Come to the Phaendar Market Festival!

Wednesday, March 22, 2017

The friendly local faces of Phaendar.
Illustrations by Dario Jelusic

Once a season we transform our town into the greatest celebration of trade and community in Golarion! Come meet hundreds of other Nirmathi for music, food, and trade! Join us all for a week of fun and community, and stock up for the coming season.

This season's festival will include:

  • Traders from Tamran and Exotic Druma!
  • The Varisian Musical Stylings of Jet!
  • Archery Demonstrations by our Local Legend, Aubrin the Green!
  • Fireworks!
  • And Wee Patterson, the Tiniest Aurochs!

Anything and everything you want will be at the festival: fruits and vegetables, fine cured meats, furs and pelts, seeds and tools, and all manner of woodwork! Space at our very own Taproot Inn is limited, but ample spaces is available for pitching tents in the surrounding fields, so reserve early or bring your own camping supplies. Whatever you choose, everyone loves the festival!

Normally, celebrations are reserved for the tail end of the Adventure Path, but the Ironfang Invasion treats players to dessert first by starting everything off at a festival. The biggest social event of western Nirmathas is in swing as the adventure begins, bringing over a thousand attendees ranging from local farmers to trappers, to even the occasional adventurer! The PCs can spend their starting wealth on rare treasures, from fried squirrel to paper bullettes, all before raiding a single dungeon!

Sure nothing bad will happen at this delightful, local tradition. The PCs are free to let their guard down, if only for a moment. Death and destruction surely won't appear without warning...

Oh... oh dear.

If you'd like to capture some of the feel of this Adventure Path in music, here are just a few soundtrack suggestions to get you started, lifted from a few of my favorite video games. In fact, I listened to many of these while developing the adventures you're about to play!

  • Bastion
  • Dragon Age: Inquisition
  • The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim
  • Final Fantasy 9
  • Journey
  • The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time
  • Ni No Kuni
  • Never Alone
  • Unravel
  • World of Warcraft: Legion

Awesome!

And the Bastion soundtrack is so, so damned good.

That looks like an orc holding the sword to the dude's throat. So sick of greenwashing...

Hm. I feel the need to caper in madcap glee...


Hey! I'm getting killed in Skyrim as we speak!

It turns out nothing attracts a giant entourage like a pissed off Blood Dragon.

It seems Rhyna and Jet are about to hit the terminal stage of Joker Toxin, poor dears.

...is Leslie Knope organizing this season's festival, by any chance?


Pathfinder Adventure Path Subscriber

Hmm, between this, Rise of the Runelords, and Wrath of the Righteous, I think I am going to avoid anything resembling a festival in Golarion.

Where is your citizenship now, you Molthuni @#$%&s!?!?

Haha, I know, right!?

Festivals on Golarion are almost as bad as weddings in Westeros/Essos. All the bad things happen there!

Don't forget Feast of Ravenmoor and Carnival of Tears!

Festivals have become Pathfinder's taverns.

And Murderer's Mark!

Grand Lodge

PFS Scenario #8-06 has something like that innit too, don' it?


What kind of music could represent Jet's (and thus Varisian) music?

edit: I'm listening to all the soundtracks but there's about 6 to 7 hours of it. I'll probably start Book 1 at the Inn so a cool song to wow the PCs would be ideal.


Poor Kining, why isn't she partying in the festival? :P

Okay, you know what? You guys don't get any parties any more!

Maybe the solution is to have two parties instead? I know two-party systems have gotten a bad rap, but...

I'd like an AP to start with a battle and suddenly have a festival break out.
