Intrigue and politics?! Quite a change of pace!


Interesting....


So we get some Ultimate Intrigue on top of the finale of the Runelords trilogy.

Demigod on Shadow Plane? Really hoping its one of Kyton Demagogues, but are there other demigods on shadow plane that seem more likely?

I'm wondering if the final sentence of the current description is referring to Alaznist ...

I have high hopes we'll see what Laori Vaus has been up to on the Shadow Plane.

Laori? I thought Sial was there.

I'm sure the "storied nation" are the Lands of the Linnorm Kings, the "time-locked Thassilonian city" is Xin-Cyrusian and the runelord is Xanderghul.

I expect the time locked city refers to the Crystilan https://pathfinderwiki.com/wiki/Crystilan. Happens to fall into Envy's domain... Belimarius would make a good final BBEG for the second to last book. I believe she is said to be lv 18 or 19.


Could be the BBEG has a nasty knife-twist for ol' Zon-Kuthon in Nidal.

Is the adventure title a reference to a Star Trek episode?

Not intentionally, but yeah, it's got a similar construction. Doesn't really offer a spoiler or hint into the adventure itself though.


Pathfinder Adventure Path Subscriber

Cheers!


*was going to make a comment about that episode...but decided to not do it*

Also glad we're getting a city that I've never visited! :)

If he became the Curate, he would be back in the Star Tower.


Right...but from what I understand, Laori, decides to join her people and follow Callistra.

So, PCs prevent the return of Xanderghul the master of Illusion and they end up on the Shadow Plane. How appropriate :-P


Pathfinder Adventure Path Subscriber

Crud. It's gotta be Crystilan. And I've been planning on using that in my Rise of the Runelords game. My PCs are going to have to carve their way into Crystilan with a runeforged weapon opposed to abjuration to retrieve some ethillion from a laboratory in there, and it could easily happen in the next 1 or 2 sessions.

Now there's going to be a whole bunch of new world lore to tap-dance around that I won't even know anything about until November at the earliest. That makes twice this month I've had to rejigger major plotlines to conform to published lore (the other was the update on Nocticula's goals in Planar Adventures).

Sigh. Such are the risks of doing homebrew in a setting with ongoing updates. Maybe I'll luck out and they'll go a different direction, at least long enough to get my hands on this issue ...
