Glories of the Dawn

Sprawling along the eastern shore of the Inner Sea lies Qadira, one of the mightiest nations of the region. Itself merely the westernmost tip of the vast Padishah Empire of Kelesh, Qadira has long stood as a bastion of culture and faith for humanity. Great dangers and wondrous opportunities for adventure await within this storied land—those who visit Qadira are well-advised to prepare for their journey!

Inside this book, you'll find:

  • Comprehensive information about the history of the mighty nation of Qadira, its people, their customs, and their faiths.
  • A first look at many elements of the Padishah Empire of Kelesh, including new societies, new faiths, and new organizations from that ancient region.
  • A full map of the nation of Qadira that covers both its civilized regions and its wilderness, revealing never-before-detailed jungles, strange new sites in which to adventure, and the full expanse of the land's beautiful but deadly deserts.
  • A detailed and robust system for finding patrons and working with Qadira's movers and shakers among the nobility and powerful merchant families.
  • Several new monsters, including genie-touched horses, along with a wide range of new player options for characters from Qadira, including archetypes, feats, magic, traits, and much more!

Pathfinder Campaign Setting: Qadira, Jewel of the East is intended for use with the Pathfinder campaign setting, but can be easily adapted to any fantasy world.

3/5

This book is not really 'bad', just middle of the road IMO.

It excels at flavor text, but falls flat on mechanics. A lot of the Traits / Items were already published in previous books, so there is very little NEW stuff to play with in this book from a mechanics standpoint, and what little new stuff there is, most of it is sub-optimal.

The one exception to this is the new horses, these open up more options for Cavaliers, which is always nice to see.


Jewel of The East

4/5

A good solid campaign setting book with a lot of interesting information, not as good some of the others but well done otherwise.

The good
-Interesting locations and adventure ideas.
-Cultural history, norms, and taboos.
-Non-evil clerical/divine "working girls".
-Good artwork.

The bad
-Not enough cultural/desert themed monsters/races(stated up or talked about).
-Map issues.
-Felt like something is missing.

Other
-Not enough horses;)


One of the Best!

5/5

Read my full review on Of Dice and Pen.

Without doubt, Qadira, Jewel of the East is one of my favourite Pathfinder Campaign Setting books. It is simply jam-packed with information that not only brings the nation of Qadira to life, but also expands the world of Golarion in pretty significant ways with its glimpses into the wider Empire of Kelesh. This is an important and exciting thing for, while Golarion is certainly a diverse world, the fact is that the majority of books (with a few notable exceptions like Distant Shores and Osirion, Legacy of Pharaohs) have detailed places based on white European cultures. Qadira, Jewel of the East helps balance things out a little. I highly recommend it.


Great flavor & options, bad maps.

4/5

GOOD:
Everything the author Jessica Price wrote is brimming with flavor and adventure ideas. The art evokes an oriental atmosphere.
The "Ring of Return" wondrous item, the regional traits, the "Ashiftah" Witch Archetype, Gildea Myrrh, Sunsilk, the "Regions of Qadira" gazetteer, the "Order of the Saddle" cavalier order, Qadiran Horse Tricks, Qadiran Saddle, all 6 of the Bestiary creatures are great, 5 of them are really cool/hot animal companions!

BAD:
There are only 3 maps in this book:
1. Qadira on the inside front cover which shows all the big settlements and adventure sites, but is too confusing (more different colors for ease of optic recognition would have been better),
2. Payaham´s Villa on page 54 (way too big to replicate even on a "Bigger Flip-Mat" and plainly designed) and

UGLY:
3. The map of Katheer on the inside back cover is understandably rough because of it´s size, but it´s designed only in different tones of brown and has neither a scale nor shows individual buildings.

This book has lots for GMs and players alike and really brings a very distinct oriental vibe with it.
The only thing keeping it from gaining 5 stars are the lazily designed maps, which are a real pain on the eyes.
Still, a must-buy for the incredible rest!

5/5

I love the Setting line, it just keeps giving me such wonderful things to play with.

I don't think I could go over everything but I will state that you'll notice a definite difference when these are the love and sweat and angry jumbled curse words of a single person, the whole book just seems to flow together effortlessly in its depictions of Qadira and Kelsey culture and history, of which there is plentiful. From the kings to the couriers every delicious little bit of info you never asked for but always wanted has been laid out, or as much of it as can be in a book this size.

From the mechanics side of things the Ashiftah, or "Battle Witch" is now my absolute favourite Witch archetype, beating out the Wyrmwitch. Going invisible when you Hex someone? Casting touch spells at range? And extending the range of Hexes with nasty fog of war as well. And like the Hexes themselves, you can do this all day.

The Solar Sorcerer bloodline and Sun Totem Rage Powers are also cool (the former helps people with Fire, the latter ends them with Fire).

And there's also a bunch of cool stuff for mounted characters (would you like a second attack on your Ride by Attack?) including Geniekin horsies!

Tangent: for those who have been looking, there's some absolutely kickass art of a Qlippoth-descended Tiefling in this (as well as a rather lovely Harpy).

Sorry, I'm crap at writing reviews.

I was trying to avoid repetition with the Qadira PC, so while there's information about where most flying carpets come from, there aren't new flying carpet mechanics.

Been waiting for this book since... pretty much the original Gazetteer revealed there was a Qadira. So I'd be stoked even if it didn't have cool writers - but since it does have cool writers, I'm stoked like a red-hot furnace for this.

Is it christmas yet?

Swoon! I love Arabian Knights/Al-Qadim-esque settings, as my overenthusiasm for the Wayfinder on that topic probably suggested.

I'm just going to imagine that ten page article on the spice trade in my head, now. I love that sort of setting flavor, not just for the fun of reading it, but for how useful it is in setting up encounters.

There's only so many chosen-randomly-in-a-panic-turnip caravans one can guard before the players ask, 'Why is every country shipping turnips to every other country? Are they like fruitcake, the gift that keeps on regifting?'

Knowing what sort of farmers will need your protection from ankhegs, or what sort of things are in the barrels you'll be setting on fire and throwing at the gnolls (or overboard, to lighten the load/appease the dragon turtle), is useful game information! :)

In one of the PaizoCon seminars that I listened to via KnowDirection, someone mentions that there will be a witch archetype with sand and elemental powers in this book. I for one will be happy to learn more about Pathfinder's official rules for sandwitches.

I am interested to see where this goes. The study of Islam is one of my interests so I will likely be reading these new entries with a critical eye looking for similarities and sources of inspiration. All in all I think this is a good thing.

Sarenite Sufism would be a pretty cool idea to explore. "Asmodeus wasn't such a bad guy!"

Official Pathfinder rules for sandwhiches, exactly what we need :D

As a not directly Inner Sea book, this gets a lot of attention from me and i do have some higher hopes for it.
It sounds pretty interesting so far.

I have to say, together with the magic item mastery feats though new magic carpets and rules for them could be a very cool thing, especially for everyone who doesn´t get to cast fly on herself.
Spring attacks from magic carpets for rogues please as well as other shenanigans!


I love sandy witches;)

Keleshite culture is more based on pre-Islamic Persia/ancient Mesopotamia than the Islamic Middle East, so I wouldn't expect to see too many parallels, especially since with the Cult of the Dawnflower being a sometimes-violent offshoot of mainline Sarenism, we didn't want to draw parallels between Sarenism and modern-day Islam.

Sarenism bears some similarities to all three Abrahamic religions in that it's a faith from east of the Inner Sea region that's becoming increasingly popular in the Inner Sea region, and to Christianity and Islam in being the state religion of an empire, and maybe to the Golden Age of Islam in Spain in that it's dominant while being tolerant of other faiths, but as far as the details, we try to avoid too many similarities.

That said, if you like mysticism, there's a few hints about mysticism, as well as an ascetic order, within the Sarenite church. :-)

Will there be a short mention of political and trade relations with it's neighboring states?

I believe Taldor in the north, World's Edge mountains/windswept wastes in the east and Zelshabbar in the south are the only ones bordering directly, but there are also the Isle of Kortos/Absalom, Osirion, Katapesh and Jalmeray across the sea.

Thx for your time.


Really looking forward to this book. We just left Qadira in the Wednesday night game I play in after getting through Feast of Dust. My current character is a native sylph wizard, and before him I played an ifrit swashbuckler also from the region. Naturally, I'm curious how much there will be on the elemental races in Qadira.

There is definitely cut material that I'm saving for a blog. :-) The map is going to show Qadira's eastern border (since the Inner Sea map cuts it off) but I don't believe it names anything east of that border.

East of that border is more of Kelesh, basically. We haven't worked out the names of all the other satrapies.

Is there much in the way of "broad strokes" information on how Kelesh functions? Or is this very tightly focussed on Qadira?

Project Manager

4 people marked this as a favorite.

There's a considerable amount of information about how Kelesh functions, the succession question in Kelesh, and so on. It's mostly framed in terms of either how Qadira is not typical of Kelesh, or how it affects Qadira, but given that we've generally treated Qadira as if it were just another nation, I thought it was important to focus on the fact that it has a sort of dual identity: it's both an Inner Sea nation, and a part of an empire we haven't touched on much.

There are also new ethnicities, and commentary about some of their religious beliefs.

Qadira + new local deities, ethnicities? Oh man... this book will be awesome

It's also cool to hear that the Keleshites take a bit of inspiration from Zoroastrian Persia, it's not something I've seen done in a fantasy setting before.

Very keen to find out what the new ethnicities might be. I'm guessing it isn't something Turkic since we've got the Kara for that now. Maybe something inspired by ancient Caucasian peoples (like Armenians and Georgians) or the Scythians? (whom were the main inspiration for the mythical Amazons since they reputedly had many female warriors among their ranks). Either way, no doubt it will be something quite interesting and I hope also there will be some interesting demihuman/humanoid cultures & societies in Qadira as well. :)
