A Pathfinder Society Scenario designed for 4th-level pregenerated characters.

For several years, the Pathfinder Society has enjoyed a mutually beneficial alliance with the Sewer Dragons, the dominant tribe of kobolds living beneath Absalom. When an elite patrol discovers a wounded member of the Society with a desperate message, the Sewer Dragons must move quickly intercept an extraordinary threat from seizing their territory—if not Absalom itself! In this special adventure the players portray kobolds as unlikely defenders of the City at the Center of the World using 4th-level pregenerated characters.

Written by Thurston Hillman.

Note: True Dragons of Absalom is a limited release scenario. It may be run anywhere, but only by 5-star GMs. Venture-Officers may only run this scenario if they meet this star rating requirement.

Fabulous if you have the time for it

4/5

I enjoyed this scenario tremendously. There are some very entertaining NPCs (thanks in part to the thespian capabilities of our 5-star GM), and the pre-gens were written in such a way as to encourage player to role-play as kobolds.

There was a uniquely kobold-ish mechanic for the 2nd encounter that, while time-consuming, fit the scenario perfectly and was a lot of fun for everyone at the table.

I suspect that many tables only get to enjoy the first half of the scenario, and never even set foot on the other side of the portal, which is unfortunate. It took my group EIGHT HOURS over two sessions to complete this scenario. We loved every minute of it, but if you don't have that much time, I'd recommend another adventure.


A very fun scenario!

5/5

The kobolds are definitely fun to play. The scenario is packed, so make sure you have enough time for it.


A very fun and unique scenario

5/5

True Dragons is worth playing just for the large encounter in the middle section, but the rest of it is pretty good too. If you get a chance to try this one, I strongly recommend it. The only real caveat is that you need to keep an eye on the time a bit, because it is a scenario that can get away from you depending on how long the PCs decide to take on some things.


Kobolds are Best! Better than the rest!

5/5

Full of memorable characters, hilarious situations, and so very many traps. A blast to play, even better than the goblin scenarios.


Kobolds Rule, Goblins Don't!

5/5

I loved the scenario, as well as everyone and everything in it. Plus, the boon alone would have gotten me to try to play this. Though that's mainly favouritism speaking.

The problem is, there's so much fun, intriguing stuff in here that it's hard to fit it all in on time. Especially considering the nature of the pregens, you're basically encouraged to over-think everything. Add that to the fact that the special bit roughly halfway through the scenario can easily be over-thought, and players who can't co-ordinate can run out of time before even that part's over.

So if everyone can keep that in mind, they're in for a delightful scenario (and a big surprise for the other players in their next scenario!)

It's unfortunate for us too because we only just got a 3-star last month. Maybe someday we can run this in our little burg.

What you need to do Kevin is organize a game day and sweet talk Myron Pauls from Winnipeg into coming out and running both of the exclusives for whomever wants to play them. Bribing him might be good, putting him up in a nice hotel or something might go a long ways too. If you could talk Scott Young into coming with him, he could run Serpent's Rise while Myron runs True Dragons.

Something to think about. Back when we only had one VO/5-star in Michigan, Doug Miles would go all over the state to run the exclusives for people. If you reach out to them, they just might be willing to help you out. I know I really enjoy running both of the exclusives and if someone offered me a place to stay and maybe a meal I'd be willing to drive a few hours to run them for a group.

We've got a Gamesday coming up next month, and could provide free pizza, but Myron and the others will be running the exclusives at their Convocation this weekend. Because of the limited number of 5-stars, the players were drawn via lottery. We'd likely have to do the same thing.

Is there any way we could remove the watermark on the pregens we hand out? For security purposes I don't like to give out my paizo.com email address to people at conventions.

Spoiler:

Especially because I bet players will want to keep their pregen.

Heya, we just pushed through a fix for this, and the pregens are now provided to folks who have this scenario as a separate unwatermarked file. If you redownload, you'll be able to grab them :)

Typo!

This looks crazy cool.


I'm looking to buy a copy and don't understand HOW CAN A DOWNLOADED PDF COPY be UNAVAILABLE...! Did someone hack your files and delete it? WTF gives????

True Dragons of Absalom is an exclusive scenario intended only for 5 Star GMs in the Pathfinder Society organized play campaign. It is not purchasable as other PFS scenarios are.


So what's your point?
You know, TriOmegaZero, if you click on the name of the poster, then on their profile (if not already there) it will show you the number of GM stars they have, if any. You should try it sometime.
Anyone at Piazo have a better reply?

You don't buy it. If it's not already in your downloads you'll need to contact customer service about it.


Ahhh... thank you, I'll check my downloads.


So not to resurrect a dormant thread, but I was curious...
When applying credit, do you apply the credit when the character hits the tier (3-5) if not there already or do you wait until the character hits level 4 (the level of the NPC)


Scenarios like this are applied when the character reaches any level within the tier.

There was comment made that this in now a four star and not tied to convention play... is that correct?


Best adventure. Kobolds Rule, goblins drool. 5/5 stars.

This scenario is a 5-star exclusive. However, it is not limited to conventions.

Good idea. I declare you an honorary Kobold.

puff puff puff - getting there!

Is this still a 5-star exclusive?

Still 5-Star exclusive.

Boon Question:
The field commission, can it be used on characters other than the one the chronicle is applied to? I have a character who has leveled to 7, so technically cannot play as a 4th Level pregen. Can I cross off the boon and use the pregen on a separate character?
