Which products support Arabian-themed adventures?


Lost Omens Products


Aside from Qadira: Gateway to the East, the Legacy of Fire AP, and, of course, the Campaign Setting book, which products have material that support campaigns with an Arabian-theme?

Silver Crusade

DARK MARKETS!

Get it get it get it get it

The nearby country of Osirion is fine too, if you want to mix it up with exotic Ancient Egypt a bit.


Is this only for Paizo made products? There are a few other options out there beyond just Official Pathfinder.

I would have to second Dark markets by the way.

Shadow Lodge

Yup.

The only three products I can think of are as you mentioned: Qadira: Gateway to the East, and The Legacy of Fire AP. In addition to that, as has already been mentioned the third source would be Dark Markets - The Guide to Katapesh.

Like Tales of the Caliphate Nights for example, which while made for True20 is still convertable and rich with non-mechanics stuff to mine.

There might be some more Pathfinder Society Modules that have stuff about the "Arabian" flavored regions of Golarion, but I've no clue which to suggest.

Is it revealing that a Tian Xia AP is supposed to require extensive sourcebooks, new classes and/or archetypes, a sensitive, sophisticated handling of the rich variety of cultures, blha, blah, blah...?

Meanwhile Legacy Of Fire just needed one companion and one chronicles book. The Dervish gets one feat, would ninja/samurai/wu-jen fans accept just one feat? Have Paizo even considered keeping it down to that?

Because 'Arabia' is so much more straightforward than the 'Orient' right. Right?

This isn't intended as criticism of Paizo, more an observation of how cultural relationships influence our expectations. As a Brit I think I know more about 'Arabia' than the 'Orient' but the mostly American nature of Paizo/the fanbase means that the close-cultural relationship with Japan since the Second Word War influences what kind of setting books we get in a whole host of ways.

I don't know if I'm asking for an awesome, hardback 'Heart of the Desert' sourcebook or asking why we need so much extra fuss for Jade Regent.


Thanks for the replies. Dark Markets looks good, I'll pick that up.

I did have Paizo products specifically in mind, yes. I've got Tales of the Caliphate Nights, GURPS Arabian Nights, and all of the Al-Qadim products (and Dragon articles), but I like the flavour I've seen from Paizo so far, so I was wondering what else they had.

I wouldn't be surised to see Arabian themed stuff in Ultimate Magic/Combat, and I would be shocked if at some point they didn't do a World Guide for either Casmaron or more specifically Kelesh.


Wolfgang needs to stop hogging those 6 OD Arabian tales.
