New Pathfinder Comic/RPG Humble Bundle, Digital Exclusives And Twitch Marathon

Posted by January 11, 2017 Comment

pathworld01covabrown-2Humble Bundle is offering up their first ever Comic / RPG bundle featuring Paizo’s Pathfinder Roleplaying Game and the comic adaptations from Dynamite Entertainment. To go with the new bundle, Paizo will be hosting a live 10-hour Pathfinder and Starfinder gaming marathon on Twitch to benefit Camden’s Concert and The Comic Book Legal Defense Fund. The marathon kicks off today at 11 A.M. PST and continues until 9 P.M. PST, streamed live from Paizo headquarters on Paizo’s Twitch channel at twitch.tv/officialpaizo.

The schedule for the livestream is as follows:

11-1: Pathfinder RPG: Into the Worldscape (GM: Erik Mona)
1-2: Pathfinder Worldscape Q&A (Erik Mona)
2-4: Starfinder RPG Live Demo (GM: Jason Keeley)
4-5: Starfinder RPG Q&A (Starfinder RPG Design Team)
5-7: Pathfinder Society: Year of the Demon (GM: John Compton)
7-9: Pathfinder RPG: Iron Gods Adventure Path (GM: James Jacobs)

The event launches with “Into the Worldscape,” a multi-genre adventures based on Dynamite’s Pathfinder Worldscape comic, GM’d by Paizo Publisher and Pathfinder Worldscape author Erik Mona. The charity marathon will also include the first public look at Starfinder, the new science fantasy RPG from Paizo, plus a live game demo and an audience Q&A with the Starfinder RPG design team. Pathfinder Society developer John Compton will host “Year of the Demon” and Paizo creative director James Jacobs will run key encounters from Pathfinder’s Iron Gods Adventure Path.

The event also marks the launch of the “Humble Comics/RPG Bundle: Pathfinder Worldscape and More!” two-week campaign, which features more than $500 of comics and games at a pay-what-you-want price. Bundle offerings include comics featuring Pathfinder Worldscape guest stars like Red Sonja, John Carter of Mars, and Tarzan, while Pathfinder RPG components provide rules and adventures similar to the “anything goes” multi-genre events in the popular new Pathfinder Worldscape sword & sorcery crossover event (issue #3 of 6 on newsstands now).

The bundle also includes a collection of four exclusive Pathfinder Worldscape one-shot comics (each with a short Pathfinder RPG appendix and a pull-out poster map). The special Pathfinder Worldscape issues are:

Pathfinder Worldscape Special #1: King of the Goblins
By James L. Sutter

Red Sonja Worldscape Special #1: Dungeon Queen of Mars
By Erik Mona

John Carter, Warlord of Mars Worldscape Special #1: Rebels without a Planet
By Erik Mona

Tarzan Worldscape Special #1: Forest of Nightmares
By Christopher Paul Carey

These special issues will not be available in stores, ever. They will be collected in the eventual Pathfinder Worldsape comics hardcover and a limited number with a Paizo-exclusive cover will be available months later for Pathfinder subscribers. This special charity event is the first follow-up to Paizo and Humble Bundle’s previous record-breaking livestream gaming event, which raised more than $250,000 for charity.
