The King is Dead, Long Live the Queen!

Korvosa is cursed that none of its monarchs shall ever die of old age or produce an heir. The metropolis teeters on the edge of anarchy. It needs heroes that can face down crime lords, rioting mobs, insane cultists, virulent plague, undead hordes, scheming devils, corrupt nobles, barbarian chieftains, and ancient and forgotten evils that seek to dominate and sacrifice the city.

This expansion to the popular cooperative Pathfinder Adventure Card Game pits 1 to 6 players against monsters, perils, and traps as you save the city of Korvosa from threats both ancient and new. Choose your character; build a deck of unique equipment, magic, and allies; and explore lethal locations as you journey through an exciting fantasy tale. As your adventures continue, your characters will add remarkable gear and breathtaking magic to their decks as they gain incredible powers, all of which they'll need to challenge more and more powerful threats.

This set includes the storybook and cards for the Curse of the Crimson Throne Adventure Path. It requires the Pathfinder Adventure Card Game Core Set and expands the maximum number of players to 6 for that set. You can supplement your experience with Character Decks, the Pathfinder Society Adventure Card Guild, and Pathfinder Adventure Card Game accessories (available separately).

The Pathfinder Adventure Card Game: Curse of the Crimson Throne Adventure Path includes:

  • 550 cards featuring a wide array of powerful weapons, magical spells, protective armors, versatile items, helpful allies, harrowing blessings, devoted supporters, and a base to help you face a host of vicious monsters, dangerous barriers, vile scourges, and perilous wildcards
  • 4 character pawns representing Hakon the skald, Kess the brawler, Quinn the investigator, and Varian the wizard
  • 1 48-page storybook featuring all 6 chapters of The Curse of the Crimson Throne Adventure Path

Who the hell is "Varian the Wizard"?
Has Ezren gotten too old for Pathfinder 2.O?

It's likely Varian Jeggare.

Ezren is likely to be the wizard in Dragons Demand (the new core set).

I can confirm that Ezren is in the Core set, and it is Varian Jeggare, who is a very different kind of Wizard, and also a graduate of Korvosa's Acadamae.

Is this the first instance of a character being introduced in an Adventure Path after they were used in a class/character deck?

Yes.

For those who don't know, Varian was introduced as a cohort in the organized play Adventure Path Season of the Righteous before he was introduced in the Pathfinder Tales Character Deck. Radovan has actually completed the circuit from cohort to character and back to cohort.


Nice! Looking forward to playing as Quinn (and would love to see a investigator deck with other investigator builds).

So are pawns a new thing, or is that the term that is used to describe the existing character cards that are just an image with flavour text on the back?

Standee pawns would be useful, and I know that many players have developed their own for use with PACG.

From what I've gathered, there will be standee pawns for the characters.


Loving the idea of a lengthy story book and character pawns~!


Does this contain the cards for all 6 chapters? I would not expect it to, but the description leaves me uncertain.

It' all 6 chapters in one box.

The existing characters from previous releases will all work with the new stuff? Will there be a conversion guide for the old terminology and text?
Thnaks!

It's the intention that the old stuff will work with the new stuff. I think they announced that the Core rulebook will have some conversion guide in it.

This is for the card game, not 2e.

I believe the card game is undergoing some changes as well. :-)

*nods*

The mention of "Core Rulebook" made me think it was for 2e.

Ah! I missed that! Good catch!

Oh, I wasn't thinking about that. Sorry if anyone got things in a mix :) But since this was a question about the adventure path box, I thought it was nice to refer to the core box rules. :)

Edit:
The mention that there will be brief conversion notes in the rulebook in this blog post.


Could we get some idea of the mechanics in this? Maybe not specific but general?

For example
Skull and Shackles: Ships, Plunder, Survival.
Mummy's Mask: Traders, Triggers, Curses.
Curse of the Crimson Throne: ???

Since Curse is in the title and plague is mentioned in the description I'm guessing scourges.
And the description focuses more on the types of NPCs then monsters so I'm guessing the Diplomacy skill will come up a lot.

So looking to the future do we know how often these are going to come out, like if we subscribe? So we've got the Core and 1st AP here in May, when does the next AP release, or is that unknown?
