Race for the Runecarved Key, a Pathfinder Society Special by Kyle Baird and Tim Hitchcock, debuted in August 2012 at Gen Con Indy. The special was made available thereafter to regional conventions and game days and was released publicly in August 2013. At its Gen Con debut, the top-ranked tables in each subtier progressed to a second round of the adventure offered only that single time at Gen Con.

An ancient Thassilonian artifact has been unearthed in Magnimar and is to be auctioned off by the city government. In order to maintain good relations with those in power in the City of Monuments, the Pathfinder Society must obtain the relic without simply stealing it, although employing any other means necessary. It falls to the PCs to infiltrate the auction, sabotage the other bidders' efforts, and call in favors from those in the Society's debt to ensure the Runecarved Key (and the secrets it unlocks) belongs to the Pathfinders when the adventure draws to a close.
