South of a forbidding range of mountain peaks lies a land of boundless resources and untold opportunity. The Mwangi Expanse has been home to an untold diversity of cultures and peoples since time immemorial, hosting powerful, isolated city states that have often paid little attention to their neighbors. Yet the turning tides of fortune have begun to usher in changes that are rippling across the world. As a band of scholars from an ancient university venture north to aid a disaster-torn Avistan. A revolution-forged nation seeks powerful allies against foreign aggression. An undead god, once a symbol of hope to his declining nation, now grows jealous enough to turn on his self-proclaimed kin. Whether you are a diplomat seeking leverage from the most difficult of positions, a spy seeking the subtlest hint of danger from your surroundings, a guardian hoping to protect your home and people, or a warrior striking back at tyrants both native and foreign, this guide to the Mwangi Expanse offers you the ultimate resource to explore a realm of magic, monsters, and intrigue!

Written by: Laura-Shay Adams, Mariam Ahmad, Jahmal Brown, Misha Bushyager, Alexandria Bustion, Duan Byrd, John Compton, Sarah Davis, Naomi Fritts, Sasha Laranoa Harving, Gabriel Hicks, TK Johnson, Michelle Jones, Joshua Kim, Travis Lionel, Ron Lundeen, Stephanie Lundeen, Hillary Moon Murphy, Lu Pellazar, Mikhail Rekun, Nate Wright, and Jabari Weathers

A good representation of an interesting region

5/5


just here to offset the guy 1- & 2-starring all the PF2E products

5/5


A joy to read

5/5

I love this thing. The lore for the different ethnic groups and ancestries in the Mwangi expanse is especially enjoyable to read. I really like the demon fighting orcs. Awesome flavor.

Whether you are running the Strength of Thousands adventure path (I also reccomend) or you want to run a campaign set in fantasy Africa, this book is a must have. Even if you don't want to do either of those things the art and lore in this book is interesting enough on its own that I believe it is worth having.


This is what a setting book should be

5/5

This is easily my favourite setting book and the only book in my collection that I've considered buying twice just to have a physical copy. The detailed information about the many different places and cultures in the region is well written and full of interesting adventure seeds, the art is brilliant, and the diverse cast of writers avoids the all-to-common RPG trope of "Europeans write about Africa, racism ensues". The region itself feels suitably diverse and varied as a result as well, and the people and cultures depicted feel real and believable.

We believe the Mwangi Expanse PDF is the right size for an art-heavy 300+ page book.

please see my post above. Is there going to be a corrected version of this pdf? my Chromebook really chugs trying to open 100MB+ pdfs, and this one doesn't need to be that size. Even the 600 page core rulebook is less than 100mb.

okay, I split the pdf, most pages are less than 1MB per page, but here are the offending pages:

130 is 17MB. It's a full color page, so it should be a larger size, but this is still more than it needs to be compared to other full color pages.
138 is 35MB, this is too large given what is on the page.
141 is 19MB, this is too large given what is on the page.
144 is 35MB, this is too large given what is on the page.

Likely the art assets for these were put in at full resolution and not compressed. I find it hard to believe no one has pointed this out and fixed it in the months its been out?

Weeks ago I asked Art to look at the file sizes of the books as one PDF and they were not aware of any issues. I'll send your posts to them and ask for a second look, given your specificity.

A question regarding the goloma: are these inspired by something in real world mythology, or are they Golarion originals?

Thank you, I appreciate your response and effort!

BTW, I apologize if my posts came off as rude or aggressive (as I reread them now, I see they may come off that way), the intention was to convey more like incredulous/surprised, I'm not mad or anything. I know you all have had a lot of stress the last couple months, I wouldn't want to contribute to that, even a tiny bit.

Thanks. I am told the scale of maps is determined by the Development team, not the Art team. Which seems to imply that the files are provided as is with no additional compression. The process is not my area of expertise and the company does not teach me what the process actually is. Thank you for the time you have put into your analysis.

If they are maps, I know they constantly get asked for higher resolution maps in the PDFs for VTTs users. :X

Might be one reason.

Yes, and we won't release PDFs at full print resolution (300 dpi) for piracy reasons. At least, that is the reason in my mind.

I recently started planning a Mwangi campaign but wanted to set it before the current date. I wasn't able to find much on the overthrow of the colonists in the Mwangi sourcebook, just a few lines her and there, was this covered in detail anywhere else, like a Society scenario ?

Silver Crusade

No, it happened offscreen between editions.

It happened in the year 4717 AR, if that helps.

Watch "Outcast & Outclassed - Pathfinder 2e Actual Play - A Strength of Thousands Playthrough" from WafflesMapleSyrup, set in the Mwangi Expanse, sponsored by our friends at Roll20.


I'm trying to geht the calendar in the chapter about Nantambu (Page 235) aligned with what I can find elsewhere.

It says that the first day is the spring equinox, which would be 20. Pharast in 4721.

Calender

So is the 20. Pharast equal to the added first day of the year that is mentioned in this sentence?
"These feast days are not part of any month, and an extra day is added at the new year." ?

If that is the case the 21. Pharast would be the feast day dedicated to Old-Mage Jatembe and ther 27. Pharast would be the feast day dedicated to venerating the ancestors. 28. Pharast would be the first day of the first month of the new year?


Pathfinder Rulebook Subscriber

I'm a little confused by Goloma comprehension. Do they just have trouble counting amounts visually, or do they also have difficulty processing it mentally? Like can they remember how many allies they do have in a party?
