Murder’s Mark, Pathfinder 1e Module

Recommended Posts

"Wouldn't be the first time that I've seen a performance sabotaged."  Karl gets a far away look in he eyes as if remembering something.


"Still, none were hurt and things are back on track.  I wouldn't worry about it, other than to just keep a closer eye than normal on things in case someone is out to cause trouble.  You might want to let your boss know about the person who paid you the gold.  Just so that if this wasn't an accident, she can pass the word to be on the look out for more trouble.  In fact if you tell us about who payed you, perhaps we can help keep a look out as well."  he looks around for confirmation from the others.


Karl continues to try and calm down the panotti. Diplomacy (13+7)=20

“It was a tall human with a big red fluffy beard!”  After relaying that I do to the rest of the crew, no one remembers seeing anyone of that description.  They make sure to pass off the info to the boss.


He appreciates your soothing words and calm demeanor.  He is quite consoled.

Karl stand up and dusts himself and his coat off.  He checks it for any signs of major damage and then puts it on.


"Well, that was invigorating!  Well met, I am Karl Ritvason, and I would be proud to call such brave souls as yourselves as friends."


"I am Darkaya Zirvem, a servant to the gods of protection & battle. I apologize for the random touch on the shoulder but seeing you doff your jacket, I figured you needed the extra protection."

As you approach, the panotti raises his head.  He turns his head so his massive ears fall back behind each shoulder.  He sniffles a little.  “Hel...Hello.  You’re so brave!  Thank you for helping with our baby dragon.  I just froze, I’m not brave like you.”  He pauses.


"Think nothing of it, the incident happened in the past. The creature is contained & unharmed. Just watch it a bit better next time." She smiles afterwards.

"we should find someplace private. I would see each of you get's your equal share of our reward, but for reasons I am sure you can understand, do not wish to hand out such coin where others might see"

"Well, we can just head over here behind that tent."


"I agree, who knows who might be watching with ill intent."

You make your way to Two Water Tavern.  It’s busy and popular with locals and visitors alike.  The proprietress Noria Arephion is gentle Human woman and has a welcoming smile.  A few burly regulars seem like they are also bouncers and bodyguards.  She only has one room left, so you all have to pile in.  She has two beds, and arranges for two mattresses to be put on the floor.  For the room and dinner and breakfast she charges 3 GP for the four of you.

Karl secures his belongings in the room and makes himself presentable for dining.  after chatting with his new found friends, he suggests that they all go down and avail themselves of the dinner and try and find out more about what has been going on in town and at the carnival.


"For if there is one thing that flows more freely than ale at a tavern, it's rumors."

You hear a few rumors.


1. Watch your back, friends. Varisians would just as soon gut you in a back alley for sport as smile to your face while picking your pockets.


2. The Town council is going to appoint a new member soon.


3. Sczarni dread lords are interested in our city.


4.  If you are looking for a good time, I can score you some Shiver.


5.  Our Sheriff is one of those half-angels.


6. There have been pirates harassing the river barges.


7. All Varisians are vampire spawn, owing to their taint being mixed up with the Whispering Tyrant.


8.  When the carnival was here last was 2 years ago.  They were much smaller then.

The next morning, as you eat breakfast, you overhear  a few locals gossiping about a murder.  A few moments later, a frantic carnival crew member comes through the inn’s front door, panting and sweaty as if he ran the whole distance.  When he sees you, he smooths himself over and takes a deep breath to regain his composure.  In a thick Varisian accent he says “pardon milords and lady.  My mistress Almara formally requests your presence at her private wagon this morning for an urgent job opportunity.”  He waits around for your answer, hoping to lead you back there personally.

      Here was my entry for the 16th quarterly  Reaper Facebook Contest.  I was honored to receive an honorable mention.  There were dozens of fantastic entries.  
      I wanted to try a white dragon coloration.  I have Deathsleet in my queue, so this is a test run.  His scales are Dragon White.  The ventral surfaces are more of a bone color with Creamy Ivory and Linen White, with Sepia Wash.
      His dagger is a green NMM.  His eyes are gem-like, not lizard pupils.  The skirt completes the “triangle of interest” green color.  I rebased him on a Micro Arts 30mm Sewer base.
      I had a lot of fun with this one.  I wanted to keep him as a rogue, so I chose a dagger and loot bag from his hand choices.  I also painted his armor as leather with some gold NMM.

      Hello everyone, today is a Pathfinder day. I did my best to paint it as faithfully as possible respecting the original artwork colors. This is the metal version 60136, Aglanda the herald of Razmir sculpted by Bobby Jackson. It's also available in Bones plastic under sku: 89040.

      Starting post for the upcoming Starfinder: Attack of Swarm pbp I will be running. I'm mainly using this to get a feel for Starfinder & such as I'm hoping to run a game or 2 at ReaperCon 2021.

      Paizo Inc.
      (Part 1 of 6 Attack of the Swarm Adventure Path)
      (as quoted from the Paizo product page:)
      "Suskillon Needs You!
      As the ever-ravenous threat of the insectile Swarm surges across another system in the Vast, the heroes are part of the defense effort. They must fight back against waves of foes and rescue civilians, including a shirren priest of Hylax whose temple seems to be of particular interest to the invaders. By relying on their wits—and each other—the heroes just might survive the Swarm onslaught."
      Suskillon System
      The Story so far..........
      It has been 6 months to the day, since the Swarm* first touched down on Suskillon in a bloody conflict named the Battle at Stone Sea. After the Swarm punched through the planet’s aerial and orbital defenses, its components landed near the Stone Sea, a large freshwater lake surrounding a dormant volcano. The Fifth Battalion of the Suskillon Defense Force (SDF**) was closest to the site of contact and held the Swarm back long enough for the SDF to mobilize other battalions to the area. Stories of the battle have already reached near-mythical heights, as most members of the Fifth Battalion were killed in glorious, terrible combat.
      Since then, the SDF has fought a losing battle against the Swarm. Though Suskillon is a friendly trading partner with the Pact Worlds, the planet’s government has yet to officially request aid, with many afraid that the Pact Worlds will claim their planet as a protectorate in “payment” for such help. However, that hasn’t stopped volunteers and mercenaries from other systems (including the Pact Worlds and the Veskarium) from journeying to Suskillon to join in the fight against the invasion. The Swarm is relentless, though, and it has already overran and taken nearly half of the planet.
      *The Swarm is a collective menace of sentient insect-like creature bent on expanding it's colonies by devouring anything in it's wake. The Swarm doesn't negotiate with people it just consumes it's host & whatever it's host is on. The Shirren were part of the Swarm, but during "The Gap" they were able to free themselves from it's collective mind & established their own colonies. Unfortunately, The Swarm has the ability to adapt to the challenges conquering it's foes & were able to follow the Shirren & left most of their new colonies in ruins due to the Shirren's connection with the Hylax, a divine entity the Swarm are hellbent on wiping from existence.
      This also led them to come in contact with the Veskarium, the system of the military-like reptilian humanoids. The Swarm was so overwhelming that the Vesk (as their race is called) called in the Pact Worlds (home to many, but notably humans) & formed an alliance to beat back the Swarm. This has only temporarily stopped the Swarm from taking over both their worlds.
      Only time will tell when that may happen........
      ** Suskillon Defense Force (or the SDF for short) is the military force of planet Suskillon. In the beginning it was your standard military but as the war with the Swarm has progressed, the leaders of the SDF have brought it whoever wanted to fight the Swarm. Whether or not these folk due to it for honorable reason, matters not, as the SDF needs bodies to win the war against the Swarm. So far, the war has only gone the way of the Swarm. The Fifth Battalion is the unit, you the PCs are assigned to. Welcome aboard, solider!
      The Present...
      You have answered Suskillon's need for heroes & saviors, whether it was due to you were already in the SDF as career military, a merc, a prisoner whose sentence was to serve or die, or just someone who wanted to help out in any way you can, etc etc. You been enlisted into the SDF & have been asigned to the Fifth Battalion & have been sent to Camp Cavalier, a small military encampment outside the capitol city of Brinnoa. Brinnoa is located on the planet's most populated continent in the southern hemisphere. The commanding officer is Major Jaldamarrak, a Vesk with a impressive military background (feel free to give me, Culture or Profession (soldier) check to learn more about this individual).
      The adventure begins in the middle of "Dead Winter", one of Suskillon's extended, extremely cold weather period. Also, much the surprise to most people, the daily attacks of the Swarm have died off, almost to a point that if not for their previous attacks & destruction, one might think they have decided to retreated & focus on some other system.
      You all begin inside a room outside the commanding unit at Camp Cavalier, awaiting on when you can see the Major.

      Does any one have good colors to go with Asmodeus Red from the Pathfinder line? I remember Anne said that there was something different about it but I can't remember what she said exactly or in what video. I just remember she showed a female bard when she mentioned it. Any help here would be greatly appreciated.

      Here is the big boss of the Bones I Orc Warband.  With all of these Orcs they are shadowed with a purple color.  I added some green freckles/sun spots for a little interest.
      For his shield trophies, I included some skin tones and hair colors that could represent elf, dwarf, human, goblin and undead.  The wood planks and boards on the shield are freehand.  Kavorgh got a little extra love with the bloodstain on the axe.
      WIP here:




      And the group shot.  Enjoy.
