Damnit, i did not believe a journal format could produce such a captivating and exciting story. Great job on this journal, i can only bow and wish my own writing where even remotely up to the standards set by the authors. :)

Great job!

Thanks TerraNova! It's encouraging to know the journal will get picked up even though it's tucked in behind an explosive adventure like "Edge of Anarchy".

I am glad you said authors (plural) because "The Burn Run" was definitely one of those cases where there were a lot of guys involved in the text. James Sutter in particular works to give Eando Kline his voice and personality. Also the original kernel for the idea behind the story comes from one of his earlier article's treatment on the Cinderlands. James Jacobs was also involved in building the storyline for this episode.

I look forward to learning what happens to Eando when he reaches the Hold of Belkzen.

Originally, i used the plural because i found most of the Pathfinder Journals quite good, and didn't want to limit myself - but it is interesting to glimpse into the process like this.

Great job once again - and thanks for the reply.

Great installment of the Journal, Michael! It is the first thing my wife and I read in each month's, eagerly awaited, issue of Pathfinder.

You know, I thought that the story was a fine tale. But.... I was MAJORLY disappointed that the whole puzzle-box/Hellknights storyline was abandoned. I hated the total lack of continuity, in story AND style. I've got nothing against the writers of that article (they really did a very good job), but the style and delivery seemed to be so different that it wasn't the same Pathfinder, it wasn't Eando to me. I want my Eando back! Shouldn't there still be Hellknights on his tail, or don't they do that?

The Hellknights don't do that. Once he's out of the city, they aren't as interested in him, to be honest; Hellknights are pretty narrow-sighted on some counts. Put another way: the Cinderlands are out of their jurisdiction.

The puzzle-box element might just end up playing a role in Curse of the Crimson Throne, though...


Okay I now I'm missing something great here. I have just recently subscribed to the adventure path CotCT so the only Pathfinder chronicle I have read is Burnt Run. How do I get the other stories. Do I need to go back and purchase the first Pathfinder AP? Or will there be a compilation of the Pathfinder Eando coming out sometime or somewhere else?

Eando's journals start in Pathfinder volume two. It looks like you don't need to read any of them in order to understand his story now though, since the last plot wrapped up in volume six and now he's off on a new adventure.

Hmm. I would agree with cthulhudarren – there was a disconnect with the demon box sub-plot. It was a different adventure for him and I think Eando’s that kind of guy - he’ll do the unexpected. I too am dying to know what’s inside the boxes. James’ post above is not the first hint I’ve received that there are plans afoot to reveal this secret so I will stay tuned. For me, the mystery component of the arc feels a bit like a season of Lost. What’s in the hatch? Where the heck is the compass taking Eando and why? Answers lead to more questions.

I’m not sure I agree the character wasn’t Eando, but I’m admittedly way too biased. Instead, I’ll just say that if the readers were able to notice a variance, then that speaks volumes about how Eando has quickly established himself as a distinctive character and that’s a really good thing. In a way, he’s the first Pathfinder and I like that he’s making a mark.

All I can say right now is that I have enjoyed the stories of Eando very much. However I "cannot" read them until I have them in front of me in print. I do enjoy this part of pathfinder and look forward to more. I was discouraged since the other story line seems to have been abandoned and I would love to here more but things keep moving and I am curious to see how things turn out.

NOTE: I am fairly intoxicated from St. Patty's Day as I type this so if it happens to be complete gibberish pay no attention.
