|Blood on the StreetsA murderer stalks the streets of Magnimar! The guards are baffled, people huddle in their homes, and whispers spread of death delivered on dark wings. Desperate for aid, the city watch turns to bold adventurers, revealing more of the murders' gruesome details and bringing the heroes in on a daring plan to catch the killer—a plot that makes them a tempting target for the maniac's bloody knife. This dangerous plot sets the heroes on a path fraught with savage creatures, decades-old secrets, and the dark desires of an immortal evil that seeks to pervert a forgotten house of worship. Will they be able to put and end to the slaughter? Or will all of Magnimar drown in the rising tide of blood?
Dawn of the Scarlet Sun is an adventure for 5th-level characters, written for the Pathfinder Roleplaying Game and compatible with the 3.5 edition of the world's oldest RPG. The adventure takes place in the city of Magnimar, detailed in the Pathfinder Campaign Setting: Magnimar, City of Monuments and the starting point of the upcoming Shattered Star Adventure Path, and employs prepainted miniatures from the new Pathfinder Battles: Champions of Evil (Pathfinder Battles) Encounter Pack (sold separately), giving GMs everything they need to bring every encounter to brutal life!
