Big announcements from the West Coast yesterday! Paizo launched a dedicated Second Edition subsite and announced the titles of several books that will be available come August 1st of this year! Here’s a breakdown of the thirteen products (so far!) that are being offered. As always, you can join us on our Slack to discuss!
Pathfinder SE Core Rulebook (Regular or Deluxe edition)
This 640-page book is being marketed as “accessible” to new players while providing the options for complexity that some players thrive on. Looking forward to seeing what’s inside!
Pathfinder SE Bestiary (Regular or Deluxe edition)
At 360 pages, this book should contain a trove of both familiar and perhaps new monsters and creatures for players to interact with.
Pathfinder SE Campaign Setting: Lost Omens World Guide
The first volume in Paizo’s new Campaign Setting Subscription, this book will jump-start any player’s understanding of the new world that Paizo has built.
Pathfinder SE Adventure Path: Age of Ashes (PFSE AP 001: Hellnight Hill)
This AP, written by the amazing Amanda Hamon (seriously, follow her on Twitter) is the first volume in the new Adventure Path Ongoing Subscription. This will be the first AP written entirely with Second Edition rules, and as it’s designed for 1st-level characters, is the perfect way to start your campaign.
Note: The Metro Boston Lodge will be offering this AP in Campaign/Adventure Mode as soon as it is sanctioned for Organized Play.
Pathfinder SE Adventure: The Fall of Plaguestone
This Module is part of Paizo’s new Module Ongoing Subscription. This Adventure was written by Second Edition’s Lead Designer himself, Jason Bulmahn. Murder! Mystery! Intrigue! Mutants?
Note: The Metro Boston Lodge will be offering this Module in Campaign/Adventure Mode as soon as it is sanctioned for Organized Play.
Pathfinder SE Map: The Fall of Plaguestone
This is the first map in Paizo’s new Maps Ongoing Subscription. It’s 24″ x 30″ and designed to go with The Fall of Plaguestone module, though I suspect it’ll be reused again in the future.
Pathfinder SE Accessories
In addition to the published books, Paizo is also launching a new line of Pathfinder Accessories that feature art from the new Iconic Heroes!
- A Combat Pad / Initiative Tracker
- A Condition Card Deck that continues the Decks’ goblin-themed history
- A GM Screen featuring three Iconics battling a dragon, and a second web-exclusive GM Screen featuring three Iconics.
- A Character Sheet Pack with three Iconics on the front cover
