This month we’re proud to release our newest stand-alone adventure for Pathfinder Second Edition: The Slithering!
In in the cosmopolitan trading city of Kibwe, at the edge of the Mwangi Expanse, innocent people struck by the terrible curse known as the slithering are melting into malevolent oozes. The heroes are at the epicenter of this slimy curse and might be the only ones capable of recovering the ancient magic needed to break it. Tracking the course of the curse through Kibwe’s bustling markets and shrines, they must untangle its origin and discover the role the nefarious Aspis Consortium plays in the unfolding conspiracy. The mysteries the heroes uncover might usher in a new era of plenty and prosperity for Kibwe—if they can survive the curse to experience it!
The Slithering, written by our own Ron Lundeen, is designed for 5th-level non-human characters. Yeah, you read that right. Did we not mention that the curse only affects humans? That’s a very dangerous detail to overlook when preparing to start this adventure. Can you imagine what would happen if your entire party consisted of all humans? Talk about a total party kill!
But don’t worry, brave Pathfinder! We have you covered. Even if you’re set to start playing right now, you don’t need to go back to square one in designing a non-human PC to play. We’ve got a free web supplement providing four ready-to-go PCs for just such an event.
Inside The Slithering Pregens document, you’ll find Melvok, a kobold witch; Oraka, an orc investigator; Savshin Starwatcher, a lizardfolk oracle; and Zathri, a catfolk swashbuckler. Why yes, now that you mention it, we did take this opportunity to give you a sneak peek at not only four new ancestries set to come out in the Pathfinder Advanced Player’s Guide at the end of the month, but also the four classes making their Pathfinder Second Edition debut in the same book! So whether or not you’re planning on playing, running, or completely ignoring The Slithering (I don’t recommend that last one, by the way), you won’t want to miss out on this free PDF download.
The Slithering and Pathfinder Advanced Player’s Guide are available everywhere on July 30!
