Pathfinder 1st Edition Pathfinder Society Faction (Silver Crusade)
1 of 61 of 1

Character levels 5-9

Written by Nathan King

Dire need begets great innovation, and Ghalcor, a cleric of Iomedae, created a revolutionary new weapon to fight the demons that poured out of the Worldwound at the end of the First Mendevian Crusade. Unfortunately, the fiends overwhelmed Ghalcor and his assistants before they could arm and trigger the weapon, but complex fail-safes sealed off Ghalcor’s tower and kept the device from falling into abyssal hands. As the Fifth Mendevian Crusade rages on, Ghalcor’s secret weapon could be the factor that turns the tide, so the Pathfinder Society has agreed to find a way past the indiscriminate safeguards to secure the device for the crusaders—a task complicated by their pushing past enemy lines.

Content in “Weapon in the Rift” also contributes directly to the ongoing storyline of the Silver Crusade faction.

Beginner Recommendation: Recommended for those with Pathfinder experience.

Pathfinder 1st Edition Pathfinder Society
2 of 61 of 1

Character level 7

Written by John Compton

A Pathfinder Society Scenario designed for 7th-level pregenerated characters.

Years of political maneuvering, espionage, smuggling, and diplomacy have set the stage for the Aspis Consortium’s most ambitious attack on their Inner Sea rivals: the Pathfinder Society. All that remains are several key preparations that only an elite team of Aspis agents can arrange, and once the fireworks begin, these same agents must strike quickly and mercilessly to secure objectives—some shared and some connected to deeper plots—and escape without the Society being any the wiser.

In this adventure the players portray agents of the Aspis Consortium using 7th-level pregenerated characters. The events in this story also connect to and expand upon those in "Siege of Serpents".

This scenario is only available to be run by a 4 or 5 star GM and counts as an Exclusive/Special towards the 5-star qualification.

Beginner Recommendation: Recommended for those with some pathfinder or D&D experience.

Mythic Battles: Pantheon
0 of 61 of 1

Pregenerated characters.

A century has passes since the Cataclysm, where the Gods of Olympus fell at the end of the Second Titan War. Now the Gods have reawoken, diminished in their power and seeking to reclaim their former divine glory. Great heroes from the past have re-emerged from the Underworld, and new heroes, finding their own fate and forging their own legends, now mingle with their forbears in this new Age of Hope that dawns upon a shattered Greece.
You and your heroic companions have been enlisted by the God, Hades, to aid him in uncovering a gateway into the underworld that has been usurped from him by his wife, Persephone. The difficulty is, a warlord has set up his prospective hegemony over this gate, and rumour has it he has subjugated the legendary Minotaur, freed from the deathly grasp of Tartarus, to enact his will.
It is time to test the bonds of fate, strive for arete and be the heroes the world needs.

Pathfinder 1st Edition Pathfinder Society
4 of 61 of 1

Character levels 1-2

Written by Mike Kimmel

The Aspis Consortium pays well, but few can stand its underhanded tactics for long. One operative fed up with the Consortium's practices has contacted the Pathfinder Society with a tempting offer: assist her in leaving the organization, and she will supply the Society with years of insider intelligence about their longstanding rival. It's up to the PCs to navigate Diobel—a proud town run by cutthroat smugglers—earn the defector's trust, and deal a telling blow to their Aspis foes.

"The Consortium Compact" is an evergreen, replayable scenario designed to help introduce players to the Pathfinder Society, the Isle of Kortos, and one of the Society's longstanding rivals.

Beginner Recommendation: Beginner Friendly.

Character level 8

Written by John Compton

A Pathfinder Society Scenario designed for 8th-level pregenerated characters.

A parasitic faction known as the Korholm Agenda has tried to corrupt the upstanding Aspis Consortium from the inside out, all in the vain pursuit of revenge and profit. Now one of the powerful Aspis Patrons has learned that the Korholm Agenda has siphoned the Consortium’s funding to build a base of operations in Nidal. This shall not stand. He has assembled a team of top agents—including both new faces and veterans of the attack on the Grand Lodge a year ago—to infiltrate the operation and shut it down by any means necessary.

In this adventure the players portray agents of the Aspis Consortium using 8th-level pregenerated characters. Content in "Serpents’ Ire" also ties into a special metaplot element from Pathfinder Society Special #6–98: "Serpents Rise." Players who have completed that special event are encouraged to bring its Chronicle sheet when playing this adventure.

Beginner Recommendation: Recommended for those with some pathfinder or D&D experience.

Character levels 1-5

Written by Brian Duckwitz

When members of the Shoanti Axe Clan saw fire shooting up into the sky over Varisia’s Caliphak Mountains, they rushed to investigate. They found a pair of doors inscribed with runes from ancient Thassilon, along with clear signs that the doors had recently been opened. In recognition of the Axe Clan’s expanding alliances, the Shoanti offered both the Society and a priest of Soralyon from Riddleport the opportunity to explore the ruin and neutralize its dangers. Now that the priest has vanished within the complex, the PCs must uncover the ruin’s history before the Shoanti lose faith in them and take matters into their own hands.

Beginner Recommendation: Beginner Friendly.
