From the back of the book
A murderer stalks the streets of Magnimar! The guards are baffled, people huddle in their homes, and whispers spread of the 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 ploy 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 an 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 35 edition of the world's oldest RPG.
