Rolth in Pathfinder #9


Curse of the Crimson Throne

Dark Archive

Wasn't Rolth going to appear in pathfinder #9? In his entry in PF #8 seems to imply that if Rolth escapes succesfully from the PCs they haven't seen the last from him. But I didn't find any sidebar or text refered to Rolth in PF#9 (perhaps I have missed it?).

Were some plans to add him, but were cut by the edition, or we can wait for him to appear in following PF of the Crimsom Throne?

If you do a search for his name, you'll come across another thread where James says that it either got cut, or just didn't fit. He does give suggestions in that thread thoguh

Originally, yeah... but we didn't have room and there wasn't really a logical place to fit him in anyway. The assumption is that Rolth gets killed in Pathfinder 8 anyway. If he escapes, his continuing goal should probably transform into REVENGE; he's driven by a need to stalk and attack the PCs at this point, and there's no real way for a pre-made adventure to predict HOW that'll pan out. Maybe he turns into a creepy stalker. Maybe he joins forces with the Arkonas. Maybe he sides up with Pilts Swastel. Maybe he starts up a brand NEW group to antagonize the PCs. Maybe he hires himself out to the Gray Maidens or the Red Mantis. He doesn't have an official role to play beyond Pathfinder 8, so you can do anything you want with him, really, without worrying that we'll give him a contradictory role later on.

Great, I was just wondering, really I like some of the concepts behind Rolth and his crazy girlfriend, (that could be said also of almost every "named " NPC in Pathfinder. Chicos (and gals) You really rock making interesting NPCs. Thanks for your input James (and I will start a search next time to see if anybody else has openned a similar topic ).
