Edge of Anarchy

The premise of this adventure assumes that your PCs have some substantial (probably negative) connection to Gaedren Lamm. You should strongly encourage your players to select one of the backgrounds provided at the end of the Player's Guide in order to cement this tie. Converted background benefits and feats from the Player's Guide can be found in the Pathfinder Character Elements document linked to in one of this site's sidebars, and they are reprinted below for convenience:


Addiction (Addicted Friend)
Benefit: You gain training in Streetwise and a +2 bonus on Streetwise checks.

Addiction (Personal Addiction)
Benefit: You gain a +2 bonus on saving throws against poison effects and diseases.

Framed (Family Honor)
Benefit: You gain training in Bluff and a +2 bonus on Bluff checks.

Framed (Dropout)
Benefit: You gain training in Arcana and a +3 bonus on Arcana checks when using the Detect Magic action.

Love Lost (Orphaned)
Benefit: Once per day, reroll a failed saving throw.

Love Lost (Widowed)
Benefit: You gain training in Intimidate and a +2 bonus on Intimidate checks.

Missing Child (Missing Sibling)
Benefit: You gain a +2 bonus to Insight and Streetwise checks.

Missing Child (Missing Son or Daughter)
Benefit: You may reroll any Streetwise check and must use the result of the second roll.

Unhappy Childhood (Tortured)
Benefit: You gain a +2 bonus to saving throws against psychic effects.

Unhappy Childhood (Religious)
Benefit: You gain training in Endurance and a +2 bonus on Endurance checks.

Heroic Tier Feats

Remove the feat Crossbow Mastery. It filled a gap in design that has already been filled by the feat Speed Loader in 4th Edition.

Shingle Runner
Prerequisites: Trained in Acrobatics
Benefit: You gain a +5 bonus on Acrobatics checks made to reduce falling damage. Any time you fall more than 10 feet, you may shift 1 square at the end of the fall as a free action.

Acadamae Graduate
Prerequisites: Con 13, wizard
Benefit: Once per day, when you use a daily attack power with the summoning keyword, you may use your second wind as part of the same action.

Prerequisites: Cha 13
Benefit: You gain a +2 feat bonus to saving throws against charm effects. In addition, once per day, you may draw a card from a Harrow deck you own. At any one point during the rest of that day, after making any d20 roll modified by the ability score associated with the suit of the card you drew, you may gain a +3 bonus to the roll.

Paragon Tier Feat

Sable Company Marine
Prerequisites: 11th level, Mounted Combat
Benefit: Flying mounts you are riding have their fly speed increased by 1. In addition, flying mounts you are riding do not suffer a penalty due to confined spaces, and can make an Athletics check to recover from a crash as a move action instead of a standard action.

Before we can tackle the business of the adventure's progression and encounter conversion, we need to convert a very important part of the campaign's exposition: Harrow.
