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.

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.

      Left home in a hurry for a family emergency. Grandfather having heart trouble so I’m hanging out with him helping out.
       
      I didn’t bring any minis or paint so I found a local game store and picked up a few. I went to hobby lobby and michaels for some brushes and paint. 
       
      The paint was extremely cheap but hey if it doesn’t work out I can do something else. Space for travel is super limited (motorcycle) so I don’t want much to carry. 
       
      I brushed on some foundation white from model color. Since I don’t have any skin tone I had to experiment making it. I am happy with the results. I’m not quite sold on the color for the armor yet.

      In the 5E game I recently started played, one of the characters created a halfling bard.  I had yet to paint Lem from the Kickstarter so he received a quick paint for the tabletop last week.  Of course, that player didn't show up to last weeks game but Lem is ready when needed.  Now that I look at it I see there are a few little bits that I missed but I doubt I go back and touch him up.

      Here's another post.
      Hellakin languished on my shelf of shame for about 5 years.  He was intended as an entry into a forum contest for painting "little people."
      Life got in the way.  I recently decided to finish him, in a little bit of a rushed fashion.
       
      He sat and sat at the basecoat stage.  I struggled with figuring out how to do his cloak black.
      I am not too happy with it.  It reads dark blue, as I'm trying to paint black without cycling up through gray, as you'll see here:
       
       
       
      I'm more pleased with the gold nmm on the knife than the steel.
      But, I tried to really suggest he's in a dark area by the shadowed part of the blade remaining nearly black.
      Here are some more shots of him.
       

       
      I'm pretty pleased with the hair color and face:
       

       
      He's got a very intense stare.
      The eyebrows didn't please me very much.
      The base is a "hollow" round base with a circle of cobblestone patterned sheet styrene from a model railroad supply hobby shop that I painted up to give him a feeling of being in a dungeon.
      If I wanted to spend more time on him, I'd paint his toenails and fiddle more with the knife.  I originally had a thought to try to paint shadows and light on the base to make it seem like he's sneaking up on someone to backstab from the shadows.  I gave up on that ;)
      Overall, he fills a missing niche among my painted figures of an iconic halfling rogue.

      This figure is a great load off my Shelf of Shame.
      I wanted to complete it for my friend's 40th birthday, as he was supposed to come back to town for a surprise party.  I never finished it, since he changed his plans and there was no party.  He and I go back to 7th grade, and have gamed together on-and-off for the better part of 25 years.  I've gone back to complete this figure after about a 3 year hiatus.  He is my first real attempt at an NMM weapon and armor.  The challenge with the sword was the spine of the sword is soft not crisp, so getting a straight line was tough.
       
      I asked my friend what his favorite type of character was to play.  His answer: Sword and Board fighter.
      I wanted the figure to resemble my friend: Very pale Caucasian, very light blond short hair.  Also, I wanted our high school colors to figure into the paint scheme: Green and White.
       
      I also like to find old gems from the Reaper store that need some love and new life breathed into them!  Ashlan definitely fits the bill.
       
      So, I present Ashlan Fellthrush, Heroic Paladin.
       

       
      I had dreams at one point of making the suitable looking parts of the sword and tabard-trim into green gems, but gave up on that to get him DONE!.
       

       
      Part of the reason I gave up on this figure for so long was my failure to realize my ambitious goal to paint a freehand gold NMM device on the back to match the one sculpted on the front.  The back felt like it needed something.  I tried a white dragon for a while, like the shield, but didn't like it.  So I repainted the back and tried this gold device.  It came out "good enough" after about the third try, so I moved on.
       

       
      Overall, I'm very pleased with Ashlan.  In know my friend will enjoy it.  He's triple-sealed for gaming goodness.
      Now, I just have to pack him up for a safe trip to Seattle.
       
      Thanks for reading.
      C&C Welcome.

      I've been wanting to paint these rat swarms since I got my Bones I shipment.
      However, the base was cut into this jagged shape, so I always delayed painting them as I waited on basing them.
      Finally, I decided to base some with a good heapin' helpin' of sand.  The other two got green stuff treatment to try to blend the base that way.
      One was wood planks, and the other was flagstones.
       
      I tried to emphasize fur/hair in the painting.
      I totally "phoned it in" on the tails, noses and claws.
      I really didn't want to over-spend time on these guys.
      Sorry, I realize I didn't give you a good shot of the skull they are swarming over.
       
      C&C Welcomed.
