Another PaizoCon is in the books, and I'm happy to say we mostly survived (R.I.P., Sad Ezren). This was the biggest con yet for the Pathfinder Adventure Card Game and the Pathfinder Society Adventure Card Guild. More people then ever are getting involved!
Adventure Card Guild Launches Season of the Righteous
Several hundred players jumped into the new Season of the Righteous with bared blades and a fierce sense of adventure. This week, those of you who play in the Adventure Card Guild at your friendly local game store will be able to launch the new season with Scenarios 1-1A (Cloven Trail) and 1-1B (Instant Inquisition). You'll get your first introduction to your patron and friend, the Herald of Iomedae.
Adventure Card Game Announcements
Adventure Card Game panel attendees put up with a fair amount of ridiculousness from the panelists to get their questions answered. Vic Wertz added to the legend of the bunyip. Liz Spain provided a colorful anecdote about African porcupines that only have quills on their hindquarters: When they become aggressive, they can run backwards at a predator to stab it. I then took the opportunity to inform the room that... well, read the headline.
Banquet attendees at the PaizoCon Preview Banquet got a sackful of good tidbits. I announced the launch of a Class Decks monthly subscription through paizo.com (coming next month) and the names of some upcoming Class Decks: the barbarian and the alchemist. Mike talked about various awesome bits of Wrath of the Righteous and then announced the next base set: it's Mummy's Mask!
The design team also got an opportunity to test out some new material on enthusiastic
victimsconvention-goers. We'd like to thank Sarah Bull, Eric Ruocco, Alejandro Valdivia, Denise Panciera, Rob Zemlicka, Jennifer Pesek, Darran Caldemeyer, Michelle Caldemeyer, Daniel Powell, Jason Windham, Michael Huguenard, James Wronowski, Sarah Lehmann, and many others for their feedback on the Adventure Card Guild Open tournament format and some scenario testing for Mummy's Mask. Here's a note on the Open: We plan to release some more tickets for the ACG Open. We'll let you know on the blog when that's going to happen.
The "Best Character Ever" debate returns next week with designer Liz Spain's argument. Until then, I leave you with this.
