Fans of Paizo Publishing's fantasy tabletop RPG, Pathfinder, have had plenty to enjoy recently. The game has seen steady support with multiple sourcebooks and supplements. Now, Paizo is promising even more with their very first premium box edition Absalom, City of Omens Gold Edition.

According to Paizo's official press release, Absalom, City of Omens Gold Edition contains everything a Gamemaster would need to help players feel completely immersed in an adventure set in Absalom. In addition to multiple maps displaying the various districts and locations of the city - complete with ample space for GM and player notes - the box will include physical in-world handouts to help players feel more connected. On top of that, the Gold Edition will include NPC Character cards and location cards to help GMs and players keep track of ongoing events, a comprehensive GM screen full of key information about Absalom, three bonus adventures exclusive to the Gold Edition, and a redeemable code on Demiplane to have access to these materials on Pathfinder Nexus.

Finally, it wouldn't be a premium adventure without loot. The city of Absalom has its share of rivaling factions and organizations, each with their own identifiable piece of jewelry. Absalom, City of Omens Gold Edition will include three physical pieces of this jewelry, as well as a set of coins (all produced courtesy of Campaign Coins) commonly used in trade throughout the city, and four drink coasters to help keep all of these items dry and stainless.
