Interact with the Pathfinder Heroic Endeavors Liveplay!

Tuesday, September 6, 2022

Pathfinder Heroic Endeavors is a new, limited-run weekly Pathfinder actual-play live stream featuring a rotating cast of players and GMs (14 and growing). The game is set in a homebrewed world first explored on the Dragons and Things Network that has now been given a home on Paizo's official twitch channel Tuesdays at 6 p.m. Pacific Standard Time (PST). Each episode, the licensed heroes of Heroic Endeavors Incorporated risk life and limb to protect the people of Cavaloshia at reasonable rates unmatched by “other” adventuring companies. Every episode offers a complete adventure arc, allowing new viewers to tune in any time Heroic Endeavors is live without missing a beat.

Pathfinder Heroic Endeavors: Series Premiere!


We’ve already produced four episodes and you can find them archived on the Heroic Endeavors Playlist on YouTube. We are working on uploading all the episodes to podcast too!

Heroic Endeavors also uses some technical production features you might enjoy! The liveplay features four Blackmagic Studio cameras, one PTZ Overhead “Dice Cam,” and complete lighting control. Viewers can experience interactive elements like Cinematic Mode, which removes all on-screen graphics and immerses the viewer in a more dramatic point of view by changing the lighting, color correction, and aspect ratio.

You can Toss a Coin and give 1 gp to a player of your choice or grant 1 Hero Point to the group pool. The cast members read comments live and have select "Comment Breaks" to help make sure the game and the break from immersion happen at only key intervals to avoid any undue interruptions to the storytelling.

Even better, all interactive elements can be activated by chat for free using channel points. Some have the ability to be purchased via donations that support TheDaTNetwork, an independent fan-supported endeavor. (We are producing the show financially, but ‘tis fun to show your gratitude to the players, yes?) All donate options offer the ability to use channel points as a free alternative. The cast members are always happy to receive financial support from fans but believe strongly that donations should not prohibit anyone from engaging with the liveplay’s content.

Heroic Endeavors plans to add even more interactive elements as the story unfolds. The cast members seek to balance gameplay and interaction to create an experience unlike any other that Paizo has offered to date on Twitch!

Congrats on the new home!

Question for those familiar with The DaTNetwork:
Is there a particular reason why maps are not used? I have only watched a few shows here and there, but it looks like maps are never used. Just curious. Thanks!

They certainly have in the past as they have helped us produce pandemic-safer virtual games in the last few years. This show was envisioned as more theater of the mind. Starfinder Drift Crisis is up next and will showcase a difference style of play. There are pros and cons to different styles so I hope to bring you options next year.

Thanks for the reply Aaron! I was mainly curious, and now I will be on lookout for the ones where they use maps.
