Two centuries ago, Delbara Axebringer—a mighty warrior and dwarven leader—slew the necromancer Audalot Karexin, but spared his young apprentice Zohiira, and for 200 years the bitter survivor brooded and plotted her revenge. Now, descendants of the Axebringer clan are vanishing—dragged screaming into the darkness by the animated bodies of their own fallen kin. With no great champions left among their family, the Axebringers turn to outside heroes to break their family curse. What mysteries lie sealed within Delbara Axebring’s abandoned ancient fortress? And what challenges block the blighted path winding through the Darklands beneath Golarion’s surface?
Down the Blighted Path is a deluxe adventure for 5th-level characters, and includes 64 action-packed pages of exciting battles, supernatural mysteries, and new monstrous foes, plus a gorgeous double-sided poster map featuring an overview of the dwarven trading post of Davarn and a miniatures-scale battlemap! The author of this adventure, Monica Marlowe, was the winner of the 2015 RPG Superstar contest, in which hundreds of unpublished authors compete for the chance to write a Pathfinder Module, and in addition to her adventure, this book contains a host of new monsters and magic items designed by the contest’s runners-up.
