We've got a lot of incredible products coming out in the next few months, and it's no secret that this blog's readers love previews. While this blog does feature a new piece of art, I thought it'd be a waste not to mention another way we preview upcoming material: Pathfinder Society Scenarios.

Since print products generally need to go to the printer months before they come out for general consumption, there's a pocket of several weeks between when something's done when we know its finalized content. Pathfinder Society Scenarios are pdf-only products, and don't require the same lead-time in the production process, and that means that sometimes we can slip in some actual mechanics from complete but unreleased products.

Last month's release of Pathfinder Society Scenario #2-08: The Sarkorian Prophecy saw content from the forthcoming Pathfinder Campaign Setting: Book of the Damned—Volume 2: Lords of Chaos. Of the two scenarios releasing today, Pathfinder Society Scenario #2-09: The Heresy of Man, Part III: Beneath Forgotten Sands not only wraps up the three part Heresy of Man arc by Greg A. Vaughan and Kevin J. Wright, it also contains two monsters from the pages of the highly anticipated Pathfinder Roleplaying Game Bestiary 2.

I hope to continue the trend of including sneak previews of upcoming material into Pathfinder Society Scenarios, both to reward active players with new content before it's widely available and to make adventures as awesome as they can be by using all the tools at my disposal. Be sure to check out the two new scenarios releasing today as well as two additional scenarios the last Wednesday of every month.

Addendum: Unfortunately, due to Seattle's inability to clear roads of ice and snow, we are still without an editorial staff. Final edits are being made from home, but can't be entered into the document outside the office. Thus, today's scenarios will be a little late. We expect to have them up no later than Tuesday of next week. We apologize for the delay, and appreciate your patience.

The month of February dissappeared from the product schedule. I have a feeling that means more product push-backs. Grumble.

I was out in Seattle in the last "BIG" snow storm the city clean up trucks look like heavy duty pick up trucks and nobody can drive them> I was out in the "crummy" weather tooling around in the rental, I got pulled over 5 time by the police about the bad driving weather until I supplied my ID. Im from Wisconsin, Seattle's horrible weather is just another snowy day here. It was fun driving the police nuts and not getting in trouble for it. :))


Ya it's a good thing Paizo is not based out of Chicago.

Well, I imagine Chicago has a much better infrastructure for dealing with snow. The combination of its infrequency and the geography here make it really difficult to deal with.

Yes, when they can afford salt and gas to run the trucks . . . ;)

Actually for me this might not be a bad thing. I was looking at a $140 to $150 ish subscription month......

Well, since most of my work is helping companies implement mobile working/ERP/online collaboration systems, may be you should retain me to upgrade your computer systems so you can run all of Paizo remotely -- Lisa can decide whether or not to pay people from the comfort of her bed, Wes can mock a contributer's flawed grasp of the present perfect participle from the safety of his jacuzzi, Erik can point of my poor use of the Rule of Three from somewhere other than his office desk...

You get shiny new ICT systems, we get snow-proof Pathfindery goodness :)
