CODEX: IMPERIAL KNIGHTS

41.00

Guided by a Noble pilot, an Imperial Knight moves with a speed and grace that should not be possible from such a towering engine of war. Enemy fire pinging harmlessly off its thick armour, ion shields flashing with brilliant light, the Imperial Knight unleashes incredibly powerful weaponry, able to wipe entire battalions off the map with a single volley of explosive chain-gun fire. Should any enemy survive this bullet hell, the Knight also wields terrifying close-combat capabilities – smashing through the thickest armour with its enormous gauntlets and crushing foes under its massive feet. To see a squadron of Imperial Knights is to gaze upon the full splendour – and might – of the Imperium.

This 120-page, full-colour hardback book contains:

  • Full rules for five Imperial Knights: Paladin and Errant are joined by three new types – Warden, Gallant and Crusader;
  • Two unique Detachments – the Household Detachment (Primary Detachment of Imperial Knights) and the Oathsworn Detachment (an Allied Detachment of Imperial Knights);
  • Extensive background material, colour schemes and heraldry for Imperial Knights from a number of different Knight worlds;
  • A new system of ranking, with rules and bonuses available for using their formations and detachments;
    Five entirely new formations, allowing you to field efficient squadrons of Knights.

22.99

The orcs attacking Trunau have been defeated, but the danger remains—the hill giant chieftain Grenseldek still wants the treasures of the tomb beneath Trunau. In order to protect their chosen community, the heroes must leave it and travel by riverboat through the orc-ruled Hold of Belkzen to the abandoned border fort that the giant has claimed as her lair. Yet even putting down Grenseldek and her squabbling monstrous minions may not be enough to save Trunau. For the hill giant has sent a fateful letter, and a storm is brewing on the horizon…

This volume of Pathfinder Adventure Path continues the Giantslayer Adventure Path and includes:

  • “The Hill Giant’s Pledge,” a Pathfinder adventure for 4th-level characters, by Larry Wilhelm.

  • A collection of exciting additional encounters set in the Mindspin Mountains, by David Schwartz.
  • A perfect ambush goes awry in the Pathfinder’s Journal, by Michael Kortes.
