot anything awry, please come let us know on one of our Discord feedback channels. We'll be doing another update this weekend to fix any issues found during that time, so let us know as soon as possible if you find something to ensure it stands the best chance of getting fixed in time (otherwise, it'll be a bug until the next official release). We'll be pushing up the remaining art on the weekend as well (the Poppet ancestry and the creatures from PF#171-172 haven't been processed quite yet).

Lastly, we're still waiting on PFS sanctioning for Grand Bazaar and Guns & Gears, but will update the content from those books once that occurs.

As always, a huge thanks to everyone on the team for getting everything ready and in the systems. Enjoy the new updates, and thanks for using the Archives!

Site Updates

  • We're testing out some new grid UI options to Ancestry, Classes, and Equipment on the main slideout menu along with the Classes UI on the Classes page itself. These are new ways you can navigate around the site. You can access them by left-clicking the square grid icon on the menu or by right-clicking that section of the menu. NOTE: There is a known issue where the Class grid includes "Class Kits" options on every class though not every class has a published kit, so some of these will result in a blank page. We'll get this fixed for next update.
  • The theme selection in the top-right has been expanded into a new menu called "Shelyn's Corner". Within you will find some Setting options for the website (currently only usable on desktop, we'll be introducing mobile-specific ones in the coming updates) along with more theme options beyond the original two which will work on both desktop and mobile alike.

New Settings In "Shelyn's Corner" (Desktop Only)

  • Expand Sidebar on hover: On by default. If disabled, the sidebar can only be opened by clicking the mask icon on the top left.
  • Sidebar can be shrunk: On by default. If disabled, the sidebar will remain permanently open, pushing the page content to the right.
  • Reduce page width: Off by default. If enabled, the main content will be squished towards the center of the screen.

Hi everyone! We have a small update for you tonight with some fixes for a few bugs that got into database, along with some updates to the new UI/tables. Namely, Star has come up with a fantastic way that users can now remove/reorder columns in a given table and the site will remember your choices for future loads. To use this feature, just right-click the red header bar where the column names are at and you will get an option to toggle on/off whichever columns you wish. Right now this only works effectively on Desktop, but we're working on getting it to mobile as well.

Stay tuned to our next update in about a month when we're back with more books and more improvements!

Hi everyone! This one is a BIG update, and for more reasons then Secrets of Magic! For over ten years, I've had much of the same design with the Archives, save for some small alterations in the menu. Thanks in large part to our new acolyte Star's expertise with design and learning more about what we can do with our Telerik controls, we have a brand new UI to bring to all of you!

The new slideout UI is made available by mousing over the left side of the screen, though for users with touch screens and no mouse, you can achieve the same effect by clicking the mask in the top-left corner. Many of the original menu items have been re-grouped and may not be in exactly the same place as you remember, but all should be present. If you don't like the new UI, just click the "Classic Menu" option available at the bottom of the slideout menu and you'll be able to use the old art same as you always did.

We have more changes with this update and more to come in the future, especially to the PF1e and SF sides of the side. We've made some improvements with how the new tables operate on mobile but still have some work to do before we're happy with how the filters function. Elements of the new slideout UI may come to mobile in the future as well, but for this update we limited the new UI change to the desktop view.

Lastly, I wanted to give a few couple of large thank yous with this update, both to the members on my team and to the folks supporting us online.

To my team: this update had a LOT of moving parts and I would have given this venture up ages ago if I was still going it alone - thank you everyone for your valuable help and amazing skillsets at keeping the Archives chugging along.

To the fans/users: thank you immensely for all of your support! August was a huge month for Patreon support, love on twitter, fantastic YouTube videos, and more! I'm grateful every day that I'm still getting to work on this fantastic site and couldn't wish for a better community.

All of that said - ENJOY THE NEW UPDATES!!!

New Books

Site Updates

  • New UI! The slideout UI is now available on Desktop. If you wish to access the old menu, just click "Classic Menu" at the bottom near the search option. For users on touch screens, click the Nethys mask in the top-left to open/close the menu. The new icons come from the fantastic open source font RPG-Awesome
  • The "All Spells" telerik table has been temporarily changed with regards to the "Heightens" column. Until I figure out best practices with setting a default/changeable filter, we've decided to adjust the column to a simple true/false that shows "can a spell heighten", much like the superscript H on the list table. As such, the tables will only show one copy of each spell. If you wish to access the "show spells at all heightenable levels" functionality, you can do so with the Spell Lists. We will be bringing this column back in a future update once we figure out how best to handle it.
  • Telerik tables should scroll properly on mobile devices now.
  • We've adjusted our "spoiler" logic to only show on non-Common entries. As far as we've seen, nothing Common from an AP/Adventure has included spoilers, so we feel safe in removing the text from those entries.
  • The "Proficiency Without Level" variant has been added as a new option to creature statblocks. It doesn't function at the same time as Elite/Weak yet but will be an addition with a future release.

Hi everyone! Tonight we have the first book of Strength of Thousands for you, along with its Player's Guide. We've also gotten caught up on the art that's been missed, updating the Mwangi Expanse, Ruby Phoenix, Malevolence, and first Strength of Thousands entries with beautiful and/or terrifying pieces.

Lastly, we're happy to welcome a new member to the team, Star! Star will be taking over CSS/design responsibilities from Alex, who's had to bow out from site help to focus more on some other priorities. We've already got some new changes to the look of the site we hope you'll like, but let us know your feedback on the Discord channels! We'll be making more changes in future updates to come.

Thanks for using the site, and enjoy!

Hi everyone! The update tonight adds more adventure-specific content (big thanks to Devin and Milan for working so hard on that), along with improving the CSS for our new tables. The new styling is thanks to the user "Federico Castro" who took it upon themselves to figure out some of the Telerik specific code and give us some recomendations.

We're not done yet with the changes, to be clear, but these fixes should make the filter buttons visible (and usable) for everyone while also making the tables more usable on mobile. Scrolling around on them isn't perfect yet but it's much more functional then it was.

The filters themselves will be mixed functionality on mobile - the dropdown checklists should work, but the other filter functions aren't setup yet. We're getting there.

Thanks everyone for the patience, we hope you enjoy the updates!
