A Pathfinder Society Scenario designed for levels 1–5.

Beneath the Grand Lodge of Absalom lie the vaults, a series of storerooms and libraries that contain much of the Society’s findings from the past centuries. Cataloguing the sundry relics and texts takes time, and finds requiring closer study find their way to an extensive vault called the Overflow Archives. Soon after a pair of initiates sneaks into the archive and steals a few items on a dare, the complex inexplicably springs a leak. It is up to the PCs to investigate this strange phenomenon and put a stop to it before thousands of priceless documents are ruined forever.

Content in “The Overflow Archives” also contributes directly to the ongoing storyline of the Dark Archive faction.

Written by Scott Sharplin.

Very enjoyable!

*****

Loved this scenario. Played it in the low tier and it wasn't extremely overwhelming.

The worst thing about this scenario is the riddle... It just doesn't make any sense... But you just gotta go with it.


An Overflow of fun

*****

I have to give this a 5 because it was just fun to run. Had a small party, like 4 and they just rocked the non combat parts of the scenario. The only problem they had was not having the correct knowlege skill to id the fey. But they still rolled with it.
I can say this though, a mesmerist can and will wreck the final combat and make the bbg useless. it happened and took all my fun away.

Anyway it was well written and the combats were not overpowering, but the tooth faries and friend made that combat hairy for the first couple of rounds, love charm person!
Loved it and want to run it again soon.


A Fun and Interesting Romp

*****

A top notch scenario and definitely one of my favorite low level games. I am always a fan of unique creatures in scenarios and there are several in here. The NPCs are delightful and if done well can really sell the weirdness of the entire situation. This entire scenario feels exactly like the kind of thing low level pathfinders would be tasked to do and when they are not out adventuring.


Playful, odd, and gruesome by turns, like any good fairy tale

*****

This was a truly unique scenario that left my character feeling that he'd not just been in an adventure, but part of a story. The author did a spectacular job of capturing that 'kitty-corner to sanity' that is fey logic and bringing us into their world. My GM had a blast role-playing the different characters and a fabulous time was had by all!

Luckily we had not one but TWO party members who could speak Sylvan - I can imagine that the scenario would be much less fun without.

Is this the season 6 Library of the Lion / The Disappeared style scenario?

As an archivist, I am very much looking forward to this. :)

It's not quite the same style, but there are some thematic similarities. Scott's adventure has both opportunities for skillful characters to feel good as well as moments where someone with 18 Strength and a two-handed weapon will chuckle.

Liberty's Edge

This sounds perfect for my 18 strength Order of the Tome Cavalier.

Giggity, I am sitting on needles here. We scheduled a table with this scenario for saturday. I really hope it releases today.

FYI: The description of A1 refers to a particular terrain found on page 426 of the Core book, but it's actually on page 427. Probably not a big deal for those that own a hard copy of the CRB, but I had to scroll up and down a bit in the PDF to find it. Anyhow, so far I'm loving reading it, and look forward to roleplaying the various folks in the opening scene.


Spoiler:
Someone please tell me why the cartographer made the map 31 inches wide?

DEAR CARTOGRAPHER: WHY DO YOU HATE FLIP-MATS? ;-)


map spoiler:
Don't blame Sean; he was working off my maps. This was my first PFS assignment, and I must've got over-exuberant with the final design. I'll show more restraint next time!

But the layout of the Understacks is nearly symmetrical, so you should be able to draw half the map on a flip-mat, and then rotate when the time is right. I hope that helps!

More map talk:
What's more, the 31st square is just the upper wingtip of the butterfly. I suspect it won't be much of an issue if you clip the end off area B2, which doesn't have a combat encounter.

I am very happy that this is the scenario I was scheduled to run 3 times at PaizoCon. All three tables (and the two times I've participated in this scenario locally) have been great fun!

Was naming the villain kitsune Verbal an intentional The Usual Suspects Easter egg or an accident?

I didn´t translate the handout, only read it out loud in german several times on purpose, since the riddle seems very easy to solve to me even for people not familiar with english.

Since the scroll is supposed to be in a different language not everyone can read...

Gladior, did you play the scenario in English, or in another language? If it was the latter, then I suspect your GM made an ingenious adaptive choice.
