A Pathfinder Society Scenario designed for levels 5-9.

Beautiful and influential, the Blakros family rose to prominence in part thanks to an ancient pact they at last broke nearly a decade ago, drawing the ire of the sinister Onyx Alliance. Ever since fighting off these foes, though, the Blakroses and Pathfinder Society largely assumed their enemies defeated—at least until spotting Alliance fetchlings wielding treasures stolen from the Blakros Museum. At considerable cost, the Blakros family has hired the Society to identify the thieves and learn of the Onyx Alliance's plans. Can the PCs separate truth from illusion as their investigation takes them to gloom-shrouded Shadow Absalom?

A Wonderful Season PFS1 Conclusion to the Blakros

*****

I played this adventure at subtier 8-9 and I haven't run it.

This felt like a nice conclusion to a lot of the elements of the Blakros family that have come up over the years. It has a lot of callbacks to previous adventures.

The adventure opens with a heavy investigation emphasis and eventually leads into more combat focused encounters. We don't get much of a chance to explore the city, but I didn't miss it that much as we got to delve into a few encounters that felt like they gave me a nice sense of the area.

At the start the GM provided a list of scenarios stating that my presence in those might affect the scenario. As I was starting up it made me feel like I was missing content by having other character out of tier for the adventure. I realize that isn't the case, but I would suggest GMs not to emphasize the list of Blakros related scenarios as unlocking any additional options, content, or bonuses.

I did one have an partial issue with some of the callbacks and referrals to prior adventures.

At some point the adventure brings the party into contact with a character that is from a 5-star exclusive scenario. A lot of my questions about this character were cut off by, "can't talk to you about that without spoiling this other scenario." At this point, since we are at the end of the run of PFS1, it felt certain that I'm not going to get a chance to play this scenario and it is especially true for my friend who had no idea who this character was. While I enjoy the reference, it felt like it relied too heavily on knowledge from that previous scenario.

Aside from that issue, I had a good time with this adventure.

Ouch. That 5-9 tier is a game changer. I'm going to have to hold off leveling Xadd, my Wayang Alchemist, for this one. I've been waiting for more Blakros/Onyx Alliance content.

Or, ya know, my nefarious "grand plan" that I've been building up since ~2011 and have put out breadcrumbs throughout a ton of my scenarios in one form or another. The same plan that gets some pretty major reveals in Distant Realms. It COULD be that related to that too... <3
