Chapter 6: "From Hell’s Heart"
by Jason Nelson

With an enemy fleet intent on conquering the Shackles looming on the horizon, the adventurers must launch their own fleet of pirates and buccaneers to defend against the invaders, culminating in an epic naval battle at the edge of the Eye of Abendego. Will the adventurers defeat the invading navy and save the Shackles? Or will the independence of the Free Captains be eradicated forever?

    This volume of Pathfinder Adventure Path includes:
  • “From Hell’s Heart,” a Pathfinder RPG adventure for 13th-level characters, by Jason Nelson.
  • Pirate plots and sinister situations to expand the horizon of your Skull & Shackles campaign, by Adam Daigle.
  • More menacing sea monsters and terrors from the deep plaguing the Shackles, by Adam Daigle.
  • A pirate showdown in the Pathfinder’s Journal, by Robin D. Laws.
  • Seven new monsters, by Adam Daigle, Amanda Hamon, Mark Moreland, Eric Morton, and William Thrasher.

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.

Being a subscriber is AWESOME!

TLiz - Thanks for putting our fears to rest.

OK I'm now officially confused..is this in stock or not..if it is in stock then surely it should be shown as pending on my sub and not as a back order..especially as Paizo have already charged me for it.

Subscribers will get their copies. However, newly-placed orders may be delayed, so we must treat them as back ordered.

We have not charged anyone for his book you. You are probably seeing an authorization.

Key words "Subscribers will get their copies";"newly-placed orders may be delayed" i.e. subscribers should be on schedule.

It pays to subscribe.

So does this mean we are getting an ecology of sea monster's article with this or are we getting a whole second bestiary just for sea monsters?

The article talks about infamous sea monsters that plague Golarion's waters. It starts with a handful of brief descriptions of notable sea monsters, then presents three with greater detail (statblocks, past deeds, and adventure hooks). So, sort of both.

So pretty similar to the Spawn of Rovagug article from AP 24?

Great to see the 6th AP sold out for the public, that is good news for Paizo and fans. Congrats!

Funny they say have not charged anyone for the books YET my bank account Friday showed the exact amount taken for both my Equipment guide and my AP S&S 6 plus shipping. So how can that be, that you've not charged yet my bank account took out the money?

Edit... Actually shows 8/2/12 in the exact amount for both and shipping

Paizo pre-authorizes the funds when the "shipping in the next week" emails go out. Your bank may show that as a payment, or a "hold" on that money. When the actual shipment takes place, that "charge" will be dismissed and the actual charge (possibly different if you changed shipping options or added something, for example) applied.

They actually haven't charged you yet, it's just a test charge to make sure you have the ammount in your account and for some accounts it shows up as a charge.

So, will this month's products shipping start today or what?

(Not that I think I have a snowball's chance in Asmodeus's throne room of getting my PDFs on a Monday - seems like I am now permanently a part of the Tuesday evening batch.)

They should start today but they likely won't finish until Friday or Saturday. Here the past few months mine have been going out on Wed each week.

Okay so I know that it's been said that subscribers will be taken care of with regard to the backorder business. I can't help but notice, however, that, even as a subscriber, my August order in Order History has Hell's Heart labeled as Backorder. Is this just part of how labeling works in the system, or should I expect my copy of Hell's Heart to be in back order?

As mentioned, I'm aware that it's been said that we'll be taken care of but I've recently reactivated my subscriptions (August 1st) after a period of suspension so I'm not quite sure if that puts me in another category somehow.

Anyway, it's not a massive deal as long as it doesn't hold up the rest of my shipment. Just curious about the "Backorder" label in my Order History is all.

The "Backorder" label will only effect people who purchase without a subscription (unfortunately, we can only display it one way or the other). If you have a subscription shipment on its way to you, you will get your copy.


A Question of Level:

Okay, so now that I have all Six Books of the AP (well, I only have the PDF of Book 6, but still) I've decided to check the levels needed for each Part of each Book (I'm not going to bother tracking XP, I'm just going to let them level in between Parts, as necessary).

So, I'm a little fuzzy on just what's going on in Book 6. I'll put it in a Spoiler (as not to give away certain things):

Levels in Book 6:

The level descriptions are a bit more vague in this one.
Part 1: Start at Level 13 (no-brainer)
Part 2: Start at Level 14 (doesn't explicitly say this, but it should work)
Part 3: ??? It says that if the PCs are on the low side of 14th when they board the Filthy Lucre to let them bring along allies.

Question 1: Does this mean that the PCs are expected to be 15th Level when they board the ship?

Question 2: If so, would it mess up Part 3 to just let them Start Part 3 at 15th level?

Thanks in advance!

Lots of interesting sea monsters in this one, still wish there were giant starfish or at least a starfish like sea monster that is CR12+.


Any answer to my "A Question of Level"?


***BUMP***

Scarab Sages RPG Superstar 2008 Top 4; Contributor; Publisher, Legendary Games

No, it wouldn't mess them up to be 15th level when they start part 3. It may alter the dynamics of the final encounters because they'll be stronger, including potentially having access to 8th level spells.

The original turnover instructions were for an adventure to go 13th to 15th. In the text of the adventure it feels more like 13th to 14th and that they'd be 15th after it's over, but if you think that feels a little odd that's fine.

If you are inclined to have them be a little higher level anyway...

Spoiler:
feel free to email me for a more harrowing version that differs considerably from the final version for a variety of reasons. In essence, it involves a full-on assault on Fort Hazard itself, rather than bypassing it. It is not for the faint of heart... :)

Thanks Jason!

That sounds great! Depending upon how the players take it, I might use your alternate instead!

Triple thanks. Jason Nelson has a history of writing too much for his AP volume and then shrugging and sharing it with everyone because he is ridiculously awesome.

Dark Archive

The document was also quite illuminating as to how much of an AP writer's work goes unused- I can't hardly place any blame for the briefness of the naval battle when Mr. Nelson was evidently writing it without the rules from S&S5! Not to mention the Eye of Abendego events or 'finding the armada' which didn't make print.

Either way, the awesome design notes went a long way towards 'fixing' this adventure for my group.


Why was the pdf postponed to the 23rd?

Due to shipping delays, the retail release date for all of our August products is now August 23; the PDF onsale date is the same.

I really do like the Seaweed Siren, it reminds of the ducktales version of the siren.

I want to know about these new guns mentioned on the additional resources page for this book! Why must the delay for ultimate equipment mean this book gets held back too?


Why hasn't the price for the PDF been listed?

The price of the PDF is $13.99. You will be able to purchase tomorrow, also. It looks like there was a minor display error, which has now been fixed.

Have any Brits received their copies of this, #61, and Ultimate Equipment yet? It's over two weeks now for me. :-/

Edit 40 minutes after the above: UE just turned up. Maybe the AP books will turn up tomorrow.


What are all the monsters in this one?

Please say, Afanc, Abaia, Indus, Decarabia and such monsters!

Addu
Devil, Drowning
Faceless Whale
Gargiya
Lorelei
some dino monsters
Seaweed Siren


Thanks!

can you give a small discription of them please? (if you have the time) and which dino's?

Dark Archive

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

In order

Magic dragon eel/snake looking thing.

devil with a lot of water based powers - Frail, finlike wings erupt from the back of this serpentine creature, whose head resembles that of a ram-horned, four-eyed fish, and whose muscular arms end in masses of writhing tentacles like fists made of sea anemones.

A whale with big teeth and no face and looks like icky skin.

Firey snake dragon thing.

Big stoney medusa looking head with tentacles come from the hair and neck.

Kronosaurus
This enormous, finned reptile has a long mouth full of sharp teeth and moves through the water with incredible speed.

Nothosaur
This long-necked reptile swims through the water propelled by four paddle-like feet, whipping a long and slender tail behind it as it gnashes its sharp, needle-like teeth. (has picture the other two dino's do not)

Zeuglodon
This elongated, whale-like creature moves through the water with an eel-like motion despite its wide, f luked tail. Razor-sharp teeth fill its almost reptilian mouth.

Seaweed Siren
This creature’s three singing heads sway atop serpentine necks that extend from a bulbous body split by a wide, toothy mouth. Pungent strands of seaweed cover the creature like slimy hair.


Thanks! You rock!

Funny they gave Nothosaur the picture, I would expect the most famous (kronosaur) getting it!

Addu sounds a lot like Abaia.

Lorelei sounds a bit weird :p

Dark Archive

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

ok I take that back maybe it is a picture of the kronosaur, I honestly didn't pay that much attention. I just seen the flippers and thought the Nothosaur, but looking again i think it is the kronosaur as the creature pictures has no long neck.


It must be the Chronosaurus than, as the nothosaur doesn't have flippers :)

Star Voter 2013, Star Voter 2014

The book also some monsters in the Sea Monsters of Golarion article

Gigas Clam-clam monster whose's that takes humaniod form but with a mouth where it's face would be.

Ugash-Iram-looks like a 12 armed squid with a toothy maw instead of a beak, unique creature and a worshipper of Dagon.

the third is a Scylla with cleric levels

lorelei has a murmur ability wich is similar to the Harpies lure but effects undead as well.


The clam art, is that a giant clam or its less interesting humanoid form art?

And the scylla has new art?

Yay! This turned up today (and #61)! :-)
