Pathfinder Tales: The Shroud of Four Silences

Wednesday, November 04, 2020

A small settlement of mostly wooden structures takes up most of a small clearing along a rocky coastline. Mountains and woodlands occupy the surrounding areas. A tall tower rises from the woods nearby. Other prominent features are an opulent temple of blue and white, the town’s tallest structure, and a long log flume jutting out over the sea..

The town of Otari, as seen from the Inner Sea, by Will O’Brien

Hey, Pathfinder fans! It’s Mark Moreland, your friendly neighborhood Director of Brand Strategy, with a bit of exciting news about web fiction over the next few months. Today, to celebrate the release of the second-edition Pathfinder Beginner Box next week, we’re launching the first chapter of a serialized novella by fan-favorite author, Liane Merciel (Nightglass, Nightblade, Hellknight).

The Shroud of Four Silences takes place in the town of Otari, pictured here, which serves as the setting for not only the Beginner Box, but also the Troubles in Otari adventure and the Abomination Vaults Adventure Path. Like new players taking their first steps into the game and world of Pathfinder with the Beginner Box and our other Otari content, the heroes of this tale are new to adventuring, but quickly find themselves embroiled in a plot that could threaten the entire town.

This return to long-form Pathfinder fiction also gave us another opportunity to try something new, so after this week, you won’t see the remaining chapters of The Shroud of Four Silences here on the Paizo Blog. Instead, you can get each week’s chapter emailed directly to you by ensuring you have opted in to receive “Products, Offers, News, and Events” emails in your account privacy settings. We’ll still have Otari-related blogs coming out on Wednesdays for the duration of The Shroud of Four Silences’s release, but they’ll be encounters, No-Prep Characters, and other content you can use at your table. If they happen to also be relevant to the current chapter of Eleukas, Wendlyn, and their companions’ story, I’m sure that will be entirely accidental.

So without further ado, I present to you: The Shroud of Four Silences.

Chapter 1

WORK DETAIL

Come on,” Eleukas coaxed. “Just one more load and you’re done.”

“’One more load,’ he says,” Wendlyn muttered, flexing her scratched and sawdust-smeared shoulders. “’One more.’ My arms are about to fall off, and he wants me to cheer up because there’s ‘just one more load.’”

“You were the one who opted for a work detail over a night in the cells.” Otari’s lumber companies gave away their split, hollowed, and beetle-weakened discards for firewood, provided people used their own carts to haul the loads away. Wood splitting was one of Captain Longsaddle’s favorite punishment details, since the Otari Garrison was in perpetual need of firewood, and whatever they didn’t use could be given to townspeople too ill or infirm to chop their own. The need never ended, which meant the work never ended.

“Well, obviously A night in the cells is a night in the cells. Rats, damp, terrible food. Whereas with this, I’m out in the fresh air and sunshine, plus you end up doing all the work.” Wendlyn dragged another hollow log over to Eleukas’s stump and dropped it.

“You could always stop stealing things,” Eleukas pointed out, heaving the log into position and hefting his hatchet. A maul would have been more efficient, but efficiency wasn’t the point of punishment details. “What’d you get this time? A handful of coins from some drunk sailor? Was it really worth it?”

It was the closest he’d ever come to openly chastising his friend for her unending larceny, and Eleukas held his breath for a beat, afraid he’d pushed their friendship too far. To fill the silence, he began hacking at the log, splitting it neatly with a few sharp blows.

But Wendlyn just shrugged and went back to the reject heap for another log. “When else do I get to see my oldest friend? Seems like these work details are our only chance to catch up.”

That stung. Eleukas contented himself with splintering the new log as he tried to think of a response. It was true that since he’d joined the Otari Guard, he hadn’t had much time to sit around in taverns with his friends, even though—or maybe because—he was only a raw recruit and felt so far behind in his training. There was always some new technique to learn, or another bit of wisdom to pry from some grizzled veteran, and he was so full of questions about his new life that sometimes he forgot to keep up with the old one.

It really was only on these work details, when Eleukas contrived to get himself assigned to guard duty after Wendlyn’s latest arrest, that he saw her anymore. And it was true that he volunteered to do most of the work, partly because he felt so guilty about letting their friendship lapse, even though she was the one who was supposed to be improving her character through labor.

“Maybe I could—” he began, but Wendlyn cut him off with a sudden, intent look at the tree line beyond the lumber yard.

“Did you hear that?” She rose up on her toes, leaning toward the forest like a hound casting for scent.

Eleukas mopped his brow, pushing sweat-soaked black curls aside. He hadn’t heard anything over the thunk and thud of splitting wood, but her half-elven ears had always been better than his.

“No,” he started to say, cautiously, when a scream split the sap-scented air.

It was a howl of raw rage, and although Eleukas couldn’t have said whether it was made by person or beast, he knew it was a battle cry.

“Come on.” Wendlyn was already running toward the trees. “Bring your axe.”

Eleukas didn’t waste any more time with questions. Otari was a close-knit town, where you helped your neighbors if they needed it, and the forest could be dangerous. Kobolds, wild animals, worse. There were even rumors of saboteurs targeting the log flume that was Otari’s economic lifeblood, and though Eleukas didn’t like to credit such tales, that cry had come from the direction of the flume.

Gripping the sweaty hatchet, he ran after her.

Branches whipped Eleukas’s face and undergrowth snarled at his feet as he charged through the wood, trying to keep Wendlyn in view. The half-elf darted through the trees as easily as a shuttle through thread, and if it hadn’t been for the bright blaze of her red ponytail waving through the greenery, he’d have lost her. Wendlyn never remembered to wait for anyone slower than she was.

Ahead, the clattering bulk of Giant’s Wheel loomed over the treetops, creaking and grinding and throwing a rhythmic rain up to the sky as it harnessed the Osprey River’s power to carry logs down to the sea. Its immense clacking rush drowned out anything as small as a human voice, but Eleukas didn’t need to listen for screams anymore. He could see the person who’d made them.

No, not person. Corpse.

Even as he crashed through the forest’s edge and heaved for breath in the clearing beyond, Eleukas registered the unnatural angle of the neck, the blood that drenched the clothes, the terrible gaping wounds in throat and torso. He’d never actually seen a person murdered before, but he knew immediately that it was too late to save this man. And he knew it would be scorched onto his memory forever: a thing he had trained for, a thing he had expected, and a thing for which he could never have been prepared.

The fight wasn’t over, even if its first victim was dead. Two patchy-furred rats, each the size of a large dog, were menacing Wendlyn with loud hisses and bared fangs. The bright afternoon sun didn’t cow them, and neither did the darting thrusts of her short sword. The rodents worked with uncanny coordination, one feinting at Wendlyn to draw her attention while the other lunged in to bite.

Eleukas had never seen Wendlyn fight before, and was surprised by how deftly she handled her blade. He’d always assumed she just carried it as an affectation, but it was clear she’d had some real training. She was holding her own against the rats. One was bleeding from its jaw, and the other bore a deep cut along its ribs, although they’d torn their share of ugly scratches across Wendlyn in return.

“I’m here!” Eleukas shouted, hoping to distract them. One of the rats turned on him, snarling. He swung at it but missed. The rat snapped at him, sharp teeth grazing the hair on his forearm. Its spittle flecked him like warm rain.

Adjusting his footing, Eleukas tried again. This time he read the animal’s momentum and chopped low in the other direction, misjudging the aim a little—the hatchet was designed for splitting firewood, and was considerably shorter and smaller than the battle axe he normally used—but catching the rat hard in the forequarters all the same.

Bones crunched, and the rat fell squealing. Yet the other one, to Eleukas’s astonishment, didn’t run. Its greasy brown fur puffed up higher, its spine arched stiffer, and its hisses grew louder. Despite the posturing, it seemed oddly reluctant to commit, hopping back and forth just out of reach instead of coming at either of them.

A second later, Eleukas realized why. It wasn’t alone. Something stirred in the underbrush, creeping toward them as the rat spat and snarled in distraction.

“You take the rodent,” Eleukas said, standing back-to-back with Wendlyn so he could focus on the new threat.

It was hard to pick out from the leaves. He glimpsed a gaunt, clawed black hand, its skin hard and glossy as polished leather, its nails curved into sharp talons. The body was a shapeless mass of damp fur or filthy rags, blending into the brush so that Eleukas couldn’t guess its size. And the face—

When he saw its face, he froze. There was no face. From the stump of its neck rose a vortex of shadow, sucking inward to an infinitude of nothing.

The emptiness at the core of that non-face dragged Eleukas’s consciousness into its chilling depths. He felt, in some place beyond rational thought, that if he let it pull him in, he would be torn apart and devoured so completely that nothing of his mind or soul or awareness could remain.

Terror closed cold around his heart. Fear swallowed every shred of reason in his mind. And then, just as Eleukas braced himself to try, somehow, to pull away from the deadly grip of the whirlpooling dark, a plume of soft black powder blew up from the depths of that devouring emptiness into his face.

Blindness seized him. He couldn’t see, couldn’t breathe. A thick warm wall choked the air away from his gasping mouth. Eleukas tried to scream, but that heavy, blanketing warmth buried the cry in his throat.

He fell, suffocating, into oblivion

Huh, I think the rats may have been wererats but what the heck was the pile of fur and flesh with a void for a face? Some kind of grossly fleshwarped creation or maybe a unique undead? Either way, I'm guessing Eleukas is pretty much gone and Wendlyn might not be far behind him. :(

What will the procedure be if you miss the first email, or if someone decides 6 months from now that they want all of the installments of this story?

Once the first week has passed, is there any hope for anyone being able to find the missing chapters?

As it stands, it sounds like anyone who gets the Beginner Box as a holiday gift will never be able to read this story.

The emails are automated. You get the first chapter whenever you sign up, even months from now. Then, seven days later, you get the next chapter until the end of the novella. No one will start the story partway in. We will be promoting it for months, so new buyers can enjoy it.

Thanks for the quick response!

As usual, Paizo has thought this through and has things well in hand.

Not weekly like they did before. We have ordered a few pieces to support the story, but they'll likely show up on the blog instead of in the emailed fiction though.

That was my first thought. I actually more or less assumed it would hit one of those and checked them immediately, and a few different times both before and after seeing that other people were apparently receiving it now (and I checked them again just now, too). Nothing there.

I'm not actually impatient or anything, I'd be fine waiting a week for this, but if there's some systemic error with some of us not getting it, Paizo should definitely be made aware of it.

Email subject line: "The Shroud of Four Silences - Chapter 1" went out the morning of November 5 and to a few more on November 6. The system checks every day for new opt-ins, so check your account privacy settings and spam folders. :)


Not to be a pain, but I verified the email about two days ago and have not gotten the first chapter, or any emails besides the one to verify the changes. I've double checked both my spam folder and my settings page.
I'm fine if I have to wait a bit, but I am somewhat concerned since it seems like that's not supposed to be happening.

Happy you have verified and sorry you have not received Chapter 1. I can confirm that the system continues to check for new subscribers and send Chapter 1 every day.

Yep, me too. Still nothing. I'll probably leave it a bit and see what happens, then contact Customer Support eventually if nothing does.

I’ll echo the same problem. Even unticked the box, saved, then reticked the box and saved. Even with verification. Hopefully it sorts itself out, but maybe worthwhile linking the chapters on the website somewhere (which I suppose defeats the whole purpose of getting people to subscribe to the newsletter, but eh).

I did enjoy the first part of this story though.


Same problem here. I changed my settings on the 4th. Back then, I had some trouble with the website's front page, so the link sent didn't work. I cleared my cache and history on my web browser, which made the site show up properly for me again, after which I clicked the link to confirm again and it seemed to indicate that the changes were successful, but I still have not received any other e-mails from Paizo. I checked my spam and promotion boxes. Hopefully this will be sorted at some point. I look forward to the rest of this story. :)


Pathfinder Adventure, Adventure Path Subscriber

This is the entire first chapter, so you haven't missed anything yet.

That said, hopefully this is all straightened out when they come back to work this week.


Great to see new Pathfinder fiction. Now if we can get a PF2 videogame that would be fantastic!

Is anyone receiving marketing emails, but not the fiction?


I've been receiving all emails for which I signed up (including the fiction), thanks.

Had to make sure that the correct boxes were selected though, as their placement before (instead of in-line with) the titles of the options to which they are linked makes it seem like they're part of the previous option... (Does this make sense?)

Hope things come right for everyone else.

Carry on,

Greetings, all!

Paizo uses the Dotdigital marketing platform to send promotional emails. For the Otari Fiction, it checks each day at roughly 4 a.m. Pacific time to see who has been added to the email lists and then sends them Chapter 1. 7 days after that, those same people will receive chapter 2, etc.

You should receive a verification email from Paizo when you join or rejoin a mailing list (if you're signing up through your Paizo account). You must click that verification link in the email before the system will actually add you to the mailing list. If you check your privacy settings, you should see a checkbox marked for the "Products, Offers, News, and Events" option.

You can also sign up through the Paizo Newsletters option we use for social media, but this is not linked to your Paizo account. Even if you've signed up for both, you'll only receive a single email from Paizo.

If you have signed up through Paizo and verified the checkboxes are checked off, please send me your email address via private message and I'll send over to the tech team to see if they can track down any issues. I can't add you to the program manually, however; you'll need to sign up through Newsletters if you want to start getting emails immediately.

-Jim


I still have only received marketing emails and not The Shroud of Four Silences. I've already received two emails and nothing from the fiction! :(


Pathfinder Maps, Pathfinder Accessories, Pawns Subscriber; Pathfinder Roleplaying Game Superscriber; Starfinder Superscriber

I wasn’t getting them, so I turned off all the notifications, turned them all on, I think I’d turned on first and third but not the Society play one. After turning on all three and then confirming the chapter arrived the next morning.

Hope that helps.

Thanks for this, the newsletter link worked for me after changing my account settings didn't.

Had to go through a pair of confirmation emails, though I'm not sure why.

I'm puzzled by the approach in general, though. I don't get the week delay between each chapter for folks who sign up later rather than a catch-up bundle or a quick series of emails.

Or doing it through email at all, rather than a regular update on the website (either on the blog or a dedicated fiction section). Or just selling books again.

Its an irritating method of getting access to authors I genuinely like. Glad to see their work, but I'm irritated at Paizo for making me jump through wacky hoops to get it.

Hey Voss,

Thanks for the feedback. Ultimately, this is an experiment in different media delivery methods. While the blog is one tool, we also want to make sure we're effectively using all of our messaging channels to reach people, both for fiction and for other content.

One upside for us is that everyone running into issues with confirming their settings has illuminated some tech issues that we were unaware of, so if this only serves to diagnose a larger issue that's been going on for a while, that's already a win.

But ultimately, we wanted to see if putting non-marketing content into emails moved the needle on sign-ups or click-throughs on our emails. The weeklong delay between chapters is a side-effect of how we have to set up the mailing backend logic, but we're looking into a way to handle it differently, if not for this novella, then at least for potential future ones.

And just so it's clear, we do not plan on leaving this content in email form forever. Folks who can't or don't want to get it in weekly chunks or who have technical issues will have an opportunity to purchase the entire story down the road. We don't currently have a timeline on when that will be, however.

Here's something really weird -- all 3 links to points within this thread from the Forums page are broken -- they go to the home page instead of here, and only the blog link to here actually works. And then this page (and as far as I can tell, only this page) appears in some new style (and the Comment posting thing is even in a new style). Not sure what to make of this.

Edit #1: Once I made it here, it does function, even though it looks weird (I prefer the classic style).

Edit #2: If I go to my profile and thence to my posts, the link to my own post from within there is broken too (goes to the home page).

Yeah, that's the first email (so that you can have all parts in the same format/place).

You'll get the second one in exactly a week, and the following ones all in the same timeline, until the end of the novella.

Quitting and restarting Firefox and clearing cache before restoring session fixed the link from my posts (after which this thread also went back to the classic style), but the Shroud of Four Silences seems to have disappeared entirely from the main Forums page after this.
