Chapter 11: "Skeletons of Scarwall"
by Greg A. Vaughan

The heroes have learned the identity of the evil that plagues Korvosa—the vile remnants of an evil dragon who once ruled much of Belkzen as a sadistic warlord. In order to defeat him again and save both Korvosa and the queen, the PCs must journey deep into the orc-held lands of Belkzen and brave the haunted reaches of Castle Scarwall, once the dragon's seat of power. Somewhere deep inside waits the holy weapon Serithtial, the sword responsible for his defeat hundreds of years ago. Only on its edge can the dragon be driven from the world.

This volume of Pathfinder also features a gazetteer of the brutal lands known as the Hold of Belkzen, a presentation on Zon-Kuthon (god of darkness and pain), and several new monsters native to Belkzen and the haunted depths of Castle Scarwall.

For characters of 12th to 14th 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.

I just bought PF #11 and I have a questions about the contents. First off, I like the descriptions of the deities so far very much, and they help bring a clearer picture of the different faiths of Golarion. Part of what I love about the extra information is the extra spells for clerics of the faith and the prestige class, such as the Spherewalker of Desna, and the variant classes, such as the druid dedicated to Lamashtu.

But when I read the part of Zon-Kuthon, I noticed the lack of bonus spells and prestige/variant class.

Is this because there will be a deities book out soon, and that book will hold that info, or will there be no more extra spells and prestige classes tied to religion from this point on?

Part of the reason Zon-Kuthon lacks a prestige class or spells is that we had a late-breaking error with our pagination—basically, we had a 98 page Pathfinder the day before we were supposed to ship to the printer, which is a problem for a product like Pathfinder that's only 96 pages long. The spells and prestige class got the boot, as a result. The spells will resurface in the Gods & Magic book, but the prestige class got rolled into a very similar drow prestige class (the Pain Taster) that's scheduled to appear in Pathfinder #15.

Going forward, though, the plan is to keep doing a prestige class and one or two new spells for each deity that gets an article in Pathfinder; the next one appears in Pathfinder #13—Cayden Cailean!

I hope we'll see a Zon-Kuthon PrC at some point though, as he's my favorite deity so far. We don't have one for Lamashtu either. Will we ever get evil god goodies?

Couldn't you simply release the booted content as a free web enhancement? Pretty pretty please with sugar on top?


How much background information is contained in this relating to the whole of Belkzen and the orc within vs the specific area for this campaign.

It does not really have much information on the Orcs. There is a Pathfinder Companion coming out soon on Orcs. That will have more of the information you are looking for.

There is, actually, an 8 page or so gazetteer of the Hold of Belkzen that focuses primarily on describing various locations within that area. But if you're looking specifically for info about orcs, you should check out the above-mentioned "Orcs of Golarion."

By Gazetteer do you mean "Pathfinder Campaign Setting: World Guide -- The Inner Sea (PFRPG) Hardcover" ? I have the gazetteer and it doesnt have 8 pages on Belkzen :P

Hopefully it will be out soon, im going to try to stretch city of golden death out as much as i can in order to get one of these to spice up the sandbox idea i have that will work through Belkzen :P

I'm pretty sure James is refering to the article in Skeletons of Scarwall about Belkzen. :)

It's funny that I just finished reading this ap. It was fantastic and I also believe James was speaking of the article in the ap. The is also info in the original campaignsetting book with locations and such. I hope that clarifies James statemen.

Paizo Employee Creative Director

Yeah; I'm talking about the Belkzen gazetteer in Pathfinder #11.

"World Guide: The Inner Sea" will have a much abbreviated version of the Belkzen entry. Only four pages long—a combination of what's in the current campaign hardcover and some of the material from Pathfinder #11.


Playing in a group that is going through this adventure, and I was wondering? Was it supposed to be impossible to get through? And why is there no loot to help you get through it in the dungeon. We ran into a nest of Greater Shadows and we were a hairs breath away from not walking out of it in one piece. That seems to be a bit of over kill as far as I am concerned. Also think that there would not bee that many Greater Shadows in one place. A d6 incroprel creatures that do a d8 stat damage is a bit much.
