Fiction with the Iconics


Tales


Aside from the comics, are there any other sources of fiction that the iconics appear in? Trying to get a better idea of their personalities that just the little blip given in their blogs.

The iconics don't appear in any of the novels (aside from a brief mention that's more of an Easter egg than a cameo), but they've nevertheless appeared in both the comics and Pathfinder Legends audio dramas.

Valeros has a bit more expansion of his backstory in the Pathfinder Adventures digital game (in the Fighter's Tale DLC), and Amiri is featured very prominently in Pathfinder: Kingmaker (as a core companion).

All of the iconics have a Meet the Iconics blog that appeared when they first debuted in the game, and the 12 2E iconics each have an Iconic Encounter piece of web fiction previewing some of their 2E abilities.

We're always looking for more venues to tell the iconics' stories, so if you have suggestions, I'd love to hear them. Thanks for your interest!

I forgot about Legends, I’ll have to see if I can give that a listen.

As far as venues go, I can’t really say. The comics and novels seem to be problematic. I think the easiest thing would be to re-introduce the fiction at the back of each ap book, specifically featuring an iconic or iconics. For me personally digital games don’t work very well, I don’t even own a computer, and my phone screen is prohibitively small for gaming (though I recognize that I am probably in the minority as far as technological access is concerned).

So yeah. Short of being able to reintroduce novels or comics (my preference is novels), I guess short stories are the way to go.
