The Stars Are Wrong!
Friday, June 17, 2011
Wake of the Watcher, the fourth installment of the Carrion Crown Adventure Path, is on its way out of the warehouse and to retailers and subscribers the world over. In this chapter, the PCs venture to Illmarsh, an ugly town amid the nastiest stretch of swamp in Ustalav. On the trail of the Whispering Way, the PCs find themselves caught up between beings from beneath the seas and invaders from the darkest corners of the cosmos. Can the heroes save Illmarsh from its tradition of terror? Or will they be the next victims of the horror from beyond the stars? While you wait to find out, enjoy this wallpaper featuring a corpulent cthuloid and poor Merisiel caught up in the tentacles of some nightmarish spawn of a Great Old One.
haha! Going to have to check this out, though... I'm thinking that when my turn comes around to DM (my group does a round-robin thing), I may have to mine this for ideas. Hallyr Narcissar (my zen archer monk) and his companions have some horrors awaiting them! Really looking forward to the HPL-based goodies!
