A Pathfinder Society Scenario designed for 12th level characters (Tier 12).

You and your fellow veteran Pathfinders are sent, along with Venture-Captain Adril Hestram, to revolution-torn Galt to deliver the famous sword, the Pale Maiden, to the newly re-opened Woodsedge Lodge. All is not as it seems, however, when the lodge is attacked during a ceremony and a famous Pathfinder is murdered. The Lady of the Lodge, Venture-Captain Eliza Petulengro, puts you on the mission to solving the murder and catching those responsible.

Requiem for the Red Raven is the first part of the four-part Eyes of the Ten campaign arc. It is a two-slot scenario and is meant to be played in 8 to 10 hours.

It is followed by Pathfinder Society Scenario #54: Eyes of the Ten—Part II: The Maze of the Open Road.

Written by Erik Mona

This scenario is designed for play in Pathfinder Society Organized Play, but can easily be adapted for use with any world. This scenario is compliant with the Open Game License (OGL) and is suitable for use with the Pathfinder Roleplaying Game.

Nice Idea. Terrible Execution.

*( )( )( )( )

So just finished playing this last week we all got through alive. The basic story framework is great although the main npc characters all jump to spurious conclusions based on no real evidence or anything resembling a thought process oh and in typical PFS fashion are entirely useless.
The actual encounters are terrible and clearly not written by someone familiar with the pathfinder rule set. All the combats start with a bunch of prescripted nonsense designed to try to kill as many players as possible before they are allowed to act.
If you have the option to avoid this module do so. Even worst than echoes of the everwar which has 6 overlapping paralysis auras ambush you in a 5ft wide corridor.

BOOM! Mind blown!

*****

This scenario is a wake up call meant to show you what high level play is meant to be, and it does an excellent job. This is not for the faint of heart and you should absolutely get the very best GM and group of players you can to run this with, but it is an absolute blast from start to finish. Every second of this scenario whether it be in combat or during role playing your character has real consequences for the rest of the series. I can't recommend this enough.

Edit: Playing a good selection of scenarios from season 0-1 is ideal, but a great GM like the one I had can overcome this and make it feel completely relevant even now(I had played a fair number of the relevant scenarios, but only a few on the character that played this series.)


****( )

This is a GM review. The party I had was a human monk, human magus/cleric, human wizard and elf witch.

Firstly, the plot is really nice and it was fun just to read it all before playing. Nice to have a PFS scenario that actually has me excited to run it.

There is plenty of role play opportunity and my players really got into it when the opportunities presented themselves. However I did get the impression right or wrong that the author expected a lot more role play than I felt was necessary.

The combats range from really hard (we lost the monk quickly unfortunately) to being a suitable challenge. There is a lot to keep track off though in some of them which was hard work.

The scenario sets itself up for a 8-10 hour slot but this is doable in about 6-7 even with the role play. More than that and I think you are dragging things out unnecessarily.


The rumours were true.

*****

This scenario shows you what it means to become a seeker level Pathfinder. The rules have changed, and you'd better adapt quickly.

Announced! And the first-ever Tier 12 scenario. Also the first Pathfinder Society scenario written by Paizo's own Erik Mona.

I was wondering when this'd be coming along. Erik hinted at it quite a while ago. How many adventures are planned for the Eyes of the Ten series?


Four. It resolves in #67 in December 2010--and the ending is gonna be sweeeeet.

Paizo Employee Chief Creative Officer, Publisher

I'm working on this over my Christmas vacation.

It is going to be awesome.


Is this the same Red Raven as the one in module W3?


It sure is. :-)

I should also point out that we're in the process of changing this price--it should be $7.99 for this scenario. Why the price increase? This is our first ever 2-round (or 10 hour) scenario, a little experiment to see if (1) a 2-round scenario will do well and (2) to see if launching the Tier 12 arcs with a 2-rounder is a good idea or not.

Well, the title certainly has me intrigued!

I'd hate to see the Red Raven go ... he seems like a top bloke!

Liberty's Edge

Ooh, two-round tier-12 by Erik Mona - I think it will sell itself!

Time to level up my PFS character.

Paizo Employee Franchise Manager

Interesting. Will this necessarily need to be run in one sitting of 8-10 hours, or could it be run on subsequent weeks with sessions of 4-5 each? I like the idea of a longer scenario, but having it be a single double-length session might make it hard to schedule for groups that meet during the week or at locations with time limits.


It's designed to be run in two 5-hour slots. There's a single chronicle sheet at the end of the second slot.

Wow.

Paizo Employee Chief Creative Officer, Publisher

It is super-long and packed with awesome. Or it will be by the time it comes out. At the moment it is a bit larger than a glorified outline.

Any requests?

Out of curiosity, what's the target page count?

-Skeld

Paizo Employee Chief Creative Officer, Publisher

Since it's a PDF, it doesn't really have one. I'm guessing it will be about twice as long as a "normal" PFS scenario, but as I'm still writing it that's guesswork at this point.

Seriously, though...if this is set in Galt (which I imagine will be the case, since it's a follow-up to an adventure set there), I'd love to see one of the guillotines. So far the two adventures set in Galt don't revolve around the Revolution (or feature it at all) and it's such a defining element of the nation, so the result is that the adventures feel too modular. If I'm going to Galt, I want to know I'm in Galt. If the adventure is actually set somewhere else, well then, don't include Galtish stuff. Also, some meaty backstory on the mysterious Red Raven would be cool too.

Paizo Employee Chief Creative Officer, Publisher

This thing is going to be packed with Revolutionary stuff, rest assured.

Thus far there will be no flumphs.

I do not think that is in the best interest of the Wiki. You will probably appreciate the Easter eggs I'm putting in this thing more than anyone.

I retract my last statement.

I'm a little sad that my PFS scenarios are coming out in the months immediately preceding and following this one, though, since this scenario is sure to eclipse them both.

Paizo Employee Chief Creative Officer, Publisher

We'll see. Lots of cool ideas, but lots of work to do before they are all down on paper.

Still, I'm pretty excited by what's in store.

Can't wait to read your adventures!

Please, just no falchion wielding Zvarts.

LOL. No worries.

Paizo Employee Chief Creative Officer, Publisher

Everything is coming together swimmingly for this. I hope to run a playtest very soon.


Is it way bigger? Just wondering why it's 7.99?

Answered above - it is a double-scenario.


I'm finishing up the sequel to this scenario this week and I have to say, this is going to be a mind-blowingly awesome story arc! I can't wait to see Erik's final piece, as all I've seen to date is the outline. I encourage everyone to get their PCs up to 12th level ASAP so you can play this. You have no idea what you're in for!

Double length, you say?

Paizo Employee Chief Creative Officer, Publisher

Yes. He and pretty much his entire gang are in this one, along with lots of other well-known PFS NPCs (Adril Hestram, Eliza Petulengro, Osprey and some surprises).

I've been enjoying writing it!


This scenario is delayed by at least a week. Sorry for any inconvenience this may cause. :-(

Just picked up on the details of this one - sounds intriguing and a lot of fun: excellent.

Question for planning please:

As it is Part 1 of 4 and is already APL 12 and double length (2 XP?), how best to ensure that one's PC is not too high level to play Parts 2 to 4 before retirement with the same PC that does Part 1?

Cheers

The double length scenario will still provide only a single Chronicle. Each level 12 PC may play through an entire lvl 12 arc before retirement. They never advance to 13th level over the course of the arc.


No XP is given on a Tier 12 arc chronicle sheet. There will be additional details about the Tier 12 arcs in 2.2 of the Guide.

So is this module off the schedule completely now? It doesn't show up on the PFS product page at all. Just wondering when it's going to be back because I was looking forward to picking it up.

I notice this shows as unavailable now it was supposed to release yesterday. Is there any word when this will become available?

i wish i had some glitter dust...


I can't speculate on when we'll see the release of this scenario. My hope is within a few weeks. I have a draft of it that I'm reviewing, but the final turnover will likely not happen until the end of next week.

My hope is that I'll have this out before the April scenarios, but I also cannot guarantee it.


As noted in other threads, a very specific set of circumstances has to have transpired for someone to be 12th level now anyway, and I know a lot of people are waiting to complete Echoes of the Everwar for their last 11th level scenario, so there can't be that many people with 12th level PCs to begin with. We can wait.

Spoiler:
I hear the sequel's better anyway.

Read 2.2 now and your earlier posts here - understood and looks a lot of fun.

Just a question. But why is it so much more expensive than other scenarios?

(Not that it would stop me from buying it)

Never mind, didn't see Joshua's post about it until after I posted.

By raw wordcount, this adventure is close to 3 times as big as the normal scenario length. It's big! It's actually got more words in it than a printed module does.

Paizo Employee Chief Creative Officer, Publisher

Because it is CR 15.
