As the entire capital city gathers to celebrate, conspiracy and stagnation rot the old empire of Taldor to its core! When a high-minded cabal of Senators and nobles try to steer their nation away from disaster, Emperor Stavian III himself orders a bloodbath in the Senate halls, trapping neophyte spies inside layer upon layer of magical security. As tensions rise and the emperor falls, can the heroes escape the forgotten halls beneath the Senate and save the heir to Taldor from an assassin’s blade? And even then, can anyone prevent a civil war that will tear the Inner Sea’s oldest nation apart at its rotting seams?
“Crownfall” is a Pathfinder Roleplaying Game adventure for 1st-level characters. The adventure kicks off the War for the Crown Adventure Path, as players drag a once-grand nation kicking and screaming into the modern day, becoming legendary politicians, spymasters, and nobles in their own right. A selection of new monsters, a city gazetteer of Taldor’s capital Oppara, a look at magical relics and the power they conceal, and an overview of the campaign round out this volume of the Pathfinder Adventure Path.
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.
