Pathfinder’s Lost Omens World Guide, for the second edition of the game, is due out in August.
The largest of the regions in the world guide are the high seas. In a blog post today, Paizo explains that not much has changed between Pathfinder 1 and Pathfinder 2nd edition for the seas and so they now have the time to explore new areas with us.
We have the Mordant Spire, an elven outpost formed around the remains of a dead god. There’s the dragon Mengkare who kindly rules the island of Hermea as part of an experiment to perfect humanity. There’s Ilizmagorti the pirate home port and even details on the Red Mantis assassin’s cult.
While the first edition of Pathfinder spent most of its time discussing the archipelago off Garund’s western coast, the Shackles. The second edition of the popular RPG will now explore beneath the waves and to new sites in the Inner Sea and the Arcadian Ocean.
There’s Irim, the aquatic elf city and the deep-trench algholthu city of Gholinim ruled by sinister masters. Kienek-Li off the Isle of Kortos is an enclave consisting of the Boneglade and the wooden Float held in place by giant chains attached to the ocean floor.
All this isn’t to say the events above the waters have remained static. That’s not the way of the waves. The pirate captain Hurricane King Kerdak Bonefist was defeated by pirates of the famous Wormwood. Kerdak’s defeat meant a vacancy on the Pirate Council, and that was filled by Hurrican Queen Tessa Fairwind.
Tessa Fairwind and the other captains of the council rule from the shadow of the permanent hurricane called the Eye of Abendego, and they are feared as much as they are respected.
Did you take part in the Pathfinder 2 testing and are you now planning on changing editions?
