Chapter 2: "Raiders of the Fever Sea"
by Greg A. Vaughan

Bound for adventure upon the pirate vessel they’ve taken as their own, the heroes face a sea of dangers as they chart a course to become true Free Captains of the Shackles. But life as a pirate doesn’t prove any easier now that they’re in command, as deadly sea monsters, the corpses of drowned scallywags, and raiders from the deep rise to oppose them. When a most unusual map falls into the adventurers’ hands, they have the chance to change their fate in a single daring raid. Is it the heroes’ destiny to be the next victims of the merciless waves, or will fortune smile upon them and spur their rise as the newest and most infamous pirates of the Shackles?

This volume of Pathfinder Adventure Path includes:

  • “Raiders of the Fever Sea,” a Pathfinder RPG adventure for 4th-level characters, by Greg A. Vaughan.
  • A gazetteer of Golarion’s many oceans and seas, and an exploration of the various aquatic races that inhabit them, by Adam Daigle, with Patrick Renie, F. Wesley Schneider, and James L. Sutter.
  • A journey to Butcher’s Rock and deadly cyclopean prophecies in the Pathfinder’s Journal, by Robin D. Laws.
  • Six new monsters, by Jesse Benner, Mark Moreland, Steven D. Russell, and Greg A. Vaughan.

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.

First Pett, then Vaughan. My vote for "most deadly AP" goes to S&S!

Nice, a chance to become pirates and a gazetteer for the deadly denizens of the deep.

are there going to be alignment restrictions for this ap?...i am having trouble imagining anyone of good alignment electing to escape enslavement then choosing to become a pirate of their own free will...

I don't think there is going to be restrictions but as you said might be hard for good characters. Plus Paizo has already said they are recommending Paladins won't work. This sounds like it will be the first AP where evil characters might work real well and good characters less well.

No alignment restrictions. The Player's Guide will talk about how one might play a good character in this AP.

Paladins are likely to be the only "casualty" of it all.

Alright, this and my subscription schedule are teasing me that I might actually get two chapters of AP goodness all at once, in March. Is this true, or just a cruel prank?

Also, we're really rocking the gods throughout this AP. Besmara (thank you SO much, my cleric in Savage Tide worships her), Torag and Norgoober? Quite a divine lineup.

I am having difficulty deciding what I'm most excited for, this or the interplanetary stuff. You guys really have a strong lineup this year.

It's true that the release planned for December slipped to January, which means there will be a double-up month when we get back on schedule. The website data currently paints an optimistic picture of that happening in March, and we'll do our best to make it happen sooner rather than later, but I suspect that in reality, the double month will probably once again be August.

But isn't it July that's usually a double month, with either August or September (I can't recall which) being a "no adventure path" month?

I'm not complaining, my wallet is ready to commit hari-kari, I'm just wondering if you're saying that the "late" adventure path will be caught up during the usual double month in the summer.

August ended up being the double month last year, when we got part 6 of Carrion Crown and part 1 of Jade Regent in the same shipment. The confusion might be that the August shipment actually started shipping during the end of July due to GenCon's very early August date.


Paizo Charter Superscriber; Pathfinder Battles Case Subscriber; Pathfinder Deluxe Comics Subscriber

No confusion, I was just too lazy to be precise :) If I recall properly, pretty much every year there's been one double (or even triple) adventure path shipment, and one month where there's none.

So, no Torag?

I thought we wouldn't be free of the diety articles until SStar...

Paizo Employee Creative Director

The ocean article got too big (and is, arguably, too important to this, a very nautical themed AP)... we'll be doing an article about Torag at a later point in this AP if all goes according to plan.

No pressure. The 2x sized Crown of the World back in JR#3 was a great move. I'm sure a similar mentality is driving this one.

If Torag ends up getting bumped all the way to SStar, where there might be an actual run-in with a dwarven town, that's totally cool. (There's a bunch of dwarves working the gasmines in Riddleport, ja?)

I just can't imagine how Torag fits into S&S without some weird shoehorning.

I believe the Hurricane King has a ship fully loaded with firearms from the gunworks of Alkenstar. Or, more precisely, the gunworks that are a result of the dwarves in the region making guns. So, that could be a means of bringing in Torag.

You'll be ruining my OCD by not having a deity article in AP-instalment #2 :)

Seriously though, a double-length ocean article sounds great!


Pathfinder Adventure Path, Companion, Modules, Roleplaying Game Subscriber

I have no problem with getting a double length article if it sounds interesting...and it does:)


Loving the cover art on this one, very exotic looking.

Actually, it was the 10th. Or at least I got mine on the 10th, so the book should start shipping to subscribers on Monday.

I got my email that says it is due to ship next week tonight.


This may sound off topic but it is most definitely not.

Yup, I received my email on the 10th. They've already deducted the money from my account! AHHHHHHH YEAH!

EDIT: Looking at the top of the page, it says I purchased it yesterday.

Yeah it shows that once they put a hold on your money. Mine says I bought it Thursday. That is because once they put a hold on the money it is to late to change the order I believe. Hopefully Monday we will see them going out so we can get access to the PDF's.

Sweeeeet! Now if I send you one dollar in the mail can we make that happen sooner rather then later? At the very least that will get you a candy bar.

I am so loving the first in this AP... Don't know if I can wait for the 23rd to roll around to get my PDF copy of this one. I love the treasure map tat, but I'm wondering where it leads... ahem...


Is the similarity of Lady Smythee and B. Jenet from King of Fighters intentional? Because I found myself laughing pretty hard when I saw her picture.

EDIT: Even their backstories are similar. This has to be intentional.

Taldor Contributor

Just finished skimming through the pdf.

So, when are we going to get the instructions for building our own ship, re the introduction? I'm really obsessing about finding a good model. The only 1/60ish (28 mm) scale ship out there that's not an arm and a pegleg is the Revell Pirate ship, but's kind of cartoonish.

The paper model from Worldworks (the Maiden) is best I've found that's affordable, but it looks like a small nightmare to put together, and costly to print out.

I cannot wait for the pdf! I haven't been this excited to read an adventure path since Kingmaker!

That's the one Rob uses in our office game. Whatever it cost, both in money and time, was well worth it from a player's perspective. The model does wonders in increasing the immersion in the environment and helping with tactical situations involving the masts and various decks.

I'm considering picking it up. That's a good review...

Subscribers, as part of their subscription, get access to the PDF when their subscription shipment goes out. This occurs prior to the street date indicated in the product above.

I can't speak for the art, but I wasn't familiar with B. Jenet, so any backstory similarity is coincidental.
