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

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.

still good


It's a night at the museum and the exhibits are coming alive. One of my favorite pfs scenarios.

One of the best


Mists of Mwangi tasks players with investigating strange occurences within the Blackros Museum, and why some of the staff have gone a little mad.

+ The premise is very simple, but incredibly fun. It provides a "Night at the Museum" style of exploration, leaving players guessing at what they'll come across next.

+ Varied encounters that are interesting and challenging, especially the final fight.

+ Strong theme, and players are potentially given a great roleplaying hook that encourages them to have fun with the adventure.

+ Non-linear progression means the party can explore the museum in any way they want, though it could possibly lead to an anti-climactic finale with the "final encounter" is engaged early.

Mists of Mwangi has long been one of my favorite scenarios and continues to be my go-to adventure for introducing players to the Pathfinder Society. It's a classic and introduces a setting and characters that will continue to be seen in future PFS scenarios over the years.

Good adventure

****( )

This "museum" adventure was lots of fun. The prior party before us was a TPK so a couple wrong choices can be very dangerous. Many opportunities to role play and have fun along with a truly creepy and horror atmosphere.

Agree with the others that this plays quick, 3-4 hours, but that is fine.
