|“|| Worn With Woe I BeThe county of Meratt is Taldor in a microcosm: a once-glorious land left to decay by negligent nobles. But to help secure Princess Eutropia's bid for the throne, bold adventurers must now infiltrate her ancestral homeland and overthrow the corrupt Count Lotheed from within, gaining allies and solving problems left to fester far too long. Can they play idle noble by day and hero by night well enough to reverse the county's fortunes, or will the weight of history's sins be too crushing a burden?
This volume of Pathfinder Adventure Path continues the War for the Crown Adventure Path, provides a gazetteer of a Taldan county, two new rules subsystems used in the campaign, and four new monsters. As with all War for the Crown volumes, Songbird, Scion, Saboteur features a map of Taldor highlighting succession loyalties on the inside front cover and a biography of a historical grand prince on the inside back cover.
1. Foreword: Tigers & Teacups by Crystal Frasier (2)
- Co-author and book lead developer Crystal Frasier gives a flavorful look into ten things to know about Taldans, including that they love dogs, board games, and wordplay.
- As newly-appointed agents in Taldor's escalating struggle for succession, the heroes must help their Princess Eutropia build a power base by reclaiming her family's land from squatters—the debased Lotheed family, who feast as their subjects starve and their infrastructure crumbles. Can the heroes infiltrate the high-society of Meratt County through its extravagant balls and tournaments, while secretly undermining Count Bartelby Lotheed's authority, or will their clandestine attempts to repair the damage done and woo allies ultimately lead them to the headsman's blade?
3. County of Meratt by Amanda Hamon Kunz (64)
- A gazetteer of the county of Meratt, providing context for the various locations, personalities, and institutions the players are bound to encounter during the course of the adventure.
4. Agents of Change by Linda Zayas-Palmer (70)
- A guide to the new Persona rules system used in this adventure and throughout the remainder of the War for the Crown Adventure Path.
5. Relics of Old Taldor by Logan Bonner (76)
- A guide to the new Relics rules system used throughout the War for the Crown Adventure Path, including eight new scalable magic items found throughout the first four volumes of the campaign.
- In addition to four new monsters, this entry in the Pathfinder Bestiary presents a random encounter table for the county of Meratt, and three extra encounters featuring the half-celestial unicorn Malonarin, the treant Rueleaf, and the hangman tree Struggle.
