Hear the Cry of War!

In the exotic nation of Katapesh, a land of fortune and wonders, heroes are those with the courage to command their destinies. Such wisdom leads a daring band to the abandoned village of Kelmarane with the hopes of reestablishing the once prosperous community. But buzzards still feast upon the secluded settlement’s corpse: a savage tribe of gnolls and their bestial allies hold the town in the name of a merciless master known only as the Carrion King. Can the PCs retake the village from its feral conquerors, or is Kelmarane but the first bastion of civilization to fall before the hordes of the mysterious warlord?

The Legacy of Fire Adventure Path begins! This volume of Pathfinder Adventure Path features the first adventure by Paizo publisher Erik Mona since "The Whispering Cairn" began the Age of Worms Adventure Path in 2005, presents details on some of the most brutal gnoll tribes of the Brazen Peaks, and includes a Set Piece adventure revolving around a particularly demented and sinister hermit. In addition, New York Times best-selling author Elaine Cunningham kicks off her six-part novella, Dark Tapestry in the Pathfinder's Journal!

Foreword: "Genie War" by James Jacobs (4)

Editor-in-Chief James Jacobs illuminates the history of a genie-themed adventure path, reveals why it took so long before Erik Mona wrote a Pathfinder adventure, and sets the stage for the Legacy of Fire, the final adventure path to use the Dungeons & Dragons 3.5 rules set.
