Extinction Curse Extravaganza!

The Circus of Wayward Wonders has come to the Starstone Isles in the Extinction Curse Adventure Path!

Come one, come all! Humble performers become leaders of the Circus of Wayward Wonders when tragedy strikes. But as these heroes lead their motley band of performers and roustabouts around the Isle of Kortos, they uncover a sinister plot to exterminate life from the Starstone Isle. The dead god Aroden may be gone, but his legacy lives on, as do his old enemies who would destroy the wonders he raised from the sea. Spectacle meets savagery as the heroes strive to stop the Extinction Curse!

The Extinction Curse Adventure Path begins with The Show Must Go On! The Circus of Wayward Wonders has just arrived in the remote town of Abberton, and the player characters are the stars of the show!

I ran session 1 last night, and the circus was... well... chaotic, panicky, and full of calamity. A bit of a circus really...

We had an animal handler threaten to feed a magician to his raptors, a bad case of clown lung leaving a lone gnome to try and manage the fumbles on her own, an Iruxi Monk spinkicking audience members in the stands, and of course, lots of people stepping carefully over the old ringmaster.

But by the close of the big finale, we totaled up the points, and with all the critical failures and a couple critical successes, the Circus of Wayward Wonders got a CRITICAL success to their first show! 17 Anticipation, 17 Excitement!

Prestige 5 at level 1, 34 GP to go towards improvements, and some VERY happy players.

Well done, Paizo...

Nice! There was quite a debate in the forums that it was hard if not impossible to succeed with the 15 Anticipation.

So the curious mind wonders...

Was Cosmo involved in the development of this AP?

Nope!

Wrin is an elf with the tiefling heritage. The glitter comes from her sorcerer fey bloodline. She's got a tiny cameo in the upcoming Gamemastery Guide, and a much larger role in a different, as of yet unannounced product I'm working on.

It is very improbable you reach 15+ Excitement - if you don't factor in the scripted events you can succeed at (using regular roleplaying, outside of the circus rules).

Congrats to Amos though.

They are called the rougarou; usually wolf-headed, but variations (more dog-like) exist. Detailed in PF1 in Bestiary 6.

Never heard of non wolf rougarou being a thing .-.

Anyawy, pugs are probably not rougarou considering those are Arcadia thing

They are called the Shoony in the Extinction Curse Player's Guide. We don't really have any more info than that, at the moment.

With Catfolk in book 2, I guess they are going with the "Cats & Dogs" theme like they did for the Catfolk/Rougarou boons being released side-by-side in PFS!
