Monte Cook to Write Pathfinder RPG Adventure
"Curse of the Riven Sky" First Pathfinder RPG Design for Third Edition Co-Creator
Paizo Publishing today announced that leading fantasy RPG designer Monte Cook will write Curse of the Riven Sky, a new adventure for the popular Pathfinder Roleplaying Game. The 32-page stand-alone adventure releases in July, 2010, and represents Cook’s first significant creative design work for the Pathfinder RPG. Cook previously served as one of the primary designers of the third edition of the world’s oldest roleplaying game, and his adventure designs have won him several industry awards, including the Gen Con/EN World "ENnie" for Best Adventure.
"I love working with the folks at Paizo," said Monte Cook. "We seem to see eye to eye on what’s right for the game, and what makes a great product. It’s a thrill for me to be able to create an adventure for the cool new Pathfinder Roleplaying Game."
Curse of the Riven Sky features a series of challenging wilderness and roleplaying encounters as the player characters face off against the machinations of treacherous giants and includes a foray into the floating fortress of a cloud giant wizard. Cook previously served as a design consultant for the Pathfinder Roleplaying Game Core Rulebook, which is now entering its third printing after a smash-hit August 2009 release.
"I was lucky enough to play in Monte’s legendary Ptolus campaign," said Paizo Publisher Erik Mona. "Monte’s fundamental understanding of encounter design, strong sense of exciting fantasy, and immersive storytelling made his campaign an absolute joy, and I’m beyond thrilled to finally bring his exciting voice to the Pathfinder RPG experience."
