Chapter 5: "The Price of Infamy"
by Tim Hitchcock

The adventurers now have their own island and port, but they’ll need more than one ship to defend it. When a past rival sends a fleet to attack them, they’re forced to pull out all the stops to defend their island home, scouring the harbors and docks of the Shackles in order to recruit more ships and crews to their flag. Yet when they sail to the attacker’s own island to get their revenge, the adventurers discover a traitor—one whose betrayal threatens not only their own fleet, but the very islands of the Shackles themselves.

    This volume of Pathfinder Adventure Path includes:
  • “The Price of Infamy,” a Pathfinder RPG adventure for 11th-level characters, by Tim Hitchcock.
  • Fleet battle rules that allow players to stand as admirals and commodores directing their own armadas against enemy fleets in large-scale naval warfare, by James Jacobs.
  • A glimpse behind the gray veil of Norgorber, Golarion’s most secretive deity, by Sean K Reynolds.
  • Lock-breakers and sea-devils in the Pathfinder’s Journal, by Robin D. Laws.
  • Four new monsters, by Savannah Broadway, Ryan Costello, Mark Moreland, and Sean K Reynolds.

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.

ISBN–13: 978-1-60125-421-4

Sounds very cool, just curious where is the art of the girl from?


It's Belia of Zadoth from Rival Guide (page 30). Artist is Carolina Eade.

Cheliax

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

Ah ok, thanks. I have that book. Just so much pathfinder art I like I can't remember it all.

Osirion

Something tells me that the name of this port should be Santo Poco. I'll just put that out there now.


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

Interesting now we get our very own fleet of ships.


Ooh, Norgorber!

This will be the last article covering one of the major gods of Golarion, won't it?

Correct. Starting with Shattered Star, we're moving on exclusively to deities and demigods beyond the core 20.


That is seriously awesome. The religion articles are my favorite "extras" in the APs. I hope SKR keeps writing at least some of them.

Hmm, this sounds kind of like Kingmaker, which suddenly makes me want to get my hands on this AP whereas before I was more lukewarm about it.

Well... in the interest of managing expectations... this is NOT "Kingmaker on a boat." There's not going to be much at all of "empire building" in the vein of Kingmaker in this AP.


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

As long as there is plenty of interesting places to explore, treasure to be had, and sea beast to slay then I am sold.

I should have emphasized that it sounds "like" Kingmaker in the sense that the characters become leaders and have to gather followers and the like.

The art isn't the final cover art - she's from the Rival Guide, and you're not too far off...

1) I know.

2) So I read (How the Hell am I supposed to save some money if I keep buying Paizo products)

3) The "aura" kinda help.

4) Thanks.


Why does this appear between chapters 2 and 3 on the sequencing..it threw me for a second.


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

So when are we going to get the updated art and info for this one?

Paizo Employee Chief Technical Officer

We just updated the previous one on May 3.... so maybe another couple of weeks.

Paizo Employee Chief Technical Officer

I've updated the product image and description to match the finished product.

Hi James

Since the Torag article got cut/removed from AP #56, do you have any idea where it's going to shake out to be published yet?

The Torag article got moved because there was an art mixup (in that art was never ordered for the article... oops!). It's scheduled to appear in Pathfinder #62.

The cover chick looks really unhappy.


Thanks, Joseph Wilson.

You think so? I interprete the stance as ostentatious - must be her upbringing (I'd say she's Lady Cerise Bloodmourn).

You could say that...

I really hope Scylla and Charbydis make an entrance here, they are kinda underused so far :p

and two AP in July?

Cheliax

To echo Sincubus: Not that I'm complaining, but why is Paizo giving us two lovely APs instead of one this month? :)

Silver Crusade

Pathfinder Comics Subscriber; Pathfinder Adventure Path, Tales Subscriber

Because we didn't receive an AP in, January (or was it February, or maybe both). So they've had to squeeze these ones in a little tighter to recalibrate the schedule.

Cheliax

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

What Dude said, this year due to things, the AP got way behind as in 2 months behind. Since right now in July we should be getting part 6 and already have parts 1-5 and we are just now getting 4-5. So next month we get two more, number 6 of this AP and the first of the next AP.

Osirion

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

Yeah, this is what the Paizo folks are talking about when they say the next few APs will have no or few subsystems. Setting up mini rules systems like kingdom building, caravan building, or ship & fleet management is a huge developer time sink.

Andoran

Pathfinder Adventure Path Subscriber

Why does my account say that this print edition is on back order? Could this be why I haven't received a shipping notification for this month yet?

Paizo Employee Chief Technical Officer

We're still shipping subs out. (It always takes longer when we have a hardcover releasing the same month.)

As for why it's now a backorder, well... sales were much higher than anticipated, and all of our existing stock is pre-sold. Don't worry—if you're a subscriber, or placed your order anytime before the button switched to backorder, there's a copy in the warehouse for you. But if the button said "backorder" before you placed your order, it might take a few weeks to get you copies. (We're doing our best to make sure we'll have copies by Gen Con!)

Andoran

Pathfinder Adventure Path Subscriber

Ironically, it no longer says "Backorder"! Thanks for the pep talk anyways!

Paizo Employee Chief Technical Officer

That means they added in the inventory we brought back from PaizoCon! It won't last all that long....

Shadow Lodge

It now says "backordered" again :-(

I am a subscriber. Unfortunately this means that the rest of my subscription items, plus all the other items in my sidecart, are now on hold until this volume becomes available. I'm a little concerned about that, as the last time I had a 'sale' item in my sidecart it ended up being no longer available by the time the order eventually shipped.

I hope the delay is just because the warehouse crew are still digging themselves out from under a backlog. But if that isn't the case, and there is going to be any significant delay before this order can be fulfilled, is it possible to ship everything but that from the "pending" order (plus, with any luck, all the sidecart items), and send AP #59 with the next subscription (currently scheduled for early August, I believe)?

Your order is currently in the hands of the warehouse staff and will be shipping soon.

Thanks, Ross. The warehouse elves always exceed expectations!

Finally a section with some bits of Norgorber info! With aphorisms I am hoping, though by my count that leaves Torag and Desna without aphorisms. (Desna had a section in RotRL but didn't get aphorisms, unless it was updated in the anniversary release.)

Actually we don't have torag either as his article was pushed back to ap 65 from what I've heard.

Also anyone care to give me an idea of what monsters show up in the bestiary here?


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

spoiler:
Bakekujira(Undead whale with aura of undead animals and vermin)
Cetacean(Blue Whale, Crimson Whale, Narwhal)
Galvo(Magical Beast comprised of electric eels)
The Stabbing Beast(Norgorber's Herald)


Yes! Bakekujira, I really thought we wouldn't see more asian-based monsters anymore after Jade's Regent.

This gives me hope for Hyakume, Bakeneko and the Sickle Weasel


1 person marked this as a favorite.

Aw, so nice to see my baby out in the world...eating people. Well, I don't think he'd be terribly effective at it, but goodness knows he tries ^_^

Shadow Lodge

Cool to see more whales put out makes the prospect of whaling campaign more interesting by the minute. Also now I need to find an image of this "Stabbing Beast".

I did the bakekujira--he's my first stab at monster creation for Paizo. Sadly, I think if he did try and swallow someone, it would be rather straightforward to swim in between his ribs ;>> Poor dear...
