  • OPC Log—7 Sarenith 4717
    OPC Log—7 Sarenith 4717 Wednesday, June 7, 2017 It is summer, the sun is shining, and Pathfinder Society games abound. I'm working hard with the Pathfinder Society team in pulling edges together for the conclusion of Year of the Stolen Storm and the launch of the Year of Factions' Favor. Lots of great news, but I'll leave that to a different blog for more information. For today, I'll focus on all the great things going on in our community! Newest 5 Star GMs A fortunate side effect of the popularity of Pathfinder Society is a constant need… ... read more

  • Pathfinder: Kingmaker Launches Kickstarter Campaign
    Developer Owlcat Games announces the launch of its crowdfunding campaign for the party-based fantasy video game Pathfinder: Kingmaker on PC. Players will shape the history and destiny of their own kingdom in the game, by choosing the path of tyrannical rule, subtle diplomacy or trickery and deceit. Subjects of the kingdom and companions in the party will love or loathe these moral decisions and the chosen path will influence the development and appearance of the kingdom's capital city. The veteran RPG developers from Owlcat Games, strengthened by Chris Avellone for narrative game design, present their ambitious goals for Pathfinder: Kingmaker.… ... read more

  • New Paths Among the Stars: Compatibility Between Starfinder and Pathfinder
    New Paths Among the Stars: Compatibility Between Starfinder and Pathfinder Monday, June 5, 2017 Starfinder is a complete roleplaying game, and can be played on its own without ever referring to the Pathfinder Roleplaying Game. It is based on Pathfinder, of course, and shares many similarities with its older cousin, but in many cases Starfinder handles specific issues differently than Pathfinder. We've mentioned several times that Pathfinder is easily integrated into Starfinder, and that there's some level of compatibility between the two games, but we haven't been very specific on exactly how easy it'll be to add… ... read more

  • Five Differences Between Starfinder Rules and Pathfinder Rules
    Five Differences Between Starfinder Rules and Pathfinder Rules Friday, June 2 2017 Given the ever-approaching release of the Starfinder Roleplaying Game, there's no better time to highlight a few new Starfinder rules! Although Starfinder is heavily based on the Pathfinder RPG system, there are nevertheless some significant rules changes between the two. So to give you a quick taste of some of the changes, here are five key mechanics that differentiate the Starfinder RPG from Pathfinder. 1. Hit Points, Stamina Points, and Resolve Points. In Starfinder, Hit Points measure the health and robustness of a character, while… ... read more

    Pardon Out Dust: What We Said (and Didn't Say) About the Pathfinder Adventure Card Game at PaizoCon Thursday, June 1, 2017 Every year for the past four years, I have gone onstage at the PaizoCon banquet and talked about upcoming releases for the Pathfinder Adventure Card Game.

  • Raise Defense Screens!
    Raise Defense Screens! Monday, May 29, 2017 A good GM screen can be so much more than a way to hide campaign notes and die rolls from nosy players. At its best, it can function as a handy reference tool that obviates the need for a GM to constantly consult her books. But just as importantly, the side facing the players should be something interesting for them to look at, an image that evokes the style and themes of the game and helps get them in the zone.

  • A Talk About Cooperation
    A Talk About Cooperation Saturday, May 27, 2017 There are three important duties for every Pathfinder field agent: Explore, Report, and Cooperate. These tenants remain a core foundation of the Starfinder Society organization. Today, I want to talk a little bit about cooperation, specifically factions and how they fit into the Starfinder Society Roleplaying Guild. Every good Starfinder knows the importance of working together with fellow field agents. Engaging in some 'jolly cooperation' is fundamental to a successful mission. Factions in the Starfinder Society build upon this concept. Each faction is a distinct organization that operates within… ... read more

    Class Preview: The Soldier Friday, May 26, 2017 As soon as we announced Starfinder, there were fans that wanted to know what kind of options there would be for the heavy-armor-wearing, magic-plasma-cannon-firing, jet-packed combatant character. While any Starfinder character can do those things if they dedicate themselves to getting the needed resources, the character who does it most easily (and gets the most class features designed to work with such actions) is the soldier. This is the description the soldier gets in the Starfinder Core Rulebook: Conflict is an inevitable result of life. On every… ... read more

Illustration by Remko Troost In classic vesk fashion, Obozaya Ymeros lets her friends shorten her name to "Obo," but not even Damoritosh himself can protect those who attempt to use her nickname without earning it first. Obozaya was born on Vesk Prime, the planetary capital of the Veskarium, to a family of low-level military bureaucrats. Distinguishing… ... read more

  • Class Preview: The Mystic
    Class Preview: The Mystic Saturday, May 20, 2017 The setting of Starfinder is very much a science fantasy universe, with a lot of science fiction ideas mashed together with more fantastical and supernatural concepts. This isn't an accident, but an inevitable conclusion to asking the question "What happens if advanced technology becomes commonplace in the Pathfinder universe?" In Starfinder, it's well accepted that there are forces beyond the understanding of pure science which, whether you want to refer to them as arcane, divine, or psychic, are best thought of as just "magic." There are options for… ... read more

    Four Score and Seven Yetis Ago… On the bloody fields of Pennsylvania in 1863, two great armies collided to decide the fate of a nation. The South rose, and the North responded with fervent mettle. At the forefront of the battle stood the mighty Yetis, white-furred giants imported from the wilds of Canada to shred the opposing front lines. The great generals strode through the battle lines, engineering the destruction of the opposing forces while powerful mastodons hurled bombs into the fray.
