The Bloody Burden of Aristocracy!

Formally inducted to the Blood Lords as recognition for their past victories, the player characters soon find that the dangers hidden in this prestigious role are as great as the rewards. The new aristocrats of Geb must fend off intrigues of their power-hungry peers, escort the priest-king of a subterranean ghoul nation, and quell a cannibalistic cult—all while investigating the plot to poison living residents across Geb and beyond. The mysterious mastermind behind this plot stalks the halls of power, where the characters now tread, and he knows that his enemies are closing in!

The Ghouls Hunger is a Pathfinder adventure for four less-than-good-hearted 11th-level characters. This adventure continues the Blood Lords Adventure Path, a six-part, monthly campaign in which the characters rise from skilled troubleshooters to join the Blood Lords who rule a land of the dead. The adventure also details the worship of Kabriri, the demon lord of ghouls, and presents numerous downtime activities for the newest Blood Lords to expand their authority. New items, feats, monsters, and more abound when The Ghouls Hunger.

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.

How many underground ghoul nations are there anyway now that I think about it?

Pretty sure it's THE underground ghoul nation, given the mention of priest-king.

(this is joke at me not knowing anything about darklands lore because I'm waiting for non 3.5 darklands book and never read that one. Aka I have no idea if reference is obvious or if there are lot of them x'D

Darklands is my biggest hole on pathfinder lore knowledge x'D)

Yessss becoming a member of local government!

Do not deprive yourself of all the good things that have been written about the Darklands of Golarion for years, whether in setting books or in adventures. The setting is edition-agnostic after all.

And now I wonder about the loot system for this AP :-(

The PCs should be "less-than-good-hearted," so I think the loot system will be ok.

Downtime mechanics for PCs in a position of power and state authority is a fun treat.

I take bribes and use them for the betterment of the living gebbite minority. Starting with myself.

And here is another idea for a PC in this AP :-)

These were revealed at Gen Con, I believe. Jessica Catalan has done some of my favorite 2e work; I’m so eager to see her handle an explosive finale for this, potentially involving Nex.

Has Nemret Noktoria even been mentioned in 2E yet?

I think so? We had a Darklands adventure in Extinction Cure so it might have come up or in one of the Lost Omens books.

Extinction Curse mentioned a cult of ghouls sworn to the empyreal lord Tanagaar who are fighting against it; it was in the backmatter on cults.

Here's hoping we learn more about Tanagaar's Arrows!

From the offices of Expectation Management, while I did put some fun Kortash Khain stuff in here (for example—he thinks of himself as too good to "breathe" surface air, so when he must speak, he does so via a ghoul head/torso he carries around to telepathically command it to talk for him, and calls this thing his "Voice"), the entire adventure is set in/under Mechitar. It doesn't go to Nemret Noktoria, and no significant Nemret Noktoria info is included. Maybe in some far future adventure though, if folks are interested!
