Introducing Linzi: Your Own Personal Chronicler

Posted by Owlcat Games (Creator)

Before we begin - please check out our companion miniature poll

Dear Pathfinders! As you may recall, one possible add-on for backers of the boxed edition of Pathfinder: Kingmaker is a companion miniature. But which companion should be granted this honor? 11 characters will join you on your adventure in the Stolen Lands, but only one of them can be immortalized as a miniature. Which one is it going to be? That decision is up to you - our community! If you would like to vote in the companion miniature poll, hop on over to our official forums here:

You can find the poll at the very top of the ‘Dev Forum’ section. Please note: you can only access the Dev forums if you have transferred your Kickstarter pledge to our backer portal. If you still need to do this and require like help and instructions, please send us an email to and we'll lend a hand!

Introducing Linzi


It's time to meet a very special member of your party: Linzi the halfling bard. Linzi used to be a student at the Pitax Academy of Grand Arts, but was expelled for "impudence towards persons of the highest esteem" — that is, for writing a raunchy limerick about Castruccio Irovetti, ruler of Pitax. Unabashed, she moved on with a bold plan: to find the next great hero in the making, join their party, and document their road to victory in the greatest book Golarion has ever seen. She has chosen you as her main character, and she's not leaving your side before she sees the end of your great adventure! Sure, she never got her degree, so her turn of phrase might be a bit awkward sometimes, and she might use her artistic license to exaggerate things a bit... But only to deliver the best account possible of your noble (or ignoble) deeds! What she lacks in bardic education, she makes up for in devotion to her vocation.

Don’t let Linzi’s cheerful personality fool you – when it matters, she has a fierce spirit, loyal to her friends, and determined to follow them to glory, no matter what stands in their way. There is history to be made, a story to be told, and she is adamant to be there from the prologue to the last page. However, don't expect her to flatter you: Linzi is a free spirit who holds little reverence towards noble titles. She truthfully records your deeds, good or evil, and leaves it to the future generations to judge what kind of person you were.

Like all bards, Linzi can handle regular blades and bows, and protect herself with light armor and a shield. She is also quite competent with magic, but her true power lies in her music — she can compose enchanting songs that inspire heroism in her allies, and makes her enemies tremble.

Linzi is eager to help you rule your realm. Charismatic and well-meaning, she makes for a great diplomat who always tries to find a mutually-beneficial solution for all parties. She is also willing to lend a hand to support your young kingdom's cultural life, and let the artistic talents of the people flourish.

Hail to the Kings!

      Ok.. finally got it working by resetting my password a few times, logging in on the backer/preorder site, then taking that link to the forums, then logging in again. Apparently direct links don't like me.

      I agree that Linzi is way to similar to Lini. Plus, it just sounds like "Lindsey", a 1990 era girl's name (in America).

      We've received a whole bunch of emails from users asking for their pledge transfer codes as a response to this update. We're going through the list now and we'll be sending out the codes and instructions ASAP. Hang tight! :)

      @Joshua Brown - our backer portal and forums are linked and use the exact same login credentials. If you're registered on the backer portal, then you use that exact same info to log in to the forums. You don't register for both separately.
      The reason they're linked is because otherwise the forums wouldn't know your ledge level. They're using the backer portal login info so your account displays all the appropriate badges and grants you access to sections such as the dev forums.

      Your website registration and forum login system are terrible. I don't say that lightly.

      I can't register on your forum because I'm already registered on the backer portal.

      Trying to reset a password directs me to the website which will let me create an account there and show me all their browser game products, but the password I create there still won't let me access the forums.

      I've been around this loop at least a half dozen times trying to work out some kind of solution. It's very, very frustrating.

      Linzi sounds like a fun companion....but there's one problem. Her name. Considering that the Pathfinder iconic druid is named Lini, and is a gnome, another Small sized race, I'd suggest changing Linzi's name so it's not one letter different.

      I suspect Linzi is going to spend a good amount of time in my party. Had trouble voting (not from mobile), but got cleared up in a minute after asking for help in the thread.

    8. Berserkerkitten on

      One more thing - if you *have* transferred your pledge and you still cannot vote, are you using a mobile device? Some users have reported that the poll does not work on mobile devices, so please try again using your PC. If it's still not working, let me know in the thread and I'll have a look!

    9. Berserkerkitten on

      Hey guys! Any of you who still need help with their pledge transfers and are emailing us about it (as decribed in the update), please give us a day to get back to you. We're trying to get you all set up ASAP. :)
