Pirates and Plunder, Episode 2: Secrets of the Brotherhood (PF2)


Pirates and Plunder, Episode 2: Secrets of the Brotherhood (PF2)
A short tutorial adventure for Pathfinder Second Edition

You've heard about Pathfinder Second Edition, but you're not sure how to get started? This adventure will guide you, the game master, as you jump right into a deadly intrigue.

Your characters have just arrived in the big city when they witness a cold-blooded murder. A dark tavern, a stolen treasure map and a dead man's secret will guide you through the new systems and rules of Pathfinder Second Edition, especially the rules concerning stealth, observation and diplomacy.

Having discovered a wealth of hidden information about Captain Harrigan, an infamous pirate hanged some 60 years ago, your characters will try to navigate the perils of the underworld of the city of Stormhaven in search of the clues they need to complete their mission. Although there is some combat, most of the adventure will involve social interaction and discovering hidden information. You will find detailed explanations of how to handle stealth and observation, pickpocketing and diplomacy as players work to reach their goals.

Although this adventure is intended as the second episode in a series, following Pirates and Plunder, One Night at the Crooked Hand (also available from DrivethruRPG), I have included notes on using it as a stand-alone adventure. It is suitable for 1st or 2nd-level characters.

This adventure should run two or three sessions in length, depending on how much roleplay your players get into. In playtesting, we finished it in two 6-hour sessions.

Oh, you guys ask good questions. Just updated the description to specify "It is suitable for 1st or 2nd-level characters." Although there are some foes who would be challenging for 3rd or 4th-level characters as well.

Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
