Chapter 4: "The Infernal Syndrome"
by Clinton Boomer and James Jacobs

All Hell Breaks Loose

In the bowels of one of Westcrown’s most esteemed halls of power lies an unfathomable evil, a terror beyond all reason and sanity, shackled and broken by the magic of a lost archmage. For years this menace has laid fuming, endlessly testing the bars of its prison, gathering its hatred and planning its revenge. Now the machinations of a deadly conspiracy have weakened the chains of this nightmare’s bonds, and in their growing cracks rise the flames of the damned and the promise of Westcrown consumed in hellfire. Can the PCs infiltrate the labyrinth of a madman to put an end to an evil beyond even the heroes of legend? And what foulness would seek to ruin all of Westcrown by gambling with its very soul?

    This volume of Pathfinder Adventure Path continues the Council of Thieves Adventure Path, and includes:
  • “The Infernal Syndrome,” a Pathfinder RPG adventure for 7th-level characters, by Clinton Boomer and James Jacobs
  • The citadels and secrets of the Hellknights, Cheliax’s iron-shod inquisitors, by F. Wesley Schneider
  • Insights into the soul-shaking world of fiendish possessions, by Adam Daigle
  • Murder and mystery for Pathfinder Varian Jeggare in the Pathfinder’s Journal, by Dave Gross
  • Five new monsters, by F. Wesley Schneider and Hank Woon

A Pathfinder Roleplaying Game adventure for characters of 7th to 9th level. The Council of Thieves Adventure Path is the first to take full advantage of the new Pathfinder Roleplaying Game rules, and works with both the Pathfinder RPG and the standard 3.5 fantasy RPG rules set.

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. Pathfinder Adventure Path volumes use the Open Game License and work with both the Pathfinder RPG and the standard 3.5 fantasy RPG rules set.

:-k Is the world prepared for a Boomer AP adventure?

Paizo Employee Developer

I think so!


You know, if you'd have told me at the time that the creepy shirtless guy wearing belts on the PHB:PSA would be writing adventures for Paizo I would have called serious bulls**t on it, but now... Yeah I think the world is ready for what Boomer has in store for us. I'd dare say I'm stoked to see it!

So the Council of Thieves is run by Blink Dogs? Who knew?!


Will Wes or someone else actually be doing a Hellknight Prestige Class (or NPC) class in this AP series? Or in one of the Chronicle books?

This is always been a hotly demanded feature, so I'm just curious where it's going to show up (assuming it is).

(Though I'm still waiting for hell to freeze over so that we can see the Magesmith PrC!)

Paizo Employee Chief Technical Officer

I've updated the cover image and product description to match the finished product.

Pun intended

Anyway, any idea when the products for December will start to ship?

We're currently expecting them to go out in the days leading up to Christmas.

Well, there's still time for our deliveries to shift either way, but assuming they don't, it would be unlikely that most of you would get the print copies before the 25th. Getting the subscriber PDFs is more likely, though.


Pathfinder Adventure Path, Tales Subscriber

Thanks, Vic. I'm crossing my fingers and putting cookies out for the postman.

Wow. This cover is badass dope.

People are expecting 28 before Xmas? I'm still waiting on 27!

Copies of 27 showed up in my FLGS just in the last week or so, so if you're looking to get it at a brick & mortar store, your geographic location and the store's resupply schedule might be playing into it. If you have ordered it from Paizo, check and see when it was shipped. Most of the subscribers I know have theirs by this point, though, as it shipped three weeks ago or so.

RPG Superstar 2011 Top 32, 2012 Top 4

Shipped last Tuesday, apparently. Whoof. This is the first time I've encountered this month-long-mailing-cycle-phenomenon, and I've subscribed since Burnt Offerings. Is it common for hard copies of an issue to make it to two different subscribers a month apart?

Be lucky that you don't live overseas. I had PF6 arrive a month before PF5 ;)

Almost the same, but with PF4. Nothing still beats the big Ptolus package, three months in transit.

So, it is common, then. I guess I'm just lucky that all of my previous APs have arrived in a reasonable amount of time. It's just disheartening to see the AP in the FLGS for a week, and still not have my subscription. I live in the lower 48, too, not Dakar or Montevideo or Prague or New South Wales.

It sounds like an isolated case for you, then. If it only shipped last week, I would guess there was an issue with your order that held it up, though you'd have to ask someone at Paizo what that was. Could have been billing issues, non-subscription sidecart items in the order, or a computer glitch. As long as you got the ship notice, though, it's on its way to you and it's out of Paizo's hands.

You know when I love Paizo ? I love Paizo when I see a statblock that reads:

Advanced HD fre infused stone guardian (Tome of Horrors Revised
220, Advanced Bestiary 111)

Going strong and using the creme de la creme of OGL material. Class !

Also: Amazed at the difference in power between a 3.5 kolaryut and the PF version. Fear the law, obey or succumb !

So, I'm wondering when the PDF will be available for purchase? It's not yet listed here to buy...

Silver Crusade

The PDFs are available from the street date of the print edition, subscribers get it early.

I see.

So, shouldn't the PDF be available now, seeing as I can purchase the hardcopy version from the site right now?

EDIT: I can now see that the PDF will be available from Wednesday (thanks to looking at the item on the PATHFINDER page - it just isn't listed here).

Silver Crusade

Pathfinder Adventure Path, Campaign Setting, Card Game, Companion Subscriber

The street date is on Wednsday so it should be around soon ... enabling PDF downloads earlier than street date would make brick and mortar resellers quite upset. They already have to stomach subscriptions :)


Un...does anyone noticed that p.92 the next volume should be "Mother of files" instead of "The Infernal Syndrome"?

I just finished running my group through this adventure.

Spoiler:
The tention had been built up so greatly that they all thought they would be going up against a full-powered pit fiend.

When the cleric cast a dismissal spell and the pit fiend failed the saving throw by 1 point, there was a huge cheer of joy. This happened in the first round.

I was only kind of bummed out because I wanted to run that fight.

I even had a great piece of music running in the background. But the platers were happy. So everything is good.

This was a great adventure! An awesome idea, as well. Bravo.


Pathfinder Adventure Path, Modules, Roleplaying Game Subscriber

Jacob, I'm glad you had fun!

When I ran the mega 2e adventure The Rod of Seven Parts in the '90s, the final fight lasted one round thanks to a saving throw of 1 on the part of the big bad. Sometimes it's funny when that happens!


Who's the artist that did the super-sweet cross-section of Citadel Enferac, on page 68?

I can't match the signature with the contributing artists.

(It's probably fairly obvious, so bear with me!)
