I really love the One Shot line for Pathfinder. Currently, there are four products listed, and no new ones announced. I brought them to my local group, and people love them and run them all the time. Will there be any new additions to this product line soon?

I feel the same. They are the perfect solution when one of my five players cannot attend a session that it is critical their character be at.

I've been running pathfinder society scenarios for this very purpose. It's been alot of fun!

Would love to see more of these. Each one has been progressively better than the last. The last one with Red Mantis was phenomenal.

I concur. Do you concur?

I’ve done this twice for my group. Sundered Waves was excellent, but there is no way Lionlodge is a 1-session adventure.

Still planning on trying the other two though.

Yeah Lionlodge took my group like 1.5 sessions.

Both Mark of the Mantis and Lionlodge easily fill two sessions when thye GM loves to pad their adventures a bit and players love to roleplay. I feel that both Head Shot the Rot and Sundered Waves are better run condensed to one session. With Sundered Waves - at least for me - clearly being the weakest of the line.

But happy to read that so may people love the One Shots. Paizo, do more of them, please!!

Yep, for context to what keftiu said here if you don't like giving social media websites any more undeserved traffic... Paizo officially announced just today that they are no longer creating or publishing ANY one-shot modules for at least the foreseeable future.

They included this announcement along with a message to point people in the direction of the Pathfinder Infinite program for all of their one-shot needs so I think it is PRETTY definitive that this isn't something we should expect from Paizo for quite a while, if not in perpetuity.


Make your one-shot in Infinite, ofcourse.

For reference, these were a line of virtual products. No print. The concept was to make the VTT version in-house and sell the PDF in addition to that - but now that VTT versions are made at a higher quality by third parties, the line is redundant.

That's sad, I liked them all a lot. Though I guess I do have Dark Archive for my reserve of "don't want to cancel this session" adventures.

Really sad to see this go. IMO the line's not redundant just because they're branching into other VTT options. None of the one-shots would've ever made it as a bounty/scenario and AP's turned VTT are 10x the length. They were able to be thematically cool and experimental in ways none of the other product lines are. I don't expect them to reconsider but super disappointed.

Well that's a bummer. Maybe I'll convert some PFS scenarios to fill the same purpose in my games.

Good to see that Paizo is making announcements about their products on social media rather than their own website. :-/

I also just used Social media to express my wish that the line continue. Please do so as well.

Too few people knew about the one shots, but everybody who does, loves them.


what they could do is what I bought for Numenera. a book with 10 instant adventures but they aren't written out in detail. Just the main NPC's/monsters a few images/maps and in short the idea of the story and where the key components to advance the story could be found/won.
That way the DM has all he needs for a quick setup and they have minimal effort to do.

Asside from that I understand the shift with the future of VTT's. But it would be nice then if they would start recycling old PF adventures to 2E in VTT or at the very least start bringing their adventures from pathfinder society to VTT (in my case Foundry)
