There are just a few more iconic characters left to bring into Pathfinder Society. Alain has held up the process by demanding we make his character sheet *perfect*.
Over the past several weeks, the design team and other authors have been introducing us to the new Pathfinder RPG Occult Adventures iconic characters and sharing some of the changes incorporated since the playtest in late 2014. Subscribers have already begun receiving PDF copies of the new book, which we'll have added to the Additional Resources in time for Gen Con 2015 in just over a week.
Much as we did with the Advanced Class Guide for Gen Con last year, we have also prepared 1st-, 4th-, and 7th-level pregenerated characters for use in the Pathfinder Society Organized Play campaign for Occult Adventures. These include all of the necessary rules needed to play the character, down to the abridged spell descriptions and class ability explanations. One of the unique challenges in designing these characters was the sheer versatility of them—especially in the case of the occultist, whose base statistics can change depending on how he allocates his mental focus. As a result, we presented those characters with a recommended distribution of points, and we're sure that a player who wants to shuffle those around can add to and subtract from a few modifiers if necessary.
