A dungeon-based adventure for 1st-level characters.

The ruined siege castles outside Absalom have long beckoned adventurers looking to make a name for themselves. Now an earthquake has cracked open one of these fabled ruins, and its lost mysteries and fantastic treasures lie exposed for the first time in centuries. But the tower's empty halls once more echo with living footfalls, and a new master has claimed the Fallen Fortress as his own. Can the PCs find a way to get inside its shattered walls? What ancient dangers and fresh threats will they encounter inside its crumbling chambers? And will the PCs be able to defeat the current Master of the Fallen Fortress?

Master of the Fallen Fortress is a dungeon-based adventure for 1st-level chararacters, written for the Pathfinder Roleplaying Game and compatible with the 3.5 edition of the world's oldest RPG. It also serves as an introduction to Pathfinder Society Organized Play (Paizo's constantly evolving, world-wide megacampaign). The adventure involves exploring an ancient, ruined tower and rescuing the captured Pathfinder held within.

This adventure is set outside the great city of Absalom in the Pathfinder Chronicles campaign setting, but can be easily adapted for any game world. It also contains a preview of the six new iconic characters from the Pathfinder Roleplaying Game Advanced Player’s Guide, available August 2010.

Written by Rob McCreary.

Hm... is that the iconic oracle there?

Taldor

I see nothing!


Paizo Charter Superscriber; Pathfinder Deluxe Comics Subscriber

It was just here! I swear!


Liar!

Taldor

He stole it! Get him!


Paizo Charter Superscriber; Pathfinder Deluxe Comics Subscriber

I found it with Gary's new search - obviously better than intended! :)


Okay now you stole James Jacob's post!


Paizo Charter Superscriber; Pathfinder Deluxe Comics Subscriber

I found the picture in my cache, but I have the feeling they don't want us to see it yet...

So I'll pretend I don't know anything!

Paizo Employee Chief Technical Officer

Right... so, this is the discussion thread for our Pathfinder Module for Free RPG Day... but we have a little display issue right now. If you want to see it, you'll need to go here.

Cheliax

AWESOME cover. Is it me, or it's very pulp-like?


Wow, the cover is really cool. I'm glad Jack and I got Zaister to finally give it back..


We'll chalk Jacobs up as a loss..

Andoran

The old school gamer in me likes the use of 'module' instead of adventure!

Very First Edition, AD&D feel!

Paizo Employee Developer

I like that it will "serve as an introduction to the Pathfinder Society Organized Play" though I'm curious how that will work.

Will this be available at PaizoCon for those of us who won't have access to a FLGS while stuck in the vortex of awesomeness that will be the Coast Bellevue?

I'm sure we can arrange something.

appears so


Do we have to pay $5 for the paper version and $5 for the PDF for a total of $10? Not sure how that'd work...

EDIT: Nevermind. *facepalms*

Previously, the PDFs for Paizo's Free RPG Day stuff were free.

Print editions will be available exclusively on paizo.com beginning June 21, 2010. A FREE PDF will also be available on that date.

The $5 is the cost for ordering a hard copy from Paizo.


Duh, that's right. I did get the bonus bestiary PDF last year. *facepalm*

Hm, is this another free full colour release?

Please do. I usually support my FLGS by running a game for them on Free RPG Day in exchange for them setting aside a copy of whatever product Paizo contributes. This time I'll be at PaizoCon and unable to do that, but I'd love to get a hardcopy of McCreary's latest while I'm there.

Yep. Like the Bonus Bestiary, Revenge of the Kobold King, and Hollow's Last Hope before it!

I love this.

You are guys are the bee's knees


Oracle and Cavalier! They look like a beautiful yet familiar replacement for Seoni and Valeros on the cover of a module.

I'll be running this at the con, and can hopefully swing free copies of the module to give to those playing, at least!

I was about to say.." Ohh!!! Let me jump into that, I have played with you, but Never got to be in a game you GMd" then realized you meant PaizoCon... DOH!

Awesome.

And seeing the oracle and cavalier on this cover makes me very very happy.

Cool!

It will function as a Tier 1 scenario, meaning it's only for beginning 1st level PCs and has no level range. The back inside cover is a chronicle sheet and anyone who plays through it can use that chronicle sheet to get their character in Pathfinder Society started. This allows us to effectively run Pathfinder Society events at every Free RPG Day store and gives us an introductory adventure for Pathfinder Society that can be downloaded for free and played anywhere.

It won't have faction missions or prestige award, though it will have the typical +1 XP and purchasable items off the chronicle sheet. Once the adventure is successfully completed, there's an option to join the Society as both a character and a player and if you do so, that's when you make all of the appropriate choices for your official character.

I'd just like to remark that that, sir, is an admirable piece of marketing strategy. Well done.

So, when can we preorder this thing? Or do we have to wait until free-RPG day.

I run ROTR at my FLGS right now. So how can we arrange to get this for the free RPG day...etc.

Typically, I think your FLGS has to register with the Free RPG Day people first. Then, they get a shipment of whatever products the publishers provided for it...including Paizo's adventure.

Last year I coordinated with my FLGS to run a demo using the Bonus Bestiary on Free-RPG Day, and they got me a copy of the book early so I had a chance to look it over and prepare. Sadly, mine was the only demo people were running and no one wanted to stick around to play it. They just got their free swag and left. But my suggestion would be to talk to your FLGS as soon as possible, see if they can start posting notices about the game that'll be run that day and also see if they'll get you a copy to prep with as soon as they receive their shipment.

Yes... send your retailer to http://freerpgday.com for more info (and to register).

Hurrah! Free introductory PFS module. :)

Thanks, Josh.
