Jade regent is in fact 1/6 Varisia, actually. It's not really a sequel to Rise of the Runelords at all; it really just uses 2 NPCs from that campaign as significant characters.
The Shattered Star AP, on the other hand, is DEFINITELY a sequel to Rise of the Runelords.
And while what I have tentatively planned beyond Shattered Star doesn't return to Varisia anytime soon... there's enough going on still in Varisia to sustain numerous other APs. The campaign I'm running for the folks here at Paizo, for example, does a lot of stuff in Varisia (in fact, stays pretty much in the Sandpoint hinterlands with a few side trips to Magnimar) that hasn't really figured into anything in print at all.
I wish you would share with us your tentative plans so we may all treat them as absolute fact. Wow, that was a mouth full! I bet you can't say that ten times fast. I double dare you. Just say what I said, especially the beginning.
Three out of six of our players think Varisia is awesome so we don't mind it. I'm going Jade Regent style on The Shattered Star for a bit though; not making a decision on whether to purchase or not until we get close to the release dates and I can see who's writing what.
