A guest blog on new Pathfinder Terrain by Michał Hartliński at Archon Studio.
Pathfinder Terrain’s story continues as we add a second location: the City of Absalom! It features the Tudor architectural style—perfect for any starter town a Game Master might wish for.
4000 Years in the Making
The city of Absalom is one of the oldest and most diverse cities in Golarion. Known as "The City at the Center of the World," it’s renowned for its enormous size and influence throughout the world.
Absalom boasts some of the finest—and oldest—buildings and monuments on the Inner Sea. Over the nearly 5 millennia since Aroden founded the city, Absalom has been built, rebuilt, and rebuilt again, resulting in a tapestry of architectural styles as diverse as the countless citizens and visitors who throng its streets and markets. Immigrants from every corner of Golarion can be found within the city’s walls, alongside their architecture, artwork, and customs.
Bringing With It Iconic City Life
Absalom is also known as the "Patchwork City" due to its many architectural styles mashed together over the years. It was a challenge for our art director, Tomasz Badalski, to find a compromise between all the clashing art styles.
I have spent a while looking for the most appropriate art style for Absalom and came up with way too many widely differing ideas. I have decided to find something mostly "townish" but add a little detail that will clearly tell it apart from other cities, which is why you will find Aroden’s emblem on every door and pin. For the architectural style, I went with Tudor as a base. I think it all came together really well.
What’s in the Box
The city of Absalom comes with plenty of walls, floors, and, of course, fully functioning doors. It’s more than enough to build two large rooms, for example. To make it easier to personalize your structures, over 40 props are included in the set. You will find metal chests, books, scrolls, barrels, candles, and lamps. If you need to take cover, columns are also included in the set.
Dwarven Mine Props Pack
Apart from a cozy and comfortable city, we are also releasing something for our underground explorers. Our first "Props" pack will be released, starting with the Dwarven Mine. There, you will find all kinds of extra elements that can be used as scenery pieces, items of interest, or quest objectives during your game session.
