New Pathfinder Tales novel now available!

In previous Pathfinder Tales novels, we've survived horrors in Ustalav, the icy grip of Irrisen, and ancient shadow curses. In our newest tale, The Worldwound Gambit, we journey to one of Golarion's most notorious realms, the festering canyons known as the Worldwound!

When the god Aroden died over one hundred years ago, reality ripped asunder in the barbaric kingdom of Sarkoris, pouring out demonic forces from the Abyss itself. Creeping over the devastated landscape like cancer, the Worldwound has slowly expanded, held in check only by the wardstones maintained by the Mendevian crusade. A bit of chaos can be a good thing for a con artist like Gad, but even schemers have their limits.

Handpicking a team of like-minded rapscallions, Gad ventures into enemy territory to attempt the biggest hustle of his career. Betrayal and despair dog them at ever step of the way as they head toward the creature at the heart of the latest raids: the Shimmering Putrescence, Yath. With more than just his life at stake, Gad knows that pulling off the job is only part of the problem—getting himself and his crew out alive might be a far larger challenge.

Written by noted game designer Robin D. Laws, the print edition of The Worldwound Gambit is available now, with the PDF and ePub versions available May 18. Check out this novel as well as the rest of our Pathfinder Tales fiction!

I don't get to use it often, so I was happy to squeeze it in there. :D

Does that mean Julia Roberts is the halfling or the stab-happy noble scion?

I'm still digesting the PDF (in the mid 200's)

I'm not sure I like the present tense style of writing. Not read that style before except in David Drake's But Loyal to His Own and there it was just for a page or two.

I do think the Worldwound is running neck and neck with the Mournland for "Places Matt would least like to be."

Now that I have accustomed myself to the present tense writing style, I like it. It works very well for the story, especially since everything going on seems to hang by a thread. I'm actually worried about different characters at different points in the story. I'm not sure why or how the present tense writing accentuates that for me, but it does.

You're not kidding. For me, the Worldwound is up there with the Space Jockey's ship from Alien and the Hadley's Hope colony on LV-426 as "places to avoid at all costs." At times as I am reading I am strongly reminded of some of the Aliens and Aliens vs. Predator books by Stephanie Perry and others.
