| Kingdoms rise and nations fall, but Taldor endures! The first empire of the Inner Sea remains a powerhouse even after five-thousand years, its vast lands rife with adventure and intrigue. Explore its deadly politics, lost history, and towering monuments in Pathfinder Campaign Setting: Taldor, The First Empire. Taldor is a land of contradictions, indescribable splendor and urban decay, saturated with history both fondly remembered and deliberately forgotten. Discover incredible wealth by plumbing the First Empire's storied past and battling its great threats, or meet terrible ruin on perfumed lips and heady wines. The greatest dangers of Taldor—places, beasts, and especially its people—lie within.
Taldor is the dynamic setting for the War for the Crown Adventure Path, making this comprehensive guide to the nation's geography, politics, and history a perfect resource for that campaign, as well as for many Pathfinder Module adventures! Inside this book you'll find:

- Nearly a dozen adventure sites tied to Taldor's past glories and modern decay, from ruined cities to lost valleys of the dead.
