Merchant vessels have been disappearing on the river west of Ferryport. There are rumors of a river pirate, but when the adventurers investigate they will find far more behind the disappearances than the Guildmasters of Ferryport could ever have imagined. Deep within the Miragol Swamps, in a place of great power, lies a long forgotten tower where ancient secrets are being unearthed by a treacherous former lord of Ferryport. Under his command are foul creatures remembered only in ancient legends and folktales. Will the heroes uncover his plot in time to save the region from war?


The Crossing is a Pathfinder Roleplaying Game-compatible adventure for 4-6 characters of 3rd to 4th level who will advance an average of 2 levels upon completing this module. This adventure is the third part of the Ferryport Adventures, Return of the Fey adventure path. It is set in the Dark Return (formerly the World of Uteria), which was introduced in The Elves of Uteria, a Dark Return sourcebook created by the Sagaborn team and published by Lone Wanderer Entertainment.

This module can be played as a stand-alone adventure; however, the best playing experience would be to have the adventurers play through FA01 and FA02 prior to starting FA03. Though intended to be set in the Dark Return setting, this adventure can be easily adapted to fit in any fantasy RPG setting and contains a wealth of reference material usable in any campaign. It includes maps of the cities of Ferryport, Taulon, and First Hall; a scale map of a merchant ship; a map of The First Inn; and a multi-level map of an ancient mage tower. The map of Ferryport has over 700 numbered locations, with over 40 locations identified by name and description.

The heroes began their adventure in Dark Return as 1st level adventurers, where they battled The Goblins of Kaelnor Forest. Then, in The Dead Gulch, they traveled to the city of Ferryport, where they found the darkness at the heart of the Todaren Family Circus and defeated an extra-planar creature, making new allies and enemies. Now, under the guidance of Tain, a powerful druid, the adventurers must carry on their journey as the fey invasion into the lands of Atheles* continues.

*Atheles is the continent on which Ferryport resides. Uteria is the elven name for the world.
