Struggle to Survive in the Tyrant's Grasp

Use all your wits and skills to make allies, challenge invaders, and make your way back to the lands of the living in the first volume, The Dead Roads

Paizo Inc. has released two of six exciting volumes of the Tyrant's Grasp Adventure Path for the first edition of the Pathfinder Roleplaying Game. Volume one, The Dead Roads, and the second volume, Eulogy for Roslar's Coffer, are both available for purchase at paizo.com and retailers worldwide at an MSRP of $24.99 for softcover.

This survival horror campaign takes heroic players through both the afterlife and the mortal realm to stand against one of the most ancient threats ever to loom over the world. The heroes awaken already defeated—slain by a super-weapon unlike anything seen before. They must fight their way back to the land of the living and warn the rest of the land of this new threat.

The Dead Roads contains a first edition Pathfinder adventure for 1st-level characters. Additional material includes tips, tools, and tricks drawn from the Boneyard, an exploration of races inevitably linked to death, an extensive timeline of the events leading up to the campaign's beginning, and a bestiary of monsters drawn from the lands and lore of the dead.

Author of The Dead Roads, Ron Lundeen, recalls: “My favorite part of this adventure was building it in multiple parts, like a Netflix miniseries, with the players able to decide what order they tackle the middle pieces in. I wanted to make the middle pieces as different from each other as possible within the ‘horror movie' theme of the entire adventure, so they range from disturbing whimsy to space-warping nightmares.”

The adventures continue with a new volume every month for a total of six months. Volume three, Last Watch, can be preordered today and purchased starting April 24. The Tyrant's Grasp Poster Map Folio and the fourth volume, Gardens of Gallowspire, can both be preordered today and purchased starting May 29.

The free downloadable Tyrant's Grasp Player's Guide is available now is gives players all the spoiler-free background, information, and inspiration they'll need to create characters ready to hit the ground running.
