When no one sits upon the Lion Throne, all shall try! As a final act of vengeance, High Strategos Pythareus's agents release evidence that the entire Stavian family line may be illegitimate, and now every noble in Taldor is willing to risk civil war to stake a claim to the crown. Can the PCs discover the remains of the First Emperor's tomb and seek his blessing to prove Eutropia's fitness to rule? And if the spirit of Taldor's founder cannot answer their prayers, can they answer his?
This volume of Pathfinder Adventure Path continues the War for the Crown Adventure Path and includes:
"The Reaper's Right Hand," an extraplanar Pathfinder RPG adventure for 13th-level characters, by John Compton.
A gazetteer of the district of Sayashto, an upscale neighborhood in the infinite city of Axis, by John Compton.
A look at Thamir Gixx, the Silent Blade, the wicked halfling god of murderers and assassins, by Jason Keeley.
An overview of the major noble lines of Taldor, by Crystal Malarsky.
Five creatures born to the absolute law of the planar metropolis of Axis, including the high-minded impariut inevitable and the cosmic majesty of the edict dragon, by John Compton, Nathan King, and Greg A. Vaughan.
Legacy of Fire and Kingmaker both have one virtually 100% planar adventures. Strange Aeons and Hell's Rebels both have adventures that are 50% planar. Ironfang Invasion finale is largely planar, too. That's just off the top of my head. At some point there were even people complaining that dropping a demiplane or a pocket dimension in every AP gets long in the tooth.
I have to say that while edict dragon sounds like the name of a planar dragon breed, and it indeed comes from another plane, I am a bit sceptical about a true dragon in an AP, even more with it breaking the 5 dragons per "scept" tradition.
I'm hoping for it to be Axis' planar dragon, and that we are luck enough to get the Abbadom and Nirvana dragons in our way to PF2E.
