We’ve been getting requests for print copies of Shadowsfall: Temple of Orcus since before Free RPG Day. And if you attended PaizoCon, you may have been lucky enough to snag one of the last few of the first printing. If you were not able to grab one then, you can now get one any time you want. Print copies of Shadowsfall: Temple of Orcus are now available at DriveThruRPG.com. Now you can get ahold of the first adventure for the Shadowsfall setting in print at your convenience anywhere in the world.
Well, we’re back from PaizoCon and we’re THRILLED! We’re PUMPED! WE ARE EXCITED! We had a great time playing games and meeting everyone. This was the largest PaizoCon yet and it was encouraging to see everyone so excited about their Pathfinder games. It was also great to have people come up to us, telling us how the Book of the River Nations has been such a game saver for their game.
We ran two role playing games: this year’s Free RPG Day Adventure and the first playtest of next year’s Free RPG Day adventure. We will be doing a Kickstarter for this adventure in October and we hope that you will support us.
I took part in two seminars and Louis of LPJ Design was right next to me the whole time. I really enjoyed doing them with him and can’t wait until next year to do them again with him. It was also fun sitting next to Gary, Scott, and …. shoot, I can’t remember who from Legendary Games was also on the panel. My apologies.
At the Paizo Preview Banquet, Tim Nightengale received the first Volunteer of the Year Award. If you haven’t met Tim, he is a great guy and he is the man responsible for PaizoCon existing as well as the guy that makes Wayfinder possible. Tim deserves this award and then some. We are really happy for him.
The cosplay at the convention was really fun. Many people dressed up as their favorite Pathfinder character. Here are a few of them. Please share with us a link to any other pictures of anyone else at PaizoCon in cosplay. Since I was still jet lagging, I was asleep during the grand convocation and did not get any pictures of the event, but I heard that there were alot of people dressed up there. Be sure to click on each of these images for a larger version.
We can’t wait for next year’s PaizoCon. We’re already making plans for it. All we need at this point are dates *Hint, Hint, Paizo* so we can get the airline tickets at that much earlier and be confirmed to go that much sooner.
This Sunday at PaizoCon, I will be running a Pathfinder game called The Yet Unnamed 2013 Free RPG Day Kickstarter Game. I am pleased to announce that it has been named: Scavengers of the Northwood Ruins. In this adventure, the players will go off on a treasure hunt, encountering some of the unique magic items (and their associated dangers of these items) of the setting.
I hope to see you there,
Later this week, Janel and I will be heading to PaizoCon. We look forward to seeing you there. Make sure to drop by our table in the Dealer’s Room and say hi. See if there is an available spot in one of two games I will be running (Shadowsfall: Temple of Orcus and the Yet Unnamed 2013 Kickstarter Free RPG Day Adventure). Check out the seminars hosted by myself, Louis Porter Jr, Scott Gable, Liz Courts, Gary McBride, and others. We look forward to seeing you there.
Since we will be gone this week, any orders placed at JonBrazer.com will ship out next week. Free PDFs will go out as soon as I am able (which might be as late as the next day).

Fight the Dark Side!
For the game master, a new plane of peril—Shadowsfall. This level 5 Adventure takes your gaming party to the Plane of Shadows. The head of the local militia and her children are missing and only the characters can rescue them. In this introduction to Shadowsfall, challenge your adventurers to brave the Land of Eternal Night.
For the avid player, four sample 5th level characters showcase new player options for the Shadowsfall setting—a dhampir champion of innocents, a former angel seeking arcane secrets and a lost love, a bomb-toting kobold native to Shadow, and a fetchling profiteer from the zombie slave trade ready for play in your campaign.
Designed to enhance your world and your game, this expansion supplies a one-page overview of Shadowsfall and features the distinctive monsters of Shadow created for the Book of Beasts: Monsters of the Shadow Plane—the newest in the award-winning series available now at the JBE Shop, DriveThruRPG/RPGNow, Paizo, and the Open Gaming Store.
Earlier this month we announced that we’re releasing several books that details the Plane of Shadows next year. One of the books we would like to do is an adventure and we would like to give it away for Free RPG Day. However to print the adventure, we need your help. We need your help to print the book so we can have it sent to game stores around the world and give it to you for free. To do this, we set up a Kickstarter campaign so you which explains all the great benefits you can get for contributing to this endeavor.
