This gives players pertinent info that their characters would know already going into such a situation, including history, location, and other info. Plus, it has new options for players to make their character align perfectly with the game. The Player's Guide for the Strength of Thousands path is available to download now.
From the article:
Education is far from easy at the oldest and most prestigious magic academy in the world. The newest students at the venerable Magaambya school of magic must deal with mysterious infestations, supernatural intruders, and sinister plots—all while juggling their classes!
If you are new to Pathfinder or an Adventure Path, welcome! The Strength of Thousands Adventure Path Player's Guide is your spoiler-free introduction for getting started with this six-part adventure. Inside you will find the following background and rules for the campaign:
The History: The Magaambya was founded thousands of years ago by the greatest wizard the world has ever known. Follow the legacy left by Old-Mage Jatembe and his Ten Magic Warriors. Learn of the ranks within the school and the branches of knowledge students can follow. Every student stands tall upon the strength of thousands who have come before them in the ancient academy!
Coming Together: The Strength of Thousands Adventure Path begins as the heroes arrive at the Magaambya, their home throughout their adventures. Although the heroes must remain close to the Magaambya to learn their initial lessons, they’ll soon gain greater responsibilities and venture across the Mwangi Expanse—and beyond! Incoming students are grouped together in a cohort to support and learn from each other throughout their education. Rather than a typical adventuring party, the heroes of the Strength of Thousands Adventure Path are a cohort of diverse and dedicated students.
Spellcasting for Everyone: Even though any character class works well in the Strength of Thousands Adventure Path, a campaign where students attend a magic school wouldn’t seem very magical unless all the heroes can cast spells! The player’s guide contain rules that let characters who can’t cast spells (like fighters or rogues) dabble in a bit of magic. Heroes who can already cast spells get even more to expand their repertoire.
