PF2E Here's What's Coming For Pathfinder Over The Coming Year

At their (now online) convention this last weekend, Paizo revealed some information about upcoming Pathfinder 2E stuff!

Amongst other things, they announced The Abomination Vaults, their first 3-part adventure path, followed by Fists of the Ruby Phoenix (a worldwide test of martial arts and magic held every 10 years), also 3-parts.

Bestiary 2 released very recently; Bestiary 3 is now announced for March 2021! And the Lost Omens Ancestry Guide has a whole bunch of new character options for existing ancestries as well as new ancestries.

Agreed though I might substitute the Moldvay Basic for the Red Box but 8 have a soft spot for B/X

I dont play PF, too crunchy, but will pick up the starter set for sure as ot is probably rules light enough to give a try.
While the price point on PF2's Beginner Box is likely higher than PF1 was on release, it is worth saying that the original PF1 Beginner Box was, hands down, the best value in RPG gaming. Period.

When initially released and purchased through Amazon, for $18.99, you got:

    • A full set of polyhedal dice;
    • A flip mat - blank and reusable on one side like all of Paizo's flip mats;
    • A generous set of Pawns (thick cardboard minis) that were so popular, they spawned an entire product line;
    • A full set of plastic bases for your pawns; and
    • [Adventure, GM rules and Player rules + character sheets.]
If you never played or looked at the rest of the PF1 Beginner Box apart from the accessories contents, it was still easily the best gaming value for your money. Even if you only ever used it for 5e.

And no, because of the high value accessories contents, there was no box for D&D -- any edition -- that could ever touch it for usefulness and value - going all the way back to the original Blue Box.

Is this the same Steel wind that used to do the Pathfinder Chronicles Podcast for PF1 adventures?

Yes, that's me.
Just wanted to say thanks to you and the Chronicles crew! Your podcast was amazing. At the time you folks were in full swing, I was just getting back into active RPG play by introducing my kids to Pathfinder. All of the content was great, but in particular your designer interviews and your adventure reviews - both of which were led by you - really allowed me to engage with the game in a way that I couldn't with kid newbies.

Thanks for the kind words. I am glad that the cast brought you enjoyment and some enlightenment, I hope.

It's regrettable that we stopped doing them, but in the end my partner Az was no longer able to continue with them. (He handled the technical side of the podcast.)

On the plus side, I and another from the Chronicles team are involved in developing some cool new stuff for VTT and computer enhanced tabletop play. If you pay attention, you'll see more about this in the coming months. Don't worry - I'll crow publicly about it when it's time. :)

I miss your reviews of adventures. I don't need all the fancy high production values..... I would just enjoy listening to your reviews again.
