Pathfinder Playtest #1 Starts Today

Tell Paizo how "The Lost Star" went at

The first of seven Pathfinder Playtest adventures officially began today. The Lost Star runs through August 26 as part of Paizo's multi-month, worldwide, free playtest of Pathfinder Second Edition. Paizo needs player feedback to make one of the world's best fantasy RPGs even better.

The Lost Star is an adventure for four 1st-level characters. Paizo's Director of Game Design Jason Bulmahn gave a spoiler-free introduction to the adventure, "A noblewoman's vault in Magnimar is pillaged and you are tasked with recovering a lost family heirloom. Can you find it in time for her to visit the Swallowtail Festival?"
