SUNKEN_EMPIRESOpen Design has agreed to design an official adventure for the Paizo campaign setting of Golarion. The adventure will be called From Shore to Sea and will describe an ancient set of ruins off the Cheliax coast.

The project’s lead designer is Brandon Hodge, whose work on Halls of the Mountain King and strong pitch for Shores to Sea won him the role. “This is a grand opportunity for Open Design patrons to contribute to this incredible setting,” said Brandon. “I am both grateful and honored to lead this expedition through uncharted waters to finally reveal some of the secrets of Azlant — and create some mysteries of our own.”

Paizo staff will review this adventure to be fully compliant with the requirements of the official Pathfinder campaign setting. The print adventure will be fully developed, edited, illustrated and published by Paizo in the PATHFINDER Modules line in 2010.

In the same vein (but with a more general appeal), Open Design is undertaking a Pathfinder-compatible project called Sunken Empires. This sourcebook will provide adventure hooks, spells, monsters, and variant rules for exploring lost and sunken ruins in any campaign.

Patrons are currently being sought to contribute to this combined project. As a patron, you will receive both design and playtest opportunities as well as credits and copies of the finished works. Details after the jump.
