Please Welcome Our New Pathfinder Society Developer!

Friday, February 22, 2013

Today is an exciting day for Pathfinder Society Organized Play. Pathfinder Society has been given a new developer who will be dedicated solely to helping me strengthen and grow organized play. John Compton comes to Paizo from Atlanta, GA. This is not the first time I have worked with John. When I was the acting Venture-Captain in Atlanta, John was one of my store liaisons. The store where he helped coordinate, along with current Georgia co-Venture-Captains Kyle and Nani Pratt, has been the fastest-growing store and currently has the largest regular player base in Georgia.

John has as much passion about improving Pathfinder Society as I do. He brings some awesome ideas with him and I think all of you will be happy with the results. John will introduce himself and some of his goals in the Pathfinder Society blog post scheduled for March 4. Until then, I am sure he will have his hands full catching up with the plans we have already put into motion for the future of Pathfinder Society. Please join me in welcoming him to Paizo Publishing!

After meeting John at PaizoCon 2012 in the Gamemastery 101 workshop, I'm glad to see he's moving up in the world!

Look forward to seeing how to make something so good even better, John!

Gratz John!

w00t! Congrats to John!

I got the chance to meet the inestimable Mr. Compton during PaizoCon's GM101 sessions last year, and I'm certain that Atlanta's loss is PFS' gain.


Congratulations! I'm so excited for you...and I'm even more excited about what amazing eccentric creative and fantastic things you'll bring to the campaign!

Absolutely fantastic! It's always great to see fans moving into the company!
Welcome, and I can't wait to see how much good you do for PFS!

I, for one, welcome our new ant overlords.


This is awesome as we are going to be getting a bit of John in every PFS scenario, but we will miss him dearly in GA.

Everyone, keep your eye out for PFS Scenario #4-20 coming later this year for some John Compton goodness!

Not just a fan. I awarded him with his 5th GM star publicly at Gen Con last year. So, he is a super fan and GM!

By the way, he came over to my place for dinner last night and we chatted about the job and future of PFS for 3.5 hours. The campaign is in for a treat with some of his ideas and a ton of enthusiasm!


*golf clap*

So how long until the Asst. Coordinator position opens up that I can happily fill?


Congratulations, John!

More PFS resources = WINNING!


Welcome to the post. Now ban summoners! :]

Who said anything about me getting a new position? My title remains Developer and I'll continue working on the Pathfinder Society line as I have for the last 2-1/2 years. Having John on board will mean that the campaign will have a wider bandwidth on which to operate, and I'll have the ability to handle some of the other, non-Pathfinder Society responsibilities I have.

Congratulations, John.

And congratulations and thanks, too, to Mark, who has put in a lot of hours bringing PFS up to the level of development quality it has now. I remember the jumble of a job he took over, and I hope he continues on as a Paizo developer.

EDIT: Ninja'ed by the man hisself.

I am very pleased that the money I throw at Paizo results in new hires. Giving solid folks a decent job is what every company should be proud of.

Congratulations John!!! I look forward to seeing what is ahead for the campaign. Mark, Mike, and the rest of the community; my thanks goes out to you for helping me to enjoy a great organized campaign. From the creation of my first PFS character to my first time running at a convention and beyond, without the support here I would probably still be a player. I hope to get the chance to meet a lot of you at Paizocon this year and pass on this thanks personally.

John, congratulations one again on your new role!!!

This is great news! John is the best GM I have ever played with and if he brings that enthusiasm to PFS as a whole, then we are all in for some excitement!

Congratulations. I am excited to see what you have in store for us.

You think you dread Season 5 now? Just wait! Just. You. Wait.


I'd wager anything that anyone who isn't completely over-the-moon about this announcement hasn't ever met John Compton. I've played in games that John has GMed as well as alongside him as a fellow player, and I can say without the slightest hesitation that there is likely no more perfect candidate for this sort of role than him.

I congratulate John and look forward to all of the awesome things that he'll bring to everyone's gaming tables in the future.
