Invaders from Space!
When the iron mines that made Dustpawn so prosperous played out not long after the Goblinblood Wars of Isger ended, the city shifted its focus from mining to goat herding with quite a bit of success. Things have, as a result, been quiet and calm in Dustpawn for the past several years, but that quiet is shattered the night a strange falling star roars across the sky above town to crash somewhere in the hills several miles to the south. When several locals eager to find the fallen star and strip it of its ore go missing, it becomes apparent that whatever has fallen from the sky is much more than a mere meteorite. There are those in town who claim the falling star was in fact a ship, and now a strange malady is creeping through the townsfolk. Can the PCs discover the truth behind the falling star before doom comes to Dustpawn?

Written by Mike Welham, the 2012 winner of Paizo Publishing’s annual RPG Superstar contest—in which unpublished authors compete before a panel of celebrity game designers and legions of their peers for the chance to write a Pathfinder ModuleDoom Comes to Dustpawn presents the players with a classic trope of 1950s sci-fi recast in the fantasy setting of the world of Golarion. Can the PCs save the town of Dustpawn from a menace from the darkest depths of space?

Doom Comes to Dustpawn is an adventure of investigation and cosmic horror for 9th-level characters, written for the Pathfinder Roleplaying Game and compatible with the 3.5 edition of the world’s oldest RPG. This volume also contains a gazetteer of the town of Dustpawn and a brand-new monster template for a strange form of feral mutation, both of which can easily be integrated into any campaign setting.

Written by Mike Welham, RPG Superstar 2012 winner.

B-Movie Goodness

****( )

Ran this for PFS. Meant for four but ended up with a full seven players at the table which made a big difference.

First off, I loved this from a GM standpoint because it has a nice mix of Lovecraftian meets 50's B-Movie science fiction and it works wonderfully. Just right.

Taking into account that we had three players more than suggested I think that the encounters are just not tough enough once you get into the story. For the level of characters this is designed for it is still too easy to almost walk it in my opinion.

Good module. Fun times. A good option.

Taste of the Fusion Fantasy


Investigation + Horror + SF + Magitech?
(the GN driv... demon engine is too awesome to leave)

Well rounded

****( )

I ran DCtD last night and the party had a good time, with a few surprises. A fair opportunity for RP, as well as critter-smashing left all players satisfied, though many of the encounters were disabled within a round or two by my veteran players (including the final fight) which was anticlimactic for me but perhaps a relief for them. Overall, a good mod with a surprisingly plausible sci-fi element to it. Worth a look.

Excellent Adventure!


Read my full review at my blog.

Doom Comes to Dustpawn is an excellent adventure, and an excellent start to Mike Welham’s rpg-writing career. It blends pulp science fictions with Pathfinder-style fantasy to create an exciting premise and an exciting adventure. Apart from my quibble with the hook for the PCs, there is very little wrong with the adventure, and it shows just how successful the RPG Superstar contest can be at finding new talent.
