The scenario begins with the PCs ordered by Venture-
Captain Norden Balentiir to travel to a remote outpost
in the Hold of Belkzen known as Skull Hill. The PCs are
sent to find two things: the whereabouts of a Pathfinder
delver named Heralt who was last seen there and has
not been heard from since, and the truth or falsehood
of a claim in an old Pathfinder Chronicle that describes
a hidden tomb beneath Skull Hill—a tomb that’s said
to hold the body of a famous Osirian sorceress and her
powerful magic ring.
The PCs spend a month aboard a ship that takes
them across the Inner Sea, up the Sellen River, across
stormy Lake Encarthan, up the Path, and f inally to
Vigil, the walled capital of Lastwall. From there, they
travel overland to the hidden valley in which Skull
Hill is said to rest. Arriving there, they f ind Skull Hill
destroyed, clearly by an orcish assault. Though all of
the Chelish citizens that resided there are dead, the PCs
f ind orcs twisted into strange skeletal creatures as well
as terrif ied orc survivors who attack the PCs on sight,
sure that the strangers are responsible for the events
that befell Skull Hill.
The PCs then have two choices: they can either
investigate the timber tower atop the fort’s motte, where
they’ll find an alien orc sorcerer named Krug who can
either be a terrible foe or a helpful ally, as well as the
corpse of Heralt, or they can investigate the caverns
beneath Skull Hill, where they’ll find a hideous orcshaped
moonflower and the final resting place of Akila,
Zuberi’s sorceress concubine, and the source of the evil
magics that turned the orcs of Skull Hill into undead
monsters.
