PAIZO PUBLISHING AND OFFWORLD DESIGNS PARTNER TO CREATE OFFICIAL APPAREL FOR THE PATHFINDER RPG
World's Best-Selling Fantasy Roleplaying Game Gets +1 Style Bonus
REDMOND, WA (May 17, 2013): Paizo Publishing, LLC, publisher of the world's best-selling Pathfinder Roleplaying Game (RPG), and OffWorld Designs, Inc., the Best Shirts in Fandom, announce today the licensing of the Pathfinder RPG brand for t-shirts, backpacks, and messenger bags.
The debut piece features the iconic cover artwork of the Pathfinder RPG Core Rulebook, by artist Wayne Reynolds. The design will be printed on 100% cotton, black, Fruit of the Loom™ t-shirts, and is available for pre-order now on paizo.comand offworlddesigns.com with MSRPs ranging from $20 – 26.
"We are thrilled to have the license for Pathfinder RPG apparel," says Barbara VanTilburg, CEO of OffWorld Designs. "Our shirts are well-known in the gaming industry and Paizo, as well as Pathfinder, are both fan favorites, so this is all a natural fit!"
Today's agreement marks the first official apparel license for the Pathfinder RPG. Paizo has already partnered with Dynamite Entertainment to bring the world of Pathfinder to comic books and graphic novels. Diamond Select Toys has released several plush toys based on the popular Pathfinder goblins, and both Reaper Miniatures and WizKids produce full ranges of dynamic gaming figures.
The Pathfinder Roleplaying Game builds on more than 10 years of system development and the largest open playtest in the history of tabletop gaming to create an unparalleled fantasy roleplaying experience. Players need only the Pathfinder RPG Core Rulebook to play, but Paizo Publishing produces a wide range of books and accessories to enhance your Pathfinder experience, from hardcover rules compendiums to complete campaigns to packets of beautiful full-color maps.
