Chapter 5: "The Thousand Fangs Below"
by Graeme Davis

All the danger of Saventh-Yhi, the jungle city lost from the modern age, pales before the terrors that lurk below its shattered streets. Beneath the ancient ruins rots a realm of darkness and monsters over which Saventh-Yhi long stood guard. Into the eternal night of that realm below the adventurers delve, coming face to face with the degenerate inheritors of a lost empire, fiend-worshiping denizens of the dark, and the zealots of a decapitated god, all in the hope of saving Eando Kline, one of the greatest explorers the world has ever known. But even if they can manage to free Eando, will the PCs be able to escape his captors, the fanged legions of the serpentfolk?

    This volume of Pathfinder Adventure Path includes:
  • “The Thousand Fangs Below,” a Pathfinder RPG adventure for 13th-level characters, by Graeme Davis
  • A foray into the mysterious realm of Ilmurea, a ruined city of dark magic and deadly poison, by Clinton Boomer
  • A glimpse into the fractured mind of Nethys, god of magic, by Sean K Reynolds
  • Jungle justice in the Pathfinder’s Journal, by Robin D. Laws
  • Four new monsters of the jungle, by Jesse Benner and Sean K Reynolds.

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.

Well, the PCs ally with the Pathfinder Society from the beginning. Somehow, in reading this adventure's description, I imagine a venture captain muttering "They're coming to get you, Eando."

Yeah, it's totally Eando Kline.

Not necessarily. We'll be setting it up so that the PCs get to choose their allies. And none of them will necessarily be "the right" choices. You could very easily play this AP wiht the Pathfinder Society as the bad guys.


This makes me happy!

I've worked with Graeme once before; he wrote a Freeport pirate adventure for Dungeon Magazine back in the mid 100s somewhere. I'm REALLY excited to get him on the AP line!

Me too! Or I'm excited to see it happen! For those who don't know, Graeme really helped put Warhammer Fantasy RPG on the map. He's going to add a really cool and distinct flavor to any AP.

Sounds interesting, and a touch Lovecraftian which is always a plus in my book

And a nifty green cover to boot.

Speaking of covers, I really like the purple background you use for temporary cover pictures. Any chance of seeing that as an actual background for one of the paths ?

Any chance the Nethys article will include a prestige class to extend the Mystic Theurge for four more levels?

Paizo Employee Creative Director

Nope. No chance at all. The point of the Mystic Theurge class is that you trade off those four levels in return for getting to play two spellcasters at once.

I had kind of imagined a prestige class with a prereq of spell synthesis that would work like the old Archmage or Hierophant, granting +1 level of a spellcasting class and the menu of weird abilities for spell slots, actually. I guess I should have been more specific. After all, any cleric of Nethys with 10 levels of MT is probably no more than 1 feat away from being able to go Loremaster for levels 19-20, and maybe earlier if they plan ahead and pick up that skill focus early, and have the faster spell progression classes as the stuff prior to MT.

While on the subject of Nethys, though, any details on ruincasting, the Magaambya and the tempest-sun mages in this AP?

WAY too early to start revealing that level of detail. The articles, in some cases, haven't even been assigned to authors yet, in fact. (Although Sean WILL be writing the Nethys article.)

There are a lot of numbers in the names of this AP. Since you already have "Thousand" in #36 as well, I wonder if the Azlanti theme would be better served with "Myriad." Is it too late to change?

i'm really looking forward to this one. i've really loved Mr. Davis' Freeport work.

I'm sure the adventure will be good; I'm just worried that folks might get the idea there's a one-to-one, onto correspondence between this and #36. Like this one will be The Revenge of The Cosmic Dentist, with 1 scream per fang.

That would be an unusual logical leap, since the two volumes are separated by about a half year of time and are in different Adventrue Paths. It's already been solicited, in any event, so while it's not too late to change the title, it's not likely to happen.

In any case, "The Myriad Fangs Below" or "The Plethora of Fangs Below" don't sound NEARLY as evocative as "The Thousand Fangs Below," if only for the loss of the TH consonance between "The" and "Thousand" and the S consonance between "Thousand" and "Fangs."

What about: A Lot More Than Thousand Fangs Below, Possibly Even a Myriad Fangs Below!

That has it all.

I think I bought Graeme's work back in the mid-nineties, purchased the six-part series for The Enemy Within Campaign, and fell in love with a game that totally trumped our 2nd edition game at the time. Now you say his name and I have the same reaction as when I hear "Monte Cook is in the house!"

Paizo is awesome at snapping up great writers.

Dungeon 107 - a really really good adventure, that I have used to start my Freeport campaign in Greyhawk. Can't wait to read his newest opus (i.e. "Thousand Fangs Below").

Didn't he write the Adlerweg modules a long time ago for AD&D? I think "The Sentinel" and "The Gauntlet".

Screw D&D, Graeme Davis is THE man when it comes to Warhammer RPG and several White Wolf books. He wrote some of the best early Vampire books and Wraith: Oblivion. Also, GURPS. I'm so excited that this legendary person is writing a Pathfinder module, wohoo !


Pathfinder Adventure Path, Campaign Setting Subscriber

Geez, this is an amazing adventure - probably my favorite since Sound of a Thousand Screams. Hopefully Paizo can get Graeme Davis on board for more projects.

A question on the Nethys article: How does this affect the classes of the APG? I'm planning on allowing Witches, Summoners and Inquisitors to use the new spell and the revised spell list simply because given the description of Nethys I can't imagine them not being equally welcome. Just raising it as a point of interest.


I just wanted to say that the Wizard Ezren is really sad because as a level 13 Wizard with his Int he should have 2 7th level spells, but his 'player' apparently forgot to make note of that when he gained his most recent level. Fortunately, Kyra's 'player' wasn't so negligent. :)

-regarding the NPCs in the back of the book-

You can as well as forget about these, they're going away from Carrion Crown on. Apparently the only reason for their existence was for folks to argue over stats.

Not quite true... although that's certainly ended UP being the main reason.

Since fantasy MMO video games tend to use the same style of art we do (and in some cases, the same ARTISTS we do), I suppose it's not surprising.

I don't play video games and MMOs. I've been inundated recently by various game PRs to review and posts so that's probably why I noticed the cover.

It was actually the face that caught my eye. Reminded me of some of those shoot-em-up characters in video and MMOs games.

That was a mixup at the art order stage—the picture of Nethys is the half-page horizontal opener at the start of the article, while the picture of a cleric doing her thing is the vertical one.
