We’re now well past the 1-year mark for social distancing, working from home, and other ways to deal with the ongoing pandemic, and that means we’ve all had a long time to start Pathfinder and Starfinder games on virtual tabletops (VTTs), like Astral, d20Pro, Fantasy Grounds, Foundry Virtual Tabletop, and Roll20. As we approach our second virtual PaizoCon next month, I wanted to give an update on some of the progress we’ve made in making distanced play easier for both players and GMs.
We’ve long had partnerships with Astral, d20Pro, Fantasy Grounds, and Roll20, and each continues to support both our games to varying degrees. Starting today, we also offer premium content for Foundry Virtual Tabletop as well. The community has done an incredible job of supporting Pathfinder and Starfinder using the OGL and Community Use Policy, but we thought it made sense to offer more official content for those who want it.
You can purchase the first five Pathfinder Bounties for $5 each right now, and we’re looking into how we can add more great Foundry-compatible modules in the future! These are something of a test for us, as they’re converted internally (rather than by someone at Foundry Virtual Tabletop) and are hosted here on the Paizo store. Let us know how the process works and what other premium content you’d like to see and we’ll build out a plan to expand our offerings.
We’re continuing to look into our options for getting more accessories like item cards, pawn/token sets, and other products you’ve all come to expect from both Pathfinder and Starfinder onto our various VTT partners’ stores, so let us know what you want to see and we’ll try to make it happen.
Regardless of how much longer we’re all living under the restrictions of the pandemic, VTTs are here to stay, and we want to make it as easy as possible for you to enjoy our many Pathfinder and Starfinder products on them for years to come.
