For 4-6 PCs of Level 1
The Soularium sits in a back alley in the Temple District. Ostensibly it is a house of charity, a place where the downtrodden come and are received with open arms but in truth it is the lair of Q’xetl, an unbound quasit who is collecting souls. When he gathers enough, he plans to use them to bargain himself into a higher position in the Abyss.

An Endzeitgeist.com review
This pdf clocks in at 2 pages and is a mini-dungeon. This means we get 2 pages content, including a solid map (alas, sans player-friendly version) and all item/monster-stats hyperlinked to d20pfsrd.com’s shop and thus, absent from the pdf.
Since this product line’s goal is providing short diversions, side-quest dungeons etc., I will not expect mind-shattering revelations, massive plots or particularly smart or detailed depictions, instead tackling the line for what it is. Got that? Great!
This being an adventure-review, the following contains SPOILERS. Potential players may wish to jump to the conclusion.
The Soularium is pretty uncommon in that it does not represent a classic dungeon, but rather a cult’s dread operation disguised as a charity – what at first looks like a benevolent organization, quickly turns out to be the soul harvesting operation of a nasty quasit and his faithful cult – including and alignment seeing statue and pretty concise defenses – conceivably well–crafted for such a small module and sporting actual traps and the like herein.
Editing and formatting are very good, I noticed no significant glitches. Layout adheres to a beautiful 2-column full-color standard and the pdf comes sans bookmarks, but needs none at this length. Cartography is full color and surprisingly good for such an inexpensive pdf, but there is no key-less version of the map to print out and hand to your players. Stats, as mentioned above, obviously are hyperlinked to the SRD.
Rory Toma’s Soularium is an interesting, fun sidetrek with cool defenses, nice ideas and a solid cartography to boot. There is not much to complain about here – hence, my final verdict will clock in at 5 stars.
