A Pathfinder Society Scenario designed for levels 5-8.

Panic spreads throughout the Qadiran city of Sedeq when a party hosted by the infamous genie-binder, Corvius Vayn, goes horribly wrong. With wishes dispensed like confectionary to the guests, Vayn’s manor is now something out of a child’s wildest imagination and Sedeq’s town guard are paralyzed to act. With few good options, the Qadiran government requests the Pathfinder Society’s assistance in assessing what has happened in Vayn’s manor and put an end to the errant wishcrafting.

    5/5

    Well executed plot.

    Compelling Encounters.

    Meaningful Choices.

    Memorable NPCs.


    5/5

    I had a leg up on enjoying the scenario because I got to play at an author table, but it was well-organized, fun, and felt like something worthwhile was accomplished. The combat encounters were balanced and meaningful, and the NPCs were really well-rounded and entertaining.

    My only minor gripe was that the PFS1 legacy boon referenced definitely seemed more negative in connotation when I got it; I was kind of hoping something bad would happen to my PFS2 character through absolutely zero fault of their own. I quickly concede I may be in the minority on this one.


    Straight forward, simple and lots of fun

    5/5

    I have played this at high tier (with a group of 5 casters and me, a rogue) and I have now prepared to run it.

    Overall this is an excellent 5-8 scenario. It deals with stuff suitable for the level, its nice, simple and straightforward. It looks easy to run and was a lot of fun to play.

    If I have one criticism, I would have liked the interactions with the trapped guests to have a little more weight in the scenario. Otherwise I highly recommend this one.

    Cover art looks great! Too bad it releases 2 weeks too late for WhosyerCONline. But, wishes gone awry? That sound like a lot of fun. Can't wait.

    Hey! All my PCs resent that!

    Maps that are in 4 or 12 pieces again, if you try to extract them for VTT use, to play in the plague year are also a good answer to what else could go wrong.


    The multi part map at the end also appears in the 1e adventure To Judge a Soul Part 2 as a single image.


    Reading over the encounters I noticed that something would not work properly.

    Spoiler:
    For the encounter in area D the instructions indicate that the NPC "typically throws her trident twice" but the appropriate returning rune to make that happen is not listed in the item description.

    Should that be considered added to the equipment in question?
