The Beast of Lepidstadt, a savagely cunning flesh golem, has long terrorized the simple folk of the land, murdering, robbing, and sowing carnage none can withstand. The mad golem’s reign of terror comes to an end, though, when captured mid-rampage. Yet, rather than destroy the monster, the enlightened council of the city of Lepidstadt insists the obviously thinking creature face a lawful trial. While on the trail of the Whispering Way the heroes find their fates intertwined with that of the Beast, enlisted to guard it against infuriated townsfolk, scholars of the macabre, and the slaves of its mad creator. When a violent attack releases the berserker, its trail leads to the laboratory lair of a mad scientist and his blasphemous creations, crazed conspirators in the maniacal plot of the Whispering Way.
A Pathfinder Roleplaying Game adventure for 4th-level characters, this volume continues the Carrion Crown Adventure Path, drawing on themes of classic horror stories and RPG adventures long awaited by Pathfinder players. In this adventure the heroes struggle to defend a creature that may or may not be murderous monster, along with facing violent golems, alchemical abominations, and killer machines in a dungeon of science gone mad. This volume also includes an in-depth look at Pharasma, mysterious goddess of fate, along with details on the Eternal Order of the Palatine Eye, one of Ustalav’s most manipulative and mysterious secret societies. Plus five terrifying new monsters in the Pathfinder Bestiary, new fiction in the Pathfinder’s Journal, and much more!
