The Scales of War Adventure Path: part 9
by Kevin Kulp

The heroes must thwart a sophisticated and manipulative githyanki spy whose diplomatic skills have assured him safety within a human city. In the process, they can save potential githzerai allies from extermination, forge an alliance, infiltrate high society, and disrupt the lines of githyanki communication -- which will change the course of war. "Haven of the Bitter Glass" is an adventure for five 12th-level characters.
