This is my absolute first time running a pathfinder campaign, and I couldn’t be more excited. I’ve been spending the past month mapping out plot lines (accounting for party derailment) and general themes. And now…
I got my world map finalized! This version isn’t to scale fully, even though there’s a scale in the corner. I enlarged a few things just for this picture so that in case my players find it, they’re not seeing a fully accurate map before the 23rd.
Paileus is a world rife with political and social turmoil. At the turn of the century, many citizens are not too thrilled with how the world is run; broken up into separate conflicting factions that have little regard for the fallout of their actions.
Most common folk see themselves as just casual players in the long game, and few are willing to step up to do what is right.
The late King Taeron had begun amassing mystical artifacts capable of dealing great harm to his foes in a last-ditch effort to sway the turning war in his direction. And much like others before him, his sudden passing left his dream unfulfilled. The whereabouts of these artifacts are unknown to even the royal family.
There have also been rumors circulating of a second rebellion rising from the south led by a surprising force.
It is your job to navigate this world. Discover its secrets, and all it has to offer you.
Perhaps you wish to discover who truly murdered the King. Or maybe you’re more interested in hunting down the artifacts that Taeron had scattered to the corners of the earth. At the end of the day, you may just want to roam around the continents seeing how many notches you can put in your proverbial belt at each of the cities’ finest brothels.
Whatever you choose, make it worthwhile. Begin your journey in Scorpion Bay, and let the adventure unfold.
