Pathfinder Adventure: Malevolence

The house has stood abandoned on its lonely hilltop, brooding quietly over the ruins of a once-thriving town for decades. No one has lived within its walls since the night a terrific storm flooded the coastal town below—and since tragedy struck down the noble family that once dwelled within. Now, the mansion has attracted the attention of a curious group of adventurers. What is the truth behind the tragic past that empowers the evil that grips the mansion today, and what might happen to the world of Golarion if the sinister influences that grow within these haunted walls are allowed to build beyond the breaking point?

Malevolence is a horror-themed adventure for 3rd-level characters written by James Jacobs featuring sinister new monsters, mysterious magical items and spells to discover, and a fully detailed haunted house for players to explore, exorcise, and endure. With an immersive method of researching the history and truths of the mansion’s macabre secrets through visions, dreams, and good old-fashioned ghost-hunting and investigation, Malevolence is ready to test the limits of any heroic party’s bravery!

Done and done!


I finally put my finger on what's really cool about the Mwangi Expanse picture (the first one of these). It DOESN'T show the people there as a mob watching hungrily in an arena over a fight potentially to the death for the right to be king, the way -- you know the cringeworthy scenes I am thinking of in Black Panther.
