Dream a Little Dream...

The cult of Hastur no longer threatens Thrushmoor, and now the adventurers board a riverboat to Cassomir to track down their obsessed and corrupted former employer. Along the way, they explore the Dreamlands and attempt a number of bizarre dream quests, after which the adventurers can heal their fragmented minds—but they also learn of a greater threat looming over Golarion. Can they survive the perilous Dreamlands and emerge intact or will they be stranded in a dimension of nightmares?

  • A comprehensive gazetteer exploring the Sellen River, Avistan's most expansive waterway, including additional encounters one could run into while sailing its winding course, by Liz Courts.
  • A heart-pounding journey through the dark in the Pathfinder's Journal, by Wendy N. Wagner
  • A collection of terrifying and bizarre monsters, including an enigmatic Great Old One, by James Jacobs and Todd Stewart.

Good

4/5

Only 2 downsides:
-getting here is basically impossible if your players burned down the mansion and with that the books they needed to do the travels, but that is a problem i need to solve myself.
-In the end of the adventure, it says "oh yeah, I hope you took your player's character sheets at level 7 and copied them, cause now you'll need them. This encounter could've been so cool! And putting a short disclaimer in the beginning of the book would've been so easy, but noooooo, it's gotta be at the end of the book, when the PC's already advanced 2 levels. That's just neglect of the reader

This part of the adventure is gorgeous! 2 lines of adventure, intertwining together however the DM wants it to happen. you can count the days they travel and make it exact, or eyeball all the encounters! Add more sea encounters from behind the book if you want too! And the dreamland parts are amazing, so much creative stuff went into there, and the RP options are amazing as well

Announced! Product image and description subject to change.

I wonder what mad figure could be on this cover? Most curious. :)

Looks like Alahazra is the fourth iconic. Always a good choice.

Also, gugs! I love gugs!

So this is the first adventure path with all human iconics.

I'm guessing it's Abdul Alhazred, infamous author of the Necronomicon. ^_^

My hands are YUGE compared to his. But seriously though, Al is a great guy, super classy, just the best.

But would it kill him to clean the microwave every once in a while.

Nobody wants a filthy break room, and if we all just chip in a little, it wouldn't get this bad...

Yeah, that is Abdul Alhazred the mad Arabian with the Necronomicon.

Adventures in the Dreamlands - cool.
I hope the Cats of Ulthar and Ulthar are statted up.

Great stuff!


Cool! I hope one of those articles is extra big, otherwise we are missing something.


All I care about is having more stuff to scare the crap out of my players. :p ;)


Interesting.

I didn't think it was possible but my NEED for this AP is growing with every installment. Take my money! Take my memories too! Please, just gimme!

the yellow king? as in the "king in yellow"?

The same. This is going to be a pretty Hastur heavy AP.

If you say so book.


To quote Samuel L. Jackson "Don't believe everything you read."

Also, read what is written carefully. Just because the cult of Hastur no longer threatens Thrushmoor does not necessarily meant that other servants of Hastur or even Hastur himself are not threats to Thrushmoor. Alternatively, the cult of Hastur could now be threatening some new location that the player characters are expected to travel to.

Either way, I don't think the player characters would get away with saying, "We beat Hasture. What's next?"


The good news: Hastur has stats.

The bad news: His CR might be too high for the end of this campaign. XD


1 person marked this as a favorite.

His CR is pretty damn high...


So, Alahaza, Erasmus, Feiya, and Quinn... sounds fun!


Thus looks it is going to be a great AP


So basically the oracle, medium, witch, and investigator.


So all the creepy ones! Nice. :)


That is hardly all the creepy ones;)


Yeah, but it's probably a good mix for this campaign. XD

Now the adventure just needs a run-in with a night hag who worships Alazhra the Dream Eater. ^_^

Which, as I'm sure you already know, would be a perfect CR encounter for this level 7 adventure. Slap a cleric simple class template on her for an even more challenging version.

Alahazra. Feiya. Quinn. Erasmus. Not a melee-focused class amongst them. Looks like Erasmus is going to have to spend a lot of time channeling the Champion, or else Alahazra had better learn Divine Power and Righteous Might.

Still, it's a cool idea to do an AP with such a non-combat focused quartet of Iconics.

Classic party balance is never really a thing we concern ourselves with too much when selecting what four iconics to use in an AP. What matters most (and pretty much the ONLY thing that matters) is picking the four that are thematically (art and class and personality) correct for the AP.


A nice set up for the iconics, was hoping for Damiel personally but oh well. Really can't wait for this adventure path.

I'd like to come back to this point - is it just the adventure, extra encounters, and monsters (plus fiction)?


Azaz,

I'm pretty sure it's all of it.


It's not the final product description, so they might add more to it. :-)


Captain,

True and they still have fiction too! :)

My money on the GREAT OLD ONE in this volume is on Atlach-Nacha, the Void Weaver by Clark Ashton Smith, because it´s a spider that weaves a giant web between the Dreamlands and the Waking World (and the alleged creator of the Leng Spiders and Scarlett Walkers?).


So, no article in this one?

According to the forward in In Search of Sanity...

Spoiler:
The PCs will actually be fighting a Great Old One in this adventure. I think we can assume that they will lose this fight, which tells me it takes place in the Dreamlands.

Right now the only Dreamlands dweller with stats is Bokrug, so he's a strong contender for this encounter. Assuming Bokrug isn't the guy though, the fact that Atlach-Nacha actually lives on Earth might potentially rule her out. That said, I can't find any other Great Old One who reside in the Dreamlands except Mhar, and that is a weird case. So you may well be right.

Also worth considering: every Great Old One thus far has the ability to use the spells dream and nightmare, so in that regard anyone could be a contender.


Or is the encounters found along the Sullen River the article?

That's one article. Not sure what the other one is. Maybe there's only one article this time.


I think it's a super long article.

I can't wait, super excited for that part. :-)


I'm worried the product description hasn't been updated yet. Hopefully this doesn't get bumped back a month.

The Sellen River article is a double-sized article. It is half gazetteer and half sample encounters that you can plug into this adventure or any adventure that occurs on the Sellen (or any river, really).


Ok, well that explains that, thanks for the info Mr. Daigle.

Huh? I thought, I'd seen ... never mind.

So we get the next installment of this great AP and a gazetteer on the Sellen which shapes and defines my favorite region on Golarion. Yay!

Ruyan.

Thank you for your time and effort, previously and completely unknown contributor. I'm sure the Paizo boards will be happy to see more of your contributions to come as well as seeing another bringer of fun around.
