In the sleepy coastal town of Sandpoint, evil is brewing. An attack by crazed goblins reveals the shadows of a forgotten past returning to threaten the town—and perhaps all of Varisia. The Rise of the Runelords Adventure Path begins with this goblin raid and takes players on an epic journey through the land of Varisia as they track a cult of serial killers, fight backwoods ogres, stop an advancing army of stone giants, delve into ancient dungeons, and finally face off against a wizard-king in his ancient mountaintop city. This hardcover compilation updates the fan-favorite campaign to the Pathfinder Roleplaying Game rules with revised and new content in more than 400 pages packed with mayhem, excitement, and adventure!

Celebrating both the fifth anniversary of the Pathfinder Adventure Path and the tenth anniversary of Paizo Publishing, this new edition expands the original campaign with new options and refined encounters throughout, incorporating 5 years of community feedback.

    The Rise of the Runelords Anniversary Edition contains:
  • All six chapters of the original Adventure Path, expanded and updated for use with the Pathfinder Roleplaying Game.
  • Articles on the major locations of Rise of the Runelords: sleepy Sandpoint, the ancient Thassilonian city of Xin-Shalast, and others.
  • Revelations on the sinister magic of Thassilon, with updated spells, magic items, and details on tracking sin points throughout the campaign.
  • A bestiary featuring eight monsters updated from the original Adventure Path, plus an all-new terror.
  • Dozens of new illustrations, never-before-seen characters, location maps, and more!

The Rise of the Runelords Anniversary Edition is not part of any subscription.

ISBN-13: 978-1-60125-436-8

FAQ:

Q: Will you be doing hardcover compilations of all of your Adventure Paths?
A: No. This is a special celebration of our very first Adventure Path on its 5th Anniversary. Several of the original volumes of Rise of the Runelords have been unavailable in print for a long time, yet it remains one of our most popular adventure paths; that circumstance presents a unique opportunity for us to expand and update it for use with the Pathfinder RPG, and to apply lessons we've learned about making Adventure Paths over the last half-decade. Our other adventure paths are largely still in print, and many of them were designed for use with the Pathfinder RPG to begin with; we have no plans to recompile them.

Q: Is there anything missing from the original AP volumes?
A: Yes—otherwise, this book would be more than 600 pages long! Some of the monsters and other things created for Rise of the Runelords are now part of the official Pathfinder RPG rules, so they're not reprinted here. The original volumes also included monster ecologies, bestiary entries, and other campaign setting material that isn't directly used in the adventure itself; those items are also not present in this collection. The Pathfinder Journal fiction featuring Eando Kline is not presented here either, but it has been compiled—along with the installments from the subsequent two Adventure Paths—as The Compass Stone, now available in ePub form. We have also replaced some of the artwork from the previous edition, and replaced the six individual introductions with one new one.

Is there an ETA on the Player's Guide or is that just going to release on the same day as the AP itself?

So... still apples and oranges then.

Referencing a publisher with 8 small pdf-only products that was clearly a one-man-band and folded after a year is not my definition of 'established companies'.

established company =/= sinister adventures

non?

Those of us who pre-ordered it and have an active subscription to the AP will likely get access to the PDF around the 9th or 10th next week, depending on when things ship.

Not that I would mind, mind you. With this release on the horizon, I'm happier than ever to have weathered the bloody Shackles and get "early" access to a pdf-version of my soon-to-be shinyshiny.

Oh, I understand now. This should begin shipping next week, starting on Monday if I understand correctly. When your particular package ships is all dependent on whatever mystic metric the warehouse crew uses to determine order.

Mine has actually already been processed (just last hour), and I am now able to donwload both of the new Skull and Shackles and the PC Folio but not the Runelords Anniversary Edition, so maybe it's being sent separately from the regular subscription items since it isn't technically part of any subscription.

It doesn't matter too much for me since I can just pick it up in two days at Paizocon anyway, but for others who are curious, you may get your other subscription pdfs before the RotRLAE.

Does this mean subscriber subscriptions are already shipping or is it just for people going to Paizocon?

I also got my email and downloaded all of the subscription items. But my Runelords Anniversary Edition was not available for download yet, although I was charged for it. I am excited for this.

We are currently "authing" subscription orders (including those picking up at PaizoCon). Shipping from our warehouse will not start until next week. It's a bit confusing on the outside, but basically we're getting ducks in a row for people who pick up their orders in person :)

Cool just wondering if there is any chance of anyone not attending Paizocon getting there PDF'S before next week.

My account was authorized today too, but I'm not expecting to see PDFs until next week, though with the authorization being earlier, they might be available next Monday...woot woot!

Hmmm...maybe I'll have it in my possession by next Friday assuming the world doesn't end or some other catastrophic calamity.

I can't download anything. Are you picking your stuff up at PaizoCon?

I got everything but Runelords and yes I am picking mine up at Paizocon.

It may well be like the core book - the PDF was held until the actual release date. I'd be surprised if his is held until the 18th, but it might be being held until during Paizocon.

Are people that pre ordered starting to get the "will expect to ship in next week" emails?

It looks like it is just the people that will be picking things up at Paizocon is so far. Which makes sense, the rest of us I imagine will get the emails tomorrow and then the email saying it shipped next week.

The PDF sale date is an indicator of what the street date for a given product is. So, the print edition will also release on July 18.

Chris, any idea when the PDF for Runelords will be put in our downloads if we have received the PDF for everything else for this month?


Is the free PDF offer for new hardcover pre-orders from AP subscribers still in effect or has it expired? The hardcover is currently listed as likely to ship within 2 to 6 business days when I looked into ordering it.

Ah, it's a glitch then. I figured I'd give you guys the benefit of the doubt that it was all part of the plan.

I can't speak for anyone else, but I'm more than happy to wait until tomorrow and get the book itself at Paizocon--I know you guys must be stressing and working extra to make Paizocon great for all of us, so please don't worry about my missing pdf until at least after the weekend festivities.

Yes but the only time I took a PFS battlemap to Kinko's they wanted over $100 per sheet to print the map from a PDF.

Why? Was it because of copyright?

I work in a print shop and there is no reason we would charge you $100/sheet if you wanted a battle/flip mat printed. We wouldn't charge you that much even if we printed it on a large format printer. As long as we are talking about a regular 24x30 map, that is.

That looks a great deal better - thanks. Downloading as I type this.

BTW - as you can see, my subscription order is marked "To be picked up at Paizocon". Unfortunately my trip to Seattle fell through, so I won't be able to pick it up in person. While I'm not bothered about the extra few days until you can ship things next week, this does mean I won't be able to take the book along and get it signed by the authors :-(

My VC is at PaizoCon, and has stated his willingness to help out with this and get a book signed for me. Would he be able to pick up my subscription order, or will I have to purchase a second copy?

Sorry—to prevent fraud, we only let subscribers pick up their own orders, and only after showing valid ID.

The offer is not restricted to pre-orders. If you purchase this book, and you have an active Adventure Path subscription at the time we charge and ship you the book, you will receive the PDF at no additional charge.

Ross is mistaken: the free PDF *is* restricted to preorders, as it says in the product description; new orders are considered preorders up until the July 18 release date.

These kinds of promotions are quite common from what I've seen. Sorry it didn't work out for you!
