Ron Lundeen's Skaldwood Blight 1-20 AP is a VIking-themed take on "Against Treerazor," and it's nearly done.

That said, this 3-parter sounds good, but I'd want Keftiu's 3 parts to be parts 4-6. I'd probably start the PCs in Jinin where the rise to become that nation's eventual delegation to the wedding. Parts 2-3 would probably hit Shenmen and Kaoling or maybe Wanshou. Maybe one of those would be an infiltration or raid type mission.

In general, the 9000-X are free player guides to PF adventure paths, and the 9500-X are products from Free RPG Day. For the list by product number, you probably need a product catalog. These were once posted annually, but I haven't seen pdfs of them since 2014 or so. They might be available through the Retail Support link, or you could try emailing customer service.

I'm confused. What's the adventure here?

I didn't have a specific adventure in mind for this one, just the illustration. That said, Kakistocrats wear white, and black is a slight underdog.

The One About the Nagas. They're an underrated creature type, and a series of adventures where the PCs travel as servants or people caught up in the intrigues of nagas could be cool. Perhaps one adventure involves escorting some naga pilgrim to Savisura, and another visits Nagajor. Maybe the patron is a naga who worships Desna who wants to travel. This would be a bit like Age of Ashes, but with more stealth, subtlety, and intrigue.

I vaguely recall a post by a Paizo employee saying that nobody at the company really cares enough about Brevoy to make an entire AP there. Doesn't help that it's essentially just Westeros, afaik. The most exciting thing to be written about that place is the Choral section in Legends.

Maybe an adventure, but that could probably be set anywhere cooler.

Far upthread, I pitched a return to Brevoy as The One About the Divorce. It might work as a three part high-level AP, though the trend seems to be to make two low-level three-parters, since the low level stuff tends to sell better.

Huh. That feels like a weird one to do off-screen, but alright.

Again, it's mostly because doing that storyline again would be repetitive, and would potentially cheapen the PFS experience by doing so. We often have to make decisions about what we want to do on screen and what we can't. The Galt revolution almost ended off-screen, for example, since it'd gone on for so long, but we decided to hold off and do an adventure for that one... but we have more stories to tell than opportunities to tell them as adventures.

And we could still go back and do those stories anyway. The sidebar in the Bestiary hardly spoils much about how it all went down.

It also put those four back in the mix so that players can chose them as patrons, of course, rather than have this weird sort of implication that 'your deity is imprisoned and maybe some day there'll be an adventure about it but it's not this one' situation as well.

I agree with keftiu. I'd also say that it would not feel as repetitive as it would to redo an AP theme because PFS season 8 had adventures that weren't really tied to the Ranginori plot, and the adventures that were are not necessarily all played by the same characters. I tend to think both of these things just make the PFS stuff less distinctive. Also, the liberate an elemental lord plot would be a good one to go extraplanar in 2e.

A few days ago, I came across a Melville quote from Moby Dick, and now I want the AP that has this as the end quote in the worst way: "It's not down on any map; true places never are." If this turns out to be the one for Strength of Thousands that would be quite the synchronicity.

The One About the Rehabilitation of the Elves: The PCs spend a lot of time in Kyonin, and the elves are not terrible. Might also involve a return to Celwynvian perhaps by way of Arsmeril, where the PCs are envoys helping the elves navigate being part of Xin-Edasseril. Or maybe they help overthrow Belimarius. Possibly one of the adventures is set in Jinin.

The One About How Evil Always Destroys/Turns On Itself: The PCs sometimes blunder into conflict between two evil factions (like Lamashtu vs. Pazuzu, for instance). Other times, they are unknowingly manipulated by an evil patron into defeating some other evil. One adventure would be Red Harvest or Yojimbo, basically. I like how this theme is done in the original Dragonlance trilogy, so this might be a good AP for a draconic ally in humanoid disguise. At least one villain, perhaps the ultimate foe, is a nihilistic daemon cultist. It might be nice to redeem a hellknight somewhere in this one too.

The One About the Guild: The PCs become major movers and shakers in a business or industry. Somewhat like Extinction Curse and somewhat like Council of Thieves. Might be good for a return to Osirion or Qadira.

The One About the Harrow: Every adventure title is also a Harrow card, one from each suit. The party starts in Galduria and works as agents of the Harrowed Society on various missions in Varisia and beyond. Perhaps far beyond. I'd like The Demon's Lantern to involve a heist on the Abyss, and The Eclipse to be either a metaphorical event where the PCs help one power supersede another or literal and on a timer. The Big Sky might involve a trip to the Spire of Lemriss.

The One About Keeping the Secret: The PCs are servants of Sivanah charged with keeping secrets secret.

My first draft of a four-PC party for this one would be:
Human ranger aiming for a Mammoth Lord archetype
Gorum-worshipping snow goblin bard with the warrior muse
a Pulura worshipper oracle with the cosmos mystery and

Although I mentioned it a thread on what themes you want in an AP, I'll say it again here. After the two APs immediately prior to this one, I'm going to want to see some "high culture." By which I mean things like fancy ceremonies with rococo furnishings and finery; the sorts of luxuries that a culture with an economy close to subsistence cannot afford; and manners and customs that a bunch of gun-toting outlaws would ignore. As an example, you could have another courtroom scene like the defense of the Beast from Carrion Crown, but this time, the PCs are the prosecution and the defendant is too powerful to face in a fight, leading to the party pursuing a legal process.

The titles look promising for this request, but I thought I'd make it here just in case.

I think I'd want to see Druma take the lead in reorganizing the politics of the Eye of Dread. The PCs would be mercenaries or troubleshooters and go on missions. Kind of like Age of Ashes, but less self-directed. One book with the orcs of Belkzen; one book about covert ops in Ustalav; some missions doing politics in nations far off like how the Mendevian crusaders must of rallied allies when the Worldwound opened; a book not directly tied to Tar-Baphon (perhaps countering a cult of Trelmarixian that is making things worse but not directly allied to T-B); maybe a return to Bloodsworn Vale to firm up ties between Varisia, Oprak, Nirmathas and Molthune; maybe after the success of that, they receive permission to use the stone roads to go someplace weird, like Arcadia, Iobaria, or some shaitan metropolis on the plane of earth.

While I'd like the travel of Age of Ashes, I would want the final boss to be something like Tar-Baphon's spymaster, so it's clear that the PCs have helped, but have not resolved or fixed everything. I also want the intermediate bosses to mostly not be the minions of Tar-Baphon, but wicked forces taking advantage of a bad situation.

Maybe instead of Kakistocrats as patrons, a trip to Druma is just one of the missions. The campaign could start as captives in Razmir, which they escape by stowing away on a Kakistocrat barge, but are geased to go on these missions as a way of working off what they should have paid to the barge owner.

You have identified the flaws in JR pretty well. Although the dating sim NPC mechanic is not good, I do like the NPCs. Possibly this is because two (Shalelu Andosanna and Ameiko Kaijitsu) of them first show up in Rise of the Runelords, which I liked. In addition to various humanoid NPCs, there's a couple of celestials and a sentient magic sword, which is a bit of a classic trope. There might also be a chance to befriend a small kami in the fourth adventure, too. I will say that with work, the vikings to ninjas in the second volume could be one of those acquired tastes that turn out to be surprisingly good. Maybe not quite pineapple on pizza, but at least BBQ chicken as a pizza topping. Looking over my copy, there's not quite as much social stuff in the vikings half as I remembered. Also, Greg Vaughan is a popular author.

As to your remark about Batman, I'd warn that CotCT isn't really the full Batman experience, since early on the most likely patron for the party is the head of the town guard. Also, your characters get a public award for doing good early on. Council of Thieves has more of the secret identity vigilante feel, because there are more chances where you need to hide your activities and intentions from the authorities. Also, since the main enemy in COT is a thieves' guild, it's more of a war in the shadows while CotCT is about opposing a tyrant instead of a supervillain.

Just worth remembering that a combat-focused group has an easier time using any AP as written, since they can always just take the fights as they come. It's the more RP style that needs to adjust more, usually. I still stand by my suggestion about how the earlier APs are earlier in the system's power curve, so if you allow your characters more options, they can have an easier time.

I wonder what kind of story could get us to tour Southern Garund?

That feels to me like one where you'd want the PCs to be Pathfinder Society members, like Serpent's Skull or The Shattered Star, in order to get a full, proper tour. Depending on the nature of the mysterious danger at the heart of Murraseth, possibly it could work as an AP where the PCs are Hellknights or in the Firebrands. Since it has a lot of jungle terrain, I expect it will be some time before we find out.

As an evil AP with the PCs as Aspis Consortium agents might be another way to do it, but I don't really like the themes such an AP would have, and I'd rather have a Red Mantis Razmir Must Die AP anyway.

Most likely this seems like one for PFS scenarios, like how they explored Tian Xia in season 3.

So I have some $ free and my college buddies loved having me DM Hell's Rebels. I'm planning to run War for the Crown for another group in a few months, but I'm looking for more good options.

I'm looking for:

--Substantial RP opportunities (i.e. pure dungeon crawl bad)
--One friend doesn't like the idea of going to near-modern Earth so sadly undead necromancer Rasputin and his army of gulag zombies are out.
--Not Hell's Vengeance (I refuse to play or DM the fantasy Gestapo).
--Engaging story, everybody involved is a story junkie.
--Moderately challenging--not too easy, not a miserable slog.

Any thoughts?

In general, getting the challenge level right is hard. Some groups really like the tactical and min/max aspect of the game, so Paizo adventures need to have foes that can threaten such groups. Partly to counteract this effect, I would advise you to look at some of the early APs. Since they came out before a lot of the rules hardbacks, they sometimes have less powerful foes.

After reading your first point, my thoughts went to Jade Regent. The mechanics of the caravan system aren't great, but the thing itself has a number of recurring NPCs. It does have some dungeons, but it also has a lot of wilderness and survival themes. The time among the Ulfen of Karlsgard in the second adventure could also offer some RP opportunities. Since you're avoiding pure dungeon crawls, you're unlikely to run your group of players through the Runelords trilogy, but if you do, you should know that an NPC in Rise of the Runelords is a major NPC in JR, as it's set between Rise of the Runelords and Shattered Star (so many dungeons). Another downside to this one is that the final antagonist is mostly a shadowy presence for almost the whole AP, so it could be hard for your group to nurture an appropriate level of dislike. If so, you'll need to work to make them like the NPC that they are supposed to help, kind of like War for the Crown.

Since they liked Hell's Rebels, you might consider Council of Thieves, but manage expectations so that they know it's The One About the Thieves' Guild, not The One About Fighting House Thrune. Also, you may need to improvise and invent your own material to build up potential NPCs to make Westcrown appealing. The second adventure also has a part where you could do a table read of an included script, since the characters are cast into a murder play. If you give them their lines ahead of time your group might enjoy being actors. I would say that COT is underrated relative to its potential. Has about three big dungeons (a former Pathfinder Lodge, the mayor's mansion, and the thieves' guild itself). As this was the first AP written for Pathfinder First edition, it does not end at as high a level as most APs, so that can help keep the math to a lower level.

Curse of the Crimson Throne is a fan favorite, and you should pretty much know who the ultimate villain will be by no later than the end of the first adventure. As it's largely in a city, there are lots of chances to make recurring characters. Your group sounds like they might like the Harrow deck elements, too. Depending on how much you like to improvise, you might want two Harrow decks: one for the choosing and one to stack so you can prepare a reading tailored to your group. The dungeons are mostly small for the first four adventures, but beware that the last two have really big dungeons. (Seriously, the fifth adventure is all about an enormous haunted castle. A bit like I6 Ravenloft from way back in the day. The penultimate dungeon in the final adventure is also quite large, but can be broken into hit-and-run raids. The last part of the third adventure also has a big noble house, but its size is mitigated because: 1. It's at the end of an investigation and 2. Not everyone who lives in it is fully committed to the survival of their housemates, so a clueful group can politic their way past many fights.) Of everything Paizo's ever done, this one may be the AP with the best story, TBH. Worth getting the hardcover reprint, since it tries to address some of the dungeon fatigue.

I would advise waiting on Kingmaker. It might be to your groups taste, but there's a hardcover compilation coming since the CRPG came out, so it would be better to wait on this one.

If we ever do get another sailing AP, I'd love for it to not be a pirate one - let us be privateers in the employ of Andoran, Vidrian, or the Mbe'ke, or something of the sort. Stomping out Okeno would be a really satisfying change to the setting to get to play through.

Seagoing do-gooders on soft exile from Holomog would be my first choice, while another dip of that big Sinbad energy like in the Kakishon portion of Legacy of Fire would be a close second.

For Tian Xia, I like the idea of the PCs as courtly band of knights from Jinin who wander from Kurosawa film to film. Second best would be like a spiritual sequel to Carrion Crown, except instead of creature features it's mostly other kinds of horror centered in Shenmen. Running a tea house in Kasai could also be cool.

After Quest for the Frozen Flame and Outlaws of Alkenstar, one theme I'd like to see come up in Blood Lords is refinement. Maybe the PCs need to host a funeral or tea ceremony, or appear at a knightly tournament, or as a reverse on the coutroom drama in Carrion Crown, maybe they need to prosecute and secure the conviction of a more powerful foe as their only hope of beating that foe. I will definitely want something "high culture" by then, though.

An adventure about the current political situation in Brevoy could happen in the future (although at this point it's not a plot that folks here seem too excited about, I have to admit), I suppose. We have far more stories we want to tell than opportunities to tell them.

I pitched the Kingmaker sequel/return to Brevoy as The One About the Divorce over in page four of this thread, but it sadly does not seem like it was that popular.

From the description in Mona's presentation, I did not get a clear idea of whether that AP would be more like the PCs are a biker gang on mammoths, or more similar to the caravan rules from Jade Regent and the refugees fleeing in Ironfang Invasion or DL3 Dragons of Hope.

With the Kingmaker hardcover coming relatively soon, my most-wanted sequel would be The One About the Divorce. Brevoy breaks up so Rostland and Issia are going their separate ways, and it's all the PCs can do to minimize the harm to the other kids as Mom and Dad fight.

She's basically an extraplanar version of an idle rich person who decides to fill time by taking up a worthy cause and dabbling in politics, with Dilix Mahad as a sidekick, an ally, or (as usual) an opportunist looking for the main chance who inserts herself into the action.

Since becoming de-haunted, Brinewall is now an actual port of call for ships going to or coming from points further north, and the PCs have some reason to be there, kind of like the stop in Sandpoint in Return of the Runelords.

What with all the churn in the Abyss, it seems like the minions of Abraxus are overdue to put in an appearance. They should be up to something nefarious to take advantage of things like the Gorilla King dying and the events of Wrath of the Righteous.

The Esoteric Order of the Palatine Eye needs to step up and show it will remain true to its founding mission. Even though they were part of the playtest module for PF2e, I'd like to see them again.

Guide looks awesome, but it does not have a product spot on its AP page.

Abomination Vaults: The monument of granite sent a beam into my eye.

I preferred the comics on Golarion rather than the crossover comics in the Worldscape, but I do appreciate this answer. When will we get more PF comics?

Hoping my shipping email comes today rather than next week.
