Paizo Announces Starfinder Society Organized Play Program

New Starfinder Society Roleplaying Guild Takes Players to the Stars with New Adventures, Starship Combat, and More

Paizo Inc., publisher of the award-winning Pathfinder Roleplaying Game and Pathfinder Adventure Card Game, reveals today the first details of the new forthcoming Starfinder Society Roleplaying Guild, which will launch in tandem with the highly anticipated new science fantasy Starfinder Roleplaying Game at Gen Con in August 2017.

Starfinder Society will be a brand new global, cooperative roleplaying campaign with its own quests, scenarios, rules, documentation and characters. The team behind Starfinder Society will be a familiar one to gamers already playing in the Pathfinder Society. Organized Play Coordinator Tonya Woldridge leads the team, with John Compton taking on the role of Lead Developer of both the Pathfinder and Starfinder organized play programs. Thurston Hillman joins the team as Starfinder Society Developer. Hillman has been a part of Pathfinder Society since Season 1 when he authored Pathfinder Society Scenario #55:The Infernal Vault. The volunteer team of Venture-Officers will also remain the same for both campaigns.

Tonya Woldridge, Organized Play Coordinator, says "I enjoy working on Pathfinder Society with the team and look forward to adding Thurston's creativity to the mix. The storyline for Season 1 is absolutely fantastic, and we are already talking about our vision for Season 2."

Starfinder Society Roleplaying Guild will launch at Gen Con (August 17, 2017) with three scenarios, one special event for pre-generated characters, and one quest pack, with subsequent monthly scenarios for players worldwide thereafter.

Set thousands of years in Pathfinder's future, the Starfinder RPG will be a stand-alone science fantasy game evolved from the Pathfinder RPG rules in which players take on the role of a rag-tag starship crew exploring the countless mysteries of a weird universe. Starfinder is also designed to integrate easily with the Pathfinder RPG, allowing players of either game to port over monsters, items, and adventures with a minimal conversion effort.

"From the very moment we announced the Starfinder RPG, players demanded a new organized play campaign to support the game," says Paizo Publisher and Chief Creative Officer Erik Mona. "We're thrilled to make the campaign a reality, and look forward to exciting adventures amid the stars for years to come!"
