Pathfinder Adventure Path: Abomination Vaults

The Abomination Vaults in One Big Book!

I’m Ron Lundeen, development manager responsible for the Abomination Vaults Adventure Path. I knew this campaign would be a big hit from the start: it has old-fashioned kick-down-the-door dungeon exploration seeded with interesting NPCs, side quests, and tons of roleplaying. The authors—James Jacobs, Vanessa Hoskins, and Stephen Radney-MacFarland—really blew me away by adding exciting action sequences and compelling character personalities to every dungeon level. The Abomination Vaults present more than a place to fight monsters and grab loot (although there’s plenty of that!), but an opportunity for heroes to solve mysteries, negotiate old feuds, rescue innocent people, and much more. And, of course, the villain lurking behind the scenes is a terrifying and powerful enemy. She’s right there on the cover and, wow, does she look angry!

Subscribe to the Drift Crisis for Cosmic Catastrophe

Brace yourselves for the Drift Crash! In one catastrophic instant, the extraplanar realm fails, cutting off the universe’s access to commonplace faster-than-light travel. Travelers vanish midflight, communications scramble, and the Drift’s progenitor god Triune falls mysteriously silent. In the aftermath, empires cling to far-flung holdings, opportunists exploit the chaos, and everyone demands to know what triggered this crisis—and how it can be solved.

April 2022 Organized Play Monthly Update

It’s no secret that the past two years have been hard on the program. One w¬ay we’ve seen this most clearly is in convention support. Prior to the pandemic, we would send out support to hundreds of events worldwide; obviously, mass gatherings have been in short supply since then. Last year was our smallest year since we started keeping records in 2016.

Pathfinder Adventure Path #178: Punks in a Powderkeg (Outlaws of Alkenstar 1 of 3)

Introducing the Outlaws of Alkenstar Player’s Guide

A gang of outlaws, each with their own grudge against the villains who wronged them, must join forces to get their revenge. In the steam-powered city of Alkenstar, where most business is as orderly as the hands on a clock, these rugged antiheroes will have to go against the grain if they’re to settle their vendettas.

Last Chance for the Kobold Hoard!

The curtain rises. The set evokes somewhere deep within the dimly-lit-yet-safe-and-sanitary Paizo warehouse. Tall, industrial metal shelves full of pallets and cardboard boxes reach to the high ceiling above with wide corridors stretching to infinity. Some boxes are half open. Perhaps there’s a discarded mask or two on the floor and a forklift partially visible. The time of day is uncertain in the artificial light. The sound of an athletic, yet not truly violent, scuffle is heard from offstage or as a sound cue. With a flash, a small red reptilian figure with a slender, yet well-fed body and long tail appears out of a yellow cloud, smelling of rotten eggs. Enter Boldo.

Organized Play Preview: 2022 Interactive Events

Today we’re going to pull back the curtain on our two upcoming multi-table interactive events for the 2022 Paizo Organized Play season. If you’re not familiar, Pathfinder and Starfinder Organized Play release yearly multi-table events that can be played with as few as three tables and well over 150+ tables at the world’s largest events. These are intended to be epic adventures where players can work alongside others to accomplish monumental feats and battle great evils. In the past, these events have often been tied to key story points for Organized Play. Last year, we explored the unique events of a Pathfinder and Starfinder crossover. This year, we’re keeping away from the ongoing metaplots of our Organized Play years and making our multi-table interactive events a bit more standalone, so they can be enjoyed by anyone at any time.

Pathfinder Lost Omens: Absalom, City of Lost Omens

Tales of Lost Omens: Dyrani Of The Harvest

The crowd in front of the vast chasm surrounding the Starstone Cathedral was slightly larger today than most days. Visitors from all over Golarion stopped by the great pit every day to marvel at the ancient edifice at its center, to dream of the stone hidden away behind its massive walls, lethal traps, and immortal guardians. It was said that the Starstone granted immeasurable power to any who could touch its crystalline surface and pass the final test of spirit. Those who succeeded became gods. Most simply fell to their deaths in the chasm outside and the rare few who made it in the cathedral were usually never heard from again.

Iconic Encounter: Wreckers Reunion - Part Three

Droven could hardly believe the twists and turns the last few days had taken. Month after month, season after season, he’d traveled the continent of Arcadia, searching for passage back to Absalom, an ocean away in the region known as the Inner Sea. He had spent more than a few days in the last weeks carefully examining the soles of his metal-reinforced boots. Long ago, he’d promised one of the first friends he’d made in Arcadia, an old half-orc named Darv, that if he still hadn’t found a way back to Absalom by the time the soles of wore thin, he’d return to Darv’s workshop to begin a new life.

Faced with the past mistakes of the Society, the betrayal and heinous crimes of former Starfinders, the grievances of active agents, and the weakening of external alliances, First Seeker Ehu Hadif embarks on a year of change. He opens the floor to all agents, giving them a platform to voice concerns, plans, and ambitions, and lobby for change.

February Scenario Previews

This month we’re back on the trail of legendary explorer Jelev Rasheen! Well known for her voyages at the dawn of Drift travel, Jelev made regular trips into the Drift, returning every few years with holds full of treasures and relics from distant worlds. After her mysterious disappearance, dozens of alleged children, partners, and adventuring companions spread one final tale about Rasheen: that she was last seen commanding a fleet of ships laden with treasure. Over the years, the Starfinder Society has investigated two of Jelev Rasheen’s treasure beacons, and now they’ve discovered a third. So buckle up and blast off, Starfinders! There’s treasure out there! Starfinder Society Scenario #4-14: Rasheen’s Riches is a scenario for levels 7–10 written by Mara Lynn Butler.

Iconic Encounter: Returning Home - Part Four

Amiri's arms burned as she hauled herself upward. Her hands cramped from finding tenuous grips on small extrusions of stone, and one particularly vicious bit of rock had sliced open a good gash below her knee out of what she assumed was sheer spite. She unspooled her rope as she went, securing it whenever she found an anchor point she was sure could bear Branum and Oska's weight.

All the Adventure Fit to Print

Friends,
We’re pleased to announce that we’ve started shipping our Pathfinder Complete Character Chronicles! These chronicles are the end result of over a year of work and worry, and they wouldn't have been possible without the support of our Kickstarter backers and our partners at Paizo. For the design, writing, editing, art selection, layout, and production, we have been fortunate to find great partners. And although covid, international shipping madness, and the occasional kraken have moved our delivery date around more than we would’ve liked, we couldn't be happier with the final product. We hope you feel the same once they land on your doorstep.

Iconic Encounter: Returning Home - Part Two

Sometimes, when Amiri was bored, she considered all the ways she could have died over the years. Not that she had any desire to analyze them strategically, as one companion had suggested. Nor to contemplate the inevitability of death and its philosophical implications, as another had asked.

Iconic Encounter: Returning Home - Part One

The sky was scabbed over with ominous looking clouds, but Amiri refused to take them as an ill omen. Just being back here in these mountains was all the bad luck she needed.

Quest For The Frozen Flame: Eiwa's Lesson

I remember the years of struggle. Long, stretching seasons where sunlight was sparse, and the hungry night arrived all too quickly. I remember the rites and songs as we laid follower after follower to rest, forced to move ever onward. Parent and child, animals, friends: none were safe as we carved our new paths and founded our new lives.

January 2022 Organized Play Monthly Update

I don’t usually make New Year’s resolutions. That’s not because I’m perfect—far from it!—but because inevitably I will forget about them in a couple of weeks without someone to hold me accountable. However, it occurred to me that this space is an excellent place to set out some goals for this year, which I hope you’ll all help me complete. So here are some of my New Year’s resolutions for Organized Play in 2022:

Tales of Lost Omens: The Audition

“You stand defeated, Voradni Voon!” Melika shouted, brandishing her tin sword at Elophos. The older actor bellowed, throwing his hands up in a defiant gesture meant to cover a quick tightening of the straps holding on his minotaur horns, which had begun to slide dangerously sideways.

Iconic Encounter: Pitstop Eclipse

They’d landed on a port moon to rehaul their ship before rendezvousing with the rest of the Pact World diplomatic team on a newly discovered world called Sigerro. A routine enough stop, but then, even in Near Space, the routine could quickly turn to excitement.

Celebrating National Science Fiction Day

Today is National Science Fiction Day in the U.S., so it feels a bit like a communal unbirthday for every author who writes weird fiction speculating about what might happen. I took a stroll around the virtual office to talk with some of my colleagues, who are science fiction authors and game designers themselves, and asked them to talk about their personal connections to sci-fi, their inspirations, and what kind of stories interest them.

Join the quest for suicide awareness and prevention at Rolling in the New Year!

Jasper’s Game Day is a non-profit organization that raises money for suicide prevention and awareness. They do this through RPGs such as Pathfinder and Starfinder. JGD strives to reduce the stigma around talking about mental health so the world can start to treat it just like physical health. But they are so much more than that: they are building a community of individuals that are unique and have a love for all things RPG. They combine the fun of Pathfinder and Starfinder with the quest toward suicide awareness and prevention, and it will an epic experience.

Pathfinder Lost Omens: Monsters of Myth

Authors of Myth

Let these mythical creatures not be overshadowed! Our freelancers aren't monsters in any sense of the word, but according to the vernacular of today's internet, you could call them absolute beasts! While the writers of our Paizo products are always credited in the front and back of the books, a simple name in a byline doesn’t give readers much information on the people who work to bring the setting to life. Instead, I reached out to the authors with the intent of promoting them—as well as any other personal work they would like to show off, so that new fans could find other projects, RPG products, websites, livestreams, and more to enjoy! If there's a section in the book that you particularly liked, why not check out the author behind it today?
