Palace of the Lich Queen starts off with a mutidimensional guantlet of encounters designed to test your heroes to the limit. As each encounter is resolved they move on to the next alternate plane, and it's dangers. Many of these realities are known to our Savage Worlds gamers from our Suzerain line, realities that debut for Pathfinder in this volume such as Caladon Falls, Dogs of Hades, and Noir Knights.
Here's a little teaser for you from the interlude where they end up in Set Rising, an Epic God Hunt across mutliple realities. Hades Warriors are the shock troops of Techno-Egyptian god Set in his bid to assume dominion over all the realities. They are merely one of a myriad of foes encountered in the kaleidescopic horror that is Palace of the Lich Queen!

These energized monomolecular blades are a standard among the soldiers of hades. While Hades blades can be made from any type of sword, the most commonly seen ones are made from either the classic gladius or the longsword. Hades blades are +3 keen unholy versions of the base blade. Constructing a Hades blades requires the Magic Arms and Armor feat and the keen edge spell. The crafter must also be a devotee of Hades.
