A Pathfinder Society Scenario designed for levels 7-11.

When the Jeweled Sages, an ancient order of Osirian scholars, fled Qadiran invaders millennia ago, some perished, and others disappeared deep into territories once held by the pharaohs of old. With the help of the Jeweled Sages' long-abandoned tools, the eminent Tahonikepsu has discovered one of the sages' last known whereabouts in the wilds of Nex. What secrets lie within these inhospitable ruins that date back to the Age of Darkness, and what fate did the so-called Amethyst Sage meet within?

Content in "Ancients' Anguish" also contributes directly to the ongoing storyline of the Scarab Sages faction.

Written by Mikko Kallio.

Possibly my favorite now!

5/5

Going to keep it simple and suite, but this scenario has pretty much everything in it. Interesting mechanics (some new, some used before), good RP, and good combats. Terrifying ones, even, which is what it should be for a 7-11.

Played this high-tier with MisterSlanky GMing... we had a BLAST playing!


Scenario's Success!

5/5

I've run and played this scenario in the lower subtier, and enjoyed both experiences immensely, as did the other players in each of these tables.

The scenario has an excellent variety of social and skill checks, a few interesting and potentially challenging combat encounters and best of all it does a brilliant job continuing the Scarab Sages storyline.

The map, also, deserves special mention. I love how the author has managed to create an interesting and well compartmentalized map that all fits into a single flipmat.

5/5

I loved every last thing about this scenario. I quite literally have nothing negative to say about it, and as a result this is going to be a short review.

Two things stand out though:

1) For what might be the first time in Pathfinder Society, I felt like I made a real decision. I believe when I ran it my players did as well. This scenario for that reason alone gets flagged in the top ten.

2) I loved the dungeon delve aspect of this, from the exciting and appropriate combats, the "less cumbersome" (no pun intended) research rules, to the need to actually "explore" and experience the environment. I've never felt quite like a Pathfinder until this moment.

More like this one please!

Looking at that cover, I'm so glad my Scarab Sage Alchemist has wings.

So you'd think but that's an archer as well.

I'm pretty sure it doesn't shoot claws and stingers.

You only need a Amulet of Mighty Fists with the Sharding property from the Weapon Master´s Handbook to have that, now.

Don't break the relic/thing that powers the rebirth machine. Just don't. We got real lucky.
