She has since grown to adulthood and exhibited a rebellious spirit connected to the ruined school where the Pathfinders found her. The woman’s family has contacted the Society, hoping that its agents can escort her back to the haunted site and unravel the Drownyard’s relentless mysteries.

Written by Alex Greenshields.

One of my favorite scenarios so far.

*****

I've run this scenario a few times as a GM, and it's a favorite every time. I love that they allow options for all types of characters (combat heavy or those that prefer the diplomatic routes). The NPCs are memorable and the reveals from the Player Handouts are awesome. If you're not strong at role-playing as a GM, the primary NPCs can be a little challenging, so definitely give them some thought and a good read-over before you run it. It will make the game that much better for your group.

I haven't had a group walk away disappointed with this scenario yet, and that's saying a lot. It also brings in a monster element that doesn't seem to be common in PFS scenarios, but is in Adventure Paths. For players who only have a lot of Scenario experience, it touches on some new things AND teaches them how to handle a potentially lethal encounter. This information is amazing for players who will go on to play in full-length Adventure Paths, and for GMs who will be running those games.

I will run this any time someone in my area wants to play it. I'm really glad this was one of the first scenarios I ever ran as a GM. I have no regrets about my experiences with this one, and it's remained a strong favorite for many of my local players.


Best scenario in the front half of Season 7

****( )

I'd give this 4.5 stars if I could. It's got great roleplay, it does a good job introducing material from Occult Adventures (and a lot of other scenarios in Season 7 don't do that). It's a follow-up/flash forward to the earlier Black Waters, which oozed great flavor.

If you're looking at reviews considering running or playing this, just take the plunge, it's a hard one to miss even if your GM is just reading boxed text (and if you have an outstanding GM, it will be an outstanding game).


Interesting Scenerio

****( )

Played this high tier...

Roleplaying - The ball is in the GM's court to roleplay two unique NPCs very well, and at the same time, in order to make the scenario shine. This may be one of the only PFS scenarios I can think of that can be completed with full prestige and have zero combats. If you wield wicked social skills you'll be doing a lot of talking and rolling. :)

Rollplaying - On the other hand, if your party has a good face person, but you're playing a combat focused character you may need a caffeinated beverage or two. In our run through we only had one true combat encounter, and completed the scenario in just under 3 hours.

Environment - Good story line, and it ties into other scenarios and faction themes.


just a wonderful time

*****

I had run through Black Waters with a different character, so I was fairly familiar with the setting. We took this on low tier, with new characters, and just had a blast.

I was running a kitsune swashbuckler, for Liberty's Edge of all things, and my first ever attack with him was to disarm one of the antagonists en route to the Academy with a 19 on the die. And it got better from there. It even led to the line "I shouldn't be Sense Motive-ing my Faction Head!"

I think my character has fallen head over heels for J as well.
