Your loyal venture-officers and organizers have fallen a bit behind the announcements for a number of reasons. This is a summary of the series that should help you get up to speed on recent Organized Play updates!
Program-Wide Changes and Updates
Table Size Changes
The minimum table count for adventures that can be run with pregens is now 2, plus two pregens. If no pregens are available, for some reason (usually because the adventure is high level), the new minimum is 3 players.
Previously, the minimum was 3 players and a single pregen, or 4 players for adventures in tiers/level ranges that didn’t have pregens available.
Paizo is working to digitize their offerings and the Org Play program. That includes moving boons–including boons on chronicle sheets–to paizo.com, moving guides away from the PDF format and online, and providing maps at higher resolutions–and, sometimes, in JPEG format!
Pathfinder 2nd Edition
Changes for Season 2 PFS2 Characters
The new Season 2 guide’s been released! Fame’s going away, you should rebuild your school selection, and clerics and druids need to learn spells now. Oh, and you should also figure out where you’re from.
Core Rulebook Errata
The new errata for the CRB is out, and we need to rebuild our characters. The biggest two changes are to Enhanced Resistance and the vesk natural attack.
The New Season 3 SFS Guide
The new season 3 guide was released, including new races and languages, and a new faction.
Odds and Ends
These things didn’t merit a full post, but they might apply to you:
- Paizo has updated their Community Use Policy (The changes are supposedly minimal)
- The Org Play team posted a blog post explaining the two systems in PFS2 that determine whether you have “access” to a character option: rarity and and availability.
- Michael Sayre left Organized Play, but not Paizo. Stepping into the vacated role of PFS developer is James Case, and Jenny Jarzabski is rounding out the updated team.
