New Pathfinder Campaign Setting book now available!

Dust off your best game mastering hat—game changers are coming with the latest Pathfinder Campaign Setting book!

Book of the Damned, Codex of the Infinite Planes, Orbs of Dragonkind—these are more than just stardust and shadowstuff in physical form, and in Pathfinder Campaign Setting: Artifacts & Legends, you'll learn about some of the most notorious artifacts to ever fall into mortal hands! From making your campaign easier with the character-rebuilding Hourglass of Transfiguration, scouring the woods of Kyonin with the cruel weapon of the nascent demon lord Treerazer, or hiding the gruesome Bloodstones of Arazni from the lich they were named after, all of the artifacts in this book can be focal point of entire campaigns. Whether your place them in your campaign to search them out or destroy their power, items like the Bottle of the Bound, Saint Cuthbert's Mace, or the Dancing Hut of Baga Yaga can alter the course of a character's life—much more exciting that rat-killing in the tavern basement! Not all of these artifacts are good or evil (though some are certainly intelligent in their own right), but in the hands of some, an item like the Scepter of Ages or the Deck of Harrowed Tales can bring about interesting times indeed (and you'll be able to hand these items out at your game table with our Artifacts Item Cards)!

Saint Cuthbert, you say...that name sounds familiar...

1 person marked this as a favorite.

Now, that's a name I've not heard in a long time. A long time.

I'm curious to see what the Golarion version of Saint Cuthbert is like...and since I'm assuming he's not a god, which religion(s) consider him to be a saint.


I suspect that the name is freely usable because St. Cuthbert was a real guy.

Does this book by any chance contain that amazingly weird machine from DnD 2e? I forgot specifically the name of it, but it was a machine full of levers and pulleys and whatever that caused your head to grow bigger if you used it. The machine could do basically anything you wanted to as long as you could figure out how to operate it.


The Apparatus of Kwalish? No...but there's an oblique reference to it in one of the Skull & Shackles "rumors" on the back cover.

No not the Apparatus of Kwalish.

This thing was a HUGE machine about the size of a building. Inside it was bunch of levers and switches and a switchboard.

The book it came with (an official 2e book, don't remember name but I can probably look it up) came with a "configuration sheet" upon which the GM could write down combinations he had created for the machine itself. As far as I remember, though it was a long time since I read it, the rulebook didn't actually specify any of the things the machine could do, it was all up to the GM with some suggestions.

It was insanely powerful and activating it would cause effects stronger than those of a wish spell and anyone who used it for too long would star losing wisdom and gaining intelligence. (and their head grew bigger, I think there was a table for how much bigger it got)

I found it. The Machine of Lum the Mad:
