Over the past year, I have polled people in person and through the Pathfinder Society blog about which rarely-visited locations they would like to see more. This month we're returning to locations left largely untouched over the past four years or more, and I couldn't be more excited about the destinations!
The first release is Pathfinder Society Scenario #6-08: The Segang Expedition, which takes Pathfinders to Jalmeray for the first time in nearly five years (not counting the excellent Cult of the Ebon Destroyers! Rumors of a new shrine are too promising to pass up, and the Society quickly assembles a team to check it out. However, the expensive campaigns in Varisia and Mendev have taken their toll, and the PCs learn that they are accompanying several wealthy patrons who have their own agendas in the jungle. Author Benjamin Bruck has done an excellent job in spinning a compelling story with engaging NPCs, and today we're previewing a picture of one of these individuals: Baron Bomande Rudyahm. Can you tell where he's from?
Even years later, players still talk about the Society's first trip to Bloodcove, a dangerous port virtually owned by the Aspis Consortium and thoroughly hostile to Pathfinder agents. I'm really excited about this season's adventures in the Mwangi Expanse, and I'm especially pleased that with author Justin Juan's help we're able to return to this memorable city built on mangrove roots at the mouth of the Vanji River in Pathfinder Society Scenario #6-09: By Way of Bloodcove. It seems the Aspis Consortium is planning a major operation in the Expanse, and it's up to the PCs to find out what it is while evading the Consortium's agents. Allow me to introduce you to one of these rogues, a local fixer named Na'alu.
For the GMs, I've already begun to implement some of the changes announced last week, such as preliminary work on scenario length and inclusion of a blank, untagged version of each new map. Expect more changes in place with December's scenarios.
