Monsters The Island has a limited amount of certain monsters — track them. I suspect that the number of monsters is important with regard to XP available on the Island. Log events like monster kills — perhaps 10M, 10D, 10E, 10N for morning, day, evening and night of day This is particularly important for timed events. I was considering also using this calendar to work out when high tide and low tide are. On earth, high and low tide happen twice each day, and the time moves around the clock once a month, so morning high-tide becomes morning low-tide after one week.
The daily routine is: Is the party moving camp, or is the party exploring from a base? Check to set up camp, if necessary.
Failure by 5 worsens the state. If the survival roll is bad and they need more hours of daylight than they have budgeted for, then no camp that night. Disease exposure: This includes a fight at the midday wandering monster encounter.
It should probably also include attempting to bush-bash through jungle at around midday. Odd — I would have thought that the character becomes fatigued, but the penalties for exhaustion are pretty steep.
Note that Jask can prepare Endure Elements. Players, seriously — resist the temptation to click on the DM map.
By some weird combination of mouse-clicks, I managed to extract the terrain layer of the map in the PDF without all the markup. According to the module, the players move 1 mile every 2 hours bush-bashing through jungle, and you have a chance to notice a special feature if you are within half a mile. So my players can move 4 hexes per day-quadrant. The players get a blurry outline of the island, I get a rather more detailed map, and the two have a matching hex grid overlaid.
The players indicate on their map where they are moving, and I compare it to mine to see what they might have stumbled across. The island border, rivers, and cliffs go either along a boundary or through the middle of a hex. The paths go from the center of one hex to the center of another. This should make it as little easier to work out what to do with these terrain features. It means you can get there and get back with one extra hour of travel time. Definitely a drawing of an island.
This is a reasonably common problem in Paizo materials, I have to say: With the pirate treasure thing, I had to piece together that it was 10 ft down to the plug, 40 ft to the water, and then 10 ft down: Those measurements were scattered around the shop. All you can do is tell them out-of-game after the encounter is done. I like handouts. I bought myself a laminator a while ago. The handouts in the campaign materials are printed out and laminated. They have met captain Kinkarian — some nice artwork there worth printing off, too.
Pretty much any picture in the PDF is worth printing and giving to the players at an appropriate time. The alternative is awkwardly showing them the page of the module. Handing out the artwork from the modules is as important as having the right minis to hand.
Sure — you can play without it. But it just lends the session a little zing. This entry was posted on Saturday, July 9th, at 6: You can follow any responses to this entry through the RSS 2. Most of the crew and passengers seemed to be of questionable moral character but none seemed to have an evil nature.
That was until this evening when the tell tale signs started to appear upon Ieana. Geoffry was taught that all who have this ability see evil differently. The darker the mist the more evil the creature is.
What was initially confusing to Geoffry was that not all evil beings had the mist in all of these areas.
His mentor suggested he must be very sensitive and the difference may lie in whether the being is evil by nature mist near their heart , had chose to be evil mist near their forehead or committed evil acts mist near their hands. In the two years since he left the monastery Geoffrey was starting to realize this must be the nature of his ability. Geoffry absently picked at his food while trying not to be rude to Gelick who was telling tales of his adventures with the Pathfinder Society some of them for the second time.
A strange feeling of anxiety and actual fear began to grip Geoffry as the mist forming around the hands, head, and heart of Ieana became nearly pitch black. Attempting to calm his nerves Geoffry drained his cup and took a deep breath before standing. Her knowing eyes caught his just as his legs gave out and the floor came up to meet him turning everything dark. The survivors gathered and tried to figure out what happened and how they made it to the beach safely. The most unusual thing was that most of their personal belongings were also on the beach stacked hurriedly into a pile.
Geoffry found the unusual bird like creature, Taiko, helping comfort and revive the injured. After praying over a departed soul and invoking the name of Iomeade, Geoffry notices the subtle gesture of the bird man as he flashes him the symbol of his god Milani. A woman claiming to have fallen off another ship that was sailing near the island the night before is also on the beach.
The quiet man has never showed any of the indicators of being evil, but Geoffry felt like it was always right there under the surface. In light of the changed nature of Ieana, Geoffry decided it would be best to go with Uzeil when he suggests forming a party to search the wreck of their former vessel. His red shirt was the last thing Geoffry could see of him as he was pulled under by the strong current.
The three remaining men discovered the whereabouts of the first mate and cook, but unfortunately both were dead. The first mate was found huddled in a closet with wounds that appeared to be caused by both weapon and giant crab. Geoffry gets a strong feeling that it was the first mate that managed to get everyone and their belongings to the beach before succumbing to his wounds. Also found is a personal log which sheds more light on the mysterious end of the voyage.
Geoffry silently vows right then that he will see that this creature is destroyed for her evil deeds. Confirmation of just how dangerous the island is comes later that night when the survivors are attacked by pirates long dead, with bleached bones shrouded in ragged cloth. The party manages to destroy the evil creatures, but not before some of the crew are cut down. Their bodies are respectfully blessed before being burned in order to prevent their own return as the walking dead.
