The fabled ruined city of Dokeran, deep inside the heart of the Mwangi Expanse, has been found and it's your job as a Pathfinder to explore it and discover how it fell. After fighting through fiends, enslaved warriors, and the damned spirits of Dokeran's dead, you find that the ruined city has a dark secret—one you might not survive.

An RPG Resource Review


The backstory for the DM tells a tale of a nasty artefact with the power to destroy... but all the Pathfinder Society knows is that strange music has been heard coming from some ruins discovered deep in the jungles of the Mwangi Expanse and the last people to go there never came back. Perhaps the party can investigate...?

The adventure opens in the city of Kibwe, through which most folk entering the Expanse pass. A local Pathfinder gives the party their assignment, recommending that they seek out a witch-doctor called Nangi who can guide them to the location of these ruins, the remains of a settlement named Dokeran. But first they have to traverse dangerous swamps and find that witch-doctor.

Once they reach Dokeran, their hunt through the ruins leads eventually to an underground complex, where there's more evil than you can shake a stick at! Yet the end combat is somewhat disappointing, which is a shame given the compelling backstory that will probably never come out. Better maps, particularly for the early part, could improve an adventure which doesn't really live up to its underlying concept.


Played this at the high tier.

Scenario is a simple straight forward hack and slash with no role play opportunity. Past the first, the encounters are quite challenging even for an experienced party. The final encounter was very difficult and three out of the four of us went down very easily. Only the heavily optimized Hunter and companion saved the day.

The scenario suffers from being old and not updated as well as being unable to cope with the newer classes.

Would not recommend


Ran this for my local group yesterday and I have to say that it was more than disappointing. The story had a decent plot hook, but the execution was incredibly dull.

We ran at the 10-11 subtier, and nothing was really a challenge. I used the PFRPG stats for the monsters that warranted it, but all the enemies with class levels were just mowed down. There were map and spacing issues as well, with one encounter calling out for three huge-sized creatures who would not even fit in the room they were placed.

The final act was also not a real challenge. Sadly, the whole party beat the BBEG on initiative, and he was down before he could cast a single spell. For the level he was he had too few hit points.

I know this is a season 0 adventure, but I think this one suffers a great deal due to the 3.5 to PF conversion.

It's ok, I guess, maybe


So, I recently ran this scenario for players. Here are some issues with the module:


1) At high tier, the encounter with the beetles. . . either they don't fit in the allocated room (5 foot squares) or the diagram of where they are standing is incorrect because they clearly don't take up a 4x4 grid spot. Why are there basic map errors in scenarios?

2) Speaking of the beetle encounter, huge creatures stand 15' tall. The basement floor is only 10' below the main level. So. . . these creatures' "heads" are actually sticking up from the basement into the main level and the PCs can clearly see them. One wonders how they even got there.

3) Ok, beetles again. They can't climb or otherwise challenge a party on the main level. Why wouldn't a party just rain death from above and be done with the encounter in 5 minutes? Is it intended to be a freebie?

4) Yet another "single bad guy" with virtually no supporting mooks who gets to do almost nothing cool before being murdered mercilessly due to action economy. And I only ran it with 3 + a pregen. Sigh.

5) It would have been fun if the boss had tactics to actually *use* the Song of Extinction during the encounter. So you know, it felt unique and fun. This would have been an excellent encounter to have triggered effects from the environment, say falling rock and such.

6) Listed damage for corrupting touch of the ghosts is wrong. It can't possibly be 1d6. If that's intentional, then the enemies provide no challenge at all and it's a bad encounter.

7) I do have to give props to the first encounter. It's the only thing saving the review. Using updated stats for the howler creature from bestiary 2(?), it is a fun encounter. The stats in the mod provide little challenge, and this would be a weak encounter using those stats. Entangle + spike stones is good.

8) Why provide stats for the Song of Extinction if it is literally never used?



This adventure was poorly assembled. The maps are a mess, making no sense. The party is told to travel northwest, yet in the first encounter they are traveling east. The layout of the first encounter on the map is nonsensical, and for some reason, they've got north pointing to the left, which just confuses things. In the second encounter, the map legend states one square is 10' when a look at the map shows medium creatures taking up only one they must have decided that the "temple" wasn't nearly big enough and tried to switch the scale at the last minute without adjusting the actual map. They say the temple treasure is hidden in the north wall...right where the door is according to the map. I could go on... There is so much sloppiness here that signficant editing will have to be done to make any of it make sense.

This means we have successfully gotten through with season 0! The next PFS material we see will be the beginning of season 1.

This is so exciting!
