PAIZO LIVESTREAMS ALL-DAY PATHFINDER RPG CHARITY MARATHON FEBRUARY 24
Activities Include All-Star Pathfinder Game from Paizo Headquarters Live on Twitch, Live Pathfinder Games on Saving Throw Show and Dicestormers, and Humble Bundle Partnership to Benefit Extra Life
REDMOND, WA (February 24, 2016): Paizo Inc., publisher of the award-winning Pathfinder Roleplaying Game, announces today an all-day Pathfinder RPG Charity Marathon, scheduled to take place worldwide on February 24, 2016.
Join Paizo Publisher Erik Mona, Pathfinder Lead Designer Jason Bulmahn, and the Pathfinder development team as they host all-day tag-team Pathfinder RPG games, streamed live from Paizo headquarters as the first broadcast on Paizo’s new Twitch channel. The marathon games will run from 10:00am – 8:00pm U.S. Pacific Time.
At 11:00am Pacific Time, the wildly popular Humble Bundle store will launch their first Humble RPG Books Bundle, featuring more than $350 worth of digital Pathfinder RPG rulebooks, campaigns, and more, at a pay-what-you-want price. Customers can also choose how their purchase dollars are allocated between the publisher and Extra Life, a program of the Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals. The Humble RPG Books Bundle: Pathfinder ends on Wednesday, March 9, 2016 at 11:00am Pacific Time.
“We’re thrilled to bring cameras into the Paizo conference room to give gamers a peek at the Pathfinder Roleplaying Game as played by the designers and developers of the game itself,” says Paizo Publisher Erik Mona. “Teaming up with Humble Bundle to raise funds for Extra Life, while giving Pathfinder players and fantasy-lovers a great way to build their Pathfinder RPG libraries, gives gamers an opportunity to do good in the real world as well as in lands populated by dragons and elves.”
Once the live stream from Paizo Headquarters ends, programming will pick up with the Saving Throw Show for their own live Pathfinder game, streamed live starting at 8:00pm PT and ending at Midnight PT. Immediately following, Australia’s Dicestormers will continue the live Pathfinder action, streaming their game starting at Midnight Pacific Time, enriched with the official sounds of Pathfinder through the Syrinscape app, rounding-out nearly 24 hours of live Pathfinder RPG adventure.
