Retribution Collector’s Edition

In the frozen depths of winter, murderous winds mercilessly batter the crumbling Priory of Cymer. Within, trapped by their duty and the heaped snowdrifts that render travel near impossible, the few remaining faithful huddle together and tend the sacred places of their forbears. With the weather worsening, nerves fray and tempers snap as the wind howls its mournful dirge for the forgotten dead of a fallen time. But the worst is yet to come. One of those trapped within holds a murderous grudge that only blood can expunge and as the storm reaches its savage height terrible revenge is wrought amid the frigid halls and faded glories of a bygone age.

Praise for Retribution Collector’s Edition

“You literally have no reason not to get this gem and having it as a print edition made me feel all fuzzy and warm. This has its place on my shelf of honor and is truly a must-own for any PFRPG-DM’s module-library.”

–Endzeitgeist (five stars + seal of approval)

“Having played through this adventure, I can say I enjoyed it thoroughly.”

–Benjamin N (five stars)

‘This is a great module and worth picking up.”

–Paul Q (five stars)

“I could certainly see myself running this or playing this as I think it hits all the right buttons for being a classic adventure that is well designed with opportunities for different types of players to have their moments in the sun, or the snow as the case maybe.”

–Sethvir (five stars)

“Overall, this product was excellent, and I heartily recommend it. Whether you need an adventure on the fly, or you want to flesh out your campaign with a well thought out location and encounters, this adventure will do that and more.”

–Lorathorn (five stars)

“The whole thing hangs together beautifully, a compelling dark tale to play out against rising winds and gusting snow. It’s atmospheric with a real sense of danger, yet should the party prove successful they can bask in a real glow of satisfaction at having removed some evil from the world. You don’t often get THAT at first level!”

–Megan Robertson (five stars)

Praise for Retribution

“A fantasy roleplaying campaign can always use spooky, atmospheric low-level adventures, and RETRIBUTION is a solid, useful foray. It’s “old school” in the best sense of that term: the adventure, its setting, its characters, and its new elements have all been carefully and lovingly detailed and thought through. The result is truly ready-to-use, and its elements lend themselves to easy re-use in an ongoing campaign. Recommended.”

–Ed Greenwood, creator of the Forgotten Realms

 “A gripping gothic yarn. Retribution is one part classic pulp, one part Name of the Rose, and all around a compelling narrative with exciting encounters and absorbing NPCs. It will no doubt leave a lasting impression on every adventurer who dares winter on the Lonely Coast.”

–Stephen Radney-MacFarland

 “I think this the best written PFRPG intro adventure available out there.”

–Darren Ehlers (five stars)

“Retribution ranks among the best first level adventures I’ve ever read. It’s not over the top, it’s personal. And it’s better off for it. Check it out. It’s better than almost any first level adventure I’ve read for PFRPG and its predecessors.”

-Endzeitgeist (five stars plus seal of approval)

 “I was seriously blown away by the richness and depth of this module. Seriously, Creighton is missing his mark by writing RPG modules and should be doing Fantasy Fiction.”

-DrDeth (Amazon Top Reviewer; five stars)

“Bottom Line: One of the best entry level adventures I’ve read in 25+ years. Good mix of role playing and combat that forces the players to think, not just react. Clever and logical use of some classic low level monsters. Strongly recommended.”

-Eric Olson (five stars)

 “Upon receiving this in the post I opened with great trepidation but was incredibly impressed. The quality of the writing as well as the technical detail which the author has paid is superb. Much of the tedious tasks such as travelling times etc are worked out and this leaves oddles of time to deliver the module with the energy and feeling it deserves…This for me has restored faith in publishers and 3rd party material.”

–JahAbs84 (five stars)

 “This is the best 1st Level adventure module I have ever read, period.”

–William M (five stars)

  1. I ran this adventure as the start of a campaign (based out of Raging Swan’s town of Swallowfeld no less) and my players had a blast. The group is a mix of new and veteran players and everyone enjoyed the long roleplaying sprinkled with some investigation followed by a traditional dungeon crawl. A first rate introductory module which reminded me of the Village of Hommlet.

    The one feature I most appreciated was the listing of the environmental conditions and the rules for those condition, as they are located in different parts of the CRB and hard to find when you need them.

    Good job!


    • Thanks very much, Derek, for the kind words. I’m glad you enjoyed Retribution. It was our first product and I’m jolly proud of how it turned out!

    • Thanks, John! I hope you had fun with the module! Did I ever pester you to leave a review? If not, consider yourself pestered!
