If you are a gamer, and have always wished you could bring the world of John Carter of Mars into your Pathfinder adventure, you are in luck! Dynamite Entertainment and Paizo Publishing have teamed for Pathfinder: Worldscape, which opens the doors to gaming.
“Pathfinder: Worldscape teams up the Pathfinder heroes with the adventure fiction legends that inspired fantasy roleplaying games in the first place,” said series writer and Pathfinder publisher/co-creator Erik Mona in a statement to the press. “From Robert E. Howard’s Red Sonja to Edgar Rice Burroughs’s John Carter, Tars Tarkas, and Tarzan, to Frank Frazetta’s lost-world hero Thun’da, Pathfinder: Worldscape presents a sword-and-sorcery super-team unlike anything we’ve seen before. The series brings all of these heroes – and many of their darkest villains – to a mysterious dimension of warriors and wizards that allows us to explore the origins and impact of some of fantasy’s most influential characters.”
Yes, this is indeed a comic book series written by Mona and illustrated by Jonathan Lau, so how does this affect your RPG gatherings?
Each issue of Pathfinder: Worldscape contains a Pathfinder Roleplaying Game appendix that provides official game statistics for the greatest warriors of Hyboria, Barsoom, Golarion, and Earth, bringing beloved characters like Red Sonja and John Carter into gaming continuity! Also, an original bonus tactical map will be bound into each issue, presented at the standard 1 inch = 5 feet tactical scale suitable for gaming miniatures.
I think I may need to get some Pathfinder books, so I can bone up on the game, and get ready for an adventure of Hyperborean proportions!
Pathfinder: Worldscape #1 will debut in October.
