House of the Beast, an adventure by Tim Hitchcock with support articles by Adam Daigle, Steve Kenson, Rob McCreary, and Sean K Reynolds, a set piece adventure by Rob Manning, and fiction by Elaine Cunningham, is the second chapter in the Legacy of Fire adventure path and was released in March 2009.

Where Evil Sleeps

For ages, the House of the Beast has loomed, black, ominous, and abandoned, a fortress of depravity raised by followers of the god of destruction. Now, a new evil has taken root within the dark citadel and the beastmen of the Carrion King threaten to cast the land into a new era of savagery. Only a strike against the murderous warlord himself can topple the ravenous gnoll war machine, but such a bold assault means a raid on the House of the Beast itself. Do the PCs dare enter the crumbling halls of this accursed fortress? And what treasures lie within the ruins’ depths that even the merciless Carrion King fears to claim?
