    Pathfinder 2E Skull & Shackles (2E Conversion), solo campaign

    Tsadok was a fun encounter. The tests ended up being pretty easy, especially the first one since Nasha is such a good climber. When it came to the card game this is something that would honestly have been super boring with a group. It mostly involves a single player and I have read that lots of...

    Oh man the locathah matriarch. It’s funny I happen to own the papercraft pdf’s for Skull & Shackles. I kind of wish they still made these since they are great to have for some of the stranger creatures, and to say “This is what this NPC looks like.” So the Locathaan Matriarch miniature still...

    Mancatcher Cove! It’s funny that while I do get sick of doing dungeon after dungeon I do start to miss them. I was looking forward to this dungeon especially since a good portion of it was underwater. I always have wanted to run a completely underwater campaign and this adventure path is as...

    So the encounter with Inkskin was supposed to happen at Tidewater Rock but I knew that the PC’s wouldn’t really spend much time there so I shifted it to happening onboard the Purr. How inkskin finds the boat is...well sorta not explained. At least from my reading of it. There is mention of the...

    It is super stressful especially when we have to have people come over to service things. Honestly at this point I feel like I understand people who are afraid to be around other people better. Ah cracking the rock. Honestly there is part of me that wishes I just had skipped this part of the...

    So it’s been a while! We ended up moving into a new house and have been super busy trying to get everything unpacked. Clipping the Dominator is my favorite song by the way. Just saying. ;) The combat on board the Deathknell was the first time I killed an important named NPC using my ship...

    I was pretty amused that Personal Rain Cloud ended up becoming useful. In my version of Pathfinder Gidras is the inventor of that spell which is why Dolce ended up being excited to meet him. I hadn’t really thought about PCs meeting the inventor of specific spells before though I thought it was...

    Pathfinder 2E Skull & Shackles (2E Conversion), solo campaign

    So pretty much all of this session (or rather two sessions) used material either found at the end of the Skull & Shackles adventures (The Switch of the North encounter) or from the Isles of the Shackles Book (Slipcove). The main noteworthy thing was me messing up my description of Raffles. It...

    Pathfinder 2E Skull & Shackles (2E Conversion), solo campaign

    At the end of each Skull & Shackles adventure there is a section where several different bits of treasure with some lore tidbits about them. No price or stats for any of them just there for the DM. A few of these have come up in the game though this was the first appearance of it. I mostly ran...

    Pathfinder 2E Skull & Shackles (2E Conversion), solo campaign

    So ship combat rules. There are rules for ships in the Gamemastery Guide but I will admit that once I read and understood them I saw that they were...well quite lacking. They were basically rules for the DM to use if the players happen to be onboard a ship or a carriage when combat breaks out...

    Pathfinder 2E Skull & Shackles (2E Conversion), solo campaign

    The temple was an invention of mine. When the party kept the Water Naga alive, I improvised the family and everything else. I wanted to introduce the Ghol-Gan to the party and the Kuru, so the old temple proved to be an excellent place to do so. The cyclops was just a normal cyclops with the...

    Pathfinder 2E Skull & Shackles (2E Conversion), solo campaign

    I had a reason that I had Quinn and Fishguts both be poisoned though I don't honestly remember why at this point. It is kind of funny that it sometimes feels like this game started "so long ago" but it was in May when we started it. I guess it has more to do with us being on book 3 of the...

    Pathfinder 2E Skull & Shackles (2E Conversion), solo campaign

    Yeah I can be mean sometimes. Honestly as far as Mirielle going off by herself that is not something I would do in a normal game. At least not in a game like PF2. Maybe in something like Numenera or Invisible Sun where GM shifts/intrusions are a thing. Honestly I sort of hated that sort of...

    Pathfinder 2E Skull & Shackles (2E Conversion), solo campaign

    So onto the DM's perspective of this section. So they went off the beaten path pretty quickly and I ultimately had them find a spring before they explored the rest of the island. In hindsight that could have ended poorly but it ended up working out alright. This comes down to me often reading...

    Pathfinder 2E Skull & Shackles (2E Conversion), solo campaign

    Yeah as far as as I can tell its the same monster renamed. There are a few like this like Aboleth becomes Alghollthu, Troglodytes become Xulgath and my personal favorite: Derro (D&D) becomes Dero (Pathfinder). I actually made a conversion of the Sahuagin because I derped and didn't realize they...

    Pathfinder 2E Skull & Shackles (2E Conversion), solo campaign

    Well the events of the Bilge assassination attempt are a little bit different than in the module though not too different. The module wants Harrigan to sort of stay away from the events of the players at first which makes sense honestly. Don't want the players to piss off a level 15 captain when...

    Pathfinder 2E Skull & Shackles (2E Conversion), solo campaign

    Hello everyone! I am DM for this and many other solo games over the years. As my wife explained, I thought it would be cool to drop by and explain some stuff "OOC" in effect. Decisions and things I changed from the base adventure along with anything I might have added. Minor change was turning...
