PAIZO ANNOUNCES LAUNCH OF THE MUMMY'S MASK, LATEST ADVENTURE PATH FROM THE WORLD'S BEST SELLING ROLEPLAYING GAME

 An Ancient Undead Pharaoh Returns to Conquer Osirion

REDMOND, WA (March 12, 2014): Paizo Inc., leading publisher of fantasy roleplaying games, accessories, board games, and novels, announces today the next highly anticipated Adventure Path for the award-winning Pathfinder Roleplaying Game, Pathfinder Adventure Path: The Mummy's Mask.  The first installment of the adventure, The Half-Dead City (MSRP $22.99), is available now, with the remaining 5 installments to be released monthly through August 2014.

The Mummy's Mask Adventure Path begins in the city of Wati, where the priests of Pharasma have opened the city's long-protected necropolis for exploration. Adventurers from all of the Inner Sea region flock to Wati to explore Osirion's ancient tombs, but a mysterious sect called the Cult of the Forgotten Pharaoh has their own goal – to find the mask of the Forgotten Pharaoh hidden for thousands of years, to reunite the soul of an ancient pharaoh and bring him back to life to reclaim his long-lost throne. Only by defeating the risen Sky Pharaoh Hakotep and sending his reunited soul into the Great Beyond can Pathfinders save Osirion from the rule of a mummy from the ancient past.

The Pathfinder Adventure Path is Paizo's monthly 96-page, softcover book containing an in-depth scenario, stats for new monsters, and several support articles meant to give Game Masters additional material to expand their campaign. Adventure Paths release in six-volume arcs, for two complete Adventure Paths per year.

The Pathfinder Roleplaying Game builds on more than 10 years of system development and the largest open playtest in the history of tabletop gaming to create an unparalleled fantasy roleplaying experience. Players need only the Pathfinder RPG Core Rulebook to play, but Paizo produces a wide range of books and accessories to enhance your Pathfinder experience, from hardcover rules compendiums to complete campaigns to packets of beautiful, full-color maps.
