By Chris A. Jackson

A pirate captain of the Inner Sea, Torius Vin makes a living raiding wealthy merchant ships with his crew of loyal buccaneers. Few things matter more to Captain Torius than ill-gotten gold—but one of those is Celeste, his beautiful snake-bodied navigator. When a crafty courtesan offers the pirate crew a chance at the heist of a lifetime, it’s time for both man and naga to hoist the black flag and lead the Stargazer’s crew to fame and fortune. But will stealing the legendary Star of Thumen chart the corsairs a course to untold riches—or send them all to a watery grave?

From award-winning author Chris A. Jackson comes a fantastical new adventure of high-seas combat and romance set in the award-winning world of the Pathfinder Roleplaying Game.

It's possible when it says Inner Sea, it means Inner Sea... not Inner Sea region.

Good to see more authors getting involved, the more, the merrier!

This book is indeed set on the Inner Sea itself, mostly along the coast of Garund. Chris Jackson is a sailor himself--he actually wrote the book from a sailboat in the Caribbean--so he writes pirates as well or better than anyone I've read. I can't wait for folks to read it!

Contributor

Thanks for the Kudos, James. Torius and his crew do indeed log quite a few sea miles in this tale...the length of the Inner Sea, in fact! Just as the book was written and edited from Trinidad to Martinique,and many points in between. A writing sailor or a sailing writer...that's me, but I'm not sure which.

Would it be possible for all new product announcements to include the name of the cover artist? I suspect I'm not the only one who likes to be able to identify favorite artists. And really, these talented folks deserve some exposure.

Something tells me you will agree. :)

I asked that very question a while back. No answer was given. To be fair, it was in a very popular thread. But yes, that would indeed be a nice feature.

Contributor

I really love this cover! Denman really did an awesome job. A difficult scene to capture and he nailed it! Many Thanks! Also gotta agree with Dave, These great artists deserve some exposure. Love his work. Here's his site: http://denmanrooke.com/

Also, this is evidently Denman's first PFT cover! Send the man some LOVE!

I would love to see the full artwork for this cover. Similar to how the cover art for Blood of the City was given away.

Caveat: I don't think that Paizo should give away every cover image from their books, etc. However, I love when they put up artwork in a size that is usable for Desktop Wallpaper; or when they put up Desktop Wallpaper for a free download. It's like little occasional unbirthday presents!

Aaron, if you're on Facebook, you should search for Pathfinder Art. They share a lot of cool Pathfinder artwork on that page, including the cover art for Pirate's Honor.

Here's Damon's Pathfinder art on Facebook. The cover is posted there without the title and logo.

It should be said, though, that the version posted on Denman's Facebook page is a bit different than the one posted on the Pathfinder Art page. The latter includes what I think is the back cover of the book.

At any rate, Denman's a cool artist so liking his Facebook page is a must if you're into fantasy artwork. :)

So, how many of you can say that your GM for Skull and Shackles is a published author of a pirate novel? I can!

Not to brag, but... Ok, I am going to brag. Chris is my GM and my good friend. I am so proud of him right now. I can't wait for this to be released to the world.

Good to know, Heine Stick, thanks! I'll have to locate my facebook login info and go hunting.

Chris, I'll check out the link you posted as well, I prefer the full cover image as opposed to just the front. It makes a better desktop background.

Yes, and we still have to finish that adventure path! Running pirates is like herding cats... they chase booty like cats chase mice!!! A very fun AP, by the way. We definitely shifted toward Chaotic Good (Okay, maybe Chaotic Neutral, since the Boatswain's idea of discipline was slitting the offender's throat!) after the PC's got their own ship, but that was a good thing, IMHO.

Well, that's it, Chris. Vic likes you, so you're a made man.

Me, I still got to watch my back.

Thanks Vic! Glad you liked it. Hope everyone enjoys it... I had a lot of fun writing it. And don't worry Dave. I got your back. ;-)

Amazon is terrible with respect to their release date listings for our products. They'll probably update their date when they get their stock in a week or two.

Just finished here. Very good. Will be interesting to see discussion on it. Also very low magic.

Contributor

Glad to see people are enjoying it. For those of you still on the fence, there will be a sample chapter posted on the Web Fic page May 1st, and a four chapter "Prequel" story posted in the following weeks. Enjoy!

Chris,

Just finished the book and I thought it was great. I rank it on my top 3 Tales line books. I very much enjoyed the non-traditional heroine in Celeste and her interactions and evolution as a character felt very organic and not forced as I read it.

Hope to see more adventures with the crew of the Stargazer in the future be it another full novel or here on paizo.com with the free fiction.


I have yet to get it. Sadly, spring/summer in Montana is the worst time to buy books to read.. I mean.. you only get so much time for the outdoors (that isn't skiing/snowmobile/getting swallowed up by an avalanche)...

Still, I may get an ePub copy for my iPad to read while camping. Of course, it would be just my luck to get eaten by a grizzly while reading a swashbuckling pirate adventure...

I've run into that problem too! For me it's becoming, "This book is too big to hold in one hand on my 30 minute walk to work. I'll just read it on the iPod Touch." I have several Tales books that I have not opened the physical version of.

That's why I started my gamer lending library at the location where we meet. We have a growing shelf of sci/fi and fantasy fiction for folks to borrow. It has resulted in one other GM from the group subscribing to the Tales line.

Aha! I saw the reference to the 'Stargazer' prequel at the end of the book and had been looking all over for it. Thanks for clearing that up.

I just finished the book this weekend. It was a lot of fun! I enjoyed that it addressed some important life issues/ consequences without being "preachy" or feeling like the issues were shoe-horned in.

I lent it to a friend of mine who I think will enjoy the book!
I've been loaning out the Pathfinder Tales books quite a bit lately. It helps to know that I have digital copies, so if I never get the physical copy back, I can still read the book.

I'm almost finished, but I just have to say that given the super high quality of this piece of pure awesome, I expect to see the further adventures of the crew of Stargazer in print within the next year or there is something seriously not right with the world!

Qadira

I was looking for the next piece of Pathfinder Tales to read after "Queen of Thorns", and now, I think Iv'e found it :)

Hopefuly, this will be enough Tales for me until James Sutter or Liane Merciel come up with something new.

What a wonderful thing to say! Thank you, Flash! I guess I better get to work making the world "right".


Chris,

What a great book. I agree with Flash, I really want to see more stories with the crew of Stargazer.

I grabbed a digital copy of Scimitar Moon for my Kindle app so I can continue to read your piratey adventures. Too bad your other books aren't available from Paizo in .epub format; I really prefer my e-reader app to the Kindle format.

Fair winds and following seas (and all that stuff).

FYI, you can get all of my work in e-pub format from either Kobo or Barnes and Nobel. They both sell e-pubs. Alternatively, you can get the e-pub versions of the Scimitar Seas novels directly from the publisher, Dragon Moon press.

Fair winds indeed...I'll take all I can get!

All of his non-Pathfinder stuff, that is. Currently, Pathfinder Tales PDFs are available only at paizo.com, while Pathfinder Tales epubs are available at paizo.com and the iBookstore.

I just finished Chris A. Jackson's Scimitar Moon and now, even more than before, I am hoping he will pen more Pathfinder novels.

Scimitar Moon seemed like a weak young reader novel for tween girls at the beginning, but quickly showed it's true colors. It has pirates! Super exciting! Great villains! Cool heroes! I'm really looking forward to more adventures with the crew of Stargazer and now I know where to get the epubs!

In a broad sense, I agree with Vic Wertz on this. This novel sits in the top 4 Pathfinder Tales, along with Blood of the City, Plague of Shadows, and Death's Heretic. The actual ranking tends to shift based on my mood, but those four are consistently at the top.

Great to hear you enjoyed it, Jim! Read on! There's plenty to choose from. And rest assured, you will be seeing Torius and crew again!

Alright, so this book is definitely on my wishlist, and I have [shamefully] not read a single PF Tales book yet. Budget is beyond tight, and even the minute amount for this PDF or the book along with my August subscription is looking like it will take a planned effort in the next month or two. However, I can't really wait to know what exactly is detailed about naga mentality in this tale.

I am pleading for Chris Jackson to consider sending me an email so we can discuss privately what is revealed about naga mentality and culture in this book, while I eagerly await the whole story itself. I mean, pirates and nagas - who can resist that? I certainly wouldn't blame anyone who couldn't.

Not to spam, but a shameless exhibition:

Spoiler:
Rhiu'jhilan-Hoi is a Nagajoran city I made for an adventure I am putting together for free. For it, I am putting together some supplemental information, and that includes an Ecology of Nagas and Naga-Kin. I really like Ecologies, and I wrote 'Ecology of the Tengu' for Kobold Quarterly #14 along with James Jacobs. I want to be thorough, and your story is official PF mythos, so I can't really wait until I can purchase the book to know what we got added to the palette.

xidoraven(a)yahoo(dot)com

Please and thank you. Looking forward to the book, spoiled story or not. Pirates and nagas - it's like they were meant for each other, I guess. :P
-will

PS: Oh yeah, the art for the blog - most excellent.
