Gods Save the Queen

As the heroes return to Taldor, they discover that strange seeds have finally borne fruit—conspiracy has laid their patron low. They must now face the cunning secret society, the Immaculate Circle, and put an end to its immortal machinations, finding new enemies along their path. To finally set the world right and end the War for the Crown, the heroes must confront not one but six of Taldor's greatest emperors, resurrected from the past! Can the heroes survive, or will Taldor's past sins forever define its future?

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

  • "The Six-Legend Soul," a mind-bending Pathfinder RPG adventure for 16th-level characters, by Amber E. Scott.
  • Ways to continue your campaign, including a system to determine Eutropia's legacy based on decisions made by your heroes, by Crystal Frasier.
  • A look at six of Taldor's most famous emperors, including the legendary spirits they provide to mediums and feats useful for any hero, by Lyz Liddell.
  • An overview of the resolute Ulfen Guard, by Ron Lundeen.
  • A bestiary of powerful and dangerous creatures, including the terrifying phylacator kyton and the hubris-grown bramble throne, by Kate Baker, Jay Erickson, Tom Hansen, Aerick Lim, and Nathan Reinecke.

Some good, some bad, some ???

***( )( )

Important to keep reviews spoiler free so, I go into more detail in the GM thread for the book.

There is a nice mix of combat, intrigue, etc through the book. Three different sections, each with it's own focus. So, you see a lot of different play style opportunities here - perhaps more so than in other AP's.

The ending however, given previous volumes, left me a bit disappointed. I feel certain important issues brought up in earlier installments were pretty much hand-waved away with just a couple of throwaway sentences that reduced a complex political situation to...well, window dressing.

I don't think it was as strong a finish to the AP as it could have been as a result.


Great book to finish great AP

*****

Normally I would like to go into more detail, but as this is Intrigue focused AP I would like to avoid spoiling juicy stuff as much as possible. So I just say that while I was little afraid that final book would be more combat heavy than other books, I was glad to find it still has investigation and intrigue element to it. Where first book was socializing, second book was subterfuge, third book was just investigation in general, fourth book was infiltration, fifth book was detective work and politics, this book is part murder investigation part subterfuge, in specific to clear the path to your target. And even then, you can actually avoid final boss fight altogether with alternate way of solving the situation.

Basically, this book is packed with so much cool stuff in every part that I'm now little bit sad this AP is over :'D But yeah, great finish. Hopefully we have similar AP in 2e, I really loved how this AP focused on giving alternate ways to solve major conflicts than just plain combat

We're were gone for like five minutes and the moment we come back we find out the princess is dead, the whole nation we've been fighting for thinks we of all people killed her and now apparently six zombie emperors have come back from the dead to kill us...

I'm getting too old for this s%+&.

At that point its nice to have the players work hard to get things going, put time and effort into knowing their benefactor so when she gets her soul taken, the players actually feel the effect. the players have also just come back from axis, so the fact that they have come back from extra planar adventures to arrive back in the middle of this worst case scenario, they are likely not taking any nonsense from the society, the people thinking you killed the princess(likely because of some illusion used by the assasins), and when the emperors are raising hell, your more than willing to stomp on them. at that point, its kind of expected that things will get ugly.

and after all that... well your either going to retire nobly to a lavish lifestyle, or continue on to ensure the nation you spent so long working towards stays around. after all, cheliex is likely to try and kick new taldor while its down and outside forces are going to mess with them.

I really want to run this adventure path.

Updated with final product description and cover image!


Now, I don't mean to seem overly pessimistic regarding the leadership abilities of Princess Eutropia, but does seem that the villains got a point here. It stands to reason that, seeing as Taldor was founded slightly under 6 millenia ago, that there has been many so many rulers of the empire that the title of "Greatest Emperor(s) of Taldor" has some rather stiff competition. I am sure her qualities as a ruler are up to a high standard, but I don't know whether they are up to the "greatest-leader-in-the-six-thousand-year-long-history-of-one-of-the-greate st-empires-of-all-of-Golarion" standard, a criteria that her opposition meets by default.

Just my 2 CP, though.

Do note that even if they don't come back as undead abominations, the "greatest emperors" might have been sort of like irl great historical figures: Really horrible warmongers and otherwise not really good people who are respected just because they had notable achievements for their country

Maybe, but being a good person and being a good ruler often doesn't have much to do with each other.

Yeah, but being good ruler in your own age doesn't mean you would be good ruler in current age though.

Fair enough, but it will be interesting to see whether the AP addresses what the common folk think about the great hero-kings of old returning to lead in Taldor's hour of need. I can definitely see much of Eutropia's grassroot support dry up in response to this, as many of her former supporters flock to banners of the Legendary Emperors in the belief that they can restore Taldor to the halcyon days of yore. Seeing as they are the villains of the AP, I doubt that it would work out quite so well for them, but then I have the advantage of knowing who the PC's are supposed to stab to death and who they are supposed to help.

Though I guess that's part of the tragedy of this book. You have legitimised eutropia, worked hard to ensure that even among the outer planes she is cleared to rule. Only to have you return to have your patron slain, her ressurected brother possessed, and a secret society now trying to undo everything you had worked so hard to accomplish. And likely in order to fix this, you will have to kill carrius, who likely is but a pawn in this whole affair. What's worse is that there was little that could be done to avoid this, and yet it also feels like if you had been there to defend her, this may have never happened. But at the very least, your strong enough to ensure that this time, civil war will be avoided if possible.


I still think that picture is DAMN creepy.

This AP volume starts at level 16, which means the PCs should be level 19 at the end of the campaign. That's slightly higher than normal.


I think that was intentional, Marco since they wanted to cap this thing out at 20.

I thought that was for Return of the Runelords. Are you sure you're not mixing them up?


Could be!

It's the last module and high level advancement is always slower in AP's than at the lower levels. It will probably cap out at 18, with level 17 being the last active level and a level up after the final boss fight.

I'm happy Crystal is writing the article to wrap the whole thing up. Reading through it this has been my favorite AP to date.

The Playtest print stuff will drop around august 2nd for everyone (Amazon will probably ship it 1 or 2 days earlier to some lucky people), maybe probably even Skeld. ;-)

The pdfs will be available for everyone on august 2nd (if the servers don't crash).

So Skeld and some lucky subscribers should hopefully have some time until then to enlighten us about the "normal" july products. :-)

I'll shoot the first question:

-Will the pc's really only be level 17 at the end of the campaign (they start at 16) or will they be level 18, 19 or 20?
