Paizo announces a partnership with BKOM. April 2023 Organized play update. A few notes on conventions.


Paizo just announced their partnership with BKOM Studios to bring not one, but two new videogames to the market. One will be launched on Steam later this year and one is in the early stages of development. They will be revealing details of the two projects in the near future.

Organized Play
Pathfinder Society Scenario #4-12: Negotiations for the Star Gun, Pathfinder Quest (Series 2) #14: The Swordlord’s Challenge, and Starfinder Society Scenario #5-16: To Catch A King will be be available April 26, 2023

You've asked for it and now you've got it! Paizo is putting out overviews for new players to see how their Organized Play programs work and are intended to give players everything they need to get started and find a gaming group. Both Pathfinder and Starfinder have their own pages.

In sanctioning news, Pathfinder Society saw the final volume of the Gatewalkers Adventure Path released as well as the sanctioning of Lost Omens: Firebrands. They are trying something new with this release by listing the reasons why certain options aren't available for the campaign. Starfinder Society got the release of Drift Crisis Case Files. This is a break from the norm as each case file is a double-length scenario, allowing them to be run at events with longer slots or over multiple weeks.

Next on the docket for Starfinder are Drift Hackers Adventure Path and Ports of Call. As a note, the Drift Hackers AP will be slightly delayed due to an internal issue, but should be ready by PaizoCon Online. Pathfinder will be getting The Enmity Cycle in May and Lost Omens: Highhelm in June. There should also be Free RPG Day adventures for both systems available on June 24.

There are a couple of minor changes to the Treasure Vault items: the polytool has an access condition to bring it in line with Lost Omens: Gods and Magic, the black tendril shot is now permitted thanks to some errata, and the cassisian helmet has been removed from legality (any character who bought it can sell it back for full price).

PaizoCon tickets went on sale on Wednesday, April 5. Game signups will begin on April 10 for GMs and April 17 for all other attendees. Paizo is also partnering with KublaCon in California if you are looking for a physical location for PaizoCon.

Signups for Gen Con and Gen Con Online are still available for GMs. If you are thinking about signing up, now is the time to do it.

Last but not least, Alex Speidel will be attending UK Games Expo and running a few games in the Organized Play space. Be sure to say hi if you are at the show!
