This July will see loads of Pathfinder and Starfinder RPG goodness, including a new PF adventure path kicking off and a standalone SF tale, hitting stores from Paizo Inc. Expect to see these releases toward the later part of the month.
Major releases coming in July from Paizo:
The Strength of Thousands Adventure Path begins! A magic school like no other! The oldest and most prestigious magic academy in the world is the Magaambya, an ancient institution founded by the greatest wizard the world has ever known. This wizard vanished long ago, but his sinister enemies plot against his school and those who attend it. Over their long academic career, the heroes rise from humble students to become teachers, and they ultimately hold the fate of the school in their hands. Graduates of the Magaambya are among the greatest wardens of the world, but if the heroes can’t marshal the strength of thousands who have come before them, the venerable Magaambya might fall! The Strength of Thousands Adventure Path is a six-part, monthly series of connected adventures that comprise a complete Pathfinder campaign.
School’s in session! The newest students at the venerable Magaambya school of magic must begin their academic careers with tests of their skill and resourcefulness. The heroes can learn much from their teachers and fellow students, but must beware of mysterious secrets and sinister plots. The rigors facing any Magaambya students are steep, but the heroes must also contend with strange infestations and supernatural intruders in the school’s ancient halls. Education is far from easy at the oldest and most prestigious magic academy in the world!
“Kindled Magic” is a Pathfinder adventure for four 1st-level characters by Alexandria Bustion and Eleanor Ferron. This adventure begins the Strength of Thousands Adventure Path, a six-part, monthly campaign in which the heroes rise from students to teachers, and ultimately decide the fate of the Magaambya. This adventure also details other students to become friends or rivals, rules to gain extra lore throughout a year of academic study, as well as new monsters and new spells—including lore of the prestigious Magaambya!

The first stand-alone adventure for the Starfinder RPG is here! Centuries ago, the Stellar Flare—a science vessel researching the strange dimension known as the Drift—crashed on the surface of Akiton. Now, Vari-13, an android with a claim to the Stellar Flare, wants to find the wreck and rescue its valuable research. But Vari-13 will need help, and that’s where your heroes come in. The Stellar Flare’s remains lie in the middle of an enormous junk field filled with malfunctioning technology, inhabited by predatory creatures, and fought over by territorial space goblins. And there are whispers of an enormous robot made entirely of junk that wanders the scrapyards, immune to magic and eager to destroy everything in its path. Can your heroes broker a peace, reach the wreckage, and defend it against an army of scavengers? Junker’s Delight is a complete Starfinder adventure for 1st-level characters written by Jason Keeley and Misha Bushyager. It features strange new alien creatures, new spells and equipment, and an in-depth look at Khefak Depot, a rough-and-tumble Akitonian settlement home to countless adventures!
Key aliens and NPCs from the Fly Free or Die Adventure Path come alive on your tabletop with the Fly Free or Die Pawn Collection, featuring more than 100 creature pawns for use with the Starfinder Roleplaying Game or any tabletop science-fantasy RPG!

The Fly Free or Die Pawn Collection, together with the creatures and characters from the Starfinder Alien Archive Pawn Box and Starfinder Core Rulebook Pawn Collection, provides pawns for nearly every Fly Free or Die encounter. Each cardstock pawn slots into a size-appropriate plastic base from the Alien Archive Pawn Box or Starfinder Pawns Base Assortment, making the pawns easy to mix with traditional metal or plastic miniatures.
Whether the heroes are exploring the world-spanning woodlands of a living planet or racing enercycles between giant trees in a dangerous, high-speed chase, no Game Master wants to spend time drawing every tree trunk and forest trail.

A special coating on each Flip-Mat allows you to use wet erase, dry erase, AND permanent markers with ease! Removing permanent ink is easy—simply trace over any permanent mark with a dry erase marker, wait 10 seconds, then wipe off both marks with a dry cloth or paper towel.
