Chapter 1: "Burnt Offerings"
by James Jacobs

The Rise of the Runelords Adventure Path begins in the small coastal town of Sandpoint. In a time when rumors of rampaging dragons and massing armies of giants have everyone on edge, the people of Sandpoint eagerly anticipate the coming festival to commemorate the consecration of a new temple. Yet, at the height of the ceremony, disaster strikes. A band of goblins assaults Sandpoint, and it falls to the heroes to defend the new temple.

In the days that follow, a mysterious malady that leaves its victims monstrously deformed and dangerously insane spreads through the town. The PCs must not only determine what’s causing this strange contagion, but also discover the sinister connection between the plague, the goblin attacks, and the emergence of a strange rune from an empire thought to be long dead.

This volume of Pathfinder also includes extensive details on the town of Sandpoint, several new monsters, and information on the mysterious ancient empire of Thassilon, whose cruel and despotic rulers may not be as dead as history would have us believe.

For characters of 1st to 3rd level.

Pathfinder is Paizo Publishing's 96-page, perfect-bound, full-color softcover Adventure Path book printed on high-quality paper that releases in a monthly volume. Each volume is brought to you by the same staff which brought you Dragon and Dungeon magazines for over five years. It contains an in-depth Adventure Path scenario, stats for about a half-dozen new monsters, and several support articles meant to give Game Masters additional material to expand their campaign. Because Pathfinder uses the Open Game License, it is 100% compatible with the world's most popular fantasy roleplaying game.

The price jumps steeply if the copies of Burn Offerings are described as 'new' or 'mint, includes pull-out map'.

I understand people willing to pay more for a "new" copy, but what's "mint, includes pull-out map"? There was no pull-out map in Burnt Offerings.

I'm looking at about £200 to get #1,3,5 second-hand in good condition and shipped to the UK. I think I'm just going to print from my PDF copies and buy a thermal binding machine.

Which is sad and makes me wonder how hard people are really looking for copies of Burnt Offerings. I had a new ("new" being really absolutely perfect) copy on sale two weeks ago on eBay France for 29 euros (+ 6-8 euros for worldwide shipping), and I got exactly zero bids, and zero people following the sale.

It was just a matter of checking the "Worldwide" checkbox on eBay UK or eBay US to see it appear there.

I'm wondering now if it's worth the hassle of listing it directly on eBay UK (which would allow me to cross list it on eBay US) or if people in truth are not interested enough.

Thanks for that - then there is a listing on abebooks.co.uk where someone is trying to inflate the price by claiming that there is.

Mail me, if you still want to sell that. Address is on profile. I've had a saved search on Ebay for a while which occasionally lists auctions in the USA but didn't notify me of yours. I'll investigate.

The only thing that could qualify as "pull-out maps" would be the Pathfinder Chronicles: Rise of the Runelords Map Folio, but that's a separate product.

Mail has been sent.

Edit: Or not… Since I got an "Undelivered Mail Returned to Sender" notice, I guess that your "My email comes from google dot com." really means I should send it to gmail.com and not google.com?

Received, thanks.

Add my vote to someone who came late and would by a compilation of RotRL. I would really love it if it was updated with the new rules. I think it would look amazing in a sexy hardcover too.

Just to point out. You can still find them in stores. Rare but they are around. I know the local game store chain still has one of each of the RotRL except I think number 2. In some cases like 4 on up they have 2 or 3 copies still left. Granted they are mostly spread out over there 4 stores.

At this point I've been one over with the PDFs. I would still love to have them in print form but that's just the compulsive collector in me.


Would love to see a tie in with the goblins and Kagmar from loot 4 less the goblin trader if they revamped this..I loved using the compatible stuff at times with the core stuff..and had this character start out in the original goblin raid and then shoiw up latter in adventures..the lumber mill making carts for less and magic shop later..in Magnimar..then the seedy..unground blackmarket..other this series is incredibly written thanks to you guys at paizo..great stuff. I agree with the earlier posting i also like pdf's but nothing like a good book in hand.


I'd like to include myself in the hordes of people wishing for this to be reprinted. Especially since I don't have cheap access to a printer :/

AP one is 4pm Indy time tomorrow, the Future of Paizo is 10am Saturday I think, but that one I'm uncertain on.

In the meantime, you can check out the Rise of the Runelords forum, where there are plenty of community-generated conversions and lots of other useful stuff.


Is the Sandpoint material in this book identical to the Anniversary edition, or is one more complete?

The information is a little more complete in the Anniversary Edition, yes. If only because there are a few additional encounters in Sandpoint in the adventures itself, but also because there's more illustrations of Sandpoint locals. And the words themselves are slightly increased in total count.
