The heroes bring their Circus of Wayward Wonders to the city of Escadar to capitalize on their newfound fame and skills. But old enemies lurk in the city, including the cruel Mistress Dusklight and her Celestial Menagerie. Investigating the looming xulgath threat in a shuttered temple to Aroden, the dead god of humanity, the heroes learn that all their foes are working together. The revelation forces them to enter the Celestial Menagerie to bring the evil ringmaster to justice.

"Legacy of the Lost God" is a Pathfinder adventure for four 5th-level characters. This adventure continues the Extinction Curse Adventure Path, a six-part, monthly campaign in which the heroes lead a traveling circus as they unravel a plot to eradicate all life from the islands of the Inner Sea. This adventure also includes information about catfolk of Golarion and the villainous xulgaths, as well as new monsters and circus-themed rules.

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 you fight another circus made up of celestial creatures in book 2?

Storywise "Age of Ashes" seems interesting to me, but so far neither book 1 nor 2 of "Extinction Curse" interest me, nor does battling Troglodytes.

This volume could be interesting for people interested in catfolk however.
Maybe it is possible to play one as part of the circus-troupe?

"This adventure also includes information about catfolk of Golarion and the villainous xulgaths."

Are we getting xulgaths as a playable race alongside the catfolk? *-*

I do think xulgaths are kinda underrated :D So yay for xulgath screentime

Playing a xulgath in this AP will probably be as inappropriate as playing a hobgoblin in Ironfang Invasion.

And of course this will become an issue again...

I do love cats, but I'm not really found of the catfolk. I hope 2E has a good approach on their appearance and lore.

Umm, but Carolina Eade's style is universal in all of her art

Like, only thing that makes her Catfolk's different physically from elf characters is that they have fur and ears <_<; So I'm bit confused about what you mean

Shush

Still unsure what you meant since her design for catfolk is pretty standard catgirl design, unless you mean the really flexible part? Or if you just wanted her to return to make new catfolk art piece?

Like, I'm pretty sure the thundercats styleish catfolk in Shattered Star was inspired by the bestiary art, but lot of people's comments on that version was that they preferred bestiary version. Its not really unlikely that fans of Carolina Eade's piece will not like any similar design done in other artstyles if the what they liked was her style in the first place.

Dark Archive

On side note, I'm pretty sure we are returning to catgirl catfolks because that is creative director's preference and they are using edition change as chance to redesign different designs, but I'mma not gonna be satisfied until I get mah cat people race back(heck this would refer one of my crimson throne party's members technically non canon.) :p So in other words, we better have multiple cat ancestries

Yes I want to see more of Eade's art, and her's was the first image of Pathfinder Catfolk I and a lot of others saw.

As for the variances between Catfolk I believe they've said they like having them all look different (Elder Scrolls does the same thing with Khajit) rather than just having one defined look, this would open up the avenue for Ancestry/Heritage options.

(The shush was a play on what the catfolk was doing in the pic but also because you claimed her's just look like elves with fur and cat ears)

Oh oki

I think JJ commented in one thread that saying the catfolk had different appearances was giving up and now they have chance to do it right this time <_<

(Well, she IS lithe like elves, though I guess their spines don't bend like that :p But yeah I admit on exaggerating there, I still suck in articulating and am not sure how to communicate the "I don't really know how her version of catfolk really differs from other humanlike cat people")

Well yeah, but they can't have her do every single catfolk art in the future. Thats kinda the thing what I articulated badly in the first place, I don't really see what makes the catfolk of her style more unique than elf of her style as well in way that other artists could replicate it.

I don't really know what to tell you if all you see is an elf there.

I like the expressions, the flexibility, the languidness.

Umm, ye kinda miss what I meant. I don't mean that catfolk looks like elf, I meant that the catfolk has lot of the same physical traits that all characters she draws have.

So if artist that wasn't her would have to design the same catfolk, what traits would be in both versions?

Anyway, I don't really like continuing this tangent because I really suck in articulating what I mean >_<;

Sorry, as for other artists designing the same traits, what I brought up, the expressions, the flexibility, and the languidness.

There was an illustration of a catfolk on the Character Options panel at PaizoCon and it didn't look like the "catgirl" style, but rather looked more like the Khajit from Elder Scrolls indeed.

Hmm, so either the curse of artists doing their own thing or maybe they changed their mind about changing the "varied appearances" thing

Unless that was old 1e art?

Perhaps Shawn Mendes will be on the next cover and they can sing Señorita. :)

Playing a xulgath in this AP will probably be as inappropriate as playing a hobgoblin in Ironfang Invasion.

And of course this will become an issue again...

This is absolutely true. But the difference is we had rules for playing hobgoblins when Ironfang Invasion was out, so it would be possible for someone to come to the AP with a hobgoblin character made entirely with Paizo rules.

We don't have rules for playing xulgaths (that is, troglodytes), and this adventure path won't provide them, so people are vanishingly unlikely to come into this with a xulgath character ready to play.

As with hobgoblins in Ironfang Invasion, paladins in Skull & Shackles, or other "off-message" character choices in our other APs, it's not impossible to play a xulgath in Extinction Curse, but it would require a whole lot of work by the GM and player.

I guess that mean fourth book's xulgath themed rules are something weirder than ancestries or that it got changed to something else during development? :'D

Rules can be lots of things! Items, spells, rituals, or anything else! We've never intended to provide xulgath ancestry rules in any volume of this AP, but we'll have plenty of goodies that heroes of any kind can use.
