Assault on Absalom, a Pathfinder Society multi-table interactive special for Tier 1-11 by Mikko Kallio, debuted at Gen Con 50 on August 18, 2017, and was released to the Paizo store on August 2, 2018.

Glorious Absalom has stood strong against attackers for nearly 5,000 years, and the land around it remains littered with the siege castles of failed invaders. However, centuries have passed since Absalom last repelled a siege in earnest, and a new warlord has gathered a supernatural army and ghastly allies that will test the city—and perhaps be the first to conquer the so-called City at the Center of the World. When chaos erupts in the streets, the Pathfinder Society and its factions rally to the defense of their home, uncover the identity of the would-be conquerers, and seek a way to break the siege.
