The Worst in Others

As the War for the Crown escalates, General Pythareus—Princess Eutropia's rival for the throne—plots to plunge the nation into war, threatening to kill thousands of people to rally others to him. From the fortress-city of Zimar, he commands the overwhelming army of Taldor, as well as one of the most ruthless spymasters the world has ever known. Even with the resources of the legendary Lion Blades to aid them, can the PCs hope to outmaneuver conspiracy and prevent the War for the Crown from becoming a war between nations, or will Taldor again descend into a thousand years of violence?

This volume of Pathfinder Adventure Path continues the War for the Crown Adventure Path and includes:

  • "City in the Lion's Eye," a Pathfinder RPG adventure for 10th-level characters, by Mikko Kallio.
  • A gazetteer of the city of Zimar, the fortified heart of Taldor's military, by Mikko Kallio.
  • A profile of the Lion Blades, masters of disguise and the most feared spies of the Inner Sea, by Liz Smith.
  • Eight of the deadliest rakshasas found within the Inner Sea region for use as an adventure supplement or in any campaign, by Eleanor Ferron.
  • A collection of strange beasts that prowl southern Taldor, from the invulnerable chitikin to the immolating pyrogeist, by Mike Headley, Mikko Kallio, Joe Kondrak, and Kalervo Oikarinen.

I thought Mikko was slated to be the author for this one?


Mmm. I'm looking forward to more details about Zimar.


Even if the art isn't final, that's a really weird choice for a placeholder if there's no Tians involved in the events. Hopefully "one of the most ruthless spymasters the world has ever known" is not the so-cliche-even-parodies-cant-pull-it-off Asian assassin lady.

That's right, I wrote this one (and the placeholder cover does seem to have my name on it), while Mr. Pett wrote book 2. It was an honor to work with him and share ideas with him; he's a great author and person.

The placeholder art is from Inner Sea Intrigue, p. 36, and it depicts a Lion Blade agent. As the product description suggests, Lion Blades are featured in the adventure, so I think it makes sense to use that picture as a placeholder.

(Edited) The spymaster is most certainly not a Tien assassin lady.

I believe the saying is 'Aw shucks Mikko' and that goes both ways, a great team on this AP and it was indeed great fun to bounce ideas about. I think you lovely folks will be mightily pleased with it.

Mnaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaar!

The old dude with an axe? Should be Zimar's leader Maxillar Pythareus, one of Eutropia's rivals.
