The Worldwound

A century ago, the nation of Sarkoris was murdered. Today, the fallen nation is a horrific, post-apocalyptic nightmare cloven by a vast canyon that connects Golarion to the demon-haunted reaches of the Abyss. This rift is known as the Worldwound, and through it the demonic hordes pour forth, set on defiling the world of mortals and claiming it for their own. Though the demons have so far been held back at the borders by barbarians and crusaders alike, the region that was once Sarkoris remains a fiendish beachhead on the mortal realm. Worse, the Worldwound itself is slowly growing—and if something isn’t done to halt this blight, the demons it spawns might one day swallow all of Golarion!

Inside this book, you’ll find:

  • Ruined cities, such as the shattered capital city of Iz, the frozen city of Dyinglight, and the river city of Undarin.
  • An exhaustive examination of the strange and otherworldly hazards of this demon-ruled region.
  • Key historical sites such as the Circle of the Hierophants, the Shroud of Unicorns, and Threshold, the fortress where the Abyssal portal first opened.
  • Adventure sites ready for exploration, as well as locations like the holdout town of Gundrun, a safe harbor in a deadly land.
  • More than a dozen new monsters, including several new demons and two new monster templates, ensuring PCs will never lack for foes in this devastated realm!
The Worldwound is intended for use with the Pathfinder Roleplaying Game and Pathfinder campaign setting, but can easily be used in any fantasy game setting. In addition, The Worldwound is the setting for the demonslaying Wrath of the Righteous Adventure Path, making this book a perfect supplement for that campaign.

Written by James Jacobs, Jonathan H. Keith, Jason Nelson, Todd Stewart, and Tanith Tyrr.

Tingled my Adventure Bone!

*****

In anticipation of an upcoming campaign of the Wrath of the Righteous in which I am a player I picked this book up as a bit of an aid in immersing myself into the setting.

OMG!

I can only hope my GM takes us to many of the places within! I love all of these adventure hooks and points of interest. Everything from stone forests to fallen crusades, this book hints at all.

In reading it, the area has a wink and a nod to this having once been the Golarion Celtic analog so that makes me a wee bit sad that its been overtaken by the demons. Its a shame there is no comparable places in Golarion that take on that setting to allow players to design characters with an eye towards a Celtic archetype. However there are meant to be Sarkorian survivors and refugees, I suppose that's something.


Very evocative

*****

Read my full review on Of Dice and Pen.

The Worldwound is really quite an impressive book. The desolation and despair of the setting come across remarkably well, while at the same time, the little glimmers of hope that dot the region (a few hold-outs for the forces of good) keep the book from becoming too depressing in its subject matter. In many ways, travelling to the Worldwound is like travelling to the Abyss without leaving Golarion, so it presents a very, very different setting to what is just next door. Even the sky and the weather behave in different ways. It’s not an area of the world I’ve paid a lot of attention to in my gaming up to now, but after reading this book, I just may pay it a little more in the future.
