Kickstarter/Indiegogo of the week: Kingmaker Anniversary Edition

A few years ago, well before I started TheRatHole.ca, I had the pleasure of reviewing The Curse of the Crimson Throne hardcover collection of Pathfinder’s second Adventure Path. Now, with 2020 approaching quickly, Paizo is pulling out the stops for a newly updated and expanded collection to celebrate the 10th anniversary of the Kingmaker Adventure Path.

They are taking everything from the six-part 2010 release and updating it all to the soon-to-be-released Second Edition ruleset. But that’s not all, last year Owlcat Games released a digital adaptation of Kingmaker which greatly expanded the already ambitious story. Much of that expansion is also being integrated into this new version, with more being added as stretch goals are reached.

The main hardcover book clocks in at a massive 59...

Pathfinder RPG: Bestiary 6

If I told you I was excited about the new Bestiary 6 for the Pathfinder RPG, I’d be lying. I’m a player, a fairly casual player even. I really only care about the monster in front of my party: give me a sword and let me stab something. Actually, I’m more likely to use a ranged attack and snipe at it from behind a bush or something, but that’s completely off topic right now. My point is that I generally attempt to avoid GMing whatever game I’m playing. It’s just not my passion. So when I saw that Bestiary 6 was being released, I was fairly disinterested as I read the preview description. Then I saw two little words: Four Horsemen. Wait, what? Like, Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse Horsemen? Yes...

Pathfinder Curse of the Crimson Throne

This is a 100% spoiler free review.  I won’t be touching on the plot at all, so that players can fully enjoy the experience when they play.

In 2012, Paizo Publishing released Rise of the Runelords Anniversary Edition. At the time, they said that a hardcover Adventure Path collection was a one time thing: an anniversary celebration of both Pathfinder, and the first Adventure Path release.

Well, it’s 5 years later and Paizo’s second Adventure Path, Curse of the Crimson Throne, has also made it’s way into a hardcover collection. This version has been revised and expanded to create a fuller playing experience, reorganizing sections and updating some of the NPCs with newer character classes and abilities.

This beautiful hardcover edition is split into eight sections...
