Review: PFS3-18 God’s Market Gamble
A Pathfinder Society Scenario designed for levels 1–5.
Valuable relics of religious natures have been disappearing on their way into Absalom and the Pathfinder Society stands to lose countless irreplaceable artifacts if the cause isn’t found. Amid the bustling markets of the God’s Market in the shadow of the Starstone Cathedral, the Society sets a plan in motion to ensure the parties responsible for the recent thefts are caught and brought to justice.

Exciting. Dangerous. Sneaky. Those are words that can describe this wonderful scenario. This has a lot of everything in it. The BBEG is pretty tough, and for each of the 3 times I have ran it, the players were able to win, but just barely. They also used completely different tactics. The ambush is fun to run, and wishes there are smarter NPCs in other scenarios.
The other encounters here are not typical. A few different thing happen, which some PCs are completely unable to prepare for. The warehouse is cool. The interviews with NPCs are fun, and lead to great RP opportunities. The BBEG can be deadly.
Take the gamble. Its worth it.
