Horror Adventure for Pathfinder 2e?


Pathfinder Second Edition General Discussion


What your thought on something like The Horror Adventure book from Pathfinder 1e, in Pathfinder 2e? I personally think that it could work, I know there 3rd party supplement for it, but with the remaster, certain rule from those supplement might not work.

I would love the return of such a product, or the inclusion of a similar product.

I'd love some more player facing body horror options such as:


Season of Ghost adventure is nearby.

Im using a 3pp for the Blood Kineticist adapted to 2e and I love it for NPCS. I'd much prefer a revision/update of the Horror Material from Paizo directly than say, SPCM.

I don't know what 3pp mean, and I don't know what SPCM is?

My favorite feature of Horror Adventure was the Sanity mechanic, because I like the long term effect it have, and not just in combat.

Malevolence is a horror adventure. I haven't run it yet, but I have read it, and it is very cool. Dark Archive has elements that can be used in horror games, and as mentioned Season of Ghosts will be launching from October to January.


Thank, but I think Dark Archive was more Occult adventure than Horror adventure, those two, while might look familiar to eachother, have completely different feel to eachother, like Occult adventure is like Supernatural, while Horror adventure is like The Evil Dead.

Malevolence is full-on a horror adventure, and has some mechanics similar to the Sanity system.

You might also want to check out the next standalone we did after that, "Night of the Gray Death." That one's about a revolution in Galt, but it's VERY inspired by and uses a lot of themes from Edgar Allen Poe.

Horror Adventures wasn't actually an adventure, right? I think the closest equivalent would be Book of the Dead.

I’d be quite happy to never see a “Sanity” system for PF2.

What do you think make something a horror?

Spooky, scary, the unknown causing dread.

None of which really interact with a "sanity" system.

-Archetypes: Living Vessel to be possessed by Evil, Pactbinder to make a shortsighted deal with Evil, and Sterling Dynamo if you want to chop off your own murderous hand and replace it with a chainsaw.
