so much fun to run


this is one of my favourite PFS scenarios to run. I love the religious aspect of it, the NPCs are great, and it's so easy to keep the players off-kilter. secret rolls, delayed onset effects, and nefarious unintentional heresies that come back to haunt the party later. it's a work of absolute beauty!

great (with a good gm)


to start off, don't run this cold. there are plenty of other things that are easy to run cold, and this scenario deserves better. the players will hate it, you will be confused why people are doing things, its just not going to go well.

that being said, properly prepared by a gm that knows how to give the npcs life here, it is prolly the best investigative sandbox scenario in pfs.

i can see some players who like dungeon crawls being disappointed with this scenario, but i feel that the boss fight should have enough payoff for them (what a tough fight!)

Excellent setting, story and scenario.


This scenario was probably the one I've been wanting to play the most for about half a year now. Due to circumstances, I wasn't able to and so I waited and waited. Luckily my friends bailed me out and made sure I could play it before my planes-loving summoner became too high level. Friends are the best, aren't they?

As for the scenario, I loved it. Considering I love role-play-heavy scenarios, that is no real surprise. There was role-play, investigating and combat, albeit that the emphasis is on the first two. There's just a brilliant atmosphere. First you have a suspicion that things are not what they seem to be. It's not before you know something is wrong and slowly you unravel an evil plot that may not be terribly original, but is still incredibly effective at telling a compelling story. Every little detail builds on it and makes it more and more creepy, until you finally are confronted by evil in its true form.

That said, I have to say that this scenario is not for everyone. Murderhobo's need not apply. Sadly I had one in the party and he complained about it a lot. It ruined the mood a bit, at least for me. It was still enjoyable, but it didn't live up to its full potential. That's not the scenario's fault though and I highly recommend it. Be sure to bring a full party, as the fights can be nasty without that, and tell the fight-only players to stay away. If you do, I'm sure you'll have a grand time.

Fantastic PFS module


Fantastic PFS module with plenty of details to keep everyone entertained. Good combats and plot discovery. Highly recommended.

Abandoned Temple? Mysterious Demiplane? I'm in.


Perspective: played once, GM'd once

This scenario is just all-around awesome. The mission and setting 'fits' the Pathfinder Society in a way that a lot of other scenarios don't: you're actually being sent as archaeologists, and that holds throughout the growing sense of unease, the various hazards, the almost limitless RP opportunities, and the challenging combats -- all the way through to the very end.

Easily one of the best out there.
