It’s been a long road to volume 100 of the Pathfinder Adventure Path. Here is what Paizo has to say about the milestone:
Let’s dive right in:

“The biggest new addition to this volume is the Friends and Foes section where we present an NPC inspired by every Adventure Path we’ve done so far—from Rise of the Runelords to Giantslayer. These NPCs provide a GM with a new character to introduce to their campaigns, and the write up gives plenty of suggestions for the NPC’s role in other Adventure Paths than the one they are primarily associated with. Best yet, I made sure to get some of your favorite Adventure Path writers to create these NPCs. It was a lot of fun wrangling all these authors to present this special retrospective. Be sure to check out the introduction to see who wrote which character.

Finally, since James indulged himself and put one of his characters into the adventure, I decided to do something similar and nab half of the bestiary for myself (James did the other two monsters). At this past PaizoCon, I ran a game that featured a monster that I designed especially for the adventure. I also was on a panel with artist Jason Engle and the art team where we talked about monster design while Jason sketched up a new critter based on the conversation. When we were done with the panel I was shocked by how much what he drew looked like the monster I designed for my adventure, and I knew what I had to do. I talked with Sarah Robinson, and we ended up getting Jason to turn the sketch into final art so that we could use the art for my monster that I suddenly planned to inject into this volume. And that’s how the telgrodradt ended up in Pathfinder Adventure Path #100.

Down with Thrune!
It’s the one hundredth volume of the Pathfinder Adventure Path! Too long has the diabolic Lord-Mayor Barzillai Thrune inflicted cruelties and increasingly oppressive laws on his citizens. The heroes of the beleaguered city of Kintargo finally strike back at the sources of corruption, as their rebellion mobilizes in the streets. Rescuing old heroes from forgotten prison cells, reclaiming control of key locations, and performing an ancient song that was used years ago to protect the city from Hell’s agents are but the preamble for the decisive battle—an assault on the enormous Temple of Asmodeus!
This volume of Pathfinder Adventure Path continues the Hell’s Rebels Adventure Path and includes:
- “A Song of Silver,” a Pathfinder adventure for 10th-level characters, by James Jacobs.
- A study of the former faith of the dead god Aroden, by Erik Mona.
- A retrospective collection of NPCs for each of the previous Adventure Paths, by various authors.
- A descent into evil in the Pathfinder’s Journal, by Stephanie Lorée.
- Four exciting new monsters, by Adam Daigle and James Jacobs.
- A poster map depicting a key battlefield within the adventure.
