A Campaign Fit For a Queen

The kings and queens of Korvosa have long ruled under the shadow of the Curse of the Crimson Throne—an infamous superstition claiming that no monarch of the city of Korvosa shall ever die of old age or produce an heir. Whether or not there is any truth to the legend of the curse, Korvosa's current king is but the latest victim to succumb to this foul legacy. Now, the metropolis teeters on the edge of anarchy, and it falls to a band of new heroes to save Korvosa from the greatest threat it has ever known! This hardcover compilation updates the fan-favorite campaign for use with the Pathfinder Roleplaying Game, including new and revised content and nearly 500 pages packed with mayhem, excitement, and adventure!

This hardcover edition of Curse of the Crimson Throne contains:

  • All six chapters of the original Adventure Path, expanded and updated for use with the Pathfinder Roleplaying Game.
  • An in-depth gazetteer of the city of Korvosa as it exists under the rule of its new queen.
  • An array of new rules options for characters, ranging from campaign traits to spells to magic items.
  • An expansive appendix with statistics, descriptions, backgrounds, and rules support for the 12 most important NPCs in the campaign.
  • A bestiary featuring nine monsters from the original Adventure Path making their debut under the Pathfinder Roleplaying Game rules.
  • Dozens of new illustrations, never-before-seen characters, location maps, extensive new encounter locations, and more!

ISBN-13: 978-1-60125-890-8

Pathfinder Society Roleplaying Guild Sanctioned Content
Curse of the Crimson Throne is sanctioned for use in Pathfinder Society Roleplaying Guild.

The cover illustration is great!

I'm just not a big fan of framework that boxes the image in.
It's something i don't like with the normal AP covers too, but on them we have the full body images to break the frames restrictions.

That said, i am looking forward to the new art pieces inside.

The only problem i have is the 30 or so Bucks needed for the shipping.. Which is why, tough i am more than willing to pay for the book, i will most likely not buy this, at least not as a preorder. Maybe i'll just wait till it gets translated in italian. Such a shame.
James i apreciate honesty and disclosure more than an immaculate production record. So thanks for the insight!

Edit: just Tried to sidecart it.. And the shipping became 0.. Does this mean i get a discounted shipping or the 30$ will just be added to the other shipping fees?

Scarab Sages

Shipping is always zero in the sidecart, because it can't calculate the actual shipping cost until it know what all is shipping.

Ah. Ok.. still... Can't wait for this!

I completely agree with Davalaus being a vivisectionist alchemist.

However I always picture Sial more as an inquisitor or maybe a warpriest.

According to James Jacobs on the AP seminars at Paizocon it's actually

Spoiler:
Unchained summoner, with the kyton eidolon included in the adventure

Tonlim,

I'm aware of that since I asked James Jacobs that a while back.

I wonder what level it ends at, whether it's 16 like the original or if they're able to get another level on the fast track. :-)


Probably do the full 20, I think captain. But I could be wrong.


Pathfinder Adventure Path Subscriber, Starfinder Adventure Path, Starfinder Roleplaying Game Subscriber

I doubt that, Runelords only goes to 17-18, I can't imagine this would top that. :-)

Scarab Sages

Wrath of the Righteous is the only one to ever go all the way to 20 and that was a special case. The AP developers have been very open about why they don't want to take APs to level 20. In addition, on this rewrite, they've been pretty descriptive about what they're removing and what they're adding, and it doesn't seem like there'd be a net gain of XP of more than a level, if that.


Alright! I concede! 16 it is!

It's about the same as the Runelords hardcover. Fast track, ends at about 17th level or thereabouts.

I remember the original player's guide had a map of Varisia, but I like the parchment style better for player handouts. Do you think the Varisia player's companion pdf could be updated to have its central map included as its own pdf, like in People of the Sands or Bastards of Golarion?

Not really... we don't update PDFs/products in this way.

I highly recommend the Shattered Star Map Folio, the map of Varisia is also in that. :-)

And it is GLORIOUS.


So we've established that: 1) It ends at 17th level and 2) James Jacobs enjoys crushing my dreams. :p ;)

I like my dreams, Four. :p That's why I have them. If only because the dull pounding on my brain from this reality annoys the hell out of me.

Also I look forward to seeing how Chained Spirit and Danse Macabre turn out.

Thanks for the reply. And thanks to Captain Yesterday for pointing out I have a version in the SS poster map bundle.

Will Curse of the Crimson Throne - Anniversary Edition be available at Gencon 2016?

Is there any indication when it might ship to those who pre-ordered it? Before or after Gencon?

Given that Vol 1 of Strange Eons is not going to be ready for release at Gencon this year, I'm not as certain as I might have once been that Curse of the Crimson Throne will be there.


I can't believe I hadn't noticed this up until now. I've been hoping more old Adventure Paths would get updated. I like the cover art. Those guards look awesome.

It won't be shipping by Gencon, the street date is Sept 28 so my guess is shipping is somewhere around the 14th of September, assuming no delays, which happen from time to time. :-)

Well, the PDF is generally only available 30 days after it ships, which would put the release to pre-orders somewhere near the end of August.

But given that the additional profit from direct sales on the Gencon floor of such a book would provide Paizo with 30,000-40,000 Good Reasons Why this book should be available at Indy on August 4, I'm feeling somewhat sanguine about its presence there, just the same.

I can think of even more reasons why doing so would be bad. Namely the subscribers and everyone else who preordered having to wait an extra 2 months and not being happy in the slightest with that arrangement.

If it got bumped up early for everyone then cool though.

I can confirm that the street date for the PDF version is the street date of the hardcover itself. This book will not be arriving in time for Gen Con, and is slated for release in September.

GenCon 2017 is over a year away, so you have plenty of time.


Mm good point. I guess I can save up for 2017 starting now...

Now for the Eternal Question: Do I buy it on Amazon for $50 and free shipping, or buy it from Paizo for $60 and another $12 shipping. Hey, not trying to be disloyal or anything, but $22 bucks is $22 bucks. So the question is whether the PDF is worth $22 when you already own a hardcover.
Plus Amazon will likely have it closer to $40 by the release date.

Well, I think it usually comes out on Amazon a few months after it comes out on Paizo, so that probably depends how quickly you want it.

Will there be an interactive maps for this (like Runelords?)

That pretty much depends on whether you are going to run game online or want to print out handouts from the pdf

I'm fairly certain (as in 100%) Paizo will tell you to go with what works best for you, and I sincerely doubt disloyalty is a word they'd use for anyone buying their products.
