Celebrate Paizo’s 20th Anniversary with a glorious new edition of Crown of the Kobold King, the epic original Pathfinder adventure! The town of Falcon’s Hollow is no stranger to peril, yet the danger growing in the dungeons below a nearby ruin pose a threat that only a new band of heroes can face. Ravenous undead, cunning kobolds, and sinister necromancers are but a few of the foes that shall soon menace the small lumber town, yet none are potentially as dangerous as the Kobold King himself!

This deluxe, 128-page hardcover gathers three classic Pathfinder adventures into one unforgettable compilation, expanding them into a mini-campaign and introducing a brand-new dungeon level for heroes to explore. Completely updated to Pathfinder Second Edition, the insidious Kobold King and his minions return to bedevil a new generation of adventurers! Will your heroes save the town of Falcon’s Hollow from the Kobold King, or are they doomed to become the king’s latest trophies?

The Crown of the Kobold King contains:

  • The original adventures Hollow’s Last Hope, Crown of the Kobold King, and Hungry are the Dead, all expanded and updated for use with Pathfinder Second Edition.
  • Over a hundred pages of adventure for 1st to 6th-level parties.
  • A full gazetteer of the lumber town of Falcon’s Hollow.
  • Fifteen new magic items and other new treasures to discover.
  • Eight classic monsters from the original adventures, all brand new to Pathfinder Second Edition.

This adventure can be used with the Pathfinder Flip-Mat: Crown of the Kobold King.

Excellent.


I am looking forward to this adventure, I have only been playing Pathfinder since 2019 with the release of PF 2E and really love the game and enjoy the Paizo Pathfinder and Starfinder books I own. I see there is many old adventures that people on these forums mention as having been a lot of fun to play (adventure paths from Paizo for D&D 3.5 and Pathfinder 1 E Pathfinder) and it is great to have an opportunity to see some of this stuff reprinted AND updated into 2E (I do not have 1E).

They are pretty amazing!

In short: undecided.

Longer answer: As I understand it Foundry VTT is focused on producing the the compilations. They have to balance this one, Kingmaker in October. Pathfinder Adventure Path: Fists of the Ruby Phoenix hardcover in January. So we are not yet sure what can be made, and by when, but we'll tell you when we know.

I will personally advocate for completing them all, eventually, if not by street date, because I think there will be room in the schedule to circle-back and make them.

Paizo is focused on producing the individual Adventure Path volumes, like Blood Lords. I think there are two separate workflows. So some of both are possible.

This gives me hope of others like Emerald Spire could be redone as well for 2e. <3

To clarify, those are the titles they have to consider. This is not an announcement that they will be producing Crown of the Kobold King.


Is this coming to Foundry VTT?

They have not decided yet.


I would totally be down for this sequel adventure if anyone decided to compile these adventures and update them using the 2e rules.

So I wanted to see if there was a way to pull Carnival of Tears, Revenge of the Kobold King, Realm of the Fellnight Queen, and Guardians of Dragon Fall into combined story that would serve as a sequel to the Crown of the Kobold King Anniversary Edition. Looking at the Fey eliminates included in Hollow’s Last Hope, I realized they planted some really good seeds for a bigger fey themed adventure.

The biggest issue was Guardians of Dragon Fall as that whole adventure was largely retconned and basically has to be rewritten. However, simply changing the theme from dragons to draconic fey really started to add a solid through line to the adventures. Plus, this allows a lot more of Guardians of Dragon Fall to be salvaged. Below is what I came up with.

Carnival of Tears (Level 7-8)
Relations with the Fey were already strained from the logging operations, but the release of a powerful burst of necromantic energy upset the local Fey beyond reason. They Fey of Darkmoon Vale have called out to the First World for Aid. An icy patron has heard that call and has set a plan in motion to avenge the troubled Fey. An icy herald rides to Darkmoon Vale to bring about cold revenge on Falcon’s Hollow.
Revenge of the Kobold King (Level 8-9)
They Fey are not the only ones seeking revenge. Given new life in undeath, the Kobold King has built an undead army and plans to conquer all of Darkmoon Vale. Can the heroes ally with the Fey of Falcon’s Hollow long enough to stop the forces of the Kobold King.
Realm of the Fellnight Queen (Level 10-11)
The heroes have gained Syntira, a powerful Nymph Queen, as their patron. As a “thank you?” for their assistance in defeating the undead forces of the Kobold King, she has tasked the heroes with investigating rumors of a dark and mysterious Fey arising in power in the Verduran Forest. Transported to the outskirts of the town of Bellis, what new dangers await the heroes in the forest’s shadows.
Guardians of Reaching Claw (Level 11-12) (aka Guardians of...

I just want to say a very grateful "Thank You" to everyone involved in bringing this 2e update to the Crown of the Kobold King series. These adventures were among the first I ran for my table when I was first introduced to Pathfinder and I had actually been contemplating updating the adventures (as well as a few of the other old modules) to 2e to run my first 2e campaign. I am happily awaiting the release of the anniversary edition and the chance to pit the might of the Kobold King up against a new squad of heroes!

This looks really fun and I am glad that I am ordering the map pack as well. I wish that Paizo would release map packs for their APs.

We've had requests like this often, but the cost would be too prohibitive to produce that many flip mats, and would put too many restraints on longer-form adventures due to the size limits of flip mats in the first place.

*imagining a flip mate version of Scarwall that takes like eight flipmats*

Requests for a 1-inch-per-square map of Scarwall is the first time I did the math ages ago, but let me re-check that real quick...

Spoiler:
Let's go with the largest sized flip mat we can produce, which is a map that's 30 squares by 46 squares, with each square being 5 feet. So a single version of our most enormous map can cover an area that's 150 feet by 230 feet. For the standard size flip mat, we can do an area that's 30 by 24 squares, so 150 feet by 120 feet.

The ground floor of Scarwall is an "L" shape on its side, so let's split that into two rectangles since we don't need to map a large section of lake.

The main section of Scarwall's ground floor measures about 430 feet by 250 feet. The guest wing section measures about 320 feet by 170 feet.

So to cover the bulk of the main section, we'd need two side-by-side of that largest flip mat (which would cover an area that's 460 feet by 300 feet. To cover the guest wing section, we'd need 1.5 of those maps, so let's switch down to the standard size flip mat, which lets us cover that area with two of those (a 300 foot by 240 foot area)... although we'd lose 20 feet 4 squares) on the sides, but that can be made up by the fact that the main section is 6 squares more than it needs to be.

Which means that to cover one floor of Scarwall, you'd need four flip mats. And since it'd be best for you to be able to put those all four down side-by-side, that means that the opposite side of the flip mat wouldn't be useful, so you're talking two regular flip mats and two enormous flip mats to cover the first level of Castle Scarwall. That would be akin to the cost of one multi-pack flip mat and two enormous ones—or something like $77.

We can publish the second floor of Scarwall on the back sides of those two enormous flipmats, and the third floor on the back of one of the regular flip mats, and the towers and roof on the back of the other flip mat.

Next you'd need the map of the caverns. That's another regular flip mat, so now the cost goes up by another 16 bucks—we're at $93 for this adventure. We could PROBABLY fit the Barbican on the back side of that one, but the upper floors of the barbican would be tricky—we might need to move one or both of those to the map that presents Scarwall's towers and roofs.

So in all, you'd have a product that's just shy of $100 to cover one voulme of six in Curse of the Crimson Throne. It's not a big stretch of the imagination to assume that you'd have to spend $600 to get the maps for the entire Adventure Path.

And it's more than just a gut feeling that most folks wouldn't want to spend a hundred bucks a month to get the maps to cover their Adventure Path volumes—it's the added logistics on our side as well, where we'd have to ship and warehouse and move and handle a 500% increase to our regular flip mat work... and that doesn't even touch the impact it would have on the art and cartography side of things having to produce maps at such a larger scale.

I'd be quite happy buying mini-scale quality JPGs for the AP maps. I would either use them on the TV I have on my table, or for more epic encounters take the file to a print shop and have a custom map printed, which is what I have been doing for the one-shots (which are excellent, by the way).

I commissioned a guy to make all the maps in Inkarnate for me. I'm fairly certain he'll post them at some point to his Patreon, so I'll link them when that happens.
