Hook Mountain Massacre Update Comes to Pathfinder Adventures28 May 2016 6
Last week we heard a rumor that the next big update for the outstanding Pathfinder Adventures would be landing early this week. The days came and went with no update to be found. As darkness was descending on Friday and still no action on the App Store, it was looking like the promised update wouldn't be in our hands until after the long holiday weekend. On a whim we gave the App Store one last look after dinner last night and, what did we find, but the 1.0.3 update waiting to be downloaded. It's going to be a good weekend.
The biggest addition in the 1.0.3 patch is the next adventure deck in the Rise of the Runelords campaign, The Hook Mountain Massacre. I've been stuck with three different parties at the end of The Skinsaw Murders chapter, so this is huge. Having played the first scenario a few times now (and losing each time...this scenario is HARD) it's a blast to see what's unlocked with the more advanced deck. +2 weapons, more powerful spells, and magic armors with unique properties now pop up, making those failed boon rolls really pack a punch. The reward for finishing the entire adventure is big, too. You can specialize your characters unlocking a bevy of new powers and feats.
On top of that, there's been a slew of bug fixes and tweaks that continue to polish Pathfinder into a true gem.
Haven't picked up Pathfinder Adventures yet? You should. It is, by far, the best tabletop port of the year so far. Also, it's free to try, so you can give it a go without risking a penny.
