A Pathfinder Roleplaying Game Compatible GM’s Resource by Greg Marks

The residents of Feyhall live barricaded underground within the caverns of an ancient fairy hold in the Fey-Cursed Hills above the Twyll River delta. While the plague infested hungry dead, threaten from without, these rogues and treasure hunters dig deeper looking for the source of the strange lights and music haunting their haven. Food is scarce and what few supplies available are usually stolen from travellers or other nearby settlements. It is a lawless place where residents must be constantly on watch for not only ghosts of dead feyfolk, but also a knife in the back from their so-called allies.

Village Backdrops are short, richly detailed supplements that each present a single village ready to insert into almost any home campaign. Perfect for use as a waystop on the road to adventure, as an adventure site themselves or as a PC’s home, Village Backdrops present the details so the busy GM can focus on crafting exciting, compelling adventures.

This product is a Dual Format PDF. The downloadable ZIP file contains two versions, one optimised for printing and use on a normal computer and one optimised for use on a mobile device such as an iPad.

This installment of RSP's Village Backdrop-series is 11 pages long, 1 page front cover, 2 pages of advertisement, 1 page editorial/ToC, 1 page SRD and 1 page back cover, leaving us with 5 pages of content, so let's take a look at the settlement

Close to the village of Vaagwol, we get something completely different - Feyhall is pretty literally, the halls of fey, long abandoned - in a kind of refugee camp below the surface, Feyhall is little more than a bandit camp driven by desperation, lorded over by dread bandit lord Stig. Parasitic and dangerous (danger value +43 !!!), the camp does suffer - for the small complex is haunted by the Hunger, a flesh-eating zombie disease supplemented by a CR +1 template.

The pdf does feature 7 fluff-only notable NPCs and a total of 8 notable places within the abandoned halls of the sylvan court. The local populace does contain an infected person, a goblin who has infiltrated the place, the boss, a ranger trying to keep the dread Hunger at bay. Refugees can be found here as well and the Witchelyte, a CR 3 tiny undead, may well rise from the dead The pdf, as always, contains DCs for village lore as well as 6 whispers and rumors and 6 sample events. Oh, and there is this one locked down hallway that may prevent the aforementioned undead from entering the complex...the key is around Stig's throat...so yeah, the triggers for feyhall's downfall are basically already written into the very structure.

At the same point, one issue one can field against the pdf is that it does not have the same unique and distinct identity as some of the other villages in this series.

Conclusion:

Editing and formatting are top-notch, I didn't notice any glitches. Layout adheres to RSP's smooth, printer-friendly two-column standard and the pdf comes with full bookmarks as well as a gorgeous map, of which you can, as always, download high-res jpegs if you join RSP's patreon. The pdf comes in two versions, with one being optimized for screen-use and one to be printed out.

Greg Marks' Feyhall is a welcome change of pace, a village that is more a dungeon camp organized by the right of the strong; it is also a place that is very much defined by the threats it faces and its status as a collection of outcasts and misfits. The settlement works best when used in conjunction with Vaagwol, obviously and can be considered to be the externalized, darker underbelly of the area.

Is Feyhall particularly novel or unique? Honestly...no. But it is a nice little settlement that features some fun dynamics for the GM to throw the PCs in. Drop them in and watch things unravel as they go. So yeah, this is not a bad installment, but it is also not a settlement I'd immediately consider a must buy. My final verdict will hence clock in at 3.5 stars, rounded up to 4.

Endzeitgeist out.
