The Harrowing – missing illustration (spoilers)


Pathfinder Modules


While I love all the artwork for this module, there is one piece I really wish had been included. That would be an illustration of what the Striding Fortress looks like from the outside. There is a brief description of it on page 26, and of course the maps themselves, but it’s such a quirky structure that it would be immensely helpful to have a picture of what it looks like as a whole.

So I’m wondering if there might be sketch laying around the Paizo offices that could be posted, or if anyone in the community has attempted to illustrate the fortress?

Knowing my players, they are going to want to thoroughly scout around the outside of the structure before going in. I’m sure they’ll want to look through the windows to see what’s inside – I’ve already decided the glass will be virtually unbreakable (good old glassteel, how I miss that spell). Having a picture to show them would help so much with their immersion.

I was a little annoyed that there was no picture of the striding fortress as well. A very powerful image that would have added a lot for my players. The best illustration that I found was actually in the Harrowing Cards that support the module. While by no means at the same level of artwork that the rest of the module shows, it was something none the less and satisfied my players as to what they were actually looking at.

Hope that helps.


Thanks for pointing that out. It's not quite what I picture the adventure's fortress looking like, but it gets the general concept across.
