A Pathfinder Society Scenario designed for levels 5–9.

The Lands of the Linnorm Kings derive its name from its leaders, each of who can rule after slaying one of the massive, draconic linnorms that inhabit the region. Centuries ago, when a warrior set out to slay a dragon of her own and carve out a kingdom, she returned not with a linnorm's head but that of the local linnorm king. The lone witness insisted she had used ice magic and Irriseni witchcraft to kill the king, an accusation that led to the warrior's execution. It's said that even today, the so-called Jarlsblood Witch prowls the land and snatches up lone travelers.

Not all believe these tales, most notably the warrior's descendants. One serves as a member of Taldor's Ulfen Guard and has contacted the Society to make a deal: exonerate his defamed ancestor in exchange for intelligence that could shape Taldor's future and avert a disaster. It's up to the PCs to embark into the frozen Lands of the Linnorm Kings to solve an ancient murder mystery, though there's far more at stake than honor.

Contents in The Jarlsblood Witch Saga also contribute directly to the ongoing storyline of the Sovereign Court faction. This is one of several scenarios that also set the stage for and directly tie into the upcoming War for the Crown Adventure Path.

Written by Nathan King.

Great story dragged down by diplomacy mechanic

***( )( )

The story, lore and combat encounters were well done. Everyone at my table, who were very experienced players, felt the scenario was dragged down by the tedious gather info/diplomacy minigame. Overly long repetitive skill check aren't why many are coming to the table. If this portion of the game is run as written you will have to hand wave much of the exciting role-play and combat if you want to finish on time. Seriously examine how your players can get the info they need to get without boredom ensuing.

The story itself is great. The combats are great. When I run this again I will not take as much time with the gathering of info. The NPCs may be more..talkative.


Very cool scenario!

****( )

Ran this with a party of 4 in High-Tier. Lots of good role play opportunities, a wonderful amount of story and lore that the players get to find out, and what an amazing set of encounters. Would definitely recommend playing/running this scenario.
