For a five player group what changes should I look towards? As it stands the xp rewards are too low so keep the encounters as they are and use the faster xp track? Do I need to increase the challenge of some of the encounters or does it present a challenge as it stands?

I am pretty new to the GM side of things so all suggestions are appreciated.

I've been running Carrion Crown without XP. It's been quite successful, we are 1/2 way through the final adventure. The beginning of each adventure tells you what level the PCs should be at each point. It saves time on a lot of book keeping and keeps things running smooth.

The Haunting of Harrowstone was probably the best adventure in Carrion Crown.

How does the Shadow Lodge "No One Left Behind" prestige award work? Does it raise you from the dead along with recovering your body? What is the time frame? If you die mid adventure can you finish the adventure the next day or in a couple of hours?

Hehe, I feel a bit foolish. Thanks!

Thanks! Can you tell me where to find that in the rules, just for my information?

Does this adventure need to be run as large event for credit or can it be run with my home group with just one table, one GM, and no Overseer?

I've had the PDF for almost a year now, but the Inner Sea World Guide Chapter is too big to run smoothly. There is a considerable amount of lag when loading each page. Is there any chance to get that chapter broken down to a more manageable size? Maybe one file per nation?

Actually it's of great use. Thanks for posting. We are going to finish Caromac Tuesday. I love the idea of the PCs finding the beast dead.

I've been looking, but I can't seem to find one, is there a spell that changes the type of melee damage a weapon does? For example changing an axe to bludgeoning damage.

Does anyone know if this spell:

can be used on unwilling targets?

If it can't why would you cast it?

I have a question about the prerequisites for this feat. It says: Grit class feature or Amateur Gunslinger feat, Dodge, Mobility.

Does this mean that if you have the Grit class feature you don't need Dodge and Mobility?

Cool, thanks for everyone's help!

Yes you do. Or maybe I misread the question. Level 1 characters - yes register. Level 13 copy - no don't register. It sounds like you do not already have legal, level 1 PFS characters registered so, think of the process involved this way:


  • Create your level 1 character, register it.
  • Create a 13th level copy of that character and play the mod.
  • You will apply the Chronicle to your level 1 character, which hopefully takes it to level 2 if you earned full XP.
  • Your GM will report the PFS ID of the level 1 character.

Same with Iron Medusa, however you would technically be able to do a full rebuilt from level 1 to level 14 if you found some of your choices didn't work so well on the 13th level copy. However, if you were happy with the 13th level copy you could just level it up 1 level to 14 and go from there.

Hope that made sense, have fun! :)

Two of my players have PFS characters, the other two do not. They are going to make level one characters and register them tonight. We made completely different level 13 character not based on our currently active PFS characters. The rules seemed to suggest that was okay.

I'm actually running both adventures and will need to apply the XP to my PSF character. Just trying to make everything is legit. This is my first time running anything for PFS. I already registered the event.

I ran the first two adventures of Curse of the Crimson Throne on weekends, before work and life got in the way. My players loved it.

We started a new game on Tuesdays with a few different players which is now an Age of Worms campaign run by someone else. He is doing the same thing. No XP just we just level our characters when he feels we need to.

In my opinion as a player and a GM I love it. There isn't a grind to get XP to level up. Our Age of Worms campaign will probably finish up by August, which is when I plan on starting Carrion Crown. Here's an estimate of how I'm going to level the PCs for Haunting of Harrowstone:

Part One: 1st Level
Part Two and Three: 2nd Level
Part Four: 3rd Level
End: 4th Level

Since I'm not sure how it will it play out. It will be flexible. If I find that the PCs are having a hard time. I will tell them to level their characters for the next session.

I actually got rid of XP when running APs. Each adventure suggests what level the PCs should be at each point. I tell my player to level their character each time we reach the next point in the adventure. It has really made things easy. I don't have to worry about adding more encounters and I still make the boss monsters a little tougher.

To print the maps without the any of the text, highlight the image in adobe reader by clicking on it, then right click. The option copy image should appear (if you have you have adobe acrobat you can just use the save as.. option and save it as a jpg). Copy the image to the clip board. Open MS paint or any other picture editing program (I use photoshop) and paste the image onto the page use edit/paste or ctrl-v.

The current APs draw from a lot of various WotC sources, most of these are not OGC. How will this affect the Pathfinder APs? Obliviously we won't see NPCs outside the Core classes.

The party I am DMing is pretty standard and have found that it works very well for STAP.

Dorhanna Trannyth - Human Favored Soul
Ghim - Dwarven Figher
Slayn - Human Wizard
Lucian - High Elf Bard
Dolph - Hadozee Rogue
Kahl - Human Monk

Could use a ranger and some undead turning, but otherwise the party works very well together.

Funeral Procession is a great idea, but I think you can change the slaughter house to be one of the Whaling companies in the Azure District with some minor adjustments.

I know at some point HTBM, the text mentions that if Urol is dead... So my guess would be that he doesn't need to survive.

Thank you for your replies. It looks as though it will be a siege at the Vanderboren Manor.

How long does it take Drevoraz to reach the Manor? My PCs arrived back in saserine about 22 hours about he left. If Drevoraz hoofed it wouldn't that mean the PCs get to the Manor before him and Bullywugs, even with the festival in full swing?

May I get a copy also?
