New from Paizo: Breathe life into lost cultures with character options that trace their origins back to ancient times, or pay homage to a distant ancestry with one of the archetypes presented in Pathfinder Player Companion: Blood of the Ancients!

The vestige bloodline, which allows both bloodragers and sorcerers the power to not only glimpse into the past but also summon long-dead ancestors and forgotten cities and battlefields into the present day.

New archetypes, from the ancient Azlanti ioun kineticists and the Spawn slayers of Ninshabur to the golem-forged Jistkan artificers and the Heaven-mandated jinyiwei investigators of Lung Wa.
New spells recovered from ancient cultures, including mystic runes from Shory, life-preserving magic from the Mierani arcane wardens, and spells believed to have been used by the founder of Jistka himself.

Starfinder Pact Worlds is available for purchase at game retailers and paizo.com now.

Starfinder Pact Worlds includes:
• In-depth gazetteers of the system’s 14 major worlds, from high-tech Verces and the draconic empires of Triaxus to the necromantic wastelands of Eox or magical bubble cities floating on the surface of the sun. Each gazetteer features a detailed world map, residents and cultures, settlements and adventure locations, a unique theme to customize characters from that world, and more.
• New playable alien races, from the undead borais to plantlike khizars.
• New starships, from the living vessels of the Xenowardens to sinister Hellknight Citadels.
• A codex of themed NPC stat blocks to help Game Masters create vivid encounters.

“Starfinder Pact Worlds takes a deep dive into the worlds and cultures of the core Starfinder setting and details some of the most notable locations on these worlds,” said Robert G. McCreary, Paizo’s Starfinder Creative Director. “The book is full of exciting adventure hooks, and it has a ton of new rules content, too, like themes and archetypes associated with worlds and factions within the setting. There are also some beautiful new starships, like the Iomedaean Cathedralships and the living Gardenships of the Xenowardens. But I’m especially excited about the new playable races, including the bantrids, curious aliens who roll around on foot-orbs and are always in motion!”

With painstaking detail and coloring, these pre-painted miniatures bring the heroic crews and explorers from Starfinder to life. The range of pre-painted miniatures will include both adventurers and the ships they use to traverse space, both scaled appropriately to use as gameplay pieces for their unique roles in the Starfinder game system.

Ninja Division Creative Director John Cadice comments: “Ninja Division has been working hard with Paizo to create a line of pre-painted miniatures for gamers. We are all fans of miniatures here, and lovers of Paizo’s fantastic RPG worlds. Starfinder has not disappointed in the richness of the races and designs we get to help bring to life for players.”
Paizo Inc., publisher of the award-winning Pathfinder Roleplaying Game and Pathfinder Adventure Card Game, announces today the initial product line-up for the highly anticipated Starfinder Roleplaying Game, the new science fantasy RPG set in the world of Pathfinder, ready for blast-off at Gen Con Indy August 2017.

Starfinder Creative Director James L.
