Get ready to shine your badge and report for duty—the Agents of Edgewatch Adventure Path begins! In this thrilling new Pathfinder campaign, players assume the role of fresh recruits of the Edgewatch, the newest division of Absalom's city watch. Tasked with fighting crime during this year's Radiant Festival—a grand centennial gathering of exhibitors and wonders from around the world that this year celebrates the grand reopening of Absalom's treacherous Precipice Quarter, long a ruined haven of monsters and criminals. Soon after taking on the new beat, the detectives learn that the fair has attracted not only cutpurses and vandals, but also poisoners, ransomers, and even a sadistic serial murderer, and it's up to the Agents of Edgewatch to crack the case and bring these villains to justice!

“Devil at the Dreaming Palace,” by fan-favorite author James L. Sutter, is a Pathfinder adventure for four 1st-level characters. The adventure kicks off the Agents of Edgewatch Adventure Path, in which the heroes join the city watch to solve a series of crimes across Absalom, the City of Lost Omens, before the crooks can pull off the ultimate heist! This volume also includes an in-depth gazetteer of Absalom's Radiant Festival, thematically appropriate new monsters, and new rules designed to support the Agents of Edgewatch campaign!

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.

Are we there yet? Are we there yet? ARE WE THERE YET?!

This may be the most excited I've been about an adventure path since Strange Aeons, and I absolutely love these very specific concepts the two latest adventure paths have presented (detectives and circus members).

I didn't know that there was an upcoming City Watch based campaign, which is a dream campaign concept I've wanted to run for years. This is incredible.

Just to confirm that I have not been misled by unconfirmed rumors -- This is the adventure path where you can advance all the way from 1st to 20th level without ever leaving Absalom City, correct?


Pathfinder Card Game, Companion, Starfinder Adventure Path, Starfinder Roleplaying Game, Starfinder Society Subscriber; Pathfinder Roleplaying Game Charter Superscriber

REALLY looking forward to this!

That was the plan that was announced at Gencon (since the books aren't to the printer I expect that Paizo wouldn't be willing to say absolutely now in case there was some plot requirement that forced you out)

Many years ago, I proffered the idea of doing a CSI Absalom adventure path. Now, all these years later, I am thrilled to finally see this being done. It will be my first full-fledge PF2 adventure path and I can't wait!

In the Precipice Quarter criminal justice system, the people are represented by two separate but equally important groups: the Edgewatch, who investigate crime; and the Pharasmins, who bury the offenders.

These are their stories.


And I'm already planning to turn maps black and white so I can run this in noir style. Anybody know someone who does jazz on their lute for background music?

Lisa, I can't wait to see what you have come up with! And the first module is written by The Magnificently Scroundelous James "the Lip" Sutter. Fantastic! :)


Pathfinder Adventure Path, Lost Omens, Rulebook, Starfinder Roleplaying Game Subscriber

Yes! I've been wanting something like this for a very long time.


My players and I were hooked when it was first announced and its getting closer!!!

Ha Ha, CAN'T WAIT!!

I do hope there is a quest or two that could take the party out of the city as an optional choice please :)

So I just realized, where the heck THIS character art is from? Just like with Extinction Curse's part 6's placeholder art, I have no idea where the character art is from in this one either ._.;

He's from the Villain Codex, p.204. I have no idea about the other one.

Ah I see. Villain Codex is cool book, but I use it relatively rarely so I don't remember all the pictures that well :'D

The background art is also from the Villain Codex. It's the introduction piece for the Savage Marauders section on page 174.

We'll have dhampir releasing in time for this.
Homebrew werewolf-lite should be manageable.
Adopted dwarf is covered, and can be done at first level on a human.
Trolls… that'll be tricky.
Nobby Nobbs is definitely a unique homebrew ancestry.

(That is to say, I'm looking forward to Commander Vimes of the City Watch, The Adventure Path.)

We're going to have blackscaled vigilante investigator kobolds releasing in time for this!

Diligent police kobold by day, cowled caped-crusader kobold by night!

I can see the bat-signal on the walls of the Starstone Cathedral already...

This will be my first GM module and making old school by way of the movie " Police Academy ". I mean using the soundtrack , including the Blue Oyster and using the characters . For fun, I will use movies and TV shows characters (Kojak , Police Squad , Colombo , Dirty Harry , Lethal Weapon , , Die Hard , etc ). I guess I shown my age with my references.
