‘Pathfinder’ to release two new books in April 2016


With the release of the new Dungeons and Dragons rule set, a lot of other RPGs probably found themselves taking a back seat. However, many of those systems are still alive and kicking. One such system is Pathfinder. And today, it was announced that Pathfinder has plans to release two new source books in April. These two new books will be called Ultimate Intrigue and Heaven Unleashed.


pathfinder ultimate intrigue core book

According to the report, Ultimate Intrigue was created from tons of input from the Pathfinder fan base. Pathfinder even had an “open playtesting cycle” to help make the book.


“The 256-page full-color hardcover book delves into the types of challenges that cannot be resolved through brute force or magic, but relies instead on social skills and clever plotting.”


In addition clearing things up, the book will also introduce a new core character class known as the Vigilante.


“[The Vigilatne] spends days as a respected member of society and nights avenging the downtrodden.”


Those who purchase the book will also find it to contain “new social-based character options for the game’s many skill-based character classes, rules for influencing community organizations, social combat and verbal dueling…”


The other new book, Heaven Unleashed, will be a new campaign setting that surrounds itself in politics and agendas of the celestial races. So, for you hardcore role players, this sounds like the best chance for you to show of your acting skills.


“Thirteen holy champions are featured in this 64-page, full-color softcover book, each with complete stat blocks, encounter notes and maps, and guidelines for encounters involving both good- and evil-aligned characters.”


Ultimate Intrigue will carry an MSRP of $44.99 and Heaven Unleashed will carry an MSRP of $22.99.


Both books are due out in April of 2016.

Paizo Publishing Announces Expansion for Popular ‘Pathfinder Adventure Card Game’

Paizo Publishing has announced details for the next set for its popular Pathfinder Adventure Card Game: the Wrath of the Righteous Base Set and Character Add-On Deck will both release in April.

The Wrath of the Righteous Base Set will feature characters, locations, equipment, magic, monsters, and villains from the hellish demon battle-themed 2013 Pathfinder RPG Adventure Path of the same name.  The game offers seven character classes–including four new ones (arcanist, cavalier, inquisitor, and summoner).

The box will contain more than 500 cards and include six polyhedral dice (including the first d20 in the game), as well as The Worldwound Incursion Adventure Deck, the beginning of the Wrath of the Righteous Adventure Path.  The game is for 1-4 players.



Like previous releases, there will also be a Character Add-On Deck as well as future monthly Adventure Decks.  The 110-card Character Add-On Deck expands the game to accommodate 5 – 6 players, and includes four new characters, including three new classes (bloodrager, hunter, and shaman).  It also includes more monsters and items to fill out the game.  The new classes and characters are fully compatible with previous Pathfinder Adventure Card Game releases.
