Heroic adventure awaits in The Dark Eye's campaign setting of Aventuria! The heart of Aventuria is in the Middlerealm, an empire nominally ruled by the young Empress Rohaja, but in reality control lies with the regional lords and ladies of the region. Years ago, a province of the Middlerealm (now known as the Shadowlands) was overcome by human servants of the dreaded archdemons, and the region remains ever vigilant for signs of the return of the armies of the Shadowlands. You'll also discover regions of Aventuria that are the home to orcs emboldened by their whale-god Swafnir, jungle lands in constant struggle against the threat of slavers and manhunters, the lush northern elven forests, and the harsly cold Far North, where only yetis, dark elves, and a barbaric tribe of humans dare to live out on the ice.
The Dark Eye derives its name from the most intriguing magical artifacts in Aventuria—the Dark Eyes. These rare and powerful magical items allow users to view far away places and glimpse scenes from the distant past. Creating such an artifact calls for very powerful magic and a sizable quantity of raw meteoritic iron. Few spellcasters have ever mastered the necessary enchantments. When completed successfully, the iron assumes the form of an orb or an eye.
The unique, time-tested game system of the The Dark Eye lets you tailor your experience to your group. Be it a fun, quick dungeon crawl, elaborate storytelling session, or immersive simulation game, the game rules allow for depth and detail, yet are still fast to learn. You can try out the system in the free Quick-Start Rules, which also includes a short beginning adventure.
By joining in the The Dark Eye Kickstarter Campaign you'll be able to contribute to the new chapter in the legacy of The Dark Eye, and get access to exciting campaign rewards. Pledge levels and rewards include digital copies of the Core Rules and Witch's Dance adventure, deluxe physical versions of The Dark Eye Core Rules, and more!

The Sixth World is many things, including a stunning series of case studies on the mechanisms of hate. There are some true experts out there, people who know that just walking up to someone or something you don’t like and throwing a solid punch is satisfying, but nowhere near as satisfying as causing destruction that runs deep and lasts forever. The Aurora Warrens of Denver hold a dark secret, as some people trusted to help its residents are instead giving full rein to their darkest impulses. Shadowruuners typically are not heroes riding in to save the day, but in this case the work they’re being offered gives them a chance to dig into these secrets, perhaps fix some of them, and maybe even bring a few people to justice—however they happen to define justice. With dark secrets, double-crosses, and plenty of nuyen flying around, Serrated Edge gives players plenty of chaos to keep up with while launching them into a series of adventures that will shake up the city of spies and maybe bring about a better future. Or curse it to worse. Serrated Edge is an adventure for use with Shadowrun, Fifth Edition.

For devil-blooded Jheraal, a veteran Hellknight investigator, even the harshest methods are justified if it means building a better world for her daughter.

The Pathfinder Society heads to the Gloomspires and concludes the "Faithless and Forgotten" campaign arc in the month's Pathfinder Society Scenarios!
Pathfinder Society agents head to the mist-shrouded and shifting Gloomspires in Pathfinder Society Scenario #7-19: The Labyrinth of Hungry Ghosts. Previously, a team was sent to explore the tomb of the legendary pirate Sevenfingers. Unfortunately, that team never returned. The spires have momentarily halted, allowing these new agents to brave the tomb's many dangers in hopes to rescue their allies.
Not all getaways need transpire in nigh-inaccessible locales like the Gloomspires, as the third and final installment in the "Faithless and Forgotten" campaign arc shows. In Pathfinder Society Scenario #7-18: The Infernal Inheritance tragedy has struck, and the Society's attention must turn to infiltrating a facility located in the heart of Ostenso, one of Cheliax's greatest ports. The Pathfinder Society agents must act quickly, as the distraction of a national holiday can provide the PCs the cover they need to get in, get the job done, and get out without drawing the attention of an entire city's guards.
Deduction! Secret Identities! Moonshine! Dinosaurs? You can have it all!
First, we have Booze Barons—a team-based deduction game set during the Prohibition era, each player is bootlegging a particular type of booze and secretly delivering it to speakeasies all over the city. Each time they make a delivery, they earn a coin, but also reveal information about the type of booze they are dispensing. Earn the most coin by exposing the competition in Booze Barons!
And up next, we have JurassAttack!. Where two players face-off in an epic, head-to-head dinosaur battle! Each of these prehistoric pugilists has their own special abilities, combo possibilities, and varying score values to add to the tide of battle!
This week we have two new rules-light roleplaying games for you to check out.
First up is DicePunk! It is a fast-paced, "rules light" roleplaying game designed by (and for) people who grew up on, eat, sleep, breathe, and speak movies. The DicePunk System spins cinematic stories that take place more or less in the "real" world and the present day. If you could imagine your RPG campaign as a movie directed by Quentin Tarantino, Robert Rodriguez, or the Coen Brothers, DicePunk is the game for you!
And second we have the OneDice: Fantasy Roleplaying Game! Set in a world of elves and dwarves, sorcerers and dragons, OneDice: Fantasy features all the rules you need to adventure in one of the three fantasy eras, including races, professions, five magic systems, an extensive bestiary, and a short adventure to get your campaign going. Play as a barbarian hero fighting evil necromancers, a dwarven cleric battling gnomish technology, or a trollish warrior saving the world from an army of invading demons—whatever your fantasy tastes, this is the game for you!
Take a look at a list of other RPGs we carry on Paizo.com!
Across the Inner Sea region, few things are as ubiquitous as faith and religion. However, among the myriad nations and cultures, worship and devotion isn't limited to only the area's most widely acknowledged deities. Pathfinder Campaign Setting: Inner Sea Faiths sheds light on 15 lesser-known deities who nonetheless offer great power to their followers, granting spiritual might to any characters willing to offer devotion.
Inside this book you'll find details about these gods' histories, dogmas, and practices, all designed to enrich your campaigns with divine lore, including:
In-depth articles about the Inner Sea region's more esoteric divinities, from Achaekek, god of divine punishment and patron of the deadly Red Mantis assassins, to Besmara, the lusty queen of pirates and tamer of the fierce beasts that dwell beneath the waves, to Milani, vehement enemy of tyranny and slavery, to Naderi, goddess of romantic tragedy and forbidden love.
Guidance on how to play an adventurer or create an NPC devoted to a particular god, including the clothing, texts, and holidays sacred to the faithful, as well as aphorisms common among their ranks.
Obediences and boons that can empower all worshipers of each divinity, especially those with levels in prestige classes devoted to their faith.
Details about each divinity's standing in the Great Beyond, as well as a look into the gods' personal extraplanar realms.

In the Varisian port city of Korvosa, the death of a monarch leads to chaos, and only the PCs can hope to save the city from its own darkest tendencies. As the rule of the young queen grows more and more draconian, it's up to a band of bold adventurers to stop the spread of tyranny before all of Korvosa is crushed beneath her iron fist.
In the Curse of the Crimson Throne, the heroes delve into the depth of urban adventure in order to stop riots, combat a plague, root out organized crime, and rescue political prisoners before escaping to the harsh badlands of the Storval Plateau, where only the friendship of the barbaric Shoanti and a weapon drawn from the heart of a gothic castle can give them the strength to return and depose the evil queen once and for all.
The Darkenfold is an ancient wood, filled with its own wild abandon and creatures of ill intent. Those who live there know that the trees and the soil hold memories of their past glory and do not forget the axes of men, orcs, dwarves, and goblins that have plundered them of their wealth and life. This Codex of Aihrde-The Darkenfold expansion for Castles & Crusades RPG explores the length and breadth of the Darkenfold, from the Perth Timberland in the north to the Downs in the south, from the famous town of Ends Meet where Otto runs the Cocklebur Inn and Tavern to Bootstraps where almost anything is for sale.
Whether your party is venturing into a maze of twisty passages or escaping from the creature that dragged them to the center of its distressingly bone-strewn lair, no Game Master wants to spend time drawing every narrow cave tunnel and dead end. Fortunately, with Twisted Caverns you don't have to! This line of gaming maps provides ready-to-use fantasy set pieces for the busy Game Master. Full of beautiful details, including a fungus-infested cave and a spiraling descent, this double-sided map makes the perfect setting for encounters in the dank and dark!
The knightly order known as the Glorious Reclamation continues its crusade against diabolic Cheliax, conquering the town of Kantaria, where the goddess Iomedae once ruled as a mortal. The villainous adventurers, now official agents of House Thrune, must retake the town, depriving the knights of a valuable holy site. Can the evil characters earn greater infamy and prestige by dealing the Glorious Reclamation a serious defeat in their most substantial territorial gain so far, or will the knights' rebellion continue unchecked across Cheliax?
First, we have the Lands of Porphyra Campaign Setting. Porphyra is a world that grew up without gods, dominated by the followers of the Elemental Lords who oppressed those who would not bow down... until a brave coalition of elves and orcs performed The Calling, and brought an amazing pantheon of gods and the myriad strange lands they loved to merge with the young world—and start a world-spanning war! Now, it is eight centuries since the NewGod Wars, and the 50-odd nations and regions of the Patchwork Planet of Porphyra seethe in uneasy truce, as the more than 80 races that call it home dream of peace—or war anew! Lands of Porphyra is the culmination of years of work by many talented artists and writers whose vision has come together to create a campaign world of dazzling complexity and awesome potential for your Pathfinder campaigns.
Second, Savage Worlds RPG—Necessary Evil: Breakout (Limited Edition). The villainous resistance of New York City was one of the last to hold out against the alien invasion. The evil vsori responded by placing the island of Manhattan beneath an unbreakable energy field. Trapped within, the city's toughest and most cunning super villains must fight for food, weapons, resource, and dominance. But, they`re not alone. Strange creatures swarm in the sewers and subways, powerful gangs rise and raid their rivals, The Black Hand controls a vast black market of scavenged goods, and rumors of a way out are nothing more than street gossip. Only the strong will survive, and only the most calculating will eventually...Breakout! Breakout is a prequel to the Necessary Evil setting.
And finally we have Savage Lairs Fantasy Forests. This Savage Worlds sourcebook presents a range of encounters all tailored to fit within a typical fantasy forest.
An easy-to-learn, tactical, sword-based, dungeon-crawling micro deck-building game, 100 Swords is played with a poker-sized deck of cards (and a friend).

Grab your gears, whack the monsters, and grab the treasure...with the power of SCIENCE! Featuring brand-new art by Phil Foglio (Girl Genius), Munchkin Steampunk brings the zaniness of Munchkin to the pseudo-Victorian steampunk era. Bully! Tea service not included (maybe)!
Today marks the passing of Gary Gygax, a person that many of us at Paizo had a chance to work with and meet in person over the years, and to whom we owe so much. Running a game for your friends, whether it's around the dining room table with dice, maps, and miniatures or over the Internet with video chat and virtual table tops with PDFs, is something that all of us can relate with. Today, March 4th, is a day of remembrance for one of our most beloved Game Masters, and we're making it easier on your pocketbook to be a GM by putting over 1500 products on sale.
