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.

      Also to go along with our Reign of Winter campaign.
      This is the BONES Winter Wolf.
      I had the most fun with the eyes.
      Some of the pics came out a little dark, despite 3 lights.
      It must be a camera thing...
       
      C&C Welcome.

      I haven't posted much lately.
      Work and life have been busy.
       
      We have been playing Reign of Winter.
      The GM told me there would be some Snow Goblins.
      I thought these Bones Gremlins look a lot like Pathfinder Goblins, so I gave them a wintry paint scheme and some snowy bases.

      Kevoth-Kul the Black Sovereign. Am I the only person to have painted this? I usually like to take a look at other painted interpretations of minis that I'm considering to paint. I can't find a single one of this guy anywhere. I can't be the only one who likes it.

      I painted this Karzoug, Runelord of Greed for a friend of mine to use as his climactic encounter in his campaign (yes that one). Tried to make him awesome, eventually chose to leave some of the freehand edges out, cause damnnn... Still I am quite pleased with him.

      I'm playing in a World of Darkness campaign and we need a bunch of vampires.
       
      I'm adapting Patrick Keith's 60138: Sheila Heidmarch, Venture Captain to be a vampire, because not all female vampires hang around graveyards in unlikely and suspicious states of undress.
       
      All paints used are Golden Matte Fluid Acrylics. Color mixes are (usually) noted, but not exact ratios.
       
      Questions are welcomed and I will try to answer them. Critiques are appreciated.
       
      She's such a pretty and elegant figure! I left off her short sword and staff and filled in the slight dimples where they were meant to go with a little Golden Molding Paste applied with the point of a bamboo skewer. The stuff shrinks when drying, so I heaped it up a little.
       
      This is the way I usually start miniature figures: Lightly primed with Titanium White, then when that is dry, washing it over with Burnt Umber. Burnt Umber is a dark, transparent pigment that settles into crannies when thinned down and shows the details very well. (I seem to be having a little trouble with it crackling just a bit in some areas, though.) It also gives a nice warm undertone to later paint layers (even though, eh, with a vampire you don't necessarily want "warmth".)
       

       

       
      I like to paint skin first as something of the undermost layer. After I have the skin more or less smooth and correct I paint the features.
       
      I have been painting up vampires with stark white skin because I don't seem to have the knack to make them look undead if there is even a little flesh tone in their skin. Maybe I should paint them violet or something ...
       
      Anyhow, this is almost the only time I ever mix grey from pure black and white, rather than a complex mix of brighter colors. The flatness of tone conveys something wrong with the individual, and the simplicity of color mix is very easy to shade.
       
      I started with a thin wash of pure Titanium White on her face, neck, bust, and hands.

       

       
      Then (close ups for a while now) I laid in the first pale shadows. All greys are mixed from Titanium White and Carbon Black.
       
       
      Darker shadows and some lights.
         
       
      She's rather a mess now, but you can see how the skin shading is beginning to go.
