Dawn of a New Age

Fires burn atop the ruined citadel on Hellknight Hill, sending plumes of red smoke into the air that could be a call for help. Within the old keep, strange invaders from a distant land, mysterious long-lost ruins, and the machinations of a shadowy organization await discovery. Something dire is building toward an apocalyptic event, and it falls to your characters to stop the end before it begins. The Age of Ashes Adventure Path begins with "Hellknight Hill"—a complete adventure for 1st- to 4th-level characters.

A little linear

3/5

The NPCs are good. And there are some well scripted scenes.

But as with anything, the advantages also signal the disadvantages. Good NPCs are "protected" -- the module scripted to keep one from find out too much before it's time. And the scripted scenes, by definition, beg to be played -- which means a significant degree of linear movement through the adventure, and the inability to have the excitement of resolving or discovering something on one's own time.


More of a mole hill than a module

2/5

The first book in the Age of Ashes AP feels like a speedbump on your way to the portal hopping antics of the next 5 instalments.




Be willing to avoid needless combat - otherwise good

4/5

Nice adventure, took my group of 4-5 players roughly 30 hours to finish this. Overall, there's some weird plot holes and lots of needless combats. One thing I appreciated is there's not a 'grind until you're leveled up' aspect - I was able to use a milestone method for leveling, so my players didn't attempt to slaughter everything they met for gold and XP. Also, nice work adding in NPCs that have some depth. I enjoyed that the goblins aren't monsters, but can instead become staunch allies (and help progress the plot).


5/5

Simply a very good adventure to start playing pf2. You find interesting, very easy for a novice Gm in pf2 to direct and carry it correctly. There are opportunities for role-playing, research and combat in a manageable environment for a novice Gm.
The book is structured in a fantastic way.
Sincerely, a first book of the path totally recommended to start with pf2.

Hey folks, we are currently experiencing some issues with the file-per-chapter download of this product. We're looking into the issue, but it's taking a little bit longer than anticipated to troubleshoot. I'll make sure to post an update here along with the normal notification email when the files have been fixed. Thanks for your patience!

Update: Looks like we've got this ironed out now. It may take a while for everything to sync up, so some folks may need to refresh or try a different browser if they're still seeing issues in the immediate future, but it should be all sorted.

Hey Zaister, it looks like we updated the file on the 3rd because there were some issues with the Interactive Maps that needed to be resolved. I sent out a notification email to those with the PDF, but you have to opt in to notifications about digital asset updates on your My Account page to receive those. If you're opted in and still haven't been receiving them, let us know so we can investigate. Thanks!

Hi Katina, thanks for the information. I have checked my account page, and I have opted into all emails, so I should have gotten the update mail, but I haven't. I think there have been others recently, such as for the recent Gods & Magic update, and I didn't get an email for that one either. And yes, I have checked my spam folder. :) So, there seems to be something wrong with my account settings, I guess.

Over the past few months, we've been updating the community via blogs as to the organized play team backlog and workflow. A week and a half ago, we dropped our sanctioning information for the Lost Omens and Pathfinder RPG books. Age of Ashes is part of the next batch of Pathfinder (second edition) sanctioning. We have not released a date yet, because we need to ensure publication of Society scenarios is on track. There should be news in the not so distant future.


Awesome thank you tonya at least there is light at the end of the tunnel now.
