February 2024 Organized Play Monthly Update

After the longest January in memory (seriously, I swear it was eight weeks long), it’s now the shortest month of the year! Before you know it, it’ll be March, then May… and then PaizoCon… and Gen Con… oh no, I have so much to do. Can I have some of January back?!

An All Ages Explanation

I wanted to take a moment to talk about something new we’ll be doing to help parents and educators who play our adventures with their kiddos. While we aim to hit a “PG-13” level of maturity for our standard adventures, there are plenty out there that are perfectly suited for those young adventurers out there, and we know it’s hard for someone to know which ones qualify without reading the adventures themselves or asking others in the community. In upcoming quests, we’ll be creating an image for the cover and product page that indicates the quest is suitable for All Ages, as well as tagging the adventure with that label.

December 2023 Organized Play Monthly Update

Hello everyone, and happy December! This blog is a week later than usual because I’ve just returned from PAX Unplugged, which was a tremendous success! It was our first visit since 2019, as well as my first visit overall, so I wasn’t sure what to expect. My worst fear was that nobody would be interested in our games, and we’d be sitting around all day bored out of our skulls.

November 2023 Organized Play Monthly Update

I am very sorry to report to you all that Linda Zayas-Palmer’s last day with Paizo was October 20th. Linda has been with Organized Play for more than a decade, from her time as a GM to being hired at Paizo and eventually leading development. She's launched two separate Organized Play programs, which is a feat few can match. We will miss her terribly, and I will miss her especially as a partner in crime (metaphorically, of course; we never did any crimes that you can prove). If you are so inclined, please leave a nice message for her in the comments below!

Pathfinder Society and the Remaster

Ever since we announced the Pathfinder Remaster project, my inbox has not known peace. Every day I get asked by the Pathfinders worldwide, “how will Pathfinder Society handle the Remaster?” Every day I must give the same answer, “I don’t know yet! Ask me in 1d4 months!”

The weather’s taken a dramatic turn here in Seattle. Just a week ago it was bright sunshine and beautiful skies, but now things are dark, gloomy, dramatic, and chilly. It’s the perfect weather to curl up inside with your friends and family and play some games! We’ve got some great spooky scenarios for you this season, and some wintery adventures coming up to chill your bones. Let’s get into it!

November 2022 Organized Play Monthly Update

This month I was lucky enough to attend two local conventions! CinCityCon in Cincinnati, OH and Scarefest in Asheville, NC both welcomed me with open arms. One of the best parts of my job is getting to see the effect our programs have on the community, and these two weekends were a great opportunity for that. I got to see community members rejoin games that hadn’t been seen since before the pandemic, and even run some games for players who had never played before.

Paizo PDF Pricing Changes

For many years, Paizo has largely set PDF pricing as a percent of the full print MSRP. While this process worked well early on, the rise of digital goods and expressions has matured, and the exceptions made for certain categories to be priced higher or lower has somewhat scrambled the logic used to build those systems.

Put a Pathfinder Society pin on it!

Hey adventurers, it’s Mark from Campaign Coins here again. We’ve loved watching the Pathfinder Society expand and evolve with Pathfinder Second Edition with all-new factions and adventure seasons. I especially love reading through the splendid Lost Omens Pathfinder Society Guide, which brilliantly showcases how the society is as much a part of the world of Golarion as it is in our real world of Organized Play in stores and conventions. Mad respect to all venture captains and heroic society members who run and play games.

Seasons of Pathfinder Society

Late last year, in my new role as the creative lead for Pathfinder Society Organized Play, I sat down to plan the plots and themes for Year 4. One of my first experiences on the Organized Play team back in January 2021 was to sit in on the pitch meeting for Pathfinder Society Year 3: Year of Shattered Sanctuaries. It was thrilling to see what Thursty had planned for the year, and I couldn’t wait to see how it turned out.

I’m gonna drop a hot take at the top of this blog: I think PaizoCon was a success this year! Everybody who’d been there before couldn’t help but comment on how different it felt, but as someone with no base of reference, I had a great time. We ran over 100 Organized Play games in the ballroom, including our first hybrid special. I got to hang out with some of my awesome coworkers and meet some fantastic community members, and I spent way too much money in our store!

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.

Last year was our smallest year since we started keeping records in 2016.

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.

Happy Holidays 2021 from Organized Play!

Greetings, friends, and happy holidays! Whether you celebrate Hanukkah, Kwanzaa, First Choices, Winterbloom, Festivus, or Christmas—whether your holidays are done for the year or just beginning—we hope you’re spending the close of the year surrounded by your chosen family, friends, and loved ones. Here at Organized Play, we’re hunkered down for the year. Linda has dug herself free of the sanctioning slush pile and dashed off into the woods; Mike is trying to put his gingerbread house back together after something shadowy smashed it to bits; Jessica has finally decrypted her holiday card list; and Thurston… well. Who knows what nonsense Thurston is cooking up these days. I myself will be spending the holidays curled up with my husband and a good book as I desperately try to complete my resolution of cutting down the pile of books on my bedside table.

December 2021 Organized Play Update

As we approach the end of the year, it's tradition to look back on the year that was. There are many words I could use to describe this year in Organized Play: turbulent, uncertain, hopeful...the list goes on. In some ways we have made progress from where we were last year: physical games are slowly starting up in some areas, we've got piles of new content for our players, and we've produced another full year of scenarios. By the same token, there are still many areas that haven't changed: conventions are mostly still online, and we're not sure what the future of large-scale shows will look like.

Without you all, the worlds of Pathfinder and Starfinder would be just stories we told ourselves. We’re grateful for all your support and wish you well as this year comes to a close. We also want to thank the Organized Play community organizers for supporting our programs in these turbulent times. Without the venture-officers, we would lack structure, and without GMs, we would lack games. To all of you who spend time planning schedules and completing tasks behind the scenes, a huge shout out of thanks!

November 2021 Organized Play Update

By the time you read this, I will have returned from my first physical convention as a Paizo employee! I’ll be flying to Minneapolis with Tonya to attend SkålCon and I’m very excited about it. I’m writing this blog before the trip, so I don’t have any stories to tell, but ask future Alex (which, again, will be present Alex once you read this) about it!

September 2021 Sanctioning Status Update

Hello, Pathfinders and Starfinders! I wanted to take a moment here to discuss our current sanctioning status for both programs. We’ve had a lot of stuff roll out recently, and a lot more to come, so I wanted to get it all in one place.

September Scenario Previews

Hiya, Starfinders! I have something special for you this month. A while back, I was discussing real-world current events that caused shipping delays with some friends, and someone jokingly commented that it would make a great Starfinder Society scenario. I couldn’t get the thought out of my head, and as I let the idea percolate, it kept getting weirder and weirder. How weird is it? Well, let’s just say the Society might solve a shipping crisis in more than one way.

Behind the Scenes: Building an Organized Play Year

The concept of the beginning of a year is a bit of a strange one for those of us on the Organized Play team. The turning of a year on the calendar is far less prominent in our workflow than the beginning of a new season of Organized Play adventures.

September 2021 Organized Play Update

Those of you with high Perception modifiers will notice that this section has a new title. As of Monday, I have been promoted to Paizo’s Organized Play Coordinator! This is a very exciting change that Tonya and I have been working toward for a while. I am now responsible for most of the day-to-day operations of the program, as well as the long-term planning for Organized Play. It’s a lot of responsibility, but I’m very excited by the prospect!

Organized Play Update: Increased Rewards for Sanctioned Content

As we recently announced, we will be producing fewer Pathfinder and Starfinder Society Scenarios in 2022, and we’ll be using sanctioned content such as the Digital One Shots to help fill some of the gaps in the schedule. To help ease this change and fix some long-outstanding issues, we’ve also updated the rewards for some of our older sanctioned content to match our plans moving forward. The changes are detailed below; in particular, we hope you all enjoy the boost in spending money and Reputation!

August 2021 Organized Play Update

The news last week about reduced scenario production is, of course, disappointing. We’re saddened that we won’t be bringing as much new Pathfinder and Starfinder Society content to your tables, but we hope you will take this opportunity to try out some of our other sanctioned content for both programs. I myself am starting to plan for a Strength of Thousands run with some of our local players, and I’m very excited for it!

Expanding on the Expanse

Since the launch of Pathfinder Second Edition, we’ve released a number of adventures set in the Mwangi Expanse. The upcoming Strength of Thousands Adventure Path might be one of the most anticipated, but we've also explored the Expanse in Age of Ashes, the standalone adventure The Slithering, and multiple Pathfinder Society scenarios. Such a vast and beautiful locale invariably invites exploration beyond what has already been presented, however, and there's no better resource for that than Pathfinder Lost Omens The Mwangi Expanse!

PAX Online is happening July 15–18, 2021 and we’re bringing Paizo Organized Play events to the convention. During the day, we are focused on demos and bounties to engage new players to try out a session. After the show floor closes, we’ve got full scenario blocks planned, focusing on low-level scenarios and scenarios with included pregens.

Pathfinder Society Intro Scenarios

Last week we announced the Year of Shattered Sanctuaries, and this week we’re taking a closer look at the three scenarios releasing when the new season launches. Those of you who have had the opportunity to play our new intro scenarios for Starfinder Society, which debuted at PaizoCon Online in May, already have some idea of what’s coming! We’re taking the same approach for this upcoming series of Pathfinder Society intro scenarios. Let’s take a closer look at each of these adventures, as well as an exciting new friend your characters get to meet!

Pathfinder Society: Year 3 Announcement

With the Pathfinder Society’s attention focused on distant lands as of late, new threats have arisen closer to home. The Grand Lodge is suddenly overwhelmed with desperate calls for aid from lodges across the Inner Sea—and from the Society’s allies within the city of Absalom itself! Are these unrelated events, or a unified effort to undermine the Pathfinder Society? Whatever their origin, one thing is certain: if left unchecked, these threats may topple some of the Society’s greatest lodges and alliances!
