Paizo Recognizes the United Paizo Workers

Fish Kill side ad

In what is a victory for union organizing, Paizo has announced that it has voluntarily recognized the United Paizo Workers union, which is affiliated with the Communications Workers of America (CWA).

In the announcement, Jeff Alvarez, President of Paizo said:

We look forward to working with the union to continue and expand our efforts to make Paizo a better place to work and to ensure that Pathfinder and Starfinder products continue to exceed gamer expectations for many years to come.

The next steps will involve the United Paizo Workers (UPW) union electing their bargaining representatives and then meeting with Paizo management to negotiate terms for a collective bargaining agreement. This process can take some time, but Paizo has said they are committed to the effort and hope to settle a contract in due course.

In the press announcement, Paizo event went so far to encourage following the UPW on Twitter for future updates!

The UPW made its intentions known a week ago today laying out the reasons for their organizing. You can read more about that here. With lots of chatter about working conditions within the game industry, is this the beginning of a broader movement?

Pathfinder Adventure: Night of the Gray Death Takes You Into a Poe-like Adventure

Fish Kill side ad

Galt’s executioners are the masked and mysterious Gray Gardeners. Held above the laws of the chaotic nation, these grim killers soak the revolution-wracked land in dread and blood. They behead the guilty and innocent alike with their magical guillotines, but few possess the courage to stand against them. As the heroes race from haunted crypts to the elegant opulence of an ill-fated masque, the midnight chime will bring salvation or doom to a nation.

Pathfinder Adventure: Night of the Gray Death is for 16th-level characters.

We show off the adventure as well as the corresponding flip-mat.

Unboxing: Yu-Gi-Oh! Trading Card Game: Cyber Strike Structure Deck

Fish Kill side ad

Master the forbidden Fusion arts that combine fierce Dragon and Machine monsters with Cyber Strike!

Cyber Strike enhances both of Zane Truesdale’s strategies from the Yu-Gi-Oh! GX anime! This is one of the most customizable Structure Decks yet. You can choose to focus on Zane’s original Cyber Dragon Fusion strategy, his Dragon-based Cyberdark strategy, or play both together in a single Deck like in the later seasons of Yu-Gi-Oh! GX.

Cyber Dragons! You can fuse together multiple copies of Cyber Dragon with Power Bond to create Zane’s signature Cyber End Dragon and raise its ATK all the way to 8000! It’s easier than ever thanks to a brand-new monster that can add Power Bond from your Deck and let you use monsters in your Graveyard as Fusion Materials for it.

Cyberdarks! Load your Graveyard with Dragons, then equip them to your “Cyberdark” monsters to power them up! Use Cyberdark Impact! to fuse together the original 3 “Cyberdark” monsters to create Cyberdark Dragon or use Overload Fusion to fuse any 5 “Cyberdark” Effect Monsters to create Cyberdarkness Dragon instead.

Both! Why choose just one when you can have both? Structure Deck: Cyber Strike specializes in fusing these two strategies together into a powerful hybrid strategy, and the ultimate symbol of this fusion is a new fusion of Cyberdark Dragon and Cyber End Dragon! This 5000 ATK powerhouse can also be Summoned by Tributing Cyberdarkness Dragon while equipped with Cyber End Dragon, so even the requirements for playing your new boss monster are flexible!

And More! With the new Spell Card Cybernetic Horizon, both strategies can fuse with no malfunctions! This card allows you to add a Dragon or Machine “Cyber” monster to your hand and fill your GY with Cyber Dragon or Machine monsters necessary for Overload Fusion! Reach for the horizon and grasp your victory.

Paizo Staff Launch United Paizo Workers to Unionize

Fish Kill side ad
United Paizo Workers

Announced in a series of tweets, over 30 members of the Paizo Publishing staff have formed United Paizo Workers (UPW). The movement is one of the first unions of its kind in the tabletop game industry. This is the first step to invoke a vote to form a union at the company. The organization is working with the Communications Workers of America (CWA).

Paizo is the game publishing company behind roleplaying games such as Pathfinder and Starfinder. The UPW has stated that Paizo’s workers are underpaid for their labor and are required to live in one of the most expensive cities in the world. There have also been claims of issues with management at the company including inconsistent hiring practices, pay inequity, harassment, and verbal abuse.

While changes have been promised by the executive team at Paizo, the UPW sees that collective action is the only way to guarantee that.

You can learn more at the UPW website which also has suggestions on how individuals can show their support.

The Verminator and Bloodspawn are Coming to Blood Bowl

Fish Kill side ad

Two new bruisers are coming to the Blood Bowl pitch.

Kreek ‘The Verminator’ Rustgouger has been revealed and might be the greatest Skaven creation to ever walk the pitch. The monster of a player swings a nugget of warpstone and as per “I’ll Be Back!” will not be sent-off the pitch as per the secret weapon trait for the first time and may continue as part of the game. But, with a fee of 170,000 GP, you’ll need to save up to field him.

Kreek ‘The Verminator’ Rustgouger

Khorne is going to clear the pitch easier with the mutated murder monster Bloodspawn. For 160,000 GP you get a strength 5 player with Claws and Mighty Blow as well as Frenzy. This is a beast of a player who will challenge other big guys.

Unboxing: Yu-Gi-Oh! Trading Card Game 2021 Tin of Ancient Battles

Fish Kill side ad

The second piece of an ancient legend stands before you! The 2021 Tin of Ancient Battles builds (literally!) on the foundation of the 2020 Tin of Lost Memories, featuring the middle section of the mysterious Pharaonic tablet discovered in Egypt! (Most Duelists never noticed, but the 2020 tins, and now the 2021 tins, have embossed/debossed sides, and rimless lids that fit flush with the tin body, allowing the tins to be stacked on top of each other to build the entire Pharaonic tablet once all three pieces have been assembled!) The eternal clash between the spirits of the Dark Magician and the Blue-Eyes White Dragon are immortalized in this carving, along with 3 brand-new World Premiere cards to give these monsters a new power boost. Like the 2020 Tin, each 2021 Tin of Ancient Battles will contain 3 extra-large Mega-Packs, each with 1 Prismatic Secret Rare, 2 Ultra Rares, 2 Super Rares, 1 Rare, and 12 Commons!

We open up the tin and what’s inside and you can get a chance to see what you might get!
