Mines of Moria-esque Adventure?


1 person marked this as a favorite.

Anyone know of any Pathfinder adventures that have a similar feel to the Mines of Moria section of LOTR?

Something that explores underground ruins and has a lot of history to it and mysterious reasons for being abandoned or things like that?

The ongoing Pallid series for Pathfinder Society scratches this itch, I believe, down to it being dwarven ruins.

The 1st edition module Down the Blighted Path checks a lot of those boxes: dwarvern undercity, ancient family curse, underdark exploration (a journey to an ancient abandoned dwarvern city or forge, if I am remembering correctly?). It always struck me as a good adventure, and I regret I never got a chance to run it. It would also be perfect for an all/mostly dwarvern party. Should be easy enough to convert to 2e if that's your system.

Depending on the level range you need, part four of Age of Ashes (Fires of the Haunted City) may serve, as that is the one set in a dwarven city next to the ruins of a large dwarven city.

If you don't mind updating from ancient editions, you might try drivethrurpg for DL4 Dragons of Desolation from AD&D 1e. (I think the Dragonlance Classics Volume 1 is 2nd edition AD&D, but possibly abridged.) They may not be as off-the-shelf ready, as I think they might have used geomorphs and expected the GM to figure things out.
