I am totally bringing my espresso machine along for that.

Got four players. :)

BUT! I wouldn't mind doing it again, like in your game room? Gather four players and I will see if you guys can get further then the other group ;)

@Belafon: Yeah, we are just being interested. :)

Add me to the list. We are planning a Emerald-Spire-Athon (how deep can players get in one sitting till we drop).

The spire goes up to dungeon level 16 and character level 13, but the levels are not that big. If you get 1 xp for each level then you will need to play other things to be able to face the lower dungeon levels.

I just ran this last night. It was a blast.

There was so much roleplaying, the players really loved it.

I went with the kids playing demonic-pathfinders versus militia, it was a nice touch.

A tiefling PC managed to get 'arrested' by the other PCs to get into jail. The tiefling was also so good with locks that it didn't hold him whenever he wanted to.

In the end it was a really awesome experience and the citizens of Dawnton now have a new story to tell 'Eat your vegetables children, or the Tiefling will come out to get you' :)

More of this sort of stuff please!

It sounds like a nasty version of Master of the Fallen Fortress to me. :)

Oh nice! My players loved the Blakros museum. I will be sure to schedule this.

Osirion * Venture-Lieutenant, Netherlands—Utrecht aka Maglok

This all sounds really awesome!! Cant wait.

Osirion * Venture-Lieutenant, Netherlands—Utrecht aka Maglok

OOhhhh yeah! Free reroll city! :D

Osirion * Venture-Lieutenant, Netherlands—Utrecht aka Maglok

Not a big soccer fan, but... dutch! Sorry spain, those rerolls are ours.

Got the PDF as well. Very nice indeed, very nice. This is asking for a few long weekend sessions! :)

Osirion * Venture-Lieutenant, Netherlands—Utrecht aka Maglok

To me it seems up to the PCs to come up with a proper way. I can think of a lot of them off the top of my head.

Knock him out, use illusions, seduce him, intimidate him, bypass him, etc.

Andrew's suggestion is also possible. :)

Ran it as well.

As far as we know there aren't any plans. The reprint of RotR was a anniversary thing. They also don't want to invalidate buying seperate volumes if people know there will be a collected hardcover out later on.

Osirion * Venture-Lieutenant, Netherlands—Utrecht aka Maglok

*Was that hunter* :P My character is a bit of a spontaneous dude.

My hunter determined it wasn't poisoned or diseased, and since he is always dirty and used to bad smells he was like 'better take a look'. *plop* "Waahhh not the beard!"

It was classic. :)

I think my character has learned not to stick his head in unknown waters. As a player, duh, but my character isn't the smartest of the bunch.

A lich? Sweet! Thanks Erik :)

I love myself some good foreshadowed bad guys.

I am starting to feel that itch to play it.

Osirion * Venture-Lieutenant, Netherlands—Utrecht aka Maglok

Don't mind if I do. :) Running some of that scenario in a few weeks. I have a feeling they won't though.

Osirion * Venture-Lieutenant, Netherlands—Utrecht aka Maglok

Ran this last night. Must say Sir Ilivan was a challenge to roleplay. It is a fine line between what is written and the players thinking he is a total douche for not doing anything and thus ignoring him, making fun of him, etc.

In the end it was really cool though. One of the players ended up 'bonding' a bit before Sir Ilivan took the demons head on. He spoke at his funeral, very, very, drunk.

I have to admit I was surprised as to how my players took care of the wasp swarms encounter. They... made their horses run away. Well that worked. :)

Still running Dragon's Delve, been years already and not even half way through. Emeralspire seems to be more doable.

Really looking forward to it. Must have both covers...

I played this last week. We had a blast! Man, this dungeon was creepy (kudos to our GM for RP-ing Valais as well). We managed to get out with 7 evidence points, running for our lives after the 39hp paladin was hit with one 52 dmg attack from the BBEG. (she survived)

Points worth noting:
-We never encountered Aislinn
-The Bull left us alone because we took importance evidence with us without reading it after sifting through the library for an hour+
-BBEG was depicted as a little girl crying blood while speaking in a low voice
-I fell into the cauldron and barely survived
-because of our caution and thirst for lore, combined with lenghty roleplay, the session took nearly 9 hours (!)

All in all, would play again.

This seems familiar, Sup Vincent. :) Don't forget that dwarf that stuck his head pretty much in the ooze-like thing. :)

Osirion * Venture-Lieutenant, Netherlands—Utrecht aka Maglok

I am re-running this soon. It was just that cool.

This was one of the earlier scenarios I GMed and I was surprised how much you could stealth.

And I'll say it again: Playing the Guardian is really awesome. :)

Osirion

I hear they have the usual size.

Woohhooo, can't wait for this one. :)

This is going to end awesomely. :)

I am sure a bunch of our local players wouldn't mind one of those villains to be Torch.

@TritonOne: You can add it yourself. My players love just going off-book.

This Owen guy always keeps popping up. You ran dungeonaday very nicely. Have fun at Paizo! :)

Sign me up for this one! Sweet. :)

Osirion * Venture-Lieutenant, Netherlands—Utrecht aka Maglok

Congratulations! Quite an accomplishment.

Osirion * Venture-Lieutenant, Netherlands—Utrecht aka Maglok

Congratulations! Welcome Simone.

Osirion * Venture-Lieutenant, Netherlands—Utrecht aka Maglok

I'd tell the person to quit it and not let it happen again. Enough players that actually want to play on waitlists after all.

Osirion * Venture-Lieutenant, Netherlands—Utrecht aka Maglok

I am with the shadows bunch. They are seriously killers.

Osirion * Venture-Lieutenant, Netherlands—Utrecht aka Maglok

Congrats and welcome! :)

Osirion * Venture-Lieutenant, Netherlands—Utrecht aka Maglok

Thanks :)

And yes it is. We are currently discussing a set subcultures saturday to promote society and to have a place where we can have more then one table setup. :) That and game nights on thursdays are still going as well!

Osirion * Venture-Lieutenant, Netherlands—Utrecht aka Maglok

Oh boy, so thats lunch AND dinner then. :) Thanks!

Osirion * Venture-Lieutenant, Netherlands—Utrecht aka Maglok

My players loved the first two parts, but we are planning to play this third part on a weekendday instead of game night at the FLGS.

Players that usually come to my table are quite 'roleplay-ey', if you factor that in, are you looking at about 7 hours?

Osirion

Pathfinder Adventure Path, Modules Subscriber

This is excellent! Excellent :D MORE scenarios!

Osirion * Venture-Lieutenant, Netherlands—Utrecht aka Maglok

I just ran this last night. I liked the overall setup, but I do not think the scenario did a good job explaining to the GM what the situation was with all the sages. For example it is mentioned the emerald sage got 'corrupted' or some such, and then the sage of plagues shows up. I did not (at first) get that these are the same.

I did like the cursed items. After two the party didn't dare put on the ring they found (wise!). :)

I also read the 'tavern wench' henchwoman of our linnorm barbarian as a tavern wench. Which was a lotta fun. :)

Keep it up! A little more words on explaining stuff would be nice though. Like with the scarab pathfinders... I know they were there, I just don't find what exactly happened. I know the sidebar, but that didn't really clue me in on everything.

Regardless, good job.

Osirion * Venture-Lieutenant, Netherlands—Utrecht aka Maglok

The online system seems to default (and you can't change it) to 2 PP for GMs on freerpgday scenarios though?

Osirion * Venture-Lieutenant, Netherlands—Utrecht aka Maglok

I ran this last night. I did a lot of prep, including reading this thread. Reading it really helped.

My players seemed to really enjoy themselves. There was a bit of conflict around a alchemist player using fire to burn the book swarm, while other players wanted to safe the books.

The guardian was very well recieved and the warpriest player really wants to buy Glorymane later in his career. The blind caretaker was also well recieved. They bossed her around like lion blades, but then they started talking about their gnomes and the pathfinders and she made a run for the stairs. She did not get that far and the party tied her up and on the bed.

Later on they learned her backstory and they pledged themselves to help her. In return she agreed not to say anything.

My players also managed to finish the foo lion puzzle without triggering it.

I had a cheliax and a grand lodge player for faction missions. The grand lodge player did spend a long time trying to figure out the cipher, but in the end didn't figure it out.

I think all the players really liked the scenario. More like this please. There is a lot of GM prep though and as a new society GM I was a little intimidated, but I have years of GM experience overall so that helped.

Good job writers! :)

I am all for monthly. :)

Name: Elspeth
Race: Human
Class/Level: Inquisitor of Desna 10
Adventure: Vaults of Madness
Location: The vault of silence
Catalyst: The skinned blood vampire rogue 12 guy

The gory details: The party managed to kill two out of four spectres. They then moved on while the spectres moved along in the walls. They triggered the trap in the trapped room and the spectres struck at that moment.

Elspeth chose to run deeper into the dungeon towards the three sarcoffoci in the back. They then fought the two spectres that came out. After they won, the vampire dude had his rawbones move around and flank them. He then attacked.

Over the course of a very epic battle Elspeth ended up with 0 HD and died due to energy drain. The rest of the party barely escaped with their lives.

Elspeth will be turned into a vampire thing as well and the party is determined to end her existence.

Called it.

Was just telling my girlfriend the next one could totally be Osirion. :)

We need more info! :D

Osirion

Intrigued, yet the layout art looks nothing like I imagined it. :) Figured it would feel more 'fantasy'-ey.

Finished skimming my PDF. This has me seriously excited. Why must it be a book 5 and why must I already be running two adventure paths!? Argh!

Great work Hodge!

Osirion, the Dominion of the Black, Numeria, ... So many good ideas!

Osirion

In my campaign I have combined the spear and the amphitheatre from the government district into one big encounter area. It just made more sense for us.

Here is a picture for some ideas if anyone wants to do the same.

Here is a suggestion for a tomb setup. I used this for the undead creature between the artisan and farmer district. It is sort of a crypt under a temple. The concept was that the door on the right did not open until there was a living creature on all four special floorpieces in the corners. The undead creature attacked and then retreated to the room behind the door to recover, opening it by mind controlling four spiders on top of the plates.

Tomb of the undead creature thing
