The new path to adventure is in! We are totally blown away by Paizo’s new Adventure Path book, Legacy of Fire: Howl of the Carrion King. This is the first book in their fourth AP series, and this one is the most gorgeous yet. Set in the nation of Katapesh, a dark, sandy province with a Middle Eastern feel, Howl introduces low-level characters into a tangled web of gnoll-hunting, dread curses, and new, horrible monsters that roam the desert wastes. Whatever Paizo is doing to produce their amazingly-crafted role-playing adventures, they’ve definitely hit their stride. One look at the artwork, organizational layout, and totally immersive content will make you a “D&D 3.75” devotee. We just can’t wait for the main Pathfinder book to come out later this summer!
From the back of the book:
In the exotic nation of Katapesh, a land of fortune and wonders, heroes are those with the courage to command their destinies. Such wisdom leads a daring band to the abandoned village of Kelmarane with the hopes of reestablishing the once-prosperous community. But buzzards still feast upon the secluded settlement’s corpse: a savage tribe of gnolls and their bestial allies hold the town in the name of a merciless master known as the Carrion King. Can the PCs retake the village from its feral conquerors, or is Kelmarane but the first bastion of civilization to fall before the hordes of the mysterious warlord?
