It’s a new year, and that means a new adventure path is here in Golarion, and it’s set to take you into one of the biggest dungeons you’ve ever crawled.
The Abomination Vaults are infamous in Golarion. The next adventure path–slated to send players careening into the depths of a dungeon complex that houses an ancient evil, who, naturally, is about to be reborn–starts off in a town new players will be familiar with: Otari. From there it’s set off on adventure into a megadungeon for a 3-volume Adventure Path, the first of which is available in physical form now with pdfs coming in about two weeks. And of course, it’s a Paizo Adventure Path, which means you can expect more than just new monsters and encounters, but also adventure path specific player archetypes, spells, 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.
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!
