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.
