Chapter 1: "The Snows of Summer"
by Neil Spicer

The Reign of Winter Adventure Path begins with an exciting new adventure from RPG Superstar winner Neil Spicer! Every 100 years, the Witch Queen Baba Yaga returns to the nation of Irrisen to place a new daughter on the throne, but this time, something has gone wrong. Far to the south, winter cloaks the forest near the village of Heldren with summer snows. The heroes venture into the wood and discover a magical portal to the frozen land of Irrisen, whose supernatural winter will soon engulf all of Golarion unless they can discover the fate of the otherworldly witch Baba Yaga—a quest that will take them through snowbound Irrisen to even stranger lands beyond.

“The Snows of Summer” is a Pathfinder Roleplaying Game adventure for 1st-level characters. This volume kicks off the new Reign of Winter Adventure Path, and includes a gazetteer of the villages of Heldren and Waldsby, details on the cultural and magical legacies of Irrisen, and several new monsters in the Pathfinder Bestiary. Author Kevin Andrew Murphy launches a new Pathfinder Journal novella in this exciting volume of the Pathfinder Adventure Path!

    This volume of Pathfinder Adventure Path launches the Reign of Winter Adventure Path and includes:
  • “The Snows of Summer,” a Pathfinder RPG adventure for 1st-level characters, by Neil Spicer.
  • A gazetteer of two villages—one in Taldor and the other in wintry Irrisen—to help flesh out the characters’ environs, by Rob McCreary.
  • A look into Irrisen’s legacies and mysteries GMs can use for this campaign, written and compiled by Rob McCreary.
  • An alchemist’s journey to Irrisen’s capital of Whitethrone in the Pathfinder’s Journal, by Kevin Andrew Murphy.
  • Four new monsters, by Neil Spicer and James Wilber.

The PCs are dealing with a bigger problem (perhaps the return of Choral), or the Bandit Council. The synopsis suggests that the only the one small town is effected by the strange weather, so maybe the mayor of Tatzlford or Oleg's or Varnhold (choose the smallest town in the PC's kingdom) asks for volunteers to find answers.

Been busy.

Congrats to Neil on finally getting a first installment.Now all I have to do is figure out why a Winter Witch would want to stop this.

I just noticed a little something in the Artifacts & Legends book...

Spoiler:
The Dancing Hut of Baba Yaga is going to be in this issue.

Does that mean we might see the owner of this item statted up somewhere in this adventure path? I'm a sucker for high-level celebrities.

There's a lot of stuff from "Earth" coming out nowadays. Saint Cuthbert's Mace, Baba Yaga, Rasputin... Will this AP go to Earth?

Seoni, Valeros, Kyra and Merisiel pop up in 1918 Russia. Now that would be awesome!

Josef Vissarianovich: "Na zdarovya tovarich* Seoni! That was very nice of you to blast those white counter-revolutionaries into the Caspian Sea. I'm afraid we'll still have to put your friend Kyra against the wall, though. The people's dictatorship has no room for old religious superstitions, even ones from another planet who seem to be real."

Merisiel: "STAB!!"

And thus the history of 20th century Eastern Europe turned out a lot nicer than in the real world.

I don't remember who the other three are, but I know it's been confirmed that Feiya is one of the iconics for this. I think Valeros is one of the others.

Shouldn't that be : "ask, work really really hard, for years, on everything they throw at you, smiling all the time, and you shall receive"??

Looks like it from out here ;)

RPG Superstar 2009, Contributor

I thought that was obvious. It's all part of the freelancing definition of "ask"... ;-)

Ahhh, I see. That makes sense ;)

Not sure how relevant it is to this AP, although with Daigle's teasings, who knows, but there is post by everyone's favorite Creative Director:

::The Dwarf king Santa Klaus rides into the scene on his sleigh with his army of Gnome helpers and charges into battle with his magic dwarven double waraxe, Naughty & Nice.::

As you can see i would love to make an equivalent of Santa Claus for Galorian to finally bring Christmas to Irrisen.

aka. Christmas theme adventure for the holidays.


Zergtitan, not sure if you're aware but have you seen the trailer for Rise of The Guardians?

It will feature a Russian Santa Claus who also happens to be a bad-a$$ with tattoos. If you're looking for inspiration for a Golarion Santa this movie should help.


thanks block knight, yeah I've seen the trailer and it does have some inspiration on my idea. I'm thinking maybe have him be some sort of paladin and his helpers be gnome fighter's with craftsman skills.

I choose gnomes for his helpers because a) elves in Galorian don't fit the character need and b) the personality of fun-loving helpers seems to fit.

Dwarf for Santa, because i feel that the jolly belly, red face, and beard fit the character. plus Dwarves are also craftsman as well.

Very excited about this AP. Can't wait!

This year winter's coming late, but with a bang.


When do the players guides get released? The same time as the AP chapter?

Cheliax

Pathfinder Adventure Path Charter Subscriber; Pathfinder Campaign Setting, Companion, Modules Subscriber

The player's guides are usually released along with the first installment of an adventure path.

There was a precedent set with the new format of Player's Guides for Shattered Star that it may come out a week early or so.

Cheliax

Pathfinder Adventure Path Charter Subscriber; Pathfinder Campaign Setting, Companion, Modules Subscriber

Aye that's true but it'll still be tied to the first installment of an adventure path in that it comes out at roughly the same time as that installment +/- a week or so.

Work Horse Neil Spicer Starts it off!

I'm currently running the Carrion Crown AP with one of our groups. We are almost done with the first book and I've been reading ahead. I just finished reading "Ashes at Dawn" today, so I am very happy to see this bit of news. :) I've enjoyed "Ashes at Dawn" tremendously, and look forward to "The Snows of Summer".


Finally something that might convince one of the Russian culture nerds in my group to run an AP so I can get to play.


First price increase ever. Still the best deal for your gaming dollars.

RPG Superstar 2009, Contributor

I've certainly aimed to make it worth your while. ;-)

And, you know Paizo has, as well. :-)

Contributor

Same here with the novella for the AP fiction. :)


Why the price increase?


That's been discussed by Eric Mona in one of the blog entries.

EDIT: Linky for your convinience.

Qadira

So the prices are up on the pront version... however according to what I read are the reasons for the price increase, PDF prices should remain the same. Is that true.

there should be a question mark there

Cheliax

I'm fairly certain it's been said that the price for PDFs will rise slightly as well. My memory might be faulty, though.


I'd imagine staff enjoys being paid more, too, also other fixed costs might have increased over the past couple years.

And the economy of today is not the economy of 2007.

Looks like my cold sorcerer will be on hold a bit longer, to see if any nifty traits, archtypes, or spells will be popping up.


Will this AP take the layout of Rise of the Runelords Anniversary edition or stick with the traditional look?

Paizo Employee Webstore Gninja Minion

There will be some layout tweaks with the Adventure Paths starting with Reign of Winter.


How is rise of the runelords anniversary edition different from regular adventure paths ?
