Thousands of years ago, a barrage of meteors called forth from the vastness of space by humanity's greatest enemies rained down on Golarion, cutting short the remarkable human empire of Azlant while plunging the world into an era of darkness. Since then, the shattered continent of Azlant has lured intrepid explorers to its broken shores, but few have the mettle to survive in the remains of this dangerous and mysterious land. Now, a hopeful expedition has established a colony on one of the nearest islands across the sea, but danger has struck the fledgling settlement. An ancient enemy was accidentally released from its prison and has resumed its millennium-old machinations to punish the hubris of humanity once again. Can the adventurers survive in a faraway land and track down this enigmatic being before its sinister plans can come to fruition?

The Ruins of Azlant Adventure Path begins with the adventurers standing on the deck of a ship ready to make landfall at their new home. However, dread settles in as they notice that the colony is empty and abandoned. Tasked with finding out what happened to the previous colonists, the adventurers go ashore and explore the deserted settlement. Uncovering strange evidence leads the adventurers across the island where they encounter two survivors that can give them clues as to what happened the rest of the first wave of colonists. Can the adventurers survive long enough to discover what truly happened?

Into the Shattered Continent Written by Robert Brookes Expected September 2017
After working to secure their settlement on the lost continent of Azlant, the adventurers aid the colony by exploring the rest of the island in search of resources and to look for potential dangers. After a few days spent on exploratory missions and returning to the settlement each night, they begin to notice that some people in the settlement are acting strangely, a haunting echo of the clues left behind after the original settlers vanished. Sinister forces are at work in the colony and the adventurers must uncover a menacing threat to the settlement before they become the next victims of a vile plot.

The Flooded Cathedral Written by Mikko Kallio Expected October 2017
As the adventurers work to track down the missing colonists, the trail leads to a nearby island. There, the adventurers discover the submerged ruins of a cathedral dedicated to a now-dead god that has become a lair of an ichthyic monster and its cunning minions. The adventurers must fight their way through flooded chambers and vicious monsters to find the kidnapped colonists and learn the greater threat to the region and to humanity as a whole.
City in the Deep.jpg
City in the Deep Written by Amber E. Scott Expected November 2017
On the trail of a powerful ancient enemy, the adventurers seek more information in a merfolk city teeming with intrigue just beneath the waves. They arrive in the free city around the same time that a group of deep merfolk came to the city claiming that the place is in the path of a destructive sea monster. This warning is nothing more than a ruse for the campaign's villain to uncover the location to a secret Azlanti military laboratory that contains a dangerous weapon. The adventurers must carefully maneuver the social currents of the underwater city and unravel dangerous intrigue to get to the bottom of the merfolk's plot and discover where the ancient enemy is headed so they can stop it.

After learning that a powerful and ancient enemy is planning to steal a doomsday weapon and use it against humanity, the adventurers visit a ruined undersea tower belonging to an undead survivor of the cataclysm that destroyed ancient Azlant. In pursuit of the veiled master who they believe has infiltrated the tower, the heroes make their way through the submerged ruin, fighting against the tower's defenses and undead occupants only to realize that the veiled master already slipped out with the lich's phylactery and the location of the devastating weapon. Can the heroes also learn the location of the facility and escape alive to confront the veiled master or will they end up entombed in the drowned tower?
Beyond the Veiled Past.jpg
Beyond the Veiled Past Written by Thurston Hillman Expected January 2018
The insidious veiled masters who sunk Old Azlant beneath the treacherous ocean in ancient times mobilize their forces against the heroes' allies, even as the adventurers themselves close on their enemies for a final confrontation. After preparing their allies for the impending assault, the heroes must fight their way through the submerged ruins of an ancient weapons facility packed with dangerous guardians and unstable magic to stop their monstrous foes before the veiled masters unleash a devastating eldritch attack to exterminate humanity and plunge the world into darkness just as they did when they brought Azlant to ruin so long ago.
