Calling All Seekers!

Monday, March 14, 2016

The Pathfinder Society Roleplaying Guild has produced a huge number of great adventures over the years, but few can compare to series Eyes of the Ten, a four-part extravaganza of high-level play and dire revelations about the Society and its enemies. Just ask any veteran of the campaign. When Eyes of the Ten survivors meet up at conventions, they excitedly swap stories of "Here's how we handled this faction mission," "We saved that NPC by doing this," and "Yeah, that monster nearly ended us—twice." A lot of that excitement comes from the powerful story and wild destinations, but a big share of the exhilaration comes from something we do all too rarely in Pathfinder Society: play high-level characters. In fact, nearly 5 years have passed since the last installment of Eyes of the Ten released. In that time the campaign has included a few higher-level opportunities in interactive specials and sanctioned high-level printed adventures, but the organized play program hasn't really published more high-level content that it can call its own.

In Season 7 we want to change that. We've assembled an all-star team of writers for our new three-part Seeker arc All for Immortality, which debuts this April. As in Eyes of the Ten, this new story takes the PCs to exciting new locations, many of which I've always wanted to visit but could never justify in a lower-level adventure. Likewise, you'll clash with powerful villains we dared not face before and deal a powerful blow to some of the Society's oldest enemies. The action begins in Thuvia with Pathfinder Society Scenario #7-20: All for Immortality, Part 1: First Taste of Eternity by veteran organized play author Thurston Hillman. Now that the secret's out, you'll see the product page appear soon.

Let's talk some numbers. First, this is a three-part series, and we're not going to make you wait a whole season to experience the story; expect #7-26 (Part 2) in June and #7-29 (Part 3) in July, following a brief hiatus to manage PaizoCon releases in May. Second, we're aware that it can be tough to schedule Eyes of the Ten because it requires PCs to have exactly 33 XP. That's a necessary restriction for a series written with only one character level in mind, but it would be so much easier for players and organizers if we treated this more like standard scenarios, right? After all, I imagine many players would love to play both Seeker arcs with the same character. With that in mind, I'm happy to announce that all three All for Immortality adventures are Tier 12-15 (Subtiers 12-13 and 14-15).

Finally, there's one additional date that you should remember: April 6th! That Wednesday, Tonya and I will be joining Ryan and Perram on the Know Direction Podcast to discuss this—including the other adventures' titles, authors, and destinations—share news about upcoming conventions, and answer your questions. Join us!

Also, check back here next week for some long-anticipated sanctioned material for the Pathfinder Society Roleplaying Guild.

Can't wait! Now does a new character join the ranks of Seekers or do I continue with my current Seeker level character....?

Shadow Lodge *****

Well, that's fantastic. Gives us another excuse to get our core campaign VCs together...

Hooooo boy!

This is what I hoped for but was sure wouldn't happen!

Time to get another PC retired ASAP.

EDIT: And it's written by Thursty. Is this real life?

I am all but giddy with anticipation to play this series.

I am excited for this!, I do hope they don't retire Eyes of Ten though, it is a historical scenario if nothing else!

*checks character, checks the scenario levels, checks possible advancement paths...*

"...let's see, just hit 9th... have to get three levels... not die... that's nine scenarios (or three modules...)"

The Exchange ***

Awesome! (also called it!)

So you mention playing both arcs on the same character but Eyes leaves you at 13.2. Is there a way to transition from Eyes into high tier without having to play a module between them or is that just something that must be done?

*

This is great. Our lodge starts Eyes right before this comes out so we should get done with that just in time to do this arc.

Sovereign Court ****

AHA! At long last Immortality is within my grasp! I always knew I would never die! I just need to find some way to get my hands on that delicious golden elixir. I wonder if I could blame it on bandits...

Lantern Lodge *****

The hard part is figuring out who gets to play it. Too many options. 12s, 13.2s, 15s...

WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOT!

Also, PLEASE remember to report the games when you play these. We want to make sure that Paizo knows that we are playing this so there will be more in the future!

With the Sky Key, you could steal it multiple times, even!

So, which part of the series does Hats show up in? He is coming, right?

We need more haberdashery.

You wouldn't dare to just guzzle without thinking would you!? That's one of the most precious fluids in the multiverse, it must be studied, analyzed... reverse engineered...

Compared to the taste of Caiden Calien ale and see which is better?

Time for Shivok and Nymshyrr to come out of retirement!

Senel Trolus shall return to the front lines with galactic wedgies for all!!!

Silver Crusade ****

A couple of quick questions on this:

* Is Eyes of the Ten going to remain playable for the foreseeable future?
* Are each of these parts of the new arc worth as a normal scenario, 1 XP each? If so, completing all 3 will gain you 1 level.

I considered that my friend, I truly did.

Unfortunately some stick-in-the-mud told me that doing so would cause something called a "time pair of ducks." I don't know how immortality elixirs and star metal artifacts are related to waterfowl, but she seemed annoyed when I asked.

I don't have a seeker yet, but still ":O"

You could do it with Race for the Runecarved Key or Siege of the Diamond City.

YAY!!!! High Level is so much fun!!

Pft. Immortality or no, it's obvious which one is better...

Silver Crusade **

Arg... My seeker just hit 15th, so he may be out... Good news though, my bloodrager in 12 and my shield marshal is 10, so I'm almost there!

Shadow Lodge

Wonder if we'll enter a)Abaddon b) Citadel of the Alchemist c) House of Oblivion.

Personally, I'd prefer b) since chances are the opposition needs to target touch AC and harbor hardness to get anything done against the kind of ultra-tuned seeker-ICBM's that're going to come rushing out of the Seeker woodwork.

Okay, that sentence confuses even me. tl;dr I'm thinking about just running a 33 exp Seeker. Level 15 characters have escaped all checks placed on PC's.

Oh this will be exciting! I am so glad that you are offering a new Seeker arc. This will make so many people in Minnesota happy.

Though this means I'm going to actually have to get a character up to that level at some point...

Hmm

The Exchange ***

Tier 14-15 makes me think we will be seeing a very powerful enemy.. some might even call him The Living God.

Pictured is the Sun Orchid Elixir. I'm very excited for this!

Urgh, hope this has nothing do with City of Golden Random Encounter List.

Remember that when EotT was conceived, written, and released, there was no way of getting above 33 XP. There weren't sanctioned modules or adventure paths. You simply played 33 scenarios at 1 XP per adventure and then had one capstone Tier 12 series to play. The confusion and annoyance came later as a result of the campaign growing in offerings without releasing new OP-exclusive high-level content.
