Village Backdrop: Arrowhill


Brand: Raging Swan Press

PDF / Pathfinder

A Pathfinder Roleplaying Game GM's Resource by Mike Kimmel

The people of Arrowhill have long appeased the Serpent of Coldrun Woods with offerings and sacrifices so that their hunting could continue. The Serpent is terrifying and cruel, but predictable, and in return for their obedience it protects them from exterior threats. Recently, the Serpent's demands have grown and her punishments have become more cruel. Little do the villagers know Mayor Crad Swayfellow sons imprisoned the Serpent, and he now uses the methods and reputation of the Serpent to control the populace through fear and tradition. Visitors to Arrowhill face a frightened, superstitious community and rumours of a dark, insatiable power dwelling in the woods. If they aid the village, they must confront not only the dangers of the Coldrun Woods, but Mayor Swayfellow's attempts to thwart, and even murder, them.

Village Backdrops are short, richly detailed supplements that each present a single village ready to insert into almost any home campaign. Perfect for use as a waystop on the road to adventure, as an adventure site themselves or as a PC's home, Village Backdrop present the details so the busy GM can focus on crafting exciting, compelling adventures.
