This article covers the Pathfinder Campaign Setting sourcebook. For the region on Golarion, see Worldwound.

The Worldwound, a Pathfinder Campaign Setting sourcebook by James Jacobs, Jonathan Keith, Jason Nelson, Todd Stewart, and Tanith Tyrr, was released in July 2013.

The WorldwoundA century ago, the nation of Sarkoris was murdered. Today, the fallen nation is a horrific, post-apocalyptic nightmare cloven by a vast canyon that connects Golarion to the demon-haunted reaches of the Abyss. This rift is known as the Worldwound, and through it the demonic hordes pour forth, set on defiling the world of mortals and claiming it for their own. Though the demons have so far been held back at the borders by barbarians and crusaders alike, the region that was once Sarkoris remains a fiendish beachhead on the mortal realm. Worse, the Worldwound itself is slowly growing—and if something isn’t done to halt this blight, the demons it spawns might one day swallow all of Golarion!

Inside this book, you’ll find:

  • Ruined cities, such as the shattered capital city of Iz, the frozen city of Dyinglight, and the river city of Undarin.
  • An exhaustive examination of the strange and otherworldly hazards of this demon-ruled region.
  • Key historical sites such as the Circle of the Hierophants, the Shroud of Unicorns, and Threshold, the fortress where the Abyssal portal first opened.
  • Adventure sites ready for exploration, as well as locations like the holdout town of Gundrun, a safe harbor in a deadly land.
  • More than a dozen new monsters, including several new demons and two new monster templates, ensuring PCs will never lack for foes in this devastated realm!
