REDMOND, WA (June 20, 2013): Paizo Publishing, LLC announces today the release of The Wizard's Mask, the Pathfinder Tales debut novel from New York Times bestselling author Ed Greenwood. The Wizard's Mask is out now and available as a mass-market paperback, MSRP $9.99.

In the war-torn lands of Molthune and Nirmathas, where rebels fight an endless war of secession against and oppressive military government, the constant fighting can make for strange alliances. Such is the case for the man known only as The Masked, the victim of a magical curse that forces him to hide his face, and an escaped Halfling slave named Tantaerra. Thrown together by chance, the two fugitives find themselves conscripted by both sides of the conflict and forced to search for a magical artifact that could help shift the balance of power and end the bloodshed for good. But in order to survive, the thieves will first need to learn the one thing none of their adventures have taught them: how to trust each other.

Pathfinder Tales are the official novels, novellas, and web fiction stories that explore the fascinating world of the Pathfinder Roleplaying Game, written by some of fantasy's best-selling authors, all set in the lovingly detailed world of Golarion. Here are the same nations, characters, and monsters that have inspired gamers around the world to new heights of imagination. Now journey across Golarion as you never have before, through the eyes of canny warriors and flippant scoundrels, and see firsthand why the Pathfinder world has thrice earned the prestigious ENnie Award for Best Campaign Setting.
