Paizo


In order to show off some more of the new character options that are in the Near Space book for Starfinder that's out, Paizo likes to put together a character that uses some of them. That way, instead of just getting a bit of a rule without much context, you can see how it fits into an actually-build character. In this case, we get a look at Daytenna Flass, a new NPC also from the book.

Professional wrestling. It's a hoot. It's all the high-fling action of Cirque De Soliel with the drama and pathos of Telenovellas. And this Wednesday, it's coming to Starfinder. Paizo will be running a game and introducing X.T.R.E.M. wrestling to the game.

Information is key during this time. You want to know what's going on outside while you're inside. You want to know when things will hopefully start to normalize out a bit. To help keep you in the know, Paizo has been posting regular updates during this crisis. They've got a new one up, including a look at what they will be releasing this month.

Here we are at the start of a new month. This is going to be a rough one for a lot of us. But being informed, even if it's not the brightest of news, is still better than just being in the dark. That's why, though it's not the happiest of news, Paizo's posted an April Update so you can know what they've got going on, as well as their convention schedule for the next several months (hey, some of them aren't cancelled. And many are moving to online).

We all tyop from time to tiem. That's just life. Most of the time, it just leads to a nonsense word. However, occasionally, you can create a real gem with a typo. Well, the folks at Paizo have been saving some of these typoes and turning them into monsters for Pathfinder. They've got full stats and you can add them to your game now.

I know we don't usually talk about Humble Bundles, since it's a 3rd-party thing and we stay away from those. But considering that COVID-19 is affecting everyone right now, we'll make an exception. This bundle is raising money to help stop the disease.

As with most Starfinder releases, there's a little bit of something for everyone inside Near Space, their upcoming book. GMs will have guides for new planets and regions of space. Players will have new character options. It's some of these options that we get a look at here in this article as Paizo builds a new character sporting some of those spiffy, new options.

I know for a fact that you can still play your RPGs while practicing social distancing. I played just this past weekend, for example, while nobody was in the same apartment as me. And since you can still get pdfs without having to worry about shipping woes. So, Paizo's got their Spring Social event going on where you can save on their products over in their webshop.

Like every company, Paizo's been affected by the COVID-19 pandemic. They've posted an update about how things are going over there. Long story short: no physical shipments for 2 weeks, PaizoCon for this year is cancelled, you can still get pdf purchases right away so you can game while you're at home.

Near Space for Starfinder gives players a detailed look at a fairly dense region of space where hundreds of different worlds lie. If you'd like to get an inside look at what's inside the book (it's in inside-ception!), you can check out this article. It gives you a chapter breakdown of what's coming in the book.

Paizo is making their way looking through the Extinction Curse adventure path for Pathfinder. In this deep-dive, they are holding their breath and headed into Life's Long Shadows, the third volume in the group.

Normally, the different monsters and other creatures added to RPGs are out there to attack the party in some form. But with how things are right now, Paizo thought about going a different direction by adding the Amabie to Pathfinder. This is a much more friendly character that your party can come across.

We're always looking to the future. Paizo certainly is, as they're planning on coming out with a new Beginner Box for Pathfinder in November. Is that a long way away? Sure it is. But I can't wait for it. That's my favorite time of year. But Thanksgiving aside, we'll also be able to pick up this new set to get your friends into the game quickly and easily.

Paizo is welcoming Roll For Combat into their licensed partner family. The channel makes podcasts of different Paizo games and now they're going to be running the RPG Superstar Contest. I mean, who doesn't want to be a superstar? I want to be one. So you know I'm putting my name in the hat. You should too.

While players may want to steer clear of too many articles about different adventure paths for Starfinder, GMs should very much head on in to see what's going on. You want to make sure it's the adventure path that's right for your game, right? Of course! So, in this article, Paizo's delving into The Chimera Mystery, part of the Threefold Conspiracy adventure path.

Paizo is continuing their look into the Extinction Curse (todaaaaaaaaaay's going to be the greeeeeeeeeatest day of your liiiiiiiife) Adventure Path. This time, they're doing a deep dive into the Legacy of the Lost God adventure for it. If you're interested in running this for your group, you should check out the article.

Starfinder is getting a new book this month in the form of Near Space. As with most Starfinder books, there's a whole wealth of information for both players and GMs. In this preview, we get a look at the Veskarium plenetary system. They could easily be antagonists for an entire campaign. So, having some insight into their core system would definitely be beneficial.

Many people claim to have seen or even been abducted by aliens. Many times, the description of the creatures that they encounters are Greys. In Starfinder, these Greys also exist and they're part of the group The Unseen. Not much is known about them (for obvious reasons), but Paizo's taking a look into them, hopefully to spread more information about just what these creatures are up to.

Having pre-made adventures, and even just encounters, ready to pull out at a moment's notice can really make the life of a GM much, much easier. And that's what we've got here. Paizo has posted up a new Pathfinder encounter using items from their Bestiary Pawn Box and Bestiary Battle Cards. And this one's free to download. So, why not take a look?

Paizo's Extinction Curse adventure path for Pathfinder has a lot of twists and turns, including a detour into a circus. They've been going into a lot of detail about this adventure, and now it's time to go further still. They've posted up an article that looks into different aspects of the path, and particularly, that circus adventure, The Show Must Go On.

Planet Building By A Crowd. A while ago, Paizo wanted to work with the community using its Deck of Many Worlds to create a new planet for Starfinder, giving it a full write-up when done. Well, it's done and the write-up is here. Now, you can take your adventurers to Neidr Nine for a swim.

While the main Pathfinder book gives you pretty much everything you need to play or run a game, the Gamemastery Guide is dedicated to giving GMs a whole host of new tools to up their game to not just the next level, but a couple levels. All the way from the basics to NPCs to variant rules, it's got everything a GM needs.

Recently, the folks over at Paizo had a Twitch stream where they collectively with the audience built themselves a monster for Pathfinder. The Ailurans are what they came up with. This new monster has been created mostly by you, the players, and is now ready to take its place in your campaigns. Paizo's posted up its full stats and information on their website.

A mystery is afoot! It can be tough to include a mystery in your RPGs, owing to the freewheeling nature of what parties tend to get into. But Paizo's here to help with their Threefold Conspiracy Adventure Path for Starfinder. The first part, The Chimera Mystery, is due out soon. In this article, Paizo looks at running mysteries in campaigns.

Want to help out at conventions? Maybe get to know some of the people behind some of your favorite games? It can be a first-step to getting into the gaming industry as a career (that's where I started, after all). Well, Paizo is looking for people to help at various events they'll be attending. Send in your application and you may just be picked.
