Pathfinder Volume Four: Origins was released on November 25, 2015[1]. The graphic novel tells the tales of the early days of the Pathfinder iconic heroes. The series is written by Pathfinder creators Erik Mona (Paizo Inc. Publisher and Chief Creative Officer), F. Wesley Schneider (Paizo Editor-in-Chief), and James L. Sutter (Paizo Managing Editor).[2] This book compiles the six-part "Pathfinder Origins" story arc—including game content by the comic's authors—as well as a never-before-released poster map.

To prove themselves to the Pathfinder Society, Valeros the fighter and his companions must recount tales of their early exploits in a world beset by magic and evil. Thrill to the solo adventures of Valeros, holy warrior Kyra, Seoni the sorcerer, elven rogue Merisiel, Harsk the dwarven ranger, and Ezren the wizard as they journey treacherous lands, survive wild creatures and fairy magic, unearth ancient threats, and prove their heroism time and time again!

With six captivating stories (each connected by a common narrative thread) and explosive artwork, this fourth volume in the Pathfinder graphic novel series expands upon the mythos of Paizo's award-winning fantasy world, fiction line, and tabletop RPG. The collection features Pathfinder: Origins issues #1-6 by Erik Mona (Publisher of Paizo Inc.), game designers James L. Sutter and F. Wesley Schneider, and artists Tom Garcia, Kevin Stokes, and Leandro Oliviera; a cover gallery of 30 beautiful images; twenty-four pages of characters and world detail for the Pathfinder RPG, and a removable poster-map of the region explored in the graphic novel.
