Join a halfling summoner, a dwarven wizard, a half-elf magus, and a kitsune witch to get a first look at some of the exciting new content in the upcoming Pathfinder Secrets of Magic, and watch as they uncover the true danger that awaits them in the sands of Thuvia! This unique, 10-episode, actual play show starts tonight at 6 PM Pacific at Twitch.tv/OfficialPaizo!
Four esteemed graduates from the College of Mysteries in Absalom are sent to a tiny desert village in eastern Thuvia along the banks of the Junira River. Rumor has it that everyone in this small community has suddenly developed magical abilities. Power that, if left unchecked, might spell their doom. Perhaps even more troubling, even those who just visit the town receive powers as well! Can these four spellslinging scholars work together to get to the bottom of this mystery before rogue magic tears the place apart?
Take a look at your heroes and a behind the scenes look at their character art orders!
Xander Jeanneret as Ingot - @Xanderrific
Ingot is a male dwarf with white hair, blunt bangs, long sideburns, and a well-groomed white beard. He has round gold spectacles and crystal jewelry hanging from his ears, around his neck, and on both wrists. He wears purple robes, has a large, leather-bound spellbook with a large crystal on the cover at his waist, and even more crystals hang from his belt. In one hand, he has a wand with a crystal tip that he’s using to cast some powerful cold spell. Color palette focuses for this piece are purples, whites, gold.
Michelle Nguyen Bradley as Hachi - @iamchubbybunny
This illustration depicts a female kitsune. She has bright, white fur with red markings on her cheeks, forehead, and the tips of her nine tails. She wears a sheer, dusty grey-blue dress that has silver accents and fittings (like shoulder guards, and silver ribs like a corset; see reference). In one hand, she has a silver and blue wand with a star and moon motif. Her other hand is stroking a small, pale, white and blue dragon (an east Asian dragon shape, more like a snake) that’s coiled up on her shoulders. It has a ruff of fur around its head, white like the kitsune’s.
London Carlisle as Dond Oom - @LondonCarlisle
Dond Oom is a half elf of Garundi descent. He has warm brown skin, pointed ears that protrude from the loose curls of his jet black hair, and brown eyes. He’s dressed in elaborate, finely tailored clothing, including a finely made tunic under an embroidered vest as well as well-made trousers tucked neatly into mid-calve boots. Over his vest, he has a navy blue long-coat. In one hand, he has a fan of playing cards (he’s a gambler by trade), and in the other, he has a wide-bladed shortsword that has a hint of magic running up and down the blade, flowing from his hand.
Color palette for this piece is blue with accents of red, white, and gold embellishments.
Bonnie Gordon as Fairel - @BonnieBellG
Fairel is a female Uhlam halfling. She has light skin with freckles and a rosy completion from having spent long days out in the wild. Her hair is reddish/brown, and it runs a bit wild with twigs, leaves, and maybe even a small vine wrapped up inside (some of it looks accidental, but a few bits might be intentionally placed). She’s barefoot, wearing a rough spun tunic and simple breeches that mostly have earth tones with green highlights and leaf patterning. Overall, it looks like she might have rolled around in a bush a bit. Around her neck, she has a wolf-tooth pendant. She holds a gnarled walking staff in one hand, while mystical green runes surround her other hand, as if she’s casting a spell. Finally, she has a mystical symbol on her neck, like three comets trailing each other. This symbol is identical to the one on her wolf companion.
This image is of a full-sized wolf. It’s large enough for Fairel to ride. Its coat is mostly gray, but it has some brown/red highlights. It too looks like it has rolled around in the underbrush a bit, as it has leaves and twigs caught in its fur. On its neck, it also has a mystical symbol, like three comets trailing each other. The wolf has a fierce expression, but it isn’t actively snarling. Color palette focus here is on greens and warm browns.
