Organized Play Scenario Previews

This month, we’re releasing the exciting continuations of two Year 3 series, Frozen Ambitions and The Vast Experiment. Don’t worry if you haven’t found a table for the others in the series yet, as they can be played in any order. Frozen Ambitions: The Preluria Connection by Tineke Bolleman sends the PCs to Near Space, where they take on a contract job for a mysterious organization and find themselves caught up in mercenary intrigue, seedy science, and a high-octane vehicle chase! Next up, The Vast Experiment: Fast Choices by our very own Mike Kimmel takes the Starfinders to Verces, where they take part in a bit of corporate espionage and get the chance to pick the manufacturer for the Society’s next generation of ships!

No-Prep Character: Eleukas

As The Shroud of Four Silences, the new serialized Pathfinder novella from Liane Merciel, comes to a close, we’re presenting NPC stat blocks for all four of the main protagonists, allowing you to incorporate them into your ongoing campaigns. Whether they serve as allies, competitive rivals, or even replacement player characters, take these new heroes and make them your own. We look forward to seeing what challenges face them beyond the story’s conclusion next week.

A Light in the Fog: Abomination Vaults Player's Guide

When the mysterious lighthouse called Gauntlight glows with baleful light, the people of Otari suspect that it’s an ominous prelude to sinister events. Heroes must explore the ruins around the lighthouse and delve into the dungeon levels below. Hideous monsters, deadly traps, and vengeful ghosts all await the heroes who dare to enter the sprawling megadungeon called the Abomination Vaults!

GM's Toolkit: Secret Keeper's Mask

Over the last few months, we’ve provided a number of new mechanics in the blog to give Game Masters running Otari-based campaigns a few more tricks to add flavor to the region based on the exploits of the heroes in Liane Merciel’s ongoing novella, The Shroud of Four Silences. We’re getting to the end of that tale, with Chapter 11 going out to our mailing list this week. To avoid spoilers, we’re hiding this week’s GM’s Toolkit entry below—keeping it secret, if you will—for only those who know the true villains at the heart of the story or who don’t mind learning it before reading it for themselves.

Darklands Rising: From the Vaults

This week, we conclude our preview of the forthcoming Pathfinder Battles: Darklands Rising set of prepainted plastic miniatures from our partners at WizKids. Before we get into looking at the final figures in the set, I wanted to provide an update on Darklands Rising’s release. Due to a number of logistical issues, some game distributors have not received their orders of Darklands Rising, so WizKids has pushed the release date back 2 weeks to February 3, 2021. This should give the remaining product time to make it to distributors and then to retail stores in time for everyone to have the same street date. We hope this won’t cause anyone any problems, and thank the community for your understanding.

Your Character, Your Dice, Your Way

We are very excited to be given the opportunity to partner with Paizo, and knew we had to try something new with it, though at that stage we were unsure what that would be. After we had met with the Paizo team for the first time, and the creative juices were flowing, the idea of doing something big for Pathfinder Second Edition kicked in. We had an interesting thought: what if you could truly, completely customize your dice to your character? Not only by selecting dice colors that match the color palette of your character but also unique glyphs to represent their class, their abilities, their weapons, and their choice of spells.

Now Playing: Fly Free or Die

A crew of scoundrels, rogues, and misfits finds it hard to survive in a galaxy where everyone has a price. Targeted by a crime boss and his army of enforcers, preyed upon by faceless mega-corporations, and hounded by rivals, the crew of the Free Trader Oliphaunt line up the big score that will at last make them rich beyond their wildest dreams. But when their many enemies join forces and the crew loses it all, they find out there are two things in the galaxy that can't be bought: freedom... and revenge. The Fly Free or Die Adventure Path has launched with Starfinder Adventure Path #34: We’re No Heroes!

Pathfinder Society Playtest Rules: Gunslinger and Inventor

Welcome to 2021! How about a playtest to start off with a bang? After not participating in the Pathfinder Secrets of Magic playtest and reading the feedback from our players and GMs, we put our heads together to come up with a way to engage our Organized Play community that worked within the Pathfinder Society framework. We settled on a model based on the Starfinder Society method that will allow our community to participate in the Pathfinder Guns & Gears playtest (see the announcement here). This framework works within established Society guidelines, doesn’t leave credit on unusable characters, and encourages players to get involved. We believe this method is flexible enough to use for future playtests and will add a section to the Guides to Organized Play to provide guidance to players and GMs.

A Caroling Horse (Of Course. Of Course.)

Happy holidays, one and all! Whether you're celebrating the season, stuck working, or enjoying business mandated days off, I don't think it's an exaggeration to say we could all use a bit of festive cheer this year. Winter traditions range from the sweet to the downright malevolent (check out Krampus in our upcoming Bestiary 3), but by far one of the strangest is the Welsh tradition of the Mari Lwyd. This spooky, shrouded creature has a horse's skull for a head. It shows up either during Christmas or the New Year—depending on how much the local church freaks out about its presence—and carols at the doorways to peoples' houses, demanding entrance using Welsh rhymes. Those who let the Mari Lwyd inside must offer the creature hospitality, usually in the form of alcohol and cheese. (Golarion scholars are still debating the absolute definition of “cheese”, but the general rule is that if you have to ask if something counts, it doesn't.)

The restless dead sometimes wander the world as skeletons or zombies, but necromancers are as innovative as they are evil. This trap consists of several corpses interred within the earthen walls and ceiling of a narrow passage. When living creatures enter the 5-foot-wide and 20-foot-long tunnel, the corpses animate and lunge from behind the dirt, their rotted limbs grasping and their maggot-ridden faces moaning.

Organized Play Scenario Prices

Beginning January 4, 2021, prices for all Pathfinder Society (second edition) and Starfinder Society scenarios, as well as the Pathfinder Bounties, will increase due to rising production costs. High-level scenarios (level range 7-10 and higher) received an additional increase due to the extra time and attention needed from authors/developers related to added complexity of play at higher levels. To help our community with budgeting costs, we plan to produce no more than one high-level scenario per month across both Pathfinder and Starfinder Society lines.

Redpitch Alchemy

A distinctively sharp and somewhat minty smell alerts travelers to the presence of redpitch pines, trees that have grown around Otari since before the town was founded. Redpitch wood isn’t much prized, as it catches fire dangerously quickly and burns fast, but its flammable sap is useful in many alchemical concoctions. Eager alchemists here often make volatile concoctions with redpitch pine sap, including incendiary bombs.

It’s been a while since I last previewed a set of Pathfinder Battles pre-painted plastic miniatures from WizKids, but I’m back for a year-end surprise.

No. No it wouldn’t. The more minis we can get, the sooner we can get them, the better!

Organized Play Monthly Update

In many ways, I’m relieved to see the home stretch of 2020 and that the new year lies just beyond the horizon. With Covid, murder hornets, wildfires, protests, elections, and beloved icons passing, this year packed more into it than I’d expect in a decade. I felt the lack of conventions the most. You, our community, mean the world to me and it physically hurt not to get to meet up with you and get to chat about gaming, organized play, and maybe even our favorite television shows (though I have a great store of talking points now!). As vaccine availability allows us to reopen, I urge everyone to not rush back into games spaces, but to do so responsibility in an effort to keep our communities safe! We will be back together again soon, but only by being careful can we all be together again.

This week on our series of Otari-themed blogs, we’re looking at Otari’s primary industry: logging. While none of the pre-written Otari campaigns (the Pathfinder Beginner Box, Pathfinder Adventure: Troubles in Otari, or the forthcoming Abomination Vaults Adventure Path) assume the player characters are loggers, the industry’s impact on the region is unmistakable. While exploring the woodlands around the town, player characters or GMs may wish to add a bit of local flair with the following rules for logger marks. Readers of the ongoing novella, The Shroud of Four Silences, will recognize these marks when they get to this week’s chapter, entitled “The Redpitch Grove.” What signs will Eleukas, Wendlyn, and Lisavet find, and what dangers will they help the party avaoid (or lead the party toward, instead)?

Pathfinder Society November Previews

Marcus Farabellus strides into the common room, looks around at the handful of agents lounging on the benches, then points his finger at several individuals in quick succession. “Belker, Nepsin, Hoger, Klar, Tennit, Greensward.” Grab your kits and head to Valsin’s office. He’s got a task for you over at the Blakros Museum. Farabellus gives them a friendly smile and nods, then turns sharply on his heel and leaves the room, ignoring the uproar his announcement generates.

Starfinder Society November Previews

“You have sixty seconds to eject your stolen cargo before my gunners blast you out of the sky,” Brigadier Tassada Kor barks into the comms, watching the battle from her position on the bridge. The decorated vesk officer commands the dreadnought Talon’s Razor, crewed by 435 stalwart souls loyal to the Veskarium, and she did not tolerate pirates in her corner of space. The targets of her ire, three smaller ships darting and wheeling in the viewport in front of her, spit lasers as they arced close before speeding out of range of her vessel’s firing arcs. The Razor’s hull shakes violently, sparks raining into the black as enemy weapons slam into the shields. Tenacious opponents, Tassada admired them for it, but their insolence must end. When Tassada directed her crew to the outskirts of Veskarium space to investigate reports of piracy, she unintentionally kicked a hornets’ nest of smugglers and their mercenary escorts. The vessels in her crosshairs now were the last of the ragtag armada challenging the Talon’s Razor.

Core Rulebook 2nd Printing Errata

With the Pathfinder Core Rulebook 2nd printing beginning to arrive, we’ve published a list of errata found by Paizo staff and fans alike. Many thanks to those of you from paizo.com and other fan communities who helped find potential errata.

Order of the Amber Die: The Slithering Salve Part 1

In case you're new to our projects or what Order of the Amber Die is all about, here's a quick rundown: We have been dedicated to pushing the envelope of tabletop role-playing since 1987. After more than five years on the Paizo blog, including three full Adventure Paths and the Pathfinder Playtest, we were looking for a new project, and our first one in Pathfinder 2nd Edition no less. We had never presented anything from Paizo's modules line, but just a few minutes after scanning the options, a new project was born: The Slithering Salve! Over the years, author Ron Lundeen has shown up as one of the more frequent names from the adventures we've played, and The Slithering will mark the fourth adventure of his that the Order has taken on.

November Update - Conventions, Sanctioning, Stars, Novas and More!

We’ve kinda slowed down a bit on the convention front, with PAX Online being our last big show of 2020, but that doesn’t mean the program slowed down. On the editorial side of the team, we have earlier than last Wed of the month release dates for Nov and Dec scenarios to avoid releasing items on American Thanksgiving or Christmas/Kwanzaa. We also hope to have space to allow our team to take some time off over the holidays.

Secrets of Magic Playtest Aftermath

Hi, folks! Logan here. We’ve had some time to look over the survey results and messageboard posts after the Secrets of Magic playtest concluded, and had team discussions about potential changes ahead. Thanks to everyone who participated in the playtest, playing characters, finding problems, taking surveys, and giving feedback! We wanted to give you a bit of an idea of the direction we’re looking at taking the magus and summoner for the final book. Not everything here is set in stone, though. We still have rewrites to do, more internal conversations to have, and additional data to look at. There are also hundreds of little things we’ll be changing, from individual feats to story elements—this blog is just hitting the main points. And, hey, if you stick around to the end of the blog, we have an extra treat for you!

Nova Qualifications Update

As the campaign evolves, we often take time to review some of our decisions . Recently, we’ve discussed the qualifications for GMs achieving 5 novas. After parsing feedback from the community, we acknowledge the current path of reaching 5-Novas only works for people who can regularly attend conventions and that we need to provide other paths to the 5 nova goal.

Fly Free or Die: Opportunity Cost

Eline Reisora knew an opportunity when she saw one. That’s how she’d gotten out of a grimy orphanage on Absalom Station and adopted by a rich family; it was why she’d busted her ass to graduate at the top of her class, and it was why she’d rejected a cushy position at her father’s bank for an EJ Corp middle-management gig. But after all her hard work and careful planning, here she was on Sovall’s Folly, a good-for-next-to-nothing jungle planet in the Vast. Officially her assignment was supervising medical research into the weird flora and fauna that made up this world’s biosphere; EJ Corp hoped to find a promising cure or medicinal that would rationalize the high cost of investing in this planet in the first place. Unofficially, she babysat scientists and occasionally accompanied a patrol, just to stretch her legs. And that’s how she’d gotten into her current situation.
