We've known it's been coming for a long time, but it's finally here. Pathfinder 2nd edition is available down at your LGS now.

Whatever you and your party feel like getting up to.
Some players want to make sure that the character they're building really fits in with the world they'll be adventuring in. For those of you like that, and who will be playing the Age of Ashes adventure for Pathfinder, you'll want to get yourself a copy of the Age of Ashes Player's Guide. It will help you create the character you want, along with give you some handy info about the world. Also, it's free. So why not check it out?
The launch of Pathfinder 2nd Edition is just a couple days away. With it, players will be diving into the new sets of rules and building new characters. But, ok, so you've got your character... now what are they going to do? Well, adventure, of course! Paizo will be releasing several pre-built adventures on launch day so GMs don't have to worry about fully figuring everything out ahead of time and can just play along with one as they go.
So far, most of the previews for Pathfinder 2nd edition have focused on characters and what they're capable of and how they work. But, while for a player, the character is everything. For the GM, the characters are only the beginning. They've got a whole world to manage, and that's not always so easy. So, in this preview, we get a look at what tools GMs will have at their disposal for making things work smoothly.
When you miss out on a crowdfunding campaign, you might think, "well, damn, all those deals are gone forever." But many times, that's not the case when the company allows late pledges. And that's just what we have here. Paizo is taking late pledges for their Kingmaker adventure for Pathfinder. You have from now until the end of September to get your order in.
So, you've got your character. You went and you did some adventuring. Now, it's time to level up. But... how exactly does that work in the new edition of Pathfinder? Well, that's exactly what we get a look at in this preview from Paizo.
The launch of Pathfinder 2nd Edition is Paizo's biggest release of the year, and we're getting ever-closer to its release.

They've given us a schedule so we can all know when to tune in.
So, you've got your character all built. Now what are you supposed to do with them? Well, you should go adventuring, of course! But how does that work in the new version of Pathfinder that's coming out? Glad you asked, because that's just what we get a look at in this preview from Paizo.
Your character. If you're not the DM, it's pretty much everything you have in an RPG. So, it's important that your character is built the way you want. But how do you go about making one? That's an extremely important question, and one that's answered in this article from Piazo about building characters in Pathfinder 2nd Edition.
August 1st. That's when Pathfinder: Second Edition hits shelves. It's not all that far away, really. But what can you expect from this new version of the RPG? In the first of what will be an ongoing series, Paizo gives us a look at what changes have been made, but also what has remained the same.
August is not all that far away. With it will come Gen Con and some new releases from Paizo. ... *looks at the number of releases* Ok, so "some" might be an understatement. There's going to be a deluge of releases. But then, it will be the release of the new Pathfinder edition. So there's that. Have yourself a look-see.
Keeping all your stats, abilities, feats, gear, and spells straight for your character is very important. You might forget that you have that one ability that would totally make that fight super-simple if you just remembered it. Having a good, clean, and organized character sheet will help with that. And Paizo is taking pre-orders for their Pathfinder 2nd edition character sheet pack now.
The war is over. But what do the survivors do in the aftermath? Can they eke out a living in the new wildnerness that's been created? That's for you to decide in From the Ashes, a new setting book for Ponyfinder from Silver Games.
It's good to be king. But, in RPGs, you don't usually end up being the actual monarch in control of a country. ... But why the heck not? Ultimate Kingdoms not only helps you build kingdoms in your games, but it puts you in control of them. It's a supplement for both 5th Edition and Pathfinder, and it's up on Kickstarter now.
When heading into a new region, it's good to get the lay of the land and know what you're heading into. That holds especially true if where you're heading isn't the most lush of environments. That's the case with The Broken Lands. We get a preview of them coming in the Lost Omens World Guide from Paizo.
"Watch out for snakes!"
Who said that?
Say you really love playing Pathfinder, but you also love playing card games. What're you supposed to do? Well, you could play the Pathfinder: Adventure Card Game.

Along with it, there's also a new adventure path in the form of the Curse of the Crimson Throne.
Sure, buffing your other party members is cool. But what if you would prefer to instead debuff your opponents? You could help set up for the killing blow from your party mates. That's exactly what the Ruinblade is a master of. It's a new character class for Pathfinder that's available from Silver Games.
Arabian fiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiights, like Arabian ... uh... days?
Arabian Fights is a new setting book for your Dungeons & Dragons and Pathfinder games. As one would expect, it's a vast desert, but it's far from uninhabited, with several different cultures, various magic items, and two different villains for you to defeat. The book is up on Kickstarter now.

Sheep. They're not exactly nature's smartest creatures. They're decent prey items for any predator that might be out there. And out there a predator is. The flocks in Thornbriar Hills have been thinning lately, and it's up to an adventuring party to figure out what's doing the damage and to stop it. That's what's happening in The Beast of Thornbriar Hills, a new RPG adventure that's up on Kickstarter now.
The Maze is not a place you want to place any characters that you've become really attached to. It's a vicious place, filled with nefarious traps and horrific monsters. The campaign says that your characters will likely not make it out. But that's the fun of it, right? The Maze is a fantasy adventure that you can drop into your RPGs. It's also up on Kickstarter now.
Kingmaker is one of the adventure paths that quite a lot of people have enjoyed over the years. It's an epic tale that got many people into Pathfinder to begin with. However, many of the original books have been out of print for quite some time. Well, that's not a problem any longer. The book is up on Game On Tabletop, and it's been refreshed, updated, and expanded from the original version.
Many of you have played through the Kingmaker adventure path in Pathfinder. Many others have heard of it, but never gotten a chance to get the books, as several have been long out of print. Well, those that want to relive the glory or try it for the first time, Paizo is looking to bring a hardcover deluxe edition in honor of the 10th anniversary of the set. They'll be heading to Kickstarter next week in order to fund it.

If you've ever had an adventure start with a TPK, this is the adventure for you. Unfortunately, the characters have already lost, but that's not going to stop them from figuring out a way to still win in the end.
Soldiers. They've sworn their lives to uphold the honor, integrity, and borders of their nation. It's not a role one takes on easily. That holds true in the world of Ponyfinder, too. This new book from Silver Games contains a new class, the Soldier, written to be compatible with both Pathfinder and 5th Edition. It also takes a look at running a game from a soldier's point of view, that is someone with ties to a specific country, rather than just "murder hobos."
