From Sea to Shore (level 6 Pathfinder)

Recommended Posts

Debated on this one as I'm GMing 2 pbp already & I'm in even more then that but with ReaperCon now over a year away I want to hone my GM skills on a higher level adventure. I'm running Hungry are the Dead next year for ReaperCon. Appropriate for the theme & time for the 2016 edition. Also I've never ran just a module. I've only ran Adventure Paths & such. Hungry is around the same level as this one, thou I may up it one level.


As quoted from Paizo's page for the module:


From Sea to Shore


"An aquatic dungeon adventure for 6th-level Pathfinder Roleplaying Game characters.


They Come from Beneath the Sea!


The deep waters of the Hellmouth Gulf have long concealed ancient mysteries, both wondrous and terrible. But these secrets have been submerged for too long, and the remote coastal village of Blackcove has accidentally awoken a slumbering horror from a bygone age. Strange creatures now venture from beneath the waves to steal townsfolk away in the dark of night.

Can the PCs discover the fate of Blackcove’s lost villagers? What secrets still lie hidden on the mysterious, ruined island just offshore, and what now lurks in the flooded temples beneath the isle? And what horrific fate lies in store for those unfortunate souls who fall prey to the island's eldritch influence?


From Shore to Sea is an adventure for 6th-level characters, written for the Pathfinder Roleplaying Game and compatible with the 3.5 edition of the world’s oldest RPG, and produced in collaboration with the patrons of Open Design. Inside you’ll find villagers slowly succumbing to the ancestral taint in their blood, tentacled abominations from the deep, debased fish-men, ancient Azlanti technology, and a secret stretching back millennia to the legendary empire of Azlant itself.


This adventure is set along the mysterious Hellmouth Gulf coast in the diabolical empire of Cheliax in the Pathfinder Chronicles campaign setting, but can be easily adapted for any game world.


Written by Brandon Hodge"


Since this one was written before allot of the current Pathfinder books were written I think I'll just go with the following books for character creation:


Looking for 4 or 5 players


Books Used: Core Rulebook & Advanced Players & Ultimate Magic

Races: Core & Aasimar, Tiefling

Alignment: No Evil

Traits: 2

Starting level 6!

Stats: 20 pt buy

Build your characters for 6th level. We'll work on equipment once you've made the character, more then likely you'll get a +1 weapon & +1 armor & other support items.



While I want this to closer to Core I will allow rules from Advanced Player's Book as well.


Post here for character ideas!!


Looking forward to this one.

Both are welcomed! Feel free to make characters


Traits, just the 2. If you want a Drawback to gain a extra one, feel free.




& no this one came out before Traits was established so no setting ones.

Cool idea, I'd been thinking about feeling out interest in running smaller modules (though I'd actually like to try something with roll20 or something similar, as modules seem so much more doable for that). I have this one sitting on the shelf, haven't read it yet, and think it sounds fun. I'd be interested, but I've got ~3 games more or less going here already, though, so I'd ask to be last on the list, I guess.

While it sounds interesting, I'm just in too many games right now (plus DM-ing one as well).


Good luck to all!


Totally understand. Heck I had to convince myself to put this one but as this is my only outlet for Pathfinder gaming I figured I'd better put something up so I'm use to level 5-7. I ran a Society game around this level at RCon a couple years ago (I think it was one you attended) & I was kinda lost when it came to some of stuff. Figured I'd iron out the bugs here first. I actually wanted to run a D&D5 but in the end, Pathfinder won out due to the online resources & such.


I forgot to add the # of players I wanted & right now all who has posted has a spot if they want in.






Dilverish (posted but not in)


I can go with 5 but 4 is all I need.

Great! So, I will have to convert Eligos (Tiefling Sorcerer) from our Forgotten Realms game to Pathfinder and level him up a bit. Shouldn't be too difficult.

Feel free to use archetypes.


I thought of using aquatic races but the water breathing part I felt was a bit of a power turn for this one.




If I don't get someone new over the weekend, you can have the 5th spot.

The base version of the book comprises a compilation of Legendary Games' full line of Pirate-Plug-Ins for Pathfinder and 5E.
      You'll find FIVE complete adventures ranging from 4th level to 14th level, including the smuggling run gone wrong in Spices and Flesh, the mad captain's hidden harbor in Tarin's Crown, the fast-paced high-seas heist of Raid on the Emperor's Hand, the seething rage of an ancient mystic secret of the seas in Scourge of the Steaming Isle, and an all-out assault on the stronghold of the pirate king in Fort Scurvy!  Dozens of maritime magical items in Treasury of the Fleet, including personal items like the hurricane harpoon and sea lord's tricorne as well as magic items for your ship. A selection of sinister sea monsters in an ever-growing bestiary of the briny blue!  A Pirate Codex of 30 nautical stock NPCs from 1st to 16th level, ready to drop into any encounter at a moment's notice. A pair of fully developed ship crews to use as allies or adversaries in Cutthroats and Crew.

With your support, this book easily could pass 300 pages and beyond!
      Plus, we'll have a Pirates and Plunder chapter where YOU have the chance to bring a whole pirate world to life with characters and pirate captains and crews of your own, even designing a personal pirate flag, figurehead, or even a treasure map!

      I finally finished by Giant Rats Dozen from Bones I.
      I tried to give them fur texture.  The texture from the cast was too light for drybrushing, so it's essentially free hand.
      The gray rats have some red and green glazed into the shadows to give them a little diseased feel.
      I spent WAY too much time painting these...
      Mold lines on the actual rat (as opposed to the base) were too tricky to try to get rid of, especially in light of the subject matter.  They’re rats.  A lot of them.

      C&C Welcome.

      So this started to come up in a KS discussion so I thought I would just go ahead and start the topic to discuss it.  
      I'm really not sure how I feel about it.  I'm all for fixing some balance issues and other things, but I'm worried they are going to make it too video game like and more like 4E..

      Here is my rendition of Kevoth-Kul, the Black Sovereign of Numeria.
      I sculpted this figure last year (2017) and painted him over the last month (Feb 2018). 
      I started painting him at Paint Club in Denver, when I was visiting Gene Van Horne and Michael Proctor for the weekend.  I met @Cyradis, among others.
      Numeria is the Pathfinder nation that blends fantasy barbarians with sci-fi.  A spaceship from another galaxy crashed there long ago, and people have been plundering the tech-wreckage.
      Kevoth-Kul is the nominal ruler of Numeria, but someone else is pulling his strings.
      His goblet is full of delicious spaceship juice!  Mmm, mmm.  A full day's supply of Vitamin X!  Oops, he spilled a few drops.
      His consort is Kul-Inkit: link to her Forum thread.
      Art for the Pathfinder Adventure Path book: link to cover at Paizo website.
      (Any resemblance to famous barbarians of Cimmeria is ... well ... probably well-intentioned homage on the part of Paizo Publishing and/or artist Wayne Reynolds.)
      Anyway ... the photos:

      I had painted some small "transparent" potion-bottles but not an item like this before.  I paid attention to how Angela Imrie and other painters made solid miniatures look clear.
      The effect works best from these 2 photo angles, because you can convince yourself that you are seeing orange vapor through the glass goblet, though it is actually painted on the surface.  It doesn't work as well from the side views.
