Add to Cart
A decade ago the Dragon Empire suffered a bitter defeat at the very edge of Nuria-Natal and routed into the Sands of Sorrows. There a young officer named Shard and his gnoll warband stumbled through a vicious sand storm and into a long-lost ruin. These ruins provided the small band shelter but also turned out to be the entrance to a well-guarded tomb, where they glimpsed treasure and strange magical writings that seemed to float throughout the tomb—and perhaps the secret to control or abjure the God-Kings of Nuria Natal!
Great wealth awaits those who dare much. This is a classic-style Pathfinder Roleplaying Game adventure for 2nd level PCs near any desert or hills.
"The changeover happened with Dark Roads & Golden Hells book, back in July. I got tired of hearing the two arms of the company called "Open Design/Kobold Quarterly", and I heard from a lot of retailers that they thought the company only did the magazine.
The idea is to keep the Kobold theme and extend it to the sourcebooks, adventures, and PDFs, to make it clear that the Kobolds do more than the magazine.
And the Kobold Press imprint will, hopefully, be easier for people to remember than the longer double name. Guess we'll see!"
I had a lot of fun coming up with the Kobold Squad as I think of them. Enough fun that I would love to write a new adventure specifically for them. Realistically though I'm not sure how many would survive the tomb to do more adventuring for the Dragon Empire.
Is it me, or has the bend towards NOT overusing the "of the" in a title sometimes NOT make sense? Now I am not a grammar master, but I have been around a literary block or two. I know what sounds good (to me of course).
This title would be better if it WERE called "The Tomb of the Forgotten King." I know this sounds a bit tired, but that is mainly b/c of the use of the words "Tomb" and "King" - many titles have something similar - "Tomb..." this and "King..." that, so maybe THAT is where the effort should have been spent to be creative. This way the editor/writer would not have had to (my guess) purposefully say, "Let's avoid the 'of the' in this title by. . . ."
I think that's silly. The focus of this adventure sounds like it is a TOMB, NOT the KING. Therefore the SUBJECT should be the TOMB and not the KING. And again, it just rolls more smoothly and sounds better as "The Tomb of the Forgotten King" than as "The Forgotten King's Tomb." You??
Besides, I think we need to watch our overuse of apostrophes in titles.
