Wishing You Happy Holidays and New Year!

Friday, December 21, 2018

From a whole new adventure the Paizo crew has taken on with the announcement of the Pathfinder Playtest early this year, to new Pathfinder and Starfinder Adventure Path campaigns, and now our current Starfinder Playtest, 2018 has been an amazingly busy and exciting time. Earlier this afternoon we began sharing our retrospectives from the last 12 months and it's always so wonderfully surprising how quickly they've gone by. We also get to think on how grateful we are for the encouragement and feedback our community has extended to us as we explore new systems and ideas within our games, our community, and of course paizo.com. It's important to us to take this moment to say: THANK YOU!

We'll continue to share our thoughts and favorite moment from 2018 over the next week, but we'll also be taking some welcome time to take a break before ramping back up in January with previews of what's to come. You can expect to see more updates in the new year about the second edition of Pathfinder, the new Starfinder Beginner Box, and the evolution of the Pathfinder Adventure Card Game, as well as our Organized Play programs. It's going to be an awesome journey!

In addition to all of our thanks, to show our appreciation for your and the community's continued support, you can now use the holiday19 promotional code to receive a discount on an order from paizo.com.*

From everyone here at Paizo, we wish you safe travel, natural 20s, and hope you enjoy a wonderful holiday season!

Best wishes and happy gaming,
The Paizo Staff

A Goblin vs. Skittermanders snowball fight feels like the kind of thing we'd need a proper special or other event for if PaizoCon fell closer to winter...

Merry Christmas Paizo people. Hope you all have a restful few weeks.

I'm saddened there wasn't at least one goblin trying to light a snowball on fire.

C'est la vie!

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

Confirmed: next year's Free RPG Day module is a We Be Goblins vs Skitter Shot water gun fight.

Wishing a great Christmas, Holidays, and New Year to all Paizo folks. I'm very impressed by what you guys have come up with in 2018 with the playtest: The pre-product, and even more so the process and the engagement with the player community. I look forward to the final product in 2019. Cheers!

I am absurdly pleased by this!

Hope everybody enjoys some richly-deserved time off!

I’m channeling my best Hmm here...

Skittermander Snow-Ball Fight,
Beating Gobbos o’er the plain.
And Zarongel in reply
Helps the Gobs return the pain.

Skitters got high ground, so...

Happy and Merry to all! GOOD NIGHT!

...anyone else noticing a santa hat on their profile page?

Edit: And it's gone? *checks self for hallucinations*

Double edit: Apparently only on my campaign tab.

Oooh, do I get to channel Dinketry?

♫ Goblins?
Do you want to throw a snowball?
Come on, let's go and play!
We never see you anymore
Though you’re Playtest core
And should be here to stay
We used to be best buddies
And now we're not
We wish you would tell us why!
Do you want to throw some snowballs?
They don’t have to be snow balls
“Go away, Skitters!”
Okay, bye

Do you want to throw a snowball?
Play patty-cake around the halls?
It's almost Crystalhue
We have six hands for you
It’s time to throw some balls!
It gets a little lonely
In our separate worlds
Just watching the ships fly by
(rocket-socket-pocket-docket)

Goblins, we know you're in there
Starfinders asking where you've been
We miss your zany goblin songs
Let’s just get along
And let’s begin
We can help each other
That’s how it should be
What are we gonna do?
Do you want to throw some snowballs?

Okay yay! ♫

Merry Christmas, all!

Filk off!

(That's not rude. It's what Hmm and I just did. Get your mind out of the gutter!)

Skittermander Chorus
♫Cold snowballs, Cold snowballs
Snowballs all the way,
Oh what fun it is to throw,
Beating goblins night and day.

Goblin Chorus
Cold snowballs, Cold snowballs
Snowballs all the way,
Oh what fun it is to throw
And make those skitters pay,

Goblin Bard Solo (soprano)
Flying through the air
In a delightful winter's fray
Snow thrown without a care,
Laughing all the way.

Skittermander Envoy Solo (baritone)
Ice on gob-tails sting
We're going to win this fight,
What fun it is to laugh and sing
A snowball song tonight.

Goblin Chorus
Cold snowballs, Cold snowballs
Snowballs all the way,
Oh what fun it is to throw
And make those skitters pay,

Skittermander Chorus
Cold snowballs, Cold snowballs
Snowballs all the way,
Oh what fun it is to throw,
Beating goblins night and day.

(Jingle Bells)
