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.
Okay I must protest. Paizo staff, you need to stop putting out all of this awesomeness. My wallet can't keep up! Seriuosly though I must say that you men and women at Paizo are putting out great stuff. Keep up the great work!
