Crownfall.jpg
Crownfall Written by Thurston Hillman Expected February 2018
As the entire capital city gathers to celebrate, conspiracy and stagnation rot the old empire of Taldor to its core! When a high-minded cabal of senators and nobles try to steer their nation away from disaster, Emperor Stavian III himself orders a bloodbath in the Senate halls, trapping neophyte spies inside layer upon layer of magical security. As tensions rise and the emperor falls, can the heroes escape the forgotten halls beneath the Senate and save the heir to Taldor from an assassin's blade? And even then, can anyone prevent a civil war that will tear the Inner Sea's oldest nation apart at its rotting seams?

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?

The Twilight Child Written by Ron Lundeen Expected April 2018
After dealing with the Lotheed family of Meratt County, the PCs head to the city of Yanmass to learn that an imperialist merchant has begun a political campaign against Princess Eutropia. In addition to this political struggle, the heroes discover that the city is plagued with other troubles, including increased threats from Qadiran bandits, the disappearance of skilled Taldan cavalry, a plague of disturbing nightmares, and the rise of a mysterious cult who worships a figure known as the Twilight Child. Can the adventurers unravel the mysteries and solve the city's problems while supporting their patron's push for the throne, or will they fall victim to knives in the dark?
