Paizo Recognizes the United Paizo Workers

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

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.

Paizo Staff Launch United Paizo Workers to Unionize

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.

A New Pathfinder Comic Comes to Kickstarter!

Dynamite Entertainment and Paizo Inc. are launching a new Pathfinder comic book. It’s currently being funded on Kickstarter and live right now with lots of cool extra content for fans!

Pathfinder: Fumbus is a 40-page standalone special issue starring the riotous eponymous goblin alchemist. The mischievous goblins of Pathfinder have always been one of the iconic roleplaying game’s most signature features, but now with the new Second Edition ruleset and the added alchemist class, Fumbus takes a starring role in his pursuit to join the Pathfinder Society. With appearances from characters like Seoni, Ezren, and more, it’s a chapter not to be missed!

Writer and lifelong tabletop RPG addict Fred Van Lente has worked closely with Paizo’s creative shepherds to craft this tale alongside returning Pathfinder artist Tom Garcia. They’re joined by the vivid colors of Vinicius Townsend, and lettering of Tom Napolitano.

Just like Dynamite’s previous Pathfinder titles, this comic book comes with extra content that will entice longtime fans of the RPG, with lore and scenario writing that can translate right to one’s next game night. Six whole pages of playable content, including new alchemical and magic items, rules for trapmaking, and a character sheet and stat block for Fumbus himself.

Those same great qualities make the world a perfect fit for comics books. Dynamite has worked closely with Paizo to produce comics for nearly a decade across 11 graphic novels. Many of Paizo’s top internal creatives like Erik Mona and F. Wesley Schneider have contributed to the titles, as well as top creators in the comics industry like Jim Zub (Avengers, Conan the Barbarian), Crystal Frasier (Immortal Hulk, Cheer Up), and Carlos Gomez (Red Sonja, America Chavez). As part of the Kickstarter pledge options, fans can stock up on the previous comics as well.

For collectors, Dynamite is offering a fun glow in the dark version of Tom Garcia’s cover, as well as a limited character sheet variant. Fan-favorite artist Ken Haeser is also doing sketch covers and remark sketches. Those looking for the ultimate Pathfinder haul can turn to the deluxe set, which comes packed with an exclusive custom D20 die, CGC graded copies of the comics, a character trading card, a set of graphic novels, and the gorgeous Seoni statue.
