The Golem’s Got It!
Sunken Empires (PFRPG) Print Edition

Way Down, Below the Ocean

Open Design has two new Pathfinder RPG Compatible books available!

When Wolfgang Baur first pitched us on his idea to do a project for us based on the sunken continent of Azlant, we were really excited about the prospects. Wolf has always had a knack for creating settings to explore lost civilizations, so letting him play in Azlant seemed like a good idea. He set up the project using his Open Design patronage system and ended up with two separate products: next month will see the release of From Shore to Sea, an official Paizo-published Pathfinder Module set in Golarion, while Open Design has just published Sunken Empires, a Pathfinder RPG-Compatible sourcebook that brings lost aquatic civilizations to any campaign setting. The print edition of Sunken Empires is in our store now; the PDF will be available on June 8.

The life of an adventurer should be full of great daring, and little is more daring than retrieving the sunken treasures of the Underdeep! Sunken Empires is heaped high with glorious new magic, monsters, and rules for lost technology and abolethic horrors, including the history of the Aboleth by its creator David “Zeb” Cook; a full Ecology of the Aboleth; glyph magic and seaborne familiars; feats and gear for Net Fighters; lost technology from Lightning Spears to Lemurian Coil Rifles; and more than 10 new coastal and undersea monsters. With advice on designing your own lost civilization and hundreds of hooks and story ideas to scatter along the coast for beachcombing adventurers to find, Sunken Empires is one Pathfinder Roleplaying Game-compatible sourcebook you don’t want to miss.

Open Design’s other new product, Imperial Gazetteer, was originally released for 4E, but now has a Pathfinder RPG-compatible edition! Vampires and spectral knights long ago claimed the country of Morgau & Doresh as their own, leaving the ghouls their empire deep beneath the earth. Both realms of Zobeck are fully detailed in this volume by Wolfgang Baur and Scott Gable. Travel deep within the palatial crypts of deep realms of undeath and learn the secrets of the vampire-princes and the ghoul emperor. This gazetteer provides rich new Pathfinder RPG material including a history of the undead nations above and below the earth; a giant cast of undying antagonists and allies; a new undead race of necropolitan ghouls for PCs; the subterranean realms of the Emperor of the Ghouls; undead-themed gods and magical items; and more original, inventive undead than you can shake a stake at.
