Apocalypse Rising
Too much like a movie title, I think the actual honorific is better.
Well I think what makes a nice movie title also makes a nice AP title. And I think it's different enough for Apocalypse Now!, too. It was, as I'm just recalling, different enough to become an episode title on Star Trek: Deep Space Nine but that's probably obscure enough not to be too obvious.

It's cool Zaister. :)

I was just kidding about cursing you, if he picks Apocalypse Rising it's not like I'm gonna wanna fight you or anything. No biggie. :)

Usher is sort of gentle I guess. Makes you think of a dude in a tuxedo (or a handsome musical artist) gently guiding you towards the end of the world. Maybe "Harbinger of the Apocalypse"? But so many syllables...

Nah, it's the Demon Lord's actual title. Don't get talked out what you like. :)

Are you sure? Deskari's writeup in Lords of Chaos, AP 18, and the Inner Sea World Guide refer to him as Lord of the Locust Host. Usher of the Apocalypse is certainly fitting though - I still like it.


Paizo Charter Superscriber; Pathfinder Companion, Pathfinder Accessories Subscriber; Starfinder Charter Superscriber

Well, the text about Deskari in Lords of Chaos starts out with

Quote:
Thought to be Pazuzu’s greatest son, Deskari is believed by many scholars to be the Usher of the Apocalypse.

True, it doesn't really read like a title, but it's capitalized. He's also referred to as this in the Gazetteer and Inner Sea World Guide.

Oooooh, a contest! Who will make it to the final five?

Not that no adventure path so far has actually featured a Golarion place name. (Skull & Shackles kind of does, but shackles is also a word and shackles are even featured in the logo for that AP.) So I think, titles with place names are out for the whole AP. Not for individual adventures though, and "Worldwound" is already in the name of the first adventure.

Why not then Final Crusade.

That's also one that's been kicked around a bit... but it's a little too close to "Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade" for me, plus also it's not necessarily going to be the Final Crusade (and certainly CALLING it that makes players think that).

Still... it's one name that's been on the short list for a bit...

Now I am curious which 4 you liked. :)

My first thought is Worldwound Legacy. To imply either what the Worldwound left after opening or to imply what the PC's will leave the world at the end of the AP. or both.
That's actually not a bad one... but it also repeats the word "Worldwound" from the first adventure. I'd really rather not repeat any words from the adventure titles.

You know you could go with Worldwound Legacy and then just change the first AP book name from The Worldwound Incursion to The Demonic Incursion or something along those lines. Not knowing if this is a incursion into the Worldwound or the Worldwound host doing a incursion into other lands makes it harder to think of a counter name. If it is the later the name could be changed to A Plague of Demons.

James is actually only asking for a name for the whole AP. I only mentioned renaming the first part cause he did like my AP suggestion but it was a bit like the first book. So was offering a suggestion to make my first AP name suggestion work.

Why not just drop the "blight" and have The Demon Crusades?

I really like the "Crusades" part, seems evocative of the AP's theme. Some of the historical crusades had other names other than "first" "second" "fifth" etc... The Second Crusades were the Kings' Crusade

Is it just me, or does The Burning Rift sound like a job for Preparation H?

Not sure if any of these will get used, but there are a lot of good metal band names here....

For the record, I love the The Final Crusade name. I didn't even match it to Indiana Jones until James mentioned it.

Silver Crusade

Another angle could be "The True Crusade" or something similar. Mendev always seemed to be painted in tarnished light, a very murky gray as opposed to the more purely idealistic Lastwall. All of the atrocities and abuses on the human side of things causes one to consider all of the Mendevian Crusades except maybe the first one to fall far short of shining examples of goodness in action.

From what's been said about this AP so far though, it sounds like it may promote heroes looking to buck that trend, being Mendevian Crusaders as they should be rather than how they often have been. Such heroes won't just be opposed to the demons of the Worldwound, but to the corruption and cruelties that have taken root amongst their own.

I have to admit, the idea of Iomedaean Inquisitors throwing the book at Burners has a lot of appeal. Paladins vs. Burners do as well. Heck, Barbarians vs. Burners.

...

I really hope we get to punch a Burner.

(I have to agree with some others here, that "Worldwound" or something like it should be in the AP title even if that means renaming the first chapter.)
