The Age of Ashes Adventure Path continues! The heroes have clashed many times with the Scarlet Triad, and have defeated several lower-tier leaders within the slaver organization, but now the time is right to confront the evil slavers in their fortress! Yet the Scarlet Triad has the support of Katapesh, one of the largest cities in the land. Before the heroes can finish off the Triad, they must first find a way to ruin their reputation and erode the protection afforded by Katapesh's powerful Pactmasters. But what astonishing secret regarding the Scarlet Triad's true ruler awaits discovery beneath an ancient Red Pyramid?

Age of Ashes is the first Adventure Path using the brand new rules for the Pathfinder RPG. This fifth adventure is for 15th-level characters, and also includes an investigation of the magical elf gates that connect portals all over Golarion, an exploration of the mysterious rulers of the vast city of Katapesh, a wealth of new options for player characters to discover, and over half a dozen new monsters!

Each monthly full-color softcover Pathfinder Adventure Path volume contains an in-depth adventure scenario, stats for several new monsters, and support articles meant to give Game Masters additional material to expand their campaign. Pathfinder Adventure Path volumes use the Open Game License and work with both the Pathfinder RPG and the world’s oldest fantasy RPG.

Ya know, its kinda nice they are returning to Katapesh :'D The city was never really explored after Legacy of Fire, and that ap didn't get hardcover update... (I actually wanna play that one even though everyone nowadays cares only about kingmaker or second darkess updates)

Sounds like this adventure is the one that focuses on humanity. Is that right?

It's a solid theory. I can at least say that the adventure includes many humans and a whole lot of other fun stuff.

Aha, James noted afterward in a different thread what this volumes ancestry “theme” is.

Spoiler:

Each if the volumes had one of the Core Rulebook ancestries as a thematic inspiration—not a “Thou shalt use naught but these creatures” but rather a “This adventure deals with an area with many of these people, so be sure to incorporate several of them and play with their ancestral themes” idea. #149 is associated with gnomes, which is one reason why I’m the author for the volume; I find gnomes pretty dang cool. Katapesh was also the first region I became excited about in the Pathfinder setting, so this project’s been really fulfilling to work on.


I always wanted to know more about the Red Pyramid and any ties it might have to ancient Osirion.

Will this volume have a full article/gazetteer on Katapesh?

Judging from the current product description, the answer seems to be no.

Nope. We did an entire book on Katapesh, and it remains fully usable from the flavor side of things if you want to expand on this adventure though.
