Runelords Rising!

Varisia has long survived in the footprint of the ancient nation of Thassilon, but now the powerful runelords who once ruled that realm are waking from their centuries-long slumber, hurtling this frontier nation—and the entire world—toward great danger. The latest manifestation of peril facing Varisia's newest group of heroes is a hideous plague that threatens to spill into the streets of Magnimar and spread to the other major cities of the region, transforming beggar and prince alike into slavering monsters. Which of the runelords might rise next, and are all of them equally dangerous? Could some of them even become the heroes' allies? And what is causing a series of strange visions and otherworldly invaders to haunt and harry the heroes?

This volume of Pathfinder Adventure Path continues the Return of the Runelords Adventure Path and includes:

  • "Runeplague," a Pathfinder adventure for 8th-level characters, by Richard Pett.
  • Details on the vile faith and horrific cults of Yamasoth, the Polymorph Plague, by Jason Keeley.
  • An exploration of the legends and true natures of magic pools around Golarion, by Eleanor Ferron.
  • A bestiary of monsters, including the artistic yet alien ashullian, a disturbing manifestation of grim emotion known as the misery siktempora, and the eerily silent kasthezvi, by Mike Kimmel, Andrew Mullen, Richard Pett, and Jeffrey Swank.

I think everyone is just focused on......other issues....
I for one am very excited about this adventure path :P


Pathfinder Campaign Setting, Companion, Roleplaying Game Subscriber

The only reason I am getting this AP is because... yeah 20th level.


I'm excited too Nighttree, but mostly for more Qlippoths. :)

Is Korvosa getting hit by a plague again?

Also: will this AP be going to Korvosa at some point?

Huh, would have thought this one would have been about Zutha.

Speaking of Zutha, Bhoston Jola Rould the pathfinder in expedition to find Gluttonous Tome mentioned in one of Council of Thieves articles, is it ever mentioned afterwards what happened to that expedition? As far as I know, Tome was discovered by non Pathfinders?

if Yamasoth shows up, I'll be glad. Any monstrous outsider that turns people into things is alright in my book.


Nightdrifter,

I'm assuming Korvosa will be left alone by this...but I could be wrong.

Corvus, I'm pretty sure having the Runelord of Wrath (or one of her projects) would be about par for this AP.

Cultists eager to transform people into monsters via a plague - could this be Lamashtu's plan for the Lost Coast region?

Polymorph Plague, also known as Yamasoth, is one of Alaznist most powerful allies... And I suppose he has no love for Lamashtu, as he is a qlippoth.

Yeah I think that this is more some of Yamasoth's doing rather than Lamashtu.

On nice, an article on a demon lord! Looks like a adherent of Urgoatha is involved, too!


Decius,

Qlippoth. There's a difference. But yeah not surprised the Pallid Princess has a follower involved in this...

Ah, right! Don't think we've had a write-up for one of them yet.


Not really since there's less Qlippoth and they tend to hate mortals anyway...

The guy in the cover? That's Runerlord Zutha. I don't think he's involved with Urgathoa.


Runelord of Gluttony, a horcrux-lich-type of guy, involved with the Patron Gawddess of Gluttony and undeath ... naaaaah. ;)

We had an article about qlippoth lords including a statblock for Yamasoth in Shattered Star part 4, Beyond the Doomsday Door
