Shattered Star, Return To Varisia
The seven shards of the Shattered Star have been recovered, and the Pathfinders prepare a grand festival on Magnimar’s Irespan to celebrate this incredible achievement. The culmination of this celebration is to be the reassembly of the seven shards into the legendary Sihedron itself, rebuilt for the first time in over 10,000 years. But as the ritual to reforge the artifact is completed, ancient contingencies rumble to life, the dead heart of Thassilon begins to beat again, and all of Magnimar is put in terrible danger. With the power of the Sihedron on their side, the heroes take a stand against this risen evil—but will the aid of this ancient artifact be enough to save them all?
Many were the wonders created during Thassilon’s time, with the vast cyclopean monuments, the seven swords of sin, and strange clockwork constructs being among the most legendary. But the most significant wonder may also be the most ubiquitous in Thassilonian lore—the Sihedron.
This seven-pointed star appears often in Thassilonian writings and carvings, for it symbolizes more than just the seven schools of Thassilonian magic. It represents the seven virtues of rule, but also the seven deadly sins. It represents the seven runelords. It symbolizes the seven skymetals. It exemplifies the power of magic itself.
Varisia’s newest heroes have stumbled across a powerful relic from the ancient empire of Thassilon—yet the artifact has been sundered into seven fragments. The third of these fragments lies in the swampy Mushfens south of the city of Magnimar, hidden within an ancient, towering lighthouse known as the Lady’s Light. With squabbling boggards, troglodytes, and other swamp monsters dwelling around the ruins, approaching the Light will require either stealth or bravado. But the threats posed by slimy and scaly humanoids pale in comparison to the exiled Gray Maidens who have claimed the interior of the Light as their new headquarters, or to the sinister curse that afflicts the powerful, ancient caretaker of the ruin.
