The Curse of Ipsahan Manor
All characters start at level 7. Point buy is Standard [15 points], with standard starting wealth [23,500 gp], and Medium XP advancement. All first-party Pathfinder RPG material is allowed, with the exception of Variant Rulesets.
Firearms are available at the level of the Commonplace Guns rule. While still expensive and tricky to wield, early firearms are readily available. Instead of requiring the Exotic Weapon Proficiency feat, all firearms are martial weapons. Early firearms and their ammunition cost 25% of the amounts listed, but advanced firearms and their ammunition are still rare and cost the full price to purchase or craft. Modern firearms may exist, but only as rare and wondrous items—the stuff of high-level treasure troves.
In the event of permanent character death, rerolled characters enter the party at one level under the previously played character at the time of their death, with the commensurate standard starting wealth for that level. New characters played by new players come in at the average party level, with standard starting wealth.
