Summer GAX Events – Pathfinder Adventure Card Game

Ohhhhh Yah! You know what time it is. Summer GAX is right around the corner and its going to be awesome!
In the mist of all this PC gaming I would like to offer you the opportunity to try your hand at a campaign of the Pathfinder Adventure Card Game: Rise of the Runelords. I’ll opt out of trying to use my own words to explain the game further and let Board Game Geek fill in where my words are lacking.

“A forgotten evil stirs in the ancient land of Varisia. Dark magic once more thrums amid crumbling ruins, giants gather in titanic armies, cultists murder in the name of foul deities, and maniacal goblins plot a fiery end for the peaceful town of Sandpoint.
Launch a campaign to strike back against the evils plaguing Varisia with the Pathfinder Adventure Card Game: Rise of the Runelords – Base Set. This complete cooperative strategy card game pits 1 to 4 heroes against the traps, monsters, deadly magic, and despicable foes of the Pathfinder Roleplaying Game’s award-winning Rise of the Runelords Adventure Path. In this game players take the part of a fantasy character such as a rogue or wizard, each with varying skills and proficiencies that are represented by the cards in their deck. The classic ability scores (Strength, Dexterity, etc.) are assigned with different sized dice. Players can acquire allies, spells, weapons, and other items. The goal is to find and defeat a villain before a certain number of turns pass, with the villain being represented by its own deck of cards complete with challenges and foes that must be overcome. Characters grow stronger after each game, adding unique gear and awesome magic to their decks, and gaining incredible powers, all of which they’ll need to challenge greater threats in a complete Pathfinder Adventure Card Game Adventure Path.”

IPathfinder Card Game will be running a separate session of Pathfinder Adventure Card Game: Rise of the Runelords each day. While each adventure lasts roughly an hour, there are currently 15 adventures that build off of each other so the length of your game depends entirely on how long your group wants to play. The game is best played with a group of 4 people, but you can play it solo as well if you wanted.
Seeing as how there is a limited number of spots available, you might just want to email me (Kurt H) ahead of time so that you can save yourself and your group a spot at the table.

Game On, Brothers and Sisters!
