A Pathfinder Roleplaying Game adventure for 4-6 characters of level 1.

Ancient Ruins. Lost Civilisations. An unexplored island across the sea hiding a treasure of legendary power.

Abandoned. Forgotten. Ripe for the taking for anyone who knows how to get there.

For anyone with a map …

Four Dollar Dungeons are standalone adventures designed to be logical, entertaining, challenging, balanced and easily integrated into any campaign world.

Each adventure has enough material to last two to three playing sessions and enough experience to raise four characters of the appropriate level up by one extra level. Treasure is commensurate with the encounter challenges faced. Scaling information is included for adventuring parties of five or six.

This adventure starts in Port Salth, continues on a sea voyage aboard The Astrid, and finishes where most of the action takes place on the tropical island of Snakero.

Added to my cart as well! It sounds awesome!

Wow, what a review. And bought.

So what other credits does the author have before 4DD?


Thanks for the trust, everyone. It is only VERY rarely that I get such a module - for such a low price. I'm not aware of more credits, but Richard has created the first module since Retribution that truly blew me away in the first level range and as a wilderness sandbox, it is a thoroughly enjoyable, superb offering. Hope you'll enjoy it as much as I did!

Endzeitgeist's review made me buy this!

Gee, Endzeitgeist, I've never come across a more undecided review. C'mon! Pick a side! Do you like it or don't you?(/sarcasm)

This looks like it will plug all too easily into my Skull and Shackles campaign, plus

Spoiler:
I love the vaguely related foreshadowing potential regarding Geryon's involvement in the Skull and Shackles AP
It looks like this just ended up in my cart.

I actually had tears in my eyes when I read that review. Thank you Thilo - it meant a lot. As for other work - none. I've been playing for over 30 years but Four Dollar Dungeons is my one and only sortie into the module writing world. I am currently working on module number 3. I hope I can keep up the standard!

All the best

Wow. I may have to pick this thing up just for the maps and tables, especially since I plan to run Savage Tide again in the future and things like tidal charts could be very very useful. You guys seem to have thought of everything.

Well, End has convinced me. I'm in.

Ends review made me put this in my shopping cart, I buy it tomorrow.


I'm quite sure this won't disappoint you, Baldwin. I've run this since and it was GLORIOUS.

Thanks, I bought it a few minutes ago. The maps are impressive!

I run a two games on Paizo as PBP, and my long running COT game in nearly in the last book after 15 months of PBP gaming, and I was looking for a shorter module that I can run next in the Fall. Sort of a break from the the long running campaign. Looks like I may have found it.

Glad you like it so far!

If I may, some advice:

Put on some jungle ambient tracks when running this, preferably with a second track of gentle waves close to shore, get in the mood and read the tactics and terrain - and your PCs will LOVE this one - though they may die. Also: If you have poisons and diseases or want to give starvation and thirst rules a go - this is the place to hit PCs with these nasties. ;)

If we wanted to import this to a Golarion game, where might it best fit?

Thanks for the insight.


In Golarion - well anywhere in the South, really. You only need an ocean and an area where (sub-)tropical clime is possible. Whether for Serpent Skull or Skull & Shackles (and the whole areas covered) this would make a nice sidetrek. I can easily be run in conjunction with Varisia, though - minor cosmetic reskins are all it takes.

Thanks Thilo :-)

Incidentally, I might finally have a cover on its way for my next module, Panataxia, which has been sitting here waiting for publication for 3 months!

Hope you like it as much.

Richard


This first module is terrific, I look forward to your next project. I'm looking forward to actually running this one.

Dark Archive

All feedback gratefully received :-)

Richard


Sounds like Richard has done it again with Panataxia. Some very high praise over on Endzeitgeist.com in the review of his latest module.

Excuse the little plug, but this adventure received the joint top #1 spot in Endzeitgeist's top products of 2013 list along with my other adventure "Panataxia".

The complete list is published in this free e-zine:

This month The Horn of Geryon passed its 200 sales mark, which by general 3pp standards classifies it as a "hit".

2 1/2 years on people are still enjoying this "treasure island" type tale that begins with an innkeeper asking the PCs to find his daughter's missing rabbit.

(which was inspired, incidentally, by my daughter and her stuffed toy rabbit - called "rabbit" - which at the age of 23 she still goes nowhere without)

Anyone who loves Dr Who might also have noticed the strong connection between this adventure and the Dr's first encounter with the Daleks back in 1963 (Snakero -> Skaro, etc). I'm a big fan of the classic series and my adventures are full of references to the old black and white stories.

So in conclusion I would like to take this opportunity to say thank you very much to the 200+ people that have bought this PDF, as well as the other adventures that I have written.

And as a general note - purchasers vote with their wallets. Your support of the 3pp scene encourages, inspires and guides the material that we produce. Buy the things you like, and you'll make sure that more of what you like gets written.

All the best

Richard

Congratulations Richard. I'm glad to hear that so many people have picked this up. All of the 4 Dollar Dungeons sound like excellent adventures and I will check them out when I am in a position to run a game again.

Four more years have passed and Horn of Geryon has passed the 300 sales mark.

(and my daughter, who's 26 going on 27, still doesn't go anywhere without her rabbit!)

I stopped writing these adventures some time ago but obviously I still keep track of the sales. They've more or less trickled to a close now, except every now and then I get a surprise such as when someone bought all 10 a couple of months back.

They're still pretty good value, let's face it, even if you just use them to cannibalise ideas.

As PF1 comes to an end and PF2 rises from the ashes, I'm pleased that my most popular adventure has crossed the 300 sales mark, before sales of the line disappear completely.

So many thanks to the 300 purchasers and to everyone else who bought Four Dollar Dungeons.

All the best

Richard

Richard: I bought a half dozen of the Four Dollar Adventures a few years ago, and they are some of the best one off adventures I've ever read. They're creative, with a ton of detail, and have that specific flair of managing to present situations that the PCs need to deal with or solve without necessarily laying out a railroad they're expected to follow. You've done excellent work, and while I know that indie publishers get very little feedback or response, I just wanted to let you know that your work was extraordinarily appreciated.

Thank you very much - I'm pleased you enjoyed them, and I very much appreciate the feedback.

I'd love you to share any favourite moments, if you have any. You're right that indie publishers are always feedback-starved, so even if you can't think of any thank you very much just for putting up your message.

All the best

Richard
