Well, I’ve got good news and bad news.
The bad news first: Keith Baker is not coming to Ropecon, after all. Considering his travel schedule, it’s not a surprise that burnout is threatening, and he’s got a deadline three days after the convention. It is understandable but unfortunate. We’ll try again next year.
The good news, then: Paizo Publishing has announced that the Pathfinder RPG PDF will be selling for $10. In real money, it’s about €7,1, or about 1,3 beers at O’Connell’s down the street. There’s no real excuse at this point not to buy it if you’re even mildly interested in the game. It’s 576 pages long, and will be released on August 13th.
I’m spending the weekend in Tampere and had the occasion to run Pathfinder Society for Thanuir of Cogito, ergo ludo. He posted his feelings about the adventure and the campaign to his blog. It’s interesting to read players’ accounts of games I’ve run, and his opinions are even more interesting since his usual gaming style is very different from mine.
Also, apparently BoardGameGeek.com is working on a sister site for roleplaying games. I can’t find an ETA for the finished product, but once it’s done, it ought to be all kinds of awesome. The ability to track my RPG collection online holds a certain interest for me and my ego. I measure my worth as a human being by my bookshelf.
