The Wormwood Mutiny, an adventure by Richard Pett with support articles by Jesse Benner, Sean K Reynolds, Steven D. Russell, and F. Wesley Schneider, and fiction by Robin D. Laws, was released on April 25, 2012. It is the first of six chapters in the pirate-themed Skull & Shackles Adventure Path.

Captives of FortunePirates take whatever they please, whether it be ships, plunder, or people! The adventurers wake to find themselves press-ganged into the crew of the pirate ship Wormwood, the vessel of the nefarious Captain Barnabus Harrigan. They'll have to learn how to survive as pirates if they're to have any hope of weathering rough waves, brutal crew members, enemy pirates, ravenous beasts, and worse. But when fortune turns to their favor, it's up to the new crew to decide whether they'll remain the pirate's swabs or seize control and set sail for adventures all their own.

This volume of Pathfinder Adventure Path launches the Skull & Shackles Adventure Path and includes:
