The deserts of Osirion—land of pharaohs and ancient tombs—hide not just untold wonders, but also unspeakable dangers. When the vast sand dunes part to reveal the ancient pyramid of the legendary Pharaoh of Sphinxes, glory seekers from across many nations race toward it, each fighting to be the first to claim its wonders. But the storied pharaoh doesn't rest quietly within this monument, and his tomb was designed to slaughter any who would dare trespass.

A band of bold adventurers are the first to arrive, and stand poised to claim what’s risen from the sands—but they're unaware of the doom that lurks inside. With daring on their side and strange, rarely seen powers at their disposal, the heroes may be the only force capable of containing the force of evil within and defeating its curse!

"Risen from the Sands" is a dungeon-based adventure for four 3rd-level characters, written for the Pathfinder Roleplaying Game and compatible with the 3.5 edition of the world's oldest RPG. It also provides four immediately playable previews of exciting new classes debuting in the upcoming Pathfinder RPG Advanced Class Guide, as well as a thematic supplement to the new Mummy’s Mask Adventure Path.

Not good.

*( )( )( )( )

The idea of a Pyramid dungeon crawler is a cool idea. The idea of crawling through the tombs of an ancient pharaoh is such an interesting concept that my group and I jumped at it. We were told this is was a tier 3-4 which would have been fine for our group, and a great way to introduce a friend to a module.

By the end of the encounter, the entire group was tired and aggravated. With hard hitting foes that no amount of early AC could possibly protect, ability damage (doing this at level 3? Really?) and a construct enemy with 8 DR, this was an incredibly unfair module. I have to give credit to our GM who realized the BS of Risen from the Sands and helped mitigate some of the issues.

If this were reclassified as a possible 4-5 Module with better PreGens, I could see this as a viable game to run, but for now, I say to avoid it.

All sands

****( )

Combat-central, but enjoyable, digging into a pyramid, fight with guardians and get the treasure!

Have some decent fight, but I think the first fight is a little too deadly for new players, I have heard many TPKs within 1 hour. And the BBEG fight is a little bit save or suck, my heart bumped so fast.

Strongly suggest play with four level 4 characters, except powergamers. If you prefer social or investigation, avoid this.

Great free module

****( )

It's free, and the content is good enough. I love the Osirian and Pyramid theme, never had any chance to try this kind of setting, so this module give some decent foundation to start an adventure, there isn't many chance to RP in this module though, you need to give a bit of improvement if your player love to RP.

The encounter is quite good, though one of my player complain that the early encounter is too easy, and the boss encounter is too hard. That aside, it's quite challenging, and the dungeon design is simple but filled with interesting traps, puzzle, and of course magical items.

I give 4 out of 5, because I'd love to have more chance of RP in this module esecially in the city itself, and more balanced encounter with great scaling difficulty toward the end would be appreciated.

In the end, if you're looking for an easy-to-run module, this great free module will served your purpose.

A classic adventure

****( )

One of my all time favorite adventures. I love running this one. 4 stars because it needs more story elements, otherwise its a straight forward crawl and enormous fun at that.

Classic Dungeon Crawl


This is everything a dungeon crawl should be. It really tests your ability as a player and the strength of your build. This module should be challenging even for good players and that is why it is one of my favorites.
