The Worst in Others

Dark shadows haunt the trade city of Yanmass, spreading chaos even as the city's leaders debate which royal heir to support in the growing civil war. Their soldiers are vanishing, bandits attack without fear, and a mysterious plague of nightmares rattles the populace—are these troubles random, or part of a larger conspiracy? And what role do the mysterious Twilight Child and the cultlike following he has attracted play in the chaos?

This volume of Pathfinder Adventure Path continue the War for the Crown Adventure Path and includes:

  • "The Twilight Child," a Pathfinder adventure for 7th-level characters, by Ron Lundeen.
  • A gazetteer of the city of Yanmass, the caravan hub of northern Taldor catering to travelers from across two continents, by Ron Lundeen.
  • An ecology of the mysterious and bureaucratic servants of death known as psychopomps, by F. Wesley Schneider.
  • A thoughtful exploration of resurrection, the strange role it plays in the world of Golarion, and how the various gods react to this violation of the natural order, by Patchen Mortimer.
  • A collection of strange beasts that roam the Whistling Plains, from the thieving grassling to the explosive bloodplate burster, by Ron Lundeen, Andrew Mullen, Richard Pett, and David Schwartz.

A change of pace for good or ill

****( )

Once again a really good one, however it has far less diplomcy than the onthers, its more a sandbox investigation. This isn't nescerly a bad thing tho some players may find it dispoting, that said its still a great one, with some really fun enemys and neat concepts. It also has some great npcs. The support articles as always are great

Look, I'm not saying that this is because of daemons, but it is totally because of daemons.


It might also be something else Mal! ;)

Well, maybe, but then again, it could be daemons!

*Really wants daemons to play big role in one of the APs*


Mal,

I think that's the AP after this one...

You might very well think that, but I couldn't possibly comment.

Daemons being the main threat in... Return of the Runelords? ...Well, that would be a twist.

*Not sure how he would feel about that turn of events*

The twist: The Runelords ARE Daemons!


I meant the one after the Return of the Runelords...

If I ran my regular group through this campaign, I'm pretty sure the "Night of a Thousand Knives" would be their reward (subtle they ain't).

Is it just me, or is this missing a third of the product description.

They usually have more starting out, like descriptions of support articles and such.

Psychopomps, yay!


Well, what better enemies for daemons than those who shepherd souls to their last reward?

I think we'll worry about Batfleck in another thread.

But also YAY! for psychopomps! :D

Not really. Psychopomps protect souls. Daemons eat souls.

And win Oscars.


Well.. Sahkil were psychopomps weren't they? They are all family.


They were but now they just torture them kind of like Kytons do. For kicks.

But Daemon is correct, they do win Oscars.

I remember discussing the 4718 Countdown Clock thing with Jim when he was working on that book, and he said, "4718 is far enough off..." Boy, how time flies!

Bandits at level 7? Wonder how they'll make that interesting without absurdly high level bandits.

I know, I know! Should I say? No, I won't say.

But I wonder what you think would be absurdly high.

I was really sad because there isn't a "deity article" in the first three chapters of the AP, but an article about the psychopomps and an explanation on the effects of resurrection is surely a great choice.

Well... What about drake riding bandits? XD
