Has any big news come out of the convention so far?

Because of the schedule, there won't be many announcements until the banquet tonight


From here.

Sweet - PaizoCon Preview Banquet. One of the things I most look forward to at PaizoCon. The food is fine, but we have about 50 tables full of rabid Paizonians cheering on the latest news is pretty sweet. Sadly, I can't ever describe the experience properly...forgive me.

I'm sitting at a table with Nani & Kyle Pratt (former yahoos of GA), David Shaw (current yahoo of GA), Jesper Ejsing (artist for the Emerald Spire, LoF AP), Sarah Robinson, & Chris Self. I cant complain. I thought I saw Kyle Baird at another table, but it was just a stack of plates.

Erik and Lisa open up the Preview with talking about the staff and what Paizo is doing and where they are going. It's amazing how much love they have for their teams. It's good to see.

JBulmahn to the mic to discuss the iconics and the new release. (You'll probably find better and more info on the Paizo Blog.) He discusses the Advanced Class Guide. Each class has 4 pages of archetypes.

Jason liked the Magus because it blended two classes together. (Remember the glorious PFS maguses from yestermods, do you?) The Skald looks pretty hot. A new spell, bulletward, will stop gunslinger bullets.

Fall book: Monster Codex. 20 iconic monsters...much more info: ecology, new rules, unique spells, etc. Much like the Adv Race Guide & stat blocks. King and Queen Fire Giants look pretty vicious. If you're into artwork, it's gorgeous. (They have 3 huge display screens and they look great.)

Next book: Strategy Guide - late 2014. For the new players, help them learn the basics. Walks new players through the basics - combats, turns, etc. (I thought I saw a picture of Kyle Baird, but it was really just a smudged page number.)

Spring 2015: Pathfinder Unchained: 256 pages of WTF? Uhm..."what if the rules team could do whatever they wanted". It's a new set of rules and different things they could do stuff they wanted to do. New Summoner. Fixed Rogue. Full BAB Monk.

JB calls the book 'a playground'....you can use parts or all of it for a different experience.


any news on CS stuff, or will we have to wait for tomorrow for any of that.

Kind of surprised Unchained isn't the Gencon release.

Unchained almost sounds like a stealth update to Pathfinder. Or maybe a trial for a future edition down the road?

Well, it's supposedly a change in the backwards compatability mode, or, as Wolfgang Baur described it on Twitter:

"In spring 2015.... Pathfinder Unchained. Rules team goes wild, backward compatibility be damned! New rogue, monk with full BAB, summoner...."

Given it's a book of optional rules/subsystems, doesn't suprise me that it's put in the alternate slot

2 people marked this as a favorite.

Pathfinder Unchained sounds like a spiritual successor to Unearthed Arcana.

I did a full write up of all the notes I took at the banquet. You can find it here: LINK.

You can also find all the pictures my wife took here: Link for Paizocon photos. There are lots of images of art. I apologize that the photos of book pages are not readable. We were hoping, but the pictures on the screen were already fuzzy, so getting them to come out on an iPhone was almost impossible. Apparently Ravingdork is working on cleaning them up. If he is successful I will post a link to those here as well.

I'm not too terribly keen on the Giant Slayer name, but feel like maybe it could be improved in the same way Wrath's was.

Been done, of course, but, still.

Giant Slayer sounds like the name of a heavy metal album; not that I see that as a bad thing tho
