Part IV of Spires of Xin-Shalast tells the tale of how our brave band – myself, a dwarf entitled Valgrim the Summoner, and my human comrades – Lord Roscoe Dillon, priest of Gorum, God of War; Phiravno the Varisian scarf fighter; Maru Maru, Shoanti Sun Clan monk; Vaelyn, Shoanti Sun Clan dragon shaman; Yenneck Grumman, Ranger of the Black Arrows – ended the schemes of Kharzoug the Claimer, Runelord of Greed. Inside his ruined capital of Xin-Shalast, indeed atop the very Runewell of Greed, we met him and withstood his arcane assault to end his life. Golarion slumbers, safer now but largely unaware of the fate our brave heroes averted.
And so ends the Rise of the Runelords campaign, almost exactly a year to the day after we began it. Props to Paizo Publishing for one of the best D&D campaigns ever, especially James Jacobs, Nick Logue, and Richard Pett.
But there’s no rest for the wicked! This week, we start the next Adventure Path, Curse of the Crimson Throne, this time using the Pathfinder RPG beta rules!
Thanks for all the summaries. I’ve really enjoyed reading them, and they’re a big help in running my own Rise of the Runelords campaign.
I’m looking forward to reading the Curse of the Crimson Throne summaries, both to see the campaign from a player point of view, and to find out if the Pathfinder Beta rules are really as good as they look.
So keep up the good work

“…and they lived happily ever after!” Can’t wait for the CotCT (With Pathfinder Rules? Wow. I will change to PFRPG as soon as the Beta is translated). Kudos for the great work. And have fun storming the castle.
