Taldor Endures!

The first—and at one point, largest—empire in Avistan after devastation of Earthfall, Taldor has stood for millennia, and though its neighboring nations snicker at its lavish parties and out-of-touch nobility, none dare challenge the mother empire's might! With 6 millennia of history spanning the breadth of a continent, Taldor is a land of long-buried secrets and ruins, partnered with modern cutthroat dramas and political action. Secrets and treasure abound across Taldor—many forgotten, but far more deliberately buried. Will you fight to preserve the glorious traditions of the past, or will you pave the way for a reformed Taldor to attain new heights?

Taldor is the dynamic setting for the War for the Crown Adventure Path, making this comprehensive guide to the nation's geography, politics, and history a perfect resource for that campaign, as well as for many Pathfinder Module adventures! Inside this book you'll find:

  • A thorough gazetteer of Taldor's major prefectures and provinces, including details on the reigning nobles of each and over 70 points of interest across the nation, from Antios's Crown and its endless royal necropolis to the militarized city of Zimar.
  • An overview of Taldor's government, foreign relationships, and society.
  • Nearly a dozen adventure sites tied to Taldor's past glories and modern decay, from ruined cities to lost valleys of the dead.
  • Nine new monsters perfectly adapted to life in Taldor, including the corrupting giniver, perfectly suited to hiding in plain sight, and testaments to noble excess such as the titanboar and the blood-bathing baetriov.

Pathfinder Campaign Setting: Taldor, The First Empire is intended for use with the Pathfinder campaign setting, but it can be easily adapted to any fantasy world.

Sweet! I love seeing more of Taldor. The first one was good but I REALLY want to learn more about this place. :)

Nice! I wonder if this one will have a single author too?


Awesome! One more place off my wish list! Hopefully I'll get to see everything else before I take a dirt nap.

Ok...

I'm buying this. Don't disappoint me!!!

:P


Awesome. Can't wait to learn more about Taldor.

I'm thinking of having a Taldoran nobleman as a future campaign villain. He's an imperialist/nationalist wants to take over the empire and restore it to it's former glory; principally by conquering Taldor's neighbors like Galt, Andoran, and especially Qadira. How many people in Taldor support his aims, how great is the scope of his organization, and what kind of magic power or strange allies does he have at his disposal?

Those are questions I still need to answer; but hopefully this book should help me understand Taldor a lot better.

I'm super curious as to the author(s) and which creative direction Taldor went.


It's good to see that Taldor is finally getting some attention in the campaign setting line. Be interesting to see just what the 'feel' of it is. I always thought it felt like a cross between the Holy Roman Empire and Byzantium.

Not surprised. Interesting to see how it turns out.


Interesting. Now all I need is a CS for Absalom and Kyonin and all my favorite lands would be covered in the line.

Glad to see the Taldor campaign setting book appearing. That covers all of the major Inner Sea nations from my floating list of places I thought most-needed gazetteer books. Looks like I'll have to come up with a new list of places I'd like to see / think need the coverage.


SO looking forward to this! Empires are a totally different adventure zone than a lot of areas we've seen, and long histories get my creative juices going.

Me too. This is the campaign setting book I've anticipated the most since the early days of Pathfinder. Great Christmas present. :)


Hells, yes! Taldor shall rise again!

It's about time that Taldor gets the recognition that it deserves. Those silly children in Andoran get a book before us? The shame!


Pathfinder Adventure Path Subscriber

Obviously, I caused this to happen by ordering the old one, thinking "Who knows when they'll get to doing a new one?"

*what's that, these are planned much more in advance than that? Psh*


Pathfinder Companion, Roleplaying Game Subscriber

Vhat?! Vhat is da meaning of dis?! Another Campaign Setting to purchase!

And what a grand book it was, TBC. Hope this one is up to the challenge!

I mostly wonder when they will update the cover art.

For those wondering who's writing this one:

Spoiler:
It's me, Wario!

And while I wanted very much to write the entire book, cover to cover, I didn't quite have the bandwidth in the allotted time, given a smattering of Pathfinder and Starfinder support material that was already on my plate. So the bestiary entries in this will be written by another author, but the bulk of the book is me.

Sorry I didn't have better news to reveal. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

So glad this is happening.

There are many paths to forgiveness. The book being awesome will do me. (So no worries there, I'm sure). :)

Hey Mark, where you able to settle the dispute between James and (I forgot the name of the developer here) about the desired path of Taldor between Commoner's taking up revolution or a group of nobles establishing a new movement of restoration? has that been decided or is it still in the air?

I'm not really sure what you're referring to, but the book is going to detail Taldor's history and present day. What happens in its future is largely up to the actions of PCs.

The Five King Mountains, Kyonin, and Realm of the Mammoth Lords would be interesting.

My alltime-favorite is Varisia.

But i agree about elf and dwarve nations being interesting.

Also Brevoy and Nidal need to be done.


I'd love to see books Brevoy, Galt, and Razmiran.

Mammoth Lords! Mammoth Lords! Mammoth Lords!!!

Hmm, I think Nidal is the only one of those I'd really be interested in a book on, but that's just me personally...

Okay, let's consider migrating the other book topic ideas to this wishlist thread or start a thread dedicated to voicing support for a particular subject. This should really be for Taldor talk. What else would you like to see in this book?

How about confirmation on how Taldor feels about Sarenrae? There has been conflicting information in the past.

Liberty's Edge

Probably because the country isn't a hivemind. No doubt some feel like A and others feel like B.


-Brevoy
-Druma

These are my first two choices for the not yet done books.

As for the Taldor book, any idea on the percentage of crunch vs flavour?

Bestiary entries? Prestige classes? Feats?

As for what I would like to see in this book...maybe info on the state of Taldor as a world power and its relationship to other countries? And something unexpected. :)
