Organized Play Events

Organized Play has arrived in force for Gen Con Online! We have more than 250 tables of Pathfinder and Starfinder Society play. Just like at Gen Con Indy, we’ll be launching Pathfinder Society’s Year of Boundless Wonder with three new scenarios, as well as two new Starfinder Society scenarios!

Our full catalog can be viewed on Gen Con’s website; there are plenty of seats at our tables for last-minute signups!

We’ll also be running our brand-new interactive specials concurrently with Gen Con Indy! Starfinder Society Special #4-99: A Time of Crisis will have its second-ever run on Friday night at 5 p.m. Pacific; 8 p.m. Eastern, and Pathfinder Society Special #3-98: Expedition into Pallid Peril will be run for the very first time ever on Saturday night at the same time. We’d love to have you join us as we work to break our own records for most concurrent tables.

Trying to click on this blog post completely broke the website for five minutes for me.

Other than that - exciting stuff! I'm a little surprised we haven't gotten a playtest announcement/hype blog yet.

Based on the lineup, I think the formal announcement will come at the Keynote on Thursday or the PF/LO panel on Friday. Or maybe the plates will be announced on Thursday and we'll be given hints on Friday.

WOW, seems like a lot less than other years, and no live group plays either??

I'm sure the ones we have will be fun, maybe if less panels make em longer perhaps, something to think about Paizo!!

See you all there in every panel as usual, good times ahead!!

Sorry Tom, I did not have the capacity to plan more this year. This year I’ll be at the physical con and not at home to shepherd the online con. Note: Find the Path is the live play this year. And Glass Cannon will play a one shot from Dark Archive, but on their channel.

Last year I had Tonya doing a tremendous amount of organizing support for the online con. But now that we have both a physical and online con, her focus went to the physical, along with many others, but especially Mike Webb and Whitney Catterjee.

We have 12 hours of panels last year, as this year, but a portion of those who would be on panels will instead be at the physical con and unavailable. We could not get a room to stream from at the physical con. So our available staff for panels is less. Plus we’ve lost Ron L., Patrick R., Jason T., Jason K., and Mark M. recently.

We’ll have fresh editorial members and a bigger marketing team to get to know very soon. But for now, temporarily, we are spread thin and allocating resources differently than last year.

I know the panels will be valuable and fun and you all will support the moderators and panelists while I’m on the floor at Gen Con.

Adventures Ahead!


@Aaron: has Mark Moreland left Paizo, or taken a different role? His profile says he is the Director of Brand Strategy? Or do you mean a different Mark M?

No, I meant Mark S. Sorry. ;)

Ah yes, makes sense. I was just musing yesterday over the MS of Mark Seifter/Michael Sayre. You guys have really been blessed by the mechanical genius of those two, not to mention their community engagement acumen. I hope Michael can hang around for a long time (selfishly) or as long as it is good for him!


That moment when I would love to be fluent in English to be able to enjoy the event better... in any case, I'll try to adjust the schedules to honor the event!


Thanks Aaron, nice to see whats going on behind the Paizo curtain these days bud :)

Have fun on the floor and I'll miss chatting live with ya in the streams!!

I'm disappointed at Meligaster art being shown in dark archive part of keynote but that art not being in dark archive book x'D I wonder if it got cut from book or was from another project and accidentally shown here?
