From Sea to Shore (level 6 Pathfinder)

117 posts in this topic

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.

I'd be game.  Are we using traits?  How many?  Are there module specific ones?

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.

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

 

Good luck to all!

I'm interested. I might have to resurrect an old Tiefling friend.

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.

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.

Are we to be playing aquatic races?

Never mind.

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.

let me know how recruitment goes, if there is need for a warm body to fill a slot, I can probably manage another PC.

I think I may make a Ranger with the Guide Archetype.

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.

      Since many games have stalled waiting on one player, do the "regulars" have any interest in Rise of the Runelords?
       
      I have read through 80% of it.
      I'd be OK if you've played some of part I, but not read it.
       
      If there is interest for 4 players, I'll put up character creation rules.

      And here is 60067, Nyrissa.  At long last.
       

       

       

       

       

       
      The base is from Micro Arts Studio.  There's a WIP thread.
       
      I was trying to follow the reference art for this important Kingmaker NPC fairly closely.  It turned out okay, although I just this second realized that her feet are supposed to be orange like her hands.  Blast.  Well, I don't think they're getting fixed now, because I am so done with this mini.  The gradients.  THE GRADIENTS.  DEAR GOD, THE GRADIENTS!
       
      It turned out okay, but I think this takes my personal award for Most Annoying Mini.  It just felt like a slog to get through it.

      There I was the hobby store, I had the bones version in my hand when I ran across the metal Pathfinder version, I opted for metal. Still working out my NMM, planning on some color glazing before it's done. I also decided that this dude gets an elaborate base. I don't play with my figs, so they will all be getting the advanced base treatment. I also decided to play with green stuff for the first time. I only have pics of the helmet mods right now, but there's more (next post).
       

       Thank's for droppin in and checkin this out, what do you think?

      Painted up this guy a while ago and finally getting the photos up. Tried to paint him like the official art. Thanks for reading!

      I'm working on 60067 Nyrissa.  She's a major NPC in the Kingmaker adventure path from Paizo.  I'm trying to follow the reference art from the cover of the AP pretty closely, though I've checked other threads on the forums for inspiration too.
       
      So far I've got a base:
       

       

       
      The base is from Micro Arts Studio.  I gouged a slot in it for the tab at the base of her wings.  It's coming along okay, but it's awfully muted.  It needs more contrast -- particularly brighter highlights.
       
      I've base coated her wings.
       

       

       
      The wings are 3:3:1 Pine Green/Linen White/Pale Saffron.  The vines are in Formula P3 Wurm Green, and the interior petals are your basic Fire Orange.
       
      It doesn't come through in the photography very well, but in person the blue in the main wings is a LOT more noticeable.  I need to push it more towards the yellow end of the spectrum -- I want them to be the pale, nearly yellow green of fresh leaf growth, before it's had time to mature and darken.  I don't quite know what I'm going to do about that.  I don't really have any pale green paints -- I generally like dark greens, and have a wide selection of those.  I may need to mix something custom.
       
      The interior petals are off to a good start, but need to shift red in the deepest parts, and yellow at the edges.  I'm less worried about those.
       
      I haven't even primed her body yet.  I'm not quite sure how to handle it, frankly.  It's a lovely sculpt, but difficult to work with.  She has a little nubbin between her shoulder blades that fits into the hole you can see in her wings up above, leaving her hovering mid-air.  Literally every other part of the mini needs to be painted -- there's no place to hold the part while I'm working.  Ordinarily I stick the figures to bottle caps with poster putty (as with the base, above), and I just got that fancy Rathcore mini holder thing that I'm using for her wings.  But neither of those will work, because any part of the mini I stick in putty isn't available for painting, and if I stick the nubbin into the cork, that leaves her back inaccessible.  Plus I worry that the pressure of the cork might deform the nubbin and cause it not to fit its matching hole properly.
       
      So I may need to paint her body in two different phases, first her torso/arms/head, and then her legs.  I'll take notes on painting procedures as I go so I can match them on the second half.
