A Pathfinder Society Scenario designed for 7th to 11th level characters (Tiers: 7-8 and 10-11).

In the rural Menador Mountains of southern Nidal, the PCs find themselves in a fog-enshrouded mining town facing a terrible fate. Silver Tarn, on the banks of which the settlement of Stom's Claim stands, has grown a mind of its own. Reaching out with strange abominations of the deep to siphon the souls of the stubborn populace, the lake hopes to release a powerful fiend bound centuries earlier by Arodenite clerics. If the PCs can't stop the Silver Tarn Entity, Stom's Claim and much of western Avistan may soon fall to a fate beyond comprehension.

Written by Crystal Frasier

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.

Forgotten gem of PFS


I really, really love this adventure. The plot is cohesive, the fights are interesting and the feel of the scenario is really powerful. I didn't realize that Pathfinder could do survival horror well.

Amazing scenario


Amazing atmosphere. Classic feel. Great opportunity to roleplay. Memorable encounters. I cannot recommend this scenario enough.

You begin right away knowing why your PCs are headed to the small village of Stom's Claim as you ride in at sunset.

Then, you get a glimpse of something amiss in the town.

Now, you're dealing with what's going on in the town and there's plenty to be had for the characters that enjoy creative roleplay. You feel like you're part of a scene in Walking Dead or some other movie where a small town has a big problem.

Finish this all off with some more interesting roleplay and unique mechanics in a final fight, which is a doozy, and you have yourself an absolutely classic scenario.

With the right engaged, creative and prepared GM, you'll be engaged in what is happening from start to finish.

A really solid, diverse adventure.


I’m not sure why this one doesn't have more ratings, but I highly recommend it. I am writing this from the perspective of someone who has GMed it twice and played it once. Not only does this scenario have a great, terrifying atmosphere, but it has a very nice mix of different combat situations. It has some fun role-playing opportunities too and gives the GM a fun mix of characters to play. There is also a situational problem that the players have to think through, which I found very refreshing. The background story is fairly well communicated to the players, unlike some other scenarios. (Note to GMs: Do not forget to hand out the player handout at the appropriate time. It adds a lot of flavor, but is easy to forget.)

This scenario may be from an early season, but it is far from being a pushover. I had some very experienced players looking seriously scared during the final battle. This scenario is definitely in my "top ten".

Epic horror so real, that you feel your in a Lovecraftian movie!


Hey Gang,

I had the pleasure of playing Silver Tarn last night. I was not able to play my own character due to the level of the mod, (had to play pre gen) but that didn't even matter once the adventure began.

The flavor text was rich and dewy for getting players in the right mood off the bat. The only thing missing from the gaming store I was playing at, was a raging storm outside, a dimly lit room and creaking floorboards, but you do not need all that to already get that feeling when your characters are in the story.

I will not give too many things away, but I will say this... You MUST have a major HEALER in the party. Take this warning to heart!

Out of all the PFS mods I have played, Silver Tarn is on the top of the list of the best! I want to make another character, just so I can play it again!

Wow! That was one of the most epic and horrifying adventures I have ever played


Crystal, you did it right. This adventure really filled us with dread. We loved the tension, the role playing encounters, and the combat. I found it truly epic and very challenging. I only got to play it because my good friends Shawn and Katie opted to play pregens so we could make the table legal. Thanks Shawn and Katie and thanks Crystal for writing and AWESOME adventure. Out of all the scenario authors Crystal never fails to stay my favorite, I can't wait to see what she comes up with next.
