New Ancestries, Free Orcs, & Pathfinder Society Updates

Good day, Adventurers! I know I’m late with some of this information, but it’s been a pretty busy time for me and I am still working to get caught up with all the changes taking place in life and in Pathfinder. Back in November, Paizo released Lost Omens: Impossible Lands for publication. This entry into the Lost Omens setting line details a land still scarred by a war between two undying archmages and their respective nations, reality defies the rules binding the rest of the world. Cities crafted by wishes and fields harvested by the walking dead lay in between lands where magic warps and twists with an undefinable will. Explore the history of immortal wizard kings, wield explosive and unusual technology, and channel awe-inspiring legends in a region where the present is still haunted by the past, and echoes of destruction still shudder across the minds and souls of its inhabitants and visitors.

With this volume we also got five new ancestries: the Ghoran, Kashrishi, Nagaji, Vanara, and Vishkanya have all been approved for Society play. I’ve updated the chart and am attaching it right after this paragraph. Also, due to the revolutionary atmosphere generated by Paizo and other publishers as they work on the ORC license as a response to the underhanded conniving of WotC and its dastardly attempt to control the tabletop RPG market, another ancestry in the Pathfinder Second Edition line has become free to play! Yes, the Orc ancestry is now free to play by any Society player in 1e, 2e, and Starfinder.

If you have trouble reading these images, you can see the Google Doc I created.

This brings us up to 13 Lost Omens books that have been released so far. But, there are two more in the pipeline for March and June of 2023.

We also have two new rulebooks coming out in 2023 as well. Treasure Vault will bring us over 600 new items in February while Rage of Elements introduces us to the Kineticist class, new monsters, and the gateway to elemental power in July.

As always, we are bringing you plenty of Pathfinder 2e gaming at our various lodges in Northeast Missouri and West Central Illinois. Check the Google calendar on the righthand side of this page to see what games are playing near you. If you have never played Pathfinder Society and are interested, just contact us at and we will connect you with the nearest event. We may be expanding the League of Aroden’s size in the next few months as more game stores seek out organized play games to host. How big is Pathfinder you ask? Paizo just sold out of the physical copies of the 4th printing of the CRB in three weeks. That means their newest shipment has completely been sold out to distributors and customers at the Paizo warehouse. Good thing the pdf versions are available.

Did you know that there is a new set of digital tools being constructed for Pathfinder 2e? Go check out Pathfinder Nexus to see the next evolution in digital gaming. They have a free primer which is quite handy for new players who are just getting their feet wet in 2e and haven’t purchased the CRB yet. I strongly advocate using that to help new players get started. Remember that players can change pretty much everything about their character until they play their first session as a level 2 character. This means they can get started and then change the character around after the first three sessions as they learn more about the game.

Finally, you can always check out Herolab Online and their free Level One character builder. This allows anyone to make Level One characters using the CRB on HLO. After that they can move to another character builder or begin to buy the HLO content as they need it. I’ve found HLO to be very helpful and useful ever since the first day of Second Edition’s release.

That’s all I have for you today! I hope to see you at a table in the near future and roll the d20 with you!
