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.
The Pathfinder Adventure Card Game is an expandable game, with the first set containing nearly 500 cards. The Rise of the Runelords - Base Set supports 1 to 4 players; a 110-card Character Add-On Deck expands the possible number of players to 5 or 6 and adds more character options for any number of players. The game will be expanded with bimonthly 110-card adventure decks.

Sometimes when playing this game on a smaller table, things get really cramped. I've looked through all the Character Mats available here. They are very nice... but all too big for me. I needed something more compact, so I knocked these out overnight. They're pretty basic, but they're functional. If printed at 100%, they are 166mm x 160mm in size. Fits both A4 and US Letter sizes.
These are only the character's early levels, before they get specialised (ie. up to Hook Mountain). I'll post the specialist sections once I get there (I've just completed the 1st Adventure only) and if there's any demand.
This is a list of the rewards given for completing each scenario in the campaign. I have looked for a list like this for a while, but have never found one.
It's handy to double-check during the campaign to make sure you have checked off the right number of boxes, and is also handy if you want to look ahead to see when you'll get your next X feat, or how many more Y feats you'll get before the end.
In this file you will find what you need to create several packs where you can store all the cards of a game in progress, so that you can later on play from where you stopped:
- Scenario and Locations Packs
- Character Packs;
- Blessings Packs;
- Dividers to sort the cards inside of each of the packs;
Nota: Place your character token in the locations pack together with the location where he was when the game stopped.
PACG's Blessings Deck is bit sterile if you don't know anything about the names mentioned on the cards.

Played him many times and he feels balanced and on par with the other heroes. Power mechanics are very thematic with necromancy, alowing you to drain HP from dead bodies, or reanimate them to fight for you!
