A Pathfinder Society Scenario designed for levels 7-11.

Thousands of years ago, a defeated order of Osirian sages sought refuge in the perilous Pillars of the Sun in central Osirian. Until recently they were presumed lost, but recent exploration has uncovered the fortress sanctum they left behind. When the PCs delve into one of its sealed halls, they find the sages’ millennia-old projects dormant but not dead.

Content in “Beacon Below” also contributes directly to the ongoing storylines of the Dark Archive and Scarab Sages factions.

Written by Matt Duval.

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.

Lots of history, take the time.

5/5

Time to prep (GM), time to explore (PC), time to play (players). This is one of those scenarios that does a good job in presenting backstory to the players. Often backstory is kept in the GM's realm, but this did a good job reaching us (player). I enjoyed the locale (haven't played the other scenario set here). Those two things rank high in my play style, and it delivered. Time sensitive encounter was a little confusing, but it played out well. We were a little crunched for time, but the scenario has a good pace.

The challenges were challenging (plot, puzzles, combats, & others). Plus there are a few options to explore that aren't allowed in PFS (in the way that crafting is not allowed, but I don't want to spoiler). My jeweler thoroughly enjoyed this (like he enjoyed summoning a porpoise when he was sent on the Throaty Mermaid--just because he never had before. The Dark Archives had a similar experience and I expect the other faction will too (none at the table :)

If you have two characters in tier, choose the one whose faction fits. If you have Destiny of Sands alum, choose her/him for this one. It will be a blast.

mmmmm Bacon... oh wait that says Beacon... Damn it!!!

Scarab Sages

You mean there is no Bacon Sage? Dang was almost enough to get me to change my vote...

Silver Crusade

Wonder if these is unofficial follow-up to 5-16? Seems likely. More Mythic?

+1 for Bacon!

Grand Lodge

Hmm wonder if this is where the caravan leader went to...

Scarab Sages

In regards to 5-16

Spoiler:
There were 2 locked doors in the Sanctum of the Sages that were beyond the scope of scenario. As for mythic power, who knows, but last time it was the ending part of an important story arc.

Bacon Sage would get a lot of new recruits.

Had we started the whole Bacon Sage thing sooner I'm sure it could have been the most popular guild in Pathfinder Online...

Scarab Sages

Really hoping for a more offering using the "Mythic Adventures" sourcebook in PFS. Hopefully, this is in store for this scenario.


Hmmm...looks like cutting and pasting the maps is a no-go, just like the earlier season 6 scenarios. Is this a deliberate change? If so, why? If not, may we please get it corrected? Unfortunately, this is a pretty major blow to usability for people who play on VTTs.

Awesome; I'll give it a try!

I wonder what changed.

And it worked like a charm. You, sir, are the bomb.

I like how the cover critter is interested in the human female reproductive system.

Grand Lodge

I give this scenario 2 stars... and the only reason it gets that is because it has a pretty good story line. What knocks it down is the length. i signed on to play this expecting a normal 4 to 5 hour scenario and got hooked into an 8 hour session. this was with an experienced group and an experienced GM. there is just entirely too much content in this scenario to complete within the normally allotted time. In the end, i walked away from the table sore, frustrated and annoyed with only a lousy 1xp and 2 prestige to show for it... not happy.
