Paizo Inc., publisher of the award-winning Pathfinder Roleplaying Game and acclaimed Starfinder Roleplaying Game, announces today the line-up of activities planned for new Pathfinders and Starfinders alike at the new convention dedicated to tabletop gaming.
As a PAX Unplugged sponsor, Paizo staff members, along with members of the Organized Play Foundation, will bring a variety of activities to convention. Attendees may participate in one-hour game demos of the Pathfinder RPG, the Starfinder RPG or the Pathfinder Adventure Card Game at the Paizo booth in the Exhibition Hall, or longer games in the RPG Hall for veteran roleplaying gamers.
“Paizo has been a long-time sponsor of PAX Prime/West and we’re very excited to be a part of their new show dedicated to tabletop gaming,” says Tonya Woldridge, Paizo’s organized play manager. “We look forward to traveling to Philadelphia and sharing our games with PAX attendees in the eastern US.”
On Saturday at 3:00 pm, players may participate in Pathfinder Society scenario 8-99A: The Solstice Scar, a multi-table interactive special where agents of the Society aid an army of tribal warriors in repelling an ancient evil force from beyond. Drop-ins are welcome but pre-registration will guarantee a spot. Besides this special event, scenario offerings include all of Starfinder Society’s Year of the Scoured Stars, all of Pathfinder Society’s Year of Factions’ Favor, as well as a selection of scenarios from last season’s Year of the Stolen Storm. Organized play sessions are four hours long, starting at 10 am all three days. There are three sessions each Friday and Saturday and two sessions on Sunday.
Paizo organized play programs come in two varieties, one that utilize the flagship Pathfinder Roleplaying Game and another based on the commended Starfinder Roleplaying Game. Agents of the Pathfinder Society, besides being dedicated to the Society goals, developed contacts and affiliations with a variety of factions. In its ninth season, the Year of Factions’ Favor, characters join the Society as agents and utilize those contacts and resources to achieve a variety of objectives.
Starfinder Society takes place in a far future of the Pathfinder universe, wherein Golarion has been lost and no one remembers why. In the inaugural season, players work to rebuild a fractured Society while learning the truth about the Scoured Stars Incident that tore it apart. On-site registration starts at 10:00am on Friday, November 17 at PAX RPG HQ.
