StartPlaying and Paizo have partnered up to launch a new recurring event called “Pathfinder Play Weekend,” which will take place on the last weekend of every month, Thursday to Sunday. The first event will run from March 23rd through the 26th, and players can find open games on StartPlaying’s platform.
Paizo, the publisher of award-winning games Pathfinder and Starfinder, has designed Pathfinder to be easy to learn, streamlined to play, and offer deep character customization starting at level one, with meaningful choices at every level. The StartPlaying professional Game Masters are ready to get you started and keep you playing every month at Pathfinder Play Weekends, says Aaron Shanks, director of marketing at Paizo.
Pathfinder Second Edition has been leading a TTRPG boom since January of this year. Paizo sold through what was planned to be an eight-month supply of the Pathfinder Core Rulebook in two weeks. Meanwhile, interest in StartPlaying listings for Pathfinder has increased exponentially. Pathfinder Play Weekends will help meet this demand by matching eager new players and veteran fans with games for all skill levels.
StartPlaying Games is the premier online platform for finding open TTRPG games with professional Game Masters. GM profiles show their skillsets and ratings from players, allowing users to easily find someone whose style matches their preferred experience. Users can also refer friends to the service to claim a $10 credit toward a future game, perfect for inviting buddies to a new Pathfinder campaign!
“We’re always excited to make it easy for people to find and play games,” said Devon, StartPlaying co-founder. “We know the best way to make the hobby grow is to remove barriers to entry, and professional Game Masters are incredibly invested in providing an amazing experience to players and making them feel welcomed.”
Overall, the Pathfinder Play Weekend is a great opportunity for players of all skill levels to come together and experience the world of Pathfinder with professional Game Masters who are committed to providing a fun and immersive gaming experience. With the increasing popularity of TTRPGs, events like these are essential to help new players find their footing in the hobby and for veteran players to continue to explore and expand their horizons.
