With New Wrath of the Righteous Base Set, and New Season of Organized Play, Mere Mortals Need Not Apply
REDMOND, WA (May 27, 2015): Paizo Inc., publisher of the award-winning Pathfinder Roleplaying Game, announces today the release of Pathfinder Adventure Card Game (PACG): Wrath of the Righteous, the newest base set for the wildly popular, cooperative card game.
In Wrath of the Righteous, the hellish Worldwound opens, unleashing a horde of demons from the post-apocalyptic Abyss. Players will battle the malevolent minions of the demon lord Deskari, and along the way, will become mythic heroes that rival the greatest legends the world of Golarion has ever know.
Says Tanis O’Connor, Pathfinder Adventure Card Game Designer, “Season of the Righteous will take the gleeful insanity of the Season of the Shackles, and turn it up to 11. Demons, cultists, and much more will await your party of adventurers in the dangerous of wastelands of the Worldwound.”
The PACG: Wrath of the Righteous Base Set includes:
- More than 500 cards, featuring a new set of boons for your characters to collect, new monsters, and barriers of a decidedly abysmal nature
- 7 character classes, including the all new arcanist, cavalier, inquisitor, and summoner
- The Worldwound Incursion Adventure Deck, a 110-card deck that begins theWrath of the Righteous Adventure Path
- A complete set of 6 polyhedral dice, including the first d20 in the PACG
As with all PACG Base Sets, gameplay can be supplemented with additional decks, such as the Character Add-On Deck, and monthly Adventure Decks (sold separately).
With the launch of the new Base Set comes the kick-off of The Season of the Righteous, Season One of the Pathfinder Society Adventure Card Guild Organized Play Program. New features for this season of organized play include:
- Allowing characters to use promo cards from WizKids’ Pathfinder Battles: Iconic Heroes miniatures line as part of the player’s class deck
- New advancement system for ease in table-mustering at small- and medium-sized events
- A brand new PFSACG Guide to Organized Play
Pathfinder Adventure Card Game: Wrath of the Righteous is available at hobby game stores nationwide, as well as on paizo.com.
