The Call of the Crypt!

The vaults of the dead lie scattered across the Inner Sea region, waiting for the intrepid and the foolhardy alike to explore them in search of treasures and secrets lost to the ages. From labyrinthine gilded catacombs to the submerged ruins of a forgotten nation or an arcane tower hewn from crystal, these monuments to the deceased are as filled with history and riches as they are cursed with peril and despair. Those daring enough to brave these tombs’ traps and monsters will find themselves wealthy beyond measure—or entombed with the dead for all eternity!

Presented within are six complete tombs, ready to be used as flavorful side quests or the centerpieces of entire adventures. Each one comes complete with a room-by-room breakdown, new monsters and magic items, and cunning traps and haunts sure to challenge any adventurer. Within this book, you’ll find:

  • The Cairn of Attai Horse-Speaker, the tomb of an ancient Nidalese horselord, now overrun by sinister fey.
  • The Clockwork Vault, a desert mausoleum constructed by a master inventor to pass his discoveries on to worthy descendants.
  • Everforge, a former dwarven temple housing a powerful holy relic, now besieged by cultists intent on stealing souls for their dark god.
  • The Golden Ossuary, the gilded bone house where some of the wealthiest adherents of the mercantile Prophecies of Kalistrade are laid to rest.
  • The Prismatic Lantern, an arcane siege engine powered by a self-contained demiplane, which holds the final resting place of the weapon’s creator.
  • The Tomb of the Necrophage, a flooded crypt in the hurricane-ravaged Sodden Lands, now home to a tribe of ruthless cannibals.
Pathfinder Campaign Setting: Tombs of Golarion is intended for use with the Pathfinder campaign setting, but can be easily adapted to any fantasy world.

Written by Scott Fernandez, Ron Lundeen, and Larry Wilhelm.
Cover Art by Maichol Quinto.

Thanks, liz. Has it been decided yet whether each of these will be fully mapped?

Will this more or less follow the format of Dungeons of Golarion? 6 tombs, 10 pages each?

Will there be more fully statted sample levels this time? Only two in Dungeons of Golarion was a bit disappointing.

Castles of the Inner Sea included a "level map" for each of the six locations.

I wouldn't mind devoting more space to fewer locations, but I suspect that 10 page articles is the sweet spot for their monthly publications.


Battle maps will follow suit?

Ruyan.

I agree. Six places, 10 pages apiece is good. I'm not arguing for increased page count, I'm arguing for different distribution within those 10 pages.

The Cairn of Attai Horse-Speaker and the Tomb of the Necrophage sound particularly interesting!


Pathfinder Adventure Path Subscriber, Companion Subscriber

An ancient tomb infested with fey and not undead, awesome!!!

The Prismatic Lantern sounds awesome especially if the place's creator is not an undead or evil outsider.


Pathfinder Adventure Path Subscriber, Campaign Setting, Cards, Companion, Maps, Modules, Pawns, Roleplaying Game Subscriber; Pathfinder Battles Case Subscriber; Pathfinder Comics Subscriber

Nice cover art, but I really would have loved to see a demi-lich rising up out of the tomb...you know...because.

;)


Looks like the campaign setting line is heading off to some of the most neglected corners of the Inner Sea: Nidal, Rahadoum (Jitska)?, Five Kings Mts?, Druma, Absalom?, Sodden Lands.

If you got the melee tactics pdf as well, I have a few questions for that in the product thread over there.

In addition to the great cover we have:

(Spoilered as these are essentially six complete dungeons and even the art might give something away)

Amiri:
Amiri fighting an Equine Bone Golem in the Cairn of Attai Horse-Speaker. It's a profile of the scene with her in mid leap about to bring her sword into the huge, equine shaped skeletal creature. Not bad.

Zadim:
Zadim fighting several flying clockwork automatons at the Clockwork Vault. He's balanced on a bridge made of slender metal bands and lots of air. Very dynamic and cool!

Harsk:
Harsk charging a duergar mounted on a green gigantic spider in Everforge. We're off to his right an lower looking towards the duergar he is charging who is also moving quickly into battle.

Seoni:
Seoni blasting a calikang in the Golden Ossuary. She's crouching and holding out her hand while the six armed thing looks as though it's about to either grab her or split he in two.

Sajan:
Sajan dodging a green/yellow energy beam from the Prismatic Orrery in the Prismatic Lantern. Pretty straight forward image, but being attacked by an orrery is definitely different.

and

Seelah:
Seelah is fighting waist deep in foul water against gruesome looking mudlords (they may be juju zombie brutes, but mudlord fits the overall image and location better) in the Tomb of the Necrophage. There is light coming through from a grated portal behind her and the mudlords have an almost undead appearance (hence my hedging to the juju zombies) to them that is really creepy.

So what are the creatures found in the fey infested Cairn of Attai Horse-Speaker?

Creatures in the Cairn of Attai Horse-Speaker:

advanced deathtrap ooze
equine bone golem
witchfire
kelpies
nereid
nuckelavee rogue
wight barbarian


A wight barbarian. That's definitely different. What's the difficulty of the tombs in general?

There is no specific CR given for each dungeon, but this is what I would consider challenging:

Cairn of Attai Horse-Speaker—CR 9 approx.
Clockwork Vault—CR 5 approx.
Everforge—CR 10 approx.
Golden Ossuary—CR 9 approx.
Prismatic Lantern—CR 12 approx.
Tomb of the Necrophage—CR 5 approx.


Ahh ok. I wonder how inspired this stuff was by reactions from that Medusa Tomb adventure in Taldor.

I ran my group through Tomb of the Iron Medusa as part of the campaign we were in right before our current one. It was fantastic! Great story and some deep role-playing opportunities were available.

None of these tombs feel like that one; they seem more built around the classic concept of a tomb dungeon than anything else. They have always been a popular trope of the game, so I doubt the response to Iron Tomb was responsible for this book.

I will say the response to Iron Tomb definitely wouldn't have hurt! :)

Are the tombs mapped? I might pick this up just for the giant siege engine tomb. That sounds like something my players will love.

Each tomb is a complete small dungeon with map, encounters, the works.

Just checking, do you mean like, each dungeon has rooms like N1-N8 and each room has a description, monsters and treasure listed?


It certainly does.... It's six flavourful, mapped, described and fully fleshed out tombs - complete with suggested plot hooks - add to that some well developed NPC protagonists and new creatures - I'm already planning on how I might insert some of these into my ongoing campaigns... And if I don't do that, I'm definitely going to run a series of Aspis Consortium funded tomb raids!!!

The format is a little different to a module or adventure path, but there are room numbers, descriptions, monsters and traps. There's not much treasure listed, though, other than a few specific items for flavour. I guess they leave the mundane treasure up to the GMs.

Liberty's Edge

Pathfinder Adventure Path Subscriber, Starfinder Adventure Path Subscriber

This sounds awesome. A bunch of ready-to-use mini-dungeons are perfect for me. I was way disappointed with Dungeons of Golarion only having two fully statted dungeons, so this sounds much better in comparison.

The lack of treasure is even good for me, since I like to tailor to my PCs.

The description of Anuriel Malaseer on page 42 lists "Advanced Bestiary 199" as a reference. What product is this, and is that where the 'platinum-clad' type comes from?


Pathfinder Adventure Path Subscriber, Companion Subscriber

The Advanced Bestiary is a 3rd party product that was updated to pathfinder by Green Ronin Publishing. It's actually a book of 100+ templates.
