We’ve been taking a look at some of the works of fiction, great and small, that help us experience the world of Pathfinder. We’ve reviewed the free web fiction, short fiction, novels (and audiobooks), and comics. Now, at last, we explore Pathfinder Legends. You might have missed them!
Big Finish and Paizo teamed up to bring you Pathfinder Legends, audio series episodes that follow the adventures of the iconic Pathfinder characters. Each audio adventure series contains six episodes following one of three Pathfinder Adventure Paths. Each of these episodes runs from one to two hours and features a cast of professional actors, sound effects, and music that immerse you into the dangerous and exciting world of Pathfinder!
Rise of the Runelords #1: Burnt Offerings
Sandpoint. An ordinary town on the Lost Coast of Varisia. When Ezren, Merisiel, Valeros and Harsk arrive, seeking rest from their adventures, it seems the town's annual Swallowtail Festival will give them what they need—until goblins attack during a ceremony to consecrate the town's rebuilt church.
After defending Sandpoint, the adventurers discover a sinister plot to return an ancient evil to Varisia. Can they discover the connection between the goblin attack and the removal of mortal remains from a crypt in the town's graveyard?
This is just the beginning of a new quest for the iconic Pathfinder characters Ezren, Merisiel, Valeros and Harsk. The Rise of the Runelords begins with burnt offerings—and only four heroes stand against it.
p>Mummy's Mask #1: The Half-Dead City
For almost 2000 years the tombs of the Necropolis of Wati have remained sealed—until now.
Adventurers from all over Golarion have travelled to the ancient city to find lost treasure and uncover the secrets of the past, but some things are best left buried. As Valeros, Ezren, Harsk and Merisiel face traps, ghosts, and undead spirits, sinister forces descend on Wati. The Mask of the Forgotten Pharaoh is about to be discovered—and an ancient evil unleashed.
Curse of the Crimson Throne #1: Edge of Anarchy
The King has died, and the city of Korvosa is in chaos! Riots, banditry, monsters, and mayhem are turning the normally safe streets of the city into a war zone. Desperate to regain control of her city, Queen Ileosa seeks heroes to aid her in reclaiming control before the largest city in all Varisia consumes itself from within as Curse of the Crimson Throne begins with a bang!
Pathfinder Legends are available as downloads, CDs or CD/Download Bundles both on paizo.com and at Big Finish at price points that vary. There are many audio samples for you to get a taste of the “audio drama” experience. If you are a fan of the old radio shows, like The Shadow, or have heard Big Finish’s full-cast audio dramas, you’ll love them!
Next week we are back to our free flash fiction with a prologue to the Curse of the Crimson Throne in celebration of the Pocket Edition release!
