Worn With Woe I Be

The county of Meratt is Taldor in a microcosm: a once-glorious land left to decay by negligent nobles. But to help secure Princess Eutropia's bid for the throne, bold adventurers must now infiltrate her ancestral homeland and overthrow the corrupt Count Lotheed from within, gaining allies and solving problems left to fester far too long. Can they play idle noble by day and hero by night well enough to reverse the county's fortunes, or will the weight of history's sins be too crushing a burden?

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

  • "Songbird, Scion, Saboteur," a Pathfinder adventure for 4th-level characters, by Crystal Frasier and Richard Pett.
  • A gazetteer of the county of Meratt, a once-glorious country landscape rotting from within, by Amanda Hamon Kunz.
  • A cult of personality subsystem so PCs can cultivate their public images and put their renown to work for their benefit, by Linda Zayas-Palmer.
  • New rules for relics: magic items empowered by powerful historical events and improved by feeding their purpose, by Logan Bonner.
  • A bestiary of monsters ranging from the spell-retrieving galluvix to the eyeball-plucking lamp blighter, by Tim Akers, Brian Duckwitz, Troy Lavallee, and Patchen Mortimer.

Good follow up to Crownfall

***( )( )

I really wanted to like this chapter more than I do. There's tonnes of potential, and some really cool ideas. It feels though like the writers tried to cram just a little bit too much into it, and rushed the process as well. Too much content, and not enough info on how to manage it.

With the addition of cult of personality rules, rebuilding tasks, relic triumphs, and possibly including more robust rules from Ultimate Intrigue, it's going to get complicated really quickly. I was hoping for some suggestions on tying all the new rule systems together -- especially a suggested timeline with cult of personality, gaining influence and rebuilding potentially all in play at the same time. Additionally, the influence rules include waning influence if attempts aren't made each week. With travel being as much as two days each way to visit neighbouring nobles, it really cuts into the time the PCs have for the other cool parts of the adventure.

I would have given it four stars, but this chapter also has many more grammatical/proofing errors than is usual for a Paizo product.

Okay, I give in


This book broke my "Never review any adventure I haven't run first" rule :'D This book has too many things I like. Good foreshadowing, good intrigue, non lethal options, good relevant choices to pick from, potential to appease my guilty pleasure for sappy romances, mixture of horror and comedy(true love's kiss yo and the picture for "picnic") and management/building elements.

Majority of this book is players building up loyalty and resources until they can take over the manor, but if players do REALLY good job at it, they can do so without blood being shed at all :D You have no idea how I love it when book's main opponent can be taken down by convincing they were wrong and they should surrender.

Anyhoo, get this book if you:
1) Love good intrigue
2) Love interesting monsters and situations
3) Love good foreshadowing and mysteries
4) Wanted to see good moral choices
5) Love books that encourage creative solutions
6) Like to see Law vs Chaos dynamic being shown
7) Have guilty pleasure for romances and are glad when writer leaves option open for them
8) Love it when work shows multiple different styles of tone.
9) Have ever been wanted NPC give you "Okay, here is three doses of memory erasing poison if you f&$% things up roleplaying wise" style get out of jail card when you put foot into your mouth :D

If you want purely action and less roleplaying, I guess this isn't really for you?
