On The Cheap: Get A Whole Mess Of ‘Pathfinder’ RPG Books For $15
We’re going to go ahead and assume that the kind of people who read websites that are primarily devoted to intense opinions about comic books and jokes about the Bottle City of Kandor are also going to be pretty interested in good deals on dice-based roleplaying games about fighting dragons with magic swords.
If that’s the case, here’s some good news — and if you’re a person who’s been thinking about getting into RPGs but didn’t know where to start, it’s even better. This week, Paizo Publishing and Humble Bundle launched a deal where $15 will get you 43 books worth of dungeon-crawling, character-creating, spell-casting fun — including a good chunk of the brand-new Hell’s Rebels adventure path.
If you’re not familiar with the concept of an Adventure Path, it’s basically the same thing as a story arc in your favorite comic: A series of interlinked adventures that take characters through a single campaign, starting at level one and ending when they save the world — or, you know, completely fail because someone rolled a natural 1 three times in a row. But maybe that’s my own experience talking.
In this case, it’s Hell’s Rebels, which kicked off towards the end of 2015 and saw the player characters make an attempt at overthrowing the diabolical government of Cheliax. And when I say “diabolical,” I mean it in the literal “consorting with demons” sense.
On top of that, there are a ton of core books and other stand-alone adventures that’ll set you up with all you need to get started, except a bunch of like-minded friends, which hopefully you’ll have anyway.
And if you don’t have the dice, well, that’s covered, too: In a rarity for the Humble Bundle, there’s a $25 level that actually includes the physical Pathfinder Beginner Box, a starter set with basic rules to get you going.
The Pathfinder RPG Humble Bundle runs for the next two weeks.
