Countdown to Pathfinder Second Edition

Thursday, July 11, 2019


Hello! Allow me to introduce myself. I am Payton Smith, Paizo's new Social Media Producer. While I’ve only been here a few weeks, I’ve been working closely with the creative team to harness the excitement of Pathfinder Second Edition. The drive and passion I've seen to create a version of Pathfinder that is easier to learn, faster to play, and yet endlessly customizable is inspiring. It is now my privilege to share their enthusiasm with all of you on the official Paizo Twitch channel!

Starting this Friday, and throughout the next three weeks, please join me as I bring our designers to the camera to talk about Pathfinder Second Edition, live. Throughout the stream, we encourage you to come on over and ask us your burning questions. We will also be giving away SWAG to select stream participants, and if we get 500+ concurrent viewers, we will also give away a Pathfinder Second Edition Core Rulebook to one or more viewers! See the eligibility note below for more details.

Three items on a grey fabric surface. On the left, an open dicebag with shiny Fumbus coins spilling out. In the center, the Pathfinder 2E core rulebook. On the right, a number of Pathfinder lanyards. A close-up of the Fumbus coins from the first picture. They are a brassy looking coin with Fumbus the goblin engraved on them. Above him, the word Pathfinder curves along the edge of the coin. Below him, the words Second Edition 2019.

Here's the schedule (all times Pacific):

"Character Creation" with Mark Seifter
Friday, July 12th, 1:00 p.m. - 2:00 p.m.

Pick the brain of Designer Mark Seifter as he explains Pathfinder Second Edition's extensive character customization system. How do you determine stats? What choices do you have? What kind of classes are there? How customizable are they?

"Playing the Game" with Logan Bonner
Wednesday, July 17, 1:00 p.m. - 2:00 p.m.

We all need to know the basics of how to play and how Pathfinder Second Edition makes your gaming experience more streamlined and intuitive. That's where Logan Bonner comes in. Logan will be showing off combat, magic, exploration, the action economy, and more. Get into the nitty-gritty of Pathfinder Second Edition's game mechanics.

"Advancing Your Character" with Stephen Radney-MacFarland
Friday, July 19, 1:00 p.m. - 2:00 p.m.

So now that you've been playing your character, overcoming hazards, slaying monsters, and gaining experience throughout your adventures, how does leveling work? Senior Designer Stephen Radney-MacFarland will join me to elaborate on how your character concept can be brought up to the next level. How do you add skills and feats? Maybe you'd like to multiclass? You don't want something generic, you want something that's uniquely your own. You're going to love the tremendous amount of customization and paths you have to explore during the leveling process!

"The World as We Know it" with James Jacobs
Wednesday, July 24, 1:00 p.m. - 2:00 p.m.

What is in store for your character in the world of Golarion in the Age of Lost Omens? We will start with the basics and grow from there with Pathfinder Creative Director James Jacobs to elaborate on the detailed countries, biomes, creatures, and stories available for you to explore--including our first adventure path for Second Edition: Age of Ashes.

"Running the Game" with Jason Bulmahn
Friday, July 26, 1:00 p.m. - 2:00 p.m.

Who motivates the monsters? Who controls the villagers asking you for help? Will the dangerous red dragon kidnap the helpless maiden? Why does this darn key keep bringing our party such bad luck? Jason Bulmahn will be sitting with me and demonstrating how to wield the cosmic power as a Game Master in Pathfinder Second Edition!

The clock is ticking. Gen Con 2019 and the launch of Pathfinder Second Edition release is soon. Learn a thing or two about this amazing game as we count down to #Pathfinder2E!

But all you did was take all the PF1E scenario's and changed the game mechanics over to second edition.


NOW it's like "Yeah I remember this scenario this type of creature is behind this door." or " yeah the murderer is the town guard captain." (THEY DO NOT EVEN LOOK FOR THE CLUES ANYMORE.)

Are you sure that's what's going on? My PF2 scenarios aren't rehashed PF1 scenarios.

I think this is a miscommunication issue, rather than a genuine policy shift.
