    About the adventure

    In the land of the undead, the struggle for power is a complex and maddening game that you can't escape from - not even the grave is a release. You are determined to not wind up as pawns for someone else's agenda, but as players in your own right. You will become Blood Lords, the movers and shakers in the kingdom of Geb. And one day, perhaps you will be so lucky as to serve directly at the behest of the ghost lord himself. Blood Lords is a Pathfinder 2e Adventure Path about playing unscrupulous and politically-minded indviduals wading into the complex schemes and hierarchy of Geb. There's plots afoot to destabilize the nation, but in that chaos lies opportunity. Prepare to battle some wild undead creatures, clash wits against age-old manipulators, and unleash some schemes of your own.

    Additional Details

    How to prepare

    Players should read up on the player's guide as well as the basics of the Pathfinder 2e ruleset, as well as acquire a Discord account and working microphone.

    What I provide

    I will bring the Blood Lords AP, the Foundry virtual tabletop complete with premium modules, thousands of hours of RPG experience and a fine-tuned sense for dramatic storytelling.

    Gameplay details

    CW: Blood Lords is a pretty grim adventure path, with content that focuses on topics such as suicide, abusive relationships, the death of children and the prejudices that exist within Geb as a nation. Characters should come prepared to deal with such issues, though there are moments of levity as well. You are not expected to be playing good people, and part of the AP is your character's eventual complicity in allowing this monstrous land to prosper. X-Cards and an extensive Lines & Veils discussion will be held beforehand to make sure players are safe. In this module, players enter into the role of political troubleshooters in Geb. They will begin their careers as servants of another authority and be tasked with going on missions and uncovering mysteries on behalf of their patron. Eventually they will have the chance to ascend the Blood Lords hierarchy, but there is always the presence of a superior of some kind that must be answered to. Players will spend equal amounts of time investigating plots and dungeon-crawling through undead-haunted ruins as they will roleplaying with sinister forces and self-directing their own evil schemes.
