Looking for investigation and crime solving scenarios

Pathfinder Society Roleplaying Guild

Liberty's Edge *

Hey all,
Been a long time since I was active in the PFS, and I'm looking to tap this as a potential resource. Any recommendation you may have are welcome.
I'm starting a fantasy crime drama campaign using the Iron Kingdoms RPG and setting. The PC's will be detectives in a bad part of town in a port city in Ord. The campaign will be called Law & Ord. ;)
The mood will be a little like Ripper Street, but with magic.
I'm looking for recommendations on some pfs scenarios that I can adapt and build a campaign from. I recall that Goblin Guild was a good low level one, but need a dozen or so adventures.
Any suggestions?

9-02 would be a good one

Dark Archive *****

#2-13: Murder on the Throaty Mermaid
#8-19: Treacherous Waves
#9-02: A Case of Missing Persons
Module: The Midnight Mirror
Module: Murder's Mark
Module: Carrion Hill

I'm currently playing through Carrion Hill via Play-By-Post if you want to check it out. I think the setting is perfect for what you're looking for.

Thanks for the suggestions. I played CH as bonus content for Carrion Crown, and it's and it might make a neat end to the story arc.

Grand Lodge **** Venture-Captain, Online aka Hmm

1 person marked this as a favorite.

#5-22: Scars of the Last Crusade
Gallows of Madness -- Foul Breed
#51 & 52 -- The City of Strangers Arc (Shadows Gambit and Two Fold Demise)

Also consider adventures like 7-10 Consortium Compact and 7-21 Sun Orchid Scheme, where you are doing not just investigations, but missions that involve planning a heist or disrupting a smuggling ring.

9-04 The Unseen Inclusion has some good clue hunting! Scarab Sages really want to get into every nook and cranny! LOL Awesome session!

Silver Crusade ***

There are plenty of investigation type scenarios these days. Skill heavy scenarios are something of a theme the last two years or so. But not all are city based, so they might not fit your campaign.

But if you want to send your PCs to outlying towns, I'll recommend The Feast of Ravenmoor (a module) and 7-12 The Twisted Circle.

8-01 Portent's Peril is a lot of fun, and kinda fits your theme, too, just in a roundabout way. That one's in a city, but what you're doing isn't a straightforward crime investigation.
