Paizo’s Gen Con 2014 Costume Contest

Normally this would fall into the realm of a Paizo Blog update, but I didn’t want this to get lost in the shuffle. Every year at Gen Con, Paizo holds their own Pathfinder Costume Contest. Entering is as easy as: 1) Attend Gen Con, 2)  Dress up as your favorite Pathfinder character/NPC/monster/iconic, 3) Stop by the Paizo booth and have your picture taken, and let them know you want to enter. Sure the first step can be non-trivial, but if […]

Paizo Blog Summary for September 8

Good morning, Pathfinders! As I write this, it’s all ready snowing where I live, making for a grey, cold morning. Let’s pull a chair up to the Paizo Blog and get warm, shall we? As Monday was a holiday, Tuesday brought the first blog post of the week, a round-up of resources for the Iron Gods Adventure Path. Definitely worth a read if you plan to play or GM that AP (which I am; my steel breaker brawler will go […]

Paizo Blog Summary for September 1

September already, Pathfinders. You know what that means, we start the slow slide into winter. Luckily you’ll have these Paizo blog summaries to keep you warm. Let’s begin: Monday started with a little PFS catch-up from John Compton, regarding the sanctioning of the Emerald Spire and The Mummy’s Mask. As well, he presented an important piece of art which was missed from a scenario; very important to the current season. Touted as a perfect companion to your Iron Gods campaign, […]

Paizo Blog Summary for August 25

Welcome, Pathfinders! Another week, another summary. As you might expect the week after Gen Con, pickings were light on the blog. Let’s dive in! Wednesday brought a preview chapter from the upcoming Pathfinder Tales novel Reign of Stars, by Tim Pratt. The novel sees the return of Pratt’s characters Alaeron and Skiver as they take on an investigation for the Technic League. This novel should tie in nicely with the Year of the Sky Key for PFS, and provide a […]

Paizo Blog Summary for August 18

As I put this post together, it is 5:30am on the Monday after Gen Con. Whew! What a great weekend, so much gaming goodness. I’ll post my own recap later in the week, but for now let’s dive in to the Paizo blog summary. Not surprisingly, most of it involves Gen Con… But first we start with Monday‘s announcement of the Season 6.0 Guide to Organized Play. Some pretty important changes to note, so if you don’t read the Guide […]

Paizo Blog Summary for August 12

I’m on the road to Gen Con, which is why the summary is coming to you a day later than normal. Who knew getting reliable internet coverage on a Greyhound bus travelling through northern Ontario would be a problem? Anyway, the delay has allowed us to add a bit of a bonus at the end, so it’s all good. Jumping ahead to Tuesday (see, we aren’t the only ones who had a problem with Monday), We saw the last of […]

Paizo Blog Summary for August 4

Greetings, Pathfinders! As Gen Con (or as I call it, Gamer Christmas) draws ever closer, how are you preparing for the convention? Will you attend, or are you going to experience Gen Con through our friends over at Know Direction? Either way, tell us you’re getting ready for the con. Let’s see what was cooking on the Paizo Blog last week. Monday brought very important missives from the new faction heads for Pathfinder Society play. If you haven’t yet, you […]

Paizo Blog Summary for July 28

Good morrow, gentle Pathfinders! Many cool things this week, so let’s get to it. F. Wesley Schneider got our Monday rolling with tales of Gen Cons past, and his first experience with True Dungeon. As a kid growing up in northern Canada, I lived the con life vicariously through stories like this in the pages of Dragon; only much later did I get to create con stories of my own. A great way to start the week. Tuesday snuck in […]

Paizo Blog Summary for July 21

Welcome, Pathfinders! Another week closer to Gen Con, another Paizo Blog summary. Let’s get stuck in. In case you thought the faction changes were the biggest Organized Play news, Monday proved you wrong with the announcement of new races (kitsune, nagaji, and wayang) being added to PFS, and old races (aasimar and tiefling) hitting the showers. Needless to say there is a bit of controversy among the membership over the decision. I definitely fall on the side of liking the change; […]

Weekly Paizo Blog Summary for July 7

Welcome, Pathfinders! This past weekend was PaizoCon (as if you didn’t know), so this week’s Paizo blog summary is naturally full of updates and snippets from that. But let’s start at the very beginning, a very good place to start! Monday brought us Faction Evolution, Part III, with a look at the changes ahead for the Taldor and Osirion factions (players should be aware of some slight spoilers for some Season 5 material). John Compton hinted at some of these […]
