The newest Pathfinder Chronicles book takes a look at the River Kingdoms!

A couple of years ago, when the idea of building a new campaign setting was rattling around in Erik Mona's brain, one of the earliest ideas was the River Kingdoms, a loose coalition of small kingdoms nestled in an out-of-the-way place in the world. It wasn't too long before the idea for Pathfinder Chronicles: Guide to the River Kingdoms was hatched, complete with a veritable pantheon of famous authors. Originally, we hoped to get Gary Gygax and Dave Arneson to write a kingdom each, but unfortunately, those two luminaries were taken from us before this product made it onto the schedule. But we didn't slouch when it came to the authors we commissioned for this book! New York Times best selling authors China Miéville and Elaine Cunningham each penned a kingdom. RPG giants like Chris Pramas, John Wick, Colin McComb, Steve Kenson and Richard Pett stepped in to do some writing. Even last year's RPG Superstar final four, Neil Spicer, Eric Bailey, Kevin Carter, and Matthew Stinson cut their teeth on a kingdom each. And yours truly dusted off her keyboard and wrote her first contribution to a gaming product in almost 20 years, since I worked on Vampire: The Masquerade!

Stake your claim! In the anarchic hills and valleys of the River Kingdoms, all you own is what you can hold by force. Dozens of nations flourish in this land of outlaws and scoundrels, from high-walled city-states to tiny tribal enclaves, and any hero with strength and vision can claim a throne at the point of a sword. Here secretive druids protect ancient forests, and downtrodden refugees and exiles cast longing eyes toward lost homelands. Civilized sea monsters trapped far from the briny deep rub shoulders with legitimized assassins, and strange magic can pull a prosperous town in and out of time and space. With the constant rise and fall of bandit lords, there’s no limit to the power and prestige bold adventurers can find—though whether they can keep it is another story.

I'm buying this for use in my Kingmaker campaign anyway, but I'd almost buy it twice just to read China Mieville's kingdom submission.

I'm sure I'm not alone in this. :D

Yes, I didn't realize he had a hand in it until I saw the cover.


his entry is a little odd, even out of place, but certainly very interesting

To me, this may be my favorite Chronicles product yet. Its right there with Darkmoon Vale anyway
