Rise of the Runelords
Rise of the Runelords was the first adventure path released in the Pathfinder Adventure Path line and debuted in August 2007 as 6 separate adventure modules: Burnt Offerings, The Skinsaw Murders, The Hook Mountain Massacre, Fortress of the Stone Giants, Sins of the Saviors, and Spires of Xin-Shalast.
2012 saw the release of the Anniversary Edition which compiles the 6 adventures into one hardcover book. Additionaly Paizo Publishing released the Deluxe Collector’s Edition as a gorgeous oversized “magical tome” case with real metal casings, leather-like covers, and a working mechanical latch.
“From the idyllically peaceful coastal town of Sandpoint to an ancient lost city at the top of the world, Rise of the Runelords takes a party of adventurers from 1st to over 15th level and delves into the mysteries of Varisia’s ancient past. Millennia ago, the powerful empire of Thassilon ruled the land, dominated by despotic runelords who maintained their power through harnessing the power of rune magic. Thought gone forever, the working of Thassilon are not so far beneath the surface and one of the runelords plans a return to power. Only the brave adventurers stand in his way.”
