A dream is never just a dream!

The gatewalkers’ quest for answers reaches its exciting conclusion when they return to the spooky town of Lepidstadt for a reunion with their cryptic employer, the eminent researcher Dr. Ritalson. The occasion turns sour, however, when the characters discover that matters at home have been far from quiet. The final leg of the party's quest to unravel their memory gaps and fulfill Sakuachi's destiny takes them to the Crown of the World, where ice-rimed temples, dream-devouring monsters, and ancient alien evils await.

Dreamers of the Nameless Spires is a Pathfinder adventure for four 8th-level characters. This adventure concludes the Gatewalkers Adventure Path, a three-part monthly campaign in which a team of paranormal investigators unravel the mystery behind a mass amnesic episode which left them with lost memories and strange powers. This adventure also includes an article about the mysterious elven goddess of twilight, Findeladlara; new rules options perfect for paranormalist adventurers; and strange new creatures to befriend or bedevil your players.

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.

I never expected follow-through on that detail about psychic Erutaki visiting ruins in the north, that's awesome!

Ruwido and the Crown of the World both pretty handily derail my theory that this is meant to be a tour of the Broken Lands, which is super exciting. I'm curious if this one sticks the landing! It sounds super neat.

Findledlara is always great. Here's hoping for some Ilverani goodness?

Well nobody expected North to mean "north pole" huh :D Nice to have finally return to crown of the world, while hungry storm from jade regent has issues as adventure the lore about crown of the world was fascinating and something that benefits from expansion and more adventure content

From the office of expectation management... Ruwido ended up not being a part of this adventure path. It didn't make sense for how the storyline developed, especially considering how the village was presented in Dave Gross's novel, Prince of Wolves (where the village was unnamed until it was given a name by Wes in Ruins of Fear). Instead, It's the town of Lepidstadt that plays a role here.

This one is also very much not a tour of the Broken Lands (although there's a bit of that in the previous adventure, never fear!).

Still... I'm doing my best to try to stick the landing on this one!

In the meantime, I'll see about getting the name change to Lepidstadt in the above text.

I have so many characters that I've made with ties to Lepidstadt so this makes me very happy.

James writing a spooky, alien-filled AP volume is great!

It does make it profoundly unlikely that Iron Gods 2 is anywhere on the horizon, though.

Me writing a spooky alien AP volume has no impact on how soon Iron Gods 2 or ANYTHING Numeria related might or might not get done, so don't worry about that.

I already was super keen on running this - now knowing there's a stopover in one of my favorite cities in Golarion, I just have to run it!

(I was also happy with Ruwido, to be fair. Love Ustalav.)

I'm very curious as to how the article will portray Findeladlara. Her alignment is set as CG, but the lore to date absolutely does not support that. She is very concerned with preserving elven culture, and she favours innovation over the creation of something new. That should put her as Neutral rather than Chaotic. She is also kinda racist, refusing non-elven followers (and the other elven gods explicitly disagree with her on this). That should put her as Neutral instead of Good, at best. It wouldn't be the first time that previously established lore has been invalidated, so I guess we will see.

It's an interesting paradox - she spurns non-elven followers, but her cult among the Ilverani are focused on helping non-elves. Very curious to see how they handle her, not least because my own Elf Psychic is likely to wind up a devotee of hers.
