Reign of Winter AP: What do we know?


Reign of Winter

1 to 50 of 140 << first < prev | 1 | 2 | 3 | next > last >>

Pathfinder Adventure Path Subscriber

How much do we know about the Reign of Winter AP?

As far as I can tell, it has . . .
1. Baba Yaga
2. Some planet hopping
3. 1.5 or so issues in Irrisen.
4. The title of the final adventure is "Rasputin Must Die!"

Is there more information floating around that I can't find?

For some reason, this feels like it has the potential to be a really crazy, over the top, grand adventure, or at least I'm hoping.

Thanks.

I'd love to see the titles for the individual adventures. They were revealed at PaizoCon, but only the title for part 5 "Rasputin Must Die!" made it to the net. James has already spoiled the titles for the AP after this one, so ... :)

The chapter names are:

1. The Snows of Summer
2. The Shackled Hut
3. Maiden, Mother, Crone
4. The Frozen Stars
5. Rasputin Must Die!
6. The Witch Queen's Revenge

No clue what the season on Triaxus is going to be. I can see it being trapped in winter to keep the theme, but I could also see it being visited during the summer to try and capture some of its...."summer"...to bring back to fight off whatever is coming on Golarion.

A visit to Triaxus also means the possibility of Dragon-Kin. Which is going to thrill a lot of players.

Thank you, Mikaze!


Pathfinder Adventure Path Subscriber

Thank you!

Now does anyone know what the basic premise of the campaign is? Are the PCs fighting against Baba Yaga? For her? Or something entirely different? With The Demonblight Crusades, it's rather easy to get at least a general feel for what you're getting into. This one still could be anything.

I think it is safe to say it will be nippely cold.

It would be pretty disappointing otherwise.

I admit, we've been pretty coy about this adventure path.

I've been very excited about it and I'll talk to the other guys about how much we want to leak as far as details go. I will say that there are some strong old world "fairy tale" themes in a few of the adventures. Use that as you may.


Put the Flumph of Rovagug in it and you may have a buyer.

Not only is that inn some completely different product category, but there's no reason a flumph would serve Rovagug. They want to save the world, not destroy it, after all.

So, the one flumph traitor?

From what we can see in the names and what I heard at Gencon we know rasputin is in this and it might be the same one as in our history as baba yaga is meant to be the same one from Russian myth that can hop from plane to plane. We also know that the current ruler of Irrisen's time is almost up and her mom will be coming to take her away around the same time this adventure is starting. Also the catalog for 2012-2013 lists the witchwar legacy as a reference/part of this so whatever happened in there may be directly related to this.

Something for the flip-mat line?

Not sure if I want to root for Imrijka being in this one or saving her for the Worldwound AP, what with the possibilities of inquisitin' the inquisitors. >:)

I think I'd prefer to sit this one out. Irrisen sounds like I'd need to put on boots. Or at least some woolly socks.

Thanks, Adam. Hopefully, you can leak some more information soon. I'm liking the mention of old world fairy tale themes. Hopefully the word "grim" could be added in there. (And by "grim" I don't mean the TV show, more like the creepiness of Pan's Labrynth)

Here're a couple more teasers for now:

Fairly early on, the PCs get to test drive an artifact (and hold on to it.)

At least three of the adventures are taking place off the Inner Sea map. We've talked about all three before (in extremely varying degrees).

Each of the times the PCs visit somewhere not super-detailed in a previous book, there will be a large gazetteer of that particular region/location.


Will there be armoured polar bears? Or even better, armoured kamikaze penguins?

That sounds interesting. We know of Iobaria and Triaxus; i wonder what the third one is? Perhaps the First World, staying in the fairy tale theme?

Not that the first one is very difficult...

*grins and hands over a scarf* I made it myself. And remind Valeros that Irrisen vodka only make you feel warm, it doesn't actually heat you up.

...unless you set it on fire, obviously.

You're implying that I don't already have some for just such occasions.

Haven't all modern ninjas started keeping spare outfits for each color of the rainbow since the 80's?

Fairy tale themes = Yes. Planet hopping = skeptical. I always give Paizo the benefit of the doubt though.

From the 2012-2013 catalogue, it appears that Baba Yaga is late for her 100-year Golarion visit and Irrisen's unnatural winter is spreading. Further, it's implied that Elvanna will be the BBEG. Elvanna is Irrisen's current queen.
