Pathfinder Online: Thornkeep - Coming in February from Paizo!
The Pathfinder Online MMO will put YOU in command of your very own kingdom in the treacherous River Kingdoms of the Pathfinder world. Get an early start on conquest with Pathfinder Online: Thornkeep, a complete gazetteer of one of the upcoming game’s starting towns and the deadly dungeons that sprawl beneath it!
A co-production of video game developers Goblinworks and Paizo Publishing, this fully illustrated adventure sourcebook slots easily into any Pathfinder RPG campaign, and provides a tantalizing glimpse at the early production of the Pathfinder Online MMO, with behind-the-scenes accounts, sneak peeks at characters and environment images, and new details about the upcoming game.
This 96-page book also includes complete original dungeon levels designed by a who’s-who of adventure design: Richard Baker, Jason Bulmahn, Ed Greenwood, James Jacobs, and Erik Mona! With enough gaming material to advance a character from 1st to 8th level, Thornkeep brings the action and excitement of the Pathfinder Online MMO to your tabletop!
Thornkeep contains the following complete dungeon levels:
- The Accursed Halls (by veteran RPG designer Richard Baker): Buried beneath the
castle of Thornkeep lie strange passages and chambers that once belonged to a cruel Azlanti wizard of eons past. Goblins have begun excavating the so-called Accursed
Halls in hopes of finding a lost goblin artifact, though their constant battles with the undead that haunt these corridors has left them blind to the dungeon’s other myriad wonders.
- The Forgotten Laboratory (by Pathfinder RPG Lead Designer Jason Bulmahn): The
goblins of the dungeon's upper level took more than one trinket from the ancient laboratory that dwells beneath them. The wizard that created these items also
performed dangerous experiments, many of which have gone out of control over the years. Stranger still, someone appears to be using the ancient equipment with sinister results.
- The Enigma Vaults (by Paizo Creative Director James Jacobs): In ages past, the mad wizard who dwelt in these halls collected many strange items in his travels—and the strangest of those he put on display here, in a museum-like complex he called the
Enigma Vaults. When a group of thieves made their way into the vaults in hopes of a huge payday, they released something far beyond their capacity to control, and now
they serve as the thralls of a sinister influence from a dark and distant world.
- Sanctum of a Lost Age (by Paizo Publisher Erik Mona): Scholars claim the dungeons below Thornkeep were built by the Ancient Azlanti, but how do they know, really? If Rozimus of Tymon speaks true, one level of Thornkeep’s dungeon holds survivors of
that long-dead empire eager to return to the world and share the lore of their glorious age. They’re not undead, Rozimus claims, or illusory phantoms, but true living and breathing High Azlanti! But why does Rozimus know so much about them, and why is
he so eager to return to the dungeon he claims almost killed him 5 years ago?
- Dark Menagerie (by RPG legend Ed Greenwood): In life, the wizard who ruled this
realm kept many trophies, mementos, and even captured pets from his journeys, both
to entertain his dark sensibilities and to cow his business associates and coerced
allies. Now, kept alive all these years via stasis-inducing magic that's recently failed,
the unfettered beasts of his magical menagerie run amok.

L5R: The Second City - Coming in August from Alderac!
"Welcome to the shining star of the Colonies, the Second City, honorable samurai! May your stay here be as interesting and profitable as you desire! I strongly recommend that you do not venture outside the city until you have had an opportunity to receive some rudimentary training with the Second City Guardsmen, however."
-Shinjo Hariken, Vassal of the Miya
Twenty-five years ago, Rokugan fought a terrible battle against an invading gaijin army known as the Destroyers. Although the noble samurai of the Emerald Empire were victorious, the conflict was devastating beyond all others, and the lands of the Great Clans were left in ruins by the fighting. To spare her people the threat of further war, war which would surely lead to the death of an Empire, the Divine Empress sued for peace with the forces of darkness, and then dispatched her vassals to claim the empty lands left behind in the wake of the Destroyers.
A generation later, the untimely death of a prominent magistrate in Rokugan suddenly elevates a group of simple samurai to a position of authority, but the magistrate's unfinished business sends them to the Second City to see it to completion. There, influential samurai from the Empire have almost limitless potential, but the distractions from duty are numerous.
In the Second City, will honor prove stronger than steel?
This boxed set for the Legend of the Five Rings Role-playing Game, 4th Edition includes the following:
- A complete sourcebook on the Second City, and information on the Colonies beyond its border.

- A poster-sized map of the Second City
- Technique Cards, covering all of the Great Clan basic Schools from the L5R RPG core rules
- A pad of Character Sheets for everyone at the table

D&D: Heroes of the Feywild - Now in Stock from WOTC!
Ready to explore your character's wild side?
Player's Option: Heroes of the Feywild enables players to weave elements of the Feywild into their existing and future characters, in much the same way that Player's Option: Heroes of Shadow gave players reasons to explore their characters' dark connections to the Shadowfell.
This book contains exciting new character builds and options that are thematically rooted to the Feywild, a wild and verdant plane of arcane splendor, full of dangerous and whimsical creatures. Characters who trace their origins or backgrounds to the Feywild gain access to unique feats, powers, and mechanics. The book explores what makes fey-themed characters so fun and distinct.
Note: This book will not let you play a vampire

Ars Magica: The Cradle & The Crescent - from Atlas Games
Travelers tell of lands to the east, beyond the shattered Byzantine Empire and the Crusader kingdoms of Outremer, where sorcerers ride carpets and whirlwinds, where jinn worship and trade openly in the great cities, and where fire is the sign of God.
Those travelers speak the truth.
Take your saga to the east, with details of the Islamic lands of the Mythic Middle East: Arabia, Persia, and the lands beyond. Zoroastrian priests still call on Divine power, although their days of glory are long over, and scholars rejoice in libraries and schools that dwarf the young universities of Europe. Jinn haunt the deserts and mountains, and live and trade in the cities. But this is not a land ready for Hermetic magi to seize, for the Order of Suleiman is no myth, and its sahirs are everywhere.
Were you to tell of these lands for a thousand nights, still you would not exhaust their wonders!
