Things are really getting hot for the heroes in the Dawn of Flame Adventure Path. I had the pleasure to write the fourth adventure, The Blind City, available now! The heroes have acquired an ancient tablet that hints of strange technology and even stranger magic deeper inside the sun. The unusual expert capable of deciphering it speaks of Outer Gods, strange cults, and a prison of darkness hidden within the sun’s blazing light.
Outer Gods? Vile cults? Formless evil? Sign me up! I was overjoyed to create the cosmic horror of this adventure and add to the pantheon of inscrutable and all-consuming entities lurking beyond space and time. This particular evil entity, known to some occultists as the Incandescent Doom, is a being of light that burns away life, of brilliance that scours flesh and warps minds. What better place to anchor such a being than a lightless oubliette in the depths of the sun? Of course, the heroes receive a less than pleasant welcome when they journey to this isolated location.
This adventure is for 7th-level characters, and introduces several new monsters such as the pyric revenant and the dimensional shambler. This volume also presents a catalogue of bizarre gear and strange artifacts, an in-depth look at several cults of the galaxy and those who hunt them, and much more.
Be not illuminated by the Incandescent Doom!
No Peace in the Darkness!
