Our most prized adventure idea, 100+ pages of survival-horror goodness packed into a sandbox style adventure for 5th level characters.

The Bleeding Hollow is a survival-horror themed sandbox style adventure for the Pathfinder RPG by Paizo.  It will contain over 100 pages of adrenaline pumping excitement for up to 6 players of 4th to 6th levels.  

In this adventure, the players are drawn to the small wilderness town of Westden Falls to clear the surrounding environs of a particularly nasty group of harpies.  Of course, nothing is as easy as it looks and the players soon find themselves embroiled in a plot between two ancient enemies. 

Everyone becomes collateral damage, and the players must use every ounce of wit, survival instinct and tactics they possess to simply survive -- let alone helping those in need...  This is not an adventure for the faint of heart, or the foolishly good.  Hard moral choices will have to be made that will make your players sweat.

The adventure is written to follow the players, and not lead them.  The choices they make will have great significance and possibly repercussions as the events unfold and the clock ticks down...  Truly this is a fantastic sandbox style adventure.

The adventure is designed to scale for parties with more or less players, and even higher levels.  All the rules and game material is hyperlinked to the award winning d20pfsrd.com as well.  Everything you need to run the game is at your fingertips.

The stunningly foreboding cover art is by Michael Fall.  Our gruesome and frightening interior artwork is by Jason Lenox, the illustrator of 'Through the Eyes of Grizelda' and the upcoming gamer fan film 'Zero Charisma.'

This project will have several tiers as well, going beyond the basic funding if possible, for extra awesome-sauce.

FAQ

  • Sadly no. At this time, the adventure is a backer-only adventure primer that leads up to 'The Bleeding Hollow' adventure. The pdf will be available to every backer that has pledged at least $15. At some point in the future, we may decide to publish it in print.

  • Unfortunately, the plot is very *SPOILER*-ish. There is a lot of location and event-based exploration and some investigation as the plot unfolds. The thing to remember here is that this adventure is player-driven. Once the apex of the adventure happens, the players will be allowed to determine their own course of actions entirely. They formulate their plans on how to succeed (and survive). Many groups will play through it with very different results and outcomes.

  • Once the project ends we will share the full plot with the Patrons, allowing them to add their input and ideas.

    Last updated:
  • We don't plan on releasing Hero Lab files with this adventure directly. However, I'd say there is a strong chance that we release a support pack after the fact that is free to the public.
