Media Release — Dynamite Entertainment and Paizo continue to offer gaming fans a low-cost entry into the canonical comic book world of Pathfinder! The new bundle is essential for fans of the game, as it provides insight into the world of Pathfinder straight from the game designers themselves. Each issue also includes a bonus Pathfinder RPG gaming appendix with game statistics, encounters, and miniatures-scale tactical battle maps perfect for use with the tabletop Pathfinder RPG. This bundle contains over 30 comics and more than 20 battle maps, two Exclusive Maps, and even miniatures. The entire collection would cost over $100 to purchase individually, but is available now with “Pay What You Want” freedom. As an added bonus, Dynamite and Paizo are proud to now include the Pathfinder Special 2013 and “Comic Store Invasion” tactical battle map as newly-unlocked Mid-Promotion Addition!
The Pathfinder Comic Humble Bundle can be found at https://www.humblebundle.com/books/pathfinder-comic-bundle.
Today’s announcement corresponds to the Mid-Promotion Addition of Pathfinder Special 2013 and the Pathfinder “Comic Store Invasion” map, special unlocked items that broaden the narrative and gaming experience for Pathfinder fans. The Pathfinder Special contains a super-sized story that couldn’t be contained in the regular Pathfinder series, as fan-favorite characters Merisiel and Kyra explore the city of Magnimar, and face cutthroat thieves, betrayal, swashbuckling swordplay, and much more! Meanwhile, the Pathfinder “Comic Store Invasion” tactical battle map is a rare treat for hardcore fans, a map only available previously from select comic shop retailers during the launch of the City of Secrets series.
In addition to the encounter maps presented with individual Pathfinder issues, this Humble Bundle contains two original bonus tactical maps (entitled “Feast Halls” and “Infernal Sanctuary”) available exclusively with this promotion! All maps are presented at the standard 1 inch = 5 feet tactical scale suitable for gaming miniatures. These maps have never been made available to the Pathfinder audience before, a true treat for the fans!
“Our partnership with Paizo has delivered some great stories that have pleased gamers and comics fans alike,” says Dynamite CEO/Publisher Nick Barrucci. “When we found out Pathfinder was going to be the first-ever RPG bundle, we wanted to join in the campaign by offering gaming fans a full immersion into Pathfinder’s lore with canonical storytelling, game encounters, and more than 20 tactical battle maps to really enrich the fan experience. This Humble Bundle really is something for all Paizo fans!”
“Dynamite’s Pathfinder comics are the perfect introduction to the world of Pathfinder and the iconic heroes who appear in every official Pathfinder RPG adventure and rulebook,” says Paizo Publisher and Pathfinder comics writer Erik Mona. “Since the beginning, gamers have been hungry to learn more about Pathfinder’s signature characters, and the comics provide a ton of information and awesome stories about these heroes and the dangerous world they inhabit. We’re so excited to support Dynamite’s Humble Bundle that we’ve created two original tactical battle maps available exclusively in this bundle!”
“RPGs rejoice! Due to the resounding success of the Paizo Pathfinder Bundle, we are so pleased to be offering this fantastical Dynamite arrangement of comics, bonus maps, and miniatures for the RPG fan within all of us. In addition, we worked with our good friends at Paizo and Dynamite to create two Exclusive Maps to reward fans even more so. Let the good times (and the dice) roll!” says Kelley Allen, Director of Books at Humble Bundle.
The “pay what you want” model offers readers the chance to unlock over 30 comics and many Maps, two Exclusive Maps, Shattered Star Miniature Boosters, and over 1,000 pages of content, including the now-unlocked Pathfinder Special 2013.
