New Quests and Ancient Perils

Mon 27 March 2017 by Unknown from Paizo

Around the Paizo office, we've been really busy getting the upcoming Starfinder Core Rulebook out the door and launching the Starfinder Society Roleplaying Guild campaign—but not so busy that we couldn't bring you two great new adventures for the Pathfinder Society Roleplaying Guild. Perhaps two isn't quite the right number, as Pathfinder Society Scenario #8-16: House of Harmonious Wisdom is not a quest but a series of five Tier 1-5 quests. Every quest pack is a new opportunity and a new challenge—an opportunity to work with lots of new authors, and a challenge to find just the right location on Golarion to present a new set of adventures. This series presented even more opportunities because this is the first time we've released a full series of quests mid-season, it's the first time we've presented a full series of quests at multiple subtiers, and it's also the first series of quests we've centered in Tian Xia. Fortunately, the authors Jason Owen, Black, Katherine Cross, Sarah Hood, and Christopher Rowe all did admirably, creating engaging characters and fun encounters that show off the conflict between the three nations that each claims to be the rightful heir of the fallen Lung Wa empire: Lingshen, Po Li, and Quain. In collaboration with the retired folk hero Mai Chun (pictured here), the PCs must visit each of the three Successor States in search of a famous Lung Wa relic—all while evading envious rivals (like the scholar pictured here) who seek the same prize. Because these mid-season quests with multiple subtiers are an experiment in the season's structure, we're eager to hear back from you about whether this is a something we should repeat in the future, whether it was useful for your area, and how we can improve this format.


Kickstarter - The Book of Passion (OGL 3.75; Mature Audiences)

Tue 07 March 2017 by Erik Tenkar from Tenkar's Tavern

I'm certainly NO expert on the matter, but I'm guessing they used "3.75" instead of "Pathfinder" exactly because of that, i.e., they cannot use the Pathfinder logo. How convenient. Kickstarter rules clearly forbid multiple simultaneous projects. But even though the "risks" ection of this project brags ...

Chrome Heavy RPGs, Why Bother?

Mon 06 March 2017 by modoc31 from Rolling Boxcars

Chrome in RPGs is nothing new. As you can see in the below article, back in 2014 it was heavily on my radar as something that overly irritated me. How do I feel two years later?  Well, about the same. There is good chrome and there is bad chrome. I ...
