As the political scene in Taldor explodes into chaos, players take on the role of agents, advocates, and saboteurs working for Princess Eutropia to help secure her claim to the Imperial throne and prevent the Empire from collapsing in on itself in civil war. Along the way, the PCs must uncover hidden secrets of Taldor’s past—many deliberately hidden—and grow from relative nobodies to powerful politicians and spymasters in the deadliest political arena in the Inner Sea.
Crownfall (1 of 6): As Taldor's entire capital city gathers to celebrate, few realize that conspiracy and royal rivalries are about to shake the empire to its core! When a high-minded cabal of senators and nobles tries to steer the nation away from disaster, Emperor Stavian III orders a bloodbath in the senate halls, trapping neophyte spies inside layer upon layer of magical security. As tensions rise and the emperor falls, can the heroes escape the forgotten halls beneath the senate and save the heir to Taldor from an assassin's blade? And even then, can anyone prevent a civil war that will tear one of the Inner Sea's oldest nations apart at its rotting seams?
Songbird, Scion, Saboteur (2 of 6): The county of Meratt is Taldor in a microcosm: a once-glorious land left to decay by negligent nobles. But to help secure Princess Eutropia's bid for the throne, bold adventurers must now infiltrate her ancestral homeland and overthrow the corrupt Count Lotheed from within, gaining allies and solving problems left to fester far too long. Can they play idle noble by day and hero by night well enough to reverse the county's fortunes, or will the weight of history's sins be too crushing a burden?
The Twilight Child (3 of 6): Dark shadows haunt the trade city of Yanmass, spreading chaos even as the city's leaders debate which royal heir to support in the growing civil war. Their soldiers are vanishing, bandits attack without fear, and a mysterious plague of nightmares rattles the populace—are these troubles random, or part of a larger conspiracy? And what role do the mysterious Twilight Child and the cultlike following he has attracted play in the chaos?
City in the Lion's Eye (4 of 6): As the War for the Crown escalates, General Pythareus—Princess Eutropia's rival for the throne—plots to plunge the nation into war, threatening to kill thousands of people to rally others to him. From the fortress-city of Zimar, he commands the overwhelming army of Taldor, as well as one of the most ruthless spymasters the world has ever known. Even with the resources of the legendary Lion Blades to aid them, can the PCs hope to outmaneuver conspiracy and prevent the War for the Crown from becoming a war between nations, or will Taldor again descend into a thousand years of violence?
The Reaper's Right Hand (5 of 6): The War for the Crown has mutated into a war of mutually assured destruction that may tear all of Taldor down. To save the nation—and perhaps their own conscience—the heroes must slip their mortal bonds and find the First Emperor of Taldor in the infinite planar city of Axis. But things are not as they should be in the First Emperor's resplendent halls. Can the heroes save not just Taldor, but the legend who founded it, or will they discover the hard way that even a city of light casts long shadows?
The Six-Legend Soul (6 of 6): With the validity of the Stavian royal line confirmed, the heroes return to Taldor to discover horrible machinations transpired in their absence, and they must now face the cunning secret society, the Immaculate Circle, to recover the soul of their departed benefactor. But as they return triumphant, they find themselves not celebrated but hated, hunted, and accused of regicide. To set the world right and end the War for the Crown, the heroes must confront not one but six of Taldor's greatest emperors, resurrected from the past by equal parts malice and hubris!
