Pathfinder One-Shots provide an ongoing series of single-session adventures designed to fill three to four hours of game play. Each includes pregenerated characters to make it easy to jump into the action right away. The character sheets are beautifully illustrated and contain fully-developed characters with backstories related to the adventure that make for great cooperative storytelling around the gaming table.
As Paizo has embraced more digital initiatives, the ability to present gaming content in a digital form is an important component to contemporary gaming, and One-Shots provide players with what they need to play on virtual tabletops and across other platforms of choice. With the high-resolution maps and image handouts included, these adventures should be easy to add to various virtual tabletops. Fantasy Grounds plans to have these available in March 2021, with other partners working on making these available natively on their platforms. Paizo has no plans to offer these adventures as a subscription or print product.
Sundered Waves by Jason Bulmahn, was the first Pathfinder One-Shot released on March 6, 2021. To celebrate the launch of the new product line, Sundered Waves was accompanied by two free web supplements—a set of pregenerated characters and some digital wallpapers—and a livestream.
On Saturday 6 March 2021, from the Gen Con Spring Showcase, Paizo sponsored a livestream on the GenConTV Twitch channel called Pathfinder One Shot: Sundered Waves at Gen Con (direct link) based on the adventure to celebrate the launch of the new product line. Afterwards, the recording was published on Paizo's YouTube channel. The livestream featured the return of the original cast of the livestream series of Pathfinder Beginner Box: Troubles in Otari.
