Some bugs fixed, some font changed, and to cap it off for the night, Archetypes are online! Each Class has a new link for available Archetypes in their submenu.

Pushed up a new update to the Spells area which should allow everyone to see loading times vastly reduced on that portion of my site. I’ve well been aware of the long loading times for class areas on the Pathfinder side of Spells. For comparison, the Wizard area on the Pathfinder side can take 20-30 seconds* to load, which is atrocious. The Technomancer and Mystic pages, however, now load in 1-3 seconds*.

Granted, Pathfinder has a lot more data, but when I bring these changes over to the PRD I hope it reduces those painful load times down to the 5 or less second range. For the curious, individual spells on both sides of the fence are already good, at ~1 second*, it’s the class sections for Spells I’ve been focused on improving.

*Speeds may vary depending on your ISP

Also in the coming weeks (that I forgot to mention below): Archetypes and the Search area.
Known Bug: Links for some Spells in the Sources area are broken. Fix coming soon.

The Starfinder version of the Archives of Nethys is now online - ! Additionally, I’ve added a new hyperlink for the Pathfinder version of the Archives - - the older URL will continue to be active and eventually just forward to the new URL, but I’ll always keep the domain to preserve old links.

Now, some notes about the Starfinder site - it’s not quite done. I severely underestimated the scope of changes I was in for when I planned my time to make the change, and I’ve already pushed it back a week or so from my desired launch date. As it is, there’s a few features that are still missing but should be online within the next week or two, including:
- Finishing the Sources section. Presently, the Sources area (only the Core book thus far) is limited in what types of mechanics it lists. All of the mechanics that I support will be added, as they are found on the Pathfinder side of things.
- Adding the Equipment/Vehicles sections. All of the data is in my database, but I didn’t have time this weekend to build the actual pages to display said data. I got all the other pages (about 75% of the total) online over a few days, so I don’t expect this additional contact to take long.
- Optimizing the Spells area. I got the different Class displays for Spells the way I want it, but I need to change a few things to speed up the individual Spell loads.
- More hyperlinks! (especially with the Class Builds area)

As for what’s available - Classes, Feats, Races, Skills, Spells, and Themes are done and all online. So there’s still a decent amount of content for everyone to read through while I get the rest online! :)

As always, thank you for the continued support of the Archives. I’ll be updating the Pathfinder side this coming weekend, which includes the completed Book of the Damned! If you see any issues (on either side of the fence), then shoot me an email ( to let me know!

(ALSO, no I'm not set on the font and color schemes - shoot me suggestions if you have them, but those are likely to change)
