Ultimate Campaign Art Preview!

Tuesday, May 7, 2013

The release of Pathfinder Roleplaying Game: Ultimate Campaign is getting ever closer. Whether it's kingdom-building or leading an army, starting a business or crafting magic items, Ultimate Campaign is for all of the adventures that take place outside of the dungeon. The pages of the newest Pathfinder Roleplaying Game hardcover provide all kinds of useful information for your campaign, but many fantastic illustrations are contained within! Check some of them out!


Being a ruler has many responsibilities, but also many rewards.

Eidolons and other companion creatures are more fun when treated as a separate character rather than an obedient stat block.

Retraining rules allow you to replace a feat, change an ability score increase, or improve your hit points.

The quest to find a missing family member is a driving force for many heroes.

The section on marriage talks about how a spouse (or any relationship) can be an ally or an adversary.
Illustrations by Sam Burley, Eric Belisle, Lydia Schuchmann, and Maichol Quinto



Kingdom-building rules allow PCs to control their own country—or be the power behind the throne.

Followers, apprentices, and similar companions can be positive or negative plot hooks for a PC.

A character's lineage is a chain of characters linking a PC to the history of the campaign setting.
Illustrations by Denman Rooke, Jim Nelson, and Grafit Studio

Ultimate Campaign releases this May, preorder your copy today!

I think it's running off with his hat, actually. Which is cute.

The caption for kingdom building looks like it'll address the logical issues my players had with being rulers and leaving the kingdom to adventure.

It's hard not to squee loudly while looking at these at work. As always, Paizo out does themselves when it comes to art!

Is it just me, or is there a lot of Ezren here?

Not that that's a bad thing. I quite like Ezren, actually.

Lini should be in a pic where she's doing something Gnomey-cute while her cat is taering the S@#T out of a monster.

Good timing with that Seoni bridal art, my fiancee is hunting for a suitable wedding dress!

When writing the art order for this book, I tried to show that "other events in a campaign can really change your character's outlook over time," so in a few places I deliberately tried to put the iconics in situations where you'd never expect them.

So Seoni is wearing a very conservative wedding dress that is the opposite of her normal, revealing outfit.

Valeros's picture (not shown) is one of the other ones in the "huh, never expected that" category (and no, it's not about his outfit).

Yeah, same thought here after seeing that familiar "guilty dog" look. :)

Why are we sure it's her? The picture filename just says "Monk".


Wasn't there a fan theory that Sajin IS Sajni? :)

I've got an image in my head now of Seoni the bride with the rest of the female iconics as her bridesmaids, at Ye Olde Chypinndaels flinging coins at the male iconics going the full monty.

I'm hoping it's Valeros holding a baby.

While no, we don't have any official confirmation, I would be extremely surprised if it's not. Between the appearance and the obvious similarities to Sajan in both physique and clothing, and the description blurb, it's pretty much a dead-ringer for "this is Sajni".

Same thoughts. There are so many clues included that coming out and saying it's Sajni in the blurb would be like comics from the 60's where the characters and narrator say what's happening in the panel itself. ;)

Words cannot express the horror of the images this brief statement placed in my brain. Congratulations, I now have to buy brain bleach in institutional size.

Ahh is there a greater bond then a gnome and his giant chicken serpent?


Oh. My. Gosh. I love Seoni and Sajni(?)!


That Eidolon thing (I always thought the mage summoned a Cockatrice tho) would be the PERFECT artwork for the Aitvaras, a creature that is half dragon half rooster, outdoors it will be a dragon, indoors a fiery rooster, that picture would be the perfect outdoor dragon version of the Aitvaras.

Valeros: "Hrggght...six...Hrrrgghht...seven..."

Merisiel: "What are you doing, Valeros?"

Valeros: "Um, uhhh...HRRGHHHT...NINETY-NINE...HRRGHHHT...ONE HUNDRED!"


Valeros: Do any of you ladies know where I can put my anvils?
