OPC Log—11 Gozren 4716

This weekend volunteers and Paizo staff came together to run Pathfinder Society events in the Sheraton Grand Ballroom. Except for the early morning hours, we consistently filled our tables and worked hard to get games going quickly. Some of our attendees enjoyed the Adventure Card Game so much they came back the next day to play through the Season of the Runelords Adventure 1. Several other groups went directly from our tables to on-site retailers and bought the Rise of the Runelords Base Set with the intent to start playing back home.

OPC Log—8 Pharast 4716

Last Friday marked two important occasions for many gamers—International GM's Day and the anniversary of the passing of game designer Gary Gygax. I began to reflect on my first games and how much they shaped my gaming experience, where I thought about the experiences that encourage players to return to the table. I would love to hear of your first encounters with the world of gaming and what made them so memorable—leave your stories in the comments!

OPC Log—8 Calistril 4716

I spent the past five days in Fort Wayne, Indiana, attending the Winter Fantasy Convention hosted by Baldman Games. What a blast! With a small but dedicated Pathfinder presence, we played lots, laughed lots, and rolled quite a few dice. I enjoyed introducing new players to the Pathfinder Society.

Vote for Your Favorite Pathfinder Society Mini!

A few weeks ago, I announced the first in a series of competitions aimed toward Pathfinder Society members. The response illustrates the fantastic talents our players possess. While their creations graced tables, it took being in the right place at the right time to admire them. On that note, thank you to the artists for sharing your creations. Submitting items for public perusal can be daunting and I appreciate your willingness to let us look.

With just ten days left in 2015, this will be my last blog for the year. Next week John will give us some insight on our upcoming scenarios, and then it's on to the new year. Last week, I hinted that you should get out your paintbrushes and arm your glue guns—I hope you did, as I am pleased to announce the first in a series of Pathfinder Society contests!

Announcing RPG Superstar Season 9!

Once again, we'll be doing things a little differently for RPG Superstar. First, as you may have guessed, the next contest is happening MUCH earlier in the calendar year than before. This time we are starting the Open Call round next Friday, August 7th. We'll run five rounds total to find our winner, who will be announced October 30th. There are lots of reasons for the scheduling changes, not the least of which is that fans, potential contestants, and judges can't participate when we hold it over the holidays.

The Final Four!

Behold, our four finalists! They have navigated the surprise of creating a new category of magic item, diligently labored to create stand-alone maps, wrought creatures of the Darklands, and braved the travails of creating new and interesting encounters! Hundreds began this exhausting and arduous path, and now four have proven themselves the best of the year. As a benefit of being among the last group of finalists, each of our final four will have the opportunity to write for Paizo—Pathfinder Society Scenarios for the three runners-up, and an adventure for our Pathfinder Modules line for this year's RPG Superstar.

Announcing RPG Superstar 2015's Top 8!

This is an important milestone for the RPG Superstar contest. Making it to the Top 8 is a major achievement. The quality at this point is so high we actually disallow the Top 8 from entering future contests. These contestants have overcome some of the most difficult and unexpected challenges we've ever had in this contest, and for three rounds now have overcome everything we've thrown at them. My sincere congratulations to the Top 8, listed here with their winning monster entries.

These competitors have gone through some of the toughest challenges we've ever had in this contest, including having the first round undergo a major rules change with no advance warning, making a full-page map in just three days, and now having to create a Bestiary-style Golarion monster native to Nar-Voth, including a physical description, stat block, and general monster description, in 550 to 600 words.

6th Annual Gen Con Costume Contest Voting!

Over the course of the last two weeks most of the staff have trickled back into the offices from Gen Con, sharing tales of great times, great people, and in some cases also sharing the con crud. As a cosplayer myself some of my favorite things to hear back from the other staff are about the cosplayers they met at the convention. Don't hesitate in knowing that we love the work you do as much as you love ours. Your costumes this year were incredible, and you'd be proud to hear just how excited some of the Paizo staff were when talking about meeting you.

Tell Me About My Characters

A few weeks ago we ran a contest, in which people competed to stat up characters from my Pathfinder Tales fiction. Choosing only three favorites from these entries was incredibly hard. There wasn't a dog among them—no offense, Arni—and of course almost everyone who built an entry (or five) did something unique.
