Dawn of a New Age

Fires burn atop the ruined citadel on Hellknight Hill, sending plumes of red smoke into the air that could be a call for help. Within the old keep, strange invaders from a distant land, mysterious long-lost ruins, and the machinations of a shadowy organization await discovery. Something dire is building toward an apocalyptic event, and it falls to your characters to stop the end before it begins. The Age of Ashes Adventure Path begins with "Hellknight Hill"—a complete adventure for 1st- to 4th-level characters.

On a scale of 1 to a steamer trunk full, how many dragon miniatures should I have to run this AP?

In fact, people will all see when part 1 gets released in 2019, since we've got a pretty detailed GM supplement in that volume to help folks run the game.

January, unless they’re doing a double month.

I think they are shifting the start of APs so that they are now July – December and January – June. Technically, the Second Edition products are part of the July releases, with only their street date delayed by one week.

They are. Hellknight Hill comes out at the same time as Midwives to Death.

I was referring to a double for Age of Ashes.

AGE OF ASHES: momentary intended release dates:

1: Hellknight Hill (august 1st)
2: Cult of Cinders (august 28th)
3: Tomorrow must burn (sept 18th)
4: Fires of the Haunted City (oct 16th)
5: Against the scarlet Triad (nov 13th)
6: Broken Promises (december 11th)

I expect the august volumes to be punctual.
The others could maybe move a week back.

Street date for Paizo products is usually the last Wednesday of the month, so more likely:

Part 1: Hellknight Hill – August 1 (exception, July product)
Part 2: Cult of Cinders – August 28
Part 3: Tomorrow must burn – September 25
Part 4: Fires of the Haunted City – October 30
Part 5: Against the scarlet Triad – November 27
Part 6: Broken Promises – December 26 (possibly a week later due to Christmas)

Based on past experience, the street dates for November and December should come before the Thanksgiving and Christmas holidays, so my best guess would be November 20th and December 19th for the last two.

Ah, that makes sense. Sorry, as a European, I didn't even have Thanksgiving on my radar.


Thank you James Jacobs for reminding me that each opener will have a short summary of each other book.

Also I thought it was 2020 because I wasn't sure if there was enough time left in 2019 for Paizo to fit in ALL of this before the start of 2020.

Starting with Age of Ashes, each part 1 of our Adventure Paths will have more than a "short summary" of the rest of the campaign, but will have several pages of additional information and notes to help GMs prepare.

This is excellent news as Age of Ashes will be the first Adventure Path that I will run as it is published.

Will this one go to 20th lvl?

Apparently, the answer to that question is supposed to be "Yes" for the duration of 2nd edition.


All APs have been said to be envisioned to go from 1st to 20th level starting with Age of Ashes, a different pattern will be an exception in PF2E.

So not only will PCs get to go the distance, GMs will now get MORE info so they can make a clearer determination of what each chapter will entail.

Good move Paizo guys. Good move.

Starfinder has sections of their AP books dedicated to lore that -could- be valuable to lore nerds like myself. If I were a player, I would be very tempted to purchase the Starfinder AP books and thumb through the backmatter.

Is this the case for the Pathfinder AP books as well? If it's just flavor to help a GM, I'm skipping it as a player. But if it's interesting lore and helps set the tone or provide tangential details... then I will probably buy them to use backmatter to add color for successful bardic knowledge rolls, for example.

We got the updated product descriptions for the last four volumes, so could we get the descriptions for the first two, please? I'm really anxious to know the articles we are getting in those.

I think helping the goblins is going to be a nice inversion and callback to Burnt Offerings.
