Pathfinder 2 – Adventures
Doomsday Dawn – The Lost Star
4708 P1 (Level 1)
The premise of this adventure is that the group of Pathfinders have to find a missing item from one of the sponsors of the Varisian lodge.
They are to treat her with respect and not fall fowl of any city laws or draw attention to their actions as members of the Pathfinder society.
This is Part 1 of the Doomsday Dawn storyline. The rest of this may or maynot make it into the campaign, but this adventure was well suited as an introduction to Magnimar as well as the lodge there.
How did I modify it to my TRAP campaign?
This adventure was modified only as starting in Absalom and being brought to Varisia by the two heads of the Pathfinder lodge found there.
Adventure and Purchase Items
All Items will have ID codes to represent when and where you found them. Giving it a unique id means that you can then refer to the item at a later time, write up more world lore, or incorporate it into a future storyline.
- Quest Items – #[module][number] represents and item found in a set adventure.
- Purchase Items – [session number]-[number] this covers items not planned that were claimed in session by players.
After Graduation, and two weeks downtime for a job well done, you were greeted by your new boss Sheila Heidmarch who runs the Varisian branch of the Pathfinder Society. With her husband Canayven, they used the Tien Teleportation Network to move you to their holdings in moments. There you were told to meet with Keleri Deverin and recover her lost item to help benefit the society.

How my players fared
The group that did this was able recover the lost item and return with it to the sponsor and gain +1 prestige with the Pathfinder Society for the completion of an adventure. They returned all the items found and received level three items in return.
One of the characters tried to cleanse the temple rolled a natural 1 getting a new condition I called The Curse of Pharasma, with the effect that the character is Doomed 1 until they have atoned with the church as receive a blessing for his efforts.
Total time to complete
