Paizo Blog Summary for November 24

Good morning, Pathfinders! Welcome to another amazing week of Pathfinder Society goodness. A lot to cover so let’s jump right in.

Monday brought big news to the Pathfinder Society Organized Play campaign, as Mike Brock brought us a pretty comprehensive list of changes coming to the Society. If you haven’t looked at it yet I suggest you do so, because big shifts in how the campaign is set up are on the way. These changes have come as a direct result of Paizo listening to its membership (that’s you guys) and working to take your feedback to heart. Speaking for myself, it’s one of the reasons I love PFS and Paizo as a company; their responsiveness to their base. I’m also really excited for the proposed changes and can’t wait to see how they play out in my area.

On Tuesday we were introduced to Liz Spain, the newest member of the PACG design team. It’s great when we get to have a virtual “meet and greet” with new Paizo staff, especially when it comes with a little peak behind the design curtain. Having just started my PACGG play experience, I’m also really excited to try that scenario!

Introductions continued on Wednesday with a brief hello from Joe Homes, the newest member of the Paizo Editorial team. I liked that he gave us a look into his editorial style, and I’m happy to see Paizo listening and responding positively to player concerns regarding content editing. As an editor myself I know the pain of spotting an error too late to fix, so I’ve had nothing but empathy for Paizo’s recent (and not so recent) editing issues. Welcome, Joe!

Nothing for us Thursday, but Friday brought a double dose of news. First, if you are taking part in the Occult Adventures Playtest, that comes to a close on Tuesday, November 25, at 2pm Pacific. If you’ve been taking part, get those surveys in!

Second, we got a look of the final photos for characters from the Iconic Heroes #1 figure set, courtesy of Erik Mona. Nothing to say really, except that they look great and I can’t wait to pick them up. I mean, I’ll have to because of linear time constraints. But I won’t enjoy the wait at all.

That’s it for Paizo Blog updates, but I did want to take a moment to pass along an exciting announcement. We here at PathfinderSociety.net would like to congratulate Steve Miller and Joe Jungers as the two newest recipients of the Campaign Service Award. Both Steve and Joe have worked tirelessly in the Raleigh, NC area to grow PFS, and these awards are well-deserved. Congratulations to you both!

That’s it for this week, Pathfinders! What did you think of the latest PFS announcement? Did you try out the Occult Adventures playtest, and if so what did you think? Let us know in comments here or on Facebook.
