Short and effective, just like a kobold

****( )

One of the most fun creatures to portray as a GM are kobolds and having players deal with them in roughly the timespan of an hour, is a great way to pass time. The more emphasis you put on the wacky side of kobolds, the more hilarious it can be.

It's pretty straightforward and easy to prepare. Do, however, realise that the kobold chieftain packs a more than serious punch on the low tier. His little friends can be painful too, but they will likely fall quickly.

It's fun and nothing really special, but it can be really enjoyable regardless.

Cute little guys, good intro

****( )

Basically for new players, just as the Fallen Fortress.

Fit in 1 hour, two combats with some cute little stuff. I suggest GM to do more role play about the kobolds.

Another scenario full of fun!

Pretty Fun Lvl 1.

****( )

Short and sweet. Nice way to end a day of character creation.


Kolbold Cheiftan with Mstwk Greataxe with x3 crit instakills the PCs' tank, and it all went downhill from there. Only one party member wasn't knocked out, and only survived with like 2 HP.

The Quest Begins!

****( )

Being the first release for the Pathfinder Society Quest series this scenario is responsible for setting a standard and I think it does that very well. Pathfinder Derris Jerval has disappeared while on a mission and Venture Captain Ambrus Valsin is sending the PCs to find him and to make sure he completes his mission (or complete it for him if need be). Unfortunately Derris was last seen heading into the sewers of Absalom so up front you know this mission is going to get messy.

The premise of this quest is a simple one and its execution is very straight forward. Utilizing the Ambush Sites Map Pack, the Bestiary (or the D20 PFSRD website) and some miniatures or tokens a GM can prep this quest in less than fifteen minutes. The entire quest can be played in less than an hour or with a little work there is enough story here to expand it into a traditional four hour game session.

No experience. No gold. No prestige. That is alright with me because these quests are not intended to replace PFS scenarios. They are designed to fit a different niche. Successfully the quest does give PCs access to one of two single-use boons which are good.

All in all I think this quest would make for a fun game session and it does a great job for setting the standard for writers looking to submit their own 2,000-word mini-adventures. Download it for free and roll some dice. Gift Certificates
