A Pathfinder Society Scenario designed for levels 3–6 (subtiers 3–4 and 5–6).

In part 1 of the two-part Perennial Crown adventure, the Pathfinders journey to the island of Bhopan for the first time in over four centuries! On the forested island where founding Pathfinder Selmius Foster met his demise, the PCs will meet the fey-descended Bhopanese people. Not all diplomatic negotiations take place in a stuffy meeting hall, however. In order to navigate the complex, fey-influenced customs of Bhopanese court and establish a relationship with the rulers of Bhopan, the PCs must find their way through a masquerade ball filled with complex dance steps and hidden agendas.

I am SO EXCITED to see how the fine players of PFS will react to my adventure - it is very different from most society scenarios!

If anyone has questions, let me know! :D

Endz!! Sweet!! I think this is your first PFS scenario??? Totally awesome, looking forward to checking out. Congrats, man! Well deserved.

Thanks Elorebaen!! :D

Yep, this my first PFS Scenario! I have written something that has never been done before in PFS, and in conjunction with Alexander Augunas' second part, this'll hopefully blow folks away! I've ran the final version of the two-part saga, and I had a blast!

Bhopan is very weird, and I hope people will like my interpretation of the place! I'm super-stoked to have the chance to contribute to Golarion's rich lore in this way!

Huh, Bhopan is piece of lore from 3.5 Burn Offerings that was never ever mentioned again? :D

Really great to see! The fact that there is a 2nd written by AA is icing on the cake!

It is fun to see super obscure lore being referred again :D

But yeah, do you feel pressure about yer first PFS scenario? ;D I mean now your readers can compare how you do writing to what you praise in your reviews!

On same topic, I've kinda wanted to try out writing scenario style adventure, but besides it being scary to try to send anything to companies in case I make bad first impression, its kinda scary how less good scenarios get torn down in some scenes :'D So uh, any tips on that front of "If you want to try freelance work how to get started?" style topic?

@CorvusMask: I have no delusions of grandeur; if anything, I'm a fanboy of the awesome writers and designers working on adventures. I don't really stress about how it holds up in *direct comparison*.

Why?
First of all, I feel genuinely honored to have been allowed to write this adventure and contribute to Golarion's canon. I didn't try to "beat" anyone, instead attempting to write something that represents my own style. I tried to write something different from what you usually get to see in PFS, and I'm super-excited and grateful that my dev and the Paizo-team was on board with that.

Secondly, I've read Alex' module (we obviously coordinated our efforts), and even if everyone ends up less than enthused about my weird little adventure, Alex' module is RIDICULOUSLY amazing. As in: Imho better than many campaign finales. And I stand by that. Alex has wrought pure gold.

That being said, while I don't stress about *comparisons*, I do stress about whether people will like what I did here, because it is pretty different, putting a strong emphasis on roleplaying and player skill.
I tried hard to do something unconventional here, and while tests were resounding successes, there is always that nagging fear, obviously.

So yeah, I am stressing out, just not for the obvious reasons. XD

@Jib916: I genuinely hope you'll have as much fun playing it, as I had writing it!

That is great attitude to have :D

That’s very kind of you, Thilo, but I hope that fans will look at our story as a whole rather than two parts. My half doesn’t really make sense without the hard work Thilo did building Bhopan’s lore.

While this is true of all multi-parters, I STRONGLY recommend playing both of our scenarios on the same character, back to back if you can manage.

Yeah, I hope that people will consider it to be a story in and of itself; I certainly wrote it that way...

Anyways, I wanted to echo Alex' sentiments - if possible, play the two parts back to back. The story, type of challenges, themes, etc. are explicitly written as complimentary parts of a bigger whole, and I think running them back to back makes them even better. :D
