PFS scenario series


Pathfinder Society

4/5

Hi everyone,

I haven't been playing PFS for a long time, but I understand that there are some sort of series of linked scenarios. By "linked" I mean either that they have a common point of background (for example the Blakros museum), or that they are parts of a larger adventure (Eyes of the Ten or First Steps would surely qualify).

My question is whether a list of such series already exists or not. If not, would it be possible that people could post what series exist within PFS scenarios, in the interest of playing all the scenarios of a series with a single character, and if possible in the correct order?

Final remark, it would be best if we kept this list as spoiler-free as possible.

4/5

Anyone?

I'll work on it when I get home, but this will be a long set of lists.

Didn't even realize that that was a thing.

Almost exactly the same kind of thing as the Tide series, where the PTB built a sequel several seasons later to a previous scenario.

I only remember it because i just ran Fingerprints this past weekend, and someone mentioned somewhere in my hearing in the past few weeks about Fury being the sequel.

Now, to see if the players might be interested in the follow-up....

And to see if the newer scenario has less trouble with tricked-out Flesh to Stone casts, and near-infinite fireballs...

That should be Echoes of the Overwatched, not Everwar.

Thanks everyone!

Moreover, I was wondering if it was difficult to run all the scenarios of a given serie in order with the same character? What's your personal experience?

For a committed home group or regular gameday that commits itself to such an endeavor, it is not hard, with the exception of the Chelaxian Arc.

The Season 4 Lissalan Arc:
Portal of the Sacred Rune {Season 3}
Severing Ties
The Cultists' Kiss

I would include Day of the Demon under the Blakros arc instead of the Cheliax arc, after going through them. ;)

For completions sake, The Waking Rune is scenario 4-26 and designed for tier 7-11; Sub-tiers 7-8 and 10-11.

Love this list of arcs and pseudo arcs though! If anyone knows of another that continues with Seasons 5 and on, a link would be appreciated!

Not for Season 9, but Glories of the Past 1, 2, and 3 (in Season 4) sets off a large part of Season 5, leading ultimately to Sealed Gate, a multitable special, and then to retrieving the pieces of the Sky Key in Season 7.

Fate of the Fiend (also a 7-11, and also written by Larry Wilhelm) belongs with the other two "Fiend" scenarios

Then there are the various scenarios that are in some way connected to the Hao Jin Tapestry.
Most notable, of course, is The Hao Jin Cataclysm, but see also:

Additional Scenarios:

  • Wonders in the Weave, Parts I & II
  • The Rats of Round Mountain, Parts I & II
  • The Temple of Empyreal Enlightenment
  • Tapestry's Toil
  • Siege of Serpents

And, of course, there's the whole Scarab Sages storyline, culminating in "Salvation of the Sages".

Salvation of the Sages wrote:
Salvation of the Sages references and incorporates material from multiple prior scenarios the players may have experienced

Prior Scenarios:

  • The Many Fortunes of Grandmaster Torch
  • Heresy of Man Part 2: Where Dark Things Sleep
  • Destiny of the Sands Part 1: A Bitter Bargain
  • Beacon Below
  • The Unseen Inclusion
