The latest Pathfinder Tales novel has arrived!

When the great calamity known as Earthfall plunged the world of Golarion into darkness, only then was the twisted god Zon-Kuthon able to return. The realm of Nidal is where his pale hand first opened in aid, and the location of our latest Pathfinder Tales novel!

In Nightglass, young Isiem has been called to serve the Midnight Lord. With skill beyond his peers, Isiem has learned to summon the shadows that are the hallmark of Nidal's servitude to Zon-Kuthon, but such power comes with a terrible price. Less skilled peers vanish in the middle of the night, or are caught by the Joyful Things trying to flee the Dusk Hall, home of the shadowcallers and where Isiem learns his craft. His first assignment sends him to the aid of Nidal's ally, the devil-worshiping nation of Cheliax, but even the years of training could not suppress the questions that arose. For he was not called to protect or aid his countrymen or even the armies of Cheliax, but to exterminate the black-winged strix that lurked in the mountains, and now he wonders who the true monsters are—and if he is one of them...

Not in Nidal!

...unless they want to be real dead heroes.

(I think Dave has some real heroes forthcoming this fall, though.)

Isiem is a real hero. He couldn't help where he was born, or that the oppressive government in place there forced him to master tools of evil, but as he matures, he defines himself independently from simply being a shadowcaller and native of Nidal. I think folks will find him to be a very heroic character by the book's end, especially considering the obstacles he has to overcome in order to redeem himself for past evils.

I agree, Isiem is a real hero.

He's a DARK hero with a DARK past and I for one am tired of it. It seems that the world of Pathfinder is rife with NOTHING but antiheroes, scoundrels, thieves, cutthroats, bounty hunters, and the like. It isn't hard to put a party of six HEROES together on a quest to save a village from a raiding party consisting of Goblins, Orcs, Ogres, Trolls, and a Giant or two and it's CERTAINLY not hard to progress from that to freeing a town from a sinister cult, rescuing a princess from a Red Dragon, or saving all of Golarion from being ravaged by an impending disaster!

Truth.

PCs pull this off all the time, why not characters in novels?

I've said it before but it's worth saying again, nobody complains about Roy Greenhilt.
