An urban, wilderness, and dungeon adventure for 8th-level characters

A malignant cult has taken root in the mystical and magical realm of Jalmeray. Known and feared throughout distant Vudra, the cult of Dhalavei has expertly destroyed organizations and societies from within for millennia. Now a new sect of the sinister Cult of the Ebon Destroyers has its sights set on Thakur Kharswan of Jalmeray, and the magistrates and bureaucrats behind the throne must hunt down and eliminate the cult before the unthinkable happens. If only there were someone they could trust to behead Dhalavei's cult before the assassins do the same to their beloved ruler…

Cult of the Ebon Destroyers is an adventure for 8th-level characters, written for the Pathfinder Roleplaying Game and compatible with the 3.5 edition of the world’s oldest RPG. In addition to the adventure, this volume also features a brand-new monster and a gazetteer of the city of Niswan, capital of the Isle of Jalmeray.

Written by Matthew Goodall, the winner of Paizo Publishing's RPG Superstar contest, which allows unpublished authors to compete before a panel of celebrity game designers and legions of their peers for the chance to write a Pathfinder Module.

Pathfinder Modules are 32-page, high-quality, full-color, adventures using the Open Game License to work with both the Pathfinder Roleplaying Game and the standard 3.5 fantasy RPG rules set. This Pathfinder Module includes new monsters, treasure, and a fully detailed bonus location that can be used as part of the adventure or in any other game!

ISBN-13: 978-1-60125-317-0

Cult of the Ebon Destroyers is sanctioned for use in Pathfinder Society Organized Play. Its Chronicle Sheet and additional rules for running this module are a free download (240 KB zip/PDF).

Note: This product is part of the Pathfinder Modules Subscription.

I should probably mention that the cover is just a mockup.

Paizo Employee Developer

You didn't get a cover commissioned and completed in the hour and fifteen minutes since the announcement was made? For shame.

Wow January 2011? Really? You guys sure like to plan in advance. :)


Pathfinder Tales Subscriber

How can they ever hope to get behind if they don't plan way ahead?

Cheliax

Pathfinder Comics Subscriber; Pathfinder Adventure Path, Campaign Setting, Companion, Modules, Roleplaying Game Subscriber

Oh I know, just that's almost a year ahead. I am not saying it is a bad thing mind you. Just saying is all.


The RPG superstar module is always in the following january I believe.

What, all the art orders for the product yet to be written haven't been turned in yet? Snap, snap!

Congrats Matt,

I am really looking forward to this adventure! Can't wait to see what you do with it!

Cheers!

A darn COOL mockup if you ask me!

The email we all got mistakenly says this:

After five rounds of intensive competition, amateur game designer Neil Spicer has won RPG Superstar 2010

Just an fyi to Paizo.

And congratulations to the winner.


Congratulations Matt! It's good to see a fellow Aussie win :)

Your adventure sounds really fun to run as well as play, and has a great exotic flavour.

Good luck with the writing process. I'm really looking forward to this one.

I think people will see that it says Matt Goodall won in six other places, including the title of the e-mail, and realize that they're witnessing the joys of botched cut and paste in action where it says Neil Spicer.

Can the title be just a mockup too? I love the concept, but Wes was right about the title.

Ah, well. Call it [scary word] of the [color] [scary word], it'll still be great.

Nobody. Move along. Nothing to see here. ;-)

As a lifetime fan of Gunga Din I'm hoping to see at least one of your NPCs played by Cary Grant!

And good on you for your win.


Okay I paid zero attention to the contest this year. But this looks cool.


Yeehaw and huzzah!
Congrats!


Pathfinder Roleplaying Game Charter Superscriber; Pathfinder Comics Subscriber

Congrats Matt!!


Does this imply that a Vudra accessory is coming out soon? (And if not, why not?)

To be fair, both previously published Superstar modules also use the "Blank of the Blank-blank" naming convention.

When can we expect an ISBN for this one?

Paizo Employee Creative Director

I'm pretty sure we'll be asking and/or brainstorming up a new title for this one... but maybe not. There's certainly something to be said for keeping the title that won the whole thing! And we're unlikely to do a Vudra book (this adventure doesn't actually take place in Vudra, after all).

Probably not until we do the next batch of product announcements in a few months. (If we don't come back and add one then, please ask again!)


Congrats Matt, nice to see a local boy win it, can't wait to read it...

Yeah, my criticism of the name doesn't stem from the formula. I actually love the formula, even though I wouldn't want it to be used every time. In this case, it's how successfully the formula was used that I'm concerned with. The flavor of this module, as well as the punch of the name, can be much better served by another "Blank of the Blank Blank," if the convention is kept.


This is going to be so awesome! The setting is killer and the adventure itself is crazy cool.

In the original thread I suggested the title of "Darkness Falls on Jalmeray" but I don't think anyone particularly cared for it :)

Paizo Employee Chief Technical Officer

We've updated the cover image—it's still a mockup, but it now has the correct logo placement—and we've added the ISBN to the listing.

Cheliax

Pathfinder Comics Subscriber; Pathfinder Adventure Path, Campaign Setting, Companion, Modules, Roleplaying Game Subscriber

I like the art currently on the cover.


Am I the only person thrilled to finally get some info on the Isle of Jalmeray and Vudrani culture?

No! I would love to see much more of this area, but I fear it's not a high priority for Paizo in the near future, as it would ideally link in to whatever they do w/ psionics. Assuming they ever do.

Cheliax

So is this going to have a Temple of Doom sort of vibe in it?

The new cover for this is rather awesome.

Agreed! Also good to know from the blog that Kieran Yanner, who does great work, is a good friend of Hyrum's. Let's hope that translates to more of his artwork in Paizo products!
