This. If the prices get too high threaten to let the other PCs handle the haggling ;-)
And then (let them) get creative and work around or through the obstacle. Have some one steal the item. Or worse.
Kobold Press' High Ghouls the Darakhul have this:
Hunger for Flesh:
Hunger for Flesh: : You must consume a meal of raw meat each day or suffer the effects of starvation. You use your Charisma when making checks regarding starvation and always suffer lethal damage from its effects. If you suffer damage from starvation, you become “fatigued” until the damage is healed. (Undead are not typically susceptible to fatigue; hunger, however, will make a darakhul feel effects identical to fatigue.) Damage from starvation cannot be healed by magic or anything else but spending 1 hour consuming an amount of raw meat equal to a Small creature. Separate from the starvation hazard, if you’re a darakhul spellcaster, you only recover your spells after enjoying a leisurely, 1-hour-long meal of raw meat. If you need to heal starvation damage and recover spells, you must eat two Small creatures over a 2-hour period. While you will gladly devour any meat any time you can, you can regain spells only once every 24 hours.
More Stonehaven Grippli. I like the bowyer...
Dark Sword Miniature has some nice & hilarious frog people including a frog bishop, bard & more... (Check picture search.)
(Sorry for lmgtfy linkage, apparently I can't get urls from google searches on my iPhone)
For even more links check out this post, which links to several generators some inspired by rules from the 3.5 DMG (which work great in conjusnction with the settlement rules), and some by the Medieval Society Guides i believe.
For newer stuff FGG's Lost Lore: Town of Glory which presents a new rules mini-system for building and growing frontier communities, giving players and GMs multiple options to add onto their existing game play.
Also check out Raging Swan Press Town Backdrop and Village Backdrop series pdfs if you need a smaller settlement in the vicinity or their GMs'Miscellany products like Urban Dressing.
That's a great deal!
Wild Stalker archetype gives lowlight vision and perception stuff. Maybe look into nature oracle dip? Or a feral shifter or nature fang druid? Hunter maybe? And then into the nature warden prestige class!
Aragorn is a multiclass character probably. And he does have some healing and poison detection/slow poison ability, so low level spells might still fit.
You know surprisingly urban ranger archetype seems to be stackable with Wild Stalker which gives rage at lvl 4. And/or take a bloodrager (destined bloodline?) dip (no alignment restriction for bloodrage)
I want someone to build Lu Tze the history monk and of course the Patrician.

If it's a myth you're all going from the wrong angle. It's not a PvP arena, it's a myth/story.
Also an adult green is only CR 12. So solution is simple. High level elven heroes.
Archetypal protagonists brainstorming:
For the true story I would cast the dragon as one of the part members in disguise. But this would not be in the publicly available version of the myth. Only hints of it. Also myths can be contradicting and muddled. Have several versions.
Also read up on Hero's Journey a.k.a. monomyth.
Though I kind of struggle imagining a bronze age elven society. Elves always had this advanced ,etallurgy and society/culture though in harmony with nature vibe, even for ancient times.
See also this thread for ideas about clever green dragon encounters
For Darklands like products for PFRPG check out Cyclopean Deeps from Frog God Games. They also have lots of dungeons and super dungeons and adventures though I'm not sure which of the are particularly for an underdark aside from CD. Might be one in their One Night Stands series...
Kobold Games has described their awesome Underdark Kingdom of the Ghouls in several products: Advanced Races Darakhul (High Ghouls), the hard to get Empire of Ghouls, Imperial Gazetteer of Morgau & Dorgesh. They also have a race book on Derro iirc
I believe there's a few books on Duergar by 3pps including RSP's Duergar of the Obsidian Citadel. RSP also just introduced a new line with underground settlement called Subterranean Enclave and has excellent GM help books on underdark encounters iirc. edit: check out Caves & Caverns and their Dungeon Dressing and Dungeon Denizens lines. Also maybe check out their Ancient Empires of the Troglodytes or the classic module Shadowed Keep of the Borderlands.
See also this old thread on an under dark/dungeon crawl sandbox, which also mentions a few 3.5 gems from Goodman Games.
AAW has the highly lauded Rise of the Drow super module which has spider demon worshipping drow.
2e has the famous Night Below boxed set, and a Dungeon adventure & Dragon article by Wolfgang Baur first detailing the Empire of Ghouls.
Wolfgang Baur went for exclusive products with the early Open Design patronage projects (way before Kickstarter), but they phased this out more and more. There is probably a good reason for that. Drop him a mail to hear his thoughts about it.
Recent kickstarters such as Southlands or Razor Coast did include some Kickstarter exclusive rewards, but these were mostly super expensive far out products like the letterpress book from Southlands or super deluxe versions like the metal forged version of one of the FGG Kickstarter books, maybe Sword of Air? Or the extra special Rise of the Runelords edition by Paizo. Or extra material/props like the chest and coins and vellum map from a Razor Coast.
Sometimes an exclusive bonus module is KS exclusive (FGG and Kobold did it). Rite Publishing made the Tarnished Soukh HC a Kickstarter exclusive recently, but the softcover is available in color in retail.
I would not restrict a HC and especially not a color version of your core product to Kickstarter if I were you. Exclusivity will generate some hype but in the long run it's detrimental. Maybe make a special KS exclusive bonus module but don't restrict the central book...
Make at least the color version available to all.
I think Steve's attitude is probably more widespread in Kickstarter backers than you might think. I certainly tend towards that too.
Check out the pledge levels of FGG and Kobold kickstarters for examples.
Also more input about the content, concept and crew is IMO needed. Personally I'm not that excited yet. I need more details. If Boomers stuff from the Tumbler makes it in I'm hyped. He spent a lot of thought on the concept and made some gorgeous high level NPCs. Including the tarrasque or even several tarrasques (dare I say mythic tarrasque) tying this to Rovagug being freed would certainly up the interest IMO.
That depends. What do you want/need?
Raging Swan comes to mind first though for GM stuff. Did you know about their Patreon?
Rite also does Adventure Quarterly the spiritual successor to Dungeon magazine.(several excellent short to medium long adventures per issue).
Four Dollar Dungeons does excellent adventures for $4. Run Amok Games does great adventures too.
Check out this thread on 3pp campaign settings for what is out there ...

Raging Swan Press has two great 1st level adventures but they actually do not start in a town iirc: Shadowed Keep on the Borderlands, and Retribution.
Four Dollar Dungeons has 3 very excellent 1st level adventures (The Horn of Geryon , Key to Marina and Firemaker) all starting in towns iirc, though I'm not sure how much of the towns are detailed. The modules are super awesome judging from the reviews though. They also have more low level adventures.
Frog God Games has several 1st level modules starting in a town:
Stoneheart Valley compiles and updates three classic 3.5 old school flavored modules starting at lvl1 in a small town.
For 3.5 there's the lavish lvl 1-15 Goodman Games' Castle Whiterock which details a campaign in and around (under) a town.
Good one. Let's gather new ideas...
