Where to Next?

Thursday, May 17, 2012

City of the Fallen Sky, the latest Pathfinder Tales novel, is in our warehouse and on its way to stores and subscribers, offering readers a chance to explore two of the Inner Sea's most fascinating and asked-about settings: the barbarians-and-technology land of Numeria, and the legendary crashed flying city of Kho. Looking back on the other seven books in the line so far, we've been to a lot of great places: Ustalav, the Worldwound, Irrisen—even the Outer Planes. And there's still more coming—I can't wait for people to see Liane Merciel's take on grim Nidal, Robin Laws' depiction of the underhanded politics in Magnimar, or Dave Gross's elven extravaganza in Kyonin. Yet all of it leaves me with a question: with so many choices, where should we take the line next?

That's where you come in. I want to know what parts of Golarion you would like to see a Pathfinder Tales novel or web fiction story about. Are you dying for a book set in Bekzen, or maybe just across the border in Lastwall? Perhaps you want to see more of the River Kingdoms, Jalmeray, or Osirion? Post your suggestions in the comments thread and let me know! Repeats are fine, and while we'd prefer to stay near the Inner Sea, there are no wrong answers—your opinion is your opinion. Remember, we rely on the feedback of readers like you to guide all our projects—and who knows? You might just get that Mammoth Lords novel you've been waiting for...

I'd love to see a follow-up to The Worldwound Gambit. Not a story set in the Worldwound, but a sequel with those characters (or, at least, most of the central characters) written by Robin D. Laws.

There has been very little written about the nations of Nex and Geb. I'd love to see a book set in one of these two(or both)nations!

Lantern Lodge

Alkenstar, all the way. Whether it be a continuing of the web story or a completely new story.

I would like to see a Andoran Naval story along the lines of Horatio Hornblower.


It would be interesting to see a story coming out of the Mana Wastes.

Absalom please. In the Arcanamirium. The novel should have an appendix filled with 20 new spells for universalist wizards. And come out next week.

Only kidding.

End of the month is fine.

I'll second Hermea. And the Tales line might be a good way to flesh out some of the history of the world; maybe instead of setting the book in modern times, we get to actually read the stories of things like the war between Geb and Nex, or Baba Yaga, or ancient Osirion, or the Whispering Tyrant's reign in Ustalav.

Maybe a novel with more First World elements, dealing with the Fey?

Also, Galt. The online stories featuring Norret have been my favorite so far.

I would love to see a story set in Quain. I love Tian Xia, and I think the Land of a Thousand Heroes is both fun and unexplored.

I've been wanting to find out more about Hermea. There's very little information about the place so I'd love to read a story set there.

In the Inner Sea I would love more Andoran, Numeria, and the River Kingdoms (Brevoy as well).

I would also REALLY like to see something in Arcadia. I'm Native American in addition to (mostly) Irish and English. The Anglo/Celtic side of my ancestry is done to death in every fantasy setting ever, I think Arcadia is a perfect place to tap into some of the really excellent Native American mythology, and the several colonies already in existence there make an excellent tie in to the more familiar Inner Sea setting.

EDIT: I just finished my epub of City of the Fallen sky last night. Hope to get a longer review in, but it is currently tied with Plague of Shadows for my favorite.

I should also add that I will devour anything Dave Gross writes for Pathfinder. Seriously, publish Varian Jegarre's collected grocery lists, with a little commentary from Radovan, and I'll read it.

You're in luck! Master of Devils is all about Quain/Tian Xia, and it's already out! :D

The top 2 novels I most want to see are:

A Kaer Maga novel (with Salim?) written by James Sutter.

A Nex or Absalom novel written by Erik Mona.

Other than those, maybe something set in Riddleport, Minkai, or the Shackles.

Regardless, I'm happy to follow where the novels take me. I certainly have my favorites among the line, but I'm happy to say that I haven't been disappointed by any of them yet (read them all, and just started Fallen Sky).

I know the Iconics are coming to the new comic, but I would love to see like a definitive story of how they formed as a party and some early adventures with them...

Andoran

I would like to see you go to a magical land called Kindle in the great Amazon forest. I've heard tales that the wizards there are able to use a single scroll to store all their spells, freeing space in their towers for ant farms and the like.

We like the way you think, Joseph. Stick around... :)

Taldor. I'd like to see something with a disgraced Lion Blade and the political maneuverings of the broken lion...

Me too! The only thing holding us back from Kindle at this point is an overly restrictive contract. We're all hoping that they'll loosen up as time goes on, but for now it's a waiting game...

Ok, here is my only beef with the novels, of which I have read most. This is a problem shared by other game-related licenses in general, and that is they never capture the "feel" of a party of characters adventuring together. It's usually one or two characters doing all the adventuring. To me the books should at least convey the gist of the overall brand.

Don't get me wrong, I like the books but I would like to see a book that captures the spirit of the game itself.

Sczarni RPG Superstar 2014 Top 16

I love the idea of a Hornblower-esque Andoran Naval novel. Or anything else set on the high seas of Golarion. Perhaps a Skull & Shackles tie-in about pirates?

I also agree that a book with more of an ensemble cast, a la an adventuring party, would make sense.

I would love to see a novel set in Alkenstar and the surrounding Mana Wastes.

Also, I think it would be really interesting to have a story set on Castrovel or Akiton, giving us some of that good Sword & Planet fun.

The Vaults of Orv.

A little closer to home: Something with an Andoran hero -- and I'd rather it not use the ol' "super-good-seeming hero turns out to actually be a villain" trope.

So yeah, I obviously just saw The Avengers, and it's got me thinking "Captain Andoran".

This is one of the main reasons that Plague of Shadows is one of my favorites in the line (second only to Death's Heretic). I thought Jones did a fantastic job of capturing that sort of party dynamic with not only 1, but 2 groups within the same novel.

Looking forward to more from him as well (didn't mention it in my previous post because we already have confirmation that he's working on the next book).

Queen of Thorns should definitely solve that problem for you, and Blood of the City as well. Both of those are very much "party-based" stories.

Death's Heretic takes place in Thuvia, and it's already available.

What James didn't mention about Death's Heretic is that it is an awesome book.

Andoran

Land of the Linnorm Kings
Hermea
Katapesh

Those are my votes, anyway.
