A Truly Epic Challenge

I check the messageboards with considerable frequency, even when I'm working on the considerable number of scenarios and other amazing adventures to debut at PaizoCon and Gen Con. What I see is that many people enjoy the challenge that Season 4 presents with some finding it a little tough and a minority claiming that it still isn't hard enough. Balancing encounters to present a respectable challenge without being unbeatable for a typical group is always on my mind as I outline, assign, and develop scenarios, but I can respect that there are players out there who want to face ever-stronger foes.

When a Faction Turns Out the Lights

Ever since we divulged which factions would disappear, the forums have been humming with speculation, questions, and clarifications about exactly how the whole faction retirement process will work. In brief overview, we are removing two factions from the available options for Pathfinder Society Organized Play. These factions are not necessarily disappearing from the face of Golarion, but for a variety of reasons they are withdrawing their direct involvement in the Pathfinder Society. Two new scenarios, #4-21 Way of the Kirin and #4-23 Rivalry's End, allow Lantern Lodge and Shadow Lodge faction PCs respectively the opportunity to play through their factions' conclusions. Of course, anyone can play these scenarios, but there's a special something waiting for members of the above factions. On August 14th, whether a person has played the scenarios or not, the two factions will be removed, and all existing Lantern Lodge and Shadow Lodge characters will have to switch factions.

Have Some Art With Your Hotdogs!

I'm not in the office today, and neither is anyone else at Paizo. And any of you in the USA also shouldn't be. Because today is a holiday! But that doesn't mean you can't get a glimpse at what's coming in this month's Pathfinder Society Scenarios—The Halls of Dwarven Lore and Way of the Kirin—which are set to release later this week. Enjoy the art, and don't spend too much time in the sun. Happy Memorial Day!

The Future of Pathfinder Society Organized Play, Part VII: Introducing the Year of the Ruby Phoenix

... The Future of Pathfinder Society Organized Play, Part VII: Introducing the Year of the Ruby Phoenix Monday, May 2, 2011In August 2010, Pathfinder Society Organized Play entered the Year of the Shadow Lodge, and the ongoing conflict with this separatist splinter group within the Pathfinder Society has been a consistent plot element in many of the season's scenarios.

New Year's Resolution: Recycle Less!

... New Year's Resolution: Recycle Less! Monday, January 24, 2011With the advent of a new calendar year, we here on the Pathfinder Society Organized Play creative team have, like so many others during this season, made a New Year's resolution. No, it's not that we'll eat less junk food, nor is it that we'll exercise more (we are gamers, after all). It's actually something I expect some readers may be upset to hear: we're making an effort to recycle less. ... Use recycled art, I mean. ......

All three scenarios in the unofficial series remain among the most popular scenarios to date, and even two and a half years later, Nicolas Logue's Mists of Mwangi is not only highly reviewed, but a bestseller in the line, and one of the most frequently reported scenarios of all time. Though the structure...

... Pathfinder Society: Looking to the Future Thursday, October 8, 2009The most frequent request I get from players, GMs, and convention coordinators is, What scenarios will be out by [date]?
