And So It Begins

Paizo - Thu, 08/17/2017 - 23:00

And So It Begins

Thursday, August 17, 2017

It's about time we wrap-up our previews for the Starfinder Society Roleplaying Guild Gen Con 2017 releases. Moving away from the quest pack and special we previewed in our last blog post, today we're going to talk about scenarios #1-01, 1-02, and 1-03!

I've previously gushed about Eleanor Ferron's work on Starfinder Society #1-01: The Commencement in some of our faction blogs. This scenario follows in the footsteps of many Pathfinder Society "evergreen" scenarios, like The Confirmation and the venerable First Steps (wow, now I feel old). Like those well-known introductory Pathfinder scenarios, The Commencement is a repeatable scenario for characters in Tier 1-2 where the PCs partake in some missions for four of the Society's primary factions—sorry Second Seekers, but you get a whole season metaplot dedicated to your missions! The Organized Play team agreed that The Commencement would be an introduction to the Starfinder Society and our initial factions, so we knew we wanted someone who could really take the skeletal outlines of our faction leaders and run with them. If you've been reading the faction blogs, you can get a sense of these faction leaders. When you play The Commencement, you'll see exactly how superb a job that Eleanor Ferron has done in bringing each of these major NPCs to life.

Illustrations by Eleanor Ferron

One scenario we haven't had a good chance to spotlight, at least until now, is Starfinder Society #1-02: Fugitive on the Red Planet. Let me be blunt: this adventure takes place on Akiton and is our first attempt at telling a "space western". Jim Groves, a longtime friend and longstanding Adventure Path and organized play freelance author, took up the challenge of writing this scenario. I knew Jim had really nailed the theme when I found myself humming a tune during my development pass—a tune about "a hero from some place" and "a man they call something". Beyond these obvious homages to western stories, there are some strong connections to the greater Starfinder setting. This is our first view of Starfinder's rendition of Akiton, as well as the introduction of some key Starfinder Society issues brought forth by the disastrous Scoured Stars incident. My favorite aspect of Fugitive on the Red Planet is the introduction of a particular shirren NPC. I have noticed a lot of fans referring to Keskodai as "bug dad" in conversations; well, this new NPC quickly became known as "business bug" during my development pass.

Starfinder Society #1-03: Yesteryear's Truth is our final Gen Con 2017 Starfinder Society release. I have a strange professional relationship with the author of this adventure, the incredibly talented Jason Keeley. It seems that over the past year, Jason and I have been leapfrogging on developing each other's work. Since Jason had just recently finished developing some of my text from the Starfinder Core Rulebook, I figured I needed to return the favor and offer him one of our launch scenarios so I could get back in the development seat. The result is a scenario that I think a lot of people are going to be talking about for quite some time. In Yesteryear's Truth, the PCs set foot on a previously unexplored world wracked by a nuclear war. This scenario has it all: starship combat, exploration, social encounters with alien species, and even some archaeological discoveries with some hefty moral quandaries. On top of all those things, this is our first scenario with a special faction opportunity (denoted by the Faction tag on the adventure's credits page). The Wayfinders, being a faction about exploration and peaceful first contact, understandably have some vested interest in the PCs' success!

That's it for Gen Con previews! I'm now in Indianapolis and getting ready for "the best four days in gaming." If you spot me at the convention—likely in the Sagamore Ballroom—please feel free to say hi! Otherwise, we'll be back soon to talk about the Starfinder Society its base of operations, the Lorespire Complex.

John's Note: Need more playable Starfinder Society content? We've also finished sanctioning the first volume of Starfinder #1: Incident on Absalom Station! Take a look at its product page for a link to download the sanctioning document. We (okay, admittedly it's more Thursty) will be sanctioning subsequent volumes closer to their respective release dates.

Fortune Favors the Bold

Fortune Favors the Bold

Wednesday, August 16, 2017

Gen Con 50 is just about to start, and the convention's 50th anniversary promises to be bigger than ever. Here on the organized play team, we've been pulling out all the stops.

John and Thurston talked last week about our big specials and quests for Pathfinder Society and Starfinder Society, so if you haven't had a chance to check that out, take a look! I'm here to talk about this year's other brand-new Pathfinder Society RPG offerings to kick of the Year of Faction's Favor, starting with our August scenario lineup.

First up, by Katherine Cross, we have the Tier 1-5 adventure #9-01: The Cost of Enlightenment. Katherine has a knack for painting vivid settings and memorable characters to draw your characters right in to an idyllic scene in a cosmopolitan city in Qadira. Of course, the Pathfinder Society wouldn't just send its agents to relax and enjoy a festival. Members of a formerly peaceful cult have become criers of great discovery that has left them preaching nihilism and ruin. If the PCs can earn the favor of some influential locals in the bustling trade hub, they can journey to the source of the revelation, face those who curse the appearance of outsiders in a sacred space, and discover their own perspectives on a complicated truth.

Illustrations by Josef Kucera

Our next new scenario, #9-02: A Case of Missing Persons, by Alex Greenshields, begins on the threshold of an international incident. Masked mercenaries have abducted two members of Andoran's top government body, the People's Council, and taken them to the revolutionary and bloody nation of Galt. Worse, these assailants are affiliated with Galt's force of secret police and executioners. When magical means to locate these prisoners fail, it falls to a group of enterprising Pathfinder agents to uncover a dark conspiracy, rescue a powerful Pathfinder Society ally, and reveal the mastermind's true identity. Can your Tier 3-7 PCs get to the bottom of this situation before the trail goes cold? My favorite part of this scenario is probably the creative encounter that Alex put together for when the PCs set off to rescue the Society ally, but I'll leave the details for you to experience for yourselves.

Last but certainly not least, we have the Tier 5-9 scenario #9-03: On The Border of War, by Crystal Malarsky. In Brevoy, the specter of civil war always lurks on the horizon, as scheming noble factions jostle for power. Two of these factions both have strong claims for the copper mining town of Zmeyka, and conflict seems almost inevitable. If war breaks out, an ancient keep on the outskirts of town that holds yet-undiscovered secrets of Brevoy's past could be lost forever. It falls to the PCs to quickly uncover the keep's secrets. They must also decide if they wish to throw the Pathfinder Society's weight behind one of the conflict's sides, stay out of the struggle entirely, or undertake the daunting task of attempting to negotiate for peace. Crystal did an excellent job presenting the participants in the rising conflict and the wealth of historical information that lurks in the ancient keep.

On top of these three scenarios, Paizo has teamed up with Games & Gears and Gen Con to produce a new module, Heroes for Highdelve, which will be premiering as a special event at Gen Con and available for sale at both the Games and Gears booth and the Paizo Booth at Gen Con. It will be available for download on paizo.com in the near future. This adventure, written by Paizo developer Amanda Hamon Kunz, charges 1st-level adventurers with the task of recovering a precious amulet and preventing mayhem from descending upon their home.

For those of you who have signed up to play in this event at Gen Con, we are pleased to announce that you can receive credit for one of your Pathfinder Society characters. You can now download the sanctioning document from the product page and soon the Additional Resources page.

If you're be attending Gen Con, I look forward to seeing you there!

Skies of Crimson Brainstorm

Utherwald Press - Wed, 08/16/2017 - 09:00
With Frozen Skies currently in layout and a (hopeful) release of some point in the next 2-3 months, its time to take a look at a future project. Skies of Crimson is one of those future project and is a supplement for Frozen Skies that focuses mainly on the sky pirates aspect of the setting. This week's post is more of a brainstorm/list of initial ideas of stuff that I'd like to include in the book, course theres no telling what may end up in the final product.

Skies of Crimson


The focus of the book is on the sky piracy that exists in the world of Darmonica, so obviously alot of it is going to be focused on sky pirates. But I do intend for some more general stuff that can be used in almost any type of game for Frozen Skies.

*Airship/Skyship Rules:- Covering blimps, zeppelins and of course Darmonica's Skyships. Uncertain on whether there'll be construction rules or just different examples given and how to handle them in combat.

*More Aircraft:- Yeah, this was probably a given. Probably try to do some non-Commonwealth planes.

*More Gear:- Stuff like aircraft weapons in the form of aerial torpedoes and specialist gear for boarding actions.

*Base Building/Airfield Rules:- Partially inspired by the Lodge rules in Rippers and the campaign rules from the Zeppelins & Bombers supplement for the old Crimson Skies game.

*Broken Spires:- A chapter on Frozen Skies' sky pirate haven wouldn't go amiss.

*NPCs & Beasts:- Sky pirates is an obvious one here, plus notable characters in Broken Spires.

Thats my initial thoughts on possible content, though I'm sure there be some great suggestions offered.

To Indy, And Beyond!

Paizo - Tue, 08/15/2017 - 19:00

To Indy, And Beyond!

Tuesday, August 15, 2017

Wait, it's already August again?! It's almost time for crowds of gamers to converge in Indianapolis for Gen Con 50 and Paizo officially releases our newest roleplaying game, Starfinder! If you're on your way to the show, we've gone ahead and collected a list of all things Pathfinder and Starfinder that you'll be able to check out over the weekend.

What's at the Paizo Booth?

First, you should definitely stop by our expansive booth in the Exhibitors Hall (#103), where we'll be featuring all of our new Starfinder and Pathfinder summer releases and a wide variety of other Paizo products to choose from.

Illustration by Victor Manuel Leza Moreno

If you're going to be purchasing a Starfinder Core Rulebook from the Paizo booth, you can also get a PDF copy added to your paizo.com for just $5! We'll also be handing out collectable pins, a new design each day, available on a first come, first serve basis. And, attendees who make a $50 or more purchase at the booth will receive a free Pathfinder Battles promotional figure (limit one per customer, while supplies last).

Looking for a fashion bonus? We'll have the brand new Starfinder Logo, Starfinder Space Goblin, Starfinder Society: Year of Scoured Stars, and Pathfinder Society: Year of Factions Favor t-shirts at the ready. Plus, we've teamed up with Scotty's Brewhouse bring Gen Con attendees a Starfinder themed pub menu and special Space Goblin t-shirt, exclusively at Scotty's over Gen Con weekend. You can get more information on their website.

Gimme the Books!

We're also providing Gen Con attendees another way to get their hands on Starfinder with a Grab-and-Go kiosk just outside of the Sagamore Ballroom. This card only kiosk is will be selling all the initial Starfinder launch products. There are no subscription pickups at the kiosk, and it will not be carrying our "merch" items (like lanyards or t-shirts).

Our Partners

A number of Paizo's partners are also in attendance! Ben Loomes of Syrinscape (booth #343) is proud to announce they'll be launching their Starfinder sounds at Gen Con, making Starfinder the first tabletop RPG to launch with a full audio companion on day one. Syrinscape will be giving away a free Docking Bay 94 SoundSet with Starfinder Core Rulebook purchases while supplies last. All around Gen Con, you'll be able to hear their epic sounds and music, including at the Friday night special in the Sagamore Ballroom, the Music & Ambiance in Gaming panel on Sunday. Plus, if you top by the booth on Sunday, you (and your voice) can get a chance to become immortalized as Lovecraft's insanity-inducing Shoggoth.

You'll also get a first look at Ninja Division's line of Starfinder miniatures in both the Paizo and Ninja Division booth (#2827). The first wave of miniatures are planned to land this fall. We plan to show off some previews over the weekend, so stay tuned!

And, we can't overlook that this year is a big year for Gen Con! To celebrate the 50th anniversary, we teamed up with Games & Gears and Gen Con to bring you Heroes for High Delve by Paizo author, Amanda Hamon Kunz. You can pick up your copy of Heroes for High Delve from Games & Gears at booth #2402, and the companion Flip-Mat, Pathfinder Flip-Mat: Cavernous Lair from the Paizo booth.

Be sure to also check out offerings our friends from Black Book Editions, Q-Workshop, Ulisses Spiele (including a peek at the Aventuria Card Game), and WizKids! There's a lot to see over these four days, so don't miss out!

Organized Play

Y'all are ready to play some games right? Head up to the Sagamore Ballroom where we'll be hosting the weekend's launch of new Pathfinder Society Roleplaying and Adventure Card Guild seasons and of the Starfinder Society Roleplaying Guild. Get the full schedule of Organized Play events on Gen Con's website.

Many updates for Organized Play have also been trickling their way onto paizo.com. This is a big and exciting time for our world-wide campaigns, and we appreciate your patience and incredibly valuable feedback as we expand these programs.

Wait, There's More?!

You bet! Paizo is also hosting an array of panels and seminars over the weekend in room #212 (that's next to the Sagamore Ballroom). These include topics covering both Pathfinder and Starfinder, and include all sorts of great information about the universe of both games.

Additionally, we'd like to take a moment to recognize the Gen Con Industry Insiders of the Paizo staff: Developer Crystal Frasier and Editor Lyz Liddell! Congratulations, you two! Be sure to keep a look out for their events on the schedule.

Not Going to Gen Con?

Follow along on Paizo's Facebook and Twitter! You can also track the tags #starfinderrpg, #pathfinderrpg, and #gencon50.

UPDATE, August 17: The Grab-and-Go Kiosk has sold out of its stock of Starfinder product and has packed up for the weekend. Additionally, we have sold out of our convention stock of the Starfinder Core Rulebook. If you are a Starfinder Roleplaying Game Subscriber, and opted-in for Gen Con pickup, we do have your copy reserved at the booth.
