I would imagine a skeptic would make the roll an opposed one, although true indoctrination would be in a place where the church can "make the most" of the situation (i.e. behind closed doors).

Atonement would definitely be possible, and may require the reverse process to be accomplished. The difficulty may be based on the length of time since conversion and how well they were "brain-washed" (DC may be the Priest's Bluff/Diplomacy/Intimidation roll as a base).

I would imagine though that from a Role Play perspective, the healing process would take day/weeks/months. Obviously Atonement as a spell may also have an affect.

Hey All,

I have been running the Masks of the Living God module for a few weeks now, and the heroes are now in the thick of it. During the process I started to think how effective the Church of Razmir would be at converting the masses to its way of thinking. Here is what I've come up with. Keen to hear your thoughts:

Converting to the Church of Razmir

The Church of Razmir is one where lies, deception, and out-right brutality and bullying are accepted methods of converting the free citizens of Golarion to the faith of the Living God. The Church often employs methods whereby townsfolk are duped into believing the way of the Mask such as through dubious ceremonies where people are drugged en-mass or through the use of Temples which amount to nothing more than "rehabilitation" and brainwashing camps.

When a person is subjected to the type of treatment that is expected from the faithful priests of the Church of Razmir, a person can often break mentally, or in some cases, rebel. For this reason, the Church employs a method whereby a person’s esteem is broken down over a period of days or sometimes weeks, with the aim being that their personality can be “rebuilt” in the image of The Living God.
--------------------------------
CONVERSION (Skill Use)

Description The priest may use their Bluff, Diplomacy or Intimidation skill (depending on their methodology) in order to attempt to convert a target to the ways of the Church of Razmir. The DC for such an attempt is based on the attitude of the target. Priests of the Church of Razmir usually take their time to cultivate relations with people within a settlement before attempting to assimilate them to the ways of the Living God. Razmiran priests are cunning, and normally before an attempt is made, the priests have carefully selected an individual or target group. Treat all attempts in this fashion to be the same as the use of the Diplomacy skill where the target must be made at least Friendly before conversion can commence.
Time to Use 1d4 hours (normally no more than one attempt is conducted per day)
Effect The target is subject to Razmiran Indoctrination (see below)

--------------------------------
RAZMIRAN INDOCTRINATION

Description A character is subjected to brutal treatment and brainwashing at the hands of members of the Church of Razmir
Type Indoctrination
Save Will DC 5
Frequency 1/day; Failing 3 consecutive saves results in the target being converted
Effect Character becomes broken and a follower of Razmir
Modifiers (applied to the DC)

  • Each additional day the character is subjected to indoctrination: +1
  • Reading the Living God's holy text willingly: +5
  • The subject being of any Good alignment: -2
  • The subject being of Chaotic Good alignment: -5
  • The subject being of any evil alignment: +2
  • The subject having been beaten during their indoctrination: +5
  • The subject is faithful to a good aligned entity: -5
  • The subject is faithful to any entity other than Razmir: -2
  • For each 5 points the converting priest rolls above the required DC to convert the target: +2

That means that if a person fails three saves in a row they are converted. Is that what you want?

That was what I was going for yes, but was perhaps looking for something that worked with existing rules within the system.

Quote:
What is the duration of an Indoctrination period? Random? Is it "this happens until it works?"

Basically it happens until they are converted. I guess its akin to what happens to the main character in 1984. The Church attempts to bend them to their will until they break.

Quote:
You may also consider the following elements: making them one step more "friendly" (similar to the Diplomacy effect) to Razmiran tenets with each failed save. By the end, they become entirely devoted. This makes the transition more gradual, but also thorough and explainable.

I had not considered that. I might do some more research. I also want the reverse to be true when people attempt to "redeem" people who have been "converted".

Andoran

I think I'll add the following as a modification:

Frequency: 1/day; Failing 3 consequent saves results in character being converted

Andoran

OK, so after thinking a little bit more, here is a statified version:

The Church of Razmir is one where lies, deception, and out-right brutality and bullying are accepted methods of converting the free citizens of Golarion to the faith of the Living God. The Church often employs methods whereby townsfolk are duped into believing the way of the Mask such as ceremonies where people are drugged en-mass or through the use of Temples which amount to nothing more than "rehabilitation" and brainwashing camps.

For this reason, the Church employs a method whereby a person’s esteem is broken down over a period of days or sometimes weeks with the aim being that their personality can be “rebuilt” in the image of The Living God.

The following rules apply when a character is forced to endure Razmir's Indoctrination process:

RAZMIR INDOCTRINATION
Description: A character is subjected to brutal treatment and brainwashing at the hands of members of the Church of Razmir
Type: Indoctrination

Can anyone suggest a card sleeve for these cards?

Andoran

Pathfinder Comics Subscriber; Pathfinder Adventure Path Subscriber

Actually, move both to side cart.

Andoran

Pathfinder Comics Subscriber; Pathfinder Adventure Path Subscriber

Cancel both those items thanks, and let the rest through to shipping.

Andoran

Pathfinder Comics Subscriber; Pathfinder Adventure Path Subscriber

It also says some items may be on back order. Any suggestions of which ones?

Andoran

Pathfinder Comics Subscriber; Pathfinder Adventure Path Subscriber

Morning Guys,

I have just updated my latest order and for some reason the order's shipping appears to be excessively high. I have compared it with other orders and none appear to have reach the amount quoted: $71.51

I am happy for it to take longer to reach me (the 10-20 day turn-around) if it means less money on postage (I believe in giving Paizo my hard earned dollars, not UPS).

Have there been any increases of late?

Andoran

Pathfinder Comics Subscriber; Pathfinder Adventure Path Subscriber

Morning Team!

Can you please cancel my subscription of the Pathfinder Adventure Card Game as of right now.

Its been fun, but we rarely get to play Rise of the Rune Lords as it is. Its a great game, but I'm just not that much of a completist :)

Also, please cancel my Pathfinder Cards subscription after Social Combat.

Andoran

Pathfinder Comics Subscriber; Pathfinder Adventure Path Subscriber

According to what I'm reading:

Fame = TPA
Prestige Points = CPA

Right?

Except that perhaps you cam have a TPA with a faction/organisation which is different to that of your Fame rating?

Did I also read that you can only be a member of one faction? Or was there something about belonging to two, but one is always reduced by a factor of something?

Too many books Paizo!

Andoran

Pathfinder Comics Subscriber; Pathfinder Adventure Path Subscriber

Thanks Sara Marie. Again - love your work :)

Andoran

Pathfinder Comics Subscriber; Pathfinder Adventure Path Subscriber

ProPotts, that's exactly what I'm looking for and wondering. Both systems seem to do the same thing but slightly differently.

Andoran

Pathfinder Comics Subscriber; Pathfinder Adventure Path Subscriber

Yes, the Fame and Prestige is taken from the Campaign Guide and used to great effect in Occult Mysteries. The part that's throwing me a curve-ball is that Razmirans are also mentioned in the Faction Guide.

Obviously the Faction Guide was done some time ago.

I'm just wondering if there is a combination of the two systems, a conversion, or if they are two totally different systems that the GM would have to use.

Seems to me its wanting to be used together.

Andoran

Pathfinder Comics Subscriber; Pathfinder Adventure Path Subscriber

Stupid question. I started my Card Subscription with Pathfinder Cards: Tides of Battle, but its saying it was cancelled Monday.

I'm a tad confused as I started my subscription to include that set...

Have I done something wrong myself?

Andoran

Pathfinder Comics Subscriber; Pathfinder Adventure Path Subscriber

Actually I'm doing a writeup for my campaign regarding the Razmiran Church. I found the entries in the Faction Guide and the Occult Mysteries to be compelling but the former is using Prestige, and the later Fame.

I didn't think the faction guide was primarily for PFS Play, although I did note a couple of times they used language to indicate it could also be used in "home play".

Andoran

Pathfinder Comics Subscriber; Pathfinder Adventure Path Subscriber

Thanks for you quick response Sara Marie. Love your outstanding work (as normal) :)

Andoran

Pathfinder Comics Subscriber; Pathfinder Adventure Path Subscriber

Hi Guys,

Just got an e-mail stating that my order was shipping, but it didn't include the stuff from order 3164733 which is what I asked in my order.

Can this be corrected please?

Andoran

Pathfinder Comics Subscriber; Pathfinder Adventure Path Subscriber

I'm having some confusion with how these systems work together. Can someone explain how, if they even do, or if they have been converted to work as one?

Thanks in advance.

Andoran

Afternoon/Morning All,

I have been sapped for the moment of creative talent, and am looking for a background (it doesn't need to be an epic) for an NPC who will joining my party (the NPC will be played by a player who's character is prevented from going on this part of the story). Here are the stats:

Any help would be appreciated.

Andoran

Pathfinder Comics Subscriber; Pathfinder Adventure Path Subscriber

LOL. True that!

Andoran

Pathfinder Comics Subscriber; Pathfinder Adventure Path Subscriber

How's this...

Yet more SPOILERS!:
This is what I included in the latest letter to the party from Adrissant:

"I have been attempting to monitor the conditions in Illmarsh however the happenings there made the situation somewhat problematic, and I was unable to ascertain where you might be able to be contacted next. Indeed, I almost dared hope that you would fail to survive the events transpiring in that town - I would have considered that more than a fair trade for failing to obtain the Raven's Head. Yet, when the figurative smoke cleared, I was disappointed to discover that you had not only emerged from the chaos intact, but were bearing the very relic I had sought for myself. I should point out that this is more of an inconvenience rather than a requirement for my plans. It was, after all, one of the greatest blocks in my research. But as they say, there is always more than one way to skin the proverbial cat."

Andoran

Pathfinder Comics Subscriber; Pathfinder Adventure Path Subscriber

Blast!

Further SPOILERS Ahoy!:
Well looks like I botched that well and good. I can see a ret-con in my future as I've made it quite clear that the Raven's Head is part of the formula. Again - BLAST! I guess another way would be in a letter from Adrissant. He would state something about the heroes thinking that they have the upper hand, but clearly they had it wrong. Perhaps about something that this was a sticking point for him in his research, but that there was always a substitute.

Hey Guys,

I think I favourited your Obsidian Portal Carrion Crown page Joey, so here's a link to mine:

Carrion Crown AP

Andoran

Pathfinder Comics Subscriber; Pathfinder Adventure Path Subscriber

Hello All,

This topic is heavy with spoilers, so is you're a player - BEGONE! But if you're a GM - PLEASE HELP!

Carrion Crown Recipe (SPOILERS):
The following items are required for the Carrion Crown: The spirit of the Head Warden, Lyvar Hawkran (Haunting of Harrowstone, Heart of the Wolf-Lord (Broken Moon), Skull Fragments formed into that of a skull (Broken Moon), and the Raven's Head [ Wake of the watcher).

Firstly, is this correct?

Second, what does each component do - in the creation of the Carrion Crown? Where can I find this mentioned in the AP.

Now my next spoiler:

Events in Wake of the Watcher (SPOILERS):
Given that the heroes end up with the Ravens Head at the end of Wake of the Watcher, how can the following sentence from the last book in the Series, Shadows of Gallowspire, be true: "With the components of the Carrion Crown elixir now assembled..."? Did I miss something REALLY important? The PCs in my game have the Ravens Head, and they believe that the Carrion Crown can't be created now that 1/4 of the components are outside of the Whispering Way's reach.

Again, PLEASE HELP!

Andoran

Pathfinder Comics Subscriber; Pathfinder Adventure Path Subscriber

I have a VERY simple question.

In the first paragraph of the next installment of Carrion Crown (Shadows of Gallowspire), it says this:

"With the components of the Carrion Crown elixir now assembled..."

Did I miss something here?

Aren't they missing something that is now in the hands of the PCs for the last Adventure (Wake of the Watcher)?

Am I missing something?

Andoran

Pathfinder Comics Subscriber; Pathfinder Adventure Path Subscriber

Of the things I wanted in, I got the following:

  • to involve the harbour master
  • involve the Priests of Razmir
  • involve a Molthune spy
  • a short mystery for the heroes to solve
  • to highlight the difference between Lastwall and Nirmathas
  • foreshadow the duplicity of Razmir

4 out of 6 is OK :)

The harbour master has been paid well to remain tight lipped about the gnomish evil-doer who is the one responsible for attacking the tree.

Andoran

Pathfinder Comics Subscriber; Pathfinder Adventure Path Subscriber

It also gave me the opportunity to work in a new player who arrived shortly before the session. He was working with the druid (as that's the only work he could get), and acted as a sort of guide for the rest of the party.

It was a win-win for the players and will extend to a second session.

This is what I came up with:

TITLE: Bag Things Come in Trees
SYNOPSIS: The heroes arrive at Three Pines Ford. Whilst venturing into the town, they answer the call of a local druid who is seeking assistance. Soon after they find that one of three ancient dryad trees are dying, and the heroes must establish what has occurred. Matters get worse when the heroes learn that one of the trees is being poisons from underground, which leads the heroes back to town to track down the would-be culprit. The trail goes cold, but not before learning of the sinister plot unfolding in the forest.

ADVENTURE:

- PART 1 -
The heroes arrive in Three Pines Ford and are greeted by the harbour master Braffolk Gysby. Captain Walren doesn’t trust the man, but says that he is helpful enough. Braffolk explains the current situation in Three Pines Ford, and explains that violence will not be tolerated.

The heroes can purchase goods whilst they are here and there are some magic items to be found in the city.

- PART 2 -
Whilst in the city, they find a poster bill asking for assistance from a local herbalist. If they follow this lead, they meet with a young half-elf druid on the outskirts of the town. There they learn that she has sensed a disturbance in the wilds, and somehow the Three Pines are changing. How she is not sure, but asks the heroes for their help.

The druid, although well prepared to deal with the matter herself, has more pressing matters as she has found that one of the three pines is dying, and she is concocting an elixir to slow the progress of the disease whilst she gains help. She asks the heroes to go to the sick Pine and see if there is something that she has missed.

- PART 3 -
At the tree, the heroes notice that it has withered somewhat compared with the other trees in the area, however they also notice decay in the surrounding area below the tree which resulted in one of two saplings dying. The tree is massive and at some angles looks as though its surface is that of a persons face screaming in pain.

The heroes find signs of collapsed ground about 40 feet from the tree and after a bit of digging (with the druid’s permission of course), find a tunnel leading to the tree.

A check of the tunnel show that it was recently used. The tracks are that of a small size humanoid.

If the heroes move down the tunnel towards the tree, they come to a hollowed out area. Inside they notice the remains of recent occupation (DC15 perception to notice it was used less than a day ago), with a makeshift table or alter constructed at the base of the tree roots. The remains of a purple waxy residue and a red power are scattered about the floor in this makeshift room. A further perception check (DC 15) establishes that the patterns form a ritual circle. The use of detect magic shows that there is residual magic present of a necromantic nature, and a spellcraft check (DC20) identifies that the magic used is some type of poison spell similar to the one used on the honey in Kassen, but far more powerful. A knowledge (arcana) check (DC 25) identifies it as being an older type of magic not seen for hundreds of years in these parts.

Whilst searching, the heroes are set upon by 3 Twig Blights and a Debased Dryad who have been created as a result of the dark magics used.

- PART 4 -
The heroes take a sample of the wax and red powder base to the druid at which point she identifies that both are magic items. She recommends visiting the local magic shop, Ageng and Elyelen’s Vault.

The heroes visit the shop, perhaps purchase some items and continue their investigation.

The shop keeper is a middle aged dwarven woman named Ageng. She is well spoken and helpful.

A check of the shop (DC 15 perception check) shows a shelf which is empty with a fair amount of dust apart from a rectangular shape. This indicates that something was here previously. In fact this was the location of a alchemist’s kit that had been on display for some time, but was recently purchased by a gnome who had recently arrived in the town.

If the heroes do not purchase anything, the dwarf is indifferent and unhelpful. If the heroes purchase something valued at 50gp of more, and successfully make a diplomacy check (DC 10), the dwarf assists them in any way she can. If asked about the item, she mentions the story of the purchase, indicating that the gnome paid full price without haggling.

- PART 5 -
If the heroes haven’t made their presence and purpose discrete within the town, they are followed by Molthune agents working for Andre Colton, a local Molthune spy, with the cover of a local accountant.

If the heroes are overheard mentioning about their quest to go to Tamran, or anything about the Razmirians who stole the amulets, the spy quickly attempts to leave the scene in an attempt to get the information back to their employer.

If the heroes take this bait, run an encounter where the spy is chased through the streets (using Chase Cards).

If captured, the spy refuses to assist. If brought to the attention of the local Militia, the spy is thrown in jail as a Molthune spy.

If the heroes remain in the town for long, they learn that the spy was found hung in his cell the following morning.

Whilst searching, the heroes are set upon by 3 Twig Blights and a Debased Dryad who have been created as a result of the dark magics used.

- PART 4 -
The heroes take a sample of the wax and red powder base to the druid at which point she identifies that both are magic items. She recommends visiting the local magic shop, Ageng and Elyelen’s Vault.

The heroes visit the shop, perhaps purchase some items and continue their investigation.

The shop keeper is a middle aged dwarven woman named Ageng. She is well spoken and helpful.

A check of the shop (DC 15 perception check) shows a shelf which is empty with a fair amount of dust apart from a rectangular shape. This indicates that something was here previously. In fact this was the location of a alchemist’s kit that had been on display for some time, but was recently purchased by a gnome who had recently arrived in the town.

If the heroes do not purchase anything, the dwarf is indifferent and unhelpful. If the heroes purchase something valued at 50gp of more, and successfully make a diplomacy check (DC 10), the dwarf assists them in any way she can. If asked about the item, she mentions the story of the purchase, indicating that the gnome paid full price without haggling.

- PART 5 -
If the heroes haven’t made their presence and purpose discrete within the town, they are followed by Molthune agents working for Andre Colton, a local Molthune spy, with the cover of a local accountant.

If the heroes are overheard mentioning about their quest to go to Tamran, or anything about the Razmirians who stole the amulets, the spy quickly attempts to leave the scene in an attempt to get the information back to their employer.

If the heroes take this bait, run an encounter where the spy is chased through the streets (using Chase Cards).

If captured, the spy refuses to assist. If brought to the attention of the local Militia, the spy is thrown in jail as a Molthune spy.

If the heroes remain in the town for long, they learn that the spy was found hung in his cell the following morning.

I couldn't see an option for combining with an existing pending order.

Hi All,

I am currently running the Price of Immortality Trilogy, and the heroes are on their way to Tamran via the Tourndel River. They are about to make a stop along the way at the Three Pines Ford.

Three Pines Ford is along the northern (or Lastwall) side of the river.

I want a short adventure at the town and for the life of me, can't come up with a short adventure.

I need the following:

  • to involve the harbour master
  • involve the Priests of Razmir
  • involve a Molthune spy
  • a short mystery for the heroes to solve
  • to highlight the difference between Lastwall and Nirmathas
  • foreshadow the duplicity of Razmir

I've entitled the "episode" as Harbour Master's Bluff

Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.

This was my take:

Price of Immortality Wiki - Nirmathas

I'm guessing you have done what I am going to do based on the information gleaned from the Chronicles Pathfinder Podcast. They suggested something similar regarding removing the Pathfinder Society connection.

Regarding the definitions, I had come to similar conclusion as per Ninja's suggestion, and will do up an explanation based on that.

Thanks friends :)

Hi All,

I am currently running the Price of Immortality Trilogy for a bunch of relatively new players. I am also using the opportunity to flesh out a campaign using Obsidian Portal so that I can use it as a kind of Guide to Nirmathas.

Whilst linking things together, and thinking about potential questions the players might have, I noticed that in the 2nd adventure, Masks of the Living God, it mentions the following positions on the Tamran Council:

  • Forest Marshal
  • The Speaker of the Bark
  • The Speaker of the Heart
  • The Speaker of the Leaves

Those positions sound great and stick with theme, but what do their positions entail? I have searched far and wide on the net for a point of reference, or even for something made up, but can't seem to find anything.

Does anyone have some suggestions of what the Speakers jobs entail?

The dullahan soldier riding a nightmare is awesome. Would have come in REAL handy for playing Part 5 of the Carrion Crown AP. Oh well :)

Hi Guys,

Just got my latest order and found that the Wardens of the Reborn Forge Cards were missing. Everything else is intact.

Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.

Hi All,

After further consideration, please cancel my Battles subscription immediately (i.e. I will not receive the Legends of Golarion)

Personally I was hoping for a book with all of the characters from the various Pathfinder Novels. Its always cool to see your favourite character stated out. Alas, I've ended my subscription to this line.
