With that, you're done with Varnhold Vanishing. Nothing left to do now but head back to the capital, manage your kingdom, see to any sidequests or exploration you may be keen on, and wait for the next disaster you need to resolve...

When you arrive back in your throne room you'll find that there's no rest for the wicked this time around. As soon as you return to your capital, your envoy will inform you that Brevoy itself is under attack, and Jamandi is calling her vassals - that's you - to sweat, bleed and die on her behalf. Seems some barbarians have invaded, and a major battle is anticipated on the Glenebon Uplands. If that's not enough, apparently the Bloom has started again, this time being fortunately localized to the area around Candlemere Lake... small comfort when it's so close to your capital.

Other events abound, but the serious, kingdom-threatening matters are represented by two quests: Betrayer's Flight, which has you investigating this second Bloom and your treacherous priest of Sarenrae, while Hour of Rage involves you fulfilling your feudal obligations to the Swordlords.

You'll find both quests listed below, for you to peruse as you wish. The quest Hour of Rage plays out quite differently if you ignore it to complete Betrayer's Flight, first. That being the case, Hour of Rage is split into an "Early" and a "Late" section. Refer to the "Early" version if you choose to complete Hour of Rage first and "Late" if you attempt Hour of Rage after completing Betrayer's Flight.

Note: This chapter will regularly present you with Perception and Trickery skill checks with Difficulty Classes in the 30s. Your life will be significantly easier and your exploration much more lucrative if you can pass these, the easier the better. If you haven't been diligent in assigning skill points to these skills, it's imperative you do so the next time you level up. If you haven't already purchased Trapspringer's Gloves and Eyes of the Eagle from Hassuf (a merchant in your capital), now's the time.

Warning!: If Amiri is a valuable part of your group, you may wish to do Hour of Rage first.

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.
