A Pathfinder Society Scenario designed for levels 1–5.

Weeks have passed since Venture-Captain Nieford Sharrowsmith departed for the Bandu Hills, and having not heard from him since but learned of an Aspis Consortium expedition bound for the same destination, the Society and local allies have grown worried for the aging explorer’s safety. As the PCs travel south on Sharrowsmith’s trail, they must track the venture-captain to the ruins he sought while also dealing with the aftermath of his actions.

“On Sharrowsmith’s Trail” is the first scenario in the three-part Scions of the Sky Key campaign arc. It is followed by Pathfinder Society Scenario #6–14: Scions of the Sky Key, Part 2: “Kaava Quarry” and Pathfinder Society Scenario #6–16: Scions of the Sky Key, Part 3: “The Golden Guardian.” All three chapters are intended to be played in order.

Content in “On Sharrowsmith’s Trail” also contributes directly to the ongoing storylines of the Exchange faction.

Written by Robert Brookes, RPG Superstar 2014 finalist.

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.

Great low level scenario

4/5

I just ran this last night in high tier, and the players loved it! I had just enough time to squeeze in the optional encounter and I'm glad I did, since it led to one of the more tense moments in the scenario. The final encounter had a nice twist to it, so every time the party thought things were completely under control something unexpected happened. The only thing stopping me from giving it five stars was one encounter with slow moving enemies that never got anywhere since most of the party had range.

Preparation was pretty straightforward from a GM perspective, and having the statistics for most of the encounters included in an appendix was extremely helpful to keeping things flowing smoothly.

I've really enjoyed working on this scenario. Writing it involved channeling the spirit of old Lucas Arts Indiana Jones adventure games (Fate of Atlantis, specifically) as well as the 1930's flick Stanley and Livingstone. There's also a dash of Skull Island vibe from King Kong, too.

I've had a great time collaborating with Mikko Kallio, Mike Kimmel, and John Compton on this three-parter, and I'm looking forward to hearing people's impressions on it once it is released!

Is this one still on track for the 28th? I only ask because I have it scheduled at a con next weekend and I am hoping I didn't make a foolish mistake. Ha ha.

I foresee no reason why this would not go out on Wednesday as scheduled. Please be mindful that scenarios tend to go live around the end of the business day (Pacific Standard Time), so be sure that is part of your calculations.

Ok awesome. Thanks John.


Is there going to be a trilogy-boon for those who play all three scenarios with the same character?

This is a strong possibility, but I am not able to confirm or deny this until I have finished developing the third adventure.

Where is it?

I love the new format! It's going to make GMing so much easier for me. Thanks to the entire development team for making this happen!

I just saw the art! KOBOLDS! I love it already!

Now we just need a "We Be Kobolds" intro module and all will be right with the world.

:)


Don't get me wrong, I love me some kobolds. I'm sure its a fantastic adventure, but, the cover looks like "Jar Jar the Barbarian"...

GMd this scenario last weekend at low tier and had a load of fun. Best part ever was the

Encounter:
Party encountered the KRENSHAR and did a knowledge check. After a successful role they asked about special attacks. I told them and they said "thats the lamest special attack ever!" I proceeded to frighten 1/2 the party and all of a sudden it wasn't so lame:). Also had fun with Kobold Blade.

I was at a local hobby store today and had a conversation with a PFS GM who was really happy with the layout changes starting in this scenario. He had high praise for the inclusion of monster statistics in the back of the scenario!

Except for the one spoilered right above.

Um... The Exchange faction members make a choice that obviously affects the faction, but do we actually report this choice? There is no A/B in the scenario itself. :\


Just got this, running it with my party on Thursday. I'm going to sneak in Aerosmith song lyrics whenever I talk about Sharrowsmith...
