Pathfinder is a game of many rules and lots of bookkeeping, both during and out of play. Each scenario or module awards a player with a chronicle sheet that serves as a trophy and evidence that the player has played a given scenario with one of their characters. At any time, a Game Master has the right to demand an audit of a player's character and, unless the player has all of their chronicle sheets in their posession, they may be barred from that game until they can provide evidence of their character's supposed achievements. This was the inspiration behind ETHChronicler. No longer would there be a risk of going to a gaming convention ready to play a few days of Pathfinder, only to find that a ruthless Game Master chose your character to audit on the day that you leave your chronicle binder in the hotel room. As an exploration into the concept of digital assets, EthChronciler will be a Pathfinder Society member's trophy room and book of record for themself and all of their characters achievements.
What it does
ETHChronicler creates and displays Pathfinder chronicle sheets as digital assets on Ethereum. A Game Master uses a GM token to digitally sign players' chronicle sheets, which are then stored on IPFS. If a new player joins an existing Pathfinder adventure, his character's entire history (experience, gold, etc) can be traced back digitally and verified through IPFS and Ethereum. This ensures the integrity and accuracy of a new player's stats.
