The paragon tier of the Scales of War Adventure Path concludes with "A Tyranny of Souls." The player characters, heroes of their world, have now all but driven the githyanki from the mortal realm. To strike a final blow to the threat posed by the invaders, they travel to the githyanki city of Tu'narath. There, they find unlikely allies, a chance to secure a lasting peace from the githyanki threat, and have a chance to finally end the menace posed by the githyanki. An adventure for 19th-level PCs.
