A Pathfinder Society Scenario designed for levels 5–9.

On the edge of Varisia's Mierani Forest stand the ruins of an ancient guardtower that once served as the native elves' first line of defense against the threat of invasion from the bordering Thassilonian realm of Envy. Just as the elves fled Golarion to avoid the destruction of Earthfall, so too did they leave behind the Tower of the Ironwood Watch, which the Pathfinder Society now hopes to explore—a task that could prove more dangerous than anyone anticipates.

Written by Sam Polak.

This scenario is designed for play in Pathfinder Society Organized Play, but can easily be adapted for use with any world. This scenario is compliant with the Open Game License (OGL) and is suitable for use with the Pathfinder Roleplaying Game.

Played this.

It was not overly exiting. The combats can be a nice tactical challenge, altough they do have an 'off button', due to written tactics. (obscuring mist against archers, for example)
The setting itself is a bit bland, it could have used the 'forbidden lore' aspect of the [redacted] a lot better for more flavor.
All in all, not a bad dungeon romp.


Seriously. Who could not love this? This entire scenario is one surprise after another. I run for a group that can be a bit jaded. (calling out things like "ah medium sized rectangular room prepare for traps by the door and the second small fight halfway through". This scenario had them all rocking back on there heels. Only some quick thinking kept them from losing to there own hubris. Plus it is outstandingly written and fun to run.

Interesting Encounters


I've both run and played this scenario. Both time I had a group of regular players. One group was more RPcentric the other is a more build focused group that also has some good RP skills. In both cases the game went really well.

First of all I love the history to it. For those Golarion junkies your going to get some decent story out of this scenario. At the end there is also some fun Easter Eggs hinting at season 5.

The encounters were fun. Some unusal monsters are here that you might not encounter too often. Also the NPCs at the end are well fleshed out with fun dialog quirks.

Overall a lot of fun with some great setting and RP moments backed up by interesting encounters.

Tower of Ironwood Watch - Blah


Once again, [redacted] is used to provide a challenge in the final fight, and despite it succeeding at that, everytime [redacted] is used, it ends up just slowing everything to a crawl and being boring as all get out.

Please stop having authors use [redacted]!

Thank you

That should be enough time to prepare it for Chimaeracon, when I run it on the 6th.
