In celebration of the launch of the “Humble RPG Book Bundle: Pathfinder Worldscape presented by Paizo and Dynamite,” Paizo, publisher of the award-winning Pathfinder Roleplaying Game and Dynamite Comics, publisher of best-selling comic book titles and properties, will host 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 launches January 11 at 11am Pacific Time, streamed live from Paizo headquarters on Paizo’s Twitch channel at twitch.tv/officialpaizo.
Customers can support the charity effort by visiting the Humble Bundle campaign page at: https://www.humblebundle.com/books/pathfinder-worldscape-book-bundle
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 highly anticipated 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). Pathfinder Worldscape was called “One of the best comic book events of 2016” by OutrightGeekery.com.
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.
