Super Promo Card


Pathfinder Adventure Card Game General Discussion


Today, I heard that there will be a "Super Promo Card" included in every 50th Mummys Mask base set.

How many base sets will you buy trying to finding that card?

You heard wrong.

Right, it's not 1 in 50. It's 1 in 100. ;)

I'll be buying one base set. I'll let you know what the "Super Promo Card" looks like. ;)

Do you then sell it to me?

I need to have 5 of the "super promo card" and buying 500 base sets to acquire those is really almost impossible.

Where did you hear it from?

Given Mike's comment above, you should probably correct them. I'd be disappointed if Paizo followed the path of creating super-rare promos. But I'd be very annoyed with the rumormongers if I ended up out of pocket through false reports such as this (either from fruitlessly buying copies I don't need or by being scammed).

It's a MyFly post, and Brother Tyler is playing along. There is absolutely no super promo card.

What was that quote associated with PT Barnum? (But in actuality, he never said!)

Just why, Myfly. Just why?

Hey MyFly, I just created a Super Hyper promo Card on Drivethru, so here's the deal :

I trade it for 50 Mummy Base sets.

And the Kick er : if Germany wins the Soccer Euro here is Paris, I trade it for a single base set.

Am I cool or what?

I realise that. Mike was pretty clear.

My point was that if Myfly heard it somewhere, he should correct them.

If he made it up, he should stop because it could well turn out to cost someone money and/or to enable scammers. It's not just a silly joke.


I *really* was told so... I didnt believe it, so i tried to check here in the forum.

Theyron once also tried to set me up with some non-existing promos.

Either it is right was the other Mike says OR there is really a super secret promo coming up and they wont tell us by now. Otherwise it is no surprise anymore. You know the promo card strategy is always a holy secret.

PS: Picked up "Blood rage" in the game shop, when i heard that rumor.

Here is the deal:

If France wins the Euro Soccer Championship, i will send you a Mummies Base Set.
And when Germany wins the Championship, you will send me a Mummy Mask base set.

Is it a bet, or not?

Oh, come on ... I'm sure I've teased you more than once about non-existent promos. I know I've mentioned a signed GenCon only promo that we ran out of. (Not true.) And I think there might have been a US-only promo I spoke of. (Also not true.)

If you did hear a rumor about a super secret promo to be included in random MM base sets, and Mike (Selinker) says it's not true, you can probably bet it isn't true. If you're just trying to stir up things by saying "Exclusive" or "Premium" Promo card, all I gots to say is "sucka" to anyone that falls for it.

In any case, after seeing the artwork prototype at PaizoCon for the upcoming GenCon-only promo, I'm stoked to be going!


Ohh, there is the Con only promo coming up soon....
What is it?


.... And dont FORGET to pick up TUP promo on next Saturday. She is waiting for you...
Is it a she or he?

Perhaps, but they don't use deceptive language, they use evasive language. They say "We have nothing to announce at this time" or "We currently have no announced plan for a super promo card" or similar.

That's not what happened. You didn't come here and ask if it was true, you came and treated it as if it were true.

Casual readers of the forum or new members who don't know who you are and your penchant for speculation and fascination with promo cards may well be led astray. Silly jokes is fine but this is one that could easily cost others money (or make them stay away from a game with "super-rare" elements - I know I have no time for such games).

Either way, you shouldn't post speculation as if it were fact and you should correct whoever told you it was true.

Not really a fair bet hehe. We all know Germany always win in the end.

Are you a sissy or a man able to sustain the pressure of the possibility of loosing a bet? ;)

I am just a clever cleric. I never take a bet unless I have the power to throw in some blessings to change the odds. Don't blame me, not this Mike told me that lesson.

Sorry, this one isn't multiple choice. It's an essay.

Hopefully this will help in your quest to gender sort the card characters, Myfly.

Yes, I confess.

I love friendly paladins.


Uuups, just saw it..

TUP is RotR and not MM!
What is going wrong there?

I love paladins, too. Who else are the best to tempt?

I prefer Theryon, Arbalist and Creator of Mischief, thank you. (Not that I have enough crossbows!)

As for Tup, Myfly, yes he's a RotR character. It is, afterall, Season of the Runelords. (And I'm not sure how many Goblins you're going to find in the desert.)


Today I paid for the super promo card and it is already in the mail towards my home.
Hopefully it arrives tomorrow in good shape as it was very expensive!

Folks, please don't make things up about promo cards. Not everyone is savvy enough to understand when something's a joke, and these things can take on a life of their own.

Here are the promos we currently have planned. (Nothing here will be news to anyone who's been paying attention to the blogs, and to what we've done with previous sets.)

• This Saturday, June 18, is Free RPG Day. This year's Free RPG Day PACG promo card is Tup. For those who don't get him on Free RPG Day, he will later be available for sale on paizo.com and at our Gen Con booth. He'll also go out along with subscription copies of the Mummy's Mask Base Set in October. (Tup is actually a Rise of the Runelords promo—the character was tied to Rise of the Runelords in Pathfinder Adventure Path #100, and he's being issued to promote Season of the Runelords.)

• Class Deck subscribers will be getting promo cards along with the two Goblins decks in July. Goblins Fight! comes with Goblin Lockpick and Blessing of Zogmugot (both originally Skull & Shackles promos), and Goblins Burn! comes with Fire Sneeze and Blessing of Zarongel (both originally Rise of the Runelords promos). These cards are not reprints—they are from the original print runs.

• The first Mummy's Mask promo card will be our convention promo for the next year. Just like every other AP to date, it will debut at Gen Con. Subscribers will also get it along with their Mummy's Mask Base Set in October.

• As always, we'll be sending promo cards to retailers with each monthly Mummy's Mask release, and those promos will also go out with subscription copies of those products.

• As always, we have a couple other MM promos that we'll sneak in during the run, and we'll pack them in with MM subscription shipments at the appropriate time.

(At this time, I don't have anything to report on future Iconic Heroes sets. Should further information become available, it will likely be featured in one of Erik's Friday Paizo blogs.)

Vic's post reminds me of a question I have ... I'm going to be at Origins this Saturday. Does anyone know if it's possible to get Free RPG Day stuff at Origins anywhere? I would like to not have to miss out on Tup until Gen Con or even October.


Vic,

I was just holding my breath reading the long promo message...

Why didnt you create new promos for the Goblin Iconic Heroes decks???
I already got those named ones quintible times ;-)

Is there a GTM magazine promo scheduled for MM again???

With the super promo in my mail, i meant TUP who will soon hit my post box :-))))
