Pathfinder 3-action game night

Pathfinder Second Edition promises to be easier to learn, faster to play, and to offer the deep character customization that we all love. Let’s prove it! Join us at OfficialPaizo on Twitch for "3-Action Game Night" this Friday on August 23rd from 1 p.m. to 6 p.m. Pacific. We'll make four new characters, design fresh encounters, and play them - all in one session!

YOU get you to be involved in the process!

That's right, by joining us live on Twitch, you become the deciding factor in what we play, what we fight, and where we adventure. And it's only going to take you 3 actions!

Black one action symbol

YOU get to make the characters!

For two hours, live on Twitch, we will open the floor for you to vote on what characters our four Paizo co-workers will play. You design them, and whatever they are, we play them!

Black one action symbol

YOU get to pick the monsters!

Bust out your Bestiary and your imagination as we show you how easily Game Masters can create encounters. You will choose the creatures, location, theme, and a map. Then, Jason Bulmahn will take your choices and craft the adventuring session!

Black one action symbol

Now we play!

Watch as we sit down and play through the session that YOU created with some of our developers and designers! Who will they be? Will you make them completely outrageous characters? What optimizations have you discovered? Will they fight a sizeable dangerous foe, or perhaps an army? It's all on you!

So be sure to join us for 3-Action Game Night on Friday, August 23rd, from 1 p.m. to 6 p.m. Pacific and help us Unleash Your Hero!

I'll ask them to do a mutagenist. I want to see how the alchemist will perform without Research Field features...

I endorse this plan, if only to get us a preview of what features they intend a Mutagenist to have. Or some Alchemist with Str 10 in order to see how they intend the Bulk situation to work for them.

Both on one Alchemist is probably not cool, though.

And also, seeing an Alchemist played would be neat.


I don't really know how twitch works, so I won't be able to participate but this will be fun to watch I bet.

I would also like to see an alchemist played.

I concur, as long as the ask is presented in a good faith manner, in the way I believe DMW is presenting it.

Absolutely. I think they have every intention of fixing both those things, and that they may well both constitute typos as much as anything. But I'm super curious what those fixes look like, and think having them play an Alchemist who needs to use them is a great way to maybe get a look.

I'm excited to be a part of this! I'm looking forward to fun ideas because I want to do a silly voice!


Pathfinder Card Game Subscriber

Very cool, helpful, and exciting!


Think i will be tuning in for this.

Grand Lodge

Pathfinder Adventure Path, Starfinder Adventure Path, Starfinder Roleplaying Game Subscriber

I'll tune in for as much of this as I can, which is unlikely to be much given my commute to a game I'm headed to. And I'm pleased that I'm not the only one whose response was "Twitch Plays Pathfinder."


I certainly want to see an alchemist. Preferably a mutagenist but I'll take a low str any other alchemist.
Also kind of want to see a cleric of a TN God, ideally not Nethys. Or a TN divine sorcerer. Any divine without any access to the aligned spells, really.
The ones that worry me or that would give us some answers and hints as to what's to come. Or would help me understand some things.
Beyond that, I'm up for anything. Is this going to be level 1 characters?

Either way, I'm intrigued, and will try to show up... at least for the early bits of it.

We nearly went with that as the name, but technically we will be the ones playing and I didn't want to mislead folk.

I can't make it on friday but you folks better make these jerks play an all bard party.

Dark Archive

It would be a very interesting stream if a paizo employee taught PF2 to a group of non-RPG players. PF2 is lauded for its ease of learning and playing. It would be fascinating to see it in action.

Sovereign Court

Sounds like fun, but Friday night is my own game night. I'll be sure to watch the YouTube video of it later

Sneak in some unreleased content here and it gets extra fun. I’d love to see little mechanical previews!


Sounds like a HECTIC session! I hope your Twitch chat moderator is nimble! Definitely tuning in for this! Should be a riot.

This'll be fun.
I want the mto make an Alchemist so I can see how I build vs them. (Also to see how they opt to read certain confusing details)

Its my fav class. Would be neat to see.

if higher level I'd love to see an Aid focussed bard or someone who dipped bard for inspire competeence and combines that with aid in combat too.

i will be at work during most of this and will probably not be able to watch live , will it be posted online after the fact?

It is always up on https://www.twitch.tv/officialpaizo right after they stop recording.

i find that by the time i have a chance to watch on twitch they have usually taken it down


Participating in this requires a Twitch subscription, right? How much do those usually cost and are there any deals or anything?


I believe twitch is $5 a month unless they made it more expensive at some point. If you happen to have an Amazon Prime subscription I believe that includes a free twitch subscription every month as well.

Not that Im aware of, just need to follow the page.

No subscription required, but subscribing gets you access to on demand videos and extra emojis. There are often gift subs given out during streams as well! $5 for basic tier, $10 for the next level and $25 for third level, or as mentioned Amazon Prime gives you one for free every month.


So I just need a free Twitch account to participate, as opposed to a paid one? Great! I was always sort of curious why I could watch the streams in an incognito window without logging in, if Twitch required a subscription and was sort of sheepish as to wondering if that was an exploit.

Video is not my preferred medium if that wasn't abundantly clear already.

They actually keep them forever. You just need to fiddle around on OfficialPaizo until you find it. That's sometimes tricky, but they are there, I assure you.

A semi important question for considering what beasties to suggest, is what level of characters will they be running? And also what we might suggest for characters, based on what we can 'reach' for options.

If you go to their videos section on Twitch and change the sort to 'All Videos' instead of 'Past Broadcasts' it opens up the whole backlog. I'm not sure why their past broadcasts section is so limited though.

Twitch is generally always free to watch live. Recordings occasionally require subscriptions depending on the streamer's choice. Chat can be toggled between Sub-only mode and open to everyone by the streamer, so that may or may not require a sub from stream to stream. By default, the only thing a subscription grants is emotes to use in chat and I think no ads in an individual streamer's channel.


From my experience, you need neither a twitch account, nor do you need to watch it live to see it on twitch. At least the stuff from Paizo. Other channels may vary. I actually have no internet access in my burrow, so I go to the community watering hole and download it via mystical means and watch it home with my burrow-mate and pup.

We are going live here in just a few minutes!

You can watch all the action RIGHT HERE


Watching this live, what a great idea. This could be THE promotional tool for PF2, you can imagine as they release more & more options making crazier characters every week, you couldn't highlight the USP of Pathfinder better.

two characters to go, help us make then make a mutegenist alchemist

Just an fyi, you can set Twitch to audio only in the settings

What a hoot. Everyone was a lot of fun. The mutagenist Alchemist though seemed pretty far behind the rest of the characters. Goblin shark barbarian was brutal!

Chat was genuinely uncooperative with the alchemist, since I think the stat line was 12 Str, 14 Dex, 16 Con, 18 Int, 12 Wis, 8 Cha. Which is almost doable as a bomber, but the mutagenist would want to swap Con and Str there.

Dr. Heckle spent more time dying than making actions. I don't know if I'd believe that would have changed with a 16 STR and a 12 Con. The class seems to have no survivability and was greatly out shone by the shark barbarian.

Granted, those were tough encounters against high AC creatures all around, but I think a lot of people wanted to see how a mutagenist would perform at low levels, and the answer was: not well. Which is too bad because Cosmo did a great job giving it flavor.

The dice have to be given credit here as well. Jason overall rolled amazingly well, while the players usually crapped out.

It was astonishing to see just how badly they rolled.
