Chapter 2: "Sword of Valor"
by Neil Spicer
The Wrath of the Righteous Adventure Path continues with "Sword of Valor," by RPG Superstar Neil Spicer. The PCs, now Mythic heroes invested with righteous power, are poised to become the greatest heroes of the war effort against the demons, provided they can survive and succeed at their first mission. The citadel and city of Drezen was once the pride and joy of the crusaders, a symbol of their triumph in the First Crusade against the Worldwound. Yet this triumph was short-lived, for when a larger horde of demons attacked, they shattered Drezen's defenses and captured the citadel and the Crusaders' symbol of power—the Sword of Valor. Can the PCs and an allied team of specialists lead an army north to reclaim Drezen and recover the Sword of Valor, or are they marching their friends and followers into certain death?
“Sword of Valor” is a Pathfinder Roleplaying Game adventure for 6th-level characters who have gained one mythic tier. The adventure utilizes rules from Mythic Adventures in order to portray a campaign of truly epic potential. Two articles exploring the treasures and weapons of the war effort (one focusing on lost relics of the Crusades, the other on the tools used by the demons themselves) along with a bestiary of several monsters (including the second of six demon lords that will be presented during the campaign!) accompany part two of Robin D. Laws's new Pathfinder Journal in this new installment of the Pathfinder Adventure Path!
