The young heroes of the town of Kassen are ready for their coming-of-age ceremony, an old tradition in which they retrieve a piece of the eternal flame burning in the tomb of the town's founder. Yet when they arrive there, they find only the corpses of their fellow townsfolk, dead bandits, and mysterious animated skeletons. The novice heroes must brave the traps and perils of the Crypt of the Everflame, discover the source of the corruption that has awakened an ancient evil, and defeat a menace that seeks vengeance against Kassen and its people.

Crypt of the Everflame is a dungeon adventure for 1st-level characters, written for the Pathfinder Roleplaying Game and compatible with the 3.5 edition of the world's oldest RPG. The adventure map uses the same layout as the 2009 edition of Paizo's Flip-Mat: Dungeon.

This adventure is set in the forested land of Nirmathas in the Pathfinder Chronicles campaign setting, but can easily be set in any game world. It can be used on its own or combined with its sequels, Masks of the Living God and City of Golden Death to create an even greater campaign arc.

ISBN 13: 978-1-60125-186-2

Excellent start for PFRPG adventures


This brand new adventure module (and the very first one!) for PFRPG features a classical dungeon romp, with some wilderness travel added for variety.

The module shines in a number of different areas, from the overall plot, simple yet well thought and full of possibilities for roleplay, to the great layout, which is awesomely easy to read and navigate.
The goodness doesn't stop to these two points, as the side bars explaining quirks and stat-blocs are great both for novices and veterans transitioning to the new ruleset.

The characters are in for some great encounters, will they be fights, puzzles and traps, or old-fashioned good roleplay.
As a 1st level adventure, it also has a neat way of explaining why the characters are there and how they come to form an adventuring group.

The tie-in to the Dungeon flip mat is a great idea to bring more atmosphere to the gaming table (even if a map pack would have served better, with separate tiles for different rooms).

Can't wait for the sequels!

Very Nice First Adventure


A very nicely put together first adventure using the new rules.

Great use of Sidebars to explain new rules, even to the point that these could be dropped and the module run fine for just 3.5 users who maybe didn't want to run under Pathfinder rules.

Loved the CR and XP given right next to the description of the rooms, something I hope they continue with.

Something I enjoyed, but perhaps others might not, is the inclusion of the Flip map line. The Dungeon flip map I received can be used for the entire adventure! Very nice bonus!!!

I can't wait to run this for our new adventurers (our kids) who will soon be running their very first campaing in ANY D&D world. I can't think of a better place to start than right here.



In one word:

Highlights include:
>Quick, fast, easy to read, master, and run this module from minute one.

>Layout deserves a trophy! Open it up and it falls immediately open to the stapled middle, revealing the dungeon map and great artwork. Functionally, this module layed-out with the user in mind, for example: bold stat block headings, concise Pathfinder RPG defense, offense, statistics sections and clear treasure/development/hazzard/XP/CR ratings/creature #s in bold, making this product very easy on the eyes of young and old gamers alike. The inside covers along with all art throughout is simply the very best and delivers the emotional feel of the world's oldest roleplaying game.

>This is the first Pathfinder RPG adventure compatible with v.3.5 and it absolutely thrives at this. My entire collection is instantly compatible.

>Story selection including the adventure summary and introduction are written concisely and effectively for both novice GMs and expert GMs to grab and use, yet it possesses all the quality of depth we've come to expect from PAIZO over the years. As the first ever Pathfinder RPG module, Bulmahn delivers, and even more powerfully (if you can imagine) than he did with Hollow's Last Hope.

In sum, this review is one of the best rpg modules ever designed--an immediate classic belonging with the hallowed ones we revere and respect. Yet, everything I see is fresh, new, exciting, and immediately satisfying.

Crypt of the Everflame, right down to the font and color selection of its title, is everything you would want from the world's oldest roleplaying game, and delivers a completely new, incredibly smart, sophisticated, and lavishly produced rpg module experience.

I'm looking for some modules to run for a school RPG club. Can anyone tell me how Crypt of the Everflame is for content? Is there anything here that I shouldn't really let 13-year-old GM's read? (P.S. I teach in a fairly conservative community. Not extremists...but conservative.)

It is about as violent as your typical crypt-crawling rpg... so very violent.

It has a traumatised person who has been trapped near terrors for a while and is a bit shellshocked.
I don't recall any torture or stuff like that.

I'm thinking of running this over the weekend for some friends, as a couple of people will be out of town and we won't be able to run our regular game. Roughly how many hours would it take to burn through this particular adventure?

Designer, RPG Superstar Judge

I haven't read through it in a while, but probably 4 or 5 sessions of 4–6 hours each.

Pathfinder Companion, Maps Subscriber; Pathfinder Roleplaying Game Superscriber

I ran it in 2 sessions, I think, but I don't remember how long each one was.

I ran this in one very long session. Probably about 16 hours.

Any chance Paizo will reprint Crypt of the Everflame? Always seems to be one of the top-selling modules.

I wouldn't say never.

It's sold out.

It does a good job introducing the Pathfinder game.

The entire series is on the list of the 10 best-selling Modules we've done.

Grabbed a Non-Mint edition that was just made available during the Great Golem Sale... Fantastic deals! Picked up 21 other products to go with it.

I downloaded the chronicle sheet to use this as an intro to PFS for my nephew and there seems to be some info missing. Is it supposed to only be 1 page?

here's another vote for a reprint. "crypt of the everflame" is available on ebay and amazon, but waaay too expensive.

I would sell my left nut (not like I'm using it for anything) for a reprint of the book and map.

Where is the sanctioned content document for pathfinder society? I only see the chronicle sheet.

Pathfinder Starfinder Society Subscriber

I would settle for a rebadging of the cover with the newer Pathfinder Module logo - to make it look like it belongs with the newer modules. No need to reprint; just update the pdf.
