5E-C04-SCREEN1

A Pathfinder/3.5E Compatible Adventure for 4-6 PCs of Levels 4-5
Naytella, a goddess of revelry and relaxed pleasure, had few shrines. Authorities feared what they couldn't control and her belief in freedom of spirit worried many, causing them to drive her scattered followers underground. So when the bard Villeim Teatteri discovers an ancient site dedicated to Naytella, he knows what he must do; convert an entire town to her calling! But how to do that, and where to start? Everyone likes to see a good show and have a chance to share a drink or three with new friends, so Teatteri and his theatrical troupe set out to ensure both of these happen. But more is going on behind the scenes than meets the eye, and a voice of dissent asks the PCs to help restore order. It's time to step forward and face the music for the party, as they find out that the play's the thing to catch the conscience when adventuring!

C05: The Foul Passage of Progress

A Pathfinder/3.5E Compatible Adventure for 4-6 PCs of levels 6-8

As sometimes happens in the world, blind luck places the PCs in a position where they are the only people who can help. Jyrkannelaki has a problem, and the town council's attempt to deal with it seems to have made matters worse. Trade has halted and that means money is drying up, so how will people live? Plus the problem is in the way of the PCs' progress; surely they can do something about the mysterious disappearances of the members of the Cleaners and Shapers Guild, the people that keep the access stairway to the sea passable.

A request to find out what has happened leads to an offer of assistance and a chance to help a lot of people out. All that is required is that the players descend the stairway and rescue the missing townsfolk, although they have been missing a week, which isn't a good sign. Oh, don't forget that the stairway is trapped, gets slick with algae and sea water and is used to dump all manner of waste. What could possibly be off-putting about any of that to experienced adventurers?

Also included in "The Foul Passage of Progress":

  • Maps and Illustrations by 3x ENnie Award winning Cartographer Todd Gamble
  • A new monster type, the Toxic Sludge Creature, with guidance on the effects of different types and mixes of toxic waste
  • A new monster, the Kelp Guardian, a huge aquatic plant that aggressively defends a territory
  • A range of new traps, including exploding balls of toxic waste
  • A new spell, livekelp, for aquatic druids
  • Randomised encounters to ensure the adventure never plays the same way twice
  • Helpful print-out pages for GMs to track events and outcomes during the adventure

C07: The Sussurus Tomb

C7 COVER

 

A Pathfinder compatible adventure designed for four to six PCs of levels 5-7

In a silent section of the forest, in the center of a circle of massive runestones, lies the Sussurus Tomb. As night falls, flickering light streams upwards from a staircase that is carved into the surrounding stone. Every night that the moon passes into view overhead, the dissonance of whispering voices can be felt, but never fully heard. The tomb partially lies open but undisturbed, as those who answer the call of the sibilant sounds and descend the stairs rarely return. And those that do return endure the sleep of the damned for rest of their short, miserable lives...

Also included in "The Sussurus Tomb":

  • Interactive maps and illustrations by Antal Kéninger and Zoltán Bárány at Lord ZseZse Works
