Prepare to Set Sail

Thursday, April 5, 2012

We're just a few weeks away from shipping out the first chapter of the Skull & Shackles Adventure Path to subscribers. To get your peg legs itching, here are two pieces of art from Pathfinder Adventure Path #55: The Wormwood Mutiny. Both depict life aboard a pirate ship, albeit on different sides of the coin. Whether you find infamy and plunder upon the high seas or end up swabbing the decks, anchors are lifting soon and the life of a pirate awaits! Be sure to check back next week for the release of the free Skull & Shackles Player's Guide.

Pretty pictures... but why did they let her keep the obviously solid gold hat?


1) Preview1.jpg = Lol

2) Preview2.jpg = [sarcasm] She wears too much clothes! [/sarcasm]

Exactly. I looked at that illustration and thought "Why would the pirates let her keep a hat that's more metal than cloth?" and "Why would she continue to wear it while doing the labor, it's got to be heavy."

Also known as "It doesn't make sense for the iconics to be dressed as they are in this picture."

Don't you recognize Mr. Miyagi's unique training technique when you see it?

The Iconic Magus just took a level in Monk!

just shows that it never helps to forget to prepair prestidigitation, you never know when you'll really need it


Well, Alahazra would certainly need Prestidigitation in order to keep her oh-so-white robes clean. Maybe Seltyiel is helping her out on that point? Also, I've never seen her show so little flesh. She probably doesn't want to attract too much of the wrong kind of attention. And another +1 on wondering why she's allowed to keep her hat (and he his armour).

I love the profusion of parrots in the second picture! :)

Little known pirate-fact: Since they themselves quite often are long-haired types who spend a lot of time in windy conditions, pirates are uncommonly sympathetic to prisoners having a bad hair day.

But don't you see? These problems solve each other! Obviously, the hat is fake. The Pirates, being good brigands with decent Appraise scores can tell it's polished brass, and not much of that, being basically hollow.

I'm actually not even kidding. Looking at her original illustration in the APG, that really doesn't look like gold. Gold colored, sure, but not real gold. It's a bit more gold-looking here, but that doesn't mean it's actually made of the stuff.

Nice pics but it is funny that the iconics still have there well made adventuring clothes on instead of rags. But then again if they didn't would we still recognize who they are.

Paizo Employee Creative Director

Yeah... if the iconcis weren't dressed in their normal clothes... said illustration wouldn't be NEARLY as amusing... and also...

Spoiler:
They're adventurers. Like your PCs, getting their gear back is one of the first orders of business!

Perhaps her oracle curse is obsessive-compulsive disorder, and Seltyiel is enjoying a bit of submissive role-play before his burly pirate gives him a jolly good thrashing or

spoiled for good taste:
jolly rogering.


Is it next week yet?

Wait for them to get into the office at least. I suggest ambush next to the front door.

I would have enjoyed it more if they were holy-stoning the deck boards. Now that's manual labour.
