A waking nightmare for 4-5 Pathfinder Roleplaying Game characters of 7th level.

The very land rises up against the PCs as they hike deep into country cursed by the ferocity of an ancient evil. Whilst retracing the route of a bygone army to recover a lost artifact, the party discovers that nightmares, monsters, and Nature itself strive to bar the way. Will the adventurers overcome their deepest fears to triumph, or do they lack the courage, skill and perseverance to walk the dark road?

Also included in "To Walk the Dark Road:"

  • A wilderness trek that will challenge the PCs survival skills and overland travel expertise.
  • Three new magic items (flayed feet of the druid, hands of the druid and mask of the druid) that test the limits of what risks your PCs are willing to take for power and embody the darkness of the road on which they travel.
  • A minor artifact, the Tear of the Mother, that may provide seeds for further adventures.
  • Adventure Hooks for parties of all alignments, with multiple options to resolve the fate of the Tear of the Mother.
  • Suggestions and tips on building suspense and controlling the pace of the adventure, with notes on how to handle parties of 6 or more or those of slightly higher APLs.

Congrats on having the first Pathmaster mod to get published, Michael! Very cool.


Congratulations to my fellow finalist. I'm very much looking forward to checking out your work.

Thanks all - I'm stoked. Had a great time writing the mod, and then playtesting it here before final draft with a bunch of great Pathfinders from the PFSOP crew here in Raleigh.

The maps, art and layout are sweet. Jonathan was hugely helpful as my editor throughout as well as the other AAW team members.

And many thanks to the various other 3PP forums I am involved with who helped me refine and revise my pitching style to get here in the first place. It is really great that Paizo encourages this fantastic community so well.


I think this is my favorite AaW so far! The extra info and hooks are very useful. Good job!

Thanks Dungeon Grrrl. Glad to hear.

What do you have planned next?!

Well...if more people like my adventure and I get some nice reviews and votes ;-) ... I have a few ideas percolating for a 6-part adventure path...

I am working with a few other 3PP at the moment - which is really great - so more of my adventures will be coming out.

I also have a few more pitches into AAW. I think maybe after GenCon, there will be some opportunities to see if any of those ideas have legs.


Reviewed first on, then submitted to Nerdtrek and GMS magazine and posted here and on OBS!

Nice review (as always) Endzeitgeist. Congratulations Michael.

Thanks Curaigh - happy gaming to you!


Congratulations Michael :)
