Written by Dennis Baker.

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.

Funny, I thought Dennis should kick off by writing an adventure about Ogres... ;-)

I bet this'll stink. ;)

Hey thanks guys. I've been so busy finishing this up I didn't notice people had posted here!

Kaje -> About this much

Bork bork!

Very glad to be running this at gencon, I have yet to read it but I think this author will excede my expectations.

I'm going to be running this three times at Gen Con. So I'm hoping it will be a blast. I'll see about writing a review after running it and getting a good impression of it.


Yeah, I've got this one twice at Gencon as well (Saturday at 1:00 p.m. and again at 7:00 p.m.).

Looking forward to it!

Lots of pressure. I forgot to check this thread for updates. Dotted now.

Hope you guys aren't disappointed.


I bought this one last night and think it will be a very fun run, but..

I was a little disappointed that there were no true dragons in it. The adventure's name suggests a group of dragons--not kobolds. Yes, I know that kobolds are related to dragons, but it's still a bit misleading. That said, I'll change the illusionary blue dragon into either a real black dragon (very young), or a real blue dragon (wyrmling). Hopefully, that doesn't kill the party as the kobold chieftain is no slouch with evocation magic.

Still, all-in-all, a very exciting and well-written adventure. Thanks Dennis! :)

Paizo really wants to keep actual dragons rare (which I love) so a real dragon was pretty much a no-go. If you did add a dragon in there be really careful, the chief is no slouch, When I ran this last night I had to dial him back a bit for (relatively weak) subtier 3-4 group and even at 6-7 he was nasty until his guards got bumped off.

Really like the new(?) trend of providing a name link to the forum identity for each scenario author.

The author of this one has already posted right here in this comment thread (a few times) and is a local BAPS player: Dennis da Ogre

Big props to you, Ogre!

I'm not sure but my contributor tag and name were more due to my contributions to Ultimate Combat. They might give PFS authors the options to get contributor tags too, I'm not sure.

Thanks for the prop, hope you enjoy the mod.

Qadira RPG Superstar 2010 Top 16, Contributor

Thanks for the review Kyshkumen, glad you enjoyed it. It was a blast to run it on 'opening' night.

Qadira RPG Superstar 2010 Top 16, Contributor

Thanks for the reviews guys.

Qadira RPG Superstar 2010 Top 16, Contributor

Hey Wow, thanks for the positive reviews guys, glad that things worked out well for you!


Ok, I'm running this tomorrow and I have a question about the first encounter:

GMs only:
On page 5 it says "The only door to the station is closed." The module goes on to explain how difficult/noisy it is to use this door, even calling it the "front door." The mod specifies that the thugs assume the PCs are gamblers if they come through the front door (the noisy one?) but are warned if they come through the back door and the dog barks. The map itself shows one door, with the dog nearby. It doesn't make sense for the only door to the place to be so difficult to get in/out of, since there are people there. Am I missing something?

Paizo Employee Developer

There's a door directly into the offices, off the wooden porch, as well as the door into the jail portion of the building.

Qadira RPG Superstar 2010 Top 16, Contributor

Hmm, that is actually a bit of a goof on my part. I was using the small image of the map from the web store when I wrote this and I only saw the one door going into the jail area and I thought the back area was an office not a porch. Thus the 'only one door in'. Hope that plus Marks comments help.

I can't wait to play this. Now I just need to inveigle one of my local GMs into running it for me...

Fiona is talking about running it in one of the next few sessions. I'm looking forward to it so I can finally see it from the other side of the table.

If you had a 5-7th level character it would help :D

Finally got to play this, and one of the few I hadn't been spoiled on by running it myself first. Another Ogre scenario makes it way onto my list of favorites. Played up with a crew of 4-5s and were suitably challenged by the plethora of traps. Felt very koboldy indeed!

Question about the tactics of one of the NPC's



Yiddlepode casts invisibility from her scroll

before the PCs enter and hides behind the curtain or the scant scene decorations during combat, maintaining the illusion of the dragon on her father’s behalf.

Can another arcane spellcaster (presumably with the spell on that characters class list) take over concentration? and is this supported by RAW?

Also this seems to be in contradiction with Kibizax whose tactics say the illusion goes away after 2 rounds.


Pathfinder Battles Case Subscriber

Yiddlepode has silent image on her spells known and could presumably overlay her fathers illusion with a duplicate of her own.
