In Hell's Bright Shadow, an adventure by Crystal Frasier with additional material by Eric Hindley and Michael McCarthy, and fiction by Stephanie Lorée, was released on September 2, 2015. This adventure launches the landmark Hell's Rebels Adventure Path.

The Rebellion Begins!The city of Kintargo has long been a safe haven for artists, freethinkers, and those marginalized by the oppressive Chelish government, but now the city has been placed under martial law by inquisitor Barzillai Thrune. When a protest turns into a riot, a new group of heroes comes together to form an organized resistance against the devil-binding government and the church of Asmodeus—but can they survive long enough to establish allies? Or will they become the latest victims of the Thrice-Damned House of Thrune?
