Down in the Flood

As the adventurers work to track down the missing colonists, the trail leads to a nearby island. There, they discover the submerged ruins of a cathedral dedicated to a now-dead god; the site has become a lair of an ichthyic monster and its cunning minions. The adventurers must fight their way through flooded chambers and vicious monsters to rescue the kidnapped colonists and learn of a greater threat to the region—and to humanity as a whole.

This volume of Pathfinder Adventure Path continues the Ruins of Azlant Adventure Path and includes:

  • "The Flooded Cathedral," a Pathfinder adventure for 7th-level characters, by Mikko Kallio.
  • A double-sized article exploring the divine beings worshiped in ancient Azlant, by Adam Daigle.
  • An under-the-hood look at the ancient world’s marvelous clockwork creations, by Mikko Kallio.
  • A bestiary of terrifying monsters and fantastic creations, by John Compton, Kalervo Oikarinen, and David Schwartz.

ISBN-13: 978-1-60125-981-3

Does Sicva's symbol mean that on Golarion, it is commonplace to know what a virus looks like? Does that mean they have electron microscopes?

Will we be getting a blog post summarizing the deities of Azlant, much like was done for the Ancient Osiriani gods?

(At least, for those of us who will have to wait awhile to get this product…)

** spoiler omitted **

Please & thank you.

Huh? Pretty sure I listed all of them

Probably in Ancient Azlant.

Azlant was an incredibly advanced civilization, so it wouldn't surprise me at all if they did.

I think it more likely Sicva knew what a virus looked like, the Azlanti followers thought it was a mysterious rune.

How is "Aoinse" meant to be pronounced?

I'd pronounce it /EE-on-shuh/, but Aoinse would probably understand and respond to any of the following: /EEN-shuh/, /ee-ON-shuh/, /ee-ON-she/, /ee-ON-see/, or any variant pronunciations that replace /ee/ with /eye/.

I wanted to give her a unique name, and I looked for inspiration in Irish names like Saoirse, Aoibheann, and Aoife.

I hope that helps!

I love the pantheon article. That said I tend to love things about gods and stories, ever did, even before RPGs came into my life :-)

Achaekek in Azlant has a strong Rovagug's vibe to me. Maybe worshipping Rovagug was far too taboo at that time for it to be part of their core 20

It is amazing how the article about Amaznen made me think of Eloritu (SFRPG core 20 god of Magic, Secrets and Runes). His demise is curiously worded too ;-P

And because the PCs explore an Azlanti cathedral in the adventure, there's going to be tons of religious history and lore about a particular deity in the adventure itself.

How can I get this info without running into the adventure's spoilers (I am usually a player, not the GM) ?

Thanks, Mikko!

At least some of that information will likely end up in the Pathfinder wiki. But I guess the fastest way to get the info is to ask your GM to give a spoiler-free summary.

The most interesting question arising from the article for me is the relation between Erastil and Jaidi, since they seem to have mostly overlapping areas of interest.

Erastil is a widower... Could it be?


So what is the look at clockwork creations like? How common were they in Azlant and did they have anything better than a giant spring to power them?

Sorry, no.

I made sure not to illustrate a god who has been illustrated before so that all the pieces would be fresh and new.

I like how the new gods, in need of new art, happened to have names that placed them on the same page as older gods like Abadar and Desna, who already had art. Very convenient, that. :)

I love Aesocar, Amaznen, Jaidi and Ulon, in particular, but Acavna and Elion are also cool. Brigh kind of picks up where Amaznen left off, and Norgorber for Ulon, but Jaidi feels quite different than Erastil (who is as close to a 'god of agriculture' as exists in the current big 20), and Aesocar is quite different than Sarenrae (the new 'god of healing,' who is more like 'the sun goddess, who also heals').

I love that Ulon's priests, worshipping the god of conspiracies, were 'figuring it out,' and kind of unintentionally led to the downfall of their people.

I also think it's funny that Scal's tenets kind of set him up to take the blame for what happened, leading to his faith's propitious drop in popularity. Heh.

Great stuff. Very cool, and I could see making clerics of several of these gods, even if they would be clerics of mostly-forgotten 'niche' gods at best, less common than even followers of the Empyreal Lords, in the modern-day setting.

I like the gods filled in areas later held by others. There's a goddess of perfection, subbing in for an area that Irori will cover later. There's an undead goddess, Zura, covering for Urgathoa. There's no Norgorber yet, but Ulon's taking up the slack. There's a sun god who isn't Sarenrae, a protector-goddess who isn't Torag, etc. There's even a small hint of Cayden, as the carefree wanderer, more than the god of boozing it up, in Elion.

Interesting that some are clearly labeled as 'god' or 'goddess,' while Gozreh, Onos and Ulon are referred to by the gender-neutral 'deity.' (The text seems to refer to Gozreh only as male, on the other hand...)

Ah, so much new stuff! As someone who plays clerics more than anything else, an article like this is like a book full of archetypes, just for me. (But better, because picking a deity comes with no painful swaps, just cool new flavor and domain / favored weapon / alignment options.)

Thank you, Set! I'm really happy that you liked the article. It was a ton of fun to work on.

Hmmm. I'm late to the game, but does anyone know what the half-page splash on page 64 (opening of the Gods of Ancient Azlant) article is representing? I'm looking, but I don't recognize the iconography used there.

When I ordered that piece of art, I just gave very general instructions to the artist to allow them as much freedom of expression that they might want. I originally intended to make it a church of a specific deity, but I was concerned that the symbols wouldn't be in on time to send to the artist doing the half-page illustration and instead of risking symbols not matching, I just went with something reasonable and somewhat general.

It's pretty awesome art. I guess Old Azlant has some secrets left to be revealed, then. :)

Thanks!
