Walkthrough for the Forsaken Mound area in Pathfinder: Kingmaker. Talk to the Defaced Sister in the Kellid Barbarian Camp to learn about this location. It’s part of the quests The Lost Relic and Along a Cold Trail, both of which are part of The Varnhold Vanishing main questline.

Map for the Forsaken Mound area in Pathfinder: Kingmaker.

Travel: Forsaken Mound

To reach this location from the Kellid Barbarian Camp, use the following directions:

  • West
  • South
  • South
  • Southeast
  • East

This entire area is resolved via Illustrated Book Episode, and this is a particularly simple one. While you have lots of options, you don’t need to succeed at any to complete the area. All you’ll get for going out of your way (aside from a trifling bit of danger) is experience, which invariably follows every successful check in this Illustrated Book Episode.

The quickest way to get through this is:

  • We said the word given to us by the Defaced Sister.
  • …moved ahead down the corridor.

There are lots of options here, and a few checks you can make, but none of them are conducive to achieving your goal. Sometimes the best option is to not poke around where you don’t belong and see to your business as quickly as possible. If you pass the [Lore (Nature)] check or the [Perception] check, you’ll gain some experience. Also, if you pick the option “…tried to clean the mold off the walls.“ you’ll get a [Knowledge (World)] check that also gives some experience if successful. If you want the most experience, give these checks a try.

  • [Knowledge (Arcana) 25] …examined the body of the Sister.

Again, you’ll get experience if you pass the optional [Lore (Religion)] check, but it’s not necessary. The [Knowledge (Arcana)] option doesn’t need to succeed, but you’ll get more experience if you do. Pass or fail, you’ll end up with the Cyclops Incense Burner for getting through this Illustrated Book Episode.

Complete the Illustrated Book Episode to obtain a “Cyclops Incense Burner”.

At the mansion of the Swordlord Jamandi Aldori, adventurers have gathered, lured by the promise of dominion should one of them conquer the nearby Stolen Lands and oust its current overlord - the Stag Lord. You are one such adventurer, and Jamandi’s offer isn’t just a benevolent call-to-arms to make the Stolen Lands safe for normal folk, there’s political angles to its conquest, and the ultimate allegience of its new ruler. More than that, however, a sinister, primordial force has her own interests in the Stolen Lands, and a desire to see new rulers rise… and fall. The Pathfinder: Kingmaker guide includes a full walkthrough of the game’s main campaign, including various side quests, companion quests and strategies.
