Do you like your dungeons big enough that you could spend an entire character’s lifetime exploring them? You’ll love the Abomination Vaults.

Come gather ’round for a look at Pathfinder’s next Adventure Path, the Abomination Vaults. This marks a change of pace for Pathfinder 2E, as Paizo continues to roll out its 6 month/3 month adventure paths, now moving that paradigm beyond just Starfinder. The newly announced adventure path will send players to a megadungeon known as the Abomination Vaults over the course of three full-length volumes of an adventure path that comes with all the usual things we expect out of Paizo. New monsters, new support articles, new player options, and more.

All of this takes place deep within a sprawling dungeon where an evil sorcerer, Belcorra Haruvex, once attempted to raise an army of monsters. Now it’s up to brave heroes to venture into a dungeon full of beasts and traps to prevent a spiteful villain from rising again. It’s as classic a fantasy adventure as it gets.

Ruins of Gauntlight (Abomination Vaults 1 of 3) – $24.99

Enter the megadungeon! When the mysterious Gauntlight, an eerie landlocked lighthouse, glows with baleful light, the people of Otari know something terrible is beginning. The town’s newest heroes must venture into the ruins around the lighthouse—and delve the dungeon levels far beneath it—to discover the evil the Gauntlight heralds. Hideous monsters, deadly traps, and mysterious ghosts all await the heroes who dare to enter the sprawling megadungeon called the Abomination Vaults!

“Ruins of Gauntlight” is a Pathfinder adventure for four 1st-level characters. This adventure begins the Abomination Vaults Adventure Path, a three-part, monthly campaign in which the heroes explore a sprawling megadungeon to stop an ancient evil from renewing her monstrous vengeance. This adventure also includes an extensive gazetteer of the town of Otari, the heroes’ home base, as well as new monsters, new rules, and new artifacts—including the dread Gauntlight itself!

Each monthly full-color softcover Pathfinder Adventure Path volume contains an in-depth adventure scenario, stats for several new monsters, and support articles meant to give Game Masters additional material to expand their campaign. Pathfinder Adventure Path volumes use the Open Game License and work with both the Pathfinder RPG and the world’s oldest fantasy RPG.


Happy Adventuring!
