Knights of Everflame.

Paizo has teamed up with our friends at Geek and Sundry to produce an 8-episode series for Pathfinder Second Edition!

“Five strangers board a caravan heading to Lastwall, an ancient kingdom watching over the grave of a long dead menace. Signed up as conscripts in the army, they face years of training and service, but as smoke begins to rise from the horizon they must come together as friends if they are to have any chance at survival.”

Game Master Jason Bulmahn leads an amazing cast of adventurers into the heart of darkness every Tuesday from 4-7 p. Pacific. Your #KnightsOfEverflame are:

Left to right: Erika Fermina, Rachel Seeley, Aki, Jason Bulmahn, Gina DeVivo, and Jeremy Steven Walker

Jason Bulmahn (@JasonBulmahn) got his start in gaming administering the Living Greyhawk campaign, but soon after was hired as the Managing Editor of Dragon magazine. After the end of the magazine’s print run, Jason became the Lead Designer of the Pathfinder Roleplaying Game. Now, as Paizo’s Director of Game Design, he leads the team behind Pathfinder Second Edition. He is also an experienced Game Master, writing and running the Oblivion Oath, a Pathfinder Actual Play stream on Twitch, and the Knights of Everflame, a new series for Geek and Sundry.

Gina DeVivo (@PocketGina) is your friendly neighborhood RPG craft wizard. Having been in the entertainment industry since she was 11 years old means she's got some groovy stories from the sets of Madmen, Scrubs, and Hannah Montana to name a few. Lately, she's been three character sheets stacked in a trench coat on Geek & Sundry's Callisto 6, Shield Of Tomorrow, and TBD RPG. If podcasts are your jam you can find her providing the voices of Windsgar the goblin on Plunders and Blunders and lover of magic, Olive, on Champions of the Earth. Also, minty things make her sneeze.

Jeremy Steven Walker (@JwalkerScene) is an American actor originally from Memphis, Tennessee. His first television appearance came by way of a national commercial for Crocs that aired during the 2008 Summer Olympics. Since then, Jeremy’s resume has grown considerably, as he has starred in over thirty film and television productions, several award nominated stage plays, and dozens of worldwide and national commercial campaigns. Quoted by film producer, Mark G. Mathis (Precious, Brick, The Identical) as "an extraordinary talent with recognizable star quality," Jeremy's dynamic on camera presence and effortless charm have helped solidify his place as one of the film industry's top actors to watch.

Aki (@MxGiniInABottle) is a recent transplant to Los Angeles and is a relative newcomer to the world of online RPG-E, though they have been rolling dice and playing tabletop games since university. Their most recent on-screen work includes New Pantheon, a Scion game on Saving Throw Show, and a guest spot on Geek & Sundry’s Callisto 6!

Erika Fermina (@astylepixie) is an actress, stylist, and fantasy enthusiast. You can sometimes spot her on a commercial but usually she’s playing games with Girls Guts Glory!

Rachel Seeley (@Sunnyseeley) is a fan of all Tabletop RPGs and an actress is always ecstatic to combine the two. She has appeared on G&S before playing on Tales from the Loop, Weave, the Critical Role anniversary prequel and GMing on Weave!

Chris Fishel (@AKAthefish) grew up on the sets of sitcom television from the time he was seven years old where he discovered his true passion for storytelling and fell in love with making feature films. 25 feature films later Mr. Fishel brought his talent for narrative storytelling into the RPG-E space in September 2017 when he joined the team at Geek and Sundry. After producing shows like Starter Kit, Painters Guild and Game Masters Hall, Mr. Fishel is proud to be the Director and producer of the new The Knights of Everflame series.

Knights of Everflame airs every Tuesday through September 17. If you miss an episode on Twitch, you’ll be able to catch the replays one week after the premiere.

When: Every Tuesday from 4-7 p.m. Pacific through September 17
Where: Geek & Sundry on Twitch (also hosted on the OfficialPaizo Twitch channel)
Replays: Weekly on the Geek and Sundry YouTube channel

I'm 6 foot, 7 inches tall. We were all standing I'm afraid. The photographer even asked if I could duck down a bit.

I'm sorry but WHAT?!?!

I've only ever seen you sitting down behind a GM screen or doing lore interviews! I had no idea you were 6 foot 7 inches! You just blew my mind!

Now we know why Paizo uses portrait GM Screens.

I don't know, I sympathize with Wayne here. Nothing wrong with not being familiar with RPG streams and the like (which aren't necessarily cohesive genre, some focusing on dramatic roleplaying, some focusing on crunch and procedural discussion). Especially weird for Paizo to assume familiarity with stuff like that and terms like RPG-E, while their communications otherwise seem focused on audience with almost no assumed familiarity with Pathfinder RPG. As he said, just clearly stating the premise that it was about high-drama professional acting roleplaying would have been clearer to broader audience. Obviously commercialization of niches via streaming and resulting consumer marketing terms like RPG-E or "Nerd Culture" is present reality unto itself, but not being familiar with them is no personal flaw, and IMHO seems strange for Paizo website given it isn't needed to enjoy RPG hobby. I don't really know why people reacted so strongly to his posts here, which simply sounded like somebody who didn't understand the concepts and wasn't positively attached to them... so what?

I think he also had broader point that wasn't specific to the dramatic roleplay streams per se, but was about more informational communications. Certainly I have seen quite a bit of information about the game etc being communicated only via streams, and only posted to this site by effort of fans making transcripts/synopsis etc. It's not a stretch to say that not that long ago, Paizo would not communicate info like that, they centered their communications much more on own site, in 100% textual form. I mean, Paizo themself have discussed how their communications focus has shifted to other "social media". I don't see what's wrong with somebody saying they prefer information-dense textual formats of communication, doesn't mean Paizo has to drop what they're doing everywhere else, it's just an honest opinion. "We're not moving away from text because we are still printing a rule book" is just such an evasive dishonest response, I mean if 100% of info communication was still delivered by text, nobody would be posting transcripts in the forums, right?

Folk,

The means of communicating with all of you are always changing. Blogs, messageboards, and press releases are useful tools, but streams, videos, and live play events are also quite valuable as well, reaching entirely new audiences. We are still learning our way through these environments, and it's easy to make small mistakes (like assuming everyone knows the jargon).

This event is a very new thing for us, especially at this scale. It's not going to be everyone's preferred form of entertainment, and that's ok, but that doesn't mean we still aren't excited about it.

We hope you will check it out. If not, no worries, we have a lot of other things we will be sharing with all of you in the coming days, weeks, and months.

I honestly can't wait to see this... so it's only 8 episodes, right? Jason, any chance that this, too, could be published in some shape or form, maybe even as an official adventure?

And by the way, that is a pretty strong, emotional and interesting premise for a campaign! :)

There's always a chance. It'd largely depend on how well received the actual play series is. The opportunity cost for such a conversion is high, however, as the time needed to write this or any other adventure up in a publishable form is greater than the time it would take to outline, run, and air a second actual play series. Then again, if this show gets millions of dedicated viewers like other live play series have, who know?


Should I assume that's a no to the podcast availability?

That is entirely in Geek and Sundry's court. They are the ones hosting the content.

I really have never been into "E-RPG", until I heard GCP with Jason and Erik at Paizocon. Because that was so amusing, I will probably give this a try!

Let's hope it does happen! I think Oblivion Oath has been a stellar show and a magnificent campaign I'd love to run myself; I was on the fence [with 2E] before I started to watch it, and Jason & crew ("Still in initiative and still in our hearts!") convinced me that I'd probably love the new system. And the more I've seen of 2e has proved that I'm indeed going to like it, a lot! :)

I just love to watch great GMs via streams, because you can learn so much from them! I admire Jason for many qualities as a GM, but I've recently realized that very few gamemasters can combine elements of both high and low fantasy as flawlessly as he does into a coherent and exciting storyline. :)

Will there be a season 3?
