The kings and queens of Korvosa have long ruled under the shadow of the Curse of the Crimson Throne—an infamous superstition claiming that no monarch of the city of Korvosa shall ever die of old age or produce an heir. Whether or not there is any truth to the legend of the curse, Korvosa's current king is but the latest victim to succumb to this foul legacy. Now, the metropolis teeters on the edge of anarchy, and it falls to a band of new heroes to save Korvosa from the greatest threat it has ever known! This softcover compilation presents the fan-favorite campaign for use with the Pathfinder Roleplaying Game First Edition, including new and revised content and nearly 500 pages packed with mayhem, excitement, and adventure!

The Curse of the Crimson Throne Pocket Edition contains:

  • All six chapters of the original Adventure Path, expanded and updated for use with the Pathfinder Roleplaying Game First Edition.
  • An in-depth gazetteer of the city of Korvosa as it exists under the rule of its new queen.
  • An array of new rules options for characters, ranging from campaign traits to spells to magic items.
  • An expansive appendix with statistics, descriptions, backgrounds, and rules support for the 12 most important NPCs in the campaign.
  • A bestiary featuring nine monsters from the original Adventure Path.
  • Dozens of new illustrations, never-before-seen characters, location maps, extensive new encounter locations, and more!

Sweet! I already have the regular sized edition but this will go nicely with my other CotCT.


Are any other APs slated to be pocket-erised? I know these things usually wait for the cart to follow the horse but still, just wiondering...

Wow, i wouldn't have thought that these hardcovers would receive the pocket edition treatment.
We just finished book 1 of the collection and will probably be in book 4 or 5 when this goes on sale, but i'll buy every PE.

Marco, how are you enjoying CotCT so far? I'm just GMing our final session of RotRL next week, and might do CotCT sometime next year.

Compared to Rise of the Runelords, which has a very basic storyline with not too many roleplaying opportunities in the later books as you are traveling around a lot, Crimson Throne is far superior, as it takes place in a much bigger city than Sandpoint (Korvosa).

Book 1 felt much more fun than book 1 of RotR (which is fine).
Now, i know the entire basic plot of CotCT and the structure is much better, with the main villain introduced early on, whereas in RotR people forgot until book 4 that they had once seen of image of him.
You also fight for higher stakes for your homecity, compared to only the opening battle in Sandpoint and the one in book 4.
Korvosa is more interesting than Sandpoint, because it is the bigger city in Varisia at the time and you can place more stories there, as npc levels run a lot higher.

Did you use the "Sandpoint, Light of the Lost Coast" campaign setting?
It wasn't out when i gmed it.

There is a campaign setting book for Korvosa, too. :-)

Rise of the Runelords is scheduled for February.

RotR and Crimson Throne are the only APs we have compiled into single editions thus far. Kingmaker is coming in hardcover next year, but it will likely be a while before we think about a pocket edition of that.


Some times patience is best.
