What is Pathways: Chronicles of Tuvana about?
“An archaeological dig backed by all four countries of Tuvana is meant to shed light on the past while uniting the countries under a similar goal, despite their differences,” Dark Horse’s official synopsis for Pathways: Chronicles of Tuvana Volume 1 reads. “However, the project takes a sudden dark turn after an unexpected discovery. Communications are lost, family members are missing, there are strange changes in the land and unexpected climate irregularities — all threatening to unravel the tenuous ties that have kept Tuvana at peace for so long.”
The synopsis continues, “A clever princess, a set of royal twins with two very different personalities, a patient guard looking after an inquisitive scholar, a powerful and mysterious loving couple, and a fun-having street brawler are all pulled slowly from their very different paths through life as they each stumble across parts of a puzzle that, once assembled, could change — or destroy — the future of their world forever.”
“Pathways is a high fantasy adventure, with a dash of sci-fi and a bunch of dragons, for fans of Ghibli and Critical Role!” Tipping said.
Pathways: Chronicles of Tuvana Volume 1 goes on sale in September 2024 from Dark Horse Books.
