A dark urban horror adventure for 5th-level Pathfinder Roleplaying Game characters.

The strange city of Carrion Hill has long loomed over the surrounding swamps in eastern Ustalav, yet its rulers have shifted many times through the centuries. Often enough that only a few sinister scholars and curious minds know the true nature of the hill’s original inhabitants—vile and depraved cultists of the Old Gods. Yet this morning, a dreadful recrudescence rises from the depths of buried nightmare in the vaults below Carrion Hill. A monster stalks the twisted alleys of the city, spreading panic before it and leaving destruction in its wake. Can the Carrion Hill Horror be stopped?

Carrion Hill is an adventure for 5th-level characters, written for the Pathfinder Roleplaying Game and compatible with the 3.5 edition of the world’s oldest RPG. The adventure features a mix of urban and dungeon sites, and draws its inspiration from the popular writings of H. P. Lovecraft.

This adventure is set in the sinister country of Ustalav in the Pathfinder Chronicles campaign setting, but can easily be adapted for any game world.

Awesome flavor horrid repitition

****( )

Ok, this adventure runs you through this creepy lovecraftian city and outer planes creatures. You need to venture through the city to stop something horrible from coming into the world.

Lots of flavor and interesting ideas, but once you figure out what to do. It is a hunt this guy down, and then this guy, and then this guy, and then this guy. As you burst into their homes and places of work to kill them for the error of their ways.

They make it open ended by deciding who you want to murder first, but beyond that it is pretty linear.


Excellent non-linear adventure

*****

Horror + Investigation + Non-linear plot + Interesting final match

So very totally cool, 5 stars!


good stuff!

****( )

High quality. Strange, disturbing, repulsive ... awesome. Loses one point for predating APG (if you've run it you know exactly what I mean).


*****

I've reviewed this book over on RPGGeek.com.


Horror story at its best, don't miss this module!

*****

My perspective on this scenario is as a Game Master. Be warned, spoilers may follow!

Story
The idea behind Carrion Hill is a typical Cthulhu-like investigation that manages to be brought in Pathfinder with unparalleled talent. What I really love is the constant mystery linked to a non-linear structure and an interesting setting. Did I mention the Mythos?
Story score: 5/5

Roleplay
Many roleplaying occasions are present in this outstanding module, and will make it truly memorable. The asylum especially stands out in this regard.
Roleplay score: 5/5

Encounters
Those encounters are tough but varied and original. The vat zombies encounter was exceptionally memorable, and there isn't one encounter I'd remove from the scenario.
Encounters score: 5/5

Mechanics
The idea behind the BBEG's evolution is an outstanding one, and remains one of the strongest points of this module. If the players realize it, this will give them a hell of a motivation to end things quickly.
Mechanics score: 5/5

Make no mistake, this module is probably one of the best Paizo has published so far. Mr. Pett brings his A-game with this one!
Total: 5/5
