The Worldwound Incursion, an adventure by Amber E. Scott with additional material by James Jacobs, Jason Nelson, David Schwartz, and Jerome Virnich and fiction by Robin D. Laws, was released in August 2013. It is the debut chapter in the Wrath of the Righteous Adventure Path and is the first published adventure to use the Mythic Adventures core rules supplement.

The Beginning of the End!For more than a hundred years, the demon-infested Worldwound has warred against humanity, its Abyssal armies clashing with crusaders, barbarians, mercenaries, and heroes along the border of lost Sarkoris. But when one of the magical wardstones that helps hedge the demons into their savage realm is sabotaged, the crusader city of Kenabres is attacked and devastated by the demonic hordes. Can a small band of heroes destined for mythic greatness survive long enough to hold back the forces of chaos and evil until help arrives, or will they become the latest in a long line of victims slaughtered by Deskari, the demon lord of the Locust Host?

This volume of Pathfinder Adventure Path launches the Wrath of the Righteous Adventure Path and includes:

Foreword: "Let's Get Mythical" by James Jacobs (4)

Paizo Creative Director James Jacobs gives a warm introduction for the Adventure Path and explains the importance of the Mythic Adventures and Ultimate Campaign hardcovers.

1. "The Worldwound Incursion" by Amber E. Scott (6)

Opening in the middle of the Armasse-Kenabres, the adventure starts with an attack of the Storm King himself to the city that destroys the Wardstone, leaving the heroes falling to the underground. While there they make new allies, some that fell with them and other surprising ones, but also will stumble upon secrets of this terrible invasion. As Kenabres's mythic heroes, the PCs must overcome the tide of war with their yet-untapped power and give Golarion a fighting chance against the Abyss.
