A Pathfinder Society Scenario designed for 1st to 5th level characters (Tiers: 1–2, 4–5).

Pathfinder Lugizar Trantos recently returned from the Mwangi Expanse with haunted eyes and a pack full of strange idols. Absalom's famed Blakros Museum purchased his pieces and Lugizar vanished. The strange monkey idols he pulled from the misty jungles of Mwangi carry with them a fell curse, and now their power has laid claim to the museum. Can the Pathfinder Society uncover the source of the curse in time, or will the Blackros Museum be forever lost to the mists of Mwangi?

Written by Nicolas Logue

Can be rather painful

****( )

So when I played this I though I was quite safe: a level 1 bloodrager with strength 18 and AC 18 while raging. However, my GM borrowed my dice, rolled open every time, and didn't roll below 18 when attacking me. Was very painful :s

It's a nice straightforward adventure in an evocative location, with some groaning humour thrown in ("WHY Nigel WHY?!"). The encounters can be pretty fierce but are fair.

I think the only big downside is that the map is too straightforward. It could do with a few more twists and turns.

Fun, with a side of 'oops'

***( )( )

Played, not GM'ed.

Who doesn't have a love/hate relationship with the Blakros Museum?
This is a fun little scenario, and an example of sandboxing done well. (Though that can make for an anticlimactic finish if you get to the BBEG early while you still have most of your resources.)

The Good:

*The Museum map is well-designed and attractive.
*Blakros NPCs can easily be played in such a way that the GM can have them remember parties or individual PCs who have been to the Museum before. Hilarity may or may not ensue.

The Bad:

*Personally, I'm not fond of monkeys, but that isn't a problem with the scenario.
*More problematic is a party-wide 'save or suck' effect right at the beginning which can profoundly impact the party's ability to survive, let alone triumph. I chose to look at this as an early lesson in "life is not always fair". However, a lot of people like Mists as an 'early exposure to PFS' scenario, and that save or suck can leave a bad taste in the mouth...

Jungle Madness in the Blakros Museum


This is hands down the best early season scenario. I had a blast playing this at origins in Luke Woods excellent 3D terrain. As such I'm a little biased (who doesn't like 3D terrain?). That being said it is an excellent scenario regardless. It's on the easy side, but has a good mix of encounters. The theme, setting and lore are the real winners here. Jungle madness in the Blakros Museum. If you haven't experienced this one yet, get your GM to run it for you!

One terrible problem

*( )( )( )( )

This one is kind of cool. The monsters are fun, the world flavour is good, the visuals it conjures up are neat. So why the low rating? Because the very first thing that happens is that the entire party gets to make a save-or-suck, and if the wrong person or people fail, succeeding could be impossible. There's a potential TPK just from that. And that is on its own such a terrible piece of punishing design that you should just avoid this one completely.

Marvelous Monkey Madness


This adventure has a lot of flavor, introducing players to a lot of PFS lore including Qadira, Osiria, the Mwangi Expanse, and the Blackros Museum. There are also some interesting role-playing opportunities. The combats are varied but not especially deadly. All of this combined makes this an excellent introductory adventure for PFS newbs.
