We hope you're enjoying the Pathfinder Society Adventure Card Guild's "Season 0" trial run, Season of the Shackles. All six adventures will be available for purchase as of April 15, and we'll soon be making a Season of the Shackles deck available for purchase as a print-on-demand product at DriveThruCards.com. That deck will feature all the new cards we created for the season, so you won't have to use proxy cards if you don't want to. The Adventure Path loot reward Councilor's Ring will also be available at DriveThruCards.com at the same time.
We've learned a lot from Season of the Shackles, and we'll be applying that experience to make the next season of Adventure Card Guild play even better. Season 1, dubbed Season of the Righteous, will premiere with the launch of the Wrath of the Righteous Base Set on May 27.
Here's the planned schedule for the season:

Iconic Heroes Promo Cards
Each Adventure Card Guild character can treat the promo card that belongs to the iconic for her class as if it was in her Class Deck. For example, Wu Shen, a character from the Rogue Class Deck, would be able to take the item Footpad's Boots for any B or better deck upgrade, since we treat the set indicator P as 0.
If you're playing Merisiel in the Adventure Card Guild, you'll be in even better shape. Because Merisiel is listed as the card's owner, she can treat the Footpad's Boots as if that card has the Basic trait. That means she can start play with that card in her deck!
Change to Feat Progression
The biggest change to the PFSACG organized play system is a response to the feedback we've received from event organizers concerning the difficulty of mustering tables at small- and medium-sized events. Players from different local tables sometimes need different scenarios, but it can be difficult to backtrack and catch up. We hear that concern, and we're tinkering with ways to alter feat progression that will ease mustering problems. Details will come in the next version of the PFSACG Guide to Organized Play. In the coming days, we'll also be working closely with the organized play campaign's venture-officers to refine ideas and deliver the best possible experience for the first full season of the program.
New Guide to Organized Play
What a segue! That's right, the card game team is working on an updated version of the Pathfinder Society Adventure Card Guild Guide to Organized Play. This version of the guide will feature the update to promo cards mentioned above, as well as details on how the Wrath of the Righteous Base Set's mythic paths will be used in Adventure Card Guild play. We're also adding sections that explain how to fill out a Chronicle sheet, simplify the deck upgrade process, and address characters that want to play both Season 0 and Season 1. All the detail-oriented, rules-lawyering fun your greedy little heart could ask for will be coming to you through a download in mid-May.
Free Base Set Program for Retailers Continues
Retailers loved our free base set program as a way to get people into their stores and playing in the Adventure Card Guild, so we're continuing the program with the Season of the Righteous. Game stores that have registered with Paizo's retailer locator will be contacted in the next few weeks with details about how to get a free Wrath of the Righteous Base Set. If your store hasn't signed up, you'd best get to it!
Until next time, Pathfinders.
