A Pathfinder Society Scenario designed for 1st- through 4th-level characters.

Following the desolation of Lastwall at the hands of the Whispering Tyrant, untold horrors wander the woods and roads of the region now known as the Gravelands. Many small refugee settlements are scattered throughout the area, their citizens either helplessly trapped behind enemy lines, or stubbornly hoping that they won’t be noticed by Tar-Baphon’s undead armies.

One such settlement became a new home for a Pathfinder agent—a dedicated member of the Radiant Oath faction—who had been traveling in Lastwall when the nation fell. The agent decided to help those in need rather than flee the Gravelands, and they’ve managed to keep the settlement protected… so far.

Now, with the settlement burgeoning with refugees and the Whispering Tyrant’s forces drawing near, the agent has made a desperate attempt to reach a Pathfinder lodge in Ustalav. They barely made it out alive—and now they’re asking for agents to return to the Gravelands and aid their stranded friends!

    Fun undead infiltration mission


    This was a lot of fun. Good mix of skills challenges and combat with lots of suspense. Love the story and objectives.

    My reason for only 4 stars is that this is a challenge to get done in 4 hours at a store. Felt rushed for our high tier group of 5 and they even managed to bypass 2 optional encounters with skills. Just felt like cramming too much into this one.

    Combat gets a bit repetitive but a good nostalgia trip


    I must say I enjoyed this more than I thought I would.

    Pros: diving into Whispering tyrant lands, flavorful atmosphere, sense of danger and suspense.

    Cons: The maps don't feel used to their best potential, Enemies and encounters get repetitive.

    Highlight: you get two missions from HH and RO and it made our group actively seek out to complete these goals instead of just following the narrative. I hope there's more optional sidequests like this.

    Heads-up: the PDF for this adventure was updated today. Nothing changed about the adventures, but initially there were only five player slots on the sign-in sheet instead of six. This has been corrected!
