Something Sinister in Sandpoint!
Get your monthly dose of Pathfinder in an all-new format!
You've longed for tales about our iconics—those characters you've seen over and over again in our Pathfinder artwork—and now you'll get a front row seat to read all about them with our Pathfinder Comics!
In Pathfinder #1, something is afoot in Varisia—not a surprise, since this wild land holds many secrets from ancient empires long since relegated to dusty historical tomes and theses on magical theory. A random encounter on the road has Valeros fighting against a pack of goblins, along with the magic-wielding Seoni and the knife-loving Merisiel, but goblins are a cowardly lot, and don't attack during the day...normally. However, these goblins are anything but normal, bearing strange scars and growths upon their bodies, and our party, along with their ally Ezren, enlist the aid of the dwarven woodsman Harsk to track down more of these unusual goblins. Goblins don't travel alone, though, and our group may have stumbled upon something quite big indeed.
Pathfinder Comics is foray into the world of comics with our partner Dynamite Entertainment. Written by Jim Zub and illustrated by Andrew Huerta, you'll get an exciting, adventure-packed introduction to the world of Golarion that will have you eagerly awaiting the next issue to see what trouble our iconics can get themselves into! (Answer: A lot.) Check out all of our Pathfinder Comics here, and subscribe now to get your own copy (with a Paizo.com exclusive cover) delivered directly to you!
Spirit Bound to Flesh!
New Pathfinder Roleplaying Game compatible products from your favorite publishers!
Not everyone learns magic by studying dusty tomes, praying to a deity, or channeling inherent talent. Some learn to bind spirits to their flesh, and now your character can too with Pact Magic Unbound! Radiance House originally released their pact magic material for d20, and now it's ready and waiting for your Pathfinder Roleplaying Game—and available as both print and PDF! Besides 32 of the most popular spirits from their earlier tomes, you'll also get new archetypes for all of the core classes, a new domain, rage powers, rogue talents, oaths to take for paladins, and plenty more—not to mention Occult feats and binder secrets!
Radiance House isn't the only one with new releases—GenCon resulted in a whole raft of new releases, some of which have wound its way into our store! Hot off the digital downloads we have Dreamscarred Press's latest psionic artifact, the Dancing Robes of Sharatwan, along with Little Red Goblin Games' Legendary Levels: Magic. Both of these bring exciting new magic items to your campaign, letting your players create their own legends and tales of their power!

AdventureAWeek.com has you covered if you need more quests with "Alagoran's Gem" and "Goblin Cave"! If you're looking for more swashbucklin' goodness (ya-harr), check out Tattlebox #3: A Pirate's Life from Zombie Sky Press, or maybe brave the ocean depths with Alluria Publishing's Cerulean Seas: Waves of Thought, or bring a bit of fortune to your next treasure hoard with 10 Luckbringer Magic Items from Rite Publishing (or maybe prey upon character flaws with Monsters of Sin #5: Pride from Open Design)!
For player character options, Abandoned Arts has not one, but four new archetype-focused PDFs for barbarians, druids, rangers, and witches. Super Genius Games reloads their creative barrels with three Bullet Points PDFs, 10 Feats of Fear and Fearlessness, 5 Haste/Slow Feats, and 5 Unseen Servant Feats!

A Big ol' Pile of Them Bones!
Get in on Reaper's Bones Kickstarter Before it Ends!
The clock is ticking on a one-of-a-kind deal from Reaper Miniatures—one that any tabletop gamer is not going to want to miss!
Affordable and high quality miniatures from one of the best miniature companies in the biz? Nearly 10,000 backers have said "Yes please!" to one of the biggest game-related Kickstarter projects ever and stomped every stretch goal presented—and then some! Have no idea what I'm giddy about? Let me explain...no, there is too much. Let me sum up. Gamers love their miniatures, and they really like the Bones line of plastic miniatures released by Reaper Miniatures. But Reaper just can't produce them fast enough, and plastic molds are phenomenally more expensive than those old metal molds. So Reaper has turned to Kickstarter to raise the funds for a whole bunch of new plastic molds, and the initial response has been overwhelming!
How overwhelming? Reaper modestly proposed $30,000—enough for thirty new molds to double the available miniatures in the Bones line. Current funding has them at sixty times their goal, and you may ask yourself "Why should I kick my hard-earned gold pieces towards something that's already funded?" Because you're guaranteed to get not just one miniature, or two, or even twenty: we're talking hundreds of miniatures at the Vampire backer level! This is one heckuva opportunity to start your minis collection if you're a new gamer, or round out your collection if you've been gaming long enough to wear your d20 out into a sphere! Even better, Paizo's CEO Lisa Stevens has given her enthusiastic two thumbs up to the Kickstarter project, and now you'll get a chance to have our iconic heroes from the licensed Pathfinder Miniatures included in your backer level (along with a pile of our delightful Goblins)! All of the miniatures that you get are the same great sculpts that you'd expect from Reaper Miniatures, only easier on the wallet!
Bad Moon Rising!
New Pathfinder Module now available!
Ancient observatories may peer deep into heavens, but your characters aren't going to get to enjoy it with the latest Pathfinder Module!
Some people look up to the night sky and wonder; others look up in fear. With Pathfinder Module: The Moonscar, your characters may just end up doing both! People are going missing, the kind of people that can normally handle themselves when being accosted, and from all over the Inner Sea region—not to mention one of your dear friends! When a member of the Pathfinder Society's ruling council sends you and your party a personal request to find out what's happened, you'll end up not just far from home—you'll end up far from everything you hold dear, on the moon itself! There, you'll face off against creatures native to the unforgiving moon's surface, as well as ones that you wouldn't expect to find gazing down upon the blue and white orb of Golarion...but no less deadly! For 16th level characters, this module also includes suggestions for game masters running any of our Adventure Paths to integrate this adventure into their campaign, giving them a way to begin adventures beyond Golarion and to distant worlds!

Let the Year of the Risen Rune Begin!
New Pathfinder Society Scenarios available!
Season 4 of our Pathfinder Society Organized Play program started just a few days ago—are you ready to explore deadly ruins for ancient treasures?
Venture-Captain Sheila Heidmarch has opened up the city of Magnimar to the Pathfinder Society—time to head out west to Varisia for new adventures! This month with the season opening we have four new scenarios for you to play through, starting off with "Rise of the Goblin Guild!" For 1st through 5th level characters, this scenario serves as an introduction to the new lodge in Magnimar. Skullduggery is afoot though, and for once, the Pathfinder Society isn't implicated! This time, you're the victim, and the hunt for the thief will lead deep under the City of Monuments to discover a very interesting group of thieves indeed!
Up next and for hearty agents of 3rd to 7th level, "In Wrath's Shadow" sends you packing on a fast sloop across the Varisian gulf—but in a good way! The ruins of an ancient stronghold belonging to one of ancient Thassilon's runelords has been uncovered, and a relatively undisturbed temple a key find for the Pathfinder Society. Your job is to clear out the temple of any danger—whether ancient or modern—so that scholars can safely explore the ruins.
There are a couple things that Magnimar is known for—after all, a place called the City of Monuments has to have a few key places that any traveler shouldn't miss. The Golemworks of Magnimar is one of these places, and is known throughout the Inner Sea for their skill at crafting these automatons. In "The Golemworks Incident", something is amiss. For 5th to 9th level characters, this scenario sends Pathfinder Society agents to aid the arcane organization in hopes of garnering favor with them.
For the final scenario that we released at GenCon 2012, the Pathfinder Society has a huge problem—namely, finding a safe path from the green lowlands of Varisia up to the Storval Plateau. A likely route has been found at the iconic site known as the Storval Stairs, but somebody got there first, and they're not letting anybody pass without their say-so. Will your agent use lies, diplomacy, or the point of their blade to get by in "King of the Storval Stairs?" For 7th to 11th level characters, you might want to leave the new adventurers back at home in Absalom's Grand Lodge!
Back to Where it All Began!
New Pathfinder Player Companion!
Get ready for an all-new Pathfinder Player Companion, with a brand-new layout to give you exactly the information that you want!
We can't help ourselves—we love Varisia. It's where Pathfinder started five years ago, and with Pathfinder Player Companion: Varisia, Birthplace of Legends, we're back to give you a bigger and better overview of the region! Get a quick overview of new rules with the Rules Index, allowing you to quickly locate new archetypes like the kapenia dancer, traits like Ex-Sczarni, Harrow Chosen, and Sandpoint Faithful, but also new feats like Thunder and Fang! Give your character touchpoints with "Five Things Everyone Knows about Varisia" when traveling in this untamed land, and gain guidance on common character roles like the cypher hunter, Magnimarian warden, Sable Company marine, Shoanti outrider, or Varisian bravo. Is your character of an arcane persuasion? Perhaps they studied at one of Varisia's famous arcane schools, like Korvosa's Academae or the elite Stone of the Seers in Magnimar—maybe even Riddleport's Cypherlodge! Also, with Varisia, Birthplace of Legends, finally gain long-awaited information about the Shoanti quahs and the territory that they occupy, as well as Varisian caravan routes, commons roads, and their travel times! The best part? All of the Pathfinder Player Companions are the perfect handout for players, and provide a tantalizing hint at some of the adventure paths that are set in the realm of Varisia!
Check out all of our Pathfinder Player Companions here, and get all the information that your character needs to survive in the world of Golarion!
Seven Sky-Shards Under the Setting Sun
New Pathfinder Adventure Path now available!
In the city of Magnimar, you can't avoid the past—the crumbling Irespan that looms over everything is a monument of ancient Thassilon, so naturally, this city has attracted a few members of the artifact-seeking Pathfinder Society. In "Shards of Sin", as one of the newest members of the Magnimar Pathfinder lodge, you and your compatriots are charged by Venture-Captain Sheila Heidmarch to find out why Natalya Vancaskerkin has gone rogue. Along the way, you'll uncover more than just a missing person case—you'll find out that you're on the hunt for a legendary artifact! This hunt will send you to all corners of Varisia, and with the first adventure penned by longtime Adventure Path author Greg A. Vaughan, you'll get a ride that your rookie Pathfinder Society agents aren't soon to forget!
We never stop with just the adventure in our Adventure Path volumes! We always pack in tons of supporting information to help gamemasters craft their campaigns to 11, and we'll give you an article discussing the very artifact that's the focus of this Adventure Path in "Shards of Sin". But if you've been waiting for us to spill the goods on the infamous skymetals of Golarion, don't miss this issue! You'll get the powers (and side effects) of materials like abysium, djezet, horacalcum, inubrix, noqual, siccatite, and of course, the most famous skymetal of all—adamantine! Author Bill Ward of "The Box" web fiction returns with a new Pathfinder Journal, this time dealing with that rough-and-tumble town of Riddleport, and you'll get new creatures to add to your campaign like the bishop agathion, vile fleshdregs, and my new favorite familiar option—wolpertingers!
Check out all of the Pathfinder Adventure Path volumes here, and be sure to pick up Pathfinder Player Companion: Varisia, Birthplace of Legends, Pathfinder Campaign Setting: Magnimar, City of Monuments, and the GameMastery Item Cards: Shattered Star Adventure Path to round out your Shattered Star campaign!
Gotta Get Geared Up!
New Pathfinder Roleplaying Game hardcover now available!
There's adventure to be had, and the bad guys aren't going to wait for you to finish shopping. Grab your gear and go with our latest Pathfinder Roleplaying Game hardcover!
You've got your character built—abilities are allocated, skills selected, feats chosen, heck, you've even got a name...but what about gear? Time to go shopping with our latest Pathfinder Roleplaying Game hardcover, Ultimate Equipment! With every option that your character could want (and then some) in one location, you won't be flipping through a huge stack of books to find just the right piece of equipment--just one! Just a smidge under 400 pages, this hefty tome contains not just starting gear like studded leather armor or more exotic fare like do-maru or four-mirror armor, but exotic materials like angelskin, blood crystal, Elysian bronze, living steel, or the disease-ridden viridium. Besides the "arms and armor" part of your character's gear, we have maps, alchemist's kits, glue of every kind, coffee pots, cypher books, perfume, stilts—even full kits for all of our base classes!
But we're not even at the halfway mark of Ultimate Equipment.
Hundreds of pages are devoted to magic items of every kind in Ultimate Equipment. Need to put a lock on an enemy caster? Have the party cleric or wizard cast dispel magic on the barbarian's dispelling burst earthbreaker, or have the ranger use their phase locking longbow to prevent a hasty retreat. Gunslingers will love the burrowing bullets, and antipaladins will want to arm themselves with the classic mace of terror or nine lives stealer. Both old and new magic items are all in one place, but unlike before, the wondrous items list is now sorted by slots, so you can quickly find the right magic item to add to your character. Both artifacts and intelligent items return in a big way (along with cursed items), and you might find the staff of the magi—or unearth the Bottle of the Bound!
Of course, the dealer of the loot needs to have a way to easily hand out the party's hard-earned prize. With Ultimate Equipment, we've given game masters a new way to generate treasure (a way that long-time gamers will be smiling over). You'll be able to generate a dragon's hoard with just a few dice rolls, which lets your game master focus on the story, instead of whether or not that owlbear had gold or silver pieces.
Fight the Good Fight—No Matter Where it Takes You!
New Third-Party Pathfinder Roleplaying Game releases!
It's time for another roundup of third-party Pathfinder Roleplaying Game releases that you may have missed—can your game handle new dungeons, high-level bad guys, new dragons, or going beyond 20th level?
What's worse than facing off against a lich? How about facing off an insane lich where the secret of his destruction isn't just hidden, it's hidden away in another reality entirely? In "Fractured Phylactery," this adventure from Gaming Paper will challenge your 15th+ level characters with everything they can muster, because the journey alone will tax their resources. But facing down against the lich in its own lair...will your heroes walk away from this one? Written by John Ling and with maps by Robert Lazzaretti, you are not going to want to miss this high stakes, high level adventure!
Of course, there's plenty of other new releases for your Pathfinder Roleplaying Game besides adventures like "The Swamp Isle of the Croaking Priestess" from Spes Magna Games or "Teeth of the Storm" from Run Amok Games. Spruce up your dungeon with Dungeon Dressing: Pools or craft maddening visions with Portentous Dreams from Raging Swan Press or shake up player expectations with #30 Variant Dragons from Rite Publishing. Make your game truly memorable with rules for 20th level and higher play with Legendary Levels II from Little Red Goblin Games, or introduce the Helm of the Hydra to your Dreamscarred Press psionics game. Abandoned Arts has four new PDFs covering new archetypes—perhaps your Fighter needs to utilize chain and whip better with the lasher archetype, for example. Speaking of more character options, surely the spontaneous casting druid in The Expanded Shaman from Open Design might appeal, along with new feats for the shield and lightning bolt spells from Super Genius Games!
Everybody loves free product, right? Newcomer Butterfrog Studio has the Field Guide to the Butterfrog, full of tidbits about this strange creature, while we learn more about the steampunk world of Terah with Classes from Rossi Publishing Games. In addition, Rite Publishing has their free e-zine, Pathways #17 concerning the topic of hellfire, and Dreadfox Games has a free preview of their Grimoire Cognitas, delving into the world of divination magic!
That was just a small taste of what our third-party publishers have released this month! Check out all of the third-party releases available right here!

Two New Pathfinder Subscriptions available!
We've got not one, but two new presents for you this month: new Pathfinder subscriptions!

Starting this month, our story begins in the realm of Varisia, with some of your favorite Pathfinder iconics! The fighter Valeros, along with the dagger-loving elven rogue Merisiel and sorcerous Seoni, begin to unravel a plot concerning the goblin tribes that infest every part of Varisia like locusts. Usually about as organized as a herd of cats, the goblin tribes are growing stronger—and more organized. Something is behind their new-found unity—something that our heroes are determined to find out! With the Pathfinder Comics subscription, you'll get not one, but two choices for your subscription! The Ongoing subscription nets you one copy of the Paizo.com exclusive cover (such as the awesome Goblin Iconics version by Tyler Walpole), but the Deluxe Ongoing subscription will get you the Paizo.com exclusive cover—along with the four standard covers for each issue!

We said, "Great idea!" We announced the Bestiary Box. You said, "More please!" We said, "All right then, let's do this thing!" and now you can get these affordable miniatures delivered right to your doorstep with the Pathfinder Pawns Subscription!

When the Lights Go Down in the City
New Pathfinder Tales novel here!
Nobility has a way of complicating things in the latest Pathfinder Tales novel, Blood of the City. Out on the steppes of the Storval Plateau, when you want something, you take it, but among Magnimaran nobility, saving face and plying the political web of power makes getting what you want a bit more difficult. Luma, able to hear the whispers and murmurs of Magnimar's cobbled streets as sure as any tavern song, aids her siblings of the Derexhi family. Together, they consider themselves "problem solvers" for the city's elite, but even though she's the oldest, her half-elven heritage earns her little respect—or trust. Not every job is a cakewalk though, and when a job goes terribly wrong, Luma finds herself in the prison known as the Hells, tangled up in a wave of bloody power plays and unable to trust those she once held dearest. Written by Robin D. Laws, author of The Worldwound Gambit, "Plague of Light", "The Ironroot Deception", and "The Treasures of Far Thallai," Blood of the City will send you along for a grand ride through murder, mayhem, and intrigue in the City of Monuments!

I Stab at Thee!
New Pathfinder Adventure Path now available!
Swash that buckle pirate, it's time for the final part of the Skull and Shackles Adventure Path!
You've survived being a swabbie, felt the lash of wind and wave, proven yourself to the Free Captains of the Shackles, and supped on the icy cold dish of revenge in the first five parts of the Skull & Shackles Adventure Path. Now your crew of scallywags face the threat of an invasion fleet in the sixth and final part, "From Hell's Heart!" The enemy has survived the Eye of Abendego, arriving unscathed on the opposite side with little more than a tattered sail here and there to speak of their journey. The freedom-loving citizens of the Shackles, while just as likely to take your ship when you're not lookin', won't tolerate being preyed upon by any but their own. Your crew must rally the Free Captains to defend their ports and isles, before the enemy fleet strikes before they can mobilize! It's a tough battle, but when the PCs meet resistance from an unexpected quarter, things suddenly get even more complicated. With a naval battle that will be remembered for years, "From Hell's Heart" is going to be an explosive finale to our swashbucklin' Skull & Shackles Adventure Path!
Aside from the adventure, we have many other delightful articles in this Adventure Path volume! You'll get tips on how to expand your Skull & Shackles campaign beyond the finale, new rumors and terrors to spice up your game (such as the return of a favored artifact from the early days of fantasy roleplaying), and of course, new aquatic monsters to terrorize the most stern-faced sailor! The mysterious addu, the fearsome drowning devil, the pallid sword-toothed faceless whale, and burning gargiya are just some of the beasties in this volume—and you won't want to fail your saving throws against them!
