Depictions of Norgorber followers in APs


Pathfinder Adventure Path General Discussion


Which APs have followers of Norgorber in? I am mainly interested in where they show followers who are not simply humanoid clerics or rogues

It is not really clear to me (even from the wiki) what kind of non-humanoid creatures are utilised by worshipers so I am interested in if this is shown in APs

I know of Hells Rebels but the examples from there are higher level than I would like (and I am running it so want some variety earlier on)

AP:
War for the Crown
should give you some ideas, particularly book 5.
Spoiler:
A full third of it takes place in Norgorber’s realm.


As for AP's, I would have pointed you to Hell's Rebels.

But creature-wise, may I present the humble Karumzek?

It's a low level outsider with a ton of utility and you can easily add class levels. I slapped three levels of slayer on a pair of them and sent them after the PC's in Vyre as retaliation for their defiance of Hei-Fen.

Sadly my party obliterated them before they got to do much.

Don't forget Rise of the Runelords. Part 2 of that campaign was essentially the debut of the Skinsaw Cult.

I've always imagined that spider-themed monsters work best with his cult, particularly jorogumos, but also ettercaps and werespiders.


Were you looking for monstrous allies/followers or other types of followers besides clerics and rogues? Norgorber has four aspects, each of which might attract various classes:

Father Skinsaw: assassins, anti-paladins, slayers
Blackfingers: assassins, alchemists, investigators
Gray Master: rogues, assassins, bards
Reaper of Reputation: aristocrats, rogues, assassins, investigators, bards, wizards

Thanks James. The jorogumo are too high a level at the moment but I will look at the others. They are also in book 3 so I don’t want to bring them in early and have them repeat

My group have provoked the cult earlier than intended (book 3) but I don’t want to keep sending skinsaw cultists

My players also take the immature approach to Norgorber and make a few letter tweaks (out of character of course). I am keen to make them take him and his followers a little more seriously!

Thanks. Advanced Class levelled versions of these are a strong contender - perhaps with a few more levels than you gave them!

Thanks. This is a good point - i used sanctified slayer inquisitors in the first meeting with skinsaw cultists (they were were very nasty for the PCs). Varying the classes could be an interesting approach

If you want to keep with the spider theme but jorogumos are too powerful, I could see araneas fitting in well. Their shapeshifting and poison would seem to work with Norgorber, especially his sneakier aspects.

Thanks James

I am mainly interested in potential additions to the Skinsaw cult specifically as I am starting Book 4 of Hell's Rebels and since I already used some cultists in Book 3 I would like to diversify some of the remaining cult rather than 18 more!

I will take more of a look at the spidery monsters. Although I did always get less of a spidery vibe from Skinsaw than the other aspects
