From countless crypts and forgotten fortresses, undead masterminds scheme all manner of unnatural depravities. Whether they take the form of murderous ghouls preying upon a city’s poorest citizens, wayward spirits trapped in ghostly form, or nefarious liches who continue their evil beyond death, there’s no shortage of terrifying undead in the world of the Pathfinder campaign setting. And now they’re just waiting to be set loose on your campaign!

Inside you’ll find 15 deathless enemies, each with full statistics, details of the villain’s history and plots, and a complete lair ready to torment and terrify unprepared heroes. Unleash a host of Golarion’s most fearful foes with Pathfinder Campaign Setting: Undead Unleashed!

Within this book, you’ll find:

  • The treacherous ravener Arantaros, who made a bargain with the demon lord of alchemy to extend his life into undeath.
  • The well-intentioned ghost Ordellia Whilwren, who attempts to carry on the work of the goddess of dreams even in death.
  • The sinister Wight Mother of Isger, blessed by the goddess of undeath herself and tasked with spreading disease throughout the world!
  • Erum-Hel, the mythic Lord of Mohrgs, who plots to put an end to the crusader goddess Iomedae.
  • The Osirian vampire Prince Kasiya, nemesis of Count Varian Jeggare and primary villain in the Pathfinder Tales novel "King of Chaos".
  • Ten other foul exemplars of undeath, from ravenous ghouls and devourers to overwhelming nightshades and liches.

Pathfinder Campaign Setting: Undead Unleashed is intended for use with the Pathfinder campaign setting, but can be easily adapted to any fantasy world.

Undead Unleashed presents fifteen entries each detailing one or more unique undead in Golarion. The book begins with a two-page spread giving an overview of each entry. The book has a good spread of challenges and different levels. The weakest is a CR 3 ghastly in an urban environment. The second most challenging is a CR 22 banshee with class levels running a twisted reflection of her former pleasure barge that floats on a lake in the middle of a demon-overrun wasteland. Topping the list is the CR 23 Lord of Mohrgs. At least one of these baddies also has some mythic tiers to really challenge the party.

Then come the fifteen four-page spreads for each entry. The first two pages of each entry are devoted to background and a stat block for each entry. The next two pages contain a small map and encounter entries for the specific undead creature's lair. Each of them also includes a haunt. If you're a GM running adventures for PCs that don't necessarily love labyrinthine dungeons, the shorter entries will be perfect for you. The table of contents and the open game license round out the 64 pages. There's also a nice map of the Inner Sea region that shows where each of the baddies make their lair.

Ordellia's a ghost? Hmmmm...

Is Unleashed going to be a recurring book type? The last one was pretty neat.


WALKENA!!!

Dark Archive

I'm looking forward to seeing both Erum-Hel and Walkena (particularly Walkena).

Others I'm hoping to potentially see:
* Socorro
* Ruithvein
* Geb
* One of the Bone Sages
* One of the leaders of House Shraen
* Some manner of notable Nightshade

Nightshades aren't undead though, right?

Will this have Mythic in it?

Dark Archive

They are. They're extraplanar, but they're Undead (Extraplanar, Nightshade) instead of Outsiders.


Nightshades are extraplanar Undead, and there was a Nightshade in Undead Revisited :)

Given the presence of Walkena (who is actively worshiped as a deity and provides the domains Community, Evil, Law, and Weather) and Erum-Hel (who was a general of the Whispering Tyrant and fought Iomedae), I'm hoping it does (though I don't think either of the above has been directly guaranteed as mythic).

Lirgeni lich Meyi Pahano is one to watch.

Do your research, boys and girls, like I do.

Her entry in the lich article in Carrion Crown (Chapter Six) is downright provocative, if you're a student of campaign lore, secrets, and conspiracies.

And no.. not just because of bone sages.

Not too interested with this one.

I'm not saying anything, but Lord Gadigan is onto something.

Ah, dear Meyi.


I am hoping to see a bit more of Walkena. Maybe a bit of Mythic support, too.

Yet another very interesting release just announced!


I'd love to see Walkena written up. I'm making a similar character that's an Incan mummy prince.

Is this basically just an updated book from the 3.5 Undead book?

If you mean Undead Revisited, that was, to my knowledge, published under Pathfinder rules already. Rather than a book about undead, I imagine this book is more like the relationship between Dragons Revisited (which was admittedly 3.5) and Dragons Unleashed...Revisited talks about dragons and the undead, while Unleashed stats up various dragons or undead, gives information about them, their situation, their goals, other NPCs related to the situation, maps, and so on and so forth, allowing a DM to drop them into a game as they like. So I'm anticipating it to be a very different book.

Paizo Employee Developer

Luthorne is correct. This is going to share the same format as Dragons Unleashed where it will take undead that have been mentioned before in Golarion and present a background, a statblock, and a lair for each of them so GMs can present an encounter or the seed of an entire campaign.


I bet there's going to be a badass graveknight included here. :)

Dark Archive

This looks interesting... wow! Mythic undead! Me wants! :)


I'm potentially very interested in this, always great to have fully stat blocked and detailed monsters, especially with lairs and minions! From the examples given so far though I am wondering what the rough CR range of the enemies will be? If it is mostly a book with high level (cr 13 and up) threats it won't be much use for me in particular, while a lot of midrange enemies (cr 5-12) would be very useful!


Pathfinder Companion, Rulebook, Starfinder Adventure Path, Starfinder Roleplaying Game Subscriber

Well, it's hard to say for certain if Dragons Revisited is indicative (especially since mythic rules hadn't come out at that time), but if it is, it had: CR 3 (The Brazen Clutch) CR 10 (Sonthonax), CR 11 (Rezlarabren), CR 12 (Tuan Huy), CR 13 (Maghara), CR 15 (Toishihebi), CR 16 (Eranex), CR 17 (Moschabbatt), CR 18 (Sjohvor), CR 19 (Seryzilian), CR 20 (Zedoran), CR 21 (Deyrubrujan), CR 22 (Fahrauth), CR 23 (Garaudhilyx), and CR 25 (Aashaq). So, based off of Dragons Revisited, I would expect a fair number of high CR creatures, but also some low to mid level ones to round things out.


Very nice!

We're making a few adjustments. I'm not a fan of sticking to a format just to stick to a format—so don't expect hoards, for example. But, we'll see how this one goes. If folks dig this as much as they did dragons, we'll certainly be interested in hearing what people want next.

Aberrations? Those guys almost never get any love! Unique variant aboleths and nagas, say, that would be something :)

Hey, aberrations get a lot of fiendish dwarven love here in Westcrown, at least in my dungeon! ;)

(but yeah, I totally agree with you; I also want 'Aberrations Abstracted', or whatever it would be called)

Ooh,Prince Kasiya is in here! Always cool to see some things from the Tales line cropping up in the rulebooks.

Haha, seriously? Good luck with that, buddy.

A mohrg's reach should exceed his grasp, else what are mythic powers for?

You go tell him that >:)


Will this have anything that is transposable into Virlych? My PCs are halfway through book 5 of Carrion Crown, and I'd love some high level horror to throw at my PCs on top of what's in Shadows at Gallowspire. The September release coincides perfectly with where we'll be then...

He might want to invest in resistance to sonic damage.


i'd rather seen this in a version that features Bestiary 3 and 4 monsters instead of mostly bestiary 1 and 2 undead.

Tho more Mohrgs and Nightshade info is always welcome.

Seriously, that cover is wicked!


Can i assume that each monster has a lair with a map and could be setup for a mini adventure or tied to a larger dungeon/adventure. If so it could be perfect for what i need.


Three of the undead detailed in the description are each attached to a goddess.

Yep, that's exactly what's in this book. Have fun!
