Those of you excited for a campaign filled with strange shenanigans have no doubt been paying attention to the Gatewalkers Adventure Path.

If you’re planning to GM this campaign, you’re probably eagerly awaiting the first volume to hit your local game store’s shelves so you can get to prepping.

Gardens of Plenty

Nixret sighed as she entered the expansive aviary, and immediately cringed at the cacophony of bird calls assaulting her pounding head. She—a kobold with mottled emerald and jade scales, dressed in the plain grays of a Pathfinder initiate—stood before one of the Scrolls’ many gardens of wonder, this one devoted to the production of feather tokens. Her task this morning, much to her dismay, was to tend to it. On her own.

Paizo Announces System-Neutral Open RPG License

For the last several weeks, as rumors of Wizards of the Coast’s new version of the Open Game License began circulating among publishers and on social media, gamers across the world have been asking what Paizo plans to do in light of concerns regarding Wizards of the Coast’s rumored plan to de-authorize the existing OGL 1.0(a). We have been awaiting further information, hoping that Wizards would realize that, for more than 20 years, the OGL has been a mutually beneficial license which should not–and cannot–be revoked. While we continue to await an answer from Wizards, we strongly feel that Paizo can no longer delay making our own feelings about the importance of Open Gaming a part of the public discussion.

Another year has passed and Ilia Tamm, CEO of Arch Energy Consortium, has been unable to locate her wayward son. Now an extreme travel vlogger and a thrill-seeking social media influencer, Envar has been gallivanting across the galaxy, seeing the sights and stirring up trouble. Armed with knowledge of his travels, a team of Starfinders heads out to track down Envar and bring him home—or at least bring a message back to his mother!

The Abomination Arsenal: Part 1

Our first marathon is in the books, and it’s time to report out! We knew when we started this project that it wasn’t going to go down like a typical dungeon crawl—or megadungeon for that matter. Instead, this campaign shot off with an excessively violent bang (series of them, actually) that left a character dead and a level full of face-down mitflits. We’ve played a lot of dungeons over the years, but we’ve never riddled one with ricochet marks. In short: Gunslingers are a great time, everyone should try four!

Many Years Ago...

...I and Wes Schneider took over the big conference room at Paizo and began to work out what Pathfinder Adventure Path was going to do to follow up its first official campaign for the Pathfinder Roleplaying game. We knew we wanted to do a sandbox-based Adventure Path (in part because we were excited by the challenge, and in part because there was a lot of call and request for something like that from Pathfinder gamers at large), and by the end of an afternoon-suddenly-become-evening-without-us-noticing, we’d sketched out Kingmaker, the idea for building a kingdom, the grid-based settlement-construction concept, and the basic ideas for the region in which the campaign would take place. I went on to craft the outline for the Adventure Path and started hiring authors, while Wes focused on writing a detailed gazetteer for the Stolen Lands that would appear in the Guide to the River Kingdoms alongside the launch of Kingmaker itself.

Cook Up Some Impossible Lands Cuisine!

The Impossible Lands tell a tale of life adapting in the face of destructive hubris. No magical power has been able to restore the blighted fields of the country of Nex, after the necromancer Geb transformed them into rock. What little progress exists is there due to the long, hard toil of ghoran hands and mortal farmers' sweat. Raising livestock on what meager grains that can be coaxed from the fields is—even in the Impossible Lands—quite impossible. The region's food consists of scraggly native crops, imports from Katepesh, expensive goods from other planes, and magically polluted fish from the rivers and oceans. Most of these, visitors note, have a very distinctive aftertaste.

Paizo PDF Pricing Changes

For many years, Paizo has largely set PDF pricing as a percent of the full print MSRP.

Hello, all! I’m Logan Bonner, Pathfinder Lead Designer and the primary designer of the kineticist. Now that we’ve finished up the class playtest, I want to cover where we’re planning to go with the class. Many of these changes are based on your survey feedback, as well as common comments we witnessed monitoring the forums and social media. This took a while, because the playtest had a big turnout. We don’t usually share these numbers, but the kineticist got exactly 1,000 survey responses, and that was too fun to keep to ourselves! (There were fewer for the open response, as is typical.)

The Lost Omens Travel Guide has been out for a few weeks and we wanted to take a break from all our travels throughout the Inner Sea to highlight the authors who made the book possible. There’s been a lot of love for Travel Guide and we wanted to give these authors a chance to share their excitement for the book, as well as some information about themselves and their projects. If you’ve enjoyed these authors’ work, let them know in the comments below or by following them on social media!

The Abomination Arsenal

Order of the Amber Die here, back with our eighth project since 2014! In case you aren’t familiar with our work from past projects, we’ll give you the staccato version. We only play published adventures. We use the complete rules set. We’ve had the same GM since our founding: 1987. We like to push the envelope of tabletop roleplaying. We only play marathon sessions—days at a time. We’ll play on location. Our GM isn’t afraid to kill characters or TPK us; he’ll do it in front of the community, too. Imagine us like a roleplaying team, complete with a captain to help the players. We revere one d20 above all others, and that is the Amber Die. It doesn’t roll more 20s than it should, but it chains them when it does, and doubters have always been converted. After more than 150 adventures, we’ve even gotten rid of RPG absolutes: yeah, we’ll split the party.

Starfinder Bounties

Hello everyone!
Earlier this year we launched Starfinder Bounties, a line of short, PDF adventure products designed for 1st-level characters. Each bounty fills about an hour of play and can act as an easy introduction to the Starfinder Roleplaying game. Starfinder Bounties can be used as standalone adventures, strung together in any order as a series, or used as transitions and side quests in between longer adventures and campaigns. While bounties take place in specific areas, they can be used in any campaign setting. Each bounty is also sanctioned for play in our Starfinder Society Organized Play program as a repeatable adventure.

What a Long, Strange Trip It’s Been

I am officially announcing my retirement from the adventure game industry. After 35 years of making some of the most amazing games and getting to work with the most amazing people, it is time for me to step away and move on to the next chapter in my life. In January 2020, I was diagnosed with a very rare disease that, while not life-threatening, is debilitating, sapping me of much of my energy and making it hard to do my job. The pandemic allowed me to step back from the day-to-day operations of Paizo enough to help me feel comfortable making this life change at this time.
