Was thinking of reading through the Pathfinder Tales, but was curious if there's any specific order I should read them?

Contributor

1 person marked this as a favorite.

The novels thus far are all written in more-or-less the literary "present." The only ones that go in order are Prince of Wolves and Master of Devils, which are volumes 1 and 2 in the Varian and Radovan series. The next in that series is Queen of Thorns which I believe comes out next fall.

The individual stories have different chronologies, a couple of which are set in the past. There's a thread detailing the chronology of the individual tales that should give you the full list excepting a few newer tales.

Much appreciated. I'll have to figure out where to start then on 'em.

Old Pathfinder Tales thread.... RISE

I think Blood of the City preceeds Worldwound Gambit.

Actually, I believe Blood of the City takes place after Worldwound Gambit...

That's right.

The continuity between the two books is so slim that it doesn't much matter. They can be read in either order.

The Ironroot Deception before or after Blood of the City? :)

Ah, ok. I thought Hendregan's forgotten mission in Blood of the city, referred to his lava walking in Worldwound.

Oh, and the last line of Blood of the City just sent chills down my spine when I read it.

The clues to this unimportant mystery are found in the last chapter of Worldwound.

Glad you dug the last line. That's what I was going for.

I just restarted my Tales Subscription after a financial lapse. I am very much looking forward to reading Blood of the city now. I have been waffling about what to read next. Now I'll start to reread Worldwound Gambit when I get home.
