Battle of Bloodmarch Hill will contain a Pathfinder adventure for 1st-level characters, by Patrick Renie, a collection of lore on the behavior of giants, Golarion’s largest humanoids, by David Schwartz, a giant bag of feats, spells, equipment, and other rules tailored specifically for giants, by Stephen Radney-MacFarland, an unfortunate gnome’s encounter with an ogre family in the Pathfinder’s Journal, by Richard Pett and a pack of dangerous monsters, by Tyler Beck, Adam Daigle, and Patrick Renie.
In Battle of Bloodmarch Hill the heroes must investigate a mysterious death in the human town of Trunau, which sits on the edge of civilization and is surrounded by brutal orcs of the Hold of Belkzen. The heroes will be responsible for protecting the town from an attack by an orc army while trying to discover the true motivations of the giant chieftain behind the orc attacks.
Paizo Publisher Erik Mona has this to say about the adventure path:
“Giantslayer is a return to the blood-and-thunder, sword-and-sorcery roots of the Pathfinder RPG. Our last few campaigns have jumped from world to world, cast the heroes and super-legendary über-heroes fighting off a demon invasion, and other madness. Giantslayer tells an epic fantasy story against epic villains that helps players and GMs get back to basics in the most ass-kickingest way we know how.”Additional information on the new Adventure Paths can be found at paizo.com/adventurepath.
