Can next season be focused on the Great Old Ones and have a very lovecraftian lore behind it? That would be pretty awesome!

Possibly make Yaddithian as a legal character option during this time?

I love Elder Mythos lore and I'd love to expand on it by fighting cults, deranged mad scientists who follow the elder gods and the like.

Paizo only recently finished the excellent Strange Aeons Adventure Path under Adam Daigle's direction. While there's certainly more Lovecraftian adventure potential out there, I'm inclined to give Strange Aeons time to shine rather than step on its thematic toes—at least when it comes to establishing a season-long story arc. If you like the elder mythos concepts, there are also several Season 7 adventures that might intrigue you.

With PaizoCon drawing ever closer, we're less than two weeks away from announcing what Season 9 will be about! Be sure to attend the PaizoCon Preview Banquet and the Pathfinder Society Q&A to learn all about it (and ask whatever questions you like).

Season 7 adventures referenced:

#7–20: First Taste of Eternity
#7–26: All the Gods Beyond
#7–98: Serpents' Ire

Not a stupid question at all. New Seasons for PFS generally kick off at GenCon.

Expect the same to be true this year, too.


So is it different some years?

More accurately, "The new season has always begun at Gen Con, at least as far back as I was participating (Season 1) and keeping track of when a new season began (Season 3). It will almost certainly continue to be the case for Pathfinder Society Roleplaying Guild in the future, but I am cautious about using absolute language when speaking about the distant future."


Thanks John. Thanks Preston.

I enjoy every season for its own reasons, but I've been speculating for a few months that the next season will be more human-/faction- centric. I have a feeling the trepidatious position of several of our inner sea nations is going to escalate. Maybe war. Maybe intrigue. But there are opportunities for every faction, even if some might argue that Sovereign Court will get the bulk of the faction missions.

We break the opal - Ringo is happy and plans are set to find and break open the other three because the society can.

Season 9: Year of the Sharknado...

The elemental lords (evil flavored) mount a mass assault on the material plane and start causing havok to stop anyone who thinks gem breaking is a good idea! Duchess is the big bad and starts by opening a hole to the plane of air over The grand lodge and chaos begins...

Given that the next season starts in a few short months I rather expect the outline has already been around for quite some time. You might have better luck asking for it to br brought into season 10 or possibly 11.

That amused me far more than it should have. And now I have Reba stuck in my head.

Shadow Lodge ***

Year of the Torch, where Grandmaster Torch's grand plan comes to fruition and there are many bath scenes.

Year of the BBEG, wait there are always people lining up to be bbegs.

Year of all sequals?

Year of the Pirate?

Year of the scenarios without seldom used rules sets?
