The Scarlet Triad—slavers at the center of a vast conspiracy—have been tracked to the Five Kings Mountains. There, in the subterranean city of Saggorak, the slavers have forged an alliance with a terrifying dragon. To stop them, the heroes must navigate a complex political landscape and perhaps make an alliance of their own with a dwarven king who's been dead for thousands of years! The Age of Ashes Adventure Path continues with Fires of the Haunted City, a complete adventure for 12th- to 14th-level characters.

Age of Ashes is the first Adventure Path using the brand new rules for the Pathfinder RPG. This fourth adventure is for 12th-level characters, and also includes a gazetteer of the dwarven city of Kovlar, a discussion of the evil dwarven god of toil—Droskar, and a wealth of new rules options for player characters to discover, along with 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.

Duergar & another Dragon!
Where is Kovlar located?
Could this be taking place in the "Five Kings Mountains" region?


Kovlar... Never heard of it. Might indeed be somewhere in the Five Kings Mountains, and the dragon could be a really powerful red one.

I can't wait to know more of the evil god Droskar, one of the gods I have been waiting to see the most.

It's almost like if there existed some Wiki about Golarion that has an article about the place.

But we need to figure out how to connect to that whole 'Internet' y
thing first ... any ideas?


Don't break the mystery...

Kovlar is a small dwarven city in Five Kings Mountains built in the tunnels and caverns at the southern outskirts of the fallen great city of Saggorak.

At least according the PathfinderWiki.

A Dragon in the Darklands, makes me think Shadow or Umbral Dragon, could be wrong though.

I wouldn't expect to see either of those in this AP, or the next one. I would think that they would skew very hard toward monsters already in the P2 Bestiary, since they were literally writing both at the same time.


I think it might be an Underworld dragon, but in any case, I'm always glad to explore more of the Five Kings region.

The product description says that this volume will include "more than half a dozen new monsters", so it's entirely possible that it will contain a new dragon.

Personally i think that where undead are involved, an umbral dragon makes a lot of sense.

James Jacobs said somewhere that no new "true dragons" will be in the Bestiaries sections of the AP volumes.

But keep in mind things can change between then and now and tomorrow.

And there are a lot of possible creatures of the dragon type that are not "true dragons".


Yeah I mean look at Elder Wyrm for example. You mean to tell me that's not a true dragon??

But in any case, looking forward to the bestiary sections in ALL of this AP.

Well...

Technically, the true dragon from PF1E aren't NEW true dragons. So... Any of those could be included, right?

The cover resolution is very low.
Also if you click in the Age of Ashes links at the top of the page, book 3 has two links to it's product page.
