A Pathfinder Society Scenario designed for levels 1-5.

Shrouded in thick fog, the shifting Gloomspires north of the Shackles have long frustrated explorers. However, a recent discovery by the Pathfinder Society has revealed a brief opportunity to navigate the columns safely and search for the lost treasure of the legendary pirate Sevenfingers. The only problem is that the Pathfinders are not the only visitors to the Gloomspires.

Written by Tom Phillips.

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.

Slaughterfest

*****

I've both played this on high tier with a party that barely qualified (eeeep!), and run it for a low-tier party. Both were a success.

RP: 2; there's pretty much no RP in this one. You're exploring the island of nasty things that want to kill you.

Location/Story: 4. The location has nice flavour. You can really milk this as a GM. There's some story too, I hope that gets developed further in later seasons. There's clearly a buildup to more scenarios, so the story in this one is a bit simple, but satisfying enough.

Combats: 5. There's some pretty fierce fights here. But the environment gives the players the chance to apply some tactics to improve their chances. Props to the writer for making the fights rough but fair.

GMing perspective: 5. This one is uncomplicated to run, maps are easy to draw, and it's not likely to run overlong. It's enough material to give your players a good time and proper challenge yet pretty easy on the GM.

I'm keeping this scenario in my binder to run again. It's a good scenario if you suddenly need to run an extra table and a lot spicier than yet another Confirmation run.


Ghoulishly Good Fun

*****

Ran this tonight for the low tier.

Had a really good time with this scenario. Loved running it and although it ended with a TPK I think the players quite liked it too. If you play up the weird geometry and the sense of the unnatural you can add a nice Lovecraftian element.

The only issue I had was that it took four readings of the intro to understand that the jungle map presented was atop the spire. That could have been explained better. Otherwise a really good scenario.


excellent Halloween release

*****

I ran this the day after Halloween for a table of very young players (plus the mother of one of them) and every single one of them loved it. It was dark and weird and kind of gross. "The Polyp Hall," I mean come on, that's just awesomely gruesome. They also quite cleverly circumvented an encounter in a way that delighted everyone, and there were a lot of options written into the scenario, based on how people play it ... all told an excellent scenario.


Awesome atmosphere

****( )

We just ran this with 3 players and a pregen last evening

Partysetup:
Human level 4 brawler, human level 4 cavalier/barbarian, tiefling rogue/wizard and pregen Kyra

We finished in just under 4 hours, and there were quite a few wtf moments which contributed to it being an awesome adventure.

Story and flavor fit immensely.

A tiny nitpick though in spoiler below

Tactics:
Coup de grace in a 1-5? Okay it might have been on high tier, but still, creatures with a lot of chances to paralyse and then also having coup de grace in their tactics? Not my definition of fun.

And finally recommendation for hier tier being run

Group advice:
As it stands I would not suggest this scenario to be run for newer players (especially not in the 4-5 tier), unless they have at least 1 positive energy channeling capable person along, as well as a way to deal with a big swarm


Good scenario; great for Halloween.

****( )

Just ran this on October 30th; great fit for Halloween.

We ran with four players, high sub-tier. Things were pretty easy until the final battle, which was a stiff (but not overwhelming) challenge.

Pros:
* Oozes flavor. Lots of neat little descriptive flourishes really make things easier on the GM.
* Some hard choices can come up during negotiations.
* Came in right at four hours.
* Secondary success condition isn't a gimme.

Cons:
* Some of the pertinent info is a bit scattered around the manuscript.
* The descriptions of the hazards in the first room are a little jumbled.
* Many seemingly unnecessary changes in ceiling height (20'! 12'! 10!') were a bit of a pain to keep track of...

Oh gods what


I'll be keeping an eye out for this one!


It looks exciting!

Is it an omission or doesn't this scenario contribute to any faction's storyline?

This scenario does not contribute to any of the factions' goals—at least not directly.


Thanks for the information, John!

Ooooo, a Halloween release! I'd better make this one extra nasty. ;-)

I tried to search up where Gloomspires are. Apparently they are a "in this scenario only" type of location?

Doing my research, it appears to have been mentioned in an RPG SuperStar entry. Other than that, I know nothing about it.

Which map packs/flip mats are used in this scenario? (I really wish yall would release that info with every scenario once it has been finalized so GM's can see if they have the particular resources.)

Submitted by this adventure's author, featuring this adventure's location, and even mentioning the same NPC... hmmmmm... =)

GM's only:

I used this map for the top of the Gloomspire containing the tomb. Unfortunately, it's currently out of print.

You need more eyes than that.

Would this scenario be good for a character on a large mount? I can't tell from the description whether it takes place outside or inside.

In response:
It would be challenging but not impossible for a Large mount.

An amazing ride tonight. Thoroughly engaging delve into horror that brings the Society back to the explore part of the motto.

A bit of squeezing, but nothing bad. Only a few places are only 5 feet across.

I beg to differ; it would be extremely difficult to get the mount where it needs to go.

The side column graphics make the module unreadable in the bottom of the columns when printed black and white. Please stop those little graphical background flourishes that add nothing to the content as a playable module but mess with the printing

Anyone know if their will be follow-up scenarios like the Labyrinth of Hungry Ghosts published, or are anymore Gloomspire adventures not going to happen?

Hello, how many level 1 players is this adventure written for?

Thanks in advance!

Like any PFS adventure from Season 4 on, this is written with 6 players in mind, but there are adjustments provided to adjust it for only having 4 players.
