About the Show

Rise of the Rulelord is not your typical TTRPG podcast. It's not an actual play, and I don't have a co-host to chit chat with. Rather, it's all about teaching you how to play Pathfinder Second Edition, in as fun a way as I can make it!

I use jokes, music, sounds, and jokes to bring the rules of Pathfinder to life! As much as possible, I also love to bring in the PaizoVerse with C.U.P. voice overs, interviews, collaborations, and shout outs. Make sure to subscribe on your podcatcher of choice for new episodes when I get around to making them!

Who I is

My name is Pete, a playboy Oregonian bureaucrat by day, and masked GM and podcaster by night. I love to run Pathfinder, whether it's for Pathfinder Society or at my home table. I've also been a mod on r/Pathfinder2e, head organizer for both Beginner Box Days and Third Party Kon, and a contributor on several 3rd party books, most notably Monstrous Beasts by Eldritch Osiris Games.

Regarding Sponsorships and Collaborations

I don't do sponsorships. Tried it, didn't like it. Except if you're Demiplane. I will sponsor the hell out of Pathfinder Nexus. HMU. 

Otherwise, if you are a creator in need of a push, check out the C.U.P. voice over or lets set up an interview to talk about your Pathfinder 2e or TTRPG system neutral project. I also love to work with other shows, such as Double DM, Secret Nerd Podcast, Slovenly Trulls, and BadLuckGamer. My interview times above are also my availability to come onto your show as a guest if you want. Would be super jazzed to be a guest on your actual play or run a Pathfinder scenario for you!
