Something coming August 18?

Paizo posted the following as a QRT on a post from their own official account congratulating the success of Journeys Through the Radiant Citadel, and I thought it was curious enough to share:

If you want to lift up diverse stories and voices in #ttrps, you’ll love what we have planned for August 18.

While I love the sound of what it’s promising - the biggest allure of PF2 for me is how it’s moved beyond traditional fantasy inspirations for more diverse sources - I’m pretty surprised by this. Paizo doesn’t often do things on a random mid-month Thursday, and the 18th is the date of Wizards Presents, WotC’s big news blast for what they have coming out next. It feels a little strange to compete with your main competitor for the spotlight, but I’ll admit that my interest is piqued.

What do y’all think?

I couldn't care less about it being a day where there's something for DND too, but Im excited about this teased announcement, fingers crossed for Tian Xia!

Also quietly hopeful for a Tian Xia announcement.

I'd love this - and have argued that it's likely coming! - but dropping the news on a day where the TTRPG space online is already going to be flooded with big 5e news is confusing to me. Why not do your big reveal at Gen Con, two weeks prior, when you're already announcing cool new stuff that pairs with it?


Violence for violence?

It could be another Paizo product for 5e. Maybe Strength of Thousands?


Tomorrow’s the big day, and I still don’t even know where to look for this news. Will there be a stream? A blog post?

I'd say a blog post but...gestures at the playtest

Perhaps they found out it's the 30th anniversary of my first date with my wife.

There is a "Starfinder Gen Con 2022" presentation live on Youtube now. I came here hoping to find out more about it, as I don't have the time to tune into it now.

Never mind -- it is just a replay of one of the Gen Con presentations, as they had one on Pathfinder yesterday and the keynote address earlier. So I have no idea what if anything Paizo might be presenting today.

It seems there’s a new Humble Bundle: Link.

That other game we don't mention is releasing a bunch of stuff today. Watching the video on it now and man does it sound like that other game is taking a lot of inspiration from PF 2e.

Hope Paizo makes whatever announcement the have soon.

If it’s “just” this (not that a cut-rate bundle of awesome material isn’t plenty!), I’ll be a little bummed, but it does seem to fit.

Eh, my own fault for having such high hopes today. But I'm definitely gonna throw at least $25 for all of those adventures!

I was thinking to myself Age if Ashes is the only AP I don't own. I wish there was a humble bundle with it. This doesn't meet the mark but it's a great deal for those that dont own that content.

It is the Humble Bundle. Tough crowd. I think making $400 of material more accessible is something to love. Fans seem to agree. But I am confident the toughest crowd will like what we have planned in the months and years to come. Adventures Ahead.


Pathfinder Roleplaying Game Superscriber

Honestly, I'd been wondering when the next one would be! I have most of the books, but it's always a good chance to grab some codes and toss them at people who are interested, but not yet committed.

Also... I AM missing some of those maps and such...

My first thought when seeing that bundle was "Holy Iomedae, that is an incredible deal! And for charity, no less." Tian Xia or Arcadia announcements are always welcome, but I'm spiffing excited at the opportunity for Mwangi adventures to reach more and more people. Hopefully we'll get to return to the Magaambya before too long. Best of fortune to ya'll, and hope this thing is wildly successful in elevating people's lives. Mwangi Expanse/Strength of Thousands and its creators deserve a very long afterglow in social, masterpiece of a release that the whole shebang was. Great stuff as always!

Seconding this!

No shade meant, Aaron - it’s a phenomenal bundle, and I’m glad to see that content get into more hands (and support a good cause!). It’s just easy for an overactive imagination to run a little wild :>

Don't be too disheartened Aaron, I think it's mostly that people on these boards tend to be ongoing customers and subscribers, so they tend to already own the existing publications that they're interested in.

To be fair, I don't recall there being any mention that Paizo would have anything as big as what Wizards would be presenting yesterday. Humble Bundle would be a bigger deal if they hadn't done it several times before -- but I do have to give them credit for doing it yet again. I just wish I had the patience to hold out long enough for one of these bundles to be a good deal for me.

It is a freaking epic deal, don't get me wrong.... But I've been all in on 2e content so..... other than the bounties there's not a lot for me there.

Great job on putting together a starter kit for people getting into 2e though, lots of great content in it

Grabbed the bundle myself to fill in some of the volumes of SoT I was missing. I'm so glad to see how much love the Mwangi Expanse has received in this edition!

I can confirm that Strength of Thousands is one of the best APs for 2nd edition and I highly recommend them.
