We soft-launched Open Enrollment back in December, then took some time to work out the kinks. Now we're ready to tell the world about the big changes Open Enrollment brought to Pathfinder Online, the additional improvements our surprisingly small two-person development team continues to make, and more specifically our new pricing of just $5 per character per month.
First, though, let's take a moment to look back at the tremendous strides made during Early Enrollment, all with the help and support of our amazing community:
As part of this change, we also tripled any unused game months on accounts that already existed when Open Enrollment soft-launched, along with adding two more months to any accounts that were active at the time. You can see how many months of game time your account has on your Rewards page.
Launching Open Enrollment doesn't mean the end of development for Pathfinder Online. Since then, we added a new role to the game, the Combat Alchemist. With their Alchemist's Tools and Formula Books, and Bandoliers loaded with Reagents, Combat Alchemists specialize in healing and protecting allies with elixirs, buffing (while simultaneously debuffing) themselves with mutagens, or damaging enemies with bombs and other alchemical items. They have a full complement of feats to train at the Visiting Combat Alchemist Trainers, and will soon have their own structures and a new tutorial. We've also started work on transferring our servers to the cloud, upgrading to the latest version of Unity, and adding even more content to the game.
As we're welcoming many new players to Open Enrollment, we're also in the middle of our Home Sweet Home Event, making this a particularly good time to visit the Echo Woods. Until Daily Maintenance on Monday, July 6, 2020 (or later if widespread school and workplace closures continue), rare event raw materials and salvage items are available for gathering and looting, and sets of these items can be exchanged for a choice of recipes/expendables and raw ingredients.
If you have any questions at all about Open Enrollment, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Also, and we really can't repeat this enough, thanks again for everyone's support over the years, from the Kickstarter, to the Alpha, to Early Enrollment, and now during Open Enrollment. Thank you for joining us on this adventure, and on the many adventures ahead.

I'd also like to thank everyone for being so welcoming to all the new players checking the game out after the recent round of emails went out to make sure account-holders were aware of the changes Open Enrollment brought to their account. It's been great seeing so many players in Thornkeep and so much great advice flowing through the chat window. It's also nice to have my new Combat Alchemist's loot selling so much more quickly at Thornkeep's Auction House.
This blog post is obviously an extension of that email outreach, and we're planning to do more such outreach now that we're officially in Open Enrollment. The email itself required a fair amount of updates to our email system, but going forward we should be able to make better use of email (when appropriate) with that work behind us. We're also trying to do a better job of coordinating our outreach to multiple outlets, and we'll be posting about this blog to Discord, Kickstarter, Facebook and Twitter shortly as an example of that effort.
