Golarion is the primary world of the Pathfinder campaign setting, but it is not alone. Far beyond its lands and seas, sister worlds revolve around the same sun, their residents connected by magical portals or ships of terrifying magic and technology. Now take your game off-planet and explore these weird new worlds for yourself!

This book offers a detailed introduction to the science-fantasy worlds of Golarion’s solar system, each complete with its own mysterious locations and cultures. Discover how your swords and spells match up against the trench dwellers of the Red Planet or the angelic Sarcesians who soar between asteroids. Research the mysterious origins of the sealed world-ship of Apostae, or hunt vortex sharks in the freezing seas of Kalo-Mahoi. Though strange and new, each of these worlds uses the same Pathfinder Roleplaying Game rules as Golarion itself.

    Within this 64-page book, you’ll find:
  • Gazetteers of every planet and major moon in Golarion’s system, from the steamy jungles of Castrovel and the machine-ruled rock of Aballon to post-apocalyptic Eox and divided Verces, where one side is always day and the other night. Plus, uncover information on the residents of the sun, Golarion’s moon, the asteroid belt called the Diaspora, the dark regions beyond mysterious Aucturn, and more!
  • Introductions to the major cultures inhabiting the system. Will you join Castrovel’s beautiful Lashunta, fight beside the four-armed giants of Akiton, study with the hyper-evolved Contemplatives of Ashok, petition the undead Bone Sages of Eox, or face down the insectile legions of the Forever Queen?
  • Easy new rules for adventuring on other planets, including discussions on gravity, temperature, time, vacuum, and traveling between worlds.
  • Adventure hooks for every world, tailored for GMs currently playing on Golarion.
  • Six brand-new alien monsters, from intelligent dragonkin who bond with humanoids to the great oma space-whales and amorphous, blimplike Brethedans.

Distant Worlds is intended for use with the Pathfinder Roleplaying Game and the Pathfinder campaign setting, but can easily be used in any fantasy game setting.

YES! Sweet! Finally! Oh, the awesomeness!

Umm...

I mean... uh... yeah, ahem... This will be a great addition to my collection.

I just hope that one of those alien races from Akiton is a balanced version of a Thark or at least inspired by them. The cover mock-up is suggestive of it, anyway.

At least we already have the four-armed, white apes to use for monsters.

This needs to be more than the standard 64 page format please.


Pathfinder Adventure Path, Modules, Roleplaying Game Subscriber

Awesome, now this is what I am talking about, planets, outerspace, alien lifeforms, and alien magic.


Looks very nice!

Taldor

Oh my, that's pretty epic. A bit surprised it's a soft cover instead of a slightly higher priced hard cover, but I'm not going to complain.

Suppose that's the advantage of having so many of these types of source books, you can test the waters before committing to a $40 hard cover.

Taldor

OHHHH This one sounds interesting. Guess I might get it.

Well yes. So posting in threads for products I really like is the only way for Paizo to get feedback from me. This is the sort of product that keeps me a subscriber.


Pathfinder Roleplaying Game Subscriber

Yeah this is pretty amazing, but I can't help but be slightly disappointed that this isn't part of a larger hardback Manual of the Planes type book.

I think a 64 page primer is great. It allows the awsomeness of Paizo to then create hardcovers/campign settings for each world?

Cheliax

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

I just wonder how much coverage we'll get for each planet. Maybe 6 pages each for Castrovel and Akiton, then 4 pages each for the other worlds, and then the bestiary and magic sections?


Oh yeah! February can't come soon enough!

My Beloved Spouse (Kobold Chorus: "We love you!") is a bit too enthusiastic about this.

Which means I should worry. What's the save vs Interplanetary Teleport?

No save, because you must be willing - or unconscious, or beaten up, bound, gagged, shoved into a portable hole, and let out once the carrier of said hole used the spell.

I'm giving your wife ideas, ain't I?

So, how does one get Paizo to agree to do something about certain topics, which deserve more than mere 64 pages?

Buy 6 copies of the 64 pager, and make all of your friends, family, acquaintances, and just random strangers off the street buy six copies each, too.


I have only one word for this: AWESOME!! And possibly in time for my birthday (or at least birthday monies ;)). Now ... hoe about a full-on sci-fi game? ;)
