Tabletop roleplaying games your thing? How about card games based on a popular RPG? Well Paizo has you covered.
At GAMA Trade Show Paizo, the company responsible for the popular fantasy RPG Pathfinder, revealed more of its plans for its Pathfinder Battles miniatures lines. According to Paizo:
The world of Pathfinder comes to life on your tabletop with Pathfinder Battles, an ongoing line of prepainted plastic miniatures produced in cooperation with WizKids, Inc. Drawn from the award-winning illustrations of the Pathfinder Roleplaying Game and produced with the highest-quality standards in the miniature business, Pathfinder Battles fantasy miniatures set a new standard for hassle-free tabletop gaming!
With the most recent release named Iconic Heroes this partnership is not only putting out new sculpts of some of the most familiar faces from their Pathfinder universe for use in the RPG, they are also including exclusive “Boon” cards to be used with the Pathfinder Adventure Card Game (PACG) series. The first set includes six miniatures (with the same amount of cards for PACG) and is available now. Sets #2 and #3 of the Iconic Heroes series are due in April 2015.
Speaking of Pathfinder Adventure Card Game, Paizo announced the third core set at GAMA. This set is titled Wrath of the Righteous and will include:
More than 500 cards featuring a new set of boons for your characters to collect, and never before seen monsters and barriers of a decidedly abyssal nature.
7 character classes, including the all-new arcanist, cavalier, inquisitor, and summoner.
The Worldwound Incursion Adventure Deck, a 110-card deck that begins the Wrath of the Righteous Adventure Path.
A complete set of 6 polyhedral dice, including the first d20 in the Pathfinder Adventure Card Game.
You hear that, the series noted for not including the fabled d20 has brought one in! If the trend of the past two releases hold true, expect to see a Gen Con 2015 release for this product.
Good job Paizo for bridging that small gap between the RPGer and the boardgamer!
