Hungry Are The Dead - GameMastery Module Questions

Pathfinder Modules

Has anyone played the Hungry Are The Dead module? One of the rewards of the Safe Room (Part 2, Upper Vaults, Area 7a) lists a Staff of Healing with 12 charges as a treasure. Got a few questions about this and haven't been able to find anything about it.

1) Considering that Staves in Pathfinder are supposed to be rechargeable
and capped at 10 charges, is this correct?

2) If the item is indeed the Staff of Healing, its treasure value is far greater than any other item in the module. Is this intentional or an error?

1 person marked this as a favorite.

Note that Hungry are the Dead was written for D&D 3.5, not Pathfinder, as it was published prior to the PFRPG release. There are variations in the mechanics due to this. In this case, the staff is not rechargeable. With only 12 charges, that puts the value at 6,660 gp.

Here's the 3.5 version from the SRD:

This white ash staff, with inlaid silver runes, allows use of the following spells:

Lesser restoration (1 charge)
Cure serious wounds (1 charge)
Remove blindness/deafness (2 charges)
Remove disease (3 charges)
Moderate conjuration; CL 8th; Craft Staff, cure serious wounds, lesser restoration, remove blindness/deafness, remove disease; Price 27,750 gp.

Ah. That makes a lot more sense. Thanks Erian_7.

Alternately, you could have it be the regular Pathfinder rechargeable version, but with its number of current charges modified:

The PF equivalent of having 12/50 charges remaining, would be to have 2/10 charges remaining.

Of course, that would indeed mean the staff would grant a far higher treasure value than it was intended to grant. If I ran this, I'd probably switch the staff for something else worth around 6,500 gp, or alternately remove enough other treasure to compensate.

Greetings, fellow travellers.

Baelin, you also might wanna check further down in the sub-section Pathfinder Modules.


There is a much weaker staff presented in the beginner box that's like the staff of healing that may work as a substitute.
