The new Pathfinder Campaign Setting:  Tombs of Golarion presents a number of deadly dungeons and tombs for the Pathfinder game world.  The 64-page softcover book includes a number of adventures including new monsters, traps, and treasures, as well as suggestions for game masters who want to include them in their own campaigns.

The Pathfinder Player Companion:  Melee Tactics Toolbox will be a 32-page softcover book with new rules and game materials designed to enhance melee combat in the game.  This book was written with the player in mind, designed to appeal to them rather than gamemasters.  MSRP is $12.99.

According to hobby channel news website, Paizo Publishing will release Pathfinder Unchained, a 256-page hardcover of optional rules that change some of the fundamentals of the Pathfinder RPG, in April 2015.  Among the optional rules will be redesigned barbarian, monk, rogue, and summoner classes; a new action economy; new ways of designing monsters and treasure on the fly; a new resource pool for martial characters; and a new system for modifying spells with powerful spell components.

Players can pick and choose the systems they want to change in their game, from minimal changes to a new play experience. 

Could this be part of a potential “answer” to Wizards of the Coast’s brand new D&D Next?

Paizo Announces ‘Pathfinder Battles: The Lost Coast’


Paizo announced details on its next set of Pathfinder Battles miniatures, according to hobby industry news website  The Lost Coast set will release in November.

The Lost Coast set will contain 45 figures, and unlike previous sets, will not be based on characters from a specific Pathfinder Adventure Path, as previous sets Reign of Winter and Wrath of Righteous were.  Instead, this release will be a broad-based set based on multiple Pathfinder RPG products, but with a specific focus on the popular region of Varisia, which has been the setting for previous Adventure Paths and other releases.  

The set will include monsters, heroes and humanoids inspired by previous releases, as well as new monster types not yet released in this figure line.  The case incentive figure will be the “Gargantuan Shemhazian Demon,” which is also the largest figure produced to date.

Each Lost Coast booster contains 1 large figure and 3 medium/small figures.  The Lost Coast Standard Brick contains 8boosters (32 total figures.) The Lost Coast Standard Case contains 4 Standard Bricks (32 boosters, 128 figures).
