This week's preview of Pathfinder Battles: Ruins of Lastwall examines the faith of one of Golarion's newest deities. Fewer than 50 years ago, the masked man known as Razmir appeared in the River Kingdom of Melcat, and declared himself a god after having passed the Test of the Starstone. Since that fateful day, he has raised a nation in Melcat's place that bears his name—Razmiran—and stretches all the way to the shores of Lake Encarthan. All who live there are required to worship him and pay harsh tithes to his church. Because PCs are likely lining up to join his growing cult, we thought we'd give them some minis to use!
First on the list is the Razmir Cultist, a Medium common figure representing the rank and file members of Razmir's church. These are the laity of the faith and can often be found serving an influential priest or operating as enforcers of the church's will among the common folk of Razmiran. For such service, the depicted cultist has been elevated to the church rank of Herald of the Eighth Step, as indicated by their black robe and iron mask.
The aforementioned Razmir Priest is the second in the series, in elegant purple robes. They wield no weapons but can cast spells like any other priest, and thus present as much a threat as an entire team of acolytes. Rarer than the common acolyte, the Razmir Priest is a Medium uncommon figure.
Since the Ruins of Lastwall set already features so many deities, it seemed wrong not to put the setting's newest god in a rare slot. Thus, I present to you one of the most impressive figures we've ever done, in my opinion: Razmir, Living God. The intricate gold detail on his cloak is awe-inspiring, and his commanding pose demands reverence. While he'd probably have you executed for the heresy, Razmir also makes for a more generic evil spellcaster in a homebrew campaign.
Though it's not the most flattering comparison, I can't help but think of Scar and his hyena lackeys in Disney's The Lion King whenever the topic of Razmir comes up around the office. So despite being far from the deserts of Qadira or Osirion, it seems fitting to show off this set's Hyena, a Medium common figure. There's not much to say about hyenas beyond that I find their "laughs" to be among the creepiest sounds made by any animal in the real world. Now I'm going to have that sounds stuck in my head just from thinking about it. The sacrifices I make for you all!
That's it for this week. Next time we'll look at the final six figures in the set and the last piece of set dressing, including one of the most requested minis since Pathfinder Battles started, and the final deity of the set. Until then, "row like you believe."
