About this project

The Claws of Madness (a Pathfinder adventure module)

€2,017

88

This adventure module successfully Kickstarted last year - We raised over 170% and got many positive feedback from our backers. This Kickstarter brings it to the Pathfinder game system.

 The Claws of Madness is available on DriveThruRPG for the the 5e edition ruleset and is Silver Best Seller book.

What Sinister Tidings Are Afloat?

The Claws of Madness is a standalone adventure carefully designed for a group of 1st-level heroes, including new monsters, magic items, and a thrilling story arc. Edited by Michele Carter (co-editor of the 5th Edition Player’s Handbook), this dungeon crawl combines the best elements of classic adventures with fresh new exciting avenues. The story in this book also provides the perfect base for an epic, long-running campaign suitable for higher-level characters, in which the heroes unravel the dark mystery of the mythical Hand of Narkul . . . 

The Hand of Narkul

For centuries, Aelmor Monastery near the port town of Sestone was a safe haven for scholars, monks, and pilgrims seeking enlightenment, its renowned library home to an enormous collection of ancient manuscripts, tomes, and peculiar writings. After suffering a devastating attack at the hands of a possessed monastery elder, Aelmor fell into ruin, its troubled past forgotten. When villagers start disappearing and turn up horribly mutated days later, fear takes a grip of Sestone. What sinister forces are at work? And to what end? Rumors of a mysterious cursed Hand start to spread...

 Stretch Goals

For every $500 dollars we exceed our goal - we develop a spin-off mini adventure for our backers.

Risks and challenges

This project has very small risks, as the adventure module has already been written, edited, playtested and released last year. The work we are doing is converting the book to be compatible with the Pathfinder system, and release it under the OGL/prd license.

Our team doing the work includes Ric Mohri, an experienced developer who has worked on multiple Pathfinder products.
