A Pathfinder Society Scenario designed for Levels 3–7.

When an unlucky historian in Absalom uncovers an infernal book from distant Tian Xia, he unwittingly unleashes a terrible evil into the city—the legions of devils imprisoned within its dusty pages. Only the book's holy counterpart can end the threat, and the Pathfinder Society has been called in to assist. Can the PCs locate and retrieve the key to ending the diabolical invasion of the City at the Center of the World, or will Absalom be drowned in the sea of destruction wrought by the Infernal Incantation?

Written by Thurston Hillman.

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.

So does this mean the witch is a siren or mermaid?

Does this scenario tie in to the metaplot for this season?

Grandfather, I see a little "sigil of the open road" symbol in the upper-left corner. If the GenCon Special is any indication, the adventures tied to the Ruby Phoenix tournament have the red bird symbol in the corner.

The Pic is only a place holder.

>>SMEK<<

That's the sound of me hitting my forehead with a ruler.


Just to clarify a bit...

From the manuscript I submitted, this adventure does not directly tie in with the season 3 metaplot. Obviously it does deal with Tian Xia (per the description), and I'm sure if Mark wanted to, he could jigger it in editing to fit in without too many issues. :)


I'm sure this is a great scenario, however it always bothers me when low level PCs are brough in to "save the world" or even to save a city as significant as Absalom. I'd prefer if low level characters save villages or small cities, cities like Absalom deserve the attention of high level PCs, the best.

First of all, it makes no sense because heroes would be available to save Absalom, whether they're part of the PFS or not.

Second, what if they fail? The city is overrun by demons? Absalom is the backdrop to many PFS scenarios, so unless you have other heroes save the city (which should have happenned in the first place) that outcome is impossible.

In "Silent Tide", we saved the city as well. However, as GM I overlooked it because the undead were so weak, they'd probably only beat up some senior citizens. So you're not saving the city as much as saving a few people imo.

Anyway, please don't take my feedback the wrong way, I'm sure this is a great scenario, I just wish the city we were saving was something smaller and more remote than Absalom.

Absalom is the headquarters of the Pathfinder Society and the centerpiece of the Pathfinder Society Organized Play campaign, and will thus play stage to Pathfinder Society scenarios for PCs of all levels. Don't interpret the scenario's blurb as them saving the city from an end of the world situation, however. Sure, there are consequences for failure, but nothing that higher level NPCs couldn't clean up if the PCs fail. Sales text needs to sound exciting, so forgive us if we play up the PCs' impact on the world when trying to get people hyped about playing this or other adventures at conventions and game days ;-)

Save the City they said... Destroy the incoming legion of Devils they said... I'd rather be fishing... ;)
