We are looking for a logo for Pathfinder Society Online that will
differentiate the online group and make it readily recognizable as the
The logo will primarily be used as the basis of the new website that
will be built for Online Play, but will also be used for such things
as event publications, email templates, et cetera. So it should be
scalable, mutable in theme, and preferably have some aspect of it that
can be used alone as a recognizable symbol of PFS online.
Obviously Pathfinder is a Fantasy Tabletop Role Playing Game, but we
would like to make the logo look "high-tech" in some way. Something
that says "online play".
The 2014-2015 season of PFS that is about to start in August is based
in a region of the Pathfinder world called Numeria
[http://pathfinder.wikia.com/wiki/Numeria], which is basically a
Fantasy realm that had a starship crash into it's land and has since
become a source of weird tech. (See the attached nano-bot imbued demon
image). So, some inspiration can be pulled from there.
Incorporation of the Season 6 symbol's basic design would be nice (see
attached circle logo). So additional inspiration can be taken from
The Font used by Paizo for the regular logo is a stylized Sabre
Regular font: http://www.fontbureau.com/fonts/Saber/ if that helps
Some suggested inspirations have also been Tron/Star Gate meets
Dungeons and Dragons; Dragonriders of Pern, and Dune. (Just think
fantasy meets high-tech.)
All that said, something that is too elaborate will probably not be
usable, so it need to be evocative but not too elaborate in design and
** Update: Standard RPG tropes like crossed swords, shields, dragons,
and that kind of stuff should be avoided. The focus should be on the
wording "Pathfinder Society Online" and the digital elements concept.
The logo should also flow well and not be disjointed or "blocky". **
