Crypt of the Everflame Turn Results 1

Your travel to the Hamlet of Kassen is uneventful. You are easily able to locate the Seven Silvers Inn and meet with Cygar.

See the Hamlet of Kassen tab for a map and more information about the settlement.

You have a few days to explore the villaige and get to know some of the townsfolk if you like.

If not, we can get right to the ceremony.

Crypt of the Everflame GM Turn Post 1

You are contacted by a fellow Pathfinder, Cygar, asking that you travel to the Hamlet of Kassen in Nirmathas. He asks that you participate in a local ritual and record your experience as it might be of interest to other Pathfinders and could prove worthy of mention within a volume of the Pathfinder Chronicles.

Cygar’s letter goes on to explain some history of the ceremony.

In honor of their beloved founder, the townsfolk buried Kassen in the ancient crypt, interring his bones in a place of honor. They placed an eternal flame above Kassen’s final resting place, so that all who visited might find warmth in the wilderness.

Every autumn, a few of the townsfolk make a pilgrimage to the Crypt of the Everflame to light a lantern from the flame and bring it back to town, where it is preserved all winter, a symbol of the town’s resilience. Most years, the town mayor and a group of dignitaries perform this quest. Every few years, however, a handful of younger townsfolk are given the honor of lighting the lantern. Many see this as a passage into adulthood, a taste of adventure before settling down to work and marriage. The quest starts out as a solemn ceremony in town, where the townsfolk gather to wish the adventurers luck, just as it was when Kassen himself left to fight the mercenaries. When the adventurers return a few days later, the town holds a great celebration in their honor. This also marks the final harvest celebration before the long winter.

Cygar states that it has been a few years since a group of youngsters have participated in the ceremony and it will likely be a few more before another group is ready. Cygar has spoken with Mayor Uptal and he has agreed to allow you to act as surrogates and take on this year’s pilgrimage.

If you are interested, you should seek him out at the Seven Silvers Inn in Kassen before 4th of Neth.

Do you accept the invitation?

What's Next?

I think I am leaning toward running Crypt of the Everflame. It will require a bit of modification to the story but nothing major to get you involved. I expect that this adventure will take about a year to play in our PBB format.

If anyone wants to switch their character, now is the time to do so. You will need a 1st or 2nd level PFS character to play. The adventure is designed for characters to level up during the adventure but with PFS play, that is not possible. You will earn enough XP to level after the adventure is complete.

If anyone knows a 6th person that would be interested and relied upon to play, now is the time for them to get onboard.

I would like to get this rolling soon. Chronicles were sent out or will be hand delivered today. Please send me you character updates as soon as you can.
