Pathfinder: Civil War Looms In Crownfall

A kingdom on the verge of civil war, a plot to assassinate the king. This and more in Crownfall.

The next Pathfinder Adventure Path promises action and intrigue galore–but what else would you expect from spewing titled the War for the Crown. That’s a positively Shakespearean premise, so be sure to look for a comedic gravedigger or couple of messengers to have some mistaken identities. At any rate, the whole thing kicks off with an assassination attempt, and a race though the undercroft of Taldor’s Senate.

Everyone Loves a Party

As Taldor’s entire capital city gathers to celebrate, few realize that conspiracy and royal rivalries are about to shake the empire to its core! When a high-minded cabal of senators and nobles tries to steer the nation away from disaster, Emperor Stavian III orders a bloodbath in the senate halls, trapping neophyte spies inside layer upon layer of magical security. As tensions rise and the emperor falls, can the heroes escape the forgotten halls beneath the senate and save the heir to Taldor from an assassin’s blade? And even then, can anyone prevent a civil war that will tear one of the Inner Sea’s oldest nations apart at its rotting seams?

This volume of Pathfinder Adventure Path launches the War for the Crown Adventure Path and includes:

  • “Crownfall,” a Pathfinder adventure for 1st-level characters, by Thurston Hillman.
  • A gazetteer of Oppara, crown jewel of Taldor and center of Inner Sea culture, by Eleanor Ferron.
  • A closer look at some of the primary movers and shakers within the Taldan senate, who make for ideal allies, patrons, or rivals to politically minded players, by Thurston Hillman.
  • A collection of some of Taldor’s most exotic and unusual threats, from the unsettlingly doll-like fantionette to the freewheeling onyvolan, by Thurston Hillman and Adrian Ng.

Alas, alack, forsooth, and prithee!

    Little hope.
    I’d be most interested in a political campaign set in Taldor, one of my favorite nations in Golarion since the setting was introduced.
    However the latest APs published were a let down, even the Ironfang Invasion, that had so much potential.
    I’m most saddened by the fact that the setting was initially proposed as an almost sword and sorcery one, and now it’s more like a high fantasy version of Guardians of the Galaxy.
