Could someone fill me in on why the Dead God's Hand has no estimated release date?


Adventures


I'm not totally up to speed on what's going on with Paizo, but I know that with the establishment of a union that the company is going through some growing pains. I also know that COVID seriously slowed down production and led to a lot of books being delayed, but as we can see given that Absalom: City of Lost Omens has finally been released that doesn't mean they've been shelved. So I was under the mistaken impression that the Dead God's Hand, an adventure I've been thinking about running and looking forward to for a while, would be coming out sometime soon, so I decided to check in and found out that it has no estimated release date. I totally understand that there could be many reasons as to why this would happen, and also understand if those reasons are private, but I'd like to be informed on what is going on if possible. There may be a preexisting thread, but given this website's search engine I wouldn't know where to find it. If someone could update me, that'd be appreciated.

Both the Absalom book and Dead God’s Hand were Erik Mona’s projects, announced to be released around the same time as the two Isle of Kortos APs. Things slipped pretty hard and the Absalom book had pretty significant scope creep, keeping Mona busy until relatively recently and keeping him away from the adventure.

EDIT: The last two pages of the discusison on the product page for Dead God’s Hand explain it all pretty well. It’s on indefinite hold, and sounds like they don’t necessarily expect a 2022 release; it may well be dead.


Well, that's disappointing. From what little I know of the plot, the Knights of the Aeon Star were supposed to play a prominent role in it, and I was liking the idea of getting a chance to see them in action. Oh, well. Not anyone's fault.

I sincerely hope it's not dead.

Nah, Aroden is definitely dead.

It's in the name and everything.
