Delve the mountain deep!

When the first dwarves reached the surface of Golarion, they built enormous keeps as a monument to their legacy and to serve as their new home. The mightiest of these keeps was Highhelm, a Sky Citadel deep in the Five Kings Mountains. While other Sky Citadels have fallen since the Quest for Sky, Highhelm holds strong, serving as one of the major centers of dwarven culture.

Lost Omens Highhelm delves deep into the Emperor's Peak to present Highhelm in all its glory. This book details everyday life in the city, dwarven culture, and the various clans that influence the Sky Citadel. It also provides a full gazetteer of the city's layers and surroundings, each with adventuring locations and sites of intrigue suitable for a multitude of adventures. An included poster map presents Highhelm's layers in high detail and serves as an aid for campaigns centered on the dwarven city. Characters looking for new options can visit Highhelm for new equipment, ancestry feats, animal companions, and more!

Written by: Dan Cascone, Caryn DiMarco, Dana Ebert, Sen H.H.S., Michelle Jones, Stephanie Lundeen, Liane Merciel, Matt Morris, Dave Nelson, Nathan Reinecke, Mikhail Rekun, Erin Roberts, Owen K.C. Stephens, Andrew White, and Shan Wolf.

I wonder if any Azer might sneak into this - they're not technically dwarves, but their Bestiary writeup mentions some having arrived nearby as refugees recently. A timely inclusion with Rage of Elements around the corner!
I've always loved Azer! There's something about our stout burny bois that really calls to me. I've been building them as Ifrit-Dwarves, but a bespoke Ancestry/Heritage would be fun. Certainly more cultural information is welcome, too. The LO books have been some of my favorite gaming guides in several years.

The 2e Bestiary art for them is way too cute. I love them.

One wonders why they're explicitly *not* dwarves, given the resemblance and now their presence in FKM.

I think its similar to how majority of planar creature aren't "humans"

FWIW, the Pathfinder Wiki states of Angradd, "He also employs many azers, who forge weapons that his men wield in battle against fiends."

Also: Azers and Torag
"Priests of Torag can sometimes summon azers for short periods to assist them, and the god is said to be served by an azer diplomat named Ambassador Zurin."

So, the dwarven gods have connections to them. It makes one wonder. I also wonder what the Elemental Plane of Metal will add?

Please, don't do this to us... I can't wait for Rage of Elements' product page to be up, with it's official product description.

I suppose you already have the product cover, although it's too soon to show it to us. I'm also eager to see it, specially for the grown up Yoon, that I'm certain will be featured on it.

We are preparing too solicit Rage of Elements to distributors at the end of the month. I am waiting for a description and mock cover. I don't know any more than you do yet! :)


Oooh!

D'ya think Highhelm has embassies and/or ethnic neighborhood for other dwarven ethnicities?

There are more unannounced Adventure Paths than the two I'm super excited to talk about. And there are are more stories that deserve to be told than those as well!

We are starting to announce new products at the end of every month as they are solicited to to distributors 9 months ahead ahead of release. New products are added to the web store and we highlight featured products with media features and/or social media announcements of our own. July 2023 product announcements will occur this week. Highhelm is the most recent example. We may occasionally announce products earlier than that, such as at PaizoCon or Gen Con, at the CCO's discretion.

In anticipation of this one and Sky King's Tomb, I got curious about if Highhelm hosts any of the dwarven Rivethun spirit-talkers, and it turns out they do! The 1e Adventurer's Guide details the Smoldering Court, a "Rivethun monastery and nexus of spirit activity" that's a historic part of the city going back ages. There's also an interesting note that the Rivethun faith has spread to lots of non-dwarves, with the fascinating wording that it's grown "among humans, halflings, and especially half-orcs."

Fingers crossed Nenakari Ougor and her Smoldering Court make an appearance in this!

That sounds so good!

I'm really hoping that Highhelm has more stuff than just the Stalwart Defender (though I'm very stoked about this, as well). Been looking for Foehammer and Stoneheart and other popular dwarf goodies for quite a while now.

Pretty much none, I believe - they're presented as a Background in LOWG, but so devoid of context as to not say much at all. I'd be glad to see them get some 2e spotlight, between being a uniquely-Golarion dwarf thing, being fun trans representation, and being some of my best chances at playable Shamans

Agreed on all accounts, One of my favorite aspects of the setting.


Wikl this book discuss interactions with other dwarven kingdomz, i.e. the one fron Agr of Ashes?

Am I the only one that really wants to known what will the book following this one cover? Another one of the inner sea regions? Another continent? Yet another faction? Or maybe something along the lines of Lost Omens Legends? I can't wait to see the announcements for the next half of this year.

The official Paizo twitter account said to keep an eye out for something tomorrow afternoon.

It's worth remembering that Wargamer now has exclusive preview rights for certain Pathfinder things, also.

Meh, not exclusive. Some announcements are worth doing ourselves. Plus, if iO9, Polygon, or IGN want to compete for Wargamer's preview position, I'll let them. ;)

It is! Angradd, Bolka, Dranngvit, Folgrit, Grundinnar, Kols, Magrim, and Trudd each get a writeup and piece of art. There's also a fair amount on the dwarven pantheon as a collective.

Oh! I think this might be the last Lost Omens book that will release under the OGL?


I'm really looking forward to this book, I haven't seen much of the existing lore on dwarves in Golarion so it'll all be fresh for me :) Also a friendly reminder to the Marketing team to please update the LO Subscription so that we can start with this product!

I was really tempted to make a cleric of Magrim to play in the Abomination Vaults game I am in, but for some reason, probably my background, had to go with the Osirion pantheon.

Yes, Impossible Lands, and Firebrands are the two books currently available as options both of which I got through other means before realizing subscriptions existed.
