In celebration of the launch of the “Humble Comics/RPG Bundle: Pathfinder Worldscape Ultimate Crossover Bundle”, Paizo Inc., publisher of the award-winning Pathfinder Roleplaying Game and Dynamite Comics, publisher of best-selling comic book titles and properties, will host a live 8-hour Pathfinder and Starfinder gaming marathon on Twitch to benefit Camden’s Concert, a Cystic Fibrosis research charity. The marathon event launches October 11 at 11am Pacific Time live from Paizo headquarters and streamed at twitch.tv/officialpaizo. Kicking things off is “War for the Worldscape,” a multi-genre adventure based on Dynamite’s Pathfinder Worldscape comic, GM’d by Paizo Publisher and Pathfinder Worldscape author Erik Mona. The marathon will also include 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 Risen Rune” to wind up the all-day gaming marathon.
The schedule for the livestream is as follows:
- 11am-1pm: Pathfinder RPG: War for the Worldscape (GM: Erik Mona)
- 1pm-2pm: Pathfinder Worldscape Q&A (Erik Mona and Christopher Paul Carey)
- 2pm-4pm: Starfinder RPG Live Demo (GM: Owen K. C. Stephens)
- 4pm-5pm: Starfinder RPG Q&A (Starfinder RPG Design Team)
- 5pm-7pm: Pathfinder Society: Year of the Risen Rune (GM: John Compton)
The event also marks the launch of the “Humble Comics/RPG Bundle: Pathfinder Worldscape Ultimate Crossover Bundle” two-week campaign, featuring more than $600 of comics, games, and miniatures at a pay-what-you-want price of $1.00 or more. Bundle offerings include comics featuring Pathfinder Worldscape guest stars like Herbert West Reanimator, Vampirella, 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 (hardcover collection of issues 1-6 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), as well as four Pathfinder Worldscape gaming figures based on Red Sonja, John Carter of Mars, Tars Tarkas of Mars, and Tarzan. Additionally, the campaign will include an exclusive preview Starfinder figure compliments of Ninja Division, who is currently running the Starfinder Masterclass Miniatures Kickstarter effort.
The special Pathfinder Worldscape issues are:
- Pathfinder Worldscape: Herbert West, Reanimator One-Shot By Erik Mona
- Pathfinder Worldscape: Warlords of Mars: Dejah Thoris One-Shot By Christopher Paul Carey
- Pathfinder Worldscape: Vampirella One-Shot By Erik Mona
- Pathfinder Worldscape: Swords of Sorrow One-Shot By Erik Mona
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.
