The Shattered Star Adventure Path begins with a thrilling new adventure from fan-favorite author Greg A. Vaughan! In Varisia's bustling frontier city of Magnimar, the Pathfinder Society's newest lodge recruits a team of rookie Pathfinders to track down rogue agent Natalya Vancaskerkin - who also happens to be one of the Varisian criminals known as the Sczarni. Yet when these heroes track down the missing woman, they find far more than a Pathfinder on the run, becoming embroiled in a swiftly expanding hunt for a fragmented artifact from the ancient empire of Thassilon - a quest that will take them to some of the most dangerous corners of Varisia.
This volume of Pathfinder Adventure Path launches the Shattered Star Adventure Path and includes: "Shards of Sin," a Pathfinder RPG adventure for 1st-level characters, by Greg A. Vaughan. Also, an exploration of the ancient Sihedron artifact and its ties to powerful Thassilonian magic, as well as details on the mysterious skymetals that fall to Golarion, by James Jacobs. There are forays into the even seedier underbelly of Riddleport in the Pathfinder's Journal, by Bill Ward. Finally, five new monsters, by Benjamin Bruck, Craig Campbell, Adam Daigle, Amanda Hamon, and James Wilbur.
