New This April from Paizo includes new Pathfinder and Starfinder

This month, Paizo published new Adventure Path installments for Pathfinder and Starfinder, an expanded nation in the Pathfinder Campaign Setting, a classic Flip-Mat, two Pocket Edition rulebooks, and a magical Add-On Deck for the Pathfinder Adventure Card Game. They are available for purchase at game retailers and paizo.com now.

Pathfinder Adventure Path: The Twilight Child (War for the Crown 3 of 6)

The Worst in Others

Dark shadows haunt the trade city of Yanmass, spreading chaos even as the city’s leaders debate which royal heir to support in the growing civil war. Their soldiers are vanishing, bandits attack without fear, and a mysterious plague of nightmares rattles the populace—are these troubles random, or part of a larger conspiracy? And what role do the mysterious Twilight Child and the cultlike following he has attracted play in the chaos?

This volume of Pathfinder Adventure Path continues the War for the Crown Adventure Path and includes:

• “The Twilight Child,” a Pathfinder adventure for 7th-level characters, by Ron Lundeen.
• A gazetteer of the city of Yanmass, the caravan hub of northern Taldor catering to travelers from across two continents, by Ron Lundeen.
• An ecology of the mysterious and bureaucratic servants of death known as psychopomps, by F. Wesley Schneider.
• A thoughtful exploration of resurrection, the strange role it plays in the world of Golarion, and how the various gods react to this violation of the natural order, by Patchen Mortimer.
• A collection of strange beasts that roam the Whistling Plains, from the thieving grassling to the explosive bloodplate burster, by Ron Lundeen, Andrew Mullen, Richard Pett, and David Schwartz.

Starfinder Adventure Path: The Thirteenth Gate (Dead Suns 5 of 6)

A Place in the Suns

The heroes journey deeper into the Vast to find the Gate of Twelve Suns, an alien megastructure consisting of a dozen stars arranged in a perfect circle. However, members of the Cult of the Devourer precede them, and the heroes must contend with the cultists for control of the alien technology found on the single planet orbiting each sun. Only by defeating these foul marauders can the heroes keep the superweapon hidden here out of the wrong hands—though the destructive zealots are far from the only threats found in the system.

This volume of Starfinder Adventure Path continues the Dead Suns Adventure Path and includes:

• “The Thirteenth Gate,” a Starfinder adventure for 9th-level characters, by Stephen Radney-MacFarland.
• A collection of technological relics left scattered across the galaxy by the kishalee, members of an ancient advanced alien civilization, by Stephen Radney-MacFarland.
• Detailed descriptions of the worlds and cultures of five never-before-encountered alien species, by Mikko Kallio, Jason Keeley, Lyz Liddell, Ron Lundeen, and Mark Moreland.
• An archive of new creatures, from the main inhabitants of the five new alien worlds to an undead manifestation of entropy, by Mikko Kallio, Jason Keeley, Lyz Liddell, Ron Lundeen, Mark Moreland, and Stephen Radney-MacFarland.
• Statistics and deck plans for a heavily modified starship crewed by Devourer cultists, by Stephen Radney-MacFarland, plus a glimpse of a barren planet cloaked in shadow in the Codex of Worlds, by Owen K.C. Stephens.

Pathfinder Campaign Setting: Nidal, Land of Shadows

A Land Chained in Shadow

Ten thousand years ago, faced with extinction, the terrified leaders of Nidal heard whispers in their minds—promises of salvation for their nation if only they’d submit their people’s bodies and souls to perpetual servitude. Those leaders’ assent transformed them into conduits for Zon-Kuthon, the god of envy and pain, and has sealed Nidal’s fate to this day.

Pathfinder Campaign Setting: Nidal, Land of Shadows draws back the curtain from one of Golarion’s most wicked and mysterious theocracies. Within these pages, you’ll find:

• Detailed descriptions of Nidal’s history, including its tragic fall into Zon-Kuthon’s grasp.
• An in-depth gazetteer of the entire nation, from settlements to more sinister features.
• Malevolent adventure sites from the Castle of the Captive Sun to the Tower of Slant Shadows.
• A bestiary of shadowy creatures, including the suffragan kyton, that lurk in Nidal and beyond.

Pathfinder Campaign Setting: Nidal, Land of Shadows is intended for use with the Pathfinder campaign setting, but it can be easily adapted to any fantasy world.

Starfinder Pact Worlds

Pathfinder Adventure Path: Songbird, Scion, Saboteur (War for the Crown 2 of 6)

The county of Meratt is Taldor in a microcosm: a once-glorious land left to decay by negligent nobles. But to help secure Princess Eutropia’s bid for the throne, bold adventurers must now infiltrate her ancestral homeland and overthrow the corrupt Count Lotheed from within, gaining allies and solving problems left to fester far too long. Can they play idle noble by day and hero by night well enough to reverse the county’s fortunes, or will the weight of history’s sins be too crushing a burden?

This volume of Pathfinder Adventure Path continues the War for the Crown Adventure Path. War for the Crown is a major part of Paizo’s 2018 publishing program, with monthly Adventure Path volumes and support products released throughout the year.

As the political scene in the ancient kingdom of Taldor explodes into chaos, players take the roles of agents, advocates and saboteurs working for Princess Eutropia to help secure her claim to the throne and prevent the nation from collapsing into civil war. Along the way, the heroes must recover secrets of Taldor’s past — many deliberately hidden — and grow from relative nobodies to powerful politicians and spymasters in the deadliest political arena in the Inner Sea!

  • Complete monthly campaign running February 2018-July 2018
  • Golarion’s timeline thunders forward with a new destiny for Taldor in a thrilling campaign of espionage and intrigue that mixes James Bond with Game of Thrones! Your heroes decide the fate of the nation, and perhaps that of the whole Inner Sea Region!
  • Pathfinder Pawns, Poster Map Folios, and Pathfinder Battles miniatures tie-ins enrich the fantasy!

Pathfinder Player Companion: Merchant’s Manifest

Some say that money makes the world go round, and Golarion’s merchants make this a reality. Pathfinder Player Companion: Merchant’s Manifest examines commerce through the lens of important trade hubs such as Absalom, Goka, and Katapesh, where smart shoppers can secure myriad fine wares. Whether you’re aiming to purchase a rare item, hire on with a trade organization, or make your fortune on your own, this player-focused volume is your key to success.

This Pathfinder Player Companion is intended for use with the Pathfinder Roleplaying Game and the Pathfinder campaign setting, but it can be easily incorporated into any fantasy world.

Pathfinder Flip-Mat: Forest Fire features two different scenes of fiery destruction to challenge even the most stout-hearted or foolhardy adventurer!
