Paizo loves to give y’all free content for your Pathfinder games. This will continue into 2023 with the announcement of Pathfinder Quests. These will replace the previous Bounties and offer about 2 hours’ worth of gaming for your groups with each one. It’ll be a regularly recurring thing, so you can keep the adventure going throughout the year.
From the article:
I’m excited to announce that we’ve decided to bring back a bit of a blast from the past: Pathfinder Quests!
Our Pathfinder Bounties have served the purpose of short, standalone adventures since 2020. With 2023 on the horizon, however, we’ve decided that a product with a bit more length would give you all more of what you want. What that means for all of you is that, rather than new Pathfinder Bounties, you’ll soon be getting new Quests, each designed to take around two hours. (Intrepid Starfinders, you’ll still get new Starfinder Bounties, though). This will allow us to give the adventures more in-depth stories while still giving you something that can be played under strict time constraints.
The biggest difference is that Quests will be tied more deeply into Pathfinder Society than Bounties, and much like Pathfinder Society Scenarios will assume your PCs are all Pathfinders. They will reward half as much credit as a scenario—2 XP, 5 treasure bundles, and 2 reputation. Quests will have level ranges similar to scenarios. For example, the first one we’re working on is for levels 1–4. It’s set to come out in April (and might involve an Aldori swordlord). In addition to that quest, we’re aiming to have two others out by the end of 2023.
I can’t wait to show you some of the ideas we’ve got in the works for these, and I hope you enjoy playing them as much as we enjoy working on them!
