A wintry wilderness and dungeon adventure for 17th-level characters.

Entombed in the Ice

The witch queens of Irrisen must abdicate their thrones every 100 years when their mother, Baba Yaga, places a new daughter on the throne. But one queen was unwilling to relinquish her rule, and led a doomed rebellion against the Mother of Witches. Afterward, Baba Yaga entombed her wayward daughter in an icy necropolis known as the Veil of Frozen Tears, along with a powerful artifact called the Torc of Kostchtchie, hiding them both far from mortal eyes.

Now, almost 500 years later, the tomb has been found, and the race is on to plunder its treasures. Will the PCs follow Elvanna, the current queen of Irrisen, in her attempt to recover the Torc, or will they join forces with the demon lord Kostchtchie? What secrets does the Veil of Frozen Tears conceal? Can the PCs reclaim the lost artifact and keep it from those who also seek its power, or will they fall victim to the denizens of the tomb and end up as eternal guardians themselves?

The Witchwar Legacy is an adventure for 17th-level characters, written for the Pathfinder Roleplaying Game and compatible with the 3.5 edition of the world's oldest RPG. The adventure features an icy necropolis frozen in time, cursed dragons, twisted giants, and the fell magics and devious riddles of the Queen of Witches herself! It also includes a description of the frost giant fortress of Holvirgang, and a new monster, the extraplanar scions of the titans called the Abyss gigas. This adventure is set in the northern reaches of the wintry land of Irrisen in the Pathfinder campaign setting, but can be easily adapted for any game world.

Yeah, a high level module. What, no runelords then? Boo.

I like how you're setting these in the places laid out in the various Chronicles products, however. Hurrah for Kaer Maga.

I need something to clean the drool off my desk now...

I. CAN'T. WAIT. FOR. THIS!!!


OMG!!!!!!!

I've been begging for something like this for ages!!!

Paizo really does listen!!!

NOW I CAN DIE.

lol... nah, gotta contest to finish.

Yay witches!


YAY WITCHES!

17th level!?! Two of Baba Yaga's daughters?!? Sweet!

I'd ask when we'll learn the author's identity, who am I kidding? I'd buy it even if you said a thousand carbuncles were scratching it out randomly in the dirt ...

A thousand carbuncles are scratching it out randomly in the dirt.

Looks like a great "revisit the characters" adventure for when I finish Runelords.. well.. hopefully before this comes out (3/4 done!)

Yep, still gonna buy it.

And now we've learned why you've been rehabilitating misfit monsters ... apparently you needed some cheap labor. :)

Well, if you remember the old Dancing Hut adventure way back when...they are the same thing, he he.

I'll be curious to see how much adventure you can fit for 17th+ level characters in a 32 page module.

I think a fair amount. We fit a lot of adventure into this amount of space every month back when we were doing Dungeon, after all. We've got plenty of practice making high level games fit!

Tangential Question:
Could anyone tell we where the mock-up art work comes from, and what Valeros is fighting?

Cheliax

Pathfinder Adventure Path Charter Subscriber; Pathfinder Campaign Setting, Companion, Modules Subscriber

I *think* it's from Flight of the Red Raven.


Pathfinder Adventure Path Charter Subscriber; Pathfinder Modules, Tales Subscriber

Excellent. Now we need to make sure this sells well so we get more high-level modules. Which then opens the gates of possibility for an epic-level book.

Irrisen and Baba Yaga will be 2 excellent draws to sell this adventure. Good choice, Paizo!

I wonder if the witches will use the new base class as a baseline, or is "witches" just descriptive text?

There's a reason we haven't actually done much stuff with Irrisen yet. Because we don't yet have a locked-in witch!

AKA: they're witches, APG style.


Pathfinder Tales Subscriber

Thanks, Ravenmantle.

Jacobs, if this module is an appetizer for the Baba Yaga hungry hordes, then that'll be a nice bite to tide us over. :)


"Queen Elvanna" has a weird assonance with Igg...


Delicious delicious Irrisen. This module would go remarkably well with some of the content right here. :P


I love the synopsis! Now this sounds like what a high-level adventure should really be like. I can't wait for this to come out.

Nothing here but us carbuncles.

I think the first carbuncle* roadkill I ever saw up-close and personal was on a road trip to Ft Sill.

*First ed. carbuncle, as opposed to the lovable Pathfinder lizard.

Good recommendation, Liz. I'm looking forward to this module, too. I've been playing around with very similar ideas, myself.

In fact, that's part of what I've done with the fiction I had published in Wayfinder #1 and #2.

Edit: got the "Dancing Hut" adventure off off Evilbay some years ago... gotta integrate that once this comes out!

Greg A. Vaughan has written this one? Then everything will be fine. :)


It's got Irrisen (yay for mythic Finland/Russia), the Baba Yaga, and the Witch Queen (yay for a homage of Queen Jadis/the White Witch), and it'll be the first high-level standalone module Paizo has done, so of course I'll have to get it.

Dumb question while I'm here: where all has official info on Irrisen shown up?

Have you checked PathfinderWiki? The references section at the bottom will list all the sources that have been incorporated into the article.


So... um... whose the father?

Thanks. I keep forgetting that it exists!

Don't say that, the Wiki is delicious. In related news, hello everybody.


Well, this should be nicely timed. My group should be just about done with Rise of the Runelords when this becomes available.
I have to admit, I had no idea how to write up something for a group that high level. So this is good.

Qadira

What kind of chances are there that this might work as an extension of Kingmaker, for playing after the campaign has wrapped up? Or possibly as something to do in the middle to help on XP/equipment, alternately?


+1 Irrisen


Is there any other books that reference the Witchwar?
