Greger's Grotto
5th Edition
Level 1
50 pages
0

Somewhere in your campaign world there is a rugged, isolated coastline. Along that coastline are a series of natural caverns. In those caverns live a small community of pirates and outlaws: Greger’s Grotto. The main feature of Greger’s Grotto is a large underwater cave, where less-than-legal ships can moor out of sight of navies and coastguards. Here they can trade in stolen and illegal wares and stock up on provisions. All for a small fee, of course. The other attraction of Greger’s Grotto is the arena. Like anyone, bandits and thieves desire entertainment. For generations the Greger family has turned a profit by buying slaves and beasts and setting them on one another in the arena. These bloodsports don’t turn a direct profit, but they do encourage the Grotto’s lawless visitors to stay longer or return more frequently than they might otherwise. And more visitors means more fees. The PC are the newest lot of slaves forced to fight in the arena. Can they survive the arena combat, and the harsh prison lifestyle? Will they ultimately be able to escape?

Can the party rescue the survivors and stop an ancient evil before it spreads across the land? Doorway to Darkness is a 3-5 hour adventure for characters of 2nd-3rd level.

Using it as a home base, a party can make forays into the surrounding wilderness, encountering monster and marauder alike.

Beyond the goblins and kobolds lurk dark horrors: cults dedicated to fiendish chaos and a Minotaur's enchanted labyrinth await the unprepared adventurer. But for the hero who is brave, clever, and fortunate in equal and sufficient measure, great treasures and glory await in the Caves of Chaos that lie beyond the Keep on the Borderlands!

A Pathfinder Roleplaying Game adventure for 4th-level characters, this volume of Pathfinder Adventure Path is part 2 of 6 of the Kingmaker Adventure Path, in which the heroes win and defend a small kingdom from threats foreign and domestic. PCs should advance to 7th level by the end of this adventure. The PCs receive a shipment of funds, materials, and colonists from Brevoy and beyond, along with instructions to build a town and attract more pioneers to their nascent country. Having already explored the northern reaches of their new domain, the PCs must now venture into the wilds to bring the rule of law to the south. Wicked fey inhabiting a ruined keep, undead haunting an ancient barrow mound, and others must be defeated to make the region ever more secure. Along the way, the PCs might also have the opportunity to ally themselves with some of the region’s local residents, including the dryad druid Tiressia, her satyr consort Falchos, and a band of gnome explorers called the Narthropple Expedition. In addition, the PCs will be called upon to mediate between two rival factions in the area: a group of independent loggers and the angry fey sorceress who opposes them. As they explore, evidence that a group of trolls is stirring up trouble in the region becomes apparent. Meanwhile, the PCs must deal with events within their burgeoning kingdom—a rabble rouser seeks to oust the PCs from their positions of power, the secretive cult of the hag goddess Gyronna has infiltrated the town, and a werewolf is preying on the townsfolk. All of these events build to the adventure’s twin climaxes: the sudden assault on their capital city by an owlbear of unprecedented size and the expansion of Hargulka’s trolls into the north. Faced with danger on multiple fronts, the PCs must draw upon all of their resources and bravery to become the undisputed rulers of the Greenbelt.
