A Pathfinder Society Scenario designed for levels 3–7.

When the necromancer-king Tar-Baphon rose as a lich and threatened to conquer all of Avistan, Taldor rallied its neighbors and led the Shining Crusade, a glorious campaign that defeated the Whispering Tyrant’s armies and sealed him away. For the better part of a millennium, Lastwall has guarded Tar-Baphon’s prison and fended off the orc tribes to the north, rarely sparing a second thought to the rich archaeological secrets that lie just below the soil. A local venture-captain has found a lost chapter to the Tome of Righteous Repose, which chronicles the demise of countless heroes of the Shining Crusade. At long last, this has earned the Society Lastwall’s blessing to uncover these lost sites, lay to rest the fallen crusaders, and repatriate the family heirlooms they carried to battle.

"From the Tome of Righteous Repose" is an evergreen, replayable scenario designed to provide a flexible adventure that confronts the PCs with a variety of threats more common to higher-level characters—all while uncovering the history of one of Avistan’s greatest conflicts. Depending on which lead the PCs take, they might explore the proud crusader nation of Lastwall, travel into the gloom-shrouded mountains of Ustalav, or risk an expedition into the orc-ruled wastes of Belkzen in pursuit of lost history.

This scenario is designed for play in Pathfinder Society Roleplaying Guild 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.

excellent replayable

Really nice replayable scenario, definetely a step up from wounded wisp or confirmation for replayability. Not as much flavorful as the normal scenarios but the set-up for the gm is flavorful enough for the gm to create an rich experience.

Is this the Confirmation for higher level threats? This sounds like the Confirmation but for higher level threats.

Can we get Janira Gavix killed again?

I have it on pretty good authority that she is in-tier for it.

I can't even imagine what the page count will be for this. Fascinating, and I know a player who will be ecstatic over the Ustalav element.

Woo hoo...Lastwall, and an Evergreen.


Now we are so happy, we do the dance of joy!

I think this experiment is going to be a success.

Played this last night with 4 on the upper sub-tier. It has a nice story arc and integrates well with some of the early Pathfinder AP/Campaign content (Carrion Crown, especially), further developing an important storyline. We played a variant with exceptionally creepy monsters for Halloween that kept us on our toes! There are definitely some nasties in there! :-) We had fun, and it was a 4 hr. delve. I am looking forward to the next random run!


Just going to ask... why not just make three cool scenarios that can be played in any order rather than try fit so much cool sounding content between two covers?

Grand Lodge

Pathfinder Battles Case Subscriber; Pathfinder Comics Subscriber

Because an evergreen is meant to be replayed by the same players multiple times. Three separate scenarios would have less variance between playthroughs and be less useful as replayable scenarios, if they were even classified as such.

Also, the experimental part of this scenario is giving GMs more freedom in assigning encounters and tactics, since a major complaint about organized play is that there is no recourse to adjust the scenario on the fly.

In addition, three different scenarios could be played by the same characters three times each. ^_^

The way the story is structured, it could probably just be one non-evergreen scenario. Imagine that during the writing process an author brainstorms several possibilities, then chooses the best one. This scenario chooses the best dozen or so and leaves it in the hands of the GM to randomly select or choose what is best for their gaming group.

Essentially, GMs get access to all the crazy ideas the author has, instead of just one idea.

Statblock question:
p. 32 ORC IMMOLATOR and ORC PYRO

where does the Resist fire 6 come from?

Fire Adaptation (Ex) doesn't kick in until level 10 for resist fire.

also shouldn't Fire Adaptation (Ex) give them "+4 bonus on all saving throws against fire and heat spells and effects" starting at level 2?

Resist 6, huh; are they pyrokineticists with the heat adaptation utility talent and 3 current burn?

Might want to take spoilery questions to the spoiler-tagged thread in the PFS GM discussion forum.


Thanks for the replies, seems reasonable enough :)

I look forward to having a go at that part :)

CORRECT! (As usual.)

And yes, please bring any spoiler-y discussions to the GM thread.

Confirmed!

So we can apply this scenario up to one time for each character regardless of the tier? or is just the lower tier replayable?

Grand Lodge

Pathfinder Battles Case Subscriber; Pathfinder Comics Subscriber

It can be applied to any Tier 3-7 character you play or as GM credit. The one copy per character rule also still applies.


thanks for confirming what I assumed :)

Still bummed that the General isn't a dog.....


I have a question about GMing this scenario multiple times. I've GMed this scenario twice. Both have been reported, but in my sessions list for the second session it says

"Player has already run scenario at session # 138 of event # 63471 A Muse N Games on November 08, 2016."

And the prestige for this session is reported as 0.

To me this implies that I DON'T receive credit for the second session. Could somebody clear this up for me? I've already run this scenario 2 additional times and applied the credit to future GM blobs so I'd like to know if I can keep applying the credit! Thanks.

Also, I LOVE LOVE LOVE this scenario

It is a known bug in the reporting system. For this scenario, ignore it.

How are we GMs supposed to handle the chronicle sheets? I take it we need to cross out all of the items not listed in the specific encounter arc treasure package?

Grand Lodge Contributor

The PCs should only gain access to the items they aquire. Cross all the others off.

Scarab Sages

Any tips for preparing this scenario? I'll be running it a few days from now and any tips would be helpful :)


I have a couple questions about applying credit from running this scenario as a GM:

1. Do I still have to cross off all the items that were not from the encounter arc I chose to run, or can I access all of these items because none of my characters were there?

2. Do PCs only receive the Worthy Foe boon affecting one of the four groups of enemies, based on which encounter arc they went through? How do you apply this boon to GM characters?

Aside from that, I'd just like to make the comment that this scenario was my first time GMing a table of PFS, and I think this scenario is really nice to have as a GM that doesn't have access to any other scenarios yet. Having one book that I can run forever is pretty cool.
