A Pathfinder Society Quest designed for levels 1–4 (subtiers 1–2 and 3–4).

Venture-Captain Calisro Bennary has arranged for the PC's transport to the pirate haven of Port Peril to make contact with Free Captain Stella Fane and negotiate a contract with her, facilitating Society movements through the pirate blockades in the area. The job seems simple: track down the the pirate captain, secure the agreement, and then return to Absalom. But few things are simple when a den of villainous pirates is involved, and it's unlikely the PCs will be able to leave Port Peril without throwing a few punches in a proper pub brawl!

Gm can make or break this quest

5/5

a good GM makes this a good quest. Someone who likes pirates or cayden calian themed things will do well in this. however it can be possible for it to be a little unfun if done incorrectly or not even roleplaying is done. A little roleplay goes a long way here


Arrr

5/5

I ran this in a single session of quests 1-4, with the repeatables (Q1 and Q4) first, back-to-back. Comparing Q4 to Q1, it has a little more mechanical complexity and is more colorful lore-wise. I personally prefer Q4 to Q1 simply because of the lore (but Q1 would certainly be a better choice as an introduction to new players.) There are 3 encounters to choose from.

As a rule, I don't expect a lot of depth out of a quest, which is after all, only meant to run an hour. However, I really liked the setup and setting of this one, especially the way in which the party was delivered to the location, which was different and interesting. I also appreciated the (admittedly tenuous) connection to the campaign meta plot.

In the combat encounter, the modeling of the crowd as a hazard is a novel experiment, though both the implementation and the fluff justification are uneven between the 3 different encounter choices. The motivation for both the skill check section and the combat encounter is also a bit silly and relies a little more on worn tropes than on in-game justification, but that's ok - I think this quest should really be approached with a lighthearted touch and willingness to suspend disbelief.

Overall, I think this is a fine quest.


Nice try

2/5

Disappointing. The main combat is not challenging and a little too virtual, getting rid of much tactical challenge or choice. The fact that it includes an element that can just make a player twiddle her/his thumbs for a while does not add any joy. The rolplay encounters a little bit too straight and by the book, too.

Not yet, but if I had to put money on something, I'd bet on Pub Crawl.

Or maybe this one instead, which you can still get?

Umm, those are the same map. I'm betting it's gonna be Waterfront Tavern seeing that pirates are involved.

Yes, they're the same map, you can't purchase the first version however, you can the second one David linked.

Which was my bad, honestly. I'd forgotten the GameMastery stuff was out of print.

I'm hoping for Tavern Multi-pack. So, well there be drinking rules? I'm thinking if running this one at home with my adult friends and turning it into Pathfinder the drinking game. Lol!

So when will this module be for sale? I figured we would be able to get it today, but obviously that didn't happen.

As it was added to my downloads, I can say this about the maps:

Spoiler:
Tavern Multi-Pack features here, 3 of the 4 maps. The road side one isn't used.

This reads like a good one. I'm prepping it and putting it in my back pocket for drop-in sessions.

Shouldn't this be available by now? It used to say November 27, right?

Perhaps someone had to press the magic button but forgot to do so on the 27th, and now Paizo is closed for a long weekend after Thanksgiving.

Let's hope the magic button gets pressed when they come back on Monday.

Is there a reason why this was taken down and not available for purchase?

There is only three maps used. This quest uses the Tavern Tavern Multi-Pack. Of the four Tavern Multi-Pack maps, the road side map isn't used.

Oh, great! Thanks.

Huh? A two-star rating? Is there a more in length review about why?
