The Age of Ashes Adventure Path concludes! The heroes have defeated the Scarlet Triad, but in doing so have learned a shocking truth—the Scarlet Triad has been financed all these years by the enigmatic ruler of the island nation of Hermea, the gold dragon Mengkare! After a devastating manifestation of a violent dragon god erupts from the portals the heroes have been using the entire campaign, they must travel to Hermea to confront Mengkare about the Scarlet Triad and find out what the gold dragon's plans actually are. Does he seek to save the world... or to end it in a devastating Age of Ashes?

Age of Ashes is the first Adventure Path using the brand new rules for the Pathfinder RPG. This sixth and final adventure is for 18th-level characters, and also includes a gazetteer of the utopian city of Promise, advice for GMs on how the events of this campaign can change the world, a wealth of new options for player characters to discover, and more than 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.

So we are up against Mengkare indeed! That suspicious cousin of mine. It will be interesting to known more about his country - a dragon ruled utopia - Promise.

"Broken Premises", now I get it! =D

... Wait, a manifestation of a god?

Well, the charred corpses fished out from around Hermea every now and then finally got vindicated!

Welp, the name finally got cleared up :D I was wondering what the heck was up with the name

I guess he decided to go full "I shall cleanse rest of the world but Hermea with fire and build upon new better humanity on ashes of old world, it shall be true utopia!" type villain

Dagnabbit :D

In retrospect, this explain the "Or convince them they are in wrong" comment from paizocon. I did have hard time remembering red dragon villains open to diplomacy

Is this adventure going to be the gnome-themed one? Or will the AP have gotten away from the theme of featuring one of the PC races as a theme by this point?

PF2 has six ancestries/races, so it would be strange for them not to follow through on that theme if they begin the adventure path with it.

The themes for the advetnures are just that—themes. I gave the themes to each author as a thing to guide the writing of the adventure, but that doesn't mean that these themes are overwhelming.

BUT for the curious, the themes are...

Spoiler:
1: Goblins
2: Elves
3: Halflings
4: Dwarves
5: Gnomes
6: Humans

That's going to dial the weirdness of Katapesh up.

I know the cover art we see here isn't final, but I notice the last few are missing any of the iconics. Can we expect that to change in the final versions?

Yes? Taking the first two volumes, which actually have the final cover, we can say the iconic characters are still going to make their appearance in each of the covers.

Ooh!!

Book 5 Ancestry:
Katapeshi Gnomes?? Are we finally going to Finderplain??? I might be entirely too excited to finally get to go there, especially in a higher-level adventure.

"Violent dragon god?"

Mengkare's in an alliance with Dahak?

Well, that's not good.

Exact details on how all this plays out will be in the AP, but suffice to say the brief summary above is NOT the whole story. It's a lot more complicated.

But you got the last line right; it's certainly not GOOD!

This is about as far from good as one can get without involving either the Hordes of the Abyss, or the ride of the Four Horsemen...

I'm so giddy. I guessed that Mengkare would be involved over a month ago.
