Hell Hath Fury!

Wednesday, February 17, 2016

There's only one week until the release of Hell's Vengeance! In "The Hellfire Compact", players take the role of evil characters to further the efforts of the Thrice-Damned House of Thrune. Last week Wes gave folks a look at what evil details players can expect in Hell's Vengeance, and this week Managing Art Director Sarah Robinson has put together an art preview (including a sneak peek at what's to come in the second volume, "Wrath of Thrune").

Two takeaways from this!

A) It looks like the Glorious Reclamation's heraldry is based off the Knights Templar.

B) See that Kuthite with the chain? Looks like another evil iconic.

Indeed it looks like a kouthite is going to join the Iconics.


finally hell will have its due

can't wait to play this

We already got an iconic divine caster (evil cleric), an iconic martial character (Hellknight) and an iconic rogue (Assassin).
So what's missing is the arcane caster and not another divine one.
Also i don't know what the reasons for the delayed players guide are, but it is a bad thing that it is available at the same day the AP starts.
I hope this is good, as i am hearing mixed reactions.
I reckon this will be the only evil AP that Paizo does for the foreseeable future (read years).
I will definetly buy this the first day and am very curious about the feel.

If I recall correctly they're doing two evil Iconics for each evil alignment, so they'll be nine of them. Plenty of room for another divine caster. ^_^

2 x 3 = 6, not 9. Still, that gives two extras beyond the classic 4.

These images just remind me how much I am on the Glorious Reclamation's side.

I hope the PCs fail. I probably shouldn't GM this...

I wonder what happens if the PCs decide to switch sides at the last minute.

Also I want to call it now that one of the evil Iconics is the antipaladin.

We already had 2 Evil iconics : Meligaster and Seltyiel.

Arcane meleist makes the Kuthist a Magus or a Bard IMO. Though TWF would exclude the Magus. Bloodrager is also a possibility

Doh! Funny how we can still make mistakes on the simplest of things.

I don't believe those two count. Plus Seltyiel is LE and two of the already released Iconics are LE, the Asmodean and the Hellknight, so that wouldn't quite line up.

It wouldn't like up with a LE Kuthite either. Perhaps the Kuthite is a NE Shade of the Uskwood?

The Kuthite seems to be wielding a spiked chain one-handedly. Interesting.

Looking at the sword in her other hand, maybe she's a swashbuckler?

However, two bald-headed women among the evil iconics? Hm.

I really like the Kuthite with the spiked chain, though not sure how to pull it off in game.

Do we know that the Asmodean is indeed LE ? I peg him as NE.

Lazzero has a statblock in the first volume of Hell's Vengeance and he is indeed LE.

I would almost categorize that as a flail....
