Like I said in a different thread where the comment got lost, and while it is probably too late for this, I think it would have been better to have waited til all of Season 2 was out and then retire all of Season 0 at one time. Then go through all of them and convert the ones worth converting and un-retire the converted ones or re-introduce them as part of Season 3.

That ship has sailed, unfortunately. We should have the first wave of converted scenarios available within the coming month, though getting them laid out and edited takes a backseat to new material with real deadlines.

Kudos for all you Paizo employees for announcing retirements well in advance so those that want to play the scenarios for credit can.

I know this might have been brought up before, but I will ask anyway -- is there a plan to retire Pathfinder scenarios (the ones written to Pathfinder RPG rules or converted to them later) after a certain amount of time? I ask because another living campaign from the past had 'retirement conventions' near the end of each year so that people who hadn't played the expiring scenarios could play them. I believe I attended 3 of these events and they were invariably a lot of fun. I understand why you want to keep scenarios you've developed and paid the 'overhead cost' for 'on the shelf' for as long as you have a reasonable amount of paying customers. I guess as devil's advocate against never retiring them, I could say that Paizo might get a nice sales bump for retiring scenarios if you did have a regular retirement time each year.

I'm a big Grandmater Touch fan and I like that he keep reappearing. It's a nice touchstone for players that haven't played together.

I think Grandmaster Touch would cause a few legal issues for the Paizo squad. Grandmaster Torch, however, just had a bad accident.

This was true when they announced two at a time. Five at a time was a bit much.

Ugn, relied on spell check, and not actually reading my message.

This is one of those times where you just sit back and enjoy the unintentional humor.

Black Waters is being un-retired, you might want to adjust the listing :)

It was never retired, as the governor called just as it was being strapped into the chair. I'm editing the OP now.

Thanks for the save, Gov'ner!

Is there any place where I can find the reasons for retirement? It doesn't have to be detailed and I don't "need" it, I'm just very curious.

Something like "#99 Fuzzy Bunnies of Time Lords (too confusing for a D&D game)"

We've asked for this before and have received a resounding "no" from the powers that be.

I think the problem is that as soon as you give a reason, it looks like you're opening the subject up for debate.
