Master of the Fallen Fortress
Illustration by Tyler Walpole

Have you ever wondered just what is inside those siege castles outside Absalom? Have you ever smelled the heady stench of troglodytes in the morning? Have you always wanted to join the Pathfinder Society, but could never figure out just how to impress them? Or do you want to know just a little more about the Advanced Player's Guide?

Well, you're in luck! Free RPG Day is almost upon us! On Saturday, many of you can go to your Friendly Local Game Store and pick up all sorts of free RPG products, including Paizo's own offering, Master of the Fallen Fortress, by yours truly. Check the official Free RPG Day Retailer Locator to see if stores in your area are participating.

(PaizoCon attendees will each get a free copy of the module at the show, and, starting Monday morning, everyone will be able to download a FREE PDF or buy a $5 print edition right here at paizo.com, so no need to despair if your store isn't on the Free RPG Day list!)

So what's all the hoopla about? Master of the Fallen Fortress takes a group of 1st-level PCs into one of the ruined siege castles that litter the Cairnlands outside Absalom. While it's a standalone Pathfinder Module, the adventure can also be used as an introduction to Pathfinder Society Organized Play, Paizo's constantly evolving, worldwide mega-campaign. And even better, it gives a preview of the six new iconic characters from the upcoming Advanced Player's Guide, statted up as pregenerated characters to get you right into the action!

Adventure is coming your way this weekend, just around the corner and down the road. Defeat the Master of the Fallen Fortress, rescue a captive Pathfinder, and on the way, say hi to Alahazra, Alain, Balazar, Damiel, Feiya, and Imrijka for me!

(To allow GMs to prepare to run Master of the Fallen Fortress on Free RPG day, we're releasing the Chronicles Sheet and pregenerated character sheets as a free download here (1.2 MB zip/PDF).)

Wohoo, finally get to go somewhere hosting Free RPG Day :) Lubbock here I come!!


Awesome! Feiya is from Irrisen? I thought she was Tien? Unless she was born this side of the Crown?

I'm really excited to see these guys write-ups now, especially Alhazra, a divine caster from Rahadoum!!

She is indeed Tien... but she was born in Irrisen.


Thanks for the previews. How very nice. I'm too tired now so I will read them tomorrow. :-) ...so I won't miss a thing.

Just out of curiosity, will module subscribers get a copy of this?

Nope. It falls outside the normal module schedule and is a promotional item for Free RPG Day. However, there will be some available starting on Monday for $5, so you can just order one and put it into your sidecart to ship with your next sub shipment.

So... are these pregens using the final version of the rules? Because they look a lot like the latest version of the playtest.

These pregens were based off the final playtest versions of the classes, as Master of the Fallen Fortress went to print before the APG. There have been some changes to the classes between the playtest and the final, but they are relatively minor. We'll be previewing some of these changes (and more!) in the coming weeks.
