A Pathfinder Society Special designed for 1st- through 6th-level characters (subtiers 1-4 & 3-6).

Having made several recent forays into a set of unearthed ruins in the volcanic region of Droskar’s Crag, the Pathfinder Society has uncovered what could be an access point to the lost dwarven city of Raseri Kanton. Pathfinder agents from across Golarion have come to support the Society’s latest large-scale endeavor. However, the Aspis Consortium have also begun exploring the ruins, so it’s a race to see who can reach Raseri Kanton first!

This adventure can be replayed for credit once in each of two level ranges: 1-4 and 3-6, each time with a different PC. Likewise, a GM can apply credit for running this adventure up to two times to a different PC in each of those level ranges.

    Seriously, the PFS special for end of Year 3 is tier 1-6? we are getting 1 scenario (so far) above level 8, what Golarion shattering problem is a level 6 going to solve while levels 7+ sit in limbo.... Ive got so many characters hovering around the 7-9 mark, are there any plans to support higher level play? im pretty sure that was a selling point when announcing PF2e? Guess it's back to running AP's

    ... Doesn't sound like a Golarion shattering problem, which is good. The "save the world, every year, same time, same place!" was getting super dull.

    Cavern of the sundered Song is 9-12, the tomb between the worlds is up to level 8, secluded siege is up to level 8, #3-17: Dreams of a Dustbound Isle and #3-19: Mean Streets of Shadow Absalom* are level 5-8 and 7-10 respectively (from the blog where metaplot arcs are mentioned). I wouldn't be surprised if we got another during this year, but it's understandable that there will always be more low level content and less high level content, given how characters level up (and to prevent new players from getting excluded).

    Also, weirdly, I don't think this is supposed to be "end of the year special". I think 2e moved away from that - the first special we got was "end of the year" (numbered 2-00), the next one we got was just a special with no ties to the metaplot (3-99). This one is numbered 3-98 and seems to be just a third part in a series of otherwise non-descript, non-metaplot scenarios. I really like this new direction because it dissipates the FOMO on the "start of the year special" and there's also no pressure to participate "just to see how the metaplot ended!" but it's still tied to (some of) the published scenarios instead of being completely independent (unlike 3-99). I really hope to see more of these going forward.

    Correct: this is not a metaplot scenario. It's unrelated to the events of the Year of Shattered Sanctuaries, and unrelated to the events of Year 4. The conclusion to the Year of Shattered Sanctuaries is PFS Scenario #3-19, which is for levels 7–10.

    Rigby and Thursty are putting together a super fun adventure for us. Jump in and enjoy it!

    They're both fine, perfectly serviceable scenarios. You don't need to play them both or in order, but it's nice to do so. The Dwarven Pantheon features prominently.

    What I like about them is that they both feature Pathfinder Society Field Agents exploring an site of archaeological significance. That's a lot less common then you might think.

    Can I put in a request for maps, please? I'm scheduled to run this at GenCon and I'd like to get the maps ordered as soon as possible.
