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 was written by Luis Loza 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.

And they stick the landing

5/5

Part 1 of this volume is neat, but it's just a spree of combats.

Part 2 and 3 are an excellent climax to this adventure path. Extremely well-written and interesting. I know my players are going to love it.


One of the best AP parts finales

5/5

So uh, I managed to skip my reviews for books 4 and 5 I still intend to do but haven't because of being busy and tired, but this book was too much in my alley to not review right away.

So long story short without spoilers: Book contains intriging investigation, a deception and chance to redeem someone who thinks they are good while they are doing evil. And AP actually gives good reason for PCs to do latter besides just being goody good guys(I like being good good person, but pragmatic people need options too!) and not least of all being "this edition's rules mean they would actually be tough to defeat" :D Book does give good job of giving characters chances to learn their backstory and feel empathy for them.

There are great roleplaying moments through all the book until finale(yes even in part 3, its not just warming up to final boss fight at level 20) and mechanical options for level 20 by hermean training are also cool and actually really great. I also like idea of rare backgrounds unlocked by beating APs so we'll see if paizo does more of those :D

Interestingly, I think I noticed that Paizo has taken notice of conversations on forum about bad guy redemption, because beyond the campaign option raises the possibility that even if villain is redeemed, some people might want to punish them for their wrong doings and future for the villain seeking redemption is uncertain.

Promise article has some really chilling stuff to it.

And best if all, even in this AP Dahak is petty overgrown child capable of destroying worlds :D

Do I have any bad things to say? Eh there is picture of random pit fiend with new design for them, I much prefer 1e reptilian pit fiend design to one that gives them more human like face. Reptiles are cool! Stereotypical red devils with pitchforks not so much.

(also since there was conversation on forum about dcs being too high for calming down citizens and putting off fires compared to first book... I think its justified because of the apocalyptic storm going on you know :P)

What else... Jonivar was really cool character for me for some reason even if he was mostly for explanation of ritual and Inizra's love interest(I like Inizra a lot too!) and I'm glad Kyrion finally came back! Though if eel like we need whole NPC article for him because seriously, I want full write up detail on what makes Kyrion tick, sure we know his backstory and personality but I like that dragon :D There were also cool 1e AP callbacks, such as Mengkare hiring brine dragon twins to help with security once they heard of Karzoug coming back in Promise article and other stuff in adventure itself. I also liked the payoff to castle building downtime hobby of PCs.

Thank you :D


Woukd it be too much of a stretch to have the manifestation be colossal even if just to use my colossal red dragon mini?

*shrugs* 2e doesn't have colossal size category anymore, but then again colossal creatures were mostly just "at minimum 30 space square, but they can take any amount of squares, even 80 squares!"

As long as he fits through the tunnels there shouldn't be problem with that


That makes sense. Thank you.

IIRC, that description, at least the "minimum X but can be larger" part, applies to Gargantuan in PF2.


Interesting. I cant think of another place or AP where I could use my colossal red dragon miniature though

If it's the colossal red dragon "mini" I have on my shelf, I doubt it would fit on the map :D


I will just make space on the map by making the area is bit bigger :)

Historically it has been included in both versions of the download. For those of us who download single file, is this a permanent change going forward?

Nope, not a permanent change. Turns out that's just one of the details I somehow hadn't picked up on since I started uploading the PDFs. :)

I've packaged the Interactive Maps in the Single File download now, so you should be able to download it again at your leisure. Thanks for your understanding!

I answered your question in detail on a different AoA product thread. The short answer: "sanctioning is on our radar after we ensure production of society scenarios."
