Pathfinder: From Shore to Sea

Recommended Posts



Pathfinder Module by Paizo

Level 6

Author: Brandon Hodge



Valen Faldar, Aasimar oracle - Nightyknight

Ronn, Swann's Son, Half-orc barbarian - Marvin

Eligos Cairn, Tiefling sorceror - Styates

Halbjorn Einarsson, Dwarf ranger - Qwyksilver

"Zazakan, gnome rogue" - ShadowRaven




The adventure begins on the western coast of the nation of Cheliax, specifically near the small coastal town of Blackcove & the Hellmouth Gulf. Hellmouth Gulf is a large bay on Cheliax's western coast on the Arcadian Ocean. It runs from Cape Kraken in the south to the Sallow Coast in the north. The islands of Thuryan & Bog Rock lie off of the coastline.Blackcove is a small isolated fishing village. It keeps to itself & if not for maps showing where it is, it would probably be forgotten. Dark sand & sharp rocks cover most of the bay's beaches, & the water often carries with it a sulfurous smell. Most travelers avoid the waters of Hellmouth Gulf, as the coastline is known for sharp rocks that lurks just below the waterline, silently waiting to destroy a ship's hull. Fortunately for land travellers a small road runs parallel to the gulf. It is believe the coastline was created by the cataclysmic events of Earthfall in -5293 AR


The weather is typical for a coastal setting in Rova (September). The winds are howling, blowing up the dark sand on the ground & into the air. A storm is brewing in the bay & it's heading your way. A low fog hangs along the shore, refusing to release its grip in the pervasive gloom of an overcast morning. The surf crashes against nearby cliffs & the cold wind carries a spray of fine mist.


Suddenly shouts of pain echo in the air & the source of these shouts are a fisherman in a old rowboat. He wield a broken oar against a enormous crab! The man struggles to reach the rocks & the safety of a small inlet nearby. If the party doesn't intervene, the crab will probably win.

Eligos releases his spear from the straps holding it up his back a swiftly trots towards the beleaguered fisherman. He bellows a war-cry as he gets closer in order to draw the crabs attention away from it's prey.

"Crab legs for everyone!!!!" came Zazakan's own 'battle cry' as he unslung and his crossbow "I hope there's plenty of butter...oh and sage maybe a bit of thyme"

As the fog lifts you see the man in the boat more clearly now. The party can discern he is about 60 feet away. Between him & the party is the following terrain:


A 30 foot wide stretch of sand beach that breaks up into a 20 foot wide zone of hazardous rocks (dense rubble).


The boat is floating 10 feet from a termination of this rock outcropping.


While the party doesn't know the depth of the water for information/game info it's 10 feet in depth.


The man finally sees the party & he struggles to reach down into the boat & throw a rope onto the land but as he does the giant crab gets a claw in & knocks the man to the ground. Your not sure how much longer he has.


Everyone rolls initiative!

OOC Eligos' Initiative Roll 4+3=7 (ah, the d20 likes me as much as usual) edited to reflect the plus 3 that I forgot that I have. Take that Mr. Crabbypants!

OOC (if I use my water walk ability do I bypass the difficult terrain?)

It'll work. It's normal terrain for you.

First off I apologize for the lengthy delay on this one. As I said in anther gaming post on here, really haven't been a game mood the last few days & it has affected my pbp posting here. I'm on vacation once I clock off from work in the morning so I'll be up for all of my games. I'm trying something different for this one, thanks to really no combat maps in the module. I'm drawing them up on either gaming paper or flip maps & using minis, like we were at the table.


I'll have everything done up & posted tomorrow morning or in the afternoon. I  do want this done in the morning so I'll try my best to get it done.


Also the crab got a 12 on the Init check.



Zazakan your first once the map is up.

      A small group of Goblins to use as opponents in Sellsword & Spellslingers or any other game.

      Well, in case you haven't noticed, I'm on a bit of a goblin streak. Those pyros were fun, but now it's the Pathfinder Goblin Warriors!
      As I did previously, I took a picture of them out in the backyard, just to see how they'd look in as realistic of an environment as it's gonna get, another in my little "Mini pictures area" (Spoiler: It's literally just my desk with a piece of white paper behind it. Sorry to ruin the magic! ), and lastly one of my favorite goblin. Any constructive criticism is welcome!
      Sidenote: I'm still not confident enough to try out eyes. I'll get to that eventually.

      The Cleric in my D&D group leveled up and acquired the Spiritual Guardian skill. He needed a model to represent his Guardian. Honaire looks so cool, but he didn't have a shield. I found one in my bits box, and painted the symbol of his chosen Deity, Chauntea. I loved painting this because the simple palette left more room to just relax and enjoy the work.

      I don't actually have a "Shelf of Shame" of half-finished miniatures like some painters do, but if I did, this figure could have been on it.
      I sculpted Ulf Gormundr for Reaper's licensed Pathfinder line in late 2012.  Ulf is a character in the "Jade Regent" Adventure Path. 
      Although I have painted almost every one of the figures I've sculpted, I neglected to paint Ulf and a few others, mostly from 2012-2014.  Probably it was because Martin Jones was working as Reaper's staff painter and giving them good paint jobs for the gallery as soon as each figure was released.
      Several years ago, I prepped this metal casting of Ulf but then put it aside.  I removed the moldlines, patched a little pit in the handaxe, clipped away and bent the wolf-pelt leg (which is attached to pommel of the sword in the original casting) to make the overall pose a little more dynamic, and twisted his sword slightly out-of-plane for the same reason.
      Despite the sheltering-in-place over the past eight weeks, I haven't painted or sculpted much (er... anything).  My painting area had gotten even dustier than usual.  I resolved to paint something this week.
      I poked around my painting area, found the prepped-but-unpainted Ulf, and spent a few late-night sessions painting him.
      The color scheme is the "official" one -- from the portrait by Wayne Reynolds on the cover of Adventure Path #51, plus the shield design by another artist in the interior of AP #50 (I don't know who, but there are several artists listed in the credits and I could rule out a few; does anyone out there know?). 
      The figure has some complicated layering of clothing and armor and gear (but I actually simplified Wayne Reynolds's design a bit for the miniature).  I made it even more fiddly with freehand textures.
      For the base, I glued the figure to a plastic base, sculpted a layer of putty over the top (including his last footprint behind him), painted it blue and white to look like snow, and glued on a "Winter Tuft" grass product.  I cut the smallest tuft into 3 sub-tufts because I didn't want to hide his legs behind a big clump of grass, especially in the front view.

      Here is Zadim, Iconic Slayer from the Pathfinder Iconics stretch goal to the core set. He was sculpted by Bobby Jackson and is also available in metal sku 60179. I kept pretty well to the Wayne Reynolds artwork for the colour scheme.
