You've got a ship, you've made a name for yourself, but now it's time to get the recognition you've earned through blood and booty with our latest Pathfinder Adventure Path volume!
Now that your pirate crew has set up a home base in the isles of the Shackles, you're on a quest for something bigger: official recognition by the other Free Captains and the Hurricane King himself, Kerdak Bonefist! In "Tempest Rising", the third part of the Skull & Shackles Adventure Path, you'll have to impress the King's court with tests of skill, swords, and a "friendly" game of cards...but that's not going to be enough for some members of the Pirates' Council! As your rise to become a notorious pirate captain, you'll be invited to participate in the Free Captains' Regatta, a race that will draw upon all of your crews' experience and knowledge as you dive into the eternal hurricane known as the Eye of Abendego—and survive! More sinister dangers lurk, though, as rumors of a deadly plot rise up like flotsam from a storm, a plot that could have dire effects on the freedom-loving denizens of the Shackles!
Of course, our Adventure Path volumes aren't just about the adventure—we stuff 'em full of supporting material to make your games even more awesome! You'll get detailed background on key NPCs such as the druid ruler of Drenchport, Master of the Gales, treasures such as charts of the fair winds and ring of the iron skull, but you'll also get a gazetteer on the notorious capital of the Shackles, Port Peril! Will you gamble away your ill-gotten gold in the gambling halls of Crescent Harbor, or will you end up swinging from a rope in the Dead Man's Dance Hall for crossing the Hurricane King? The "Scourges of the Shackles" article details other threats of the Shackles, like the slaver Alahandra Boisich of the Cloudbuster's Dream, or the aristocrat-turned-pirate Cerise Bloodmourn of Come What May, but also threats from wind and wave! With a new Pathfinder Journal entry from Robin D. Laws, and an exciting assortment of new creatures for your Pathfinder Roleplaying Game, "Tempest Rising" will have you living the dangerous life of a pirate on the high seas!
