PAIZO LAUNCHES WORLDWIDE ORGANIZED PLAY PROGRAM FOR THE PATHFINDER ADVENTURE CARD GAME
Pathfinder Society Adventure Card Guild Kicks Off August 2014
Paizo Inc., publisher of the world's best-selling Pathfinder Roleplaying Game, is pleased to announce today the launch of the Pathfinder Society Adventure Card Guild (PFSACG), a worldwide program that brings sanctioned, organized play of the wildly popular Pathfinder Adventure Card Game to retail stores, conventions, and home play. PFSACG will make its debut at Gen Con Indy, August 2014.
PFSACG kicks off with Season Zero, Season of the Shackles, in which a new gameplay scenario and story will be provided each week to local game stores, and subsequently made available to organizers of convention and home play. To participate in the program, organizers need only provide the core game, the Pathfinder Adventure Card Game: Skull & Shackles Base Set. Players will only need to outfit themselves with the PACG: Class Deck (MSRP $19.99) of their choosing to play.
As characters play through Season of the Shackles, they’ll fight pirates and denizens of the isles, gain tasty plunder and new spells, and learn secrets buried deep in the Inner Sea’s watery reaches. Each scenario brings with it new prizes, and players of the Pathfinder Society Roleplaying Guild can gain rewards that cross over into RPG play.
PFSACG Season of the Shackles debuts at Gen Con and at participating retailers on August 14 and releases new chapters the same day as each new Skull & Shackles Adventure Deck. The season features a new scenario each week until the release of the next Pathfinder Adventure Card Game Base Set in Q1 2015.
Retailers wishing to participate in the new organized play program, and to receive the free scenarios and other promotional materials, will need to register on Paizo's Retailer Locator at paizo.com/retailers.
