The Half-Dead City, an adventure by Jim Groves with supporting material by Crystal Frasier, Will McCardell, and Michael McCarthy and fiction by Amber E. Scott, was released on March 26, 2014. It is the first chapter in the fourteenth Pathfinder Adventure Path, Mummy's Mask.

Treasures of the DeadThe Mummy's Mask Adventure Path begins with "The Half-Dead City," an exciting new adventure in the pyramid-laden realm of Osirion, Land of Pharaohs! In the city of Wati, the church of Pharasma holds a lottery allowing explorers to delve the tombs of the city's vast necropolis in search of the nation's lost glories. In the course of investigating dusty tombs and fighting their ancient guardians and devious traps, the heroes encounter a group of rival adventurers intent on keeping one tomb's treasures for themselves. At the same time, the heroes learn that a dangerous artifact has been stolen from the tomb. Can the adventurers defeat their rivals, or will they fall to the undead defenders of the city's necropolis?

This volume of the Pathfinder Adventure Path launches the Mummy's Mask Adventure Path and includes:


Foreword: "Here There Be Mummies" by Rob McCreary (4)

McCreary talks about his love of previous adventure modules set in Osirion, namely Entombed with the Pharaohs and The Pact Stone Pyramid. He discusses the similarities this adventure path has with those modules and why the authors for the six volumes were chosen.

1. "The Half-Dead City" by Jim Groves (6)

The players have formed an adventuring band that wants access to the tombs in Wati's necropolis. After participating in the lottery they explore their three assigned tombs. They encounter varieties of creatures undisturbed for years, as well as rival adventuring parties and other mysterious intruders.
