The deserts of Osirion—land of pharaohs and ancient tombs—hide not just untold wonders, but also unspeakable dangers. When the vast sand dunes part to reveal the ancient pyramid of the legendary Pharaoh of Sphinxes, glory seekers from across many nations race toward it, each fighting to be the first to claim its wonders. But the storied pharaoh doesn't rest quietly within this monument, and his tomb was designed to slaughter any who would dare trespass.

A band of bold adventurers are the first to arrive, and stand poised to claim what’s risen from the sands—but they're unaware of the doom that lurks inside. With daring on their side and strange, rarely seen powers at their disposal, the heroes may be the only force capable of containing the force of evil within and defeating its curse!

"Risen from the Sands" is a dungeon-based adventure for four 3rd-level characters, written for the Pathfinder Roleplaying Game and compatible with the 3.5 edition of the world's oldest RPG. It also provides four immediately playable previews of exciting new classes debuting in the upcoming Pathfinder RPG Advanced Class Guide, as well as a thematic supplement to the new Mummy’s Mask Adventure Path.

Written by Rob McCreary.
Cover Art by Tyler Walpole.

This special 16-page Pathfinder Module will initially be made available for Free RPG Day on June 21, 2014. Print editions will be available for sale on paizo.com beginning July 2014; the PDF edition will be available for free at that time.

Very Enjoyable

*****

I was run through this module last night and I thought it was great.
I have played through a dozen or so PFS Scenarios at this point and this one was one of my favorites.
That being said, it is very combat focused.
So if you are more into the social side of things, this one isn't going to scratch that itch.
The fights were very enjoyable though.


Lethal and Uninspired

*( )( )( )( )

NO SPOILERS

This Pathfinder module for characters level 2-4 was released on Free RPG day in 2014 and is still free to download from the Paizo website. Even at that price point, Risen From the Sands is too dear as it'll likely cost everyone at the table their characters. What you can read about in the other reviews and forum discussions on the Paizo site is perfectly true in my experience: this module is very poorly balanced and is a TPK-generator in waiting. I ran this for four PCs and two of them died, with the other two fleeing the adventure locale after just two encounters in order to survive. To some degree this might be forgivable if the module contained an interesting story, fantastic encounter design, or a significant addition to world-lore, but it really doesn't. It's the sort of uninspired dungeon crawl that any competent GM could put together themselves in an afternoon. I would call it forgettable, but it may be very memorable indeed to the players who don't make it past the first few rooms! Really the only thing I can recommend about Risen From the Sands is the artwork--the cover, for example, is a fantastic image. Overall, this is a module that fails from both a gameplay and a story perspective and should be avoided.

A special note for PFS players: If you want to try this as a sort of "hard mode" scenario, I'd suggest you bring (fairly optimized) fourth-level PCs. The Level 3 pre-gens included in the module (which are the only Iconics that can be played) probably don't have the sheer firepower necessary to make it through without a lot of luck.

SPOILERS

The backstory to Risen From the Sands is bog standard for fantasy gaming: an ancient pharaoh ("The Pharaoh of Sphinxes") in Osirion (Golarion's equivalent to ancient Egypt) was interred after death in a remote pyramid and arose as a mummy. The pyramid has been lost for millennia until the shifting sands uncovered it, and now there's a race by archaeologists and tomb robbers to get to the pyramid and discover its secrets and riches. The PCs receive a paragraph of intro text about the pyramid's discovery and are then assumed to set out for it, with the only choice they need to make whether to travel on foot (a 7 day journey) or take camels (cutting the time to 4 1/2 days). The troubles with the module starts right here, as the PCs are told about all these groups "vying to be the first to plunder the tomb's treasures" which makes it sound like speed is of the essence, but in fact it makes no difference and PCs spending money for camels have wasted their dough (at least in terms of getting there; cursed or diseased PCs on the way home may find the purchases worthwhile!). Of equal unimportance is the purchase of any equipment to make desert travel more survivable, as the module simply handwaves the entire journey to the pyramid.

The interior of the pyramid consists of eighteen rooms, and in very old-school dungeon design, almost every room contains a trap or monsters--but what happens in one room never spills over to what happens in the other rooms. The traps are the sort of thing one would expect in an ancient pyramid--pit traps, collapsing ceilings, a swinging axe, etc. The monsters are mostly different types of undead (zombies, skeletons, and mummies feature prominently) with a couple of animated statues, a swarm, and elementals spicing things up a little. There's a heavy concentration of creatures that can inflict diseases of various types and a nasty cursed item (very difficult to detect at the PCs' level), which means that even if the PCs make it out of the pyramid alive, there's a fair chance they'll die before making it back to civilization. It all makes you feel sorry for the suckers who go in there! There's only one puzzle, which is unfortunate--more puzzles and fewer monsters would still fit the feel of exploring an ancient lost pyramid while easing the difficulty somewhat.

I don't think there's value in going through the module encounter-by-encounter. The PCs I ran this for spotted the first couple of traps (thanks to the Iconic Investigator's Trap Spotting feature) but were wrecked by the first monster: a CR 5 construct with the Trample ability, a hardness of 8, and 52 hit points placed in the middle of a narrow 750' long hallway! Through some really clever quick-thinking by one of the players, they barely escaped, only to run into the next encounter: a CR 4 mimic. Few PCs of Level 2-4 are going to make the Reflex save to keep their weapons from getting trapped by the mimic's adhesive, and its ability to automatically grapple and constrict an opponent on a successful hit makes it a pretty dangerous creature. Coming in such short succession to the construct, that was all she wrote and the survivors were lucky to make it out. If they had pushed forward, I don't think they would have made it far.

It's a very disappointing module, and I'm surprised to see it was written by someone as good as Rob McCreary. I understand from the forums that he didn't know what pre-gens would be placed in the module when he was writing it, which is fair enough. Still, even apart from that, it's just not a very interesting or entertaining module compared to other ones that Paizo has released on Free RPG Day over the years. With so many high-quality adventures out there now, Risen From the Sands deserves to be buried for a few millennia like the pyramid it contains.


Long, dangerous and exciting

****( )

Risen from the Sands is one of those adventures more experienced players warn relative newcomers about. After having played this module, I can see why. I should mention that I played it with a rather balanced 6-man party, including a character who could give ‘bane’ to a bunch of weapons. Needless to say, undead-bane helped a lot.

The basic idea of exploring an ancient tomb or pyramid isn’t exactly new in Pathfinder. Indeed, there are many scenarios and the occasional adventure path completely dedicated to such a thing. Yet few go into this much detail when it comes to a pyramid. Compared to other similar dungeons, this one is not only larger, but also more detailed and devious. Furthermore every room is a challenge in itself, be it combat or logical thinking.

The author did an amazing job making the whole module a challenge. There were some interesting twists and the combats are at the times pretty rough. The undead-bane really was useful on the rapid shot gunslinger though, and in general our tactics were rather solid. Had the Decemvirate seen this batch of recruits, they’d have been impressed. Well, except for the fact only one of us spoke Ancient Osiriani.

I rather liked this module, but it indeed can be very lethal. The first combat in particular requires you to be prepared or you’ll certainly suffer and maybe TPK. The final fight is scary, though it helped our saves were spot on. It did take us a few rounds, but we took the evil guy down as well as his pet with suffering any casualties. Our wands of CLW however did take quite a hit and without some helpful intervention, one of us would have succumbed to an evil item.

I highly recommend this module even though it has your character balance between life and death on more than one occasion. The only issue I have is that it runs really long. I guess that's what happens when there are many rooms with each and every single one of them offering a nice challenge. There are no filler rooms which is often the case in a scenario, so you’ll be on your toes the entire time. Just be sure to come prepared and maybe wait a little until you’ve got some experience. This is not friendly for new players and is very challenging, but it's a blast regardless.


Not good.

*( )( )( )( )

The idea of a Pyramid dungeon crawler is a cool idea. The idea of crawling through the tombs of an ancient pharaoh is such an interesting concept that my group and I jumped at it. We were told this is was a tier 3-4 which would have been fine for our group, and a great way to introduce a friend to a module.

By the end of the encounter, the entire group was tired and aggravated. With hard hitting foes that no amount of early AC could possibly protect, ability damage (doing this at level 3? Really?) and a construct enemy with 8 DR, this was an incredibly unfair module. I have to give credit to our GM who realized the BS of Risen from the Sands and helped mitigate some of the issues.

If this were reclassified as a possible 4-5 Module with better PreGens, I could see this as a viable game to run, but for now, I say to avoid it.


All sands

****( )

Combat-central, but enjoyable, digging into a pyramid, fight with guardians and get the treasure!

Have some decent fight, but I think the first fight is a little too deadly for new players, I have heard many TPKs within 1 hour. And the BBEG fight is a little bit save or suck, my heart bumped so fast.

Strongly suggest play with four level 4 characters, except powergamers. If you prefer social or investigation, avoid this.

Interesting...
After reading about how much Rob likes Osirion in The Half-Dead City foreword, it makes sense that he's writing this.

EDIT: By the way, is that the final cover? Who are those two characters that are charging the mummy?

We have a swashbuckler and I would say a Bloodrager or warpriest.

Almost certainly the warpriest - it has been confirmed elsewhere that the warpriest iconic is a half-orc and a Gorum worshiper.

I'm going to jump out in front of this WAY before it even comes up (which it certainly will).

Risen from the Sands is awesome—I just ran it last week and we had an absolute blast. Rob McCreary did a fantastic job and poured equal shares of artistry and sadism into this work.

Not detracting from any of that in the least, but still a thing of note, is the fact that there's a very visable typo marring the back cover. In the tagline at the top, in about 1,000-point font, the word "Pharaoh" is misspelled "Pharoah."

And that is TOTALLY my fault.

I made a change to the line during my final approval and no one past me ever saw it. So 100%, unequivocally, absolutely, without a doubt, my fault.

Of course, as always happens in cases like this, that means I learned about this when we got our first printed copies in house. You know, when it's absolutely too late to correct the issue.

So that's a thing. A personally and professionally embarrassing thing that—along with 10 years of dishonor—has resulted in the hanging of a very clearly lettered Post-It note in my office.

While the print copies will bear this beauty mark, the error has already been corrected on all PDF copies.

In any case, my deepest, most sincere apologies to gamers, Egyptian nobility, and literate sorts everywhere. Fortunately, though, my utter failure has absolutely zero impact on the awesomeness you'll find on the front cover or on any of the pages within.

On a slightly lighter note (if there are such things as lightness and joy anymore), if you're a fan of schadenfreude (and who isn't?), here's a link to the moment this was brought to my attention. Enjoy... you jackals.

Wait a minute! If this module provides an early preview of the final ACG classes, does it contain the updates that were made after the last playtest document?

Unlikely. But we will almost certainly see the significant changes that were made which apply to the first three levels of four of the ten classes.

In other words it will most likely be a teaser in the truest sense.

The pregens were created with the class rules available in February. These are refined from the playtest, but we also put in the caveat that these might not be the final-final builds.

This sounds cool, really. And I understand that you want to preview the new ACG, but is there a reason why you couldn't do that with We Be Goblins 3? I love the We Be Goblins series, I buy it every year (my local FLGSs dont do Free RPG Day) but I guess I'll just get the free PDF of this one this year.

Please, bring back more Goblin focused adventures (or an AP, everyone else is behind a Goblin AP, right?), they were seriously some of the best fun I've ever had running or playing PF.

You may have fun running/playing goblin adventures, but they are some of the stupidest things I have seen out of Paizo. I would be happy if there was never another We Be Goblins again, but I understand that due to the popularity of We Be Goblins, that a part 3 will be due at some point. However, please understand that the entire fanbase doesn't like Goblin adventures, and we would like to get some love from Paizo during Free RPG Day too.

Sczarni

I look forward to playing this.

Do we have to use the ACG pregens or can we use our own pfs characters? My Crusader Cleric of Gorum will be lvl 3 by then and will love going up against a few undead.

I assume this will be like the recent modules and will be 1XP and 2PP.

Is it even PFS sanctioned at this time? Will we get chronicle sheets if we play on RPG day?

I would note that there was a spare free RPG day between We Be Goblins & We Be Goblins Too, so it may well be that next year that we get another taste of Gobliny Madness.

There is also the concern of Richard Pett's schedule as well.

Silver Crusade

Will there be PFS credit for playing/GMing this module, much like there is for the "We Be Goblins" modules?
