A Pathfinder Society Scenario designed for levels 7-11.

Over the years, the Pathfinder Society has sent several teams into the mist-shrouded Gloomspires to explore the tomb of the legendary pirate Sempet Sevenfingers. Each has contended with unforeseen horrors, but the way to Sevenfingers's final resting place and his treasures has remained hidden and sealed—until now. While Sempet's natural life may have ended, he remains a powerful opponent, one whose mastery over the magic of the Gloomspires has allowed him to reach beyond his tomb into a realm of myths and nightmares in order to seize a frightful new source of power. Can the PCs defeat this wily ancient pirate, or will they become the next victims of Sempet's greed?

Entertaining, and good challenge for high level characters

*****

I enjoyed playing this mod for several reasons:

1. There were interesting characters and interesting settings. There’s a story (and a grade A villain) who have been built up over several previous mods. If you have played them all, you’ll appreciate the details; if you haven’t played them all (I haven’t) then you’re not hopelessly lost and confused. Even the bit players, like Thael, are fun to interact with.

2. I felt like it was a good challenge for high level characters. At my table, there was a great ebb and flow of problems and solutions. Movement restrictions? Oh, this character can fly, this mount can walk on water. Insubstantial opponents? Oh, my weapon has ghost touch, this character has a spell that helps with that. Monsters that can dish out big hurt? We can put out a lot of damage too, eliminate threats, and not keep taking big hurt every round.

My only complaint is that there’s a lot here, and I don’t see how anyone’s going to finish it in 4 hours. I played at a 7 player table, which has its own issues, but it also allowed us to put out a lot of damage and burn through some fights that might have taken a small table longer.


Creepy, gory, and a great high-level challenge.

*****

The scenario is wonderfully creepy, morbid, and ominous, although that sort of content is not for everyone. Players who have issues with body horror will want to give this scenario a pass. It’s definitely not an scenario for kids. Any characters who played the previous Gloomspires adventures are going to get a bit more satisfaction out of this scenario than their compatriots who haven’t, and will find they get a few extra bonuses along the way.

This scenario is packed full of atmospheric environments, memorable characters, and foul villains. The battles are challenging and take place in dynamic locations. I particularly enjoyed the final encounter. Really well done!

Overall I think this is a really great scenario that won’t be for everyone. It’s creepy, gory, and a great high level challenge.

Besmara, bless our travels! We shall return to the Gloomspires once more!

My cleric has the first three credits and is delighted to return.

"Squawk! Besmara be praised. Its been too long since I sailed for the Gloomspires aboard the Pixie!

Finally! I've been holding off playing my pirate Gunslinger for just this occasion.

looking forwards to running this, my players have had a blast in every part (although there has been some bloodshed over time..)

Liberty's Edge

Well, looks like it's time to set sail and bring a little more liberty to the Gloomspire.

I'm running this on the 31st, any news on what flip-maps (if any) this uses ?

It uses Flip Mat Classics: Ship, Map Pack: Perilous Paths, and two new half-page maps.
