I picked up the Anniversary Edition of Rise of the Runelords, the very first Pathfinder adventure path. This is my review of the second module, The Skinsaw Murders.

Serial killer on the loose

I'm a great fan of slasher flicks like Friday the 13th. Strangely, though, I have no interest in procedural serial killer stories like Se7en or Silence of the Lambs. Luckily, the way I see it, the Skinsaw Murders is flexible enough to be told either way you and your gaming group prefer. You can lead your players along a path of careful investigation and clues, or you can propel them through a murderous assault of the senses until the killer pops up from behind a hedge to claim his pound of flesh.

That summarizes the whole of the second module. There's a serial killer on the loose, and the player characters are recruited by Sandpoint's sherrif to take the lead in the investigation while he and his men maintain order.
