For nearly 5,000 years, the great city of Absalom has stood at the center of the Inner Sea's culture, commerce, and prophecy. Now, with the death of the city's founder-god Aroden, the disappearance of the city's lord mayor, and newly launched attacks from some of its greatest foes, Absalom stands at the gateway to a new and uncertain destiny!

This lore-packed 296-page hardcover guide to the locations, denizens, and adventures of Pathfinder's most famous city is the largest Pathfinder city sourcebook to date, presenting a fascinating locale suitable for years of adventure! A huge 8-panel poster map of the city sets the scene in unprecedented detail, allowing your heroes to walk upon streets paved with centuries of history, following the steps of generations of questing heroes to chart a new path for the City at the Center of the World!

So when they say map, do they mean like a fold out map? Cause that would be great for some of my players.

Yes, it's a poster-sized map with eight panels a little smaller than a page. Similar to the poster map in the Inner Sea World Guide, for example.

Can you please make a larger poster map as a separate product?
It's nice to have a "small" one with the book, but this screams for a map folio with a really large map for use with the "Agents of Edgewater" campaign and for city adventures in general. ;-)

Will there be any new monsters, equipment, feats, or Archetypes in this book?

I'm just glad that in 2e the Skinsaw Cultists still rock that demented clown style :D

I am definitely looking forward to this book.


Glad its a 296 pages book, I think the smaller 136 or so pages hardcover would not be enough to make the setting's main city justice. Realy looking foward to this one!

The opponents Ezren and Merisiel are fighting in the streets of Absalom seem to have been upgraded from the picture from 1E.

Oooooh yes, The City At The Center Of The World is finally going to be, erm, a city at the center of the world.

I like poster maps. I'd like them even better if Paizo would sell them separately, and rolled. I know the shipping would be more, but I don't care. :-)

God I hope so, otherwise it would seem like a huge waste. For instance, this would be a great place to put the wave rider.

What would Rip Hunter's time ship be doing in Absalom?

So, ah, not to burst anyone's bubble, but do be aware that by the time a product has been publicly announced, about 98% of the writing is completed, and has been for months.

Publication pipelines are long.

Indeed, it is nice to dream. Also, I figure it doesn't hurt to mention all the fun stuff out there from earlier books.

It's great that this comes out 2 months before "Agents of Edgewatch" starts, so a GM can familiarize with the City before starting the campaign.

Still, i wish for a poster map folio for that campaign, because a big spoilerfree map for players and a spoilerfilled map for a GM is a must for a big city campaign.
