About the adventure

War! An army conquers your hometown and sends you fleeing for your life. Refugees turn into soldiers, soldiers turn into leaders, and leaders turn into heroes. Take back your homeland, build a militia, and bring the fight to the Legion! "Ironfang Invasion" is a published series of adventures for Pathfinder 1st Edition, adapted here for 2nd Edition. Classic fantasy tropes are in full force here, in a deliberate hearkening back to the origins of roleplaying games. This is a story about war, with all of its horror and slow, creeping dread. Yet there are also moments of hope, heroism, and true camaraderie. Let's craft a story about heroes beating up bad guys. Let's also craft a story about a community under stress and learning to work together to survive.

Additional Details

How to prepare

Please ensure you have a working microphone, stable Internet connection, and Discord account. You can download the Pathbuilder app and create your character ahead of time, but that is not necessary. The actual game will be run using the Foundry virtual tabletop, no experience with it is required.

What I provide

I will bring the Foundry virtual tabletop, battle maps for use ingame, and safety tools to help all players feel comfortable at the table.

Gameplay details

While we won't be following the published adventure word for exact word, depending on player interests, we'll be following its general scheme in terms of pacing. There are moments of tense, cinematic set-pieces interspersed throughout a more sandbox setting focused on survival and tactical planning. I won't be asking you to handle the minutiae of organizing a military group, as we're going to be more focused on the high-level story ramifications of your decisions. Do we attempt a supply run while Legion scouts are in the area? Can we risk rescuing hostages from an enemy camp? Is this third party a group we can ally with or expect betrayal from? I admit freely to having a greater interest in roleplaying than any other aspect of the game. Expect to meet fleshed-out NPCs, mysteries that hearken back to personal backstories, and situations meant to put the player characters into the spotlight. Combat will be frequent throughout the campaign, but rather than dozens of individual encounters, expect instead to have one or two big fights in a session.
