The first volume of the Carrion Crown Adventure Path is here!
It was only a matter of time before they set a Pathfinder Adventure Path in Ustalav. Managing Editor Wes Schneider staked his claim on Golarion’s gothic milieu at the very outset of the Golarion campaign setting, and given that the second-ever Pathfinder adventure, “The Skinsaw Murders,” played with the horror theme to high praise from GMs and players everywhere, I’m surprised it took three and a half years for Wes to assert his managerial control to usher in an entire horror-themed Ustalavic Adventure Path.
But the wait is over! The new Carrion Crown Adventure Path is a tour-de-force romp through the various counties of Ustalav, taking in a bunch of classic horror monsters along the way. You begin by getting ghostly in Pathfinder Advent ure Path #43: Haunting of Harrowstone!
When Harrowstone Prison burned to the ground, prisoners, guards, and a host of vicious madmen met a terrifying end. In the years since, the nearby town of Ravengro has shunned the fire-scarred ruins, telling tales of unquiet spirits that wander abandoned cellblocks. But when a mysterious evil disturbs Harrowstone’s tenuous spiritual balance, a ghostly prison riot commences that threatens to consume the nearby village in madness and flames. Can the adventurers discover the secrets of Harrowstone and quell a rebellion of the dead? Or will they be the spirit-prison’s next inmates?
