A Pathfinder Society Scenario designed for levels 1–4 (Subtiers 1–2 and 3–4).

When the Pathfinder Society receives word of a promising, unexplored ruin in Osirion, the PCs set out to uncover the site's secrets. Yet upon arriving, the PCs learn that a different group of Pathfinders has already entered the ruins. Has there been some mistake, is the site's magic playing tricks on everyone, or is there something more nefarious afoot?

This is for Second Edition, right? There should be something in the description (maybe even in the season name) that says so.

It is listed under "Season 1: Year of the Open Road" which is PF2E.

The Ruby Prince closed exploration of Osirions tombs in Second Edition.
So this scenario as presented makes little sense.

Is that the price of the new quests? It seems to be the same price as a quest pack of 4 quests, or a full scenario, which seems expensive

I see you've been paying close attention to the blogs! All I'll say on that for now is that the Ruby Prince's strong restriction on exploration sure does sound like an interesting plot point for our Osirion adventures in Second Edition.

Very excited to see how that plot point turns out! Does this use a flip-mat or flip-tiles?

As a quest, does that mean this is just a short 1 hour one-shot or 4 to 6 one hour quests?

This is the first of the new monthly one hour-ish quests.

You may have seen us talking about quests in previous blogs, but in case you haven't, we're going to be releasing more of them going forward. We're adding one quest to each month's releases starting with the launch of the Second Edition campaign, in addition to two Pathfinder Society scenarios. Having more quests allows us to explore more locations and stories, and it gives more content for times and places where people can't sit down to play for hours at a time.

However, quests in First Edition were a little challenging to handle because there were two forms those quests took: either a bundle of 4–6 quests that required players to play the whole series to earn the full rewards, or stand-alone quests that granted no XP, GP, or Fame. In Second Edition, we're building the campaign so that quests are a rewards-granting entity from the very beginning, even for stand-alone quests. With each being worth 1 XP, it should be easier to track their rewards—including no need for fractional XP.

the quests are basically designed to be short 1hr adventures you can play, kinda one of the parts from something like Honors Echo

I've got a couple of questions:
1) Any organized/official way to play this at GenCon?
2) Will this be included in the Pathfinder Scenario Subscription?

Hooray for quests granting 1xp now!

Price has been updated from $4.99 to $1.99, as quest are shorter and have less content than a full-length scenario.

Thanks! It was looking pricey for a Quest. Now, I may consider it for a Con that is happening in Montreal.

No. We normally offer quests in a free to play area in the Sagamore ballroom, but due to the low volunteer (GM) response this year, we had to cancel that area. The only place this scenario is being offered is as a supplement in the Academy area for the games for kids.

This quest uses one map.

The map is:
