Paizo announces a brand new liveplay campaign that will feature the new Pathfinder Second Edition ruleset! Launching on April 4th and featuring Paizo staff members, this liveplay will be our first glimpse at the newly updated Pathfinder Second Edition rules. Exciting stuff!
GMed by Paizo’s Director of Game Design, Jason Bulmahn, the liveplay is called Oblivion Oath and will air live on Paizo’s twitch stream every Thursday at Noon Pacific for one hour. Episodes will go up on Paizo’s Youtube channel a few days later. Each week between now and launch players will take to the stream to describe their characters and answer questions, culminating in the premiere episode on April 4th. Oblivion Oath will continue for an indetermined length of time.
Jason Bulmahn will be joined by four lucky Paizo Staffers, Gabe Waluconis (Paizo’s Project Manager), Katina Davis (from Paizo’s Customer Service Team), Sara Marie (Customer Service and Community Manager), and Owen K.C. Stephens (Starfinder Design Lead). Unlike the previous Doomsday Dawn livestream, Oblivion Oath is meant to be a character driven liveplay that features the same players and characters week after week. Although it is sure to feature spoilers about the upcoming Second Edition rules, it’s not intended to teach viewers how to play Second Edition. It’s about story, and the characters helping to drive it.
Oblivion Oath takes place in Golarion in the year 4719, which makes it concurrent with the events of the final Pathfinder First Edition Adventure Path: Tyrant’s Grasp. Oblivion’s Oath is said to feature a glimpse at that AP, but not spoilers. Instead, it will be it’s own story. Oblivion’s Oath is set in the port city of Vellumis in Lastwall and begins with our (as yet unknown) PCs determined to gain passage on a barge out of the city. The barge in question, Sleepy Seacat, is scheduled to make it’s way clockwise around Lake Encarthan, heading for Caliphas (and skipping Razmiran).
And from there?
We’ll have to wait and see.
