Extinction Curse Adventure Path

Come one, come all! Humble performers become leaders of the Circus of Wayward Wonders when tragedy strikes. But as these heroes lead their motley band of performers and roustabouts around the Isle of Kortos, they uncover a sinister plot to exterminate life from the Starstone Isle. The dead god Aroden may be gone, but his legacy lives on, as do his old enemies who would destroy the wonders he raised from the sea. Spectacle meets savagery as the heroes strive to stop the Extinction Curse!

The Extinction Curse Adventure Path begins! The Circus of Wayward Wonders has just arrived in the remote town of Abberton, and the player characters are the stars of the show! When the ringmaster turns up dead, the fate of the traveling circus and its entertainers hangs in the balance, and the heroes must scramble to put on a successful show and find the killer—all at the same time! Investigations only lead to more questions, and the heroes find themselves center stage in a dangerous, prehistoric plot that threatens not just Abberton, but every inhabitant of the Starstone Isles!

"The Show Must Go On" is a Pathfinder Second Edition adventure for four 1st-level characters. This adventure begins the Extinction Curse Adventure Path, a six-part, monthly campaign in which the heroes lead a traveling circus as they unravel a plot to eradicate all life from the Starstone Isles at the heart of the Inner Sea. The adventure also includes advice on how to run a traveling circus, new circus-themed rules, and a menagerie of monsters both wondrous and wicked.

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.

What is this placeholder art from? O_o Like, I recognize the Strange Aeons moss art, but not the character art

That's actually the anima mundi from Rise of New Thassilon.

Yes, that is the joke, because anima mondi is basically scary moss :p I was trying to avoid specific spoilers

I will be sorely disappointed if the killer is not a bard called Freddie Quicksilver! ;)

Starstone Isles, in the plural?

It sounds like something dire happened to the isle of Kortos (... it probably has something to do with the end of Tyrant's Grasp, now that I think of it).

Isn't there another island by Kortos? Maybe they're referring to both.

Correct! The Isle of Erran.

Collectively, the Isles of Kortos & Erran are the Starstone Isles.

That said, I don't know how the final part of the Tyrant's Grasp AP ends, so... who knows? Maybe the number of isles gets expanded in P2...?
<shrug>

Carry on,

IN any case, first in Council of Thieves, PCs got to be actors. Now they get to run a circus. Maybe next edition, they'll get to run an entire brothel! ;)

This sounds far more entertaining than the Hells Knight AP coming out :) Pity it comes after the story for the first part sounds most amusing

Age of Ashes isn’t a Hellknight AP, the first adventure just takes place in one of their citadels.


Yeah Ages of Ages has about much Hellknights stuff as Curse of the Crimson Throne.

Also still think Dance Hall/Brothel works.

You guys have got to get Logue and Pett on this one. They did some of the original horror circuses and theaters in Golarion.
