If they fail, their friends and countrymen might well be doomed to a new age of slavery and horror, but if they succeed, their triumphs shall be recorded by sages and kings, their immortality assured.
They will become the latest entry into the Pathfinder Chronicles. For much of written history, world events followed charted routes. Oracles and seers mapped out the future in the stars above, and their prophecies always gave a reliable view of the ages to come.
Until a god died a century ago. No one saw that coming, and now, the old prophecies are failing.
Oracles go mad and seers desperately try to account for the loss of the future. The future of Golarion is open, ready to receive the triumphs and failures of a new generation of heroes.
Because, as we all know, PCs have a knack for doing the unexpected. Each of these Adventure Paths will run for six months, with each volume of Pathfinder including a new chapter in the campaign, along with additional advice and material to expand each adventure and develop the new world of Golarion.
You can also expect a steady offering of at least six new monsters per volume in the Pathfinder Bestiary. But the bulk of each volume focuses on one expansive chapter of the current Adventure Path.
In this adventure, the PCs are faced with challenges ranging from goblin chieftains and ancient fiends to the awkward social situations that arise when suddenly cast into the roles of heroes in a small town. This is the best way to let us know what you think of Pathfinder and the Adventure Paths, to share notes with other GMs and players, and to check out reader-submitted suggestions for how best to convert the Rise of the Runelords and all of the Adventure Paths to come in Pathfinder to any number of campaign settings.
Also, check out our blog at paizo. Think of this as the Ten Commandments of Goblining, if you will. Although, of course, no goblin would ever think about writing these down! Given enough supplies, a goblin generally takes nearly a dozen meals a day.
They Like Fire: They Get Stuck Easily: Goblins have wiry frames but wide heads.
They live in cramped warrens. Sometimes too cramped. The walls of goblin lairs and the ruins of towns goblins have raided are littered with pictures of their exploits. They never use writing, though. Writing steals words out of your head. Ten Fun Facts About Goblins 1: Horse Hate: In fact, their hatred of all things horse is matched only by their fear of horses, who tend to step on goblins who get too close.
Dog Hate: Although goblins raise horrible rat-faced creatures called creatively enough goblin dogs to use as mounts and ride wolves or worgs if they can get them—goblins are quick to explain that wolves are NOT dogs , their hatred of plain old dogs nearly matches their hatred of horses. The feeling is mutual. Goblins Raid Junkyards: Goblins are weirdly adept at crafting weapons and armor from refuse, and are fond of killing people with what they throw away.
Goblins Love to Sing: Unfortunately, as catchy as their lyrics can be, goblin songs tend to be a bit too creepy and disturbing to catch on in polite society.
An excited or angry goblin is a noisy, chattering, toothy menace, but even then, he can drop into an unsettling silence in a heartbeat. The fact that goblins think of things like ovens as good hiding places reveals much about their inability to think plans through to the most likely outcome.
That, and they tend to be easily distracted, particularly by shiny things and animals smaller than them that might make good eating.
When Thassilon fell, these catacombs went dormant, but the one buried under Sandpoint was not fated to stay that way. Only these souls were useful to Karzoug in completing his return to life, and so he sent Mokmurian, now his puppet, back into the world to make ready the harvest.
The runewell sent a shockwave of magical energy up through the town above, manifesting in the form of violent nightmares from which many folk woke in a terrible rage that vanished in the span of a heartbeat.
In a few unfortunate cases, however, the wrath found fertile soil.
In particular, I would like to take the almost pristine map that CC3 generates and dirty it up a bit. Make it look more authentic. Map Specifics: The map was made in CC3, out of the standard mapping symbols and effects that come with the program. The map then had minor color adjustments and the text applied in GIMP.
The original map is just shy of x pixels. All-in-all it took my just over 3 hours to make it. Vincent Dutrait Interior Artist. Five years after a tragic fire and spate of brutal murders, the people of Sandpoint eagerly anticipate the Swallowtail Festival to commemorate the consecration of the town's new temple. At the height of the ceremony, disaster strikes! In the days that follow, a sinister shadow settles over Sandpoint.
Rumors of goblin armies and wrathful monsters in forgotten ruins have set the populace on edge. As Sandpoint's newest heroes, the PCs must deal with treachery, goblins, and the rising threat of a forgotten empire whose cruel and despotic rulers might not be as dead as history records.

Showing Rating details. Sort order. Basic Plot: Goblins are attacking Sandpoint and heroes have to save the day, even when they discover the threat goes way farther than just goblins. I've run other systems: Werewolf, Vampire, Call of Cthulhu, Paranoia, etc.
They are very fly-by-the-seat-of-the-GM's-pants kinds of systems where you make calls as issues come up and there is no real need to spend hours looking up obscure rules on how to do a particular action. Pathfinder is such a rich world, though, that I forgot all about that. After reading this book, with its comprehensive backstory yay roleplaying!!! The rules were largely laid out for me, and I had only to really familiarize myself with the book before running.
I'm running this adventure path for three different groups right now, and I'm really looking forward to moving through the whole series. Even running through the series with three different groups, it's different every time with all of the role-play opportunities. Nov 09, Joe Deangelo rated it liked it. I would give the story 2.
