Well that is disappointing:(
Could you elaborate? Were you hoping for an AP set in a different area or something? I for one am psyched that we get a chance to battle another (maybe even multiple) Runelord.

Not every thing is of equal interest to every person, so it's probably best to just leave it at that.

Personally, I'm really excited to FINALLY be able to finish up the "Runelords" trilogy. "Return of the Runelords" contains some plot elements that I've been eager to explore pretty much since day one of Pathfinder, back when I was working on Rise of the Runelords. I've been dropping hints and foreshadowing and other things about a lot of the stuff that's gonna take place in this AP for decades. Gonna be really fun to see how it all works out!

Your hints and foreshadowing hasn't gone unnoticed.

Disney is trying to change that it seems... LOL! ;)

...although there *are* some seemingly evil ones in the preview... :P

They did the good giant thing before in 1958's Paul Bunyan

Paris endured five years of occupation by one of the most brutal regimes in history (1940-44). Paris will continue to endure, it's spirit will not be easily extinguished.

So your players from Hell's Rebels get to play the "other side", and get to undo everything their previous characters accomplish? Uh, lol.

Also, Way of the Wicked from Fire Mountain Games. Just say'n lol

There had to be an AP dealing with the "Diabolical Empire" eventually. To me it feels like a quasi-follow up to Wraith of the Righteous, but minus the "mythic" part.

Sorry if I come off as nitpicking, but i sorta hope they did their homework. The mistakes that authors and game publishers have made over the years are numerous (particularly in the artwork). Just because its built of wood and has sails doesn't mean it fits.

Ships from 900 BC to 1660 AD are certainly the kinds you can find on Golarion. Basically, anything you’d see sailing from Ancient Greece, to part of the Renaissance; the galley, galleass, longship, cog, caravel, carrack certainly work. But ships, especially warships, like those that appeared from the late 1600s to the 1800s don't fit. The Sloop, Brig, Brigantine, Frigate, Schooner, Cutter, Clipper, Windjammer and the famous "ship-of-the-line," don't work.

I know it's all fantasy, but I guess if you know enough about a certain thing, it gets harder to look past stuff.

Just for the heck of it, I put together a brief that puts the distance of time on Golarion into perspective by using Earth. As mentioned in the AP Reign of Winter's Rasputin Must Die, which states Earth 1918 is parallel to Golarion's present (4713 AR) and using that to work backward as well as I could.

Yes I have to much time on my hands. :P

I'd probably just dig up my The Mummy (1999) and The Mummy Returns (2001) cds.

Best options are either to retire the mythic PCs or leave the boundaries of the world into other dimensions/planes.

There is also the OUTER SPAAAAAACE option.

OR you could have a convoluted plot were Darkseid triggers another Crisis and everything resets to ZERO right before the start of Rise of the Runelords, and everyone goes "What the @$#% just happened!!"

If your PC is in this region, don't let them wear a red shirt or the GM may be tempted to make a joke-reference out of them.

Was wondering what effects on the wardstone lost/hidden at Icerift Castle would be considering events in The Worldwound Incursion?

Two Steps From Hell of course :)
Also a selection of Christopher Drake (Gods Among Us comes to mind) and even some Hans Zimmer (the Terraforming track from Man of Steel fits, since the Worldwound is a demonic effort at terraforming Golarion).

It's not a stretch to say the originators of the crashed starship (which may suggests that it's presence is unintentional) placed programmed protocols in things like the "robots" to help prevent or at least limit "contamination" on what they consider a developing planet. But what if some of the "AI's" gain a form of self-awareness and choose a different course of action.
