Chapter 1: "The Brinewall Legacy"
by James Jacobs

When a trove of fireworks falls into the hands of the goblins of Brinestump Marsh, the people of Sandpoint fear an explosive invasion. But there’s more afoot in the soggy wilderness than goblin hijinks and dangerous pyrotechnics. An investigation reveals mysteries and menaces aplenty, but also a treasure holding the answer to not just one of Varisia’s greatest mysteries, but a conspiracy spanning continents and empires. Can the adventurers piece together a puzzle that links the owner of a sleepy village tavern to the unsolved destruction of a fortress-settlement? And can they withstand the ancient forces and secret destiny that have waited for them for decades?

This volume of Pathfinder Adventure Path launches the Jade Regent Adventure Path and includes:

  • “The Brinewall Legacy,” a Pathfinder RPG adventure for 1st-level characters, by James Jacobs
  • An exploration of the hinterlands surrounding the town of Sandpoint, a region that’s anything but peaceful, by James Jacobs
  • A look into the mysteries of the oni, cunning fiends that can assume humanoid forms, by Mike Shel
  • Murder in a distant land in the Pathfinder’s Journal, by Dave Gross
  • Four new monsters by James Jacobs and Tim Nightengale

Each monthly full-color softcover 96-page Pathfinder Adventure Path volume contains an in-depth adventure scenario, stats for several new monsters, and support articles meant to give Game Masters additional material to expand their campaign. Pathfinder Adventure Path volumes use the Open Game License and work with both the Pathfinder RPG and the standard 3.5 fantasy RPG rules set.

ISBN–13: 978-1-60125-361-3

An excellent start to an epic AP

5/5

I've been running this AP for 3 years now and as we're drawing to the close of book 6 I realized I never put in a review for this book. The adventure itself is a great kick off, sets up the mystery and by the end it makes it very clear what the AP is about to the players. Brinewall is a great location offering memorable battles and rping.
The supporting NPC cast introduced offers plenty to work with for DMs and players and adds a great dimension throughout the campaign.
The only qualms are the unnecessary caravan rules and romance rules. Just ignore these. In conclusion, highly recommend this book for a level 1 adventure and the AP as a whole.


Plays great in PbP

5/5

This was a fantastic module. I have never seen an adventure go from small encounter to full-fledged adventure to epic campaign so naturally. I also really like the way the module foreshadowed the Tian (Asian) elements in the story.

Like many GMs these days, I run my games entirely in PbP and my gaming group and I have never physically met. Because of this, I really value the artwork in an adventure path because I need it for digital "handouts," battle maps, and encounters. Again, "The Brinewall Legacy" comes through as much as I could expect.

The Adventure Paths I've read seem to all include some additional mechanics to keep the game fresh. In Jade Regent, these mechanics have to do with caravaning, which is an important sub-theme in the game.

I don't recommend the relationship mechanics, as they felt a bit "Dragon Age" for my taste. A good GM should be able to let relationships develop organically.

The caravan rules are fun, but IMHO a little too simple. In my group we use them, but rather than deciding the combat, they just influence it. They also determine the results of NPC fights in a quick and satisfactory manner. This hybrid system is working well for us.

The only other modifications I made to the module had to do with consolidating and abridging the Brinewall Castle dungeon crawl that forms the third act. I only did this because of the slower nature of PbP gaming. I also eliminated the portion of the beginning that had to do with the group meeting. Instead, I began the game right in Brinestump Marsh, and gave the PCs a short backstory to explain how they all got there. Probably not necessary at a gaming table, but in PbP this saved us literally a week of time.

The end boss of the module was also a lot of fun to role-play, and for the PCs to battle. Warning: He's tough! You might want to power him down a bit or use easier tactics if your player group is inexperienced. Mine was not, so I let them have it as published and we were a little worried about a TPK. It didn't happen, but the dice could have gone either way.

In all, it took us nine months to play through this module in PbP. We are now 3/4 of the way through Night of Frozen Shadows, and I will review that module once we complete it. So far, it is also a very good adventure.

Five stars all the way for The Brinewall Legacy. This is excellent value for your entertainment dollar.


Second time still good

4/5

Overall this is the start of my favorite of the APs.

Highlights
- Massive Goblin fight
- Very fun story that has a nice slow burn that begins here

Lowlights
- Too many forced NPCs at the start. I did away with them
- The castle is huge and can be tedious esp if you play it as a PFS mod.
- Not a fan of the caravan rules

I've ran this as campaign and we had a great time with it. I've also gotten to play it as a PFS module and it still holds up. I just wish it wasn't so combat focuses in that castle. Seems to drag on.




Amzaing start

4/5

My reviews use bullet points, just how I roll.

The Good: -Compelling story especially if you play a goblin.
-decent story
-Travel feels like actual travel
-Good fights throughout

The Bad: -Eastern treasure kind of a gyp (pun intended.)

The Ugly: -Poor NPC design at times this is frustrating.
-Get the feeling the travel theme is going to become a grind? trust your gut it will.

Overall: I almost want to ding this by another star based solely on the treasure but the story was just plain amazing.

*Looks at map* Brinewall is kinda far from Sandpoint ... I guess they have to get you started toward Tian Xia even with the first adventure. Also more goblins + fireworks = me happy.

Brinewall is kinda far, yeah, but Brinestump Marsh is not.

Well, I can vouch for the "just barely on time" part, but "poorly" is far from the truth. Once James's stuff does come in, it requires a lot less development time than pretty much any other writer, so it's almost ok that it's not as timely as it oughta be. ALMOST.


Wait! If James is writing the adventure, What's his homunculus up to??

Argh.

I'm playing in such a campaign, in which the DM keeps the epic tone of the story to his desired levels simply by hardrailing our characters into "fringe" events, where the outcome seems constantly predetermined and our actions ineffective in the overall balance.

Hmmmm ... so maybe you feel like this? (link)

Another buddy of mine and I always joke about this - nobody can ever say anything even resembling "you see tracks" without the inevitable reply...

Not really, he's a bit more subtle (but not too much).

Like "We'd rather stay in the city and keep an eye on the situation, there seems to be a lot going on between the crime guilds and stuff (the previous 3 adventures)" - "No, your patron assures you that everything is kept under control by his agents, he'd send you to the frontier keep that stopped responding a month ago" - "Well, OK" - "When you get back to the city, you find it in flames, ruined and savaged by rebels who have acted without serious opposition" - "Ahrrr, let's join them, just to screw up the story".

Or maybe you're just more observant than you suspect? I've been placing hints that Ameiko has a pretty important destiny since the first Pathfinder, after all... I've been planning Jade Regent to happen for a loooooong time.

Looking at my notes, I remember writing down "important in the future, don't kill accidentally, make memorable" next to Ameiko.

The campaign went on, and after a year my players ... (spoilers ahead)

Spoiler:

Conquered Jorgenfist and the library. And for some reason the topic of Amieko resurfaced - the players were talking about where to go and take a nap after the battle. I wanted to add something cool about her to the story, but for the love of holy I couldn't recall just why is she supposed to be so important.

So I looked down my notes and made them find a tome about armor designs of Golarion - and one page, they found a cool-looking jadeite samurai armor, with annotation "ceremonial armor of Kaijitsu family"...

Now they keep tabs on Ameiko in case something weird happens :)

I always wondered what she was doing in Sandpoint, seemed rather odd. Though I am not smart enough to think into James thoughts and see like some here did. Though I must say bravo and good job to Paizo for linking the world together like this (i.e. AP's RotRL - Jade Regent) as I know my friend was super excited to hear about the tie-in, and he didn't even get to meet her as he joined the RotRL later. We both commented this is why we enjoy playing AP's though we are not your typical "play book adventures/module" players. Thats shows the quality of your work, also that I subscribed.

Though I just wonder if I should run this AP (as is), or just change it to suit the level 16 character who finished RotRL AP. Though the story seems so good I think I will run it using their Vassals/Followers, and making them play those characters :).

Well...

Spoiler:
Jade Regent, which is assumed to take place AFTER Rise of the Runelords, assumes Tsuto is dead. But even then, since Tsuto isn't a legitimate child (he was the result of an affair) he's not legally an heir anyway. So if you run this adventure "before" Rise of the Runelords, that's not an issue anyway.

Given how many months away this is, I don't really expect an answer yet, but...

Will there be a Tian Xia World Guide, comparable to the Inner Sea World Guide? Because man, I have a feeling it would take a lot of work to put that together. The Inner Sea World Guide at least had the 3.5 Campaign Setting to build off of - with Tian Xia, I imagine everything would have to be from scratch.

There won't be a Tian-Xia world guide comparable to the upcoming Inner Sea World Guide... but we WILL be heavily supporting Tian-Xia with multiple books.

Remember that the Inner Sea World Guide not only built off of the 3.5 Campaign Setting... but that the 3.5 Campaign Setting itself built off of a 64 page world Gazetteer.

Just wondering if Tian Xia will get a hard cover treatment, maybe more akin to the original Campaign setting in size or slightly smaller? It's apparent that the classes (or the archetypes) are being approached through the rulebooks and not a setting book(which makes me very happy by the way). I also would anticipate there being several articles on different aspects and location of Tian Xia in the actual AP. That leaves the Player's Companion line (which I could see approaching some of the more flavor rules for the players) and a Campaign setting book. I'd like to see a treatment in hardcover, though I understand that the beautiful monster you're currently shipping is an exception to size and girth for Campaign setting books.

Actually, I quoted that. You specifically asked if it would be comparable to the current book shipping, which he said it wouldn't. I asked if it would be a hardback book of a smaller size.


Unless they have secretly changed their minds, it has been said several times in Tian Xia-specific threads elsewhere in the forums that there will not be a hardcover book at all for Tian Xia. In other words, there will not be a Tian Xia World Guide done the way the Inner Sea World Guide is done, instead there will be a series of smaller softcover books for it. I think there will be one in the Companion line and one in the Campaign Setting line, and I thought there was mention of one more, but I can't remember right now what it was supposed to be.

Paizo Employee Creative Director

There are no plans to do a hardcover Tian Xia book at this time.

We'll cover it in a lot of smaller books, but not in a hardcover. Maybe someday down the road in a few years when we've got enough to fill a Hardcover book we'll revisit the possibility... but for now, not enough resources to do one with everything else we've got planned for the rest of the year.

Haha, woops. I thought it was you that hadn't read carefully... my bad.


I created a character for RotRL who came from Brinewall (before the "event"). In the end the character had to drop out after a level or two of the AP and ended up taking over the Hagfish Tavern as an NPC. Now I wonder if he might come out of retirement, especially as he had a friendly cooking related rivalry with Ameiko. Only problem is we will probably need a new AP before Jade Regent starts :(

I guess we will see

Will there be anything in this AP to address Rise of the Runelords?

For example, will Ameiko's age vary depending on if I've already run Runelords?

I have to figure out how to account for the happenings of Runelords seeing as how my PC's brought a lot of wealth to Sandpoint (and decided to settle there after the AP).

I'd hate to wave away their history as if it never happened.

One of the monasteries founded on the teachings native to the Tian Xia region also included a couple of teachers knowledgable in the code of the samurai and the techniques of the ninja. Now your PC wants to journey to the motherland as it were.

I'm sure Paizo will have a better method. But that would be my solution.

My friend has been writing an a home campaign set in the Mwangi Expanse involving the ancient secrets of the Shori. A Paizo book recently published exactly the campaign he's been writing (which saves him some work for the last bit of the campaign because a lot of it's already been written!). Sometimes Paizo are just good at subconsciously telegraphing their future plans.

I recall reading somewhere races appropriate/unique to Tian Xia would be provided in a book somewhere. But that plan may have changed or I might have just dreamt it up (I do that sometimes. My memory isn't the best).

IMO having to adapt future campaigns to the events in past campaigns is what's best about running multiple campaigns in the same setting.

Oh really? There was no hardcover guide to the Inner Sea available for Rise of the Runelords. Does that mean it was premature as well? In other words, do you really need a detailed look at an entire continent, just to play three adventures in a single country (that will no doubt itself receive coverage from the Companion and/or Chronicle line) within that continent? Of course not.
