Rough Seas

A pirate captain of the Inner Sea, Torius Vin makes a living raiding wealthy merchant ships with his crew of loyal buccaneers. Few things matter more to Captain Torius than ill-gotten gold—but one of those is Celeste, his beautiful snake-bodied navigator. When a crafty courtesan offers the pirate crew a chance at the heist of a lifetime, it's time for both man and naga to hoist the black flag and lead the Stargazer's crew to fame and fortune. But will stealing the legendary Star of Thumen chart the corsairs a course to untold riches—or send them all to a watery grave?

From award-winning author Chris A. Jackson comes a fantastical new adventure of high-seas combat and romance set in the award-winning world of the Pathfinder Roleplaying Game.

Black Flag!

4/5

There was a blog post last year asking the public what they would like to see in future novels. I remember posting my desire for a Pirate Novel, as a fan of pirates both in films and books since I was a boy, Treasure Island being my favourite book and film, I was quite surprised to see that my wish had come true.

Pirate’s Honour was slow to start with, but as I finished each chapter I found myself getting more sucked into the dilemma the crew of the Stargazer found themselves in. What I loved about this novel was the interaction of the characters namely Torrius and Celeste. Their personal story was heartbreaking at times and the desire to keep reading late into the night to find out what happened next was strong and easily given into.

Even though I loved the story I did feel that it didn’t really give one character a good chance of screen time, which was the Stargazer herself. I guess after reading the The Liveship Trader Trilogy by Robin Hobb, I felt that the ship would have had more of a presence then it did.

I hope that the crew of the Stargazer return for another adventure on the High Seas of Golarion.


Surprising

5/5

Was not expecting to like this one. I don't much care for pirate stories or adventures, or much nautical based fiction, so the fact that i loved this book is all the more surprising to me. I really liked the characters and the book kept me wanting to see what happened next.

So, bravo for making me like a book outside my normal preferences.


Not as swashbuckling as I was expecting

2/5

I've read every Pathfinder Tales novel, and usually have a hard time putting them down, but Pirate's Honor was an unfortunate exception. I'll try to keep my complaints spoiler-free.

I didn't find it nearly as exciting as the other reviewers did. Too much of the novel was dedicated to plotting and planning, and the action scenes left me wanting. While some of the characters were certainly unique, I didn't find them to be particularly multi-dimensional. The character I found to have the most depth was only a supporting role. A final note, while this was a light-hearted romp of a book, it was rarely humorous, even when it tried to be. Perhaps it is not fair judging this book on that, since it came out right after Liar's Blade, which was as funny an adventure novel as I've ever read.

On the plus side, it was nice to see a Pathfinder Tale with a pirate theme (especially as I'm playing in Skull and Shackles right now). While I'm not an expert on ships, there certainly seemed to be a lot of attention paid to how a ship runs, and the technical jargon helped with the immersion. It was also nice to see two main characters in a relationship.


Intrigue on the High Seas of Golarion!

3/5

I was pleasantly suprised by Pirate's Honor; I was expecting it to be entertaining, but it was also pretty well written, with some surprising depth. Check out my full review: Pirate's Honor

Hi

1)what level would Torius Vin and Celeste (Moon Naga) be?
2)what is Torius class? Pirate or Swasbuckler prestige (he never "sneak attack") or just a plain old fighter?
3) could not find any stat on a Moon Naga in the PFSRD site. Any ide/suggestion?

I am planning on incorporating them to this AP.

Lunar naga appear in Bestiary 3 (CR 6) Here is the link to the official PRD entry for them. It appears Celeste is a plain old lunar naga, she doesn't do much outside of the stat block. I would put Torius in the lvl 5-7 range as well, with leadership feat. As far as class goes.... pretty much any of the martial classes would work.

I created Torius as a 6th level fighter (corsair) You can find the archetype on the Pathfinder SRD webpage Here's the link: http://www.d20pfsrd.com/classes/core-classes/fighter/archetypes/paizo---fig hter-archetypes/corsair

Celeste is advanced one level in sorcerer above the Bestiary 3 stats for Lunar Naga, so she gets a couple more spells. They cast as 5th, and I needed her to cast as 6th... though I don't remember why...

Have fun!


1 person marked this as a favorite.

I loved this book. I have read 5 of the Pathfinder Tales, and while I generally liked them, I didn't love them. This one I love, great story, great characters, and it flows nicely.

I can't wait for the next installment of the crew of the stargazer.

The ePub lists the ebook ISBN as 978-1-60125-524-1, which ISBN.org considers an invalid number. Is there a typo?

That appears to be the paperback ISBN.

Hate to be a pain, just trying to get all the Pathfinder books tidied up on Goodreads.

Hey, look at that, they have different ISBNs! >.> The ePub ISBN should be 978-1-60125-524-2.

Perfect, figured it was just the checksum digit that was off. Thanks so much!
