Today it was announced Paizo Publishing will team up with Big Finish – if you’re a fan of Doctor Who I’m sure you’ve heard of them – to produce full cast audio adventures set in the Pathfinder universe. The first tale is slated for a January 2014 release and will be available as a CD for $15.99 or downloadable format for $12.99. As someone who’s a huge lover of old time radio (and not so old audio productions) I’m interested in hearing how these come out!
Paizo Publishing, LLC, publisher of the world’s best selling Pathfinder Roleplaying Game, announces today a new partnership with Big Finish, developer of full-cast dramas and audiobooks, to create Pathfinder Legends, audiobook adventures set in the world of Pathfinder.
Big Finish will produce full-cast and dual spoken word audiobooks in collectible CD and digital download format. The first 6-episode Pathfinder Legends series will be a new full-cast audiobook drama based on the highly popular Rise of the Runelords storyline, with Chapter One, Burnt Offerings, expected to release January 2014, with subsequent releases every two months thereafter. Single-CD releases will be priced at $15.99/£10.00, with digital downloads at $12.99/£8.00. BigFinish.com and paizo.com will offer subscriptions at a discounted rate.
“We’re thrilled to be working with Big Finish,” says Paizo Publisher Erik Mona. “Their work with properties like Doctor Who has shown the care, attention-to-detail, and quality we know Pathfinder fans have come to expect, and we’re excited to hear the adventures of Valeros, Seoni, and our other iconic characters as they venture through Pathfinder’s most famous campaign, the Rise of the Runelords!”
“The moment we saw the spectacular Paizo booth at the Gen Con event last year, company Chairman Jason Haigh-Ellery and I knew that the exciting worlds of Paizo’s best-selling, award-winning Pathfinder would be ideal inspiration for exciting audio productions,” says Big Finish executive producer Nicholas Briggs. “We’re really excited and proud to be working with such great stories and characters.”
