Pathfinder Society Sanctioning: Strange Aeons

Wednesday, May 16, 2018

I spent several minutes trying to think of a clever name for the blog announcing that we had finished sanctioning the Strange Aeons Adventure Path. However, after talking to the team and reading the posts from players eager to get started playing the adventure path in a PFS-sanctioned environment, I realized that less was probably more. So, as you may have surmised from the title, Strange Aeons is now officially sanctioned and available for Pathfinder Society credit!

Strange Aeons is the first sanctioning project I tackled after joining the OP developer team here at Paizo, so the boons and decisions in the sanctioning document are a combination of my (perhaps overly) enthusiastic ideas tempered and refined by John and Linda's wisdom and experience. We came up with an idea that the boons themselves could tie into the search for identity and purpose that interweaves the themes of psychological and subversive horror found in Strange Aeons, taking fundamental questions about who your character is and why they're on this adventure and turning them into mechanical benefits that enhance an already-awesome story.

But what if Strange Aeons isn't really your kind of adventure? Well, no worries, because there are even more modules and adventure paths queued up and rapidly nearing completion! I'm not going to spoil the surprise, but I will say that the next module sanctioning we've got working its way through the publication process rhymes with "Hearing the Bound Ditty" and I recently sent off a sanctioning document for layout that rhymes with "Druids of Pantsland." So, I guess what I'm saying is, be ready for an awesome year full of newly sanctioned content!

Happy gaming everyone!

Wait... so the document is supposed to be 1 page and they haven't finished the chronicle sheets or did they just put up the wrong document?

No peeking Raymond!!

I'm really glad this happened. This allowed me to finally get my gunslinger to seeker status and beyond... to level 18.

For Iron Gods, Giant Slayer, Curse of the Crimson Throne, Serpent's Skull, and Hell's Rebels, retroactive PFS credit was allowed, but only for players and GMs who were still playing the AP (but not yet finished) at the time the sanctioning document went live.

That language does not appear here, suggesting that (at the moment, at least) retroactive credit is not PFS-legal. But just as Hell's Rebels credit was allowed after attention was drawn to that, will the same be applied to Strange Aeons? Thanks!

There's a typo on the bottom of the left column on page 1, the sentence that talks about using a pregen if you don't have a character in tier. As written, the sanctioned portion of "Dreams of the Yellow King" is for character levels 8-10, and there are no pregens in that tier.

Unless the text was significantly changed in the last few days (in which case please disregard my entire comment), that part of the sanctioning document does not apply to Dreams of the Yellow King.

For the sanctioned content in “In Search of Sanity,” and “The Thrushmoor Terror,” if you do not have a character in the correct level range, you may use a Pathfinder Society pregenerated character,

Retroactive credit still applies, identically to the aforementioned APs.
