I have just bought this and I really want to run it
It counts as six seperate adventures , you don't need to play in the whole thing. It's a chance to do some good old fashioned kill monsters and take their stuff style dungeon crawling. Each level will take about six plus hours to play split over a couple of sessions and award three xp so there's some fast leveling if you interested in that sort of thing. I am posting from my phone so I will announce the first session on Monday for playing on the 22nd

Depending on the level range, I'd definitely be interested.

Yea I'm Probably a go for this too. What days are you thinking of playing this? My schedule is very tight right now. Have very little spare time.

The wife is at a hen night on the 22 of Match so I plan to do the first one then. The level requirements vary with each dungeon level and go all the way to nine, the first will be one to two

Subteirs
1-2
2-4
3-5
6-8
5-7

Level 4 would need to be filled it or lower would need to be filled in.
Midnight mirror might be a good fit into the area.

Could a roleplayer without previous pathfinder experience (or ruleset) join?
It does sound like fun. :)

Interested, but Friday nights are out for me.

I have played the first level already, and I feel I should warn you all that it's not a good idea to take a full party of brand-new characters. Somebody needs some gold for helpful equipment.

Check out the link in this thread (http://www.fantasygrounds.com/forums/showthread.php?t=17472) for some cheap, useful items.

I only the first level will be run on a Friday, I usually run my games on a mid week night.

I'm interested and could bring along one other if there's room. Friday 22nd is good with me and I'm generally free mid-week assuming I don't get stuck at work :-/

Curiously, what is mid-week? Tues-Thur, depending on the week or do you mean Wed. nights?

all of the above I'm pretty flexible, two small children means that I don't get out much

I'll have to take back my participation, didn't realize it was for Friday, where I already have a game.

is this one of those you can play several times runs like "We be Goblins"?

As the Accursed Halls only (not the other levels of Thornkeep) is a tier 1-2 sanctioned module, you can replay with 1st level characters. From the "replaying scenarios" section of Chapter 5 of the PFS guide:

There is one exception to these rules: All Tier 1 scenarios and Tier 1–2 sanctioned modules are available for unlimited replay with a 1st-level character for credit. The sanctioned modules can also be played with a 2ndlevel character once for credit. You may continue to replay the sanctioned modules with 1st-level characters after playing through them with a 2nd-level character. GMs can receive another Chronicle sheet each time they run one of the Tier 1 scenarios or Tier 1–2 sanctioned modules. No character can ever have two of the same Chronicle—the Chronicle must be applied to a different character each time.
As an aside, "Tier 1 scenarios" are not playing a tier 1-5 scenario with a level 1 PC, they are currently only the 3 first-steps scenarios.

...they are currently only the 3 first-steps scenarios.

I'm not meaning to hijack the thread but I thought you could replay:
First Steps, Part 1: In Service to Lore
First Steps, Part 2: To Delve the Dundeon Deep
First Steps, Part 3: A Vision of Betrayal
Master of the Fallen Fortress 1
We Be Goblins! 1
The Godsmouth Heresy 1-2
Crypt of the Everflame 1-2
Murder's Mark

Not sure about EX and SP Scenarios

You're correct. The difference in the list above is what is a PFS Scenario (First Steps part 1-3) and what is a sanctioned module (all of the others you list above). This is a common misunderstanding - what's a "scenario" and what's a "sanctioned module"??

All PFS Scenarios (those produced specifically for PFS and numbered as such) can only be replayed if they are tier 1 *only*, which is currently just the First Steps scenarios.

That's why I quoted "Tier 1 Scenarios" to highlight them as different from "Tier 1-2 Sanctioned Modules" in the PFS Guide quote, and to ensure people knew that a "tier 1 scenario" is not a sanctioned module and neither is it a normal scenario (tier 1-5, for example) played with a 1st level PC.

Hopefully the above has helped to clarify the various terminologies and not cause more confusion.

I am curious as to what days you plan to run it. Initially you had it set for Tuesdays.

Killian can't do Tuesdays and I want to keep as many of the original players as possible, if players are up for it I will try and introduce the town into the sessions

Midnight mirror might be a good fit into the area.

I have just started reading Midnight Mirror and it is shaping up to be a mighty fine adventure and a good break from 3 levels of dungeon crawling. i am sesriously considering running this one

Sounds good to me.
I thought the game last night went well, we're a bit of a tighter unit now.

You are just doing the easy rooms and encounters! Wait for next week for the tough bits

I probably won't be joining that, especially with Locien, I do have a lvl 3 bard who has been sitting around forever, but the rest are level 1 or 2 i believe

some with good social skills would be useful for the midnight mirror
