December 2022 Organized Play Scenario Previews

Hello, Starfinders! This month we embark on a rescue mission to find an old friend: Envar Tamm! 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!

Giving Thanks in 2022

Greetings, Pathfinders and Starfinders! Today is Thanksgiving here in the United States. This year, I’m thankful for so much.

I got to travel to several local conventions and spend time with even more of you at your home events, and our Paizo family continues to grow with new hires.

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.

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.

This month, First Seeker Ehu Hadif has approved the closure of the Adamantine Bastille, a Starfinder-operated prison located beneath the Lorespire Complex. The facility’s administration has long remained a source of contention and discomfort among members of the Starfinder Society. Take on the role of the agents tasked with overseeing the transfer of the Bastille’s most violent and dangerous inmates to the custody of the Stewards! Don’t worry, I’m sure it will go smoothly! What could go wrong? Starfinder Society Scenario #5-05: Boom-Block Gambit is an exciting metaplot scenario for 5th- through 8th-level characters written by Lysle Kapp.

June 2022 Scenario Previews

The Drift is malfunctioning, Triune has fallen silent, and countless citizens of the Pact Worlds are lost to the chaos! Amid this upheaval, Fitch and numerous Starfinder volunteers trawl Pact Worlds space aboard the Master of Stars, searching for survivors in need of aid, derelict starships, Drift debris to investigate, and clues that might shed light on the source of the Drift Crisis itself. When a starship belonging to an ally of the Society is discovered immobile and powerless, Fitch dispatches a team of Starfinders to investigate. But the PCs’ simple quest to check in on a friend quickly becomes a rescue mission that will take them far beyond starship corridors to an annexed Drift beacon and the metaphorical doorstep of the mysterious “4th.” Starfinder Society Scenario #5-04: Fragment of the 4th is a scenario for levels 9–12 by Isis Wozniakowska.

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.

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!

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.

Starfinder Society: Year 5 Announcement

In the aftermath of the Data Scourge, the Starfinder Society fractures along faction lines! Infighting, power grabs, and suspicion run rampant, all threatening to tear the Society apart. 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. New factions are founded, reforms are enacted, relationships are mended, and trust is tentatively reforged.

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.

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 Society Previews

This month, it’s all about the holidays! At the urging of a cheery raxilite, the Starfinders perform good deeds to spread cheer during three popular Pact Worlds holidays: First Choices, Newspark, and Reunion. First Choices is a shirren diaspora celebration where celebrants share their personal achievements and interests through gift giving. Newspark is a holiday first commemorated by androids to celebrate hope in dark times, known today for its extravagant parades. Finally, Reunion is an Akitonian holiday focused on sharing food and strengthening bonds of love, family, and friendship. Starfinder Society Scenario #4-12: A Festive Operation is a repeatable scenario for levels 3–6 written by Ivis K. Flanagan. I hope this adventure brings joy and laughter to your gaming tables this month!

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.

Giving Thanks in 2021

Today is Thanksgiving in the United States, so the Organized Play team wanted to take a moment to give thanks to our Paizo community. 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 Scenario Previews

This month, First Seeker Ehu Hadif dispatches Starfinders to Eborth, a planet claiming to possess technology immune to the Data Scourge, which they’ll share in exchange for Pact Worlds protectorate status. Alongside representatives from the Stewards and the Xenowardens, the Starfinders serve as envoys tasked with reviewing the world’s petition. On the record, the Starfinders are concerned with examining Eborth’s archaeological sites for clues to the planet’s past, but behind the scenes, the Starfinders must determine if the claims regarding Eborth’s technology are true. With the fate of both Eborth and the Pact Worlds hanging in the balance, there’s sure to be more going on than meets the eye! Starfinder Society Scenario #4-11: A World’s Ambition is a scenario for levels 7–10 written by Matt Duval.

Starfinder Society: The End Of Fame

Greetings, Starfinders! Earlier this year we announced that Fame would be going away, and this naturally prompted a number of questions. We’ve combed through the ensuing discussions and we’re here today to present answers! Many of these will be added to the Starfinder Society FAQ pages or other locations as appropriate, but I wanted to consolidate them all in one place as a reference.

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!

OP Team Updates: Welcome Jessica Catalan

The Starfinder universe is vast and full of adventures just waiting to be discovered. Sometimes, captains of the grand ships that soar between the stars decide it’s time to move to a new vessel for the next phase of their journey. So it is with Jenny Jarzabski, who has been the stalwart captain of the Starfinder Society ship for the past year. She is moving fully on to the Starfinder team, where she will continue to produce excellent adventures in the form of standalone adventures and AP volumes.

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.

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!

Organized Play Schedule Update

Howdy, everybody. Paizo Publisher Erik Mona here. I wanted to stop by the blog today to talk about some upcoming changes to our Pathfinder Society and Starfinder Society scenario offerings in the months ahead. Because I spent many years as an active organized play player and GM before my publishing career and often tried to read the tea leaves behind changes just like these, I want to go over the changes carefully to make sure that no one draws the wrong conclusions.

Organized Play: Pathfinder & Starfinder Interactive Preview

It all started when Starfinder launched and John Compton (lead of Organized Play development at the time) kept threatening me with a “Time Capsule Boon” where he’d let Pathfinder Society Characters transition into Starfinder Society. It was something of the atomic bomb equivalent of threats to be uttered in the office. The idea of crossing the streams between the campaigns was ludicrous. LUDICROUS, I SAY!

June 2021 Organized Play Update

I thought about writing “no musings, head empty, only PaizoCon” in this space but Tonya told me I couldn’t I decided against it. Instead, I’m going to take this space to give a shout-out to some people who went above and beyond in making PaizoCon Online happen this year. Please note that I’m writing this two days before the convention due to deadlines, so if I forgot someone, I can still blame Convention Brain.
