Countdown to Pathfinder Second Edition

Thursday, July 11, 2019

#CountdownToPathfinder2E

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!

Yeah, you guys accidentally listed Friday the 26th as "Wednesday, July 26", and there's also a misplaced quotation mark after Logan's name in "Playing the Game".

Past Pathfinder Fridays were posted to YouTube on the Official Paizo channel, so probably?

They're also all there on twitch, although I'm not sure if they're marked just for subscribers or if anyone can look back at past episodes (I believe that's a choice the channel can set).

Yep, I can see them on Twitch, and am not a subscriber. And you get to watch the q&a part there, too, which usually gets cut for YouTube.

And if you do want a sub, and can't afford it, I do try to give some away during Oblivion Oath, and I'll try to give some away during these too!

Having just conquered homelessness and finally gotten into a place again, money is needless to say tight! So I am very interested in this. So it's on Twitch?


Show times are at 11 and 12 pm for me... crap XD

I'll still do everything possible to not miss this. This is great news!

Also, hi Payton, and welcome!

I wish you a good time, Payton!

I want to use this happy announcement to inquire about the possibility of twitch representation for august's & september's upcoming "Pathfinder Battles: Legendary Adventures" & "Iconic Heroes prepainted miniatures - the first official Second Edition minis from Wizkids!

As Wizards of the Coast presents their actual miniatures via twitch stream, i was hoping that Paizo would do that too.
Traditionally the computer renders of upcoming miniatures were presented in a weekly blog post, but that seems to have dried up lately.

Thanks and good luck from Germany!

Well typically what I do is give out 5 random subs during the stream, but I'd be happy to unique gift one, if you are on during the stream and give me your twitch name :)

I would love to! What time is the stream? What is your stream called? Though I fear taking away subs from others, but I do greatly appreciate it.


Cool, but like was already stated above, very frustrating since everyone of these events is smack dab in the middle of the Pacific Coast work day, so we won't get a chance to participate and won't get a chance to have a chance to win any of the swag. It would have been nice if the times were varied so that there was an evening event for everyone eligible at least once. Ah well.


It will not be shipped to where I live, so I will watch just for the spoilers, the good thing is that because of time zones the stream will be 5PM here, the exact time I get out of work.

Oh not my stream! Paizo's streams. There's a schedule in the blog post above, and also 12-1 PM Pacific time on Thursdays! You won't take one away, I'll just gift you one in addition to the five randoms

Mountain's Stronghold is an awesome reveal. I love how it not only increases the AC bonus, but also relaxes the max Dex limitation - recognizing that you will probably put an ability increase into Dex at some point.

Most of the stuff they mentioned has been previewed before, as did all the stuff from those monk feat images. We got the names of all the ranger feats but nothing to contextualize them.

Now, we did get a 2 action focus spell for the Elemental Bloodline: Elemental Blast. 10 foot burst within 30 feet, 30 foot cone, 60 foot line. Deals 8d6 bludgeoning damage (or fire damage if your element is fire). It sounds like it is a 5th level focus spell, and heightened 2d6 per spell level. That's pretty decent for something you can recover between fights!

Mountain Stronghold: Allows you to take an action to get 2 more AC until your next turn-- it sounds like by increasing the dex cap upwards.

Ironblood stance: 8th level monk feat. Make iron sweep unarmed attacks that are sweeping, parrying, and brawling, and gives you Resistance 2 to ALL DAMAGE. Sounds like the resistance scales with level too.

Wizard thesis stuff: Improved familiar thesis. Gives you the familiar feat, and it gains an extra ability, and then another extra ability at 6, 12, and 18. (Also the familiar can be used as your Arcane Bond, but that sounds like a flavor thing.)

It both gives you the action and permanently boosts the Dex cap by 1!


I'm glad to see secondary feats in a style providing passive improvements to the basic stance. I saw a lot of wolf/tiger style without tiger slash or wolf drag because 2-action attacks didn't mesh well with flurry and/or hit and run tactics.
