If you grew up on tales of red planets, strange creatures from Venus, wonders hidden beneath thick clouds, or entities drifting in the blackness of space, then your Pathfinder campaign is about to get a jolt from the skies!

Pathfinder Campaign Setting: Distant Worlds has been years in the making. Whether we first hinted at what lay beyond the confines of Golarion's skies with the Sovyrian gates used by the elves or an obsessed Osirian pharaoh's research in "Entombed with the Pharaohs", fans have been clamoring for more material on the planets of Golarion's solar system. The first appearance of a solar system gazetteer back in Pathfinder #14 only whetted appetites for more on planets like Aucturn or Eox. Now that I finally have Distant Worlds in my hot little hands, it's time to train our telescopes on these planets!

Every planet in Distant Worlds has at least a page devoted to it (even the Sun): adventuring hooks, notable sites, what an adventurer has to worry about when going there. The machine entities of sun-scorched Aballon dwell in the Cities of the First Ones, defending those that would plunder the ruins for its secrets. The matriarchal lashunta of green Castrovel ride on their lizard-like steeds in the city-state of Qabarat, trading in both goods and unusual knowledge. On red Akiton, the towering four-armed Shobhads raid settlements of Ysoki rat-men or trading groups of the red-skinned lizardfolk of the deep desert.

Beyond the warmer planets of the inner system, things take a turn for the strange. Need to sail between the planets—go to Skydock on the planet Verces. Delicate ecosystems exist in the asteroid belt knows as the Diaspora, mostly populated by the thin, bird-like sarcesians, avoiding such puzzles like the labrynthine Vacant Halls or the Wailing Stone. Travelers of the stars would do well to avoid the Eoxian corpse ships, piloted by the unnerving and amoral bone sages, fear the poisonous gases of Liavara, and steer clear of the cancerous moon of Thyst.

Constellations, comets, portals, spells, vessels, and new creatures all await beyond the stars in Distant Worlds! Check out all of our Pathfinder Campaign Setting books right here, and don't forget, subscribers receive a free PDF with their print edition!

I enjoyed the book, and it contained some very interesting material, but I was rather disappointed that there was no statistic info given for the lashunta. They sound distinctly different from any other race described, and I would have liked to at least see some racial stats on them.


WANT!


Can't wait to get my hands into this and plan a campaign around it!

Everyone should buy this book.

Well with the Advanced races book you will be able to create your own version of the Lashunta.

For me the males would have +2Str(or Con) +2Int -2Cha

While the females would have +2Int +2Cha

Also, though there wasn't room in this particular book, you will be seeing official stats for the Lashunta soon...


I wish to know which book I should get... this one or the pirates one

This is very good news indeed.

The correct answer is "Yes."

(But the Pirate one is more likely to be useful in the short term.)

If I wasn't already sold on this book, that line right there would've done it.

aye it might.. but neither has a good review up so.... the answer may be yes( yes to which I dunno, did you mean this one or pirates) and it might be this one depending on how much info is on each palnet and all over the pirate book.... which also has no decent review and Im curious

So far what is everyone's impression been on the various worlds?

Aballon - My favorite world! So many ideas for adventures. While all the planets gave me a few ideas, I had dozens of ideas for this one.

Diaspora - Dyson and integral trees, Silent Running, and other various eco sci-fi ideas popped into my head reading through this one.

Wasn't really inspired by the rest. But the atudara gave me a couple of ideas for fun. The monsters were pretty cool, especially the ora. I also want to explore a connection between the Dominion of the Black and Ancient Osirion...
