Chapter 5: "Tide of Honor"
by Tito Leati

The heroes arrive in Minkai only to discover an empire on its knees. The Jade Regent has twisted the ruling government to cater to his despotic whims, and throughout the realm the people suffer. Before the PCs can attempt to stand against the tyrant and liberate Minkai, they must first earn the trust of its people and recruit aid from across the beleaguered empire—all the while dodging murderous oni and deadly ninjas controlled by the Five Storms. Defeating bandits who ride forth from a hidden fortress, rescuing a famous geisha from a deadly island prison, and standing tall before a corrupt daimyo’s army of samurai are all in a day’s work for the hopeful liberators of the empire.

    This volume of Pathfinder Adventure Path includes:
  • “Tide of Honor,” a Pathfinder RPG adventure for 12th-level characters, by Tito Leati.
  • An overview of the mysterious nation of Minkai, a mystical jewel of the Dragon Empires, by Tito Leati.
  • Revelations on the ways of Irori, god of history, knowledge, and selfperfection, by Sean K Reynolds.
  • Revelations and severed limbs in the Pathfinder’s Journal, by Dave Gross.
  • Five new monsters by Tito Leati, Sean K Reynolds, and Mike Welham.

Each monthly full-color softcover Pathfinder Adventure Path volume contains an in-depth adventure scenario, stats for several new monsters, and 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 world’s oldest fantasy RPG.

ISBN–13: 978-1-60125-385-9

What does "extensive gazetteer" mean? Is it double-length like in Hungry Storm?

It's not double length. "Extensive" means several pages, as opposed to one or two pages like what you get in the Inner Sea World Guide for every region. How many pages, I can't say for sure. Probably 8. This volume ALSO has a deity article in it, in any event, so it's a plain old normal ratio of support articles for this one.

Looking forward to the Irori article, I expect the planar allies will be interesting.

BTW, the Paizo spellchecker programs should have "daimyo" added to the word list so that "damyio" does not get through again.

This adventure seems like a logical place to try out the performance combat rules. Did they make it into the AP?

Soooo any idea when the cover for this one will be updated?

OOoooooh! Nice cover! I am already in love with the geisha... I hope she gets a romance score!


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

Nice looking Geisha but she does look a little sinister looking as well.

Love the pic of the Oni in the background as well.

She's the imprisoned island geisha. And I could be wrong, but I'm pretty sure she doesn't have a romance score—we're approaching the end game here, and there's NO TIME FOR LOVE!

Aw...

Every good movie climax needs that terrible reveal from the love interest that leads to the heartbreak/sexualtension and threatens the hero's resolve as he tries to take down his sworn enemy!

Or this just goes in a bin of "quotes from JJ to use and abuse"

Wow the Geisha is just stunning! Would love to see her become an Iconic character & especially get a miniature.

Any chance the Tide Of Honor cover will also a desktop photo for it?

Any idea as to when this AP will be shipped out this month? I am guessing the week of the 19th, thereby receiving an email the week of the 12th, but I want to be sure how much agony I will have to endure in waiting with anticipation for this AP installment. Good stuff guys!!

But what about after? I mean, there should always be a time after the adventure - I know, she would understand.

Tough decision: dump Ameiko and go for the mysterious stranger...

It got pushed back to January. Four more weeks of agonized anticipation I'm afraid.


I wonder why it got delayed?


Haven't there like 5 storms been reported on the west coast?

Doubt that's the issue. All the other books for December actually moved up a week. My guess is Tide of Honor was holding them back for whatever reason. Regardless, this happened last year with Serpent's Skull, so I was sort of expecting it.

Thanks for the information GV. I wonder if we will remain one month behind or play catch up at the end?

Changes to printing schedule is my guess. We use the same printer for all our books, and if we hit them with something unexpected, like a reprint or an extra product... or if some OTHER company does the same, then their print schedules change. Sometimes for the good, sometimes not. Delays in customs and delays to the boat's travel across the ocean can mess with things too... I'm constantly paranoid about having one of those boats sink halfway across the Pacific...

On the plus side if one ever did sink you might have a whole new school of fans, as fish start subscribing.... though you might need to water proof your books.

It's okay - if this installment is even half as good as the last I don't care about waiting. :)

That's a reason to hate waiting!

If it has to be January how about both parts 5 & 6 in January?

I'd say the most likely explanation is them bumping their schedule around to arrange their work around Chinese New Year, aka Tet, and the ten days preceding it, which falls on January 23 next year. It's a pretty big travel season over there, and like the Christmas to New Year's run, people want the time off then. Check out chunyun, the world's largest human migration. Basically, all China grinds to a halt as the rail system is packed moving people. It's so bad that last year or the year before, places almost ran out of coal because the railways couldn't keep up with the traffic.

My paranoia can't be something that drives business decisions.


I'd always wondered why that line of Paizo tinfoil hats had been pulled.


I just received an email saying, that

Quote:
Unfortunately, due to a delay in shipment from the printer, Pathfinder Adventure Path #53: Tide of Horror (Jade Regent 5 of 6) is now estimated to be released in January 2012.

And I was going WTF? has the piraty-thingy already started?

Do subscribers have to wait until January to be able to download the PDF version. I think I know the answer, but it hurts too much...


Is there ever going to be a moratorium on scenarios named "Tide of Something-or-Other"? (Especially when those scenarios have little or nothing to do with actual tides?)

So, any performance combat duels to win hearts & minds?


Wow. Not only is it delayed, it's delayed until at least the 20th of next month for subscribers. That's pretty rough business-- Nov 7th to Jan 20th seems pretty long. Thank god we're dragging our feet in our Jade Regent game.


Pathfinder Adventure Path Charter Subscriber

Luckily my gamers found my old 1st edition against the giants modules and are champing at the bit to get nine ironed into the next county by a fire giant.

So I, at least, have some time to wait...besides...all my cool christmas presents are now on back order anyway...

Come now! There's always time enough for love.

Perhaps we could have another blog post detailing the romance and friendship options for important NPCs, for those interested in the inevitable article "after Jade Regent" gameplay?

In case any lurkers were wondering about my question, a quick pass with C-f for "duel" only found ads, and "performance" only turned up bard references. Also, "daimyo" appears but "damyio" does not.

Can't wait to dig into the text!

Watch out, the earth yai's summons go to 11! Although given what happens to drummers, perhaps this is only fair.
