Nidal is a land ruled by evil–transformed by the wicked god that has suborned it. It is also the latest upcoming campaign setting for Pathfinder. Venture beyond the veil of shadows into this wicked land and learn how it fell, and what has become of it in the days since…
Ruled by evil, transformed by a dark god, Zon-Kuthon, Nidal is a land that cries out for adventurers. This one is an interesting setting, because it has already fallen. The chance to save this dying land has come and gone–and it was answered by god of envy and pain. This has shaped every single event in the land’s history since.
Now heroes will find their way into a country beset by evil. Where shadow haunted castles contain the corrupt leaders of this fallen nation, and the outlying villages hold hapless townsfolk in dire need of saving. Everything you need to build a campaign.
A Land Chained in Shadow
Ten thousand years ago, faced with extinction, the terrified leaders of Nidal heard whispers in their minds—promises of salvation for their nation if only they’d submit their people’s bodies and souls to perpetual servitude. Those leaders’ assent transformed them into conduits for Zon-Kuthon, the god of envy and pain, and has sealed Nidal’s fate to this day.
