Just curious as to what's been announced at Paizocon this year! Spill the beans, please!

The next AP following "Shattered Star" is titled "Reign of Winter", and is a Baba Yaga-themed multi-planet exploration adventure involving Baba Yaga's hut.

It sounds ridiculous, and awesome.


ooh multi-planet, here we come, Spelljammer!

Baba Yaga *and* planet-hopping?

Wow, that's a peanut-butter-in-my-chocolate sort of mash-up...

Thank Sivanah it doesn't have a name with a bunch of S's in it. Between Skull and Shackles and Shattered Star and Serpent's Skull, I'm a bit S'd out.

Got to love ANYTHING with Baba-Yaga in it. Ohhh dang now I might have to wait yet ANOTHER 6 months for this "Reign of Winter" to come out now. Dang it!! Do I start Shattered Star first or do I wait and start Reign of Winter. But I still have to complete the second half of book 5 and book 6 of Carrion Crown first. The rate they are going it might take six months hehe. :)

JJ hinted to Justin that he will be getting one of Mythic and an Irrisen AP, and in the AP seminar they apparently commented that Reign of Winter doesn't truly count as an Irrisen AP as only 1.5 modules are there...

Thanks for the replies. I like the sound of those APs. Keep the info coming!
Facts only, not rumours, please! ;-)

Baba Yaga and planet hoping!!!

This blog (link) had very good info on PaizoCon / GenCon in the past, and it seems like it's going to repeat this in 2012.


Pathfinder Adventure Path, Campaign Setting, Companion, Modules, Roleplaying Game Subscriber

"Rasputin must die", I hope it is the same Rasputin from Earth's history but with actual magical powers, maybe as a Sorcerer or Oracle.

I should point out that no one has said that it isn't an Irrisen AP as far as I know. However, since about as much of this one occurs in Irrisen as Jade Regent did in the Lands of the Linnorm Kings, and given JJs tendencies to mess with my questions. I say Mythic level rules are being announced in about 7 hours.

Let us know if it is mythic rules. That will be awesome!!!!

Liberty's Edge Contributor, RPG Superstar 2012

At the Adventure Path panel, they were pretty clear about the Baba Yaga AP not being an Irrisen AP. One and a half of the adventure path modules take place in Irrisen, so they don't consider it an Irrisen AP.


Pathfinder Adventure Path, Campaign Setting, Companion, Modules, Roleplaying Game Subscriber

I know that the preview banquit is tonight but was there anything else of interest?

I think there was a monster building seminar and maybe some world building stuff.

The Exchange

I hope Rasputin Must Die involves the actual Rasputin from actual Earth. Probably not going down, but wouldn't that be cool?!


Ultimate Campaigns in Spring 2013! Great!

You don't have to sign up for facebook or anything. You can just read the announcements as they post them.

Anyway, something about a virtual table top is the last one.

Paizo reinvents the virtual tabletop to be played directly on Paizo.com!

Uses Paizo's high, max resolution maps, handouts and everything you need to run our APs. Makes everything easy to connect with people and get playing. As long as you can get to Paizo.com you can play!

Looks like I over thought it.

There is apparently a bit of a delay built into the live blogging. Next year I'll ask Gary to, at least for the banquet, post immediately. I was typing as furiously as possible on my iPhone and trying to get all the details for everyone.

So, no Mythic Rules then?

Not yet, but the Gencon book wasn't announced, and if we were going to get it, it would be for Gencon

Also Ultimate Campaigns doesn't sound like it'd need much if any public playtesting, which frees up time to do a significant Playtest if it is a major expansion like Mythic


Pathfinder Adventure Path, Campaign Setting, Companion, Modules, Roleplaying Game Subscriber

Kind of disapointed.

The next AP sounds interesting to me.

Ultimate Campaign, I am not sold on this one plus I wish they would stop using "Ultimate" for these books because so far they are always the disapointing ones.

I wasn't expecting mythic rules yet besides I would like rules for Psionics before we go "epic".

So the Baba Yaga AP and Ultimate Campaign are the only new anouncements then?


Pathfinder Adventure Path, Roleplaying Game Subscriber

@Dragon78: From reading the above linked posts, I'd say the GameSpace announcement is new and exciting! I'm fairly sure there's a Paizo Blog thread for it as well...

[EDIT]: Here's the link to the Gamespace announcement, and Gary Teter posts actual rundown of announcement:

I am talking about physical products, this sounds more like a service.

Good point, can we have Advanced Campaigns instead? The Advanced books have been much more satisfying than the Ultimate books.

I think it has been said that Paizo won't do psionics, but that this is something for 3PP to accomplish.


Pathfinder Adventure Path Charter Subscriber; Pathfinder Campaign Setting, Companion, Modules, Roleplaying Game Subscriber

I was hoping for mythic/epic too.

Maybe GenCon....

Liberty's Edge

They could call it "Ultimate Advanced Gouda Cheese", and if it's a good book, it's a good book. If it's a bad book, it's a bad book.

Sovereign Court

Where is the book Mythic level?


Pathfinder Adventure Path, Campaign Setting, Companion, Roleplaying Game Subscriber

So no new campaign setting or player's guide books revealed?

+1 for mythic book

Campaign Setting wasn't touched on a great deal, however, the Player Companion line has had a huge revamp and is now going monthly!


Pathfinder Adventure Path, Campaign Setting, Companion, Modules, Roleplaying Game Subscriber

Well HangarFlying it doesn't mean I will stop asking for official Pathfinder Psionics.


Overall I'm much more excited about the products announced this year. It appears they're slowing down on the new feat/race/class/spell books, which I consider to be a big positive. The NPC codex is particularly promising, sticking as it does to the Core Rulebook. I'll be picking that up, and probably Ultimate Campaign as well. The gamespace sounds amazing, and I'm really looking forward to Shattered Star. Things are really looking up... :)


Pathfinder Adventure Path, Campaign Setting, Companion, Modules, Roleplaying Game Subscriber

The big sellers for me are the hardcover Bestiaries, so this year and the beggining of next are kinda disapointing.


Pathfinder Battles Case Subscriber; Pathfinder Deluxe Comics Subscriber; Pathfinder Card Game, Roleplaying Game Subscriber

I’m excited to hear about the next PF Battles set and glad to hear the next set will be a good size (I like bigger sets).

But I am a bit leery on the set being attached to an AP again. Is this going to be a normal occurrence now? Each PF battles set will go along with the current AP?

I don’t have an issue with it as long as we get all the monsters/NPCs/classes that are in all the books, and not too many unique minis you would find only in the Shattered Star.

Paizo Employee Publisher, Chief Creative Officer

Releasing the Shattered Star Pathfinder Battles miniatures more or less concurrently with the Adventure Path itself is an experiment. While there are a lot of great things about it (hey, minis for the AP you're playing RIGHT NOW!) it also involves a TON of coordination and lots of decisions must be made far, far earlier than we have traditionally made them. So we'll have to see if this is a trend or not.

It's certainly the current plan that some sets will NOT tie into the Adventure Paths, so if you're not a huge fan of that plan, you should be OK with how things develop over the next few sets. Even for the AP-related sets, a significant number of the figures will be "rank and file" monsters from the Bestiaries, rather than specific NPCs. And as for the specific NPCs, in many cases these will easily double as player character miniatures, which means we probably WON'T do a bunch of generic "human barbarians" and what-not, because the NPC figures will cover these niches quite nicely.


Pathfinder Battles Case Subscriber; Pathfinder Deluxe Comics Subscriber; Pathfinder Card Game, Roleplaying Game Subscriber

That’s great to hear, thanks Erik!

And I can live with the NPCs substituting the ‘generic’ human barbarians, although the only request I would make is could we have more than one across multiple sets? So you aren’t using the same ‘human barbarian’ over and over, and especially if you have one in a party.

And that request would apply for other classes, as well.

Honestly, what I would love to see more of is nobles, farmers (peasants) or even children. We use all of them often enough during our sessions.

This is what I'd like to see. Maybe a mini set to go with the NPC hardcover? We have a ton of minis but it is still very hard to find one that matches closely with whatever monster/bad guys we're fighting at the time. The minis we treasure most dearly are the ones we use as PC's. Having an NPC set would be awesome because of the ability to use those as PC minis.
