Late Pledge Campaign
The Late Pledge campaign gives you one final opportunity to seize the Kingmaker Adventure Path and Companion Guide, as well as pick up Add-On products that are exclusive to the campaign. From Hero Point tokens and Kingmaker-themed dice to the Kingdom Management Screen, this is your opportunity to make your Kingmaker campaign something truly memorable!
Where it All Began: In 2010, Pathfinder’s Kingmaker Adventure Path raised the bar on what a tabletop fantasy RPG campaign could be. With open-ended sandbox-style adventures, Kingmaker beckoned players to claim their throne and carve a new nation out of the treacherous River Kingdoms, map hex by map hex. Tens of thousands of gamers answered the call, ranking Kingmaker among the best-known and best-loved tabletop campaigns in history.
In past years, we’ve published hardcover collections of our popular Rise of the Runelords and Curse of the Crimson Throne campaigns, returning beloved out-of-print favorites updated with new bridging material, new illustrations and maps, errata, and numerous additional improvements. This campaign brings Kingmaker into the same fold.
Into the Digital Realm: Last fall, Owlcat Games released a best-selling computer game adaptation of the Kingmaker campaign, adding new adventures, new mysteries, and more than a dozen new companions to accompany the players as they expand their holdings from a single fortress to a burgeoning empire. A new generation of rulers have schemed and sliced their way to the heights of power in the River Kingdoms, and interest in the Kingmaker campaign has never been higher!
Kingmaker’s 10th Anniversary: Next year is the perfect time to celebrate with a brand new collected and expanded hardcover compilation of the Kingmaker campaign for Pathfinder Second Edition, along with a little something special for our friends who prefer 5th Edition or the first edition of Pathfinder.
Kingmaker Adventure Path: In Kingmaker, your player characters are more than mere adventurers. They are destined to become the rulers of the world’s newest kingdom—a nation that you get to build from the ground up as the campaign unfolds! In the northeastern corner of the sprawling expanse of the River Kingdoms lies an unclaimed wilderness known as the Stolen Lands. If your PCs can defeat the bandits and monsters that infest the central portion of the Stolen Lands, you’ll be able to establish your new nation therein... but this is only the beginning. Rugged mountains, sprawling swamps, and tangled forests border your new home on all sides, and as you expand into these lands you’ll forge new alliances, clash with new foes, and uncover an ancient menace that has long lurked in the overgrown corners of the Stolen Lands. But once you’ve claimed your territory, can your party defend this hard-won kingdom from war on its borders and supernatural threats from within? Will you rule with justice and mercy, or will you become the very monsters you fought to oppose? In the Kingmaker Adventure Path, the destiny of the world’s newest nation is yours to decide!
A stunning 640-page hardcover, the Kingmaker Adventure Path provides GMs everything they need to run this epic campaign. All six chapters published in 2010 will be updated to Pathfinder Second Edition rules—including a new prologue making its tabletop debut in this release! Detailed appendices provide GMs with flavorful gazetteers of the campaign’s myriad locations, from the Stolen Lands at large to the rival city of Pitax.
The Kingmaker Adventure Path also features complete rules for hex-map exploration, kingdom building, and management to bring the campaign’s most innovative elements to life at your table. Lastly, a bestiary of new and updated monsters that feature prominently in the Adventure Path give GMs of any campaign new tools to torment their player characters with! The expanded adventure path also includes new material, including:
Barony Expansion: You’ll get a wealth of new tools, options, and encounters to complicate your players’ lives during the early days of their nation’s foundation. What strange events, dangerous complications, and unexpected boons await, and what effect might they have on the nation during its tender formative years?
Season of Bloom: A strange and frightening contagion spreads through your lands—people are getting sick, going mad, and ultimately bursting open as horrific monsters emerge from within to rampage through the kingdom! Can you cure this strange affliction and bring the Season of Bloom to a close before your nation falls apart from within?
Candlemere Dungeon: The ancient legacy of an eldritch god still holds sway. The deadly truths hidden away within the chambers below Candlemere will test your PCs to the very limits of sanity and life alike! Are the powerful treasures and ancient secrets to be discovered in the sprawling ruins below Candlemere worth the dangers your PCs will face, or are some things best left forgotten?
- Cursed King: Take your Kingmaker PCs on their most deadly and dangerous adventure ever! With this expansion, the Kingmaker Adventure Path will provide enough content for your party of adventurers to reach the absolute height of power, finishing the campaign as 20th-level heroes... that is, if you can survive these final epic encounters!
Kingmaker Companion Guide: The adventures don’t stop in Kingmaker’s core campaign. Inspired by the hit CRPG from Owlcat Games, the Kingmaker Companion Guide is a 128-page hardcover that expands on the experience by providing details on twelve companion NPCs who are destined to accompany you into the Stolen Lands. Each NPC in the Kingmaker Companion Guide is presented at several points during their adventuring careers, and as your PCs get to know them, each will reveal additional quests in the Stolen Lands, giving your party ever more opportunities to grow in power and fame. From the base campaign, sidequest adventures will be included for Amiri, Ekundayo, Jubilost, Linzi, Nok-Nok, Tristian, and Valerie.
Further rules expanding specialized roles in kingdom management, shenanigans that could take place around campfires or in taverns between adventures, and other downtime activities will help to fill the gaps between adventures and improve your characters’ and your kingdom’s legend with each friend you make!
Kingmaker Bestiary for 5E (Add-On): Why limit the fun of the Kingmaker Adventure Path to Pathfinder players? With the Kingmaker Bestiary for 5E add-on, GMs and players of the fifth edition of the world’s oldest roleplaying game gain access to more than 140 monsters and key NPCs from the Kingmaker Adventure Path! Whether used as a companion volume to help convert the entire Kingmaker campaign or as a handy way to add new challenges and foes to 5E campaigns of all varieties, these time-tested critters and foes are sure to keep your players on their toes! Be it the lumbering menace of a forest-dwelling hodag, the slime-dripping slurk, the overwhelming danger of the two-headed tarn linnorm, or the burbling power of the legendary jabberwock, these foes and more will surely vex, terrify, and torment an entire new arena of PCs. With rules conversion and additional design by Legendary Games, this collection of creatures translates seamlessly across game systems and is a perfect addition to any 5E campaign! This 160-page hardcover volume is available as an add-on after you’ve selected a reward level.
Kingmaker Bestiary for Pathfinder First Edition (Add-On): Does your group prefer to stick with First Edition?

Here are some answers to the questions we think you'll be asking. We'll add to this as the campaign progresses.
Will Paizo be running crowdfunding campaigns for other products in the future?
This is a special event. We’re not ruling out the possibility, but we’re not currently planning any other crowdfunding campaigns.
Will Paizo be publishing other 5E products?
This is a special event. We’re not ruling out the possibility, but we’re not currently planning any other 5E products.
Will Paizo be publishing other Adventure Path compilations?
This is a special event. We’re not ruling out the possibility, but we’re not currently planning any other Adventure Path compilations. (This is our third Adventure Path compilation in 7 years.)
Some products and Add-Ons are marked as "exclusive." Whart exactly does that mean?
Items labeled as exclusive are only available during the crowdfunding campaign. Paizo won't be selling these items into the hobby channel, though if your local retailer participates they would have some copies for sale.
How will the PDFs be delivered?
PDFs will be watermarked and fulfilled through paizo.com. You must create an account on paizo.com in order to claim your PDFs.
Why are you using Game On Tabletop?
Paizo has been partners with the team behind Game On Tabletop for years, and we've watched the development of this gamer-focused crowdfunding platform for some time. We've seen other campaigns migrate over to Game On Tabletop to manage the back end of the campaign as well, and it just made sense of us to leverage the same platform for both launch and the back end.
Why are you crowdfunding the Kingmaker Adventure Path now?
2020 is the 10th anniversary of Kingmaker, and in order to ensure it launches on its anniversary, we need to start building it now.
What about the Starfinder Masterclass Miniatures from Ninja Division?
Ninja Division's Masterclass miniatures campaign is late. We continue to support and meet with the team at Ninja Division regularly, and they're still actively working to find a solution that gets backers the miniatures they were promised. You can find more information about Paizo's response to the delays on the Paizo Forums.
When will my payment be charged ?
Your payment will be charged instantly at the time of the order. You can make several payments of different amounts during the project duration whenever you add additional items, thus allowing you to check out smaller amounts over a longer timespan.
My shipping rates are 999.9$, is that a mistake ?
This means that the address you provided is not in our shipping table. Please contact us by clicking the "envelope" button on the right side of the page.
What are Weight Markers and why am I receiving them in my purchase?
Weight Markers are a placeholder for future unlocks at your Reward Level. You can ignore them.
