Sky Citadel Jormurdun - we ever go?


Pathfinder Society


So Season 5 seemed to gear up to the Pathfinders getting into Sky Citadel Jormurdun but then it never eventuates. There seems to be no adventures in Season 5 that deal with entering it nor any adventures in Season 6 that mention it. Did something happen in one of the scenarios - perhaps The Paths We Choose - that prevent it? I'm happy for spoilers. I just need to know what happened with it.

The season 6 opener 6-00 which is a multi-table special event deals with it.


Ahh, how did I miss that? I flicked through the various scenarios, had a quick squiz at the summaries, yet somehow missed it.... *head desk*


Or rather, that's why ... they haven't released it yet or at least I can't find it anywhere under the Season 6 scenarios.

Legacy of the Stonelords is what it is called. 6-00

Yep, they went. Looking forwards to playing through it eventually. Sad that the other Sky Citadel characters are too high level.

Spoiler free:

The thing found inside prompts a lot of the season 6 explorations.

The slightest of spoilers, considering the name of season 6:
The Society obtains an artifact called The Sky Key...or at least part of it.

Grand Lodge 3/5

Played the scenario on my Dwarf...... Let's just say that while he could do some things, he wasn't much of a help to the group he was with, with the exception of breaking things.

This one is a blast. Play it if you can.

Spoiler:
At the end, there's an encounter with some arachnids and you have to get out of the place as fast as possible. My wild empathy focused druid belly rubbed the arachnids onto our side (they're so cute when all the legs twitch!) , then the party put wayfinders and a sign on them that read "I am a shapeshifted pathfiner. Come with me if you want to live" on them and sent them to "Fetch" pathfinders

The multi table specials as a rule of thumb are not released to the public during the year they run. The VOs have access to it, and people who are going to run a table at the event, often have the PDF of the multi table special added to their down loads in their account.

In past years the special "opened" up the year's "Meta Plot".

In August of 2010 it was "year of the Shadow Lodge"

In August of 2011 it was " Blood under Absalmom" during the Year of the Pheonix

in August of 2012 it was " Race for the Rune Carved Key" during the Year of the Risen Rune

In August of 2013 it was "Siege of the Diamond City". during the Year of the Demon

August of 2014 it was " Legacy of the Stone Lords" during the Year of the Sky Key.

This year Legacy of the Stone Lords both finished Year of the Demon's plot, and began Year of the Sky Key's plot.

I hope this helps

By the way, IIRC, It was "Year of the Ruby Phoenix" not "Year of the Phoenix", referring to the module, "The Ruby Phoenix Tournament", a Tier 10-12 module, which has the Pathfinder Society sending a team to Goka to compete.

Next summer, the Con special is going to be "Race to the SPCA", opening up the Year of the Kitten.

Coinciding with the much-anticipated release of the Player's Companion "Kittens of Golarion".

And here I thought it was going to be "Year of the Scorpion's Bite", where everyone and her brother have to use only the scorpion whip as their weapon. All the favored weapons change to scorpion whip.

Sovereign Court 4/5 5/5 Venture-Lieutenant, Netherlands—Leiden aka Ascalaphus

I recently played this one, and I think it's the best mass adventure for PFS so far. The big fight where everyone is in the same room together makes so much more sense than the big room fight in Year of the Shadow Lodge.

You are welcome. I mainly remember it because it is on my GM Star Replay wish list, but with the realization that it is going to be the hardest one to do, even with the PFSOC as a source of high level PCs.

Right now, my highest level PC is too high level, being 14th.

My two PCs who are 12th level are not eligible for Ruby Phoenix, because one has my player credit for it, and the other has my GM credit for it.

My next highest PCs are both, currently, at 8th level, so they have some way to go to get to that 11th level minimum. And one of them may not be terribly welcome at high tier tables, being, as he is, a <<_>>_<< Rogue! >>_<<_>>

What's wrong with Rogues?

Rogues rawk... just ask any table I've been at! Getting you by traps, dealing 7d6+7 damage per hit, being the party face, whatever!

Heck, some straight rogues have been known to out damage the team's barbarian!


1 person marked this as a favorite.

I had that happen from time to time. The outdamaging part, that is.

The only thing wrong about Rogues is the people who think wrongly about them.

I like having rogues in our party. Ours was our major damage-dealer in Eyes of the Ten.

On the other hand, rouges I just can't abide.

Shakes head slowly.

Grand Lodge 3/5

Rogues look fun, and I may just make one later..... Having fun with my bard at the moment though.

Shadow Lodge 4/5

A rogue would have helped immensely in our Jormundun dive.

Anyway, although it cost me an opportunity to use the Hero of the Hold boon from season 5, since that one is on a different char, bringing two freaking Stonelords(+ 2 other dwarves + one grumpy human) for the ride was immensely satisfying.

And for the dwarves themselves, it was magical. A religious pilgrimage covered in blood and guts.

Spoiler:
And that sweet twist. Wish I hadn't been on the gm roster(my table was riddled with scheduling issues and didn't go off so I played instead) so it it would have come a surprise)

Sovereign Court 4/5 5/5 Venture-Lieutenant, Netherlands—Leiden aka Ascalaphus

Eh. Instead of a rogue we brought a Trapper Ranger 6/Living Monolith 2 that was very consistently Vital Striking for 6d6+19 or so.

Sure, he wasn't doing the social stuff (we already had a bloodrager and a paladin for that), but he was acing all the Engineering, Linguistics and History stuff that you'd expect in an ancient dwarven city. And he dealt professionally with all the traps. (There was a gratifying amount of all of these.)

Played my 11th level Dwarven Rogue thru Legacy of the Stone Lords. Taking 10 I had a 35 for spotting traps, We waltzed thru several encounters because of this.

The rogue I mentioned above used a great axe. He did 1d12+8 (+6d6 with flanking) while Power Attacking during combat. Don't get yourself stuck on only one way to build a rogue.

Sovereign Court 4/5 5/5 Venture-Lieutenant, Netherlands—Leiden aka Ascalaphus

What I thought was really cool about this scenario is that it really manages to deliver on the stuff you expect from an ancient dwarven city. It's got history, traps/engineering, religion, subterranean monsters, all of it.

The scenario does quite reward you for actually bringing a somewhat thematic character, it's far from being just a generic dungeoncrawl that you 2H your way through. (Although some sudden extreme violence does help, of course.)

Scarab Sages 2/5 5/5

Hah, I wished we had had someone with trap skills. My bloodrager had to disarm them in the traditional barbarian way by taking the damage and surviving.


My paladin was quite useless in combat but stepped on most of the traps and survived thanks to high saves and AC. He's diplomacy skills and boon-given understanding of dwarven language helped too. All in all, the most fun of the specials I have experienced thus far. :)

I still kinda wish I had played it with my rogue. He did pick the lock to get in the darn place to begin with in <redacted>.

I don't know the "proper" way to build a Rogue.

My 8th level Rogue does 1d10+10 (+4d6 sneak with flanking) at present, 15-20 threat range, without Power Attack.
With Gang Up, and the likelihood of other melee combatants, he can get flanking from the second rank (reach weapon), he also has Shadow Strike, so sneak attack on concealed targets.
Improved Unarmed Strike (1d3+6 +4d6 sneak, when appropriate), so he can threaten and attack adjacent while still wielding his fauchard

Disable Device: +19
Perception: +12 (+4 bonus for trapfinder, +4 bonus for Canny Observer, so +20 to find most traps)
3 AoOs with Combat Reflexes

Only a 14 Dex, so he is not as good with some Rogue stuff as those Dex-based Rogues are. 22 Str, though, means he is still nasty as a melee combatant, even without sneak attack.

Sovereign Court 5/5 5/5 Venture-Lieutenant, Missouri—Cape Girardeau

your 7d6 comment made it sound like you could only build dex nbased rogues. Both yours and mine are Str based rogues.

An ioun stone slotted in this manner grants you its normal benefits (as if it were orbiting your head), but frequently reveals entirely new powers due to the magic of the wayfinder itself (see Seeker of Secrets page 51).

Rogues actually require thought, strategy, and tactics to play. They are not as meat heady as Evokers, Barbarians, Fighters, and clerics. Those are easy mode classes. A GOOD Rogue is going to be awesome always. There should not be a point they cant be useful. I love Weapon Finesse/Agile Weapon/Acrobatics/Feinting Rogues. So much fun.

Sovereign Court 4/5 5/5 Venture-Lieutenant, Netherlands—Leiden aka Ascalaphus

Rogues are for people who want to play Hard Mode, All Of The Time. If you're that good, and you enjoy it, more power to you.

Sadly, some people pick up the rogue because of the class' name. It's an honest mistake; they want to play "a dashing rogueish sort of guy" and end up with a class that happens to be called Rogue. However, the concept of a rogue doesn't really require the class, and other classes may be more satisfying because they're playing on the normal power level.

Kinevon; I'm not familiar with a Faulchard off the top of my head. Is it a reach weapon? If so, the Combat Reflexes makes sense. I find CE to be a wasted feat as few gms will ever expose their creatures to AoOs. Looks solid though. And Byron has a couple of GM levels also.

A fauchard is essentially a glaive with an 18-20x2 crit range and the trip property.

The fauchard is found in Classic Horrors Revisited. One of only a few items that are legal in that book.

Yep, in the Derro section.

I have at least two PCs using it.

Reach weapon, trip keyword, 18-20 x2 crits (one of my PCs has Improved Critical and Butterfly's Sting), 1d10 damage.

And this is not my only PC who has Combat Reflexes, but almost all of them use reach weapons, and have at least an option for tripping, if not the build for it. I think Dominic is my least CM-capable PC with a reach weapon.

Kinevon was just ugly, and that was with the Poelarm Master archetype, and the fauchard, for Fighter, while Bruno is even worse, in some ways, with the Lore Warden archetype, and the whip (with feats), for Fighter.
