Was it ever settled if the Pathfinder 1st Edition PF Society stuff would continue to be run at Gencon or are they just planning on the new edition being run exclusively?
You would be better off asking on the Paizo forums. AFAIK, they haven't said anything yet (it's very early) but you can figure they'll be focusing on Starfinder and Pathfinder 2nd.
Yeah, but I didn't want any edition drama, that is why I didn't even consider the paizo forums.
FWIW, I just skimmed through the Organized Play forums and didn't see any edition drama. Regardless, what ratio of PF1e/PF2e/SF they run is partially based on feedback; if you don't go and tell them what you'd like to see your opinion won't be considered.
Otherwise, well, we'll all know in May. :)
Paizo is not supporting 1e at all anymore. Any 1st ed games would be run by a 3rd party.
They are not making new adventures or books for 1e.
Pathfinder Society for 1e is still alive and kicking and I expect there will be a fair number of 1e adventures offered at GenCon.
I'm sure there will be plenty of PF 1e games...just like you can still find D&D 1e, 2e, etc....but it is not an unreasonable assertion to believe that PFS and other games run by Paizo would be focused on 2e.
Supported or not, there will be PF 1e games at Gen Con for many years to come...just like there are D&D 1e / 2e / BX, etc.
The Con is so huge you can find most any game - or coordinate with people to play most any game.
I just volunteered for Paizo for the 7th year in a row. One of the volunteer questions was, "What would you like to run?", and PFS1 was one of the options there.
