• FA02: Ferryport Adventures - The Dead Gulch

Welcome to the Dark Return

 
Plagues have ravaged the lands for generations. While the city of Ferryport has been spared the worst, it has still seen its share of death and pestilence. During the worst outbreaks, corpses lined the streets and the people had to find a place to dispose of the bodies. North of the city, they walled up the sewers and filled them like catacombs with the charred bones of the dead. In the southern parts of the city, they dumped corpses by the thousands into the canyon which split the land between South Hollow and Lyncast. This became known as the Dead Gulch.

The adventurers are hired by Tain Northbow, a druid and advisor to Silas Monta, one of the most powerful men in Ferryport. A man of his power and influence has many friends and many enemies. One of Silas’ longtime adversaries among the Guildmasters is Lord Resly. After the treason of Lord Glycyn, former ruler of Ferryport, Resly opposed all motions to move toward a democratic government. Resly believed the city needed a single strong ruler, supported by the Guildmasters, who would become minor lords of the city.

Now, Resly has been missing for over two weeks. The City Guard have investigated and found no trace of Resly, save a rumored visit to a traveling circus. His house sits abandoned and watched over by the Guard. Rumors have started to circulate that Silas may have eliminated his biggest opponent. To clear his name, Silas has hired you to look into the disappearance and report back with anything you find.

Explore the strange and mysterious Todaren Family Circus. Look for clues to explain Resly's disappearance. Explore the cemetery during the unnatural storms that have been increasing in severity. And continue to forge your own legacy within the chronicles of Ferryport.

The Dead Gulch is a Pathfinder Roleplaying Game-compatible role playing adventure designed for 4 to 6 characters of 2nd level. This adventure is part 2 of the Ferryport Adventures: Return of the Fey adventure path, set in the gloomy Dark Return Setting.

The adventure is "node based", which means that players can choose their own path, discovering locales and clues as they follow their own investigations and intuitions. 

 The characters will advance from level 2 to level 4 by the end of the module. The book comes with 7 pre-made characters who all hail from different parts of Atheles.

A Guide to Magic in the Dark Return

The book will also include the Tome of Magic, wherein we describe the various magic groups of Atheles, as well as the play mechanics for our mana-based magic variant.

In this magic system you can memorize your spell allotment for the day, then use mana to cast any assortment of spells from your memorized list.

Since training is difficult to find in Atheles, many magic users start out as a Wylder: an untrained mage with undisciplined abilities.

We also provide a list of all Pathfinder core spells that are compatible with the Dark Return, as well as Atheles-specific spells with descriptions.

A 5E conversion kit is also available.


 
The adventure comes with 7 pre-made player characters, so players can jump right into the adventure.
