Riverine Rise

Nathan Garvin
Scott Peers

The final area to explore, the Riverine Rise, is the only area east of the Stag Lord’s Fort. From the Old Mesa area, the route is as follows:

  • North (to reach empty node north of Old Mesa)
  • Northeast
  • Southeast (along the river)
  • Southeast (cross the river)
  • Southeast (to reach empty node south of Riverine Rise)
  • Northeast

From Thorn Ford:

  • Southwest (cross the river)
  • Southeast (along the river)
  • Southeast (along the river, a third time)
  • Southeast (cross the river)
  • Southeast (to reach empty node south of Riverine Rise)
  • Northeast

Like the Old Mesa area, this location isn’t terribly busy, housing merely one foe, albeit a rather powerful one. From where you arrive, follow the trail north, then uphill to the northeast to find a Large Water Elemental. Use the normal precautions and buff your tank, then lead with them to draw the elemental’s attention, and you should have no trouble with this foe. It again has Damage Reduction (a mere DR 5 this time, however), and while its HP are high, its Armor Class and Attack bonus are merely on par with what your best warriors should have - in other words, no match for a 6-on-1 fight.

Kill the Elemental, then head northwest to find a corpse, from which you can score two Potions of Restoration, Lesser and three Scrolls of Remove Blindness. What an odd combination… an itinerant healer, perhaps? And with that, there’s little left to do but return to Oleg’s Trading Post, sell off your loot, rest, and prepare to finally assault the Stag Lord’s Fort.

At the mansion of the Swordlord Jamandi Aldori, adventurers have gathered, lured by the promise of dominion should one of them conquer the nearby Stolen Lands and oust its current overlord - the Stag Lord. You are one such adventurer, and Jamandi’s offer isn’t just a benevolent call-to-arms to make the Stolen Lands safe for normal folk, there’s political angles to its conquest, and the ultimate allegience of its new ruler. More than that, however, a sinister, primordial force has her own interests in the Stolen Lands, and a desire to see new rulers rise… and fall. The Pathfinder: Kingmaker guide includes a full walkthrough of the game’s main campaign, including various side quests, companion quests and strategies.
