Dive into Adventure!

There's plenty of adventure hidden beneath the gentle tidal cycles and crashing waves of Golarion. Discover the rich ecologies and complex societies hidden in the briny depths of the oceans and seas. In this book you can learn more about merfolk nations, the dangerous sahuagin, peaceful aquatic humanoids, and the aquatic terrors that wage war against them. Dare deadly environments, explore strange underwater cities, and find lost treasures within these pages.

This book also provides a wealth of rules for underwater combat and ways for terrestrial adventurers to adapt to aquatic environs, including new archetypes, feats, and magic items. Dive in to underwater adventure!

Inside this book you'll find:

  • A thorough gazetteer of Golarion's five oceans that explores the various points of interest and conflicts between those who make these bodies of water their home.
  • A look at Golarion's seas and their inhabitants, as well as strange treasures that can be found within their depths.
  • An expansion of rules for underwater combat that clarifies those presented in the Pathfinder RPG Core Rulebook and introduces new challenges to consider.
  • Dozens of new archetypes, class features, feats, spells, and items both magical and mundane that players can use to prepare their characters for adventures beneath the waves.

Pathfinder Campaign Setting: Aquatic Adventures is intended for use with the Pathfinder campaign setting, but can be easily adapted to any fantasy world.

I wonder if merfolk will get to be on the cover art.

Will the naiad from B6 get a mention in this book? Will any water fey in general get mentioned?

No merfolk on the cover, but there is at least one merfolk illustration in the interior art. No naiad appearances as this book spends its time talking about bigger bodies of water than those live in.


Pathfinder Adventure Path Subscriber, Companion Subscriber

Well that answers both of those questions, thanks Mr. Daigle.

A naiad once told me, "yo momma so fat, she lives in the ocean."

:-(


Pathfinder Adventure Path Subscriber, Companion Subscriber

Well now that I think about it, naiads are found in streams, rivers, and waterfalls:)

Hopefully there will be more options to protect from pressure damage.


More spells with the water descriptor, please!

Yep - more non-ice water spells please for us tropical aquamancers :-)

Very excited about this book, I just hope we can get more at some point. 30 pages isn't very much considering that whole races and nations exist in the Oceans. Although to be fair I understand that detailing the underwater nations, cities, races, and cultures is similar to exploring the other continents. It's such a big topic!

I wouldn't have minded a 96 page or even hardcover version of this book considering the huge broadband it has to cover and the fact that it is the only Campaign Setting book coming out in the next 7 months.

Can we get some little previews, please? :-)

If it were a hardcover, it wouldn't be a Campaign Setting book anymore, though, and you'd be posting this on the next book in the line! It's probably a bit early for previews, though.

Inner Sea Gods and Inner Sea Races are hardback books in the Campaign Setting line.

Huh, didn't realize that.

The More You Know!


Hopefully there is some more Lake Encarthan lore for the upcoming Irongfang Invasion AP, as well as for those of us running Nirmathas based campaigns.

There's no bestiary chapter in this book. Sorry.

So we'll need to wait for Aquatic...uh...Worlds?


Pathfinder Adventure Path Subscriber, Companion Subscriber

"Aquatic Worlds" would make more sense for monster stats, if such a product existed for Pathfinder.

Silver Crusade

Pathfinder Adventure Path Subscriber, Campaign Setting, Companion Subscriber

Ruins of Azlant will likely have a ton of aquatic monsters, in any case.

Well it might have plenty of aboleth.

I really hope to see new discoveries for aquatic alchemists. 'Gills', 'Deepsea Mutogen' and 'Pill Extract', maybe?

An underwater tweak on bombs might be useful, since throwing stuff isn't as viable underwater. Some sort of pressurized valve that squirts the 'bomb' in a line (with 'splash' damage affecting those along the path, perhaps) might be a way to twist it up for an underwater alchemist (with the base damage being acid or electrical, instead of fire).

There are a few classes that could use a little thought as to how they'd operate underwater. Aquatic wizards could use something more thoughtful than 'waterproof spellbooks' (particularly those from aquatic races which might not even have 'books' or paper or any of that), and aquatic weapon styles focused around Piercing weapons like spears (most useful underwater, compared to the limited effects of Slashing or Bludgeoning weapons) for Fighters, etc. would seem a useful theme to cover.

Presumably, any race or individual capable of breathing underwater would be able to vocalize and produce verbal spell components, so that, at least, shouldn't generally be an issue, but there's plenty of other stuff that could use a think. (Do aquatic race barbarians or monks or clerics with the travel domain swim faster, for instance? What's the merfolk monk version of slow fall?)

Wow, that is disappointing hear:(

I'm not too disappointed. We'll still be getting new critters in each installment of the Ruins of Azlant AP.

Well I am not surprised that this book doesn't have info on lakes since it is focused on oceans and seas.

One can have Aquatic Adventures in lakes and rivers... I do wish Lake Encarthan was in this...perhaps it could get its own book? Or include it with other lakes like the Lake of Mists and Veils. A Lake book or rivers and lakes sounds great to me.

Still excited to see this one as well.

I too wish for a book on Lake Encarthan or a full adventure path.

If there's any connection at all to the Mordant Spire I'll definitely bite for this one.

You know what I wish they'd put in that I know they're not going to? A mythic path for aquatics. Think about it, becoming a mythic lord of the seas or being able to split the ocean. That would be amazing, but it's never going to happen.

Legendary Games is running another Mythic Mania event on Kickstarter by the end of the year which is projected to include material from the hardbacks that did not get done during the first campaign. Aquatic Adventures is projected to release before Wilderness and that book was specifically mentioned...


Not sure about this one. Will have to wait for more details.


Pathfinder Adventure Path Subscriber, Companion Subscriber

Still got another month before this one gets updated.


Pathfinder Adventure Path Subscriber Subscriber

Definitely interested in this one! Then I can see how many rules I broke while trying to run an improvised underwater chase near Thistletop. :)

A (thorough) gazetteer of all 5 oceans?

I am very intrigued. :-)

Nice Devilfish (B2 page 88) vs. Jirelle & Merisiel cover, by the way!


Pathfinder Adventure Path Subscriber, Companion Subscriber

Yeah nice cover.

I can't believe this one got updated days ago and I didn't notice.

I can't wait to find out more about Golarion's oceans/seas.

Scarab Sages

I hope this includes a clarification to the underwater rules, that creatures that live in the water don't take the penalties for doing blunt and/or slashing damage.

I always found it hilarious, that strictly by the rules, a dolphin takes penalties for attacking, because their attack is blunt. But a Cestus does not, because its piercing, despite it still being punching a fist through the water.

I agree and we've got you covered.


Pathfinder Adventure Path Subscriber, Companion Subscriber

I hope there will be some lower level means of protection from pressure damage under water. Also what types of creatures are immune to that kind of damage.


I do love the cover.

Dragon,

I'm assuming Deep Ones for starters...

Liberty's Edge

I also love the cover!

Music to my ears. I will not have to drill a hole in my stomach to drink today.

Congrats! I'm guessing that answers my unasked question of whether aquakineticists get their blast fixed for underwater use in this.

Strangely, though you asked your unasked question slightly incorrectly, you wound up being correct in a way you couldn't predict (you'll see what I mean when you have the book ;) ).

However, I think I'm on the record elsewhere on the forums that water blasts are clarified in here!


Pathfinder Adventure Path Subscriber, Companion Subscriber

So Mark you actually did the cover art?

Nope, I couldn't draw anything even 1% that cool. Look below the title.

Okay, I see, I just misunderstood what you meant when you got a cover credit.

Any chance that the underwater combat clarifications here are going to also make it into Ultimate Wilderness so they could go on the PRD?

It was my hope when outlining this book that the rules chapter would make it to the PRD. I'll be sure to shout that from the rooftops when that comes to pass.


Great cover art! I'm looking forward to this book.

I mostly like the cover, but the red is weirding me out, because it really shouldn't show up that well under water.

'S a magic cloak. Cloaks of Resistance also resist optical desaturation.


Pathfinder Adventure Path Subscriber, Companion Subscriber

It is clearly a magical cloak. Besides I am more interested what is the book then the color of a cloak on the cover.

Imagine how bright it is out of the water then......


I just realized that we've been talking about the Inner Sea for years but this is the first splat book set in the actual ocean!


Pathfinder Adventure Path Subscriber, Companion Subscriber

Yeah, it is about time that we got one.
