A Pathfinder Society Scenario designed for levels 1–8 (subtiers 1-2, 3-6, 7-8).

In the jungles of the Mwangi Expanse, a large group of Pathfinders stands ready to travel beyond a magical gateway whose mysteries stymied a group of the Pathfinder Society's founders. What lies beyond the doorway is also the crux of the plot of an ancient evil fey, the Thorned Monarch. Will the Pathfinders unlock lost fey magic, restore buried secrets from the Society's history, and purge the world of the Monarch's evil, or will they fall before the fey's minions and tricks?

Was super excited and now I'm bummed Katina!

The waiting is the hardest part!

Is that what Qxal's real body looks like or some of it's minions? :D

Really? Dang. I have been gathering the society modules all year and thought I could string together the main-arc ones for a quick month's worth of adventures. Guess that's not happening for a minute...

I have heard this is repeatable with different characters in different tiers. Is this true?

Yes. There are three different versions of this adventure (a 1-2, a 3-6, and a 7-8), each of which will be reportable under its own designation. So technically it's not "repeatable" in the way that's normally defined, but you can play each version of the adventure once with a different character at each tier.


Is it a multi table special or can it be run with one table

Multi-table special.

Haha. I had been coming here over the past several weeks hoping this would be available in time for this Sunday's game and just now read your post. (I'm guessing I probably can't get it ready within 4 days when it releases in 2021.)

Not with that attitude you can't. ;)

All jokes aside, super bummed to see this won't be available until next year since both the gf and I play characters from the Mwangi Expanse and I feel like this would be great character building for both of us. At least it's something to look forward to at next year's Gencon!

Next year at GenCon, the multi table special that will be played will be the new one made for next year, not this one. This one was played at GenCon Online 2020, and it will be purchasable only next year so that it can stay exclusive to selected Conventions that ask for it.

Alex, you’ve posted this in a couple places in the forums, but I don’t see any way to download the PDF. Katrina Davis said at the top of this thread the scenario won’t be available until August 4, 2021. What’s the real deal?

There's people that already have access to this Scenario, but for the general public, the Scenario is going to be available August 2021.

This; anybody who's run it at a convention has access now and therefore needed to be informed of the updated PDFs.

So if you’ve already played it at a given tier can you then play that same tier with a different character?

Nope (without some other replay mechanism). You can play it a total of thrice (once per level range), with a different character each time you play.

The Spark of Life boon says "check the box next to this boon to reduce the gold or material cost of a raise dead ritual to restore you to life by 50%." Since raise dead is a spell, not a ritual, is it supposed to be 50% off the spell or a resurrect ritual?
