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

Superb African-themed fantasy gazetteer

5/5

I bought this product because I didn't have any African-themed fantasy gazetteer in my collection. It is a superb product with incredibile art in particular. Very recommended.


A Strong Treatment of My Favorite Continent

5/5

There's a lot to like in this book: the content for the elves and dwarves, the demon-hunting orcs of Matakali, the Corsair Wars, Veridian. My only real complaint is that the new cities and locales introduced (Matakali, Cloudspire, etc) are completely ignored on the maps--it looks like 1st edition maps were reused, which is disappointing.

I would also have liked to see material at least alluding to the southern half of Garund, which has been a glaring oversight for years now. But these are minor quibbles and not enough to warrant losing a star.


1/5


Probably my favourite setting book ever

5/5

This book gives a vibrant look at the various cultures, religions and regions within the Mwangi Expanse and provides plenty of information for both characters coming from the region and campaigns in the region.

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?
