Pathfinder Second Edition is almost here, and Paizo has announced a flurry of previews, interviews and more leading up to the launch at Gen Con. The company has unveiled the schedule of events on their official Twitch channel letting fans know when to tune in and what’s on the way.

* “Character Creation” with Mark Seifter
Friday, July 12th, 1:00 p.m. – 2:00 p.m.
Pick the brain of Designer Mark Seifter as he explains Pathfinder Second Edition’s extensive character customization system. How do you determine stats? What choices do you have? What kind of classes are there? How customizable are they?

* “Playing the Game” with Logan Bonner
Wednesday, July 17, 1:00 p.m. – 2:00 p.m.
We all need to know the basics of how to play and how Pathfinder Second Edition makes your gaming experience more streamlined and intuitive. That’s where Logan Bonner comes in. Logan will be showing off combat, magic, exploration, the action economy, and more. Get into the nitty-gritty of Pathfinder Second Edition’s game mechanics.

* “Advancing Your Character” with Stephen Radney-MacFarland
Friday, July 19, 1:00 p.m. – 2:00 p.m.
So now that you’ve been playing your character, overcoming hazards, slaying monsters, and gaining experience throughout your adventures, how does leveling work? Senior Designer Stephen Radney-MacFarland will join me to elaborate on how your character concept can be brought up to the next level. How do you add skills and feats? Maybe you’d like to multiclass? You don’t want something generic, you want something that’s uniquely your own. You’re going to love the tremendous amount of customization and paths you have to explore during the leveling process!

* “The World as We Know it” with James Jacobs
Wednesday, July 24, 1:00 p.m. – 2:00 p.m.
What is in store for your character in the world of Golarion in the Age of Lost Omens? We will start with the basics and grow from there with Pathfinder Creative Director James Jacobs to elaborate on the detailed countries, biomes, creatures, and stories available for you to explore–including our first adventure path for Second Edition: Age of Ashes.

* “Running the Game” with Jason Bulmahn
Friday, July 26, 1:00 p.m. – 2:00 p.m.
Who motivates the monsters? Who controls the villagers asking you for help? Will the dangerous red dragon kidnap the helpless maiden? Why does this darn key keep bringing our party such bad luck? Jason Bulmahn will be sitting with me and demonstrating how to wield the cosmic power as a Game Master in Pathfinder Second Edition!

Pathfinder 2E will arrive on August 1st, just in time for Gen Con in Indianapolis, and is among the most anticipated RPG releases of the year. It will bring streamlined mechanics to combat, expanded character creation options and other significant changes across the board.
