Player Companion: Paths of the Righteous

Those who serve honorable causes and worship the gods of goodness face dangerous and devious threats. To bolster them in their quests, their religions develop potent techniques and astonishing powers to reward those who follow the noble and devout course without fail. Pathfinder Player Companion: Paths of the Righteous presents more than a dozen prestige classes, each associated with a different good-aligned deity and customized to enhance your gameplay, whether your character’s a member of a widespread religion or one that’s relatively obscure. – Pathfinder Player Companion Package #25 is available now for only $4.99! This package includes at least one other book to be added when it’s released


Campaign Setting: The First World, Realm of the Fey

Explore the First World, the legendary realm of the fey, where reality reinvents itself and strange creatures peddle stranger wares to the unwary. Learn about the godlike Eldest who rule this plane, and how to navigate their fairy courts. Delve for legendary treasures in locations too weird for mortal lands, study the lost origin of gnomes, and bargain with ageless adversaries in a realm where death is seen as a game. Whatever you do, don’t blink—because nothing in the First World stays the same for long. – Pathfinder RPG Campaign Setting #17 also includes Inner Sea Temples and Horror Realms for $4.99



Strange Aeons: The Whisper Out of Time

With their memories once again intact, the adventurers continue their pursuit of Count Lowls. But first they must visit Cassomir, where they believe the wayward noble is meeting with an old associate, but find only danger in his absence. Next, they travel to Katheer, capital city of Qadira, to track down a blasphemous tome in a hidden library, only to discover Lowls has stolen the vile book. They then venture to the slave-trading city of Okeno to pick up the count’s trail again and encounter the mysterious and alien entity that has been haunting their dreams. If they can’t stop their crazed nemesis before his plans come to fruition, doom will come for all! – Strange Aeons 1-6 $24.99


Mythic Hero’s Handbook

The Mythic Hero’s Handbook brings you an incredible array of expansions for the mythic rules for the Pathfinder Roleplaying Game! You’ll find exciting and innovative ideas for existing rules alongside a wealth of all-new material from the authors that know mythic like nobody else. You’ll find options galore to suit any character build and inspiration for new heroic directions to take on your path to immortality, whether your character is a holy hierophant or treacherous trickster, an indomitable champion or inventive genius, a steadfast guardian of others or a steely-eyed stranger ready to launch a roaring rampage of revenge! – Mythic Hero’s Handbook $19.99





Coming Soon

Hero High is headed your way as a free add on! Look for an M&M release update later this month!

The Shadow Academy is on the loose downtown, but the prom is tonight and, worse yet, you’ve got a make-up test tomorrow! But then nobody said things were simple at Hero High!

Teenaged superheroes have hard lives … just ask them. After all, being a normal teenager is difficult enough: school, work, parents, friends, dating, and more without complicating matters by adding super-powers and a secret identity to the mix!

Hero High takes a look at the genre of teen heroes (and villains!) for the Mutants & Masterminds, Third Edition RPG. It contains everything you need to run a teen hero series of your own, with all the trials and tribulations that entails. There’s everything from an overview of the genre to breakdowns of its components and how to use them to create your own unique setting and series.

There’s even an interview with Marvel’s Executive Editor Tom Brevoort, who offers his insights on teen heroes and why they’re so fun and compelling!

Hero High is revised and expanded for Mutants & Masterminds, Third Edition and includes information on the students and faculty of the Claremont Academy, where the heroes of tomorrow receive their training!  It also includes the villainous Shadow Academy and the troubled teens who call it home. Plus, there are a dozen heroic archetypes so you and your friends can start playing right away!
