Paizo announced the complete author list today for the upcoming Pathfinder Chronicles Campaign Setting hardcover. This massive 256-page hardcover book offers an in-depth exploration of Golarion, the exciting world of the Pathfinder Modules and Pathfinder Adventure Paths, for the first time. It includes detailed sections on more than 40 nations and provides a full picture of the Pathfinder Chronicles campaign setting.
