Draw your cutlass and set sail for adventure!

For thousands of years, pirates have captured the imagination, their rough-and-tumble lives filled with a boundless lust for blood, gold, and glory. Being a pirate is the ultimate freedom—freedom to take what you want and never apologize. Whether from the decks of massive slave galleons or beneath the sails of swift ships, pirates hunt the seas, singing chanteys and hoisting the Jolly Roger as they seek out the next unsuspecting merchant. They are the wolves of the sea, and their hunger can never be sated.

Whether you want to abandon the life of a landlubber to join a pirate crew, hunt down their murderous ships in the name of justice, or simply follow a mysterious map to buried treasure, Pirates of the Inner Sea has everything you need to know about piracy on Golarion, all of it one hundred percent player-friendly and ready to guide you on your journey.

    Inside this book, you’ll find:
  • In-depth overviews of six major pirate organizations in the Inner Sea region, including the government-backed privateers of Andoran, the slavers of Okeno, the high-seas buccaneers of Riddleport and the Shackles, and the quick-moving brigands of the River Kingdoms. Each entry details the pirates’ history, notable captains, activities and hideouts, preferred ships, and more.
  • Pages of new pirate weapons and equipment, from hook hands, cutlasses, and tar bombs to peg legs, treasure chests, and grog.
  • New pirate archetypes for several different classes, including the buccaneer bard, the freebooter fighter, the corsair ranger, and the smuggler rogue.
  • The Inner Sea pirate prestige class.
  • A detailed look at the faith of Besmara the Pirate Queen, goddess of all those who make their living spilling blood on the water.
  • New pirate-themed spells for casters of numerous types and faiths.
  • New character traits to help you customize your pirate character mechanically as well as thematically.
  • Sample pirate codes, minor pirate groups, a timeline of important pirate events, and more!

This Pathfinder Player Companion is intended for use with the Pathfinder Roleplaying Game and Pathfinder campaign setting, but can easily be used in any fantasy game setting. In addition, it is particularly useful for players of the Skull & Shackles Adventure Path.

Written by Amber E. Scott

Each bimonthly 32-page Pathfinder Companion contains several player-focused articles exploring the volume’s theme as well as short articles with innovative new rules for social, magic, religious, and combat-focused characters, as well as traits to better anchor the player to the campaign.

I love that Paizo always plans synergy with the timing of their releases, like how this supports the Shackles AP and Rule of Fear supported Carrion Crown. Great release strategy.

Gary developed some special code that allows Paizo to listen in if you have their website open at your gaming table.

I am pleased that Paizo continues to produce supporting flavor materials for folks to pick up. This particular flavor isn't one I care for, but the variety, the willingness to experiment is something I strongly support.

Thank you, Paizo, for making a product I don't care about, because I know the odds are that much higher you will make many about which I do.

Yo ho yo ho a Pirate's life for me

Initially we were looking at Legacy of Fire after we ran Jade Regent but I think my group will get sucked right into a pirate campaign with great enthusiasm

And so we'll find out what the Captain Jack Sparrow of Golarion is like. Savvy?


Can't wait!

And I agree with dartnet: do you have a cadre of telepaths at the ready to scour our brains? So much ideas that pop up in Pathfinder: eerie!


I'm surpised that in the description it doesn't say anything about naval battle rules, hopefully Pathfinder Player Companion: Pirates of the Inner Sea will have some.

I would expect the naval battle rules to be in the Skull & Shackles AP.

EDIT: On top of what is in Ultimate Combat.

Paizo Employee Creative Director

Rules for naval conflicts are more in the category of GM tools than Player tools, and as such don't really have a place in a Player's Companion.

There's rules for naval conflicts in the GameMastery Guide, and a much expanded chapter on vehicle rules in Ultimate Combat. There'll be more rules (likely something between those two options) in one of the volumes of the Skull & Shackles AP, I suspect.

Parallel design. It's a real thing, and it can be really creepy and weird. I saw it a LOT in Dungeon Magazine's slush pile—you'd get like six similar adventure proposals in a week, for example... and not just generic. For example, we once got several adventure proposals about a bug-like race from the ancient past invading a small town to abduct the denizens of the town as "spare parts" for their own bodies that they then used, Borg-style, to gain powers to attack nearby towns. The details varied, but the plot was the same, from all over the world.

Sometimes it only takes a popular movie or book or current event to trigger a bunch of similar game design ideas. Other times the natural flow of what types of products a company releases encourages specific design choices. And sometimes, I do think there's some sort of hivemind out there writing adventures...

Pettmind?

I realize this book may mention Riddleport to some degree or another, but am I correct that there is no full-blown book on Riddleport (e.g. in the same manner as Korvosa, Absolam, Kaer Maga, etc.)?

Either way, this one is on my "must buy" list.

Cheliax

Whether I run this AP or run my own home made campaign, I am very keen to have information about pirates in and around the inner sea.

Nevertheless it's a refreshing idea... VERY MUCH. I am in to have it.


I'll be thar to plunder yer booty, matey. Arr...

Part 1 of Second Darkness, as well as the Second Darkness Player's Companion, both have a significant amount of information about Riddleport.

Yep. Once we have the real cover finished there will be a post indicating that it was updated.


Thank you for taking the time to reply to my post and helping me find the info on naval battles Justin Franklin and James Jacobs.

Sweet the cover has been updated and some how I missed it.


I wonder if it will tell how the pirates treat slaves.....


Pathfinder Comics Subscriber; Pathfinder Adventure Path, Roleplaying Game Subscriber

That's some awesome cover art. So glad I added this line to my subscriptions :)


Pathfinder Adventure Path Charter Subscriber

Looks like the "back link" to the previous product in this subscription line is missing for this product. Just a heads up.

Paizo Employee PostMonster General

Thanks for the heads-up! We've fixed the link to the preceding product, though it may take a little time for that fix to percolate everywhere.

So where in the Inner Sea region do you find the equivalent of a Cornish accent?

Taldor

Any word on how much of this will be Pathfinder Society legal? This is pretty much all my local group plays, so it's a pretty large factor in my decision making process whether it's legal.

At least it is less then a month away before this one comes out unless the release date gets changed...I shouldn't have said that.

This book's been at the printer for a bit. Only thing now that could really change the release date would be an unplanned hangup at customs... or if the boat it's being shipped to us on sinks... or if the truck that's bringing that shipment to our warehouse explodes... or Cthulhu steps on Paizo...
