The time has come for your opera's premiere, but when an unexpected disaster strikes, the adventuring producers are forced to become adventuring heroes once again, as they scramble to untangle and then stand against a nefarious plot. Can you ensure all your hard work in producing an opera pays off while simultaneously opposing the plans of a malevolent god?

Bring the House Down is a Pathfinder adventure for four 18th-level characters. This adventure concludes the Curtain Call Adventure Path, a three-part monthly campaign in which a group of adventurers help to produce an opera based on their own prior adventures while simultaneously facing a new threat that only the most powerful of heroes can stop. This adventure also reveals long-standing truths about one of Pathfinder's most secretive and mysterious gods, powerful magical items and artifacts to discover, and several strange and devastating new monsters fit to challenge the game's most powerful heroes!

Wasn’t expecting a full on god to show up on the cover of an AP. Like that’s a HUGE npc

Heh, yeah. I was pretty excited about being able to put one on the cover. As with all cover NPCs, that's not just a symbol. There's some Big Stuff happening in this Adventure Path!

Neatly explains why Book 3 wasn't announced alongside Books 1 and 2, too.

In other cover news, bearing in mind that "product images. . . are subject to change," we now have four iconics for Curtain Call: Seoni, Mios, Fumbus, and Jirelle.

Yeah. This Adventure Path's place in the meta-event of War of Immortals made it particularly tricky to give it a typical announcement. I'll for sure be chatting about it more once we get to Paizocon, and we'll have more blog posts about it later as well, but if anyone's got questions about this feel free to ask over in the Curtain Call forum here on the site. I'll be lurking there and will answer what I can (or want) to answer.

The iconics for Curtain Call are Lem, Mios, Fumbus, and Jirelle. Seoni would have been a good choice, but...

Lem is the bard, so he HAS to be in the opera Adventure Path.
Jirelle and Mios both look like they'd be rad on stage in an opera.
And Fumbus is there to ensure that the whimsy built into this Adventure Path is on point.

Can't wait for that forum to get made in a couple months - as someone whose group finished up Hell's Rebels with book 4 at level 12, I'll be very excited to get to talking about how best to bring that forward in to a sequel. (And I recall you considering thinking about advice for that in the players guide back in the book 1 thread).

Ended up not really putting all that much advice in there for that, but it's for sure a great way to do it if you want!

I just know Fumbus is going to nail the rare Goblin Aria.

Norgorber here is just looking so KICK ASS here.
I have NEVER been particularly excited about him, but here? Gosh I wanna fight him! Or at least see someone fight him. Feel like that would be an EPIC fight. (Well... I mean, yeah, he's a deity, but STILL. he looks OUT TO KILL.)

Big kudos to the artist.

So this AP and Triumph of the Tusk will feature Gorums death?

Triumph sounds like it happens afterwards, and will focus a bit more on the upheavals in the orc pantheon. It's about to lose two gods and gain one. Verex will become a Spawn of Rovagug, and Mahja Firehair has to kill one to ascend. I could be wrong, though. There have been simultaneous APs before (Hell's Rebels/Hell's Vengeance). This AP seems like it will have the death.

I feel like this AP might end right before the actual death, or maybe reveal Norgorber's involvement in the event, similarly how Prey For Death might show Achaekek's part of what I'm guessing is a rather ambitious collaboration of deicide. I thought War of Immortals might contain the scene itself; then again I have been very wrong before; would be one hell of a cliffhanger scene to conclude a level 20 AP

I am so excited about this article on Norgorber! We may finally learn about his background as a mortal. I can never get enough of him!!! Thank you Paizo.

How does this start at level 18 if the adventure page says it ends at 18?

The adventure starts at level 18 and ends at level 20. Not sure where it says it ends at level 18, but if it does say that, that's a typo.

There comes the reveal of the three evil halflings behind the curtains of Norgorber.

This is heresy. Everyone knows that there are four halflings.

And their names* are Blackfingers, Father Skinsaw, the Gray Master, and the Reaper of Reputation!

*-- the bit about erasing all knowledge of the original name went further than we realized.

I've long suspected that Norgorber was four people in a trenchcoat. Although it creates a troubling precedent, that an adventuring party can complete the Test of the Starstone together.

Less than a month, it turns out.


I was already excited (been wanting to do a theatrical adventure ever since the Council of Thieves) but now I am HYPED! Norgyborgy is one of my favorite deities in Lost Omens, so this is gonna be fun.

As revealed at PaizoCon, the death happens on screen (NOT in this AP ;))

More precisely, while the PCs don't get to interact directly with the death in Curtain Call...

Spoiler:
...it DOES take place during the Adventure Path. I won't say where or when, and the hidden plot of Curtain Call is significantly tied into the events of War of Immortals, and PCs who play in Curtain Call will be aware of this event happening from a standpoint of being on Golarion when it all goes down.

Prey For Death is much more of an "on screen" depiction of the actual death, but its effects and build up and aftermath are a part of Curtain Call, as well as for the next Adventure Path, Triumph of the Tusk, and to a lesser extent the one after that, Spore War.

Yeah my theory got debunked pretty succinctly during a panel; either way I can't wait for both products :-D
