Question about adventure paths


Pathfinder Adventure Path General Discussion


Does anyone know if James or Erik has said anything about the possibility of doing AP's like in Starfinder where they have some that are 6 issues, and some that are 3?
I think it would be fantastic if they had three adventure paths per year. The first one would be 6 issues. And then two 3 issue paths the last half of the year.
Does anyone else like this idea?

Paizo dropped the 3-part AP thing in Starfinder, so I take it that the idea didn't work commercially.

They haven't actually said anything about dropping it just that they had already several next APs planned out during time they were doing 3 part experiment. So no clue if they are going to do it again or not

"We have no plans to do X in near future, but we'll let you know when we do it!" is how companies communicate "X didn't work, unless the market changes, it's off the table".

And the last I heard Paizo actually talk about 3-part APs was at Paizocon with them stating that making 2x3-part AP was far more resource-consuming than making one 6-part one. Which means I'd be really surprised if they do any again and hoping for them is in the "maybe hardcover Second Darkness soon?" category.

Could be yeah, but Paizo has been pretty transparent about certain formats not working :p


I dunno... companies have to be careful when saying something that I could phrase as "generally, people didn't like it." because that gets the people that did like it throwing a fit more often than not.

Oversized modules like the upcoming The Dead God's Hand feel like they could work in the same niche as the hypothetical 3-part AP, without messing with subscriber numbers on what has always been touted as Paizo's bread-and-butter line. We'll have to wait and see.

Yea. Even just great big adventure modules would work.

I love the APs. I just don't have time to play a 20 level path by the time the next one comes out (and don't get me wrong, I think it's awesome that they go to level 20). And sometimes people will commit to a 10 level game more easily.

I'd even love a series of big modules that can be connected, but don't have to be. I dunno. I was just thinking onto the keyboard. Figured I'd see what people thought/said.
