Chapter 4: "The End of Eternity"
by Jason Nelson

Hidden amid the tattered parchment and mundane ink of a mysterious map hides the fabulous paradise of Kakishon. A realm of mystical wonders, mythical beasts, and legendary treasures, this long-lost creation of one of history’s greatest wizards once again inspires the bold to seek its wonders. Yet time, ancient magic, and bitter rivalries work to corrupt the incredible realm, turning it into both paradise and prison. Can they tame the powers of Kakishon’s magical islands and best the masters of the wondrous land? Or will they forever be prisoners of paradise?

    This Pathfinder Adventure Path volume includes:
  • "The End of Eternity," an adventure for 9th-level characters, by Jason Nelson
  • A glimpse into the Maelstrom and the lives of its enigmatic natives, the proteans, lords of primeval chaos, by Todd Stewart
  • The magical rites of Sulesh the Great, master of seals and binder of genies, as transcribed by Wolfgang Baur and James Jacobs
  • Pathfinder Channa Ti faces danger on the River Asp in the Pathfinder’s Journal, by New York Times bestselling author Elaine Cunningham
  • Six new monsters by Adam Daigle, James Jacobs, Jason Nelson, F. Wesley Schneider, and Todd Stewart

For characters of 9th to 11th level.

Pathfinder Adventure Path is Paizo Publishing's monthly 96-page, perfect-bound, full-color softcover book printed on high-quality paper. 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 products use the Open Game License, they are 100% compatible with the 3.5 edition of the world's most popular fantasy roleplaying game.

ISBN–13: 978-1-60125-173-2

*absorbs self in reading through the pdf*

A couple reactions:

1) You did an awesome job Jason. Seriously cool stuff.
2) Very sneaky James, fitting in material cut from The Great Beyond into the protean ecology in AP#22. :)
3) The artwork. My God is the artwork nice.

*glee*

1. Thanks!

2. I have unfortunately slacked off entirely too much from working this afternoon while reading said pdf - yes, I get all gleed up when something I wrote finally comes out, even if it's only to have my glees get dashed by the cruel, cruel editor (I'm looking at you Mr. Jacobs!) for mangling my OBVIOUSLY, COMPLETELY, IRREFUTABLY PERFECT CREATION!!! Meanie. :P

3. The artwork is great. I love the Golden Ram picture and the "opening the map" picture the best I think, though the edge of the world certainly has its charms. The cover, featuring the lovely and talented Dilix Mahad, is of course fabulous, and I love the intro pages and the border art too.

*BUT*

[nerdrage over the spookification of the adventure edited]

So, I guess the adventure comprises of only 99.8% PURE AWESOME. Unless you like cats named Spooky, in which case it's a solid 100 all the way baby... :)

And, having heard a bit more as to the whys and wherefores of Spooky's appearance, I hereby give it a 100% thumbs up for awesomeness and rescind and revoke all prior rants to the contrary!

If I may make one thing VERY clear, I take absolutely NO responsibility for the gratuitous placement of a cat named Spooky in the adventure. NONE! You hear me, NONE!!! I mean... Spooky? SPOOKY? Not something Arabianish, or even exotic, or Katapeshian. Spooky. Dude...

Well, I'm looking forward to this read Jason With all your help and comments for everyone in the RPG Superstar '09 contest and your killer submissions the year before, I'm glad to see you in print finally.

Aw shucks. You're sweet to say so, Matt. I was very tickled when the good Mr. Spicer mentioned me as an influence, and he went me one better by winning the whole darn thing, but I was happy to give whatever help I could to anyone and everyone in the competition, and I'm glad for anything I said or wrote that was a help to you in making the Top 4!

The way I see it, we're all in the hobby to have fun, and I'm happy if folks get an idea or three along the way that dials it up to 11 when they're at the gaming table, shooting for the top as a SUPERSTAR, or even just reading a game book. I hope the adventure does not disappoint!

BTW, if you're looking for more of my comedic stylings courtesy of Paizo, you could dial up:

The PF Campaign Setting (Lastwall, Nirmathas, Mendev, the Worldwound, half-elves, half-orcs, psionics, and the sample NPCs)

Osirion, Land of the Pharaohs (cowritten with Todd Stewart - he did the glorious fluff, I did the gravelly crunch)

Dungeon Denizens Revisited (shambling mounds FTW!) - the PDF is up for subscribers, and I think the book comes out next month.

Bestiary monsters: shaitan (PF 18), miengu and wyrmskull (PF 22), and the proteans (naunet and imentesh in PF 22, keketar in The Great Beyond - again, Todd Stewart came up with the concepts and descriptive text, I did the mechanics)

Cities of Golarion (Vigil), coming this fall!

Hopefully more will come down the road, but in the meantime it's really neat to see my name on the front cover of a D&D product. My nerdvolution is now complete... :)

*Scurries off happily to My Downloads page. Weeps when he finds it's not there. Comes back to shake fist and curse at Jason for raising false hopes. Alternatively, it could be going up next month on schedule, and Mr Nelson just made an honest slip in timing. Curses Jason again just to be sure.*

I accept the first shaking and cursing... but I can tell you that I downloaded it yesterday. Maybe I got an early download email or link as a contributor or something.

I'm interested to look and see what Rob McCreary, he of the Ooze Imperium, did with the gelatinous cube, and Boomer Von Boomerstein with the mimic.

Jason,

I think it's because you're a contributer to the product. It's not due until May in print, and I don't get the PDFs until the same month as the hardcopies usually (My current subscription order is for the Guide to Katapesh and Part 3 of Legacy of Fire only). But the curses and fist shaking stand, dammit. ;-)

Looking forward to seeing the book when it does turn up in my downloads.

Jason, I loved your posts in the Beta playtest, so I'm a fan of your work before I've even seen it! Can't wait to get this one. I have a feeling that Spooky will be something like the black cat that gives Neo deja vu in The Matrix: memorable exactly because something feels a little off. I'm looking forward to the promised awesomeness!

I assume this is an easter egg planted by the editors in memory of a recently departed feline friend? That makes me happy. I can't wait to see how Spook the Mighty Hunter will live on forever in the pages of Pathfinder.

Indeed. I thought actually it was a very sweet gesture and just the sort of thing I might have done if I ran a game company. People can dismiss it as sentimental mush if they like, but I rather enjoy working with a game company that feels (and acts) like it has a heart. It's all a business, of course, but it's not "all business," if you know what I mean.

It is; Spooky got inserted into the adventure during development to honor his memory.

I guess that's only for subscribers, then, since I don't have a download. :(

I guess I'll have to wait until May when the hardcopy comes out (and another 3 weeks or so for international shipping) to see Jason's shambling stylings and Boomer's mimic mayhem (not to mention the editorial butchering of my own gelatinous cube!)

Oh, and on topic, looking forward to End of Eternity too!
