A Scales of War Adventure Path adventure. The PCs return to Overlook, having once again averted disaster in Elsir Vale and gaining a potent new ally in the process. But they return to an uneasy city, and the warm welcome they've grown used to has chilled. Now there are rumors of something strange happening with the city's temples and shrines. As the PCs investigate, they uncover another startling truth of Overlook, the real reason the city has become so important in the war, and the nature of their true enemy in the city. An adventure for 9th-level PCs.

Now bizarre monstrosities are attacking Wellspring, and the heroes must uncover the nature of the threat seemingly unleashed by the missing adventurers. An adventure for 10th-level PCs.
