Down with Thrune!

It's the one hundredth volume of the Pathfinder Adventure Path! Too long has the diabolic Lord-Mayor Barzillai Thrune inflicted cruelties and increasingly oppressive laws on his citizens. The heroes of the beleaguered city of Kintargo finally strike back at the sources of corruption, as their rebellion mobilizes in the streets. Rescuing old heroes from forgotten prison cells, reclaiming control of key locations, and performing an ancient song that was used years ago to protect the city from Hell's agents are but the preamble for the decisive battle—an assault on the enormous Temple of Asmodeus!

This volume of Pathfinder Adventure Path continues the Hell's Rebels Adventure Path and includes:

  • "A Song of Silver," a Pathfinder adventure for 10th-level characters, by James Jacobs.
  • A study of the former faith of the dead god Aroden, by Erik Mona.
  • A retrospective collection of NPCs for each of the previous Adventure Paths, by various authors.
  • A descent into evil in the Pathfinder's Journal, by Stephanie Lorée.
  • Four exciting new monsters, by Adam Daigle and James Jacobs.
  • A poster map depicting a key battlefield within the adventure.

ISBN: 978-1-60125-795-6

Note: Pathfinder Adventure Path #100: A Song of Silver is an extra-large volume, totalling 128-pages rather than the standard 96-page format.

The best Paizo AP?

*****

*DISCLAIMER*: This is a single review for all adventures in this AP.
Hell’s Rebels is the best Paizo Adventure Path. Of all the AP, it is the one that’s most coherent, approachable and GM-friendly. This review applies to all 6 books because their quality and style are so consistent that you don’t even notice the fact that they were written by 6 different authors.

Let me quickly list some of the most important things which Hell’s Rebels gets right:

1. It has a clear, believable and complex plot which goes from point A to point B to point C while at the same time allowing for multitude of side treks, optional quests and player-driven initiatives.
2. It goes full on Golarion. It touches upon core themes of the setting and is heavily nested in its history. It provides the much-anticipated opportunity to punch one of the biggest evils of the setting in the face. One warning: you can’t just lift HR and drop it into other settings without massive amounts of work.
3. The BBEG is front and center, introduced in adventure 1, encountered and fought against several times across the campaign. He’s evil, callous, quirky, nasty, brutal, amoral and good at being bad. He’s right up there with Ileosa from CotCT.
4. The campaign starts in one city and mostly stays there, with some small side-treks and one bigger detour which, fortunately, is also urban.
5. There is a cadre of sympathetic, recurring allied NPCs to play second fiddles to the PCs. There are also enemies whom you can interact in ways other than roll for initiative. The RP opportunities are plenty.
6. The cast of both allies and opponents is diverse in every sense of that word.
7. The players get opportunity to discover some of the setting’s secrets and, to a limited yet satisfying degree, reshape it without causing a Realm-Shattering Event.
8. The ending is epic to the core and fitting for a campaign of this scale and magnitude.
9. Episode 4 is a special issue with extra page count, longer adventure, more support material, an excellent article on Aroden and much, much more!
10. I love the blue colour theme for this AP AND Wayne Reynolds did the cover art. Double victory!

100 Issues and Going Strong! Bring on 200!

*****

The one hundredth issue of Pathfinder is an over-sized issue packed with a fun installment of the Hell's Rebels adventure path written by none other than James Jacobs. If you've ever wanted to know what insidious beasts lie inside of an Asmodean temple, this is your chance to find out!

What makes this issue shine beyond the adventure is the density of the support articles. Publisher Erik Mona takes time out of his busy schedule to give us more information on the dead god Aroden, and a bevy of Paizo writers and freelancers bring us new NPCs for use in every adventure path!

Even if you're not running Hell's Rebels, this is worth picking up for the support articles alone. Here's to a splendid 100 issues and hoping for one hundred more!

Thanks, Paizo!


We Won...?

*****

If you have been playing your GM cards right and your harrow face has been strong this is the volume where all your carefully built plans come to fruition.

You get to set out your cards with an evil grin and listen to your players say, "Huh," in the absolute best way possible. (To be honest that revelation comes at the end of the previous volume and only becomes more pronounced by their 'victory' in Song of Silver.)

Of all the various Adventure Path volumes I have read The Song of Silver only narrowly beats out Dance of the Damned for the best of them all.

Not only do you have a top-notch epic battle between the Silver Ravens and their long time enemy the twisted Barzillai Thrune but plot lines that have only been briefly mentioned to or alluded to in previous volumes come to light.

Villains that the group weren't even sure were their enemies are revealed. Heroes thought to have been lost are saved by the PCs, some of whom used to idolize them.

Not only is it a top notch Adventure Path book but the volume is absolutely filled with other great content.

In fact, I would recommend this volume to all GMs considering running ANY adventure path for the NPC catalog alone.

Top notch art and excellent writing.

Enjoy!


It's not even fair!

*****

In addition to providing a stunning adventure (featuring a highly satisfactory throwdown with the campaign's Big Bad), this volume is packed to the gills with awesome extras.

And why not? As an oversized volume, all the stops were pulled out.

Of note: If you like tying your campaigns off before things like 6th level spells, this offers an acceptable point to conclude an abridged version of the campaign.

In keeping with Hell's Rebels as a whole, this bad boy delivers on all levels.


An epic fourth leg to an urban sandbox AP

*****

(Preliminary note: Hell's Rebels is a series of urban sandbox adventures. Like most sandbox adventures, these adventures especially benefit from a DM who is willing (i) to tailor the adventure to the motivations and goals of the particular party, (ii) to allow players to be proactive, and to shape the adventure around their decisions, and (iii) to allow the party to try (and succeed at) dealing with problems in unexpected ways. So while these adventures run fine "out of the box", they work best with experienced and flexible DMs who are willing to put in a little extra work.)

We haven't finished A Song of Silver yet, so this review is largely based on my impressions from reading through the adventure. So far this has been a lot of fun, and I expect it to be among the best legs to date, second only to The Dance of the Damned. It wraps up some loose ends, allows the party to finally let loose on the authorities, and has a number of opportunities for a "special-ops"-style party to shine. There aren't quite as many role-playing opportunities in this leg of the AP as there were in the previous three legs. But the Temple of Asmodeus looks to have some pretty epic encounters, ones I expect my players will remember for a long time.

Some of the things the players enjoyed, and some expected highlights:

  • --Repelling the Thrunish Counterstrike on the player's base
  • --Infiltrating Kintargo Keep
  • --The epic battle in the main hall of the Temple of Asmodeus
  • --The frighteningly difficult task of Exorcising the Devil's Bells

Some tweaks we used/are planning to use to strengthen the narrative:

  • --Each of the missions in the first half of this AP are tied to the liberation of a part of the city. But in some cases there isn't much, narratively-speaking, to tie the missions and liberations together. A few tweaks to make the connection a bit tighter:
  • --Adding a written contract between Natsiel and Barzillai to Natsiel's possessions, and having the public release of these documents (demonstrating Barzillai's willingness to let Natsiel prey on the people of Jarvis End) lead the people of Jarvis End to rise up and ally with Silver Ravens.
  • --Having Tiarise and her inquisitor troops be in explicit control of The Greens (employing martial law to keep the population of The Greens compliant), so that once they're defeated, the populace will gladly join the Silver Ravens.
  • --Adding a written contract between Hei-Fen and Barzillai to Hei-Fen's possessions, and having the public release of these documents (demonstrating Barzillai's willingness to let the skinsaw cultists prey on the people of Villegre) lead the people of Villegre to rise up and ally with Silver Ravens.

Overall assessment: Another great leg of this AP, up there with the very best AP 4th legs (like The End of Eternity and The Wake of the Watcher). 5 stars.
