PAIZO PUBLISHING DEBUTS KEY PATHFINDER PRODUCTS AT GEN CON INDY
Pathfinder Adventure Card Game, Mythic Adventures and Visions of WAR: The Art of Wayne Reynolds Out Now
REDMOND, WA (August 15, 2013): From the exhibit hall of Gen Con Indy, Paizo Publishing, LLC, leading publisher of fantasy roleplaying games, novels, game accessories and board games, and the world’s best-selling Pathfinder Roleplaying Game, announces the release of three new Pathfinder products: the Pathfinder Adventure Card Game, the new Pathfinder RPG hardcover Mythic Adventures, and Visions of WAR: The Art of Wayne Reynolds. All three released today at Gen Con Indy, and are available to purchase at Paizo’s booth in the exhibit hall (booth #203), on paizo.com, or at hobby game shops nationwide.
Designed by Mike Selinker and Lone Shark Games, the Pathfinder Adventure Card Game (PACG) translates the most popular Pathfinder Roleplaying Game (RPG) into an entirely new breed of card game, where players adventure, battle monsters and villains, and acquire new feats, items, weapons, and allies—all without a Game Master! The Pathfinder Adventure Card Game: Rise of the Runelords Base Set, based on the award-winning Rise of the Runelords Adventure Path, includes dice, nearly 500 illustrated cards, and everything one to four players need to create characters and begin their adventures for an entirely new Pathfinder gaming experience. The base set has an MSRP of $59.99.
Mythic Adventures also offers a new way to play the Pathfinder RPG, using familiar rules but adding a new layer to the game. Mythic adventurers are elevated above their non-mythic counterparts, gaining powers and abilities beyond their reach that allow them to take on tougher foes and more daunting challenges. A Mythic character takes on the agents of deities, rushes headlong into the abyss, and strives to build a legend, all while facing-off against a wide variety of foes from common monsters to other mythic characters and legendary creatures. Mythic Adventures has an MSRP of $39.99.
Visions of WAR: The Art of Wayne Reynolds is a journey through the amazing worlds of master artist Wayne Reynolds, a 256-page hardcover retrospective of more than 10 years of work from today’s leading fantasy illustrator. Packed with full-color covers, interior art, and card art from award-winning work on brands like the Pathfinder Roleplaying Game, Dungeons & Dragons, World of Warcraft, Magic: The Gathering, and more, this book has an MSRP of $29.99.
The Pathfinder Roleplaying Game puts you in the role of a brave adventurer fighting to survive in a world beset by magic and evil. Players take on the role of a canny fighter hacking through enemies with an enchanted sword, a powerful sorceress blessed with magic by the hint of demon blood in her veins, a wise cleric of gods benevolent or malign, a witty rogue ready to defuse even the deadliest of traps, or any of countless other heroes. The only limit is a player’s imagination.
The Pathfinder Roleplaying Game builds on more than 10 years of system development and the largest open playtest in the history of tabletop gaming to create an unparalleled fantasy roleplaying experience. Players need only the Pathfinder RPG Core Rulebook to play, but Paizo Publishing produces a wide range of books and accessories to enhance your Pathfinder experience, from hardcover rules compendiums to complete campaigns to packets of beautiful full-color maps.
