I decided to change how I go about with the Acolyte project (see my news below). Instead of a group on Facebook, I will now be using a private forum for the discussion. As such, access to Facebook is no longer a requirement if you want to help out. Read through the news entry below if you’re interested and email me for more details.

Hey everyone! Almost done with the Monster Summoner’s Handbook as I write this, but I wanted to go over a topic that I’ve had a *lot* of asks on; that being, how can you help?

For a while now I’ve pushed this question off, as helping was a rather complicated situation. I do most of my work by using a text-parsing app I wrote to translate the text of a book into a SQL query and shoving it into a database. I didn’t have an easy way to allow others to help with that, beyond opening up my database to people I don’t really know (something I’m averse to doing).

However, I recently have wanted to add or change a few things on the site, but it would mean going back through a ton of books to find where certain material was printed so I could make sure to catalogue it. I realized that this was the perfect thing I could use help on.

So, here’s the deal: I am going to create a new Facebook group called "Acolytes of Nethys". I can’t promise that I’ll update this anytime SOON, I do have a wedding in... 17 days o.o . Once that’s all done with, I will likely start updating the group any time I can think of something to add that requires a lot of research.

If you’d like to volunteer to help, here’s what you need to do. I do have some requirements:
1. Volunteers should be 21 or older. An arbitrary preference maybe, but one I’m more comfortable having.
2. Volunteers should have access to a wide array of books, beyond the ones printed on the PRD.
- Actual books/PDFs here, I don’t consider you to have access if you get the data off my site or the d20pfsrd (or similar resources).
3. Volunteers should have enough free time to help out. This one is more on you guys. If you don’t think you would have the time for 4-7 hours a week, then probably opt out of this one.

If you meet the above requirements and are interested in helping me out, then send me an email to acolytes@archivesofnethys.com nethys@archivesofnethys.com (problem with my host, new email account not working, use my main one instead). Make sure you tell me what your Facebook name is, along with any other information you want to pass along. As always, if there ever is a point where you feel like you can’t contribute anymore, membership is optional. This is strictly voluntary.

Let me know if you have any questions! Thanks to all the suggestions for help, we’ll see where this goes. :)

Announcement time! I know there are times when it looks like I’m not doing anything on the site. No new material, nothing’s showing up, etc. This usually accompanies new books, and is entirely because I have to add new code so the site understands how to process new material (Occultist Implements, Phantoms, etc.). This is usually the longest part of any new book; once that’s in place, adding new material of the same type is relatively painless, and appears instantly on the site.

Well, you all will be happy to hear that I’ve finally gotten past the major hurdle of Occult Adventures. All new classes and related mechanics are finally live. I’m moving onto archetypes, feats, spells, and all the other things I already have pages for now, so those should be following quickly.

There’s a lot of new material, go check it out, hammer the pages, and let me know if you find any bugs!
